Host Carolyn is very friendly and welcoming, the property is in a mature neighbourhood, close to Fresh Water Pond that has a well developed path for walking. Access to Harvard square by bus is approximately 15 min, and Carolyn was able to provide details and information about the buses. What was disappointing was that the breakfast was granola,fruit and toast... More

Great find in a nice quiet area on the edge of Cambridge (it may even be just technically outside) but don’t be put off if central Boston is your target. Five minute walk down the road and buses to go direct to the Harvard Metro and onwards for the short ride to the city. Pick up your Charlie Card travel... More

Carolyn's B&B is a delightful break from expensive hotels in Cambridge area. It is a short walk to the bus stop into Harvard Square or Boston, or call a taxi. We used the off street parking. Carolyn has a lovely back yard to relax in. There are fun art pieces to enjoy. Just up the street is a funky coffee... More

Carolyn is great, loved the room too with private bathroom. Good location, nice/safe nieghbourhood about 8 minutes by bus from Harvard Square. Carolyn is helpfull and has lots of local knowledge. I would have no problem staying here again. I was a little sad to leave, I loved Boston too.

My family and I stayed at Carolyn's Bed and Breakfast for just over a week this past summer, and we were really pleased with the location, cleanliness, quality of the accommodation, and best of all there was air conditioning! There are two bedrooms on the second floor (one room had a queen or double bed, and the other had two... More

I have had the great opportunity to stay at this Cambridge/Boston B&B over the past few years. The B&B has two very tastefully decorated second floor bedrooms. It also has free off street parking. If you like smaller more personable B&B then you will not be disappointed.

Carolyn is a lovely lady, making breakfast whilst having a chat. This B&B is one of the those that feels like you're staying over at someone's home, more than renting a room in a B&B. It's neat clean and comfortable, suited to simply sleeping, having a light breakfast and touring Boston. The bus is a few minutes walk away. Street... More

I was in Cambridge to visit a couple of schools and had trouble finding anything under $200/night. I came across the website for Carolyn's B&B and was quoted a rate that was well within my budget. The room was spacious with an ensuite bathroom. Breakfast was great, including the homemade granola and fresh baked bread mentioned by another reviewer. One... More

Had a lovely stay at this bed and breakfast with my partner for a family reunion- we stayed the week end. The amenities were impeccable, spacious bedroom, private and clean bathroom. The house is decorated with eclectic and wonderful taste of mid-century pieces and country antiques. We were greeted for breakfast with a lovely, heathy breakfast of homemade granola and... More
