Prospect Place
Bed and Breakfast

Cambridge, Massachusetts


Welcome to Prospect Place...
an Italianate residence built in 1866!

Conveniently located in the center of Cambridge, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University are only a short walk away, and metropolitan Boston just across the river.

The subway and bus lines are just a few minutes from our front door.


An Elegant Victorian Bed & Breakfast in the Heart of Cambridge!

Prospect Place was owned by the same family for over one-hundred years until 1994, when we purchased the home and began a period restoration...

  • Bathrooms have been tastefully integrated to accommodate the needs of the guest rooms yet great care has been taken to maintain the original spaces in the house.
  • Period details abound, from classic archways and marble fireplaces to the graceful winding staircase and cut-glass windows.

The house is eclectically furnished in wonderful antiques and oriental rugs on top of the original wood floors. Premium faux finishes of subtle multi-colored wall glazes add a unique flavor to the décor, while other rooms have authentic reproductions of period wallpapers. Two grand pianos, sculptures and paintings grace the spacious Victorian parlor room. The atmosphere is refined and elegant without being pretentious.

The Inn's accommodations include two rooms that share a bathroom, as well as rooms with private baths en suite, two with double marble showers.


2 nights/ $340 - $680

Enjoy the lovely four-season scenic beauty …

... of Cambridge and Boston and all that lies around the ocean harbor with its islands and the great Charles River, which binds the two cities together. The Boston Marathon in April and the Head of the Charles Regatta in October are just two of the sporting events that draw competitors and spectators alike from the world over.

Cambridge and Boston are hosts to an array of unique art museums from our renowned Museum of Fine Arts and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum to the Harvard Museums and the MIT Museum, noted for its holograms.

Walk the famed Freedom Trail and trace the footsteps of American’s founding. And Boston is home to the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Pops.

The city never lacks for something to see or do!
