  • Very worthwhile attraction... Geo Washington early campaign HQ also Longfellow's house. Tour heavy on the history... skimmed the important artwork on the walls.
  • Good place. Normally people overlook it. It has rich history. The lawn is well maintained. Looks like any other home in the area. History sets it apart.
  • Awesome piece of American literary History. Easy to find and visit anytime. Great preservation of an early American Georgian mansion.
  • Beautiful historic landmark in the heart of Cambridge. The garden in the back is spectacular, especially in the spring and summer. Worth a visit if in Harvard Square.
  • Finally got here to visit. Exceeded my expectations. Excellent tour - highly recommended.

Where to stay in Cambridge

As the home of two renowned universities, Cambridge caters mainly to the families of current or prospective students. You can stay near the university campuses by booking your room at a student-oriented bed and breakfast or guesthouse, which offer simple, comfortable lodging for a fraction of the price charged by the big chains. If you don't mind paying more and wish to stay near the city's major cultural attractions, consider a hotel just across the Charles River from downtown Boston.
