If you are planning to visit Cambridge, MA and you do not want to stay in a large hotel where you are one person among many and you want a lot of attention and care, then stay at this lovely B & B. Its location halfway between MIT and Harvard is the perfect jumping off place to work and play... More

Prospect House is an easy walk to Harvard University (I was there with my wife for a conference) and the Red line to anywhere in Boston. The house is charming and the breakfast was delicious. I would definitely recommend this B and B. Great place!

We stay at B&Bs whenever we can and always at the top of the list in comfort and hospitality is Prospect Place. The place is stunning and the location is so convenient for visiting any corner of the Boston metro area. We were just on a trip for a college visit and we, along with the other guests, were raving... More

Wonderful owners and hosts! Atmosphere one of peacefulness and intellectual stimulation-surrounded by lots of books, interesting and helpful magazines,and a piano! The breakfasts are delicious and the coffee non- stop! Close to MIT & Harvard-walking distance-and good restaurants, too. Looking forward to going back soon.

We stayed 3 nights at Prospect Place in May and had a wonderful experience. The host was exceptionally nice and a pleasure to talk with. The breakfasts varied each day and all were outstanding -- a definite highlight of the day. The house is lovely and tastefully decorated. We stayed in the Madeline room which was a bit tight, but...

We had such an amazing visit. The owner was super nice, the rooms are gorgeous and the breakfast was super fresh and home-made delicious goodies, we loved the granola!!! Location was ideal, a 10 minutes stroll to Harvard square. Great restaurants nearby. Would come and stay here again each time we visit Cambridge.

We've stayed at Prospect Place twice now for two recent visits to the Cambridge area and we have been very pleased both times. Our first stay was in the Madeleine room, a queen bed room on the second floor. This is a cute, cozy room that would be charmingly perfect for a single traveler. Our most recent stay was in... More

I recently stayed at Prospect Place while I was working for a week in Boston. The B&B is beautifully decorated with antique rugs and furniture, and the room (Madeline) was warm and cozy, with a private bathroom. Eric made me a delicious breakfast each morning, with freshly made coffee, pastries from a local bakery, organic yogurt, and eggs made to... More

We were very pleased with our choice of Prospect Place during a recent visit to Boston for the holidays. The Florence Room was clean and spacious, and provided comfortable chairs for reading, a desk for writing, and a day bed for arranging what we needed each morning. Eric was a warm and engaging host who made each and every guest... More
