You can walk through our back yard to Boston's version of Malibu Beach. There are nearby parks, the walk to the Red Line is 10 minutes then 15 minutes to downtown, 25 minutes to Cambridge. We have ample off street parking.
We live in an 18 room 160 year old house that was once occupied by just one family! Barney has lived here all of his life, our 4 children grew up here, and we like the combination of a small town dynamic, living on the beach, and still be 20 minutes from the center of the city.
Enjoy the fresh fruit in the bowl on the kitchen table, the orange juice, cider and individual yogurts in the refrigerator. There is a selection of teas in the upper cabinet at the far left of the sink. Barney makes great coffee early in the morning, and will leave a filled carafe on the counter under the microwave each morning - as well as a fresh batch of his signature muffins!
You will have full Kitchen to make meals, Ample Unblocked Parking in two driveways, Back Porch for Outdoor Meals and Lounging. Back yard for relaxing. Laundry room. Baby Grand Piano on the second floor that you are welcome to play.

Would have been nice if they'd refunded even 1 night, since i was sick and gave them more than 24 hours notice I had to leave. Instead they ignored me.
We loved and enjoyed our stay here .the room was very comfortable and spacious.The house is very posh and classy. The carneys have spared nothing to make our stay more enjoyable. They accomodated us with everything we need . The neighbourhood is very safe and close to the subway . Also the house is close to this beautiful lake which is a wonderful place for hiking and enjoying nature. We recommend this place it is one of the best things about boston. We will definitely come back !
From the moment we arrived (much later than anticipated in the evening), Barney made us feel like family and not only greeted us kindly, but with a full history of the house and the area. You can see the pride with which he cares for his house.
Every room feels private, spacious and clean. It is just like staying in a top-notch B & B, but at a reasonable price Every last detail was accounted for, including the bath robes, slippers and water glasses in the room. Barney's promise of homemade muffins and orange juice was met and we lingered in the bright, open kitchen in the morning to enjoy them.
What a treat to stay here!!! We will definitely come back every time we are in the area.
Thank you for such a wonderful stay.

The Carney's home is comfortable and inviting. Close walk to the T in an interesting neighborhood near the shore. Very safe and a super-easy commute to downtown and Cambridge.
My boyfriend and I were visiting Boston for the 1st time and we loved our stay with the Carney Family. Barney and Mary were warm and welcoming hosts. The room we stayed in was spacious and the kitchen and bathroom were very clean. The robes and slippers were a great touch. And the muffins and coffee were perfect! For an added bonus the T station was an only short walk away. We had a fantastic stay and would definitely come back the next time we're in Boston. Thanks Carney Family!
You travel for 6/7000km and you ain't mind about finding a piece of your home like I've done.
Carney family is the real american family with the bigest care I've ever met from unknown persons.
They are all so sweet and kind. Be prepared for a hard settle...leave or staing there.
I'll wait for good news from "The carnivores" debut LP
All my best wishes you're wonderfull :-) big hug from Italy.
Carney family are very nice during our stay. John, the son greet us and introduce the room and facilities. We met Barney later that he provides some good suggestion of exploring Boston. We also had some interesting conversation with Barney and the other guests.
Barney baked muffins for the guests everyday that is a nice touch! Barney and Mary are very helpful during our stay. Karen, the neighbor who helps the house, is also very friendly and helpful.
The bedroom and bathroom are clean and comfortable. It is also very thoughtful to have some extra towels in the bathroom for people to use. The location is convenient which is about 10 mins walk from the subway station.
Overall I recommend this place for visitors to stay. You will have a good time in Boston.
We enjoyed our stay very much! The Carneys were really nice and we'd stay with anytime again.
My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay with the Carney Family. Mr. Carney provided all the information that we needed about riding the Red Line Train to Boston and nearby Harvard. The Carney home is located within walking distance of the Red Line so we parked the car and didn't use it until we left.
The Carney house is a magnificent place to stay. The house is on a tree lined street of similiar houses and seems like an idyllic New England scene. Our room was excellent and included the use of a shared little sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and laundry. Mary was very welcoming to us when we arrived and was helpful in answering questions about our trip into downtown Boston. The house is so convenient to the T line and we left our car there to avoid having to drive into downtown. We left early on our checkout day so didn't get a chance to have the famous muffins. i hope we will stay there again as it was a great experience.
