My daughter and I recently stayed here for two nights. The room was comfortable and clean, and the personal attention from Stephen really made our stay great. He was ready with restaurant recommendations, directions, and even a complimentary umbrella. We mentioned that we were planning on going to Legoland Discovery Center, so he took it upon himself to find out which was the best way to get there, even the specific bus we needed to take. The house is a short walk from the Davis Square T station, and there are many choices for restaurants (and lots of opportunity for people-watching!). The breakfast was more than a continental, and it included danish, muffins, fruit, oatmeal, bagels, and more. There were even cookies when we arrived. We would absolutely recommend staying here.
