Third floor (No Elevator!) room with 2 bathrooms that are shared. This room has 2 twin beds and the option of a convertible twin for a 3rd guest. Central AC, Kitchen, Laundry. 10 minute walk to the train.

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 for guests who 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!

We stayed in the Carney home on the last leg of our NE trip, and it was the perfect ending to a busy vacation. The home is incredible, unique, clean, and in a great location. We were given very detailed directions that made check in a breeze. Our room included bay windows with views of the harbor, there was ample off-street parking, and the breakfast goodies in the morning were delicious. We truly felt as if we were at a bed and breakfast, unlike some other air"bnb's" that we've stayed in. We took an uber into the city for a Red Sox game, and it was about $20, which we thought was very reasonable and a lot more convenient than trying to find parking. The airport and other touristy attractions were also easily accessible from the home. We truly enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend the Carney home to anyone looking for a relaxing and quiet place to stay while visiting Boston. We'd book again for sure!
