stayed there 5 nights. chose it because I wanted to optimize my American experience and also because one review said that Blue works at the Harvard Museum of Natural History(how interesting!). Blue & John were sweet. I loved whatever little interaction I had with them. I just can't forget Blue's thoughtfulness in coming to check on my coat, on the... More

Comfortable bed, gracious room, good location. Had a very satisfied stay. This is a great example of the many gracious, older homes typical of of Cambridge which adds to the overall experience any trip. (I am a former Cambridge resident)

If you're visiting Cambridge for any reason, I would recommend Blue's for its location - it's an easy walk to Harvard, Radcliffe, and many other Colleges/Universities. We also enjoyed the diversity of people we met there - from the Netherlands, Germany, and Italy - all staying with Blue and doing business with one college or another. I would describe our... More

Overpriced for simple bed & Breakfast w/ shared bathroom. Had trouble getting past old carpet on bathroom floor; mold on shower curtain and bath mat. Was a very quiet and pretty area, surrounding homes and yards that were beautiful. Guest were very friendly.

Thanks for your comments. The bathroom rug and bathmat were promptly replaced. There's now a new thermostat-controlled separate heating system in the big Studio room, as well, so that room can be as cozy as the guest wishes. Hope you'll try us another visit. Blue More

Great host! Comfortable room. Well located to explore Cambridge. Walking distance to Porter Square. 10-15 minutes from Harvard Square.

We were in Boston on our honeymoon and found Blue's B&B looking for something close in to the university as we had a meeting to arrange. Blue was very accommodating around our meeting. The breakfast was very good, every day something new and tasty. The room (and the whole house) was clean and neat with an intriguing collection of furnishings... More

This lovely home is very convenient for visiting Boston generally and Cambridge in particular. My room was spacious and attractively decorated and Blue cooked a delicious breakfast in the morning for the guests. It is very good value for money as this is usually an expensive town to visit

My husband and 10 yr old daughter stayed here for one night and will definitely return. Blue and her husband are warm, conscientious hosts, and their B&B reflects a love for art and travel. Blue works at Harvard's Museum of Natural History and her excitement about it is contagious. We enjoyed it immensely. If you want a quiet place to... More

I have really pondered what to write here. We had such a hard time finding a relatively nice & inexpensive place to stay in the Boston area. We found Blue's and, I would stay again. It's close to the Porter T station, Harvard Square, and many great restaurants. However, there was something off that everyone I was traveling with couldn't... More

I was also staying at this very same B&B with the above reviewer (CVictor from Spain, and I'm from Singapore). We were situated in opposite rooms, come from almost exactly opposite sides of the world, have never met before this, staying for different periods (mine was 3 weeks, longer than his!) - but our feelings of Blue's B&B are the...
