We experienced a warm and friendly atmosphere. Stating " met my expectations" may sound too "normal", but from the announcement, that is what I had expected, a friendly bedandbreakfast.I will recommend it to whomever is looking for a saty in Cambridge.

I have stayed at Carolyn's B&B twice while visiting my daughter and family in nearby Watertown. My sister joined me on both trips. Carolyn makes her own granola for our breakfasts, served with yogurt, fruit and toast. This healthy breakfast is perfect! Our bedroom has two comfortable twin beds. We have our own private bathroom just outside our bedroom door. Carolyn's B&B is located in a lovely, quiet neighborhood in Cambridge, with the bonus of a beautiful yard! Thank you, Carolyn, for making us feel welcome in your home.

We stayed at Carolyn's B&B in September, and chose it because it was close to public transportation and close to Harvard Square. Carolyn's home is lovely and beautifully decorated. Our room was very comfortable, and Carolyn accommodated all our breakfast preferences. We look forward to staying with Carolyn again!

Clean, comfortable and bright, Carolyn's Bed and Breakfast was a relaxing respite from Boston sight-seeing and college visits. Carolyn is delightful and has a beautiful original art collection throughout her home. The rooms are comfortable and quiet.

My company recommends that any employee visiting our Cambridge office stays at Carolyn's B&B. She is very friendly, the rooms are comfortable and clean, and the price is very reasonable for the Cambridge area.

We have stayed several times at Carolyn's B&B, and enjoyed it very much every time. The bedroom is comfortable and well furnished, the bathroom is large and luxurious, the breakfasts are delicious, and the location is perfect. The B&B is a calm safe haven in a small-town-like neighborhood, only a block from a major road and public transportation. We love the four-minute walk down the street, from Carolyn's delightful front garden past all the neighbors' beautiful and varied gardens to the main road and the bus. It's great to be able to leave our car parked at the B&B while we're enjoying the city--especially when we were there right after a major blizzard!

Carolyn's B&B is a wonderful place to stay when you are in the Boston/Cambridge area. She has a pair of nice second floor rooms that are tastefully decorated, as well as free off street parking. I have stayed at her B&B numerous times when I travel to Boston on business, and I have never been disappointed.
