Lots of owners are praised for being responsive and kind. David is just an original. David IS Parkside on Ellery. Without gilding the lily (anyone can do that) it's enough to say that this place is classic, clean, elegant, warm, enticing, genuine and like a Victorian quilt when you really need a snuggle. Go.

I am a Harvard student and my mother came to visit me for a few days the week before Commencement 2014. I had to make a last minute reservation and was a bit uncertain about picking a bed and breakfast over a hotel. Now, I have to say that I won't ever have my mother staying anywhere else but Parkside... More

I stayed here with my daughter while showing her around cambridge and visiting a college there. It was within close walking distance to Harvard Square where we had plenty of options for eating out, browsing bookstores, indoor Cambridge pools, and shopping. David was wonderful in that he was available immediately upon our arrival, helped us with our luggage, provided a... More

Parkside on Ellery B&B has a great location, close to the train station and to the main attractions in Cambridge. The room we stayed was super cozy, clean, impeccable. David, the owner, is a great host, gave us many good suggestions about places to visit in Cambridge and Boston and prepared a lovely breakfast every morning.

My wife and I stayed at Parkside for a romantic/sightseeing weekend- Friday to Monday- and it was exactly what we hoped for. The location was outstanding, in walking distance to the heart of Harvard and Cambridge, in a very quiet neighborhood, and walking distance to the train. The hotel was very cozy, very clean, and the manager, David, was at... More

Excellent service, comfortable room. I was delayed and didn't arrive until the very small hours but David was there to meet me and check me in. Very quiet location within easy walking distance of Harvard square.

I spent a week at Parkside On Ellery, very cozy, quiet and charming place. David, the owner, is very friendly and discrete. I also enjoyed breakfast, of continental type and healthy. Stefano (from Italy)

Our stay was lovely! The rooms are neat, clean, and all unique. David was very friendly and helpful and the value is terrific. About a five minute walk to Harvard Square it's super convenient. Highly recommended especially for parents visiting kids at Harvard or one of the many colleges in Boston.

The room, breakfast, and price were all very good, but the location was fabulous, opposite a small park, close to Harvard Square. There was a small grocery and many restaurants within a few blocks. On street parking was not a problem, much to my surprise.

Parkside on Ellery was a charming place to stay, and at a considerable discount to Cambridge-area hotels of the same quality. If you are there to visit Harvard it is an ideal location. My business was actually in Kendall Square, so it was somewhat less convenient, but I was easily able to get a cab in the mornings when I... More
