This listing is for one of THREE rooms we have available in this house. The other two are:

We are Scott and Minter Richter of Minter & Richter Designs. We are lucky enough to own two beautiful Victorian homes right next door to each other in the historic neighborhood of Dorchester in Boston, MA.

The space

Fabulous Victorian home with three floors plus a basement for laundry. Built in 1860, the house is beautifully renovated on the interior. The EXTERIOR is getting painted in the Spring (so keep your eye out for that), but the interior is a real gem. Large kitchen with all new appliances. Large living room. Two fire-places for cozy winter sitting. The largest front porch in the area for summer, spring and fall.

The Room where you sleep has a QUEEN size bed, one sitting chair, a dresser, night stand, and large, hanging closet. Directly across the hall is a shared bathroom with a 6-foot tub and shower.

The big, purple Victorian house next door is our residence so we are always there if you need us or NOT if you don't :)

Guest access

Lots of free street parking for your car

Comlimentary Wi-Fi

Complimentary Continental Breakfast is available every day, but there is also a full kitchen available to you for anything you would like to make. Kitchen has all modern conveniences (fridge, oven, microwave, coffee-maker, espresso maker, dishwasher, pots, pans, dishes... all available to you.)

Complimentary Tea and Coffee Service available all day. Upon request, champagne will be waiting for you in your room when you arrive.

All guest are free to relax on the porch, living room, kitchen, yard etc.

Interaction with guests

There is always someone nearby to help you if you need it. Scott and Minter Richter live right next door. Also, we have our fabulous assistant Elisabeth Walsh who is here to help you at the drop of a hat.

Other things to note

Located within minutes of downtown Boston and Cambridge via the MBTA Subway. It is less than a half mile walk to either the Field's Corner or Ashmont station on the Red Line. From either T-stop, you can be downtown in minutes

Dorchester is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Boston. Culturally diverse and vibrant, it is loaded with fabulous restaurants, many within walking distance. Vietnamese, Chinese, Italian, Haitian, Jamaican, Irish (great Irish pubs nearby!) . There are also great gems like DBar just blocks away which is fabulous for cocktails and karaoke.

Polly was a lovely host, she made my partner and I feel at home. The house itself was beautiful, location a little out of the way but it isn't an issue. Polly was probably one of the nicest hosts I've met, providing us with lovely coffee, cold drinks and breakfast. I'd recommend this airbnb to anyone.

Polly was an awesome host! From start to finish our trip was perfect. From the freshly made muffins and coffee in a morning to the beautiful room and porch and excellent location. Both my twin sister and I couldn't fault it! I highly recommend anyone to stay with Polly. It was our first ever Air BnB experience and it was one to remember. Thank you Polly!

Wow. We felt very comfortable at Polly's place. The neighborhood was quiet at night, the bed very comfortable, and the shared bathroom luxurious. The house had great character and a convenient fenced in back yard for our dog. We enjoyed freshly baked muffins and fresh fruit on the outdoor porch in the morning. It was a relaxing stay. Polly provided quick and clear communication for our last minute booking. We would enjoy staying at Polly's place again if visiting Boston.

The house was even better than the pictures led us to believe, it was a great place to wake up after a long day of exploring the city. I would highly suggest Polly's "Mini-Mansion" to anyone needing somewhere to stay in Boston. Close enough to public transit to walk, easy enough for an Uber driver to find and comfortable enough for a great break from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Polly's place is a great place to stay. It's quiet, safe, and very quickly became a home away from home. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.
