This is the first time we stayed in a B & B in Boston and I was not sure if I would like it. It was so much better than I imagined. You get to stay where the people of Boston live in a beautiful Brownstone. The bed and room were very nice with Aveda toiletries (nice touch). Reinhold (the...

We are more then happy that your first time stay in a B&B was something to remember and mentioning that you would choose Encore again when you make it back to town is something we always love to here. Hope this visit encourages you to try out B&B's again!

Charming host, personalized service, very comfortable room, super thick bath towels, delicious breakfast with several choices, great neighborhood with lots to enjoy nearby or inexpensive Uber ride to other Boston sights -- and more reasonable cost than chain hotels. Highly recommend for a unique and pampered guest experience.

I am clearly thrilled reading this review - thank you for the personal compliments! We call ourselves so lucky to have the Beard Award winning bakery Flour in our neighborhood, and that we are able to offer a variety of their products on our breakfast menu.

We stayed here in 2008 and decided we'd stay here again. It was again a delight. The location is great for restaurants, cafes etc. It's a lovely location and great to stay in a real community rather than in big hotel. Reinhold is as welcoming as ever and the Bernstein room was perfectly comfortable. We enjoyed our breakfasts in the...

Fantastic south Boston historic B&B. Clean quite, easy walk to downtown and Fenway. Located in a tree lined, quite residential street with lots of restaurants near by. Lots of stairs, but very manageable for us (in our late 50"s). Light continental breakfast served each morning with fresh baking...take the sticky bun over the German fitness bread ha ha... I had...

We've stayed at Encore twice now and we'd not want to stay anywhere else in Boston. Johnny - the housesitter while the owners were on vacation themselves - did an excellent job making us feel welcomed and preparing breakfast for us. Great job! Breakfast is served on one table that you share with other guests. While we love getting to...

My 17 year old daughter and I stayed at encore for one night while touring colleges. Although we had very little time there, it was absolutely lovely - the room, the location, the hosts, the food. As someone who does not sleep well I appreciated being able to take a late night walk along the brownstone lined streets and find...

Encore is a lovely BnB with a European feel and a welcoming host. My husband and I stayed for a long weekend in December. The room was comfortable and clean.

Staying in South End

Neighborhood 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.
