This is a truly charming inn in a terrific location, close to a T stop, shops, and restaurants. Not only was the staff terrific, but my room was much larger than anticipated with nice features, including a lovely sitting room.

We have stayed at the Mary Prentiss Inn before and have loved it. It’s very homey and cozy and clean and everyone is friendly. Covid has made things a little different but the staff is still very nice and accommodating and they are taking every precaution to make sure everyone stays safe.

I loved the location of this property. The neighborhood was clean and quiet and just a 20 minute walk to Harvard Square. The underground parking was also great! The house was so charming with a beautiful outdoor area and lovely indoor breakfast nook. We will definitely return.
