  • I stayed here while I was attending a convention with my family and friends. There were 8 of us total and we never felt like there wasn't enough room! Everyone loved the house and everything that was there. Our host recommended delicious places to eat that were in walking distance as well, which made our time here perfect.

  • My friends and I (total 10 people) lived in Hermina's Beautiful Victorian House during Thanksgiving. Although at first we had some confusions, Hermina and her helper, Donna always reply us in a short time. The location is good; it is easy to get to the Dunkin Donuts, McDonalds, and the red line station in only a few minutes. We bought one week pass for the subway and it's very convenient since we took subway every day to different areas in Boston. Personally, I think the best part of the house was the kitchen as it had almost everything we needed for cooking. For example, there was rice cooker that we could use to have rice for our dinner. Utensils were also enough for 10 people. Overall, we felt relaxed in the house; it gave us a feeling of home!

  • Three of us stayed with Hermina for a whole week and we so loved being there! Her beautiful Victorian house is really spacious and well decorated with everything you need. Hermina could not be more friendly and welcoming, offering to help out in so many ways and lovely to meet.

    Response from Hermina:

    Dear Harriet thank you, it was nice to host you. Too bad I could not say you good bye

  • Very nice place and host. The house is big, comfortable, clean, with a lot of space and four rooms, with 1,5 bathrooms. The host is very nice, and we are happy to have met her. She lives in the same house than the guests. The area is in Dorchester, that is not close to downtown Boston, but the subway is close to the house. The area is not very good, and there is nothing to do here, but it is safe (and the police station is close to the house).

  • Very nice experience. Hermina is a lovely generous and trusty person. Her house is very well situated, only a few station from central Boston. Highly recommended!

    August 2012
  • Hermina is a nice host - affable and willing to impart information. The place is ok. There are a lot of rooms in the house but with two primary toilets so this tended to cause a delay in getting everyone out. We hit the peak of the heatwave and there was one portable aircon unit but the other room was left with a ceiling fan. Hence we only went back to the house in late at night when it was cooler. Area is close to a lot of Vietnamese restaurants - all pretty good. Near the JFK library as well.

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.
