Perfect to unwind after a full day of sightseeing, great for commuting to Midtown, Columbia U, or downtown. Easy access by car to Hutch, I-95, X-County, 22 minutes from LGA, 40 min to JFK.

The space

Bright room with queen size bed, hard wood floors, three windows, two closets, dresser, ensuite sunroom with desk, second dresser, small fridge, kettle and space for luggage and to spread out. The sun-room has 270 degree views of the mature trees and gardens (see pictures). Hall bath private- not shared, with extra large shower.
Park-like setting on a granite hill with large oak trees overlooking the neighborhood, yet only minutes from the bustling heart of the Big Apple - by foot and train. The house was built for 'Jackrabbit' Johannsen of Nordic Skiing/Lake Placid and Olympics fame in 1910. He liked it because of the 'wilderness' around it.

Lovely house in a great location. Easy to get to from the Metro North train station, and within easy walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants. The rooms are clean and well-kept, and the hosts are helpful and friendly but not intrusive. Would definitely stay here again and have already recommended to friends.

Extraordinarily well located for anyone who wants either quick access to "the city" via the train or be in the village of Pelham. Pretty residential neighborhood but also walkable to restaurants, etc. Hosts very helpful, friendly and the accommodations clean and comfortable.

This is a perfect place for visitors! The house is a 3 minute walk from the train station into Manhattan and the local shopping street. Hosts are welcoming and thoughtful. Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Pelham! Very comfortable accommodations and fabulous hosts. We stayed for an extended time while moving from the city to a house in Westchester, and it was extremely convenient and comfortable. We could not have found better accommodations for our needs. We were surprised by the amount of space in the private room, bathroom, and bonus sunroom. A perfect, relaxing place to call "home" for a brief period. Wish we could have stayed for longer!

JP, Isabelle, Leo and Max are lovely!! Very charming and welcoming! I really enjoyed getting to know them! The house is beautiful and the room and bathroom were spotless and comfortable. The location is amazing for commuting to NYC- just across from the train and a short ride into Grand Central. It's also very quiet and peaceful. I really enjoyed my stay and would recommend it without hesitation!
