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

Instead of staying at a Harvard Conference Hotel, my partner and I chose to stay at this charming "Prospect Place" for 4 nights: 2 in the Florence Room and 2 in the Charles Suite. The second-floor Florence Room was elegantly, large, and smart, and the nice, large bathroom, to be shared with guest(s) from the Emma Room, is down the... More

Prospect place is a delightful comfortable and quiet B&B in busy Cambridge, a great place to relax. The owners are fabulous hosts and they take real pride in caring for their guests, and you feel it. The breakfasts are exquisite and leisurely. It's our favorite place to stay in Cambridge.

Located 1 T stop from Harvard, this was the perfect place to stay while visiting our freshman student. After a busy day of touring the campus, attending events, climbing stairs in classroom buildings and museums, Prospect Place was a great place to relax, put up our feet and unwind. The room was quiet and well furnished with lots of comfy... More

My wife and I just returned from the Prospect Place B&B and our first B&B experience and it was a fantastic 10 day stay. Eric was there for us whenever we needed him from the breakfasts, to where to go eat and what to see. We will be back! Being only 2 blocks from the subway, the location was just... More

Prospect Place is ideally located in Cambridge. It's only 5 minutes from the nearest Subway and about 20 minutes walking distance to either Harvard or MIT. We stayed here on a visit to Boston as it was better value for money than staying the other side of the river. It's only 4 or 5 stops to the centre of Boston.... More

We have recently spent four wonderful days in the ‘Prospect Place’ (The Charles Suit) B&B, Cambridge, MA. That was my first experience with B&B and exceeded all my expectations: we enjoyed the atmosphere of the historic Victorian style house, impressive breakfasts (beautifully served by our host Eric), convenient location, interesting library, comfortable bathrooms… I would strongly recommend this place. Dobrovolsky’s... More

My husband and I stayed here this past weekend while in town for a wedding. The room was comfortable, the owner welcoming, and the location hard to beat. Despite being move in weekend at Harvard the place felt like a retreat.
