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

Everything was good and the breakfast was memorable, with super home cooked fruit and jams - which have won awards at a local show. Our hosts were very helpful, experienced and attentive to our needs, which included getting some valuable tips for local tourism. It's worth noting that we had to drive for a bit less than 10 minutes to... More

In a nutshell: an excellent value for the money. We stayed here for a week while visiting family and friends in the area and really enjoyed it. The basement suite (room 307) is perfect for families with older kids; our tween daughter enjoyed having her own space on the double futon in the kitchen/eating area. If you don't mind not... More

Nothing fancy. We stayed in the contemporary building which is a Victorian that has been gutted and converted to hotel/motel accommodations. For the $160/night we paid we were very happy with the level of cleanliness. The accommodations are simple: the room we had was on the small side and the bathroom is very close to the foot of the bed.... More

this was our second stay here. The room was very comfortable and a short walk to Harvard square. The restaurants and shops in Cambridge were nearby. We also spent one day in the area around TD garden. Easy to get to from the train stop. Breakfast was average but the coffee was excellent!

a place to stay if you will be spending a lot of time in your room or if you are looking for a family-feeling small B&B. Early checkout times are not that convenient. The immediate neighborhood on Massachusetts Avenue is pretty drab but Porter and Davis Squares are walkable and offer restaurants and subway access. Parking is convenient, so a... More

One of the other reviewers suggests that this is more like a small hotel than a typical B&B and I agree. The staff is accommodating, but impersonal. The rooms are clean and ours was small (201). There are none of the special amenities that typically one would expect in a bed and breakfast. The breakfast had hard boiled eggs, cereal,... More

Coming to cambridge can be sometimes annoying: few hotels and very expensibe. This b&b is a very good choice. The price is affordable, continental breakfast is included, wifi connection is included. You are 500 m from the metro. I will come likely.

This property is in a remote corner of Cambridge but is easily accessible to Harvard via Mass Ave. Use a map and not your GPS! It is clean and has free parking if you arrive early enough. If not, I don't know what you do. The "new" rooms lack character and the lobby of the main building needs all of... More

We stayed here the week end of our wedding, leaving our house to family and enjoying a little quiet time and luxury for ourselves. They offer both traditional and contemporary rooms. Our traditional room was beautifully decorated and had every possible convenience (except no bathtub-- but great shower). Breakfast is in another lovely room and was very diverse and of... More
