The property is in a prime location to explore Boston. The neighborhood is peaceful, walkable and very 'old Boston'. The Abbey was bright and beautiful with an alcove sitting area and balcony. A light breakfast included personal choice of bakery items and great coffee (and juice), yogurt, eggs, cheese, meats and fresh fruit. The owners were interesting and friendly. Would...

Dear Kate. Thank you for a fabulous review, which ends with the statement that you would stay with us again - the highest compliment we could expect. We are lucky to have Boston's finest bakery in the neighborhood, which allows us to serve the highest quality of baked goods fresh every morning. Of course we hope that you had a...

I have been to a lot of bed and breakfasts, and this was one of the best! Reinhold was a treat: a great host, a very interesting person, and a great resource of information about the city and neighborhood. They were flexible in helping me get my luggage in early and arrange to have my bags in my room when...

Dear Brandon. TripAdvisor had to remind us that we didn't respond to your favorable review. Of course we love your comment "The price is great for the quality, highly recommended!" especially after we have been told differently on another site. Unfortunately you and we suffered from the noise due to a total gutting of the interior in a building across...

Everything about Encore Bed and Breakfast is fantastic: location, hosts, breakfast, cleanliness of the room, decoration of the room. We used to stay at other B & B's in Boston but once we discovered Encore, we stay here on our visits to visit our son. We stay here 2 or 3 times a year and the qualities we like are...

It is always a special occasion for us when first time B&B visitors enjoy their stay. It sounds like you really explored the "Walking City" (as Boston calls itself) on foot and you covered a lot during your short stay. We hope to host you again sometime in the future.

Dear Guest. Thank you for a wonderful review! Yes, there are stairs to climb and we are well aware that this a challenge for our Boston Marathon guests, but we still think we made the right decision to dedicate the upper floors of our townhouse to the B&B, because the views especially from the Albee room are rewarding. We hope...

Dear Jennifer. Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review. We are proud that your first B&B experience has been a positive one.

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.

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.

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.
