We are conveniently located just outside of Davis and Porter Squares, within walking distance to the subway (REDLINE) allowing easy access to Harvard Square, Tufts University, MIT, and Lesley University. The inn has two buildings; one offering Victorian rooms and the other offering contemporary decor. All are equipped with private baths, cable TV and Wi-Fi. We serve a hearty continental breakfast in our lounge in the Victorian building and where our guests can relax and enjoy tea, coffee, during the day or evening. Parking is included in rate but it is limited; (first come basis). There is also a common computer in the lounge for guests to use.

Our friends from Switzerland wanted a place to stay in Cambridge overnight, and we suggested The Cambridge House Inn. They received great service from a friendly staff. The bed was comfortable, and the room quiet. The breakfast had many options to choose from. The interior is Victorian style and full of personality. This was the second couple we recommended to go there, and both really enjoyed their stay. I'd recommend it again!

The room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was very good. The service excellent. The parking was very good with a spot available at all times. Second floor rooms are problematic since there is no elevator and the stairs are quite steep.

This was a perfect place. Very close to both Davis and Porter squares, so plenty to do all around. Maybe a five minute walk to the Davis square t stop. The room was very nice, bed was comfortable and the service was outstanding. I will definitely be staying here again.

The price is very reasonable. A short walk (several blocks) brings you to the Davis Square T-station. We took public transportation everywhere. The rooms and premises are comfortable and clean. Service gets a lower mark, because there was no Interenet connectiom (and staff could offer no assistance, repeatedly offering the same non-working password), maps of the city were inadequate and maps of the trains were unavailable, no assistance given when asked about local restaurants (a binder with menus is available). These problems were probably exacerbated by language limitations of the foreign-born staff (polite, but not very verbal). Breakfast was just ok (cold selections only)--some cheeses and cold cuts would have helped the mini-bagels feel more substantial. BUT overall, the stay was nice--I would come again.

The room was nice enough, but the non-English host who checked us in and was there the first night was less than communicative and not very helpful in answering questions of where to go out for dinner, or even pointing the way to where the room was etc. It seemed that English verbalization was difficult. The following day a local (English speaking) woman was in charge of the desk and was very friendly and helpful--a total 180 from the day before. The next day the non-Englisah speaker again, and again a very non-communicative day. The breakfast was adequate, but not memorable. The croissants and pastries did not seem to be that day fresh, but I guess as much as can be expected. The price was right and the location very convenient to the Davis station T (about 4 blocks away), so in summary, if you need a reasonably priced place to stay in Boston, close to public transportation, it's a good place. You just have to be prepared to figure things out on your own.

We booked at Victorian room at the Cambridge house, the room was clean and a showed a little wear. The Bed was quite high off of the ground but steps were provided if needed. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was similar to what I would expect from a chain hotel and not a Bed and Breakfast. Which made the experience feel a little over priced. Overall it was a pleasant place to stay in a nice area.

Ironically, we were in exactly the same room during both stays. It would have been nice to see more rooms, but the familiarity had its advantages. The inn is certainly convenient and the innkeepers are friendly. There are many nice touches such as chocolates and coffee/tea available in the breakfast room round the clock. I will stay there again!

Everything about this place was perfect, except for the wireless connection. It was so slow I couldn't work in my room, but there was a computer available in the living room downstairs that was fine. Also, not in good walking distance to Harvard, but the 77 bus runs frequently and it was easy for me to get back and forth

This was the first time my husband and I stayed in a bed and breakfast, and after this experience it will definitely not be our last. It was a beautiful room we stayed in with our own gas fireplace that we could control, and the bed was very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and were around 24 hours a day, which I understand not all B&B's provide. The breakfast was simple but sufficient providing hot and cold cereal, pastries and fruits.
