First of all the room was clean and the breakfast was okay for B&B standard. But the room was dark, ancient and not very comfortable. The wifi in our room was unfortunately very bad. Other guest we met at breakfast told us the same. The walk to the red line takes about 10 minutes which is ok. On the way... More

I stayed here for a few nights for business. The location is perfect for my purpose of travel. It is near from Davis square and Porter square. If you have business near Cambridge area, this could be useful. The room is rather small and has not much space except for the bed. The bathroom is somewhat unnecessarily large and has... More

The people were wonderful, our room was comfortable and breakfast was yummy. I can't wait to go back! This is a great place for enjoying Boston and it's environs. It is convenient to public transportation too.

I have stayed at this historic B&B,ideally located for anyone visiting Harvard University, a mile or so to the south many times. Andrea, the inn keeper is always cheerful,helpful and competent. I'd love to see a more elaborate continental breakfast, but for the price it suffices. The Inn itself has two buildings and a cottage in the back. I try... More

A beautiful house, with beautiful deco and friendly people. My father and stepmother always prefer to stay there whenever they come to visit me from NYC. The price is good too, plus free parking, free internet and breakfast

While my daughter was a student at Tufts, this was my home away from home. Walking distance from campus, near restaurants and easy to get to. The rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast is lovely. Now that she's graduated, I find myself looking for excuses to stay at A Cambridge house.

We've stayed here several times. The rooms are quite large, the area is quiet and the continental breakfast more than adequate. Walking distance to Porter Square, Harvard Square and tons of restaurants.

This B&B is a gem with numerous facets. The location: right on Mass. Ave. on the outskirts of Boston, it is easy to drive to, easy to find, and has parking! Also, it is only a five minute walk to lovely Davis Square with restaurants, bars, and the red line of the T. And, there is a Permberton Farms across... More
