We just returned after a 10 day stay at the Prospect Place B&B and it was wonderful. Only 2 blocks from the subway and buses. Eric was so helpful to my wife and I with everything. We will be back in the future. Ken O

Location is fantastic. Eric the innkeeper was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. If/when we return to Boston, we will absolutely stay at Prospect Place.
We do hear comments almost every week about how convenient our location is to getting around Cambridge and Boston with the subway and bus just a 5 minute walk down the street. We also have a lot of loyal returning guests year-after-year. We sometimes wish we had more rooms to accept all the requests for rooms that we get, but can't possibly accommodate. It's always great to see familiar faces returning.

Charming old home that is very well located in Cambridge. Good service and lovely breakfast. The furnishings are getting a little tired. No sitting area outside (no porch or patio; backyard inaccessible). Would return for this value.
Glad this guest enjoyed our period bed and breakfast. Being furnished in antiques, things will not look like a modern hotel. For instance, some semi-antique orientals may actually show some wear and patina here and there, but they are the real thing. Also, it should be noted that we, in fact, do have a back porch with table and chairs off the kitchen, which guests are welcome to use for relaxing or eating. Just ask us and we'll be happy to show you.

This is a place that shows you the heart of the owners. You feel imediately wellcomed, they are very wellcoming you. The room is very clean, an old english style as you can find in Great Britain. rooms are reasonable big, in spite of not huge. The facilities work well. The best is the mavolous breakfast, with all what you want including freshly baked cake from the owner. Greatl
