A gem in downtown Cambridge

5 on January 02, 2017

It was really great to be staying right in the heart of historic downtown Cambridge. The house is a gorgeously renovated home with just the right level of decoration. The hosts were very welcoming and had a lot of information about things that were happening and where to eat. The two breakfasts we had were excellent. The homemade cookies in the afternoon were also very good. We will definitely be going back.

We spent two evenings at the Cambridge House Bed & Breakfast. The owners were welcoming and helpful, providing several suggestions on restaurants and activities in the area. Breakfast was excellent, and we enjoyed spending an hour or so speaking with the owners about the historic property and surrounding town. I highly recommend the Cambridge House to individuals looking for a quiet, slightly off-the-beaten path getaway. While St Michaels and Easton are lovely, the peaceful evenings and warm hospitality offered at the Cambridge House were much appreciated.

We had a wonderful stay!

We booked Friday and Saturday nights. After looking at the rooms on line, we decided on the Hunt Room which was really quite a bit larger and prettier than in the pictures. It was early Sept. so we didn't try the gas fireplace. Many large windows - lots of light. There were period dressers and tables, two comfy wing chairs I think they are called by the fireplace, and decorative pieces around the room. The bed was very comfortable, and quite high in keeping with the times- I used the step stool :-) The bathroom was clean and fluffy white towels replaced daily. Breakfast was quite large with fruits, juices, never ending perked coffee, home made frittatas with sausage one morning, and blueberry stuffed pancakes with bacon the next, all served on lovely china with period design silverware. Dining was a treat. The house is really beautiful and the paintings and antique furniture was warm, friendly and charming. The last B&B we stayed at, a Victorian with antique furniture, smelled musty and dusty and we were served heated frozen breakfasts - but not the Cambridge House. It was fresh and charming. Best of all, the proprietors, Maryann and Jim were perfect hosts. We highly recommend.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cambridge House! Jim and Marianne were welcoming, our room was charming (with an awesome mattress!!), and breakfast was a gourmet treat! We especially loved sitting in their screened-in porch in the evening, reading and taking in the beauty of the night.
