When traveling to Boston, the Bertram Inn serves as an oasis from the hustle of downtown Boston. Located two miles from the heart of the city and one block from public transportation, guests are able to remain close to the cultural and business centers of Boston yet return to the tranquility of a bed and breakfast.

This colonial stopover is not 5 star, but it IS an ideal place to stay, because you are able to get to anywhere in the Boston must-see areas so easily, in less than an hour to the furthest away from these digs. Thoroughly enjoyed a 5 night stay here, and saw and did everything

A great place to stay while visiting Boston. Located just a short walk from the tram line to the city and in easy reach of nearby restaurants. The property built over 110 years ago is full of character (decorated like a family home) but it is very well maintained. The little

Good afternoon Jacqueline, Thank you for your inquiry. Rooms #2 and #3, both on the 1st floor off of the main lobby, feature a working fireplace (we provide wood). Best regards, Astrid Innkeeper

Thank you for your inquiry. Indeed, a 1st floor room is what we would recommend, in one of our Junior Suites, with a King bed and a pull out couch, with floor space for a pack and play. Both rooms, #2 and #3, feature bathtubs, which I know are convenient with little ones! We look forward to have you stay with us in the near future. Please, don't hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions. 617-566-2234 Sincerely, Astrid Innkeeper
