The space

You Made It!!!

The Whitman House is an modern style bed and breakfast in Central Square just between Harvard and MIT in Cambridge and about a 15 minute walk to either. We are 3 minute walk to the Red Line T stop and three stops from downtown Boston.

There are three of us that run the bed and breakfast and there are three private rooms in the house for rent, plus a large common kitchen, living room, dining room, and back and front porch.

During the day we operate a public health nonprofit called Search For A Cure in the downstairs office but are around to help you find your way and enjoy Boston/Cambridge.

We have three private rooms available with a range of prices depending on the season but in general falling between $99 in the winter for a queen sized bed with shared bathroom and $195 in the spring/summer for a king sized memory foam bed with ensuited bathroom beyond the walkthrough closet. It is possible to add an air mattress to the floor for a third person for a small additional fee.

Since we actually have 3 rooms message us to find out what rooms might be available and what the price is for the date you are interested in. If we can accommodate you and the price is OK we will make an offer through Airnbnb and book it for you.

Unlike most places in Cambridge, we have no taxes, and no extra fees for our free off street parking, wireless internet, coupons for breakfast at the local cafe, cable TV/DVD in each room, washer/dryer/iron etc... All complimentary.

We are looking forward to meeting you and helping you enjoy Boston and Cambridge!

What a wonderful place to stay! Located close to the subway (red line) and in a great neighborhood, this bed and breakfast is an amazing calm, peaceful and perfect place to crash! David and Robert are great hosts and enjoy opening their home and sharing their lives with guests. …

Response from Robert:
We suggested that Andjela stay at another bed and breakfast and that the best we could do if she did not have any other option was to use the space we have for family and friends which was not a separate room but space in our library. We of course did not charge her for that. We are sorry she was not happy with the arrangement but it seemed the right thing to do since she had no other space to stay.
