Quaint Inn Close to Harvard SquarePosted Jan 28, 2014
Pros: Very cozy. Loved the antique furnishings and wall hangings. Bed was comfortable.
Cons: The "full" breakfast could have been more substantial.
Location: In the heart of Cambridge--walking distance of Harvard Square and the Porter stop on the Redline. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking dist.
We had a wonderful weekend in the city, made better by the ability to walk from our Inn to nearby Harvard Square or Porter on the Red Line. We visited the MFA and had wonderful dinners at an Ethiopian restaurant in Cambridge and in Chinatown.

My ReturnPosted Dec 29, 2013
Pros: The fireplace, comfortable bed, and especially the bathtub!!
I came home after 4 months of being away from the start of a 2 year teaching contract in the United Arab Emirates. My husband picked me up at the airport and we drove straight to the Mary Prentiss Inn. Following a 15 hour flight I was delighted beyond belief to see the room, and especially the big whirlpool tub. It was the most relaxing romantic enjoyable experience! Thank you for giving me and my husband a wonderful homecoming night!

Cambridge stayPosted Nov 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
We enjoyed the inn very much. I think the bed quilts need to be cleaner but overall a wonderful place to stay

We'll be backPosted Nov 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
There are, really, no reasonably priced hotels near Harvard Sq. So, if you're going to be paying the going rate, you might as well stay in a comfortable, atmospheric room in a lovely old house. Our room felt like a bedroom, well appointed with comfortable furnishings and a small kitchen area. Breakfast was more interesting than expected. I'll definitely consider the Inn next time I'm in the area.

This was my first experience in a B&B.Posted Nov 5, 2013
Pros: Dining area was beautiful. I enjoyed eating breakfast in the sunroom.
Location: Walking distance to Harvard.
This B&B is a great alternative to a traditional hotel. The food was excellent. I didn't get a chance to enjoy the Afternoon Tea, but when I returned to the B&B, they always had fresh cookies and sweets in the foyer waiting for guests. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

Quaint B&BPosted Oct 10, 2013
I online booked this B&B because it was away from downtown Boston. It was quaint and clean. Our room was on first floor which I was happy about. It was comfortable but perhaps not as pretty as some of the other rooms but we spent little time in room. Decor was pretty and homey. Staff was great and very helpful, especially Lans. Breakfasts were good and we enjoyed afternoon tea. It was close to subway so we could go shopping and to restaurants. We would stay here again.

Great one night stay for usPosted Sep 25, 2013
Pros: The staffs are very friendly and courteous. The full breakfast was very nice. Love the small and warm feeling. Everything seems very well thought out.
Cons: some minor repairs (wall paper peels off slightly). Sound barriers weren't quite as good.
Location: Close to quite a few very nice restaurants. We enjoyed Temple Lounge.
It was our first bed and breakfast inn stay and it was a very pleasant one. I would say I prefer this type of living space over a regular hotel. My wife loved the room decos and took lots of pictures of them.
