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.

Oasis in CambridgePosted Sep 3, 2013
The first thing you see after checking in is the beautifully maintained flowering courtyard, that is if you make it past the free afternoon tea with fresh baked goods. Everything else is of equal standard as you continue your visit..large comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast and helpful staff. One note: they say they have free parking. If you don't drive a sub-compact good luck.

CozyPosted Aug 29, 2013
Pros: I felt welcomed the moment I walked in the front door.
Cons: Some furniture
Location: The hotel is 10-15 minutes walk from Harvard University.
Very easy to reach the hotel from the airport. Take Silver Line to South Station and Red Line towards Alewife. The hotel is situated between the Red Line stations: Harvard Square and Porter Square (half distance), 10-15 minutes walk from the subway station. If you have big luggage it maybe better to take the bus 77 or 96. The hotel is cozy. Wonderful interior garden. The lady in charge of breakfast is very nice and she bakes very good cookies for the afternoon tea time.

Superb inn for a getaway weekend near BostonPosted Aug 25, 2013
We had a very nice stay at Mary Prentiss Inn. The staff is very kind, the hotel well decorated and the terrace a real haven. It's near great restaurants in Cambridge and a ten minute walk to Harvard Square (and a few Hubway bike stations) - so you can leave your car parked and get easy access to Boston or Cambridge.

Near Harvard UniversityPosted Aug 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
Our room was on the first floor and was very quiet. Afternoon tea/snack was lovely; cookies, iced tea. Perfect refreshment before our night out in Cambridge. We brought a bottle of wine to enjoy with our son before heading out to dinner and they happily supplied glass, ice, corkscrew. Breakfast was pleasant and fresh, we sat outside in the patio. Overall, just a very enjoyable weekend. Next time we visit our son, we are definitely staying at the Mary Prentiss Inn. Make sure you reserve early, they book up quickly and have a loyal following.

Perfect for anyone who wants to be near HarvardPosted Aug 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
We loved the Inn. The staff were beyond helpful and always smiling. The location was perfect for us: near Harvard and there are wonderful bistros and lovely shops nearby. The Inn itself is beautifully maintained and the garden area adds a relaxing, peaceful touch. We plan on staying there again.
