This lovely and well-maintained B&B is located very close to Davis Sq. which has shops, restaurants, banks, and a subway station to down town Boston. The room was very comfortable and clean, breakfast was enjoyable and was held around one large table, which allowed getting to know the other guests (most of them for the second or more times!).

Amazingly close to the T, which is only a 10-15min from Boston. Also located in Davis which is a great little town to walk around and enjoy the live music and great food. Planning to stay there again next time.

My husband and I recently stayed in the Warren Sparrow Room at Morrison House. The room was spacious with ample room for personal belongings. The bed was very comfortable, and there was a nice easy chair too. We enjoyed leaving the ceiling fan on at night, though the air conditioner worked quite well. This room has an extra sink outside...

Traveled to Somerville, Mass. To visit family. We had no prior experience with this bed & breakfast but location was excellent so we booked it. Keyword is excellent - location - two blocks from Davis Square and T station, facility was clean and modern inside, and hosts were friendly and accommodating.

There's not much to add to the uniformly excellent reviews of this rather remarkable bed-and-breakfast guest house. The attention to detail is quite extraordinary: ample supplies of paper handkerchiefs, stationery supplies, mugs and glasses, water in the fridges, information about local eating-places, instructions on how to use various gadgets, an ingenious key-pad code that no-one can forget, one for every...

Staying at the Morrison House B&B, it is hard to imagine that you are only a couple of blocks from the bustle of Davis Square. My husband, teenage daughter, and I had the top floor suite, which included two bedrooms (one quite large), bathroom, and balcony deck. The rooms are well appointed, with plenty of space to sit and work/read,... More

With powerful, hot showers, effective air-con, comfortable beds and a delicious breakfast, Morrison house fulfilled all our requirements. It's a short walk to Davis T station, and Davis Square's restaurants and cafés are perfect for an evening meal after spending the day in Boston.

This place is a true gem! Beautiful and large, well kept plants and garden, in the most charming Somerville neighborhood - it's location was perfect for me as I visited an old friend in the area. I arrived late, but all necessary arrival arrangements were made very simple for me. I stayed in the Morrison room, a large 2nd story... More

This was by far the cleanest B&B I've stayed in on my trip to the states. How the owners manage to keep everything so tidy (even with a cat wandering around!) is beyond me. The owners really have thought of everything: there is a guest computer, printer, wireless internet in every room, even cat hair rollers in the rooms -... More

I made a last minute decision to stay in Sumerville; it was fortunate there was availability at the Morrison House the nights I needed. I was able to walk to my business appointments, take the T at Davis Circle, find good restaurants for both take out and eat in and leave my car parked at the B&B. The room was... More
