    Home away from home!

    My daughter lives nearby so it’s an easy walk to her house. It is also conveniently located between 2 T stops (Harvard Sq and Porter) There are also plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, and grocery stores nearby, all walking distance. Until Covid they served a beautiful and delicious breakfast every morning (anxiously awaiting the return of that). The staff is very friendly and accommodating!

    Work/Staycation

    I stayed to have a change of scenery while I worked. They were kind enough to give me a room with a desk. The room was beautiful and the host Lisa was amazing. The inn itself is beautiful as well. They even have their own parking under the inn, but bring your smallest vehicle, as there is not much room to maneuver. The inn is just off of Mass Ave and within walking distance to anything you may need. My one and only negative would be that the bed was extremely uncomfortable. Otherwise, you are bound to have a lovely stay at the Prentiss Inn.

    Great location. Easy to drive in and out of the area. We walk a lot, and it was a great place to walk and explore.

    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.

    Charming Inn, great location

    I stayed here for about a week and found it comfortable and hospitable. Loaded with charm and attention to detail. Onsite free parking is a huge plus in this area. Easy walk to Harvard Square or Porter Square. Restaurants and coffee shops within steps.

    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.

    Very nice Inn- Bed and Breakfast

    They Inn was as very nice. Our room was very clean. We were surprised / impressed with the little kitchenette. There were plenty of snacks waiting for us. There was free underground parking. It did require a lot of manuvering to get into the parking spaces due to space constraint but we managed. There was a free breakfast. We appreciated the help of the check-in person who carried our luggage up the stairs. There is no elevator. Overall the Inn is a good place to stay and the price was very reasonable. We would stay here again.
