My husband & I stayed at Bowers House B&B for a week, visiting family and seeing the sites of the Boston area. The house is immaculately clean & comfortable (I had difficulties at other B&B's because of allergies), & is on a quiet side street at Davis Square. Christina & Steven are the perfect hosts, providing us with suggestions of... More

This property is in a great location just steps from lively Davis Square. Easy access to the T as well. Congenial hosts and good room - could live without the highly scented liquid soap in the shower as the only soap option. As mentioned previously, very private and hassle-free, convenient parking. Somewhat lacking breakfast options (all carbs!) keeps me from... More

Wow! That's it! Wow! The perfect bread and breakfast. We couldn't ask for more. The room was comfortable and very clean. Christina and Steven were very personable and accommodating. With all rooms but the king room, the bathrooms are within the room. We had the king room and never thought twice about walking three steps across the hall. The place... More

I booked here because hotels are so expensive in Boston, and I knew if we were near the T with free parking we’d be able to get anywhere. I was not mistaken in my choice; the Davis Square area is bustling and full of restaurants and nightlife. The only thing it seems to lack is a supermarket though you can... More

A simple but clean B&B in a Somerville neighborhood. Accommodations are not fancy, but clean and comfortable. Breakfast consists of continental fare - yogurt, fruit, bagels, cereals, etc - and is offered in a casual kitchen area. The innkeepers accommodated our family and were courteous, helpful with restaurant recommendations and obviously take pride in their business. Recommend highly and would... More
