Ease and grace. The hosts were absolutely wonderful: friendly, thoughtful, and helpful. There was also privacy. Very quiet neighborhood. The house itself was artful and aesthetically very pleasing, including the details of subtle lighting. The bed was fabulous. A -Plus!

After insisting on 5 stars for quite sometime, I'm ruined and will never be able to stay anywhere else in Boston! What a place - like a hostel, but for higher end adventurers. Robert and David are meticulous hosts - offering rides, directions and alot of laughs to guests. After remodeling their beautiful Cambridge home, they opened it as a Bed & Breakfast. The rooms are modern, bright and very well appointed - flat screen TV's and a movie collection to rival all. The common kitchen allows for nice interaction between the hosts and the few other guests (there are only 3 rooms here) and if you're up early enough, a friendly spread of fruits, yogurt, pastries, etc. await you. I stocked the fridge with Champagne and had a lovely morning with fellow guests - one of whom cooked breakfast for us all. Centrally located in Central Square, Cambridge, but off the main roads in a residential neighborhood, if you want to feel like a local who is living well, then this is your spot.

For the Price, Fine, but I won't be backPosted May 28, 2009 on Hotels.com
This house was apparently also serving as the HQ for a non-profit aids advocate organization. I basically NEVER spoke to anyone associated with the B&B. Very weird. I obtained my key from one of the advocacy group members who was working out of the office in the basement. The B&B in general and the room was an older updated/new colonial, clean and priced right. I didn't want to spend $400+ a night for BU graduation weekend. However, other then that it was a bust. There was no place to put your luggage or sit other then on the bed. So I had to work with my laptop on my lap, literally. If there was food associated with this B&B you didn't know it. There was absolutely no communication between me and the B&B owners/managers. To me this was just a sideline of this advocacy group to make a few extra bucks. The neighborhood was a little sketchy.

We greatly enjoyed our 3-night stay at the Whitman House. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming, and the facilities very comfortable.

A pleasant little B&B in a beautifully restored home near Cambridge's Central Square. Off street parking is a blessing in most of Cambridge and this quiet, well kept neighborhood is no exception. The host, while both gracious and non-intruding, is an good source for local info.
