2 June 2008 Early start in NYC to get to La Guardia airport for the flight to Boston. We sat in a queue of planes on the runway waiting to take-off for longer than the 30 minute flight to Boston! The joy of air travel .the US! Still we made it in one piece to Boston, and having deposited our luggage at the B&B we're staying in we went for a wander …

Then, as we were close we decided to grab a train to Havard - easy one to get there (it did hurt passing the station for MIT) . A quick walk through the university - funnily enough we were at the science centre; back through some dorms, with Connor playing a soccer version of totem tennis and back on the trains. In the interests of planning ahead ...

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!
GREAT PLACE GREAT LOCATION GREAT HOST
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.
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.
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.
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.
New York, NY
A beautifully put together B&B in a swish part of town. The hosts are friendly, and the place is very peaceful.
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!
Lovely Town House in the South End - German Spoken Here
A Boston Gem: Lovely restored town house in Boston´´s South End. Extremely interesting is the carefully designed interior which is influenced by the Bauhaus School of Design. A "Top Tipp" in the German ADAC travel guide book about New England.Encore B & B, 116 W. Newton St., Tel. 247-3425
