It is obvious that Byron's, Karen's and Doane's passion is hospitality. During our stay they listened, facilitated and helped us to find our way in the B&B, Cambridge, and the surroundings. We had booked the West-room which is on the back of the house next to the kitchen and in front of the bathroom. The rooms were very clean and... More

I had a great time here during my stay in September. Byron was very helpful and made sure that our stay was as good as it was. The breakfast was great. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a place in Cambridge or Boston area. The public transit is also very good making it easy to get around... More

I spent a week staying at this B & B for a work trip- and I'd strongly recommend it to others. IT's a beautiful old building, located in one of the most picturesque parts of Boston, and walking distance from great restaurants and Harvard Sq. The owners and the manager also really care about you having a good experience, and... More

Having travelled for 24 hours in total from Ha Noi, Viet Nam to Cambridge, I finally landed in the small but cosy B&B late in the evening and was wellcomed by Byron Jordan. He gave me the opportunity to choose the room and advised me which room was less noisy. I immediately felt like I was at home with care... More

Suddenly without a place to stay, I was fortunate enough to get a room at "A B & B in Cambridge". The guesthouse exceeded my expectation, to say the least. The staff is super friendly and serves guests delicious crepés for breakfast! Everything is neat and clean; my room was good and the kitchen a clean and cozy place. While... More

Rooms are hard to come by during graduation month! Our daughter found this non-descript B&B, and they had a room available for our six-day stay! The outside of this B&B is very non-descript. You would not even know a B&B resided inside! The room we occupied was very comfy, as well as nicely appointed. The bed was very comfortable (I... More

We needed to take a spur of the moment trip up to Cambridge (from Long Island). We were going to book a hotel, but found this B&B instead. The rate was more reasonable than the hotels, and just a few blocks from Harvard. Really conveniently located. We booked a queen bed room, but they upgraded us to a king at... More

Great location, right near Harvard, and a short walk from the Harvard Square T station. The B&B is on the third floor of a beautiful old Cambridge brownstone. The staff was friendly and helpful. We especially enjoyed the interesting conversation over breakfast. The room was clean, with free wi-fi and TV. The bed was comfortable, the shared bathroom was well-appointed,... More

If you're looking for a glossy, face-less hotel, this isn't it. If you insist on en-suite and 'all you can eat' breakfasts, this won't suit you at all. But we certainly weren't looking for these things. We wanted character, a warm welcome, freedom and creative inspiration and this B and B delivered in spades. The third floor of a Cambridge... More

"A true home away from home! A B&B in Cambridge is a warm and welcoming environment that lacks all feeling of transiency. An ideal solution for a weary traveler. Hosts Doane Perry and Karen Carmean are respected members of the Cambridge Community for more than 30 yrs. Thoughtful, kind and helpful. Genuinely concerned about the safety and well-being of each...
