Well located, homey, and comfortable. The best home-cooked breakfast imaginable, with freshly baked bread and interesting other guests (4 when I was there), so I had to force myself to get out in the morning. Very modern bath(s) and nice touches in the amenities (for ex., locally made soaps). TV in the room. A sitting room downstairs, for people waiting... More

Our recent stay in the Madeline room at the Prospect Place B&B was very relaxing, comfortable, and quiet. The host, Eric, is personable, polite and accommodating. The breakfast was simple and delicious, served on nice china in a beautifully decorated Victorian dining room. We also enjoyed the perfect location, which is centrally located in Cambridge near great restaurants and easy... More

I have just spent six nights here and found it a delightful experience. I loved the Victorian decor and ambience, towards which a lot of thought has been given. All the furniture, fittings and artefacts have been chosen with great taste and fit together beautifully to provide a most pleasing and restful atmosphere. Eric personally overseas the comfort of his... More

Thanks for the lovely review, Andrew. It was a pleasure having you with us last week. It's worth noting that you stayed in our back-up/reserve room on the top floor - not regularly used for the B&B. It has wonderful skylights and a Persian carpet. This is the same room that another guest earlier in July had stayed in for... More

Great centrally located B + B in Cambridge near subway, restaurants, Harvard and MIT. Eric is a wonderful host, and very helpful with directions about site seeing. Breakfast is delicious with lots of healthy choices too, and across the street is a Whole Foods with hot and cold buffet. Our room was spacious and airy, decorated with antiques.

Thanks for your nice comments. It was great having you with us last week. Your sense of humor and adventure were an asset to the wonderful mix of guests we had. Very cool that you were married and lived around here at the beginning of your careers and are now returning to visit a son, who recently moved to Cambridge... More

This was our first experience at a B&B and our first time in Boston. It was a wonderful experience and Eric was just wonderful. Great food, very convenient. We stayed in the Madeline room which was quaint, clean and inviting. The breakfast was delicious.

Really you will feel at your home with Eric and Judi!! Great stay, location and beautiful home. You can reach MIT and Harvard university. I advise you to try it!!! I definitely stay at Prospect place when I will come back to Boston. Eric was an excellent host and very accommodating.

Very nice B&B. Great location between Harvard and MIT. Close to mass transit, good restaurants and local attractions. Pretty house, good breakfast and nice host. Our room was comfortable and had a nice view of the garden. We would stay here again if we are in the area. Please note that some rooms have a shared bath. If this is... More

Eric & Judy have a beautiful Victorian home that they have renovated into a beautiful Victorian B&B. Our first time to Boston/Cambridge was in November 2013, and we stayed in the Charles Suite. The accommodations were so wonderful that we booked a second trip over the Fourth of July weekend in 2014 to take in the Boston Harbor fest, including... More

Thanks so much for your kind words and great tips about restaurants and other things in the neighborhood as well. This review is an excellent example of guests who have stayed more than once in two different suites and liked things about both. We also really value the comment about us being "good listeners." We do value input from our... More

A great place from where to explore Harvard University and downtown Boston. The T - subway - station is a three minute walk so all sights are at your doorstep. Also Logan airport can be reached easily with public transportation. We took a taxi though because of the heat ($40). The owners, Eric and Judy, are great hosts with a... More

I had booked a room with a private bath. When I arrived, I was shown to a dingy room at the top of the house, with no bath. When I said that I had booked one with a private bath, the owner said he knew that, but someone had checked in who had booked more nights than I had, so... More

We are truly sorry that this guest was so unhappy with the room they stayed in and certainly for anything that was less than clean. For the record, all of our windows are double-paned and, while the bathroom they had was not attached to the room, it was clean and definitely dedicated to their use only for the night they... More
