Reviewed 30 April 2013

Overpriced for simple bed & Breakfast w/ shared bathroom.
Had trouble getting past old carpet on bathroom floor;
mold on shower curtain and bath mat.
Was a very quiet and pretty area, surrounding homes and yards
that were beautiful. Guest were very friendly.

Thanks for your comments. The bathroom rug and bathmat were promptly replaced. There's now a new thermostat-controlled separate heating system in the big Studio room, as well, so that room can be as cozy as the guest wishes. Hope you'll try us another visit. Blue

Great host! Comfortable room. Well located to explore Cambridge. Walking distance to Porter Square. 10-15 minutes from Harvard Square.

We were in Boston on our honeymoon and found Blue's B&B looking for something close in to the university as we had a meeting to arrange. Blue was very accommodating around our meeting. The breakfast was very good, every day something new and tasty. The room (and the whole house) was clean and neat with an intriguing collection of furnishings and art.
A very nice base from which to explore the Cambridge area.

This lovely home is very convenient for visiting Boston generally and Cambridge in particular. My room was spacious and attractively decorated and Blue cooked a delicious breakfast in the morning for the guests. It is very good value for money as this is usually an expensive town to visit

My husband and 10 yr old daughter stayed here for one night and will definitely return. Blue and her husband are warm, conscientious hosts, and their B&B reflects a love for art and travel. Blue works at Harvard's Museum of Natural History and her excitement about it is contagious. We enjoyed it immensely. If you want a quiet place to sleep and enjoy walking, this is a wonderful B&B. Although a long walk (about 20 mins.) from Harvard Square and shops, there was a great cafe, Simon's, that was fairly close. Cambridge, of course, has wonderful restaurants and a great health food market with a huge selection of hot prepared food - very reasonable. Blue was helpful with maps and dining suggestions. Border's Restaurant - Mexican and/or Vegetarian was excellent and reasonably priced. B&B Breakfast was fresh fruit and delicious blueberry pancakes (I think with some whole grain flour added). We were offered coffee & hot chocolate when we arrived and felt right at home. The room was sunny and large. If you go in the winter, turn on the extra heater when you arrive. Parking in Cambridge is non-existent, even on Sunday when we visited a Cambridge church, unless you want to pay a lot (or get lucky). There is parking at B&B. Harvard Bookstore is AMAZING!
