We stayed 3 nights to visit our son who is at Harvard. It is a beautiful home, very clean, warm and comfortable. Eric is a great host and makes delicious breakfasts. We slept well, the beds were very comfortable, ate well and enjoyed Eric's company and helpful tips to get around Cambridge and Boston. It is a peaceful, genteel oasis... More

Eric is the most helpful and gracious host you can possibly find. He helps with suitcases and also lays on a lovely breakfast of home-made granola, bread and cakes.He even offered to drive us to collect a hire-car in Boston. Eric, who is a trained musician, has a grand piano and gorgeous period furniture in the main living room, which... More

Thanks so much for your kind words. It was a pleasure having you with us. Our location to the T to get just about anywhere easily and quickly in Cambridge and metro-Boston is hands-down the closest of any B&B in our city. The Charles Suite, with its extra spaciousness and contemporary bathroom, is a favorite of many guests, who especially... More

All, My wife and I were in Cambridge for a program that she was attending at Harvard, and we both absolutely enjoyed our stay with Eric. The property is beautifully maintained, the breakfasts are awesome, the walk to Harvard(up Harvard St., by the way)and the fact that Whole Foods is across the street are all very positive attributes of the...

I am a member of a local environmental organization that hosted an annual fundraising event at the Prospect Hill Bed & Breakfast. We shopped around for weeks pricing locations and found all the local venues out of our price range or unaccommodating to our needs. Thanks to the owners Robert and Judy (who bent over backwards to help us) we... More

We couldn't have asked for a more helpful host. Eric helped us when we were struggling to get to his place from the airport, otherwise we would still be struggling with the Boston highways. Our stay was relaxing and comfortable and the breakfasts were worth getting up for. Location was convenient and Eric's recommendations for visits in Boston were really... More

My friend and I stayed at Prospect Place B&B while in Cambridge for work. The location is very convenient in terms of public transportation, only 5 minutes walk from the subway and 15 minutes from Harvard Square. Eric was very helpful and accommodating, as was everyone. The house is absolutely beautiful! (a bit like being in a Jane Austin movie)... More

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
