“Beautiful room, delicious breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

I just spent four nights in the Sondheim suite, and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The room was spacious, with lovely exposed brick and large windows. Reinhold is a gracious host, and the breakfasts are simple, fresh and delicious. The croissants aren't to be missed.

It was my first time staying at a B&B in Boston and my experience at the Encore was a wonderful one. The location was wonderful, the owners Reinhold and David made us feel very welcome and had many tips on what to see and do. They even managed to get us some tickets to the theatre. I was also impressed with the detail paid to the breakfast. Despite being caught in the blizzard there was a fresh breakfast that was served each morning. They also knew which restaurants would be open during the height of the storm. Local knowledge and attention to detail can't be beat. It was a beautiful space and I would recommend it to anyone traveling to Boston. Iwona.

I stayed at Encore the weekend before Super Storm Sandy came ashore. Needless to say, my flight to Pittsburgh on Monday morning was cancelled. Reinhold went out of his way to help with my travel needs and allowed me to stay at Encore for as long as necessary. But even under normal circumstances, Encore is a great B&B. It is clean, quiet, well-maintained and in a great location. The owners are helpful, thoughtful and charming. I highly recommend Encore B&B.

My girlfriend and I stayed in the Albee room just for one night and wished we could have stayed forever! The high ceilings, beams, beautiful decor, lighting and a balcony as well. It was so cozy, and the breakfast the next morning was absolutely fantastic. Reinhold, the owner, is a lovely man as well.

Looking forward to coming back ASAP.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Encore over President's day weekend while we were visiting Boston as tourists. Encore made our visit exponentially better - the rooms are beautiful with lots of thought involved in the design and are very clean and well-kept.

Breakfast is served every morning, and it was delicious. You can have as much or as little as you would like by marking your selections on the provided breakfast cards and stating what time you'd like to eat. Reinhold prepares the food, and serves it in their beautiful breakfast nook. The food (and the coffee) was all delicious. It also provided a nice opportunity to meet fellow guests if they happen to be eating at the same time.

The South End neighborhood that Encore is located in is quiet and residential but it's located right off Tremont Ave which is host to lots of nice shops and restaurants (we loved B&G oysters!!). We found it easy to walk from Encore to many other areas of Boston or to the nearby T station.

Reinhold was a great host and provided great suggestions, especially when we found ourselves having to deal with a blizzard outside one day.

We would definitely return to Encore when we visit Boston again.

Room Tip: The Sondheim room is beautiful and on the top floor which allowed for a little bit more privacy.

My partner and I stayed here during the Blizzard of 2013, and the Encore B&B was a lovely place in which to be during that time. The innkeepers were warm, the rooms were tasteful and cozy, the breakfasts were just right, the other guests were lovely, the neighborhood was beautiful and there were many great choices for food and drink, and the parking was reasonably priced and extremely convenient (not available when it snows heavily, per the website). We could not have made a better choice.

Room Tip: We saw all 4 rooms during our 5-night stay. They were all very nice. We stayed in the Albee Room and...

Reinhold M, Owner at Encore Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review, February 21, 2013
Thank you for a wonderfull review, despite the shortcomings during you stay during the Blizzrd of 2013. You made it easy for us and have been so understanding that we couldn't offer all our breakfast choices, due to the closing of our bakery. Of course we wished you could have experienced Boston at a better time when all restaurants are open and the Boston cultural scene would be easily accessible, instead you had to deal with closed public transportation. That Encore at least provided a "Great Stay" makes us happy
