  • This is an EXCELLENT place to stay if you're looking to be in Boston for any amount of time. I was staying the weekend for PAX EAST 2014, and this location is so convenient and affordable! I could have paid 900 dollars for hotels for 3 nights, but this was only a FRACTION of the cost!

    The house itself is BEAUTIFUL and spacious. The location is perfect. It's right around the block from the Fields Corner Red Line station. On the way, you'll see all sorts of restaurants and a quaint little park. The neighborhood is safe and secure.

    The house is also clean, as Hermina has a personal assistant who stops by the house every day to work and make sure that things are in order. Top notch service! Even if you never see anybody else, you'll have directions for things posted all over the place. The space has access to a living room with cable tv, a full kitchen, with everything from a fridge to a rice cooker... it's just the best.

    There's even a guest book near the front door. You can see that throughout the years Hermina has had literally hundreds of pleased visitors who were so thankful for her excellent hospitality.

    Five stars aren't enough!

  • Hermina's house is beautiful and my room was spacious and comfortable. Very comfortable bed too.

    Hermina was a gracious host as well. I'm very grateful for the way she accommodated my awkward schedule.

    I'd definitely stay with her if I return to Boston and would have no problems recommending it to others.

  • Hermina is a great host, very worm, open and care.
    We enjoyed staying at her place.

    October 2012
  • Nice house with beautiful rooms in a very mixed neighborhood. Close to the T and just a few stations to the city center - very convenient for people like me who need public transport! Hermina is a great host! She even took me to the Armenien church when I told her I had been to Armenia and was interested in the country.

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.
