Parkside on Ellery Bed and Breakfast Information

Description

Located in residential Mid Cambridge, Parkside on Ellery fronts onto the Joan Lorentz Park and the Cambridge Main Public Library. It is a five minute walk to Harvard University and bustling Harvard Square. The Italianate Victorian architectural style of the house has been restored to the time of construction in 1872. Short walks from Parkside can take you to world renown museum art collections, including the incredible Glass Flowers of the Harvard University Museum. Other walks can take you to live theatrical performances, shopping at unique specialties, artist collaboratives or international name stores or access to the Red Line Subway which will put all that Boston has to offer at your feet. And still other walks will take you to restaurants recognized for the quality and diversified cuisine of Cambridge. Lastly, there is the walk back to Parkside when, between activities, a nap or a restful sit in the garden might be the refresh you would like.
