Parkside on Ellery in Cambridge, Massachusetts has been described by a guest as having “…all the comforts of home and all the privacy of a hotel”. Built in 1865, this post Civil War Victorian has been renovated for modern comforts. While this B&B in a garden setting maintains a relaxed atmosphere, it is just a ten-minute walk to bustling Harvard Square. The Bed and Breakfast is also perfectly located for university visits, experiencing historic Boston or day trips to quaint Cape Cod. Three unique guestrooms featuring private entrances, private baths, complimentary local telephone service and internet access. The Victorian Room is decorated with American Renaissance period furniture of rosewood and walnut. American and Asian inspired simplicity invites guests to enjoy the treetops in the cheery Cambridge Room. Chinese lions welcome guests to the tranquil, study-like, Scholar Room. A continental breakfast menu offers choices of regular or decaffeinated coffee and tea, English muffins with assorted jams and muesli cereal. Breakfast is served in-room. Parking is on-street with a provided permit.

Located in Cambridge in the historical district, just two blocks from Harvard Yard, our 1897 colonial revival house, designed by architect George Fogerty, is noted for its "simplicity of design and crispness of detail." We have preserved many of its original details. We are just a short "T" ride across the river to Boston. Our rooms are for double or single occupancy with king, queen or twin beds. The tax-free price includes parking, breakfast, afternoon tea and sherry. We have antiques, lace curtains, down pillows, fresh flowers in the room. Breakfast includes homemade bread, homemade jams, and fresh fruit and we make crepes, Belgian waffles or blueberry pancakes for breakfast. The rooms are air-conditioned, have cable TV, voice mail, overstuffed chairs, and antique writing desks. They are shared bath with a dressing gown and a basket for your toiletries, with no smoking on the premises. The rooms are on the third floor and they are light and airy. There is a back porch surrounded with trees. The common room has a small library of history, poetry, and tourist literature, a book of menus, and my grandmother's rocking chairs. If you wish to swim or use the weight room across the street, remember to bring your suit. We donate 5% of our profits to the Cambridge Action Fund, a nonprofit that helps the Cambridge homeless.

The SpacePlease note, due to serious allergies this is a nut-free home. We get lots of requests for reservations and we feel more comfortable approving them if you tell us a little about yourself, thanks! This is a 720-square-foot condo, and all rooms are a comfortable size. You will have a private bedroom with a full-size bed and a locking door. An additional sleeping space is available at no extra charge if you and your travel partner would like two separate beds. This is a queen-size sofa bed with a new, memory foam mattress in the living room. If you use the living room for sleeping, you can close the door to the room overnight. During the day, we will need to walk through the living room to exit the condo. As a female host I prefer that at least one guest in your party be female, thanks!

Free on-street visitor parking for 3 nights plus Saturday night.
