New York City, New York
Your own private Harlem hideaway. A quiet dreamy oasis for your busy New York trip. Enjoy life in an 1895 brownstone in one of the city's most charming historic neighborhoods.

Enter from the front stoop through the ornate carved wood entry arch and you will feel like you have just stepped back 100 years in time. All original oak details which show the charm of gently worn history. Go straight ahead up the carpeted stairs to the top floor to your own private huge room.

The Guest Room is located on the top (3rd) floor of the building. There are no other bedrooms on that floor. It is the only unit rented as a room, rather than a separate apartment. However, many guests prefer this room over the others, as it has its own attributes which makes it special. Its charming retro feel will definitely make your stay in New York special.

We had the best time staying at Dennis' place. It's a great room in a great building - beautifully decorated, absolutely immaculate, and lovely touches everywhere you look. The location's spot on for exploring New York - you can walk to Central Park in minutes, it took us less than half an hour on the Subway to get to Brooklyn,...

A perfect location if you want to feel part of a vibrant, close-knit community while still being near all of New York's attractions. A spacious and thoughtfully decorated guest room where you can relax after a long day of seeing the sights. Or if you want a bit of excitement there is plenty to see and do in Harlem, like...
