The house is lovely and nicely maintained and works as a functioning household not just a guest house as other b & bs we have stayed at. Eric was very accommodating letting us check in and leave our bags early; letting us leave our...

This was our first stay at this place though not our first visit to Boston. The location is central and a short walk to the t station. We stayed in the basement suite. It is a bit dark as there is only One skylight type window. We were given the option of moving to one of the upstairs bedrooms but...

Conveniently located on the red line, the Central Square subway was only a quick five minute walk away. We stayed in the Charles room which is quite spacious and included a reading/TV room next to it. The breakfast was very satisfying, fresh fruit, bread (the chocolate croissant was a stand out!), yogurt, eggs, and cereal was available. Diane and Judy...

Prospect House is an easy walk to Harvard University (I was there with my wife for a conference) and the Red line to anywhere in Boston. The house is charming and the breakfast was delicious. I would definitely recommend this B and B. Great place!

We stay at B&Bs whenever we can and always at the top of the list in comfort and hospitality is Prospect Place. The place is stunning and the location is so convenient for visiting any corner of the Boston metro area.

Wonderful owners and hosts! Atmosphere one of peacefulness and intellectual stimulation-surrounded by lots of books, interesting and helpful magazines,and a piano! The breakfasts are delicious and the coffee non- stop! Close to MIT & Harvard-walking distance-and good restaurants, too. Looking forward to going back soon.

We stayed 3 nights at Prospect Place in May and had a wonderful experience. The host was exceptionally nice and a pleasure to talk with. The breakfasts varied each day and all were outstanding -- a definite highlight of the day. The house is lovely and tastefully decorated. We stayed in the Madeline room which was a bit tight, but...

We had such an amazing visit. The owner was super nice, the rooms are gorgeous and the breakfast was super fresh and home-made delicious goodies, we loved the granola!!! Location was ideal, a 10 minutes stroll to Harvard square. Great restaurants nearby. Would come and stay here again each time we visit Cambridge.
