Great historical house with lots of charm

3.6 on April 15, 2014

Enjoyed our stay here for one night on our way East. Hosts were great as was Max their dog. Great weather so we enjoyed our wine on the huge front porch and the friendly folks waving as they walked by. Beautiful old home with a lot of projects to keep up with for an older house this size but very clean and charming. Room was large with a great bathroom and very comfortable. Breakfast was very good and again the house was very interesting and beautiful. Easy walk to several restaurants and the water. Would likely go back again....

Nice weekend in Cambridge

We had a delightful 2 night stay at Cambridge House. The facility is charming, and Jim & Marianne are interesting, gracious hosts. Breakfast was imaginative and delicious.

Beautiful stay in every way!
