A New Take on the Classic Inn
Prentiss House is the revival of the former Mary Prentiss Inn, a 20-room inn built in 1843, nestled between Harvard and Porter Square in an iconic neighborhood setting. Upgraded with modern amenities, fresh interior design and technology enhancements, Prentiss House marries rich history and charm with comfort and convenience. We have 20 rooms to choose from, including suites for up to four people, as well as a lush garden terrace and a sun-filled parlour lounge to relax and unwind in. With limited staffing and services, Prentiss House affords our guests added privacy, independence and the ability to explore the local restaurants, cafes and businesses in the area.
We have 20 unique rooms at Prentiss House, all updated with new finishes and furniture in 2022. The rooms were designed to maximize comfort and functionality but also to preserve the original architecture and layout of the historic 1843 inn. Most rooms have king beds, wet or dry bars with refrigerators and microwaves, and our suites have living areas with sleeper sofas. All rooms come with fresh linens and towels, smart TVs for streaming, controllable heat/AC, local coffee and tea options and free wi-fi. Rooms are cleaned once per stay and fresh linens and towels are available upon request. We offer discounts for local residents, groups and extended stays.
