At the end of a fairly long and exhausting business trip I decided to visit Cambridge for a few days. I wanted to stay close to the city, but far enough not to get caught up in the city traffic. White Cottages B&B proved the perfect place! I can’t say enough about the hostess, Janet Parr. She made me feel at home and was extremely knowledgeable of the city’s colorful history. Her fine English breakfast was just what I needed to jump start my day. When it was time to head home I was more relaxed than I’ve been in years. Future trips to Cambridge will include White Cottages as part of the journey.
