  • Hermina's house was well-equipped and had a pleasant stay as well! Very close to the red-line which can get you to a lot of places in Boston. The room can get a bit warm in the summer, but definitely bearable.

    Response from Hermina:

    Nice to hear that you had a good time, Dear Tang
    thank you

    June 2014
  • We haven't met Hermina, but everything was arranged perfectly. We booked just 30 minutes in advance and called Hermina. She send us an email with further instructions. We had room D, a very nice and large room. The house was located close to the T, so it was easy to get to the center of Boston (about 20min). We could park our car on the street (for free), just make sure that you check the tow signs!

    We would recommend this place for your stay in Boston!

    Thanks Hermina!

    Thank you, I'm glad you had a god stay

  • Hermina is a wonderful host. We needed a place to stay until our apartment is ready to move in. Hermina and Donna have made our stay very enjoyable. The only bit of down side is the apt could be really warm in the summer and we could not figure out our the AC work.

    June 2014
  • We had a great stay at Hermina's place. The location is easy to find and good to reach with public transportation. We had all necessary information before we arrived.
    The house has a couple of rooms for guests and includes a kitchen that can be used. I recommend it.

  • Host was apparently out of town but Donna, the "housemother", was in charge. Had a very nice stay at Hermina's house; large room, wonderful bed, plenty of items for breakfast; location is about 15-20 ins from downtown Boston. Neighborhood was OK bur parking during the daytime is very, very difficult as the streets of Boston (Dorchester is an old area) are narrow and mostly one way. Street parking at night time was OK. All in all she has a lovely home and I would certainly recommend it again.

  • Lovely house, clean and roomy. The only problem I had was checking in. The bed in my room had obviously been slept in and sheets weren't changed. I tried calling Hermina only to find out that her number is an international number and I tried calling Donna the caretaker but kept getting her voicemail. I had to send an email and eventually got a response. It all got straightened out but that meant I was late for my meeting etc

    Other than that, I enjoyed my stay

    Response from Hermina:

    Sorry, for the confusion, Donna is always responsive and me most of the time I check my emails unless the time difference, which was the case
    thank you

  • Very well furnished house with everything you need, even a laundry machine and a dryer which i appreciated a lot. Friendly atmosphere in the house with other lovely guests and especially Donna, Herminas helper, did everything to fullfill our wishes. I can just recommend this place for a stay at Boston.

    It is very close to the train station.
    If you need a place to stay in BOSTON stay here. You will love it.

About
Originally from Armenia, I live in Boston last 15 years. My house is one of many beautiful Victorian houses in one of the oldest neighborhoods in Boston/Dorchester. The house is beautiful, big, clean and colors are my addition to its charm. I love colors you can see it in the pictures. I love the idea of B&B and now I have chance to host people from the world in my own house. I love traveling and the experience of meeting locals and one way of doing it, is where do you stay. I share what I know about Boston with pleasure and sometimes I learn from travelers what they discovered in Boston.
