Tony and Keith were wonderful hosts; I felt welcome and at home in their lovely B&B. They were well prepared to host and I even had a lovely dinner, prepared by "chef" Keith on the first night. I travel to Cambridge several times each year and I plan to return to their extremely beautiful B&B on my future visits. Thank you Keith and Troy - I can't tell you how much your hospitality meant to me.

Troy and Keith provided an amazing experience! It was my first time visiting Boston and knew nothing about the area. The room was extremely comfortable and the entire unit impeccable. Trust that the pictures do the place justice. Keith and Troy both were very personable and gave me and my companion the local insight regarding the culture and places of interests. Hands down I highly recommend their place to anyone seeking a comfortable, hospitable and welcoming environment.

This was our first AirBNB stay and I have to save I was a bit nervous to stay at a stranger's home. But the minute I reached out to Troy about the listing I could tell by the warmth of his response what a great trip it would be. Staying at Troy and Keith’s place was like staying with friends. Friends with impeccable taste who can cook (seriously Keith is an amazing cook). The place is exactly as it looks in photos. They really have amazing taste. Our room was clean, and cozy, and had all we could want. The bed was very comfortable, the blanket was cozy and they even supplied us with bottled waters in the mini-fridge (regular and sparking). We had our own bathroom which was also so clean and elegant. The tub was very deep and nice to relax in as well. We were supplied with spa360 bath products to use and big fluffy towels. The whole house is so nice. It is elegant and well decorated but feels very warm and comfortable. It is also pretty high tech. Troy showed me the app to use for the lock, the Nest heat/AC, and the amazon thing which you can talk to and it turns on lamps and even tells jokes. Very cool. We sat on the enclosed porch with Troy and Keith chatting and were served coffee, tea and such a good breakfast Keith made us of Potato pancakes with lox and scrambled eggs. It was so nice. Despite the lovely home, cozy lovely room, all the wonderful decorating, great food, and extra hospitality the thing I liked most was getting to know Troy and Keith. They were so funny and smart and easy going. It was a pleasure to have some time to chat with them. I had laryngitis from giving work training classes but that still didn't stop me from getting to know them. I think this first AirBNB experience has definitely spoiled us!

Troy and Keith are so welcoming! Brunch with their warm and engaging conversation and Keith's professional cooking was a delight and a highlight of our trip. They were incredibly hospitable in picking us up and dropping us off for our travel onward. Their home and neighborhood are beautiful. We couldn't ask for more.
