This B&B is as lovely as everyone says. We have stayed there twice because it is within walking distance of our son and daughter-in-law's place. Eric and Judy are wonderful hosts - this visit was Judy's chance to shine since Eric was away. The rooms are clean and charmingly furnished. Breakfast is served in a dining room with the original...

Everything about this BnB is great. The location can't be beat in Cambridge,MA. Equal distance between Harvard and MIT; minutes to the Central Sq T-station. Across the street from Whole Foods. Minutes to Mass Ave with variety of restaurants and shops. Eric and Judy are great hosts, very accommodating. The rooms are beautifully appointed; clean; bed was very comfortable. Breakfast... More

This historic inn is a charming, quaint and beautiful place to stay when visiting Harvard University which is close by. The ambience was warm and cozy and innkeeper very a attentive: There was . on premise parking but bring a small car. The village and hoot eating is in walking distance.

My wife,my son and I went for a weekend trip to Boston and rented the Charles suite (note that this specific suite is in the basement, but nonetheless comfortable and spacious) at Prospect Place B&B. We were warmly welcomed by a friend of the owner (the owners were off that weekend) and were immediately informed of all there was to... More

I took my 13 year old daughter on a road trip thru New England. Stopped in Boston/Cambridge for 3 days, 2 nights. The owners are very nice, and really helpful. Breakfast was delicious, and my daughter just loves the omelettes! Thank you for a great stay!! Will definitely return in the next couple years when we go on the college... More

I stayed at 112 Prospect the last half of July with my wife and teenage son. We stayed in the basement suite. It was more than adequate for us. It was decorated in antiques. My wife and I slept in a queen size bed separated from the living room. My son slept on a pull out couch. While the TV... More

Room was beautiful, location can't be beat ( 2 blocks from the Center square stop on the red line). The breakfasts were fantastic, and the conversation around the table in the mornings was highly entertaining; a lovely eclectic group of guests. Eric is warmlyry welcoming, and very knowledgeable about the area

We visited Cambridge for my daughter's college tour and stayed at Prospect Place five days. It is an amazing property. Rooms were comfortable. One felt safe and the proprieters made everyone present feel at home. Breakfasts were amazing, as were the details throughout the house. A certain stop our nect visit to the Boston area.

We had a great time at breakfast both mornings - was able to accommodate us a little earlier than the 8:00 set time. All good food: granola, juice, scones, french toast. The location is perfect - very close to the T. We were able to park our car and explore the city without worrying about parking. Great place to stay!

I stayed at Prospect Place for a weekend while attending events at Harvard. It’s within easy walking distance of Harvard (15-20 minutes) and near the Central T stop (one stop away from the Harvard stop). Even before I arrived the service was very good, with Eric responding promptly to my emails. I stayed in the Madeline Room. Both the room... More
