You can stay in a self contained apartment of our Brooklyn Brownstone. The house was built in 1898 and has lots of beautiful original details. Our decked outdoor area (shared) is a wonderful place to relax. Free WiFi and Coffee included.
Ground floor apartment (not the basement) of our Brooklyn brownstone/townhouse. The house was built in 1898 and has lots of beautiful original details. Free WiFi included as well as Coffee/tea with a Keurig Platinum Brewing system.
Guests may also use our beautiful decked garden area with a bamboo wall, couches and an outdoor fireplace table. We live in the house upstairs and generally leave guests to themselves, but the garden is shared with us.
The apartment has one large bedroom with a Queen size bed and a twin size daybed that also has a trundle bed underneath. Both are beautiful Restoration Hardware furniture pieces. The small bedroom is really just for sleeping and has a twin size bed and another pull-out twin size bed trundle underneath. Please see photos.
For guests staying during the hot summer months (July/August), we have a standalone air conditioner in the main bedroom, but there is no AC in the small bedroom or the kitchen. It's generally just fine with the fans we have, but if you are very sensitive to heat and need the room cold, then this may not be the best place in the summer.
In the extension, there is also a treadmill if you like to run. We generally prefer to run in Prospect Park around the corner.
A few blocks to Prospect Park with beautiful walks, great for jogging or cycling. The Audubon Center is right there by the Lake with Boat Rides and many playgrounds for children. At the Prospect Park tennis center, there are always courts available by the hour. Prospect park also hosts the famous Drummers Circle and New York's large farmers market on weekends.
Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanical Garden, Brooklyn Zoo, and the Brooklyn Public Library are all within a 15 minute walk. 20 minutes by subway to Manhattan.
Children 10 and older are welcome.
