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 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!

Mary's Ocean View room was exactly as described in the listing. The hosts were very welcoming and had made all arrangements for our arrival. There were muffins, granola, bread, a good coffee maker with sufficient pods and a fridge stacked with milk, juice, butter and jam giving us ample options for breakfast. All the shared bathrooms were in excellent condition and the accommodation in general was extremely clean. For me this is very important as I am allergic to house dust and I didn't have any problems! The Savin Hill Avenue neighbourhood was lovely! Would highly recommend this place for value for money and easy access to Downtown Boston as well as Boston airport as the train station is 8-10 minutes away by walk.

To be able to stay at the Carney Family's place is to be able to stay in a truly unique Boston neighborhood with history attached! Walking distance to the JFK library, easy route to Logan airport and close to subway lines. The home is very welcoming and the bits of advice given for travel were appreciated. Hope to stay here again in the future!

It's a nice room for a brief stay in Boston. The city centre is fairly easy to reach with the Metro. No major issues.

The Carney family's large and imposing house has been very well converted to a B&B and is a relaxed and comfortable environment to come back to after sightseeing in Boston. The Red line metro train station is 10 minutes easy walk away. Guests pretty well have the run of the house and an interesting library and plenty of comfortable places to read make it a great home-away-from-home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - which included meeting other guests from around the world.

This is a really cool house in a lovely area. The space is very clean and bright - a really nice place to stay! The red line is very accessible from the house, so easy to get downtown as needed. There are enough things to do and see around the Savin Hill area, too, including really good places to get breakfast. The Carneys seem very accommodating and helpful. They provide a lot of information upfront about practically any question you might've had, but also feel really open to talk to if you have any other questions. A really cool space with a really nice family!

Very easy host to work with. Communication prior to my arrival was very clear and I knew exactly how to get there and check in. I never met the hosts but had a great stay. And what they say about the muffins is true! Very nice stay.
