The Bertram Inn

The Bertram Inn is an elegant bed and breakfast steeped in the legacy of Boston architecture. Built in 1907, this 14 room mansion was originally a wedding present to the daughter of a Brookline tobacco merchant. With its grand sweeping staircase, quarter-sawn oak paneling and abundant floral gardens, it is a true beauty of New England heritage.

Convenient Location

The Bertram is a tranquil interlude from the bustle of downtown while remaining ever accessible to Boston. Located two blocks from our front door is the MBTA Green Line, a public transportation system to such destinations as Fenway Park and the North End as well as campus stops for Boston College, Emerson and Boston University. We are also a five minute walk from Coolidge Corner, a rustic neighborhood that offers upscale dining, an independent bookstore and the historic Coolidge Corner theater

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.


Experience the luxury, taste, and beauty the Bertram Inn has offered guests for over a decade. Polished, friendly service combined with luxurious amenities ensures guests an optimal stay. The Bertram Inn boasts wood-burning fireplaces, Italian linens, Turkish towels, our signature bathrobes, and workspaces with wireless internet for the business traveler.

Homemade Breakfast

Each morning at the Bertram begins with a gourmet breakfast prepared by our personal chef. This daily offering includes a hot entree, homemade pastries, farm-fresh eggs and a selection of locally roasted coffee. Treats are presented throughout the day, including an array of fruit, chocolate covered almonds and freshly baked cookies.

Medical Stay

The Bertram Inn is located in close proximity to the Boston Longwood Medical Campus which includes the Boston Children’s Hospital, the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and the Brigham and Woman’s Hospital. Patients and their families are encouraged to inquire about our preferred rates for guests undergoing treatment at these locations.

"I am so pleased that my family and I had the opportunity to stay at the Bertram Inn. The hospitality from accommodating staff to all our needs surpassed any customer service I have ever experienced when traveling. It truly felt like being at home while away from my home."
