My room was clean and comfortable. The ceiling fan kept the room cooler at night. The house is very close to the redline which is why I stayed there. Hermina doesn't respond to texts but was easy to talk to in person and made sure I was comfortable.

It is close to the Red Line Station, restaurants and super markets. Good for short stay in Boston. While there were full house guests, the host provided a microwave for my convenience.

Hermina's place is 5 mins walk from Fields Corner red line subway station. It's very convenient, with a lot of food places around. Room A that I stayed in is very spacious and comfortable for my family. We had all the facilities that we needed. No trouble communicating with Hermina at all!

Hermina's place is 4 mins walk to Fields Corner Red Line T station which brings you directly to South Station and Harvard. You can find some Chinese takeouts, piza and a bar on the way to train station. We were given the attic room, spacious but the stairs to the room is steep and narrow. May not be suitable for children and people with huge and heavy luggage. Room was cold on the night we arrived but she provided us with a mobile heater the next day so it was okay.

Originally from Armenia, I live in Boston for many years. My house is one of many beautiful Victorian houses in 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. Traveling is part of my life and staying with family opens chance to meet local people.
I share what I know about Boston with pleasure and sometimes I learn from travelers what they discovered in Boston.
