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.

The Neighborhood

A diverse, residential neighborhood with lots of families and trees. Paths to jog or walk on the beach, easy access to bike rental, food shopping, restaurants, and coffee shops. The neighborhood is old - people who come here, stay here. Large Victorian houses - two city parks - walk along the harbor. It is unexpectedly safe, actually. 10 minutes away is a local, breakfast spot McKenna's open at 5:30 and Savin Bar and Grille open for lunch and dinner till 11 or Midnight. About 20 minutes walk away are several restaurants - Indian, Chinese, Pizza, Vietnamese, Irish. Also 20 minutes walk is UMass Boston - with cafeterias, and the restaurant at the JFK Presidential Museum.

Getting Around

We are located an easy and pleasant 10 minute walk from the red line, providing easy access to all parts of the city, airport, Amtrak train, bus station, ferries to Cape Cod, and beyond. The Red Line operates from early morning till after midnight daily and later on the weekend.

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!
