We really enjoyed our stay in Room 2 at the Cambridge Vacation Rental Rooms. The house is gorgeous and nicely decorated, with a comfy bed and beautiful marble bathroom (with a jacuzzi!). The neighbourhood was great: close to the T at Central Square, and a twenty four hour convenience store just round the corner. The house also has free wifi.
Two points to note: unlike some B&Bs, you are very much staying in someone's spare room. This was great in that we got to use the kitchen and make our own breakfasts, but also means that you don't get some of the things you may be used to in other B&Bs: we had a small number of very basic channels on the TV (no news/sport) and several of those were unwatchable due to the poor signal (we were also in the only room without a DVD player). The B&B is unhosted and we didn't see the owner at all, which meant that dealing with a couple of maintenance issues that came up during our stay wasn't easy (although the service was very good from the Agency when we got through to them).
Despite these minor points, we would certainly stay again and recommend this beautiful house to others.
