Attractive Old B&B in great location for HarvardPosted Jun 17, 2015
Pros: Location, ambience
Cons: Some aspects of breakfast
Location: Mass ave, 10 minutes walk from Harvard Square.
This was my third stay at the Mary Prentiss Inn. The location is very convenient for Harvard but also for more practical things nearby on Mass Ave. The rooms are comfortable, with creative quirky features and lived in furniture, which appeals to this Brit. The cooked breakfasts are very good, but some of the other elements to go with (oversweet gloopy yoghurt; pappy bread; packets of tasteless butter and jelly) have no place in this kind of establishment. Afternoon tea snacks are good.

Nice and cozyPosted Apr 29, 2015
Pros: Character and personality
Location: Not much other than Harvard University
This is a picturesque and cozy establishment, it is nice. Perhaps unusual for a b&b to be in such an urban setting. It is well kept and maintained. The breakfast was ok, but nothing to write home about.

A gem in CambridgePosted Feb 13, 2015 on Hotels
A great bed and breakfast. The availability of onsite parking was a great plus. Our room was pristine, and the house is beautiful. It was also a convenient walking distance to good restaurants. We truly enjoyed our stay!

Wonderful place to stay in Cambridge or for that matter, Boston. Clean rooms, excellent staff and various selections of cookies and deserts to eat throughout the day, coffee and a full amazing breakfast. I went on business, but would have loved to have taken my wife with me, as it was a quaint place and fairly romantic.

Cozy Christmas spotPosted Dec 31, 2014 on Hotels
Friendly service, nice coffee, tea, cookies, and breakfast. One point off for room comfort only because the old bed was a little squeaky. The mattress was comfortable though.
