David & Reinhold are warm and welcoming hosts. We were greeted promptly as arranged and shown our room. The building was easy to find and the small common spaces were clean and lovely. We stayed in the Albee room. The room was generously proportioned and included a small sitting area and balcony. The floors were hardwood and there was exposed...

Dear Diana. Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review about Encore. We will make sure that our housekeeper is going to see it. You were still enjoying the last week of our Winter Special, which ended with the beginning of Spring. Both David and I are looking forward to your next visit.

The Encore is such a beautiful B&B and located in a neighborhood with fabulous restaurants within walking distance. David prepares a fabulous breakfast and is available for any questions. Our room was spotless and beautiful decorated.

Thank you for taking the time, to leave a fabulous review on the TA website. As mentioned quite often we owe part of the "fabulous breakfast" to Flour bakery - Boston's Best and we are happy that we have them in the neighborhood! We hope to see you sometime in the future again. .

The Encore is the perfect place from which to explore Boston. David and Reinhold offer a real B&B experience - personal, helpful and friendly. This started before our stay, with emails advising of us of great places to eat and drink and of things to see. Once we were there, we found that the room was lovely and incredibly comfortable....

Dear Ben. Thank you for your kind review, which talks about the real B&B experience and we are proud to be able to provide it. We appreciate every guest, who recognizes the difference between a hotel and a B&B or a Vacation Rental and a B&B. Thank you also for talking about the location, which might be an important factor...

The Encore has only four rooms, each styled after a theatrical celebrity. There's the Albee, the Robbins, the Sondheim, and the Bernstein. I stayed for three nights in the Albee which had a king bed and a small ante room with a cocktail table and two chairs. The bathroom was of ample size with modern appliances along with a good...

Thank you again for chosing Encore for your stay in Boston and taking the time to review us. Trust us you are touching on a subject, that is very challenging for us.

My fiance and I stayed at Encore B&B for 4 nights over New Year. The second we drove up to the building we were already impressed. The outside is beautiful and is situated in a lovely avenue on the South side of Boston. We were greeted very warmly by Reinhold and then left alone to sort our things out. The...

This is my long overdue review of this fantastic B&B! My husband and I stayed here for a few nights in July and we couldn't have been more pleased. The B&B is a brownstone on tree lined street in a vibrant Boston neighborhood. We took the train from the airport and easily walked from the train stop to Encore. We...

Stayed for 3 nights at the end of September. Stylish and comfortable room. Very good breakfasts. Would be good to have in-room coffee maker. Restaurant list provided was useful. Wi-Fi was very inconsistent.

Dear Guest! Your review sounds like you stayed in September, before we bought new equipment to enhance our Wifi, however we must admit that we use Comcast, which unfortunately is the only provider in our area and their service especially in the evening is not optimal. We have noticed that our new equipment brought an improvement for our guests.

Thoroughly enjoyed the 3 nights spent here whilst visiting Boston. Delicious breakfasts and friendly, welcoming host. Located in a nice area of the City, only a short walk in. Was useful being able to purchase tickets for the Old Town Trolley Tours directly from our host.

Staying in South End

Neighbourhood Profile
South End
Stroll down the beautiful brownstone lined streets while capturing views of Boston’s tallest buildings from a distance. Some of Boston’s best restaurants are scattered around this neighborhood. There are many gems to be found, from jazz clubs to classy bars and restaurants. It is also home to art galleries, interesting boutiques, artsy stores and SOWA open market during the summer months. The South End is a true find in the city, with a more residential feeling than Back Bay.
