Fabulous 8.8 From 32 reviews

Fair 4.0
I think I was scammed. I was told that I got the scholar room - but there was no air conditioner, no cable TV and very uncomfortable, poor quality bed. The room I got was nothing like the ones showed in the pictures and I had to climb poorly lit steep staircase to my room. There was no one to even help with luggage. A very poor experience overall!

Incredible B&B!
What a delightful weekend at the Parkside on Ellery! Many thanks to David for all the little touches in the house to make our stay perfect. Beautiful Victorian room. Lovely little garden outside for a drink before dinner. And breakfast delivered to our room each morning. Couldn't have asked for more. Thank you!

Fun weekend getaway
Beautiful house and warm host but room was a bit musty and needed to have the a/c going for the dampness.

This B and B owner couldn't have been more hospitable. He's done an excellent job at making guests feel right at home. Excellent location. And so quiet.

Great location! Very close to the Harvard Square. The house is beautiful. The host David was very nice and accommodating. Breakfast was prepared with love and presented beautifully. Great coffee! Will definitely come back if I visit Boston again.
