About this listing
A lovely room with a big view of the Charles River. An antique double bed and a private bath, wifi, tv, ac, coffee machine and hair dryer. Great location for jogging along the river and a short walk to Harvard Square. Perfect for a guest visiting Harvard University for a few days but also for those who want to take the "T" to Boston.
Polly was a very welcoming and caring host. Although she had broken her leg everything was well prepared when I arrived and breakfast was ready every morning.
The room and bathroom were clean and I had them all for myself.
The house is situated next to the river and Harvard square and the metro station are in good walking distance. If you are a light sleeper (which I am unfortunately) some earplugs for the night could be helpful since there is a street with lots of traffic in front of the house.
Whether you are there for business or pleasure I can only recommend this host.
Enjoy your stay!
Listing description totally accurate. There was great communication with the host. The neighborhood was quiet and close to everything.
The stay with Polly went well. Comfortable room and good location in Cambridge. We appreciated the breakfast that was provided. The wifi was spotty at times.
I could not have been made more welcome by Polly. She has been warm but not intrusive. I have felt totally at home. Her home is warm and welcoming, just as the photos show. I felt more like a family guest than a lodger. I enjoyed fresh fruit and yoghurt for breakfast, and scrambled eggs if desired. Wonderful! Most of all I have enjoyed conversations with Polly.
The proximity to Harvard University (just a 12 minute walk) has been a real bonus.
It has been a pleasure and a privilege to stay here. I could not recommend Riverbend B&B more highly.

I reserved this room with Polly for my parents over graduation weekend. The location was great! Right on the river, and just a 10 minute walk from Harvard Square. My parents enjoyed Polly's company and said the breakfast was lovely. Thank you Polly for making my parents' stay a memorable one!
A wonderful place with a view on Charles River.
Polly was a fantastic host! She was very helpful with suggestions of places to visit and really made me feel at home!
I could not have made a better choice for a stay in Boston.
