My husband and I went to Cambrige for a weekend event and stayed at Blue's. We were delighted by the comfort level of large rooms with sitting areas. The breakfasts are really wonderful and you can choose your time to eat. Blue is an outgoing, warm and welcoming individual who genuinely likes meeting new people and hosting them. A good... More

You can't find better care and attention than you get here. Conveniently located near Harvard Square in a picturesque neighborhood, Blue's Bed and Breakfast is comfortable and pleasant, and the fellow guests are always interesting. The rooms are nice, breakfast delicious. What's not to love?

stayed there 5 nights. chose it because I wanted to optimize my American experience and also because one review said that Blue works at the Harvard Museum of Natural History(how interesting!).

If you're visiting Cambridge for any reason, I would recommend Blue's for its location - it's an easy walk to Harvard, Radcliffe, and many other Colleges/Universities. We also enjoyed the diversity of people we met there - from the Netherlands, Germany, and Italy - all staying with Blue and doing business with one college or another. I would describe our... More

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 More

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... More

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
