This listing is for 2 private bedrooms and a bathroom within a large, elegant single family home, adjacent to Yale campus. (It is not an "Entire House.") There are no cooking facilities.

This is a rare opportunity to stay in a historic home (on the National Registry.) Ask us for a tour and history of the home and the original owners if you are interested.

The space

Enjoy old-world luxury in a home that was built in 1910 to last for centuries. This architecturally designed home includes 4 fireplaces, an elegant entry hall and staircase, and many beautiful details. We are happy to walk guests through and give share the history of the house and its former occupants.

One bedroom includes a queen bed and the other a full/double bed. The rooms share a bathroom, with private access from each room. There is an alcove with a desk in one room.

Guest access

Guest will be given a key and may come and go as they please. They are welcome to store food in the refrigerator.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to meet new people, hear about their lives, and share advice about what to do in New Haven. These conversations are typically over coffee in the morning or when guests arrive and settle in. But we also respect people's privacy if they wish to be left alone.

Other things to note

This listing is for the use of 2 bedrooms and a bathroom in a large home. It is not the entire home or apartment. Due to the quirks of the Airbnb listing system, it is posted in the entire home/apt category in order to show that it includes two bedrooms.

There are two steps leading to the bathroom.

Jo and her husband Doron are gracious, friendly and interesting hosts. Theirs is a beautiful, lovingly tended home, with lush gardens and an interesting history, on a beautiful, quiet street. The rooms are comfortable, spacious, immaculate and full of character. We couldn't ask for more.

This AirBnB is adjacent to Yale campus, in a beautiful historic home. Both bedrooms overlook a walking path that goes directly to the Yale Divinity School in an approximately two minute walk. The shared connecting bathroom has a huge claw foot tub with shower. Each bedroom has a seating area with desk, and feels secluded and private from the rest of the house. Jo thoughtfully provides a tour upon check-in, and had a variety of coffees and teas available for the morning. There are quite a few steps to navigate, so anyone with mobility impairment may find this space challenging. But the home and rooms were absolutely charming, and perfectly met our needs. I'd absolutely stay here again if I return to New Haven!

We stayed at Jo's while helping our son move to New Haven. The place was great and Jo was very accommodating, even staying up late when our arrival was delayed. The location was so convenient -- a few blocks from Yale and nice places to grab a bite. When we return again to visit, we definitely want to stay at Jo's.

My husband and I have lived in New Haven for over 25 years. We stay here because we think it is a great little city, and we enjoy the local theater, art and community.

We travel abroad regularly, and enjoy having visitors to our home.
