This is a cute house in a great location within walking distance to Harvard square. There are plenty I restaurants a and nice, safe place to walk around in the evening. The accommodations were just ok. The room was tiny. I expected small and quaint, B&B style, but this room was so small my husband could almost touch both sides... More

Cambridge is expensive, so I was not expecting too much. The entire building is decorated in the 20's style. Slow music plays in the background in the dinning room. 10 min walk to the red line station. Some rooms look better than others. I unfortunately was assigned to an attic room. The ceiling is super low. If you are over... More

We have stayed here numerous times over the last 6 years. The location for Tufts University is hard to beat but it is at best described as a quirky place. Rooms-tiny. Towels-small. Breakfast-store bought and nothing special. Price-not tiny. Still it has it unique charm. It may just not be right for you.

Stay there so frequently- just my favorite place in MA. You feel the warmth the moment you walk in the door.everything is wonderful -the location, the convenient parking ,the immaculate rooms-that are perfectly equipped. Love that coffee & tea are available all day! Great selection of sweet cakes, fruit & cereal in the morning .

This quintessential New England Inn is always a treat to stay at. Led by innkeeper Andrea the staff is cordial and makes everyone feel at home. It is beautfuly decorated, especially its classic rooms with attractive canopy beds. Situated about a mile from city center and Harvard Square, parking is never an issue. Few inns can offer the great value... More

Comfortable B& B with free parking, some nearby restaurants, convenience store, organic food store, and reasonable walk to T-station/Davis Square. The breakfast is ok - nothing special. Overall, a good value.

Stayed several weeks ago at this B&B. Have been here before but stayed years ago in the main building. Looks very pretty on the outside, outdated on the inside. I stayed in a Victorian room years ago which had a very comfy bed but a very noisy a/c and was a bit creepy. Bathroom was super small and tv was... More

My boyfriend and I booked a last minute trip to Boston and we were lucky enough to find this B&B for a great price. They offer free parking and breakfast is included. The parking was definitely a selling point for us since you have to pay for parking at most of the hotels in Boston and it's not cheap! The... More

Have stayed here several times times ONLY due to location being near family . We have stayed in both the Victorian and contemporary inns. Both are very cheaply done. The Contemporary room are decorated in early garage sale decor with cheap quality linens, very small TVs and small bathrooms with no space for toiletries and showers which are almost impossible...

The rooms are a good size, but not luxurious. Free wi-fi, a good continental breakfast, and parking. The inn is in two buildings, and we stayed at the contemporary one, not the main Victorian building. Our room was surprisingly quiet, even though it was next to the parking lot. The TV is the size of a postage stamp, but we... More
