I say "not at all stuffy" because I generally don't like bed and breakfasts. I find those forced morning interactions daunting and it always feels like you are in someone's house which is uncomfortable for me. While technically a bed and breakfast the Bertram Inn gives you beautiful rooms with private baths and a lot of privacy. It feels more like an old fashioned hotel where you have an elegant first floor sitting room with newspapers and sofas and little tables around as well as a sunroom and outdoor porch. You can wander around happily. The house itself is a historic gem and decorated accordingly. Breakfast was lovely. I sat alone at a table near a window while my husband recovered upstairs from a big night out. The service was really nice -- again, causally elegant. The Inn is in Brookline, on a tree-lined street and very quiet at night--even though right around the corner are tons of restaurants and bars and the above-ground T train which will take you downtown in 15 minutes. Our room was on the 3rd floor and while great, I think the least special room b/c we booked last minute. I saw other rooms because the doors were open awaiting that night's guests and they were historically decorated, expansive, and clean. I'd for sure stay here again. We used hotel tonight and got a good deal.
