"The Irving House is lovely - the type of accommodation that is all-too-rare in the United States. I found the House spotlessly clean - the cleaners do a great job - and a comfortable, and relaxing place to spend time. The continental breakfasts are great, and complimentary hot drinks and cookies and cakes are available all day."

"I love this B&B. It is on a great, tree lined street that is a short walk (5-10 minutes) from the heart of Harvard Square ... the employees are friendly, the house is beautiful and breakfast, though not fancy, is wonderful and complete with several different newspapers to read. In the summer, there is a large porch for sitting, sipping coffee and reading the Globe. It is my home away from home."

"Thanks for your kindness."

"Outstanding service, location & staff! This was special for us - our wedding!"

"Every expectation from services advertised on the internet was met and more. Thank you very much for maintaining such a nice house and for your kind attention."
