Hello Dear Virtual Visitors!


We are on a roll!  This morning there are 7 cars in our parking lot and nearly a dozen rooms occupied at Irving House!


We are still offering only rooms with private baths. 


We are still leaving rooms vacant for two days after check out. 


We are offering a basic breakfast in our front hall starting at 7:30. Guests enjoy this meal on one of our porches or in their rooms.


Irving House has joined Coverified to track the health of our employees.  We are doing our best to protect them and our guests.  We expect our guests to do the same.


AND! Due to the good behavior of our residents and visitors, Massachusetts COVID numbers are trending in the right direction for some days, even weeks now!  Good job! The Governor has lifted the restrictions on visitors coming from all of our neighboring states, and New Jersey.  This is because THEIR numbers are also trending in the right direction.  This is due to us all taking precautions which we must continue to follow:

  • Wear a mask when in common spaces, including outside
  • Wash your hands or use sanitizer to be sure you are not carrying Cv
  • Keep 6’ apart from people as much as possible.


To make this easier in Cambridge for those enjoying our great outdoors, the City of Cambridge has established Shared Streets to allow bikers and pedestrians to use the streets as well as sidewalks to keep distant from each other.  This means that cars must travel slowly and carefully down these streets.  This is working all over.  In this good weather, we are all ready to be outside and moving around.  Even from six feet apart we can make eye contact and put a big enough smile on our faces that it shines beyond our masks. 

Outdoor AND Indoor dining is also possible now!  We hope you will come and enjoy your favorite restaurants once again.


Keep it up Cambridge residents and visitors!  We can learn and get through this!


We look forward to seeing you in Our Fair City soon!
