Though our Bed and Breakfast has been newly renovated, we think of the Whitman House as an established Cambridge residence, inn, and guesthouse. We are a 15 minute walk from both Harvard and MIT, or a 3 minute More walk to the Central Square Red Line subway which gets you to the heart of either in one stop and the Heart of Boston in three. We have been personally involved in community affairs for over 26 years and glad to be your conduit to the cities of Boston and Cambridge. Beginning with no taxes, free off street parking on site, wireless internet, private bathrooms, and a flexible breakfast schedule; there is nothing you could need that isn't approachable in one way or another. This is a beautiful place that we wish you to enjoy, share and experience to its fullest as you conduct your stay. Please see the rest of our site for the full picture. Then be sure to Call Us Directly or email for any questions, comments, requests and bookings. Thank you and Enjoy! Less

This was our first B&B in a city instead of a rural B&B. It was wonderful. I was travelling with just my son so we could tour Harvard and MIT. This place is perfectly located within walking distance of both. It is a short drive to explore the Boston Harbor. They had no probl

We stayed here for 3 nights. Room very clean and modern.
Bed very comfortable. Access to coffee machine 24/7. Breakfast very limited help yourself. But awkward as you are not sure what you have access to in the fridge.
Not far from restaurants.
David very friendly host.

Do you have a room with twin beds, two doubles or two queens? Do you have a room like this on the first floor?
We stayed on the ground floor in The Blue Room which had a large bed although I don't know what size it was. Your best bet is to contact the owner directly.

does the gold room have a TV? how big is it?
Yes, it does. About a 32 inch flat screen. But you're in Cambridge! you want to be out there...
