I spent one night in the "scholar's room" before beginning a summer program at Harvard. It was very well-decorated and right in the middle of a nice area in which to dine and shop. It's just a stone's throw from the campus. Reasonable prices and lovely breakfast.

I stayed in "The Cambridge" (top floor, in the back away from the street). It was very quiet (I slept with the windows open and it was very peaceful). The room was just right, with excellent WIFI (which I needed for my work), and it was very luxurious to have breakfast appear each morning, precisely on the minute requested, in... More

My wife (Chinese) and I (French) spent 2 nights in this wonderful B&B in Cambridge in May and both loved it. David was very welcoming and made us feel home instantly. The quiet room we stayed in was beautifully decorated and you could notice easily the attention that has been brought to every detail. Especially the lighting system which creates... More

Stayed 5 nights in The Scholar. A perfect room for one out of the main thoroughfare of Harvard square but an easy walk to everything that Harvard has to offer. The room itself was snug (still very cold out) and very well fitted with plenty of storage and nice little details like sewing kit, clothes brush, ironing board etc. good... More

Spent several days on business in the Cambridge Suite. Breakfast arrives at the appointed time via dumb waiter. The room was clean, well-equipped with extra large towels and even umbrellas. The area of town is very convenient to Harvard, but quieter than hotels closer to Harvard Square.

We stayed in the Victorian room, which was lovely, with a sunny view overlooking what we were assured will be a garden when the February snows finally melt. The room has a desk and table and chairs and sofa and a beautiful carved bed. Best of all, it has lights you can actually read by! Our host was knowledgeable and... More

This is a small B&B, but a delightfully private spot with exceptional location and gracious host. We stayed three nights in the Cambridge suite. It was spotless and quiet. The host was there to meet us, gave wonderful instructions and Cambridge (city) insight and then we had total privacy. The breakfast was perfect - coffee, juice, English muffins and cereal... More

I stayed here for a weekend in the upstairs room with king size bed. Very nice large room with small ante room with table to eat breakfast.Cozy place with great location! Breakfast is limited to english muffins and museli cereal, about as much as i ever eat for breakfast, but don't expect a hot breakfast. I will go back.
