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.
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 :)
Lots of free street parking for your car
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.
Smoking outdoors only.
In general, we just want you to relax, enjoy yourselves and take advantage of our close proximity to all things Boston. If you follow the simple rule of "leave things how you found them" all will be well - common sense stuff.
