I been staying here for the past 6 or so years, when I am in town for conferences. Sarah, the owner, lends me her bicycle to get around! I am staying here right now, and had to write this to say how very lovely this is. The location is ideal for Harvard, MIT, and all of the Cambridge/Boston area. I'm...

Kitty themed bed and breakfast. There are allegedly real cats there too, although we didn't see any. Every amenity is provided served up with a warm welcome. No en suites though. Excellent self serve breakfast. Perfect for women, couples and lone travellers.

I stayed here last year, while visiting Boston with my mom (we were there for a research trip to one of Harvard's archives). We loved Bed and Muffin; it was comfortable and the owner was very nice. The owner, Sarah, has gone out her way to include thoughtful touches (like a stand full of umbrellas, a shelf of reading glasses...

I have a wonderful time, everytime I stay at the Bed and Muffin. Sarah is a wonderful proprietress, as skilled an executive manager as she is caring and thoughtful. Every potential need of her guests seems to have been considered and you will find laid out, organized and at your finger tips, essential as well as whimsical (but useful!) items...

Because of the great reviews on Tripadvisor we had booked the three rooms in the B&B for two nights for a family reunion in Boston. Unfortunately we had to change our plans and cancel two out of three rooms for the last night and while doing so the owner mentioned that we could only be two in each room even...

Just got home from Boston, and had to write about the Bed and Muffin B&B. Great location for Cambridge (a walk away from Central Square) and just a few minutes drive to get to the heart of Boston. The entranceway is enchanting, with plantings on both sides of a secluded walkway. Our room was spotless, well furnished, comfortable beds/pillows, and...

My husband and I wanted a place close to our daughter's apartment in Boston. The Cambridge Bed and Muffin was just right for us. It is an easy walking distance to public transportation, so we didn't need a car. The room was really big, and the bed outstandingly comfortable. There is a shared bath, but we never met anyone else...

We have stayed at this delightful B&B a couple of times a year for the last couple of years whenever we come to visit family who live nearby. It is such a lovely place to stay! The host has thought of every detail. Very comfortable beds and quiet rooms. Sharing a bathroom has never been an issue. The breakfast is...

This place was so great it finally got me to sign up for TripAdvisor. I stayed here one night because my inlaws were coming to town and I live in a very small apartment nearby. So basically I just needed a bed. It was perfect for that, but would be great for so much more. The attention to detail for...

“First floor room is off of the kitchen, there are 2 rooms on the 2nd floor, both lovely, and no clue about the 3rd floor! Ask for the first floor if you can't manage stairs. All the rooms we saw had a full/queen bed and a twin in them.”

“There are two rooms on the third floor, two on the second floor, and one on the first floor.”

“All the rooms look good, but the one on the first floor is right next to the kitchen and entry, so if you're looking for a lot of privacy, ask for an upstairs one.”
