Inn is located on Sewall Street in
the Coolidge Corner section of Brookline. It's
a wonderful Victorian home/turned B&B. The rooms
range from somewhat grand to cozy, some with private
baths. A formal but comfy parlor offers continental
breakfast in the morning, warm cookies and tea
later in the afternoon. In the summer months,
a wide porch opens up for chatting, reading, people-watching.
An addition to the inn opened last winter, but
I haven't seen it yet. Parking is available--not
easy to find in Brookline! Coolidge Corner is
filled with interesting shops and lots of ethnic
restaurants; however, you can hop the subway (T)
on Beacon Street and be in downtown Boston in
about 10 or 15 minutes. A charming, friendly,
safe place to spend your time. Website: http://www.Bertraminn.com,

recommended the Bertram to many visitors. No one
has yet been disappointed.

years ago I stayed at the Beechtree
Inn, within walking distance of the
Museum of Fine Art,
two blocks from the subway(T) in a nice, reasonably
priced neighborhood for eating interesting food,
cheaply. And there are also several great bookstores
in the neighborhood -- perfect for browsing. All
in all, a really pleasant location for a woman
traveling alone. The Inn has at least two singles
without bath, one of which I reserved, at a really
lovely price for all the above conveniences. 83

When I was
job hunting in Boston, I avoided the average $185/night
hotels and stayed at the Constitution
Inn, which is located adjacent the
Charlestown Navy Yard.
While not fancy, it is near the water, the USS
Constitution, a convenient $1 water
taxi to downtown, and a great little Italian restaurant.
They even have a gym and a swimming pool. Private
rooms at the Inn cost less than $US90 per night.

Inn at http://www.constitutioninn.com/.
Christy, Boston, USA
going to Boston by car, my favorite place to stay
when visiting the city has always been the 200
year old Wayside Inn
in Sudbury (25 miles from Boston -- about a 45
minute drive). It's very near Concord and Lexington
and is, indeed, the inn the poet Longfellow wrote
about in 'Tales of a Wayside Inn'. It was lovingly
restored by Henry Ford, who also built a lovely
chapel and moved a grist mill and the little red
school house (of Mary's little lamb fame) to this
location. Lots of good antiquing in the area.
