Stinson House


First appearance

The Stinson House is Barney and James Stinson's childhood home and where Loretta Stinson lived.


In The Stinsons, Barney is seen skipping out hitting on some hot girl because he tells everyone he has to go somewhere, but he is secretive about where. The gang becomes suspicious that Barney might have a secret girlfriend, so they follow him to what turns out to be the house of his mother, Loretta. Barney then reveals that he has a wife, Betty, and a son, Tyler. Barney then tells the gang that they are both actors he hired because his mom was dying and he thought it would make her happy to think he was married. When his mother recovered, Barney was stuck with the fake family.

In Cleaning House, Barney is with the gang at MacLaren's Pub's telling another story of romantic conquest when he suddenly breaks down in tears. He explains that his mother is moving out of his childhood home. Barney then tells the gang that they will be helping him move it all over the next two days. Despite their protests, they show up, meeting Barney's mother, Loretta, and brother, James at the house in Staten Island.

While the gang goes through Barney's childhood room, they find evidence of a lonely childhood, which was all covered up by Loretta's elaborate lies.
