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!
Polly was a warm and welcoming host. Very flexible and a lovely breakfast.
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.
Polly's house was perfectly situated - in the morning through our bedroom window we could see the rowers on the Charles River and lots of people jogging along the Riverside walking/cycling path.
It was a 15 minute walk along the river to Harvard Square, 20 to beautiful Harvard Yard and the campus and a 20 minute walk to Huron Village and Formaggios the best grocery store in the U.S.
Polly was a wonderful and caring host and very knowledgeable of the area and it's history. The house is rich in New England history. To top it off for a quick meal you need only walk 5 minutes to Darwin's, easily the funkiest coffee shop in Cambridge, with a full array of interesting customers from hipsters to venerable profs!

Polly's place was perfect for my Dad. He stayed for 9 nights and found Polly warm and welcoming. She was very accommodating with regard to check-in and check-out times. The place was very clean, had a terrific view, and was otherwise exactly as described. It was only a short walk to Harvard Square. He would definitely stay again and was sad to leave.
Polly's home is wonderful and the location is excellent. The room, which is on the third floor is spacious with a comfortable bed, private bathroom, WiFi, ample amount of cupboard space and much more. The room has a great view of the Charles river, which unfortunately i wasn't able to enjoy much due to the snowstorm. Best of all, Polly is a great hostess and a really lovely person. Polly and her family were very welcoming and flexible. I was given a set of keys and was free to come and go as i pleased, which was great. Hopefully i get an opportunity to visit again and would recommend folks vising Cambridge/Boston to stay at Riverbend B&B.
