Everything was pleasant enough. The place is a bit run down. You can hear other rooms around you. The paint is cracked and peeling in places. The bathroom ceiling has dark spots that might be rust or mold. But the location is convenient, most of the staff are friendly, the basement snack/breakfast area is cozy, their “green” efforts are admirable.

Great deal in Boston area, close to Harvard Square

Posted Jan 20, 2018
Nice basic comfortable room in Cambridge. Snacks and tea/coffee in basement. We would stay here again. Friendly staff. We were up for a wedding in HS so it was a perfect location for us.

Already one of our favorite places to stay.

Posted Jan 3, 2018
Pros: A 15-20 minute walk to most everything. Safe area. Free parking, although a bit tight.
Location: We visited five of Harvard University's excellent museums.
This affordable B&B looked good on-line and got even better when we stayed there. Located in an older neighborhood within walking distance of the restaurants and shops of Harvard Square, it had charm and comfort. Our room was large and had its own bath (some rooms share). The staff was friendly and offered dining suggestions that turned out to be just right for us. Excellent breakfast that suited both my gluten-free vegetarian wife and my own middle-of-the-road eating habits.

Friendly staff

Posted Dec 9, 2017
Pros: Its friendly service and clean facilities.
Cons: The room was a little drafty - a window had not been properly closed - although we don't mind a slightly cooler room to sleep in.
Location: We were here to visit our daughter who just gave birth and lived in the neighborhood. It was a perfect location to walk to.
From reception to breakfast to check out, everyone was cheerful, helpful and accommodating. We felt welcome throughout the stay. Breakfast provided a wide variety of choices and was excellently prepared.

Thank you for your kind and thoughtful review. I will remind my housekeeping staff to be sure windows are closed when they finish their work. Guests occasionally open windows for fresh air, as they prefer. We hope to see you again some time!

Perfect location next to Harvard.

This was a very cute place in a great location. My only fault with this place is the squeaky floors.

Ah, squeaky floors. As soon as we fix one squeaky area, another appears. But we keep working at it! We are pleased you enjoyed your stay, mostly!

Home Sweet Home at Harvard

Lovely stay. Charming ambiance in an excellently situated neighborhood. The benefit of this B&B is the kitchen, snacks, front porch, parlor, and overall homey atmosphere. The location couldn't be better with a five minute walk to Harvard Square.

Very basic B&B

Posted Oct 17, 2017
The B&B was ok. The hosemaids very nice. Other staff just do their job. Breakfast was very basic, nothing particularly good about it.

This was a great stay, looking forward to staying there again. If it's important to you make sure you ask for rooms with private bath. It was a little spartan, but we were expecting that. Can't beat the price, with parking!
