Neighbourhood
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.

The bed was good and the room and the bathroom were clean but both cry for a refurbishment – the carpet is ripped off in places, the net curtains are old and shabby, the shower has a plastic curtain. Sound proof windows would be beneficial. The breakfast is served on a cramped

When the guest informed us that the room had not been cleaned the day before, we asked about when they left the B&B for the day. It turns out they came back to the B&B mid-day, and changed the sign to "Privacy Please." There are four rooms and the housekeeper came to re-do the room while they were back in the room with "Privacy Please" on the door, so she was respectful of that. Once we identified that issue the room was re-done for the remainder of their visit. Our rooms all have sitting areas, however they are not conducive to serving breakfast in the room with all the necessary amenities such as cream, butter, jam, coffee, tea, as well as yogurt plates and bakery items. Therefore we offer breakfast at the table in the breakfast nook. The space is intimate but comfortable seats 6 guests, as needed.

The rate includes taxes and fees, but not parking. They have two parking spaces and charge $20/night for a car. I'm not sure but I think on street parking in the area maybe for residents only.

They get their breakfast rolls from a french bakery nearby. They are indeed very good! There is no pool but the location is very good. Walking distance to the theatre district, Orchestra Hall and Fenway Park.

"I stayed in the Albee room"
"Albee room recommended as it has more room and a balcony overlooking the street."
"Rooms accurately described on Encore’s website."
"Rooms in the front face the pretty brownstones across the street."
"Definitely pick the room with the balcony, morning coffee/ booking reading very relaxing."
