Very nice place, nice rooms, wonderful and helpful innkeeper (Reinhold speaks German), breakfast with different kinds of bread from a nearby bakery, good location for visiting the city, nice neighbourhood, different restaurants nearby - we would definitely stay there again!

Whilst our hosts were away most of the time we were there, they had arranged for a lovely house sitter, David to take care of us. David looked after us very well with great breakfasts and lots of chat about many varied topics about Boston. The USA, traveling and food. We would certainly consider staying again if in Boston in...

We recently spent 3 nights at Encore B&B and had a great experience. Very good location, excellent restaurants, and a very comfortable, spacious room all made our stay memorable. Our host, Reinhold, was very accommodating and made sure all our needs were met. Though we checked out before breakfast time, Reinhold made coffee and served us breakfast before we departed.... More

This lovely, Boston red stone B & B is close to the heart of the city and within walking distance of lots of good restaurants. Our room was beautifully and tastefully furnished and had its own balcony looking over the street. There was a good selection of continental breakfast foods and our hosts, Reinhold and David were absolutely charming.

Dear Karen. It sounds like you took advantage of our location close to Boston's "Restaurant Row". There is even a Food-Tour for the South End and we tried it out, but sine it's scheduled at lunchtime it can include only a limited range of restaurants and therefor doesn't really point out the wide range of choices you have in 5...

Dear guests. We are sorry that we didn't meet your expectations, which have been based on Tripadvisor reviews. We pointed out on this site before, that city ordinance doesn't allow us to cook a full breakfast and at no point have we claimed to do so.
