“Charming and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

We stayed at the Beech Tree Inn last night (12/31/13). We were in Room 3. The room was huge. There was so much space. According to the history (which they provide you a nice overview of the entire history of the building), that room used to be the Parlor where music was played. The decor was done very nicely. The bed was very comfortable.
They make fresh baked goods every day - try the cookies!!! Yum! We could smell them being baked. :) Great coffee and a huge selection of teas.

Also, Room 3 is on the first floor and right next to the entrance, so very easy to get your things in and out. Though the lighting in the room could be improved with brighter bulbs - kind of felt like you were in a cave in the late afternoon/evening.

Staff was very pleasant and provided assistance with anything you needed.
They had a great DVD library if you just like a lazy afternoon before you head out for the night.
This is a great location as well. We were going to the Paradise Rock Club on Commonwealth Ave. It was only a .09 mile walk, which was very easy and not threatening at all. We felt very safe.

Food and shops are just blocks away from the Inn, as well as the T for public transportation. We didn't need to use our car again once we got there.
We will be going back there if we ever revisit that area.

This is a charming B&B very well located for the T, restaurants and all other basics e.g. Laundry.
We had room 3- the biggest one apparently, but also on the ground floor, which made it easy since we had a large amount of heavy luggage. The plentiful home baking was a nice touch, and much appreciated. There a a big snow fall, and the whole place was lovely and warm and snug. Nice to be able to open the windows for a bit of fresh air occasionally as well.

Room Tip: Room 3 is on the ground floor, very spacious. (Small shower)

This is a cosy B&B in the center of Brookline, located in walking distance to Brigham and Women's Hospital, the Broad Institute and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. It is decorated in 1920's style: there are hand-painted signs for breakfast hours, check out times and where to find the milk for tea and coffee, cute! Persian carpets and wingback chairs give it an old British flair. Breakfast is a real treat with yoghurt, fruit, fresh home-made pastry and granola. At any time of the day you will find coffee, a selection of teas, fruit and some baked treats. Some rooms i.e. #1 have shared bathrooms, but everything is clean and works well.

Room Tip: Book early if you prefer a room with a private bathroom. Choose a room on the 2nd floor if you want...

Lovely comfortable homely inn. Decorated 1920s style with appropriate flapper music playing all the time. Home baking always available, as well as tea and coffee. Extensive, yummy breakfast. Lovely leafy neighbourhood. Great for walking to Harvard Medical School - about 15mins walk.

Room Tip: Room 3 lovely and large but lighting a bit low

Recent TA reviews are pretty much spot on. Positives are proximity to dining & shopping & the subway (all walking distance), the daily baked goods, and the friendliness/helpfulness of the Innkeeper, Janette. Negatives are lack of breakfast table seating when occupancy is high, traffic noise out front at night (Longwood Ave. is a very busy connector), and tiny bathrooms (at least in Room 3 where my wife & I stayed). The room layouts & the "feel" of the property is more boarding house than B&B, but the house provides the essential comforts and the staff make you feel welcome while taking a "hands off" approach with its guests.

Room Tip: Room 3 is spacious & comfortable, but the bathroom & shower spaces would be a challenge for...

The Beech Tree Inn was recommended to us by friends who had stayed their a year earlier - it was a good recommendation!

We stayed in room 7A which was very comfortable and had an en-suite shower room. As their website says, breakfast is set for guests to choose what they want - and it is plentiful! My only criticism here would be that if a lot of guests are having breakfast at the same time it can be a little "busy" and you're not guaranteed a seat at the table. However, mixing with other guests in this informal setting adds to the holiday experience.

Good location for the T Green Line with a station within easy walking distance. And, good location for places to eat within easy walking distance in Coolidge Corner.

Janette, the Innkeeper, and her team were great hosts.

We had a pleasant stay at the Beech Tree B&B in lovely Brookline. Very homey with delicious baked goods, tea and coffee available throughout the day. Communal table in the dining room allows mingling - or not, if you prefer to read the NY Times or Boston Globe instead. A 5-minute walk to Harvard Street restaurant's, the T and Coolidge Corner shopping.
Some passing police siren activity throughout the night.
