I stayed two nights at Encore in the Bernstein. The room was very nice (the linen is very soft!) and the decoration is a very nice touch. It's great to stay in a house that seems typically bostonian. The breakfast was great, all fresh and natural, a positive aspect of my stay. Reinhold was very welcoming and helpful. He gave me some advice on how to get around the places I wanted to see. He even suggested a play on the saturday night since I was staying on my own. There are many different guidebooks in free access in the dining room. The location is great, you are not far from the subways and buses and the neighbohood is ageable. I would recommend this B&B for anyone looking for a quiet b&b in boston with an actual breakfast.

We celebrated my daughter's 21st birthday in Boston, staying at Encore. It was the perfect location to explore some of the most attractive areas of the city -- the Museum of Fine Arts, the Newbury shopping district, the Theatre District, and many, many wonderful restaurants and shops. Reinhold's dining suggestions were spot on, and next time we stay in Boston we will absolutely take his suggestion to check out the Zeitgeist Stage Company which performs just around the corner. Parking is available for a nominal fee, which is a huge plus.

Room Tip: A visitor to Encore should be prepared for the stairs, though we recommend staying in one of the roo...

This B & B has one thing that no other B & B in Boston has and that is owner/host, Reinhold. When speaking with Reinhold, it is clear why he and Encore are so successful. His kind personality and soft demeanor translate directly into the overall beauty, feel and service found at Encore. The breakfasts are light, tasty, and fresh. The rooms are clean, intelligently organized and decorated. And the location is extremely convenient and flexible, offering variety and quality.

Like myself, Reinhold is an architect. I was pleased to find that he is very willing to discuss his personal life relative to his career and passion(s). He was also more than willing to suggest great places to visit and eat.

Because my experience was so pleasant at Encore, I will look no further when returning to Boston. They will certainly be receiving a phone call from me.
