This place is a very cozy Bed and Breakfast. Its rooms are decently sized but very cozy and looks like your grandmother's room with all the fluffy pillows and colorful wallpaper. The lighting is decent but since it is only 3 stories high so the view isn't amazing but it is decent. It's found in between Porter and Harvard Square so you're surrounded by old-fashioned houses and can be close to both areas and the places they offer.

What a gorgeous bed and breakfast! This inn is located in a historic building built in 1843 and they've kept the charming look from the furniture to the bedding, which are updated but still kept the vintage look. On top of breakfast they provide afternoon tea from 4-6pm! There's also a lovely outdoor patio where you can enjoy breakfast among flowers. If you pay a bit more for the deluxe or suite, the room will come with a fridge and wet bar. The location is close to Porter Square station and just around the corner from The Abbey, so you can just step out if you want to enjoy the nightlife

First to Review

The Mary Prentiss is a historical location, having even been recognized by the Historic Preservation Award ten years ago. The building is more than 100 years old and retains and old time character and charm. Rooms are eclectically furnished, characterized by dark wood and floral patterns. If you're looking for a quaint B&B in a quiet location, this inn is perfect. All the rooms vary in decoration but seemed to be priced fairly similarly in respect to room size and bed type.
