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...

As I knew how great breakfast they serve (complimentary) from my first visit, I was looking forward to my second visit. They did not betray me. My day in Boston started with a satisfaction with their warm and delicious breakfast. My second most favorite part of this inn is its luxurious bed that gives great comfort in sleeping. The location...

We had the pleasure of visiting the Bertram again this fall and once again, we loved every minute.

Pros: The Inn is beautiful. Our room was large and nicely decorated. The breakfast is amazing and there is food available for snacks like fresh baked cookies, muffins, granola bars, cereal and a fridge with milk, juice,hard boiled eggs and yogurt. There is a water cooler and Keurig for coffee and tea. This was greatly appreciated when we were hungry...

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are happy to know that there were some Bertram Inn amenities that you appreciated.

I have stayed numerous times at both the Bertram and Sewall House Inns, sister properties right across from each other in Brookline, Massachusetts. The Sewall House is being totally renovated.

Dearest Guest, We love to hear that you have made our Inns your "home away from home." It's wonderful having "family and friends" who truly appreciate what we have to offer, especially the charm of our Victorian home. We are just months away from completing the renovations at the Samuel Sewall Inn and look forward to having you stay there...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. It’s always nice to hear from our guests and what suggestions they have to better ourselves as well as what things they/you liked and found convenient. Indeed, our room rates tend to be lower than other chain hotels in the area, but higher than other Inns/B&Bs around us; we all have different amenities...

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.

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.
