Irving House provided such a comfortable and relaxing stay for our first stay in the Cambridge and Boston area in July of 2012. It is set on a quiet and peaceful street with such close proximity to the beautiful grounds of Harvard and the quick eats that a college town provides. We absolutely loved wandering the streets back to Irving House after a day of exploring. There is much to do and see within walking distance of Irving House and it is close to the red line subway stops so that you can easily travel to Boston.
Irving House provided a quality breakfast with plenty of choices in the cute dining area. The staff consistently restocked and cleaned so we were always able to fuel up before our long days of exploring. We also loved coming back and eating our desserts or drinking our coffee on the deck. The room was a perfect size for two travelers and our bed was very comfortable. The only thing we would have liked to change was being able to control the temperature of our own room. Unfortunately, it was a very hot week and we had a few very warm nights in the room. The staff responded nicely with fans and we understood that being in an older building full of history may sometimes inhibit it from the most modern amenities. Irving House is full of charm and a wonderful staff. We loved the variety of books to "swap" and the overall quality of our stay. Can't wait to return!
