How Can I Keep My Boston Fern Through the Winter

How can I keep Boston ferns through the winter since I don't have room in my home for it. Someone said I could cut it back and keep it in the basement and let it go dorment for the winter and it will come back out in the spring. How much would I trim it in order to do this?
