Boston Globe: "Design and taste are married well at South End Inn:   The South End is the largest district of Victorian row houses on the National Register of Historic Places . Encore is in one of these 19th - century brick homes, a vertical stack of rooms at one end of a quiet street between Tremont Street and Columbus Avenue. We found it online, hitting pay dirt in our never-ending quest for a B&B with clean lines and contemporary furnishings.”
