“A cosy place to stay in Boston”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

We stayed in the Beech Tree Inn for 4 nights. We had a little trouble finding it initially - it's on a VERY long road so if you just put the road name into your satnav it won't be much help! Put the inn name in as well. You can't miss it once you're on the right bit of the road.

There is parking at the Inn at an extra charge - you really don't need a car to explore Boston from here with the T station just a couple of minutes walk away (about a 20 min ride into central Boston). The welcome was very warm and great first impressions of the kitchen and communal areas. It's a bit like a grown up hostel - there are freshly baked goods regularly available from the kitchen and one large table for breakfast where you can sit round and talk to other travellers. There is quite an extensive choice for breakfast - toast, cereal, various fruits, juice, coffee (which is always available) etc.

We stayed in the music room which had an ensuite. It was very cutely decorated, with two single beds pushed together to make a double (so lots of space for those warm nights!). There was air con and a ceiling fan which was handy to leave on overnight as it was much quieter than the air con unit. The bathroom was small but clean and pleasant. Each day two water bottles were put in the room which was a nice touch - you can refill these in the kitchen which has filtered tap water. We slept well - despite its city location the Inn is very quiet.

One of the nicest touches was the book left in the room that told you about the history of the inn and then detailed useful information for the local area. The book (and staff) are very useful for finding places to eat within walking distance - there's certainly plenty of choice in the local area. Coolidge Corner is just a few minutes walk away with restaurants, Trader Joes grocery store and a copying shop where you can buy Charlie Cards for the T (we asked the staff at the Inn and they directed us to the shop).

I would give this place 5 stars except I have stayed in slightly nicer places for a cheaper price, and the decoration in the room (while cute) was not particularly to my personal taste. What you do get here is comfort and a sense of uniqueness not found in chain hotels. I would almost certainly stay here again if I went back to Boston.

i stayed there recently and was quite repulsed to find holes in my blanket. my friends who traveled with me had a room on the third fl. i, traveling solo, was given room 4. room was tiny, with a minature tv. but what bothered me were the blanket on my bed which had a few holes in it. with all the money they seem to be making- how about replacing 1 twin size blanket?

Room Tip: do not stay in room 4

Two blocks off the Saint Paul's street T-stop, 5-10 minutes walk from Coolidge Corner for local services.

The B&B itself was excellent, we stopped for three nights in room 10. Excellent home made breakfast and very helpful staff.

This is a great option for a trip to Boston! The price is quite reasonable, and you're situated just a couple blocks from the Green Line to get into Boston. I think what really stood out was the awesome staff. They were more than willing to help with anything and answer questions. In addition to the usual bed and breakfast (both of which were really good), they also have homemade snacks out all day long, movies to watch in your room, all the maps and site info you'd need, and parking for just $7! We also appreciated how sustainability-conscious they were too, with recycling and compost available. Absolutely recommend it!!

Very cute charming house at a quiet neighborhood yet close to trader joes, banks, restaurants, and the T.
Excellent customer service and by far the cutest and nicest place I have stayed At in the US.
Their breakfast is excellent and tasty baked good served all day long.
I am coming back for sure.

We stay at the Beech Tree every year for the Boston Marathon. The staff are so kind and welcoming; there are always fresh flowers out and baked goods to snack on, and they make a special effort to set out breakfast very early for the runners who need to depart for the marathon well before sunrise. Our dogs were welcomed and supplied with cosy beds and water and food dishes. The gardens were especially beautiful this year. Brookline is a great location: within striking distance of downtown Boston, very close to the green line, but quiet and elegant, and plenty of shops and conveniences at Coolidge Corner, just steps away. We have already reserved again for next year.

Room Tip: some rooms have shared baths

Not another words to convey how much we love The Beech Tree! From the minute you walk in the back door into the kitchen and smell the freshly baked treats you know you are in a wonderfully, welcoming home. The extremely helpful and friendly staff are always on hand to answer questions and make you feel at home. Homemade baked goods are plentiful, usually more than three varieties of goodies at any time, along with freshly brewed fair trade coffee and lovely assortment of teas. Special breakfasts on weekends! An extensive array of DVDS for viewing. Rooms are decorated tastefully and cheerfully, and the entire house is immaculate, with all the right touches, especially if you happen to arrive during any holiday season. Can't say enough good things about the inn. We have stayed three times and slept in three different rooms, with wonderful memories of each experience.

Room Tip: All rooms are great, just depends whether or not you want to share a bathroom. If you choose a room...
