The Space

Dorchester is a historic neighborhood of over 6 square miles in Boston, Massachusetts, United States. The town was founded by Puritans who emigrated from Dorchester, England in 1630.
The house is Beautiful Victorian houses built on 1848.
This is not the wealthiest part of Boston, yet very convenient , affordable and save location to the city center, Cambridge, Harvard Square, MIT, ocean, South Shore
The house is big and spacious on three floors and attached Townhouse behind the main house. Can accommodate 8-10 people.
Room A: is my library setting in the basement, big room with electric fireplace, bar sink in the room and shared bathroom. There is a dehumidifier for the humid days, and big fan for hot days. Normally it is a cooler place. It is a big space, can accommodate 3-4 to make it economical if needed. There is a king size bed and sleep futon.
Wireless internet access, cable TV, home phone for you to make local calls.
Location to public transportation: 4 min to walk to the T- red line Fields Corner stop. Red line is the most convenient line in Boston which connects you to any directions you need to go. The South Station is the 5th stop from the house and next one is Downtown Crossing stop, continues to MIT, Harvard on the same line direct.
You can end your day in the ocean for sunbath, swim or nice walk in Castle Island (Historical site). JFK Library and Museum, UMASS Boston are in Dorchester two stops from the house.
Parking: unlimited (privilege for the area).

From the South Station: T-red line Ashmont train, outbound to Fields corner it may be $15-20,
Safety: It is save to walk from T station to the house even late nights.
In front of the house is a Vietnamese Buddhist center and the back of the house is the of the branch of Boston police station. It is very safe between two of them :)

  • Host did try hard to accommodate my last minute booking.

    July 2014
  • Great place. We never met Hermina, but she was prompt with communications.

    The house is clean and cozy. We stayed in the downstairs apartment and were very comfortable. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat if we ever pass through Boston again.

    July 2014
  • Spacious and extremely comfortable room. I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Hermina and Donna but my communication with them was very fast and efficient. The house has literally everything you would need for a pleasant stay. I would stay there again the next time I'm in Boston!

    June 2014
  • Thank you to Hermina and house manager Donna for a nice stay in Dorchester. We appreciated the clear directions on how to arrive at the house and found it to be clean and orderly upon arrival. We finished our one night stay with a nice breakfast. Thanks for everything!

    June 2014
  • We didnt actually meet Hermina but we had a big room with two big beds. Both the room and the bathroom next door were very clean. We had a great weekend in Boston and highly recommend staying herminas place.

  • Never actually met Hermina or the house manager, but the stay was very pleasant and there were no issues. Our room was very large and the bed was comfortable.

    May 2014
  • Very nice and friendly! Close to subway!

    May 2014
  • Hermina has created a really lovely place in her Dorchester house. She offers a well decorated, well designed, well thought out and well run Airbnb operation which offers value as well as a convenient location for many Boston area destinations. Donna also does a great job helping manage the place and the whole experience was even more than I hoped or expected.

    May 2014
  • Very nice place ideally located. The bedroom we rent was in the basement with 2 larges and confortables bed. Place was clean and with a lot of place. I highly recommend this place.

    May 2014
  • Stayed for 2 nights. One in Apartment 1 Room A and another in Apartment 2 room G. Was clean, comfortable and suited my needs perfectly. Didn't get a chance to meet Hermina but Donna (house manager) was very gracious and helpful.

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.
