House Party

A well-situated B&B that's also cheap



bout eight blocks from Harvard University and 12 from MIT, and in easy walking distance of both Inman and Central squares, Harding House is miles from the high prices you’ll pay in most hotels on this side of the river. There’s even free off-street parking, first-come, first-served. The 19th-century two-family Victorian is meticulously renovated, plus there’s a free full breakfast and a weekly wine-and-cheese reception. It’s near several stops on the Red Line and also offers museum passes, snacks, teacakes, fresh fruit, biscotti, and beverages all day, and cheap daily guest passes to a nearby gym that has a pool and spa.
