If you have ever been to Boston you know you have to be a multi millionaire to stay anywhere within 50 miles of the place. We were glad to find the Bertram Inn and thought it to be clean and reasonable. It is a lovely old B&B and preserved quite well. We took the least expensive room (15) that was... More

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. Our breakfast service is one of our hallmarks and we pride ourselves on providing a fresh breakfast each morning. Our breakfast service is served from 8 AM to 10 AM and often stays out until 10:15 AM if guests are still eating. The hot portion of our breakfast is prepared in small... More

The outdoor arbor porch, or the indoor sun porch, were perfect places for breakfast. The room was quiet, even though the house was full on all 3 weeknights of our stay. Great location for walking to both the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, as well as the JFK birthplace home. The short walk to the "T" is a great example of... More

We emailed back and forth before our visit and the staff was quick to reply and very helpful. Upon arrival the staff were very welcoming and helpful. The dining area full of snacks - home baked goods, fruit, all the coffee/tea you desire plus much more! We enjoyed our evening on the sheltered deck that was bursting with grapes. Hot... More

While visiting Boston recently, we stayed at The Bertrum Inn in Brookline, MA. It was one block off the T-line (Mass transit underground) into central Boston. As well as being convenient, they served a wonderful breakfast to start our day. The rooms were clean and spacious. BUT THE BEST PART WAS THAT THE STAFF WAS THE NICEST AND KINDEST THAT... More

This inn is a meticulously renovated Queen Anne-style home. You feel instantly at home as you check in. We stayed in the junior suite, and it exceeded all expectations. The bed--ahhh! A hot breakfast is offered each morning. Parking is on premises for a $15 fee.

We recently stayed here as part of our 30th anniversary trip. The location was excellent for our excursions to downtown Boston, Harvard, and Fenway. The inn is very clean and comfortable and incredibly quiet. The breakfasts were excellent and I enjoyed that they were continental in style. The treats that were available every day were a nice bonus. I highly... More

My husband and I were in town for our daughter's college graduation and wanted to be near her Brookline apartment. We have stayed at the Samuel Sewall Inn a few times and since it was closed due to renovations we decided to try the Bertram Inn. We were not disappointed as our room was comfortable and quite large and the... More

It's a great old house converted into an Inn with perhaps 10 rooms. It's incredibly charming. They serve breakfast everyday (continental + one or two hot items) and they have snacks out all day. The main room has a fireplace and comfy couches, plus there is a nice sun room where you can hang out and work. I would definitely... More
