Spacious room with a queen size bed and an ottoman that opens up to a single bed. This room comes with a shared bathroom. The windows face the street and overlook the yard. You can walk through our back yard to Boston's version of Malibu Beach.

The space

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.

Guest access

Enjoy the fresh fruit in the bowl on the kitchen table, the orange juice, english muffins, yogurt, and Mary's homemade granola. Barney makes great coffee early in the morning, as well as a fresh batch of his signature muffins!
You will have full kitchen to make meals, 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.

Interaction with guests

We interact with guests when we are around, which is usually in the evenings. Conversation, guidance about Boston and New England. We are available to greet and facilitate our guests' visits; we can be around as much, or as little, as needed. We will provide detailed directions to access the house if guests arrive when we are not at home.

Other things to note

You can walk out of the back yard to Dorchester Bay and the beach. The harbor walk bike path starts there and goes on for miles. Enjoy the fresh fruit, orange juice, english muffins, and yogurts in the morning or anytime. Barney makes great coffee in the morning as well as his signature muffins! All guests have access to a full kitchen for cooking and/or enjoying meals. Feel free to play the piano; we love music in the house!

What a great place to spend a few days! Fascinating house, fantastic location, and comfortable bed. The walk to the T is easy from the house. I wish we had more days to explore the neighborhood.

What a magnificent home! It was impeccably clean, bright and charming. We enjoyed waking up to John’s fresh muffins and sitting on the back porch while sipping our coffee each morning.. such a serene atmosphere. Even though we shared a bathroom and kitchen with others, we felt that we had more than enough privacy. We drove, so we were only 10 minutes from Boston which was fantastic! Also, our hosts made us feel welcomed and thoroughly communicated the house guidelines. We would absolutely recommend the Carney’s home to everyone, and we can’t wait to visit again.

The Carney family were wonderful hosts- so warm and welcoming! Barney patiently answered our many questions about where to go and what restaurants to try during our stay in Boston. Our room was very comfortable and spacious. Barney's muffins and Mary's granola were delicious! Coffee and tea were available all day. Barney's home is conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood just a short walk from the T which takes you anywhere you want to go in Boston. I would highly recommend Barney's home to anyone visiting Boston! You will feel like part of the Carney family!

The Carney family took excellent care of us from reservation through checkout. Barney contacted us personally to make sure directions were clear and gave lots of helpful tips. The Carney home was comfortable and so welcoming! We will absolutely try to stay here again!

Mary and Barney Carney live here in the Savin Hill neighborhood of Boston. As a family of 6, we've lived in this house for about 27 years, Robert, who's 19, Andrea, who's 31, and John and Grace who are 20 year old twins. are also here from time to time.

We're Bostonians and New Englanders from birth; we spend time here, in Provincetown and in Vermont. We don't have much spare time because Mary and Barney work full time, in higher education and computing. All four of our children have gone to the oldest school in the United States, Boston Latin School. We're all involved in community activities, mostly music - choirs, bands and the like, some politics and some church, and many other kinds of activities.

We live in what may be the most diverse square mile in Boston - people of every model and make. We've always had people living with us; we've sponsored refugees and had guests from around the world. There are lively discussions and debates about everything from quantum mechanics to driving habits, from living to dying, from rock climbing to meditation.
