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

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

We enjoyed our stay at the Prospect Place. Eric was an excellent host and very accommodating. The room was good. Our room had a double bed and we are used to a queen. Honestly a queen wouldn't fit in there. Our room didn't have a TV so if you have to have TV, you are out of luck. It didn't... More

Eric and Judy were wonderful hosts during my week in Cambridge on a business trip. They accommodated my varying start times each morning with a wonderful breakfast to start my day! My room was perfect and Eric was always offering assistance! They are at the acceptable government rates for business travelers so Prospect Place is a great alternative to the... More

On a recent holiday to Boston we stayed with Eric and his wife and were very impressed with this tasteful elegant B&B in Cambridge. Would thoroughly recommend this haven in a busy city. Very convenient for all Boston attractions and the breakfasts are delicious and plentiful. Eric is a charming host and makes your stay feel like a home from... More
