I searched Inns with fireplacerooms and then found this charming place for a Saturday night. The manager is terrific and the rooms are just what you dream of for a cozy weekend. We loved our stay and would definitely return. The main entrance is oak and there is a wood fireplace and an unpretentious atmosphere.

We stayed at the Bertram Inn when we visited Boston in early March 2016 to watch our daughter take the silver at ECACs at BU. Having traveled to this meet before, we stayed in a local (very nice) hotel. However, when I was booking a place this year, the hotel rate seemed VERY high. I looked at other hotels in...

I am on the road all the time and usually stay in a corporate hotel. I had some personal business in the immediate area and a friend suggested this inn. Great correspondence between my first inquiry and booking. Warm welcome and explanation of everything. Comfortable bed. Updated bathroom. Fast internet. Good breakfast. What I really enjoyed was the print editions...

Friendly staff, sumptuous breakfast, snacks available all the time. The king-size bed was so high, I needed a step stool to get in. Luckily, there was one! I did not have a car, but parking was at an additional cost and looked to be very limited. Location was very convenient to Coolidge Corner as well as Longwood medical facilities.

A beautiful, historic inn with lovely well appointed rooms. The inn keeper was delightful and very helpful with directions and recommendations on local restaurants.

I booked the Bertram for one night on a phone app while waiting to deplane at Logan. The Innkeeper, Dia, upgraded me upon arrival, and I loved my room, Room 2, on the first floor.

We stayed at the Bertram Inn last weekend and had the same room as on our last visit. We bring our dog and she likes knowing the room and the place. It was quiet and we slept well. It has everything you need. My only request would be better lighting for reading in bed.

Everything about the Bertram Inn was nicely done. The staff were attentive, friendly, anticipatory and great hosts. Our first floor bedroom was charming, clean and very comfortable. And we so enjoyed our breakfasts and snacks (especially the homemade cookies)! This is the best B&B we've stayed at...out of more than a dozen. Great location in Brookline, too. Not far from...
