We stayed for one night as part of a family holiday. We were made very welcome by the gracious "innkeeper"/manager, Dia. The inn is charming with many original features, reminding one of an Edwardian family home. Our bedroom was very comfortable and spacious. It had a large and very tall bed, which required a small two- step ladder to access(supplied)!...

Fantastic Inn with a great staff. Our suite #3 was beautiful. The snacks and breakfast were so delicious.

Once again I had the pleasure of staying at the Bertram, our third time in 2 months. This was a very last minute stay and Dia could not have been more accommodating.

One of my favorite places to stay. Just a block to a T stop. Parking on site. Gracious hosts. Wonderful, unique rooms. I hate to rave about it because it will be harder to get a room here! I've stayed in 4 different rooms. All were great. Don't worry if you are upstairs, they'll haul your suitcase upstairs for you!...

We were very comfortable and felt very much like home. The hospitality could not have been any better. The breakfast was delicious and all the snacks and coffee throughout the day and night was much appreciated after a long day at the hospital. I would recommend The Bertram over a hotel stay for sure !

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.
