We stayed here for a long weekend. It was a short walk to the subway. The owners were helpful in providing information. The property is super cute and a comfortable stay. Somerville is nice area with plenty of food options and obviously quick subway/train stops away from tons of places. I would absolutely choose to stay here again over other options.

Easy to get to city centre and delicious breskfast
It was a great place to stay but disappointed with the welcome and the “housekeeping” which only entailed emptying the bins.

Feel like a home and not a hotel
We stayed in Davis room for two nights when we sent my son back to college. Feel like a home and not a hotel!! Nice and clean. Lovely food and fresh fruits for breakfast. Excellent service! Best location, near the Red Line Davis Square subway stop which is only two stops away from Harvard University. Will definitely come back when we are in Boston area. Highly recommended!

A great area in quaint Somerville. Clean, safe and lots of restaurants/coffee shops along with a famous cinema in the neighborhood. Near the Red Line Davis Square subway stop which is only three stops away from Harvard University and MIT.
