    Historical Traveler Reviews Encore Bed and Breakfast Boston

    One of the Best B and B's in Boston


    I cannot say enough about the time we had at Encore, it will bring us back to Boston over any other city. We stayed the 19th to the 21st of February, and will stay longer next time. Everything was perfect; the privacy, the light conversation, the simple, delicious breakfast, the delightful hosts, and the room! Rooms are designed with a contemporary atmosphere, very tasteful, and filled with light; a refreshing departure from most inns/hotels. We stayed in the Sondheim room, and loved it. The hosts always made us comfortable, we honestly felt as though we were staying with friends. Thank you very much R and D!

    A Great Choice for Exploring Boston


    Encore is a lovely, comfortable place in a beautiful, walkable neighborhood. I was on a business trip and enjoyed being out of the soul-less hotel and able to get away from the convention center. Blocks from the T, which gets you everywhere and close to tons of charming and delicious cafes, bistros and groceries, Encore is a great choice. The host is kind, makes great coffee and appreciates your privacy. Perfect for arts fans. I stayed in the Bernstein room on the 2nd floor, I'm up by 8, so I didnt mind any breakfast noise (that is served next door) but request a 3rd floor room if you want to sleep in. I'll be back!



    My wife and I stayed at the Encore B&B from March 4-March 8. It is located within short walk of Hynes Convention Center-Copley Square. Great restaurants right around corner on Tremont Street, also fun botiques. We stayed in the Albee Suite, the room was beautiful. Breakfasts were great and Reinhold treated us more like treasured relatives than paying customers. We ate like Royalty and enjoyed our stay immensly. We have stayed in B&Bs all over and this one rates as one of the best. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to email me.

    Already looking forward to breakfast...


    We couldn't have picked a better place to become engaged. The Jumbotron at Fenway said, "Janet will you marry me?"She said yes, and the Sox scored 8 runs before the inning was over. An omen to a perefct weekend... you bet. But mostly in part to the Encore B&B. After checking into the Albee room, we walked to Fenway because the neighborhood was condusive to doing so and centrally located to all of the sights. The room was cleverly appointed and had such a great vibe. I had been planning this trip for months... it just had to be perfect. And thanks to our great hosts at the Encore, it was. Breakfast was really something to look forward to. And what a great place to come home to after a romantic dinner. We came from Tennessee and could have stayed anywhere, given the nature of our trip. But we chose to roll the dice on the Encore, and couldn't have been any luckier. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer. One weekend wasn't enough. We're coming again this summer to celebrate our anniversary, and the first thing I did, even prior to getting hard-to-get Red Sox tickets, was finding out if Reinhold had availability. We're already looking forward to unpacking... and oh yes, that fabulous breakfast.

    Cozy, charming B+B


    Located in the historic South End, on a residential block of charming brick facade townhouses, the Encore B+B is a great find. We stayed in the Bernstein Room on the second floor. The modern decor (think Design Within Reach) contrasted nicely with the exposed brick walls. Most sights are within walking distance and the T is quite close by (Prudential or Back Bay) as well.

    The inn keeper, Reinhold, makes a wonderful breakfast to order each morning. He was very kind to us, offering directions, recommendations and unobtrusive conversation.

    If you are not an early riser, you might want to consider one of the 2 rooms on the top floor. The Bernstein is right next to the kitchen, where breakfast is prepared and there is a bit of extra noise. We are early risers, so this was not an issue for us.

    A great B&B


    What a fantastic B&B, and a great location in the South End of the city. We stayed in the Bernstein Room at the back of the house. It was suprisingly large, with a ensuite bathroom. It was also very well decorated. Our hosts were exceptional with the help they gave in transporting us to our next stay. Breakfast was first class. The only downside i would mention here is the timing in having breakfast. As the table only seated 4 people, and 6 or more were staying at the B&B, we did clash at one sitting. However this was resloved quickly by Tea & Coffee being served in our room until the table was free for us to sit down. I would therefore suggest a time option added to the Breakfast requirement list, to avoid this happening in the future. Otherwise this B&B was a gem to have found. And i will certainly be returnning there in the future.

    Encore, Encore, Encore.....


    My girlfriend and I spent a weekend at Encore B&B and absolutely adored it. Very well decorated with clean facilities, excellent service, delicious breakfast, beautiful location, and romantic. We felt very much at home while staying at this B&B and would recommend it to any and everyone. Everything about this place was perfect, all the way down to our room having EIGHT wall outlets, more than enough for the techies such as myself. We didn't want to leave....

    TIP: Ask for the Albee Room with the Balcony, it has a beautiful front view of the neighborhood.

    Good spot; great rooms; lovely breakfast


    A beautifully put together B&B in a swish part of town. The hosts are friendly, and the place is very peaceful.

    I've stayed in two of the three guest rooms, and both were quite something. With so few rooms, it's a quiet place with very personal service. The catch, for some people, will be occasionally ending-up eating breakfast around a table with other guests. Depending on your point-of-view, and state of wakefulness, you'll either enjoy chatting with others or wish there was another table. Having said that, the group breakfast's a common experience in American and Canadian B&Bs.

    The area's very pleasant, safe, and easy to reach; the subway's a 10-minute walk up the road. The houses look like they came straight out of 'Ally McBeal', and round-the-corner are some lovely restaurants and coffee houses. The library next door has free net access too - which is good if, like me, you don't want to spend a fortune on net cafes.

    The rooms are well designed: one of the hosts is an architect, and it shows. The morning brekkie selection includes a gorgeous granola/yoghurt concoction and great coffee.

    All in all, it's excellent - if a little pricey. But, for a luxurious and intimate spot in Boston, I'd recommend it.

    The Cast at Encore!


    Upon my first visit to Encore B&B I discovered I needn't look anywhere else! Being a frequent visitor it feels like coming home each time. The sleek design of the rooms are both relaxing and inviting. The breakfast nook offers the opportunity to meet interesting travellers from all over while enjoying a variety of breakfast choices. Reinhold does a splendid job of entertaining his guests and pointing out sites & activities in and around the city. And when it comes time to leave, you feel like you're bidding adieu to friends - but not for long, it's just au revoir until the next time!

    An early start today leaving beautiful and crazy New York for Boston. Rather than flying, Donna thought it would be something different to catch the train from Boston to New York. Upon reaching Penn. Station our first job was to find the Red Hats, who for a small fee, help you with your luggage and take you to the train, which at the enormous train station (during peak hour) is an enormous help and well worth the tip of around ...

    ... Arietta exited and acknowledged the crowd with a wave of his hat. So with the no-hitter broken up I know could root for the Sox in earnest. Unfortunately they managed only one more hit and lost 2-0. The trip back to my car was a much longer and hotter ordeal as everyone and their dog that rode the T all headed to one station to catch their train. It was a sauna in the station and of course my train was the last to arrive and was fairly ...
