How did your host make you feel welcome? Ellen's public spaces were clean and attractive. Ellen provided a folding table in my room so that I could work and she cleared a shelf in her refrigerator for my food but I needed to clean the room I was given to stay in after my assessment of the room the next day after my late arrival the night before.
Was the description accurate? Yes, in the Airbnb TERMS OF SERVICE there is no obligation for a host to provide clean accommodations.
What was the neighborhood like? Safe, it was a residential area.
Ellen fue muy amable con la información para llegar a la casa. Una vez ahí nos alojó en una habitación que no sale en las fotos (de color morado, lila). Jamás en mi vida hemos estado en una habitación más sucia. Polvo por todos sitios, desorden, basura. La cama extremadamente incómoda y sucia. Una experiencia para no recomendar a nadie.Equivocó nuestra reserva (era para 3 personas) y alojó a nuestro hijo en la habitación de su hija, extremadamente fría, sucia y desordenada. Cerca del tren, pero a más de 40 minutos de ningún lugar donde tomar un café. Se agradecería al menos un café en la mañana.
Ellen was very kind showing us the way to arrive to her house and even driving us to Dobbs Ferry the first day. Once there we were in a room that you can´t see in the photos (is a purple room) The most dirty place we have ever been. Jus a horrible experience. Close to the train (3 minutes walk) but more than 40 minutes to the first place you can have a coffee, It would be nice have at least one coffee in the house.
The Frida room was so pretty and cozy. I felt very comfortable. Ellen was super welcoming and made my mother and I feel at home. The location is convenient as it is very close to the train station. I would absolutely stay here again. Thanks Ellen!
Ellen took me on very short notice and worked with my schedule to allow me to get in to the house when I needed to. I didn't meet her until right before I was leaving on day 3 which was fine. I think there was a train station right by the house but I didn't know about it until the last day. I only knew 'Yonkers' so I got off the train station and walked with my luggage for 3 miles! Next time I know to ask what the closest train station is.
Something I have decided based on the last two places I have stayed, is to ask if there is a lock on the bedroom door and bathroom door. This is nothing against Ellen but rather something I want any time I stay at an Air BnB. I didn't know who was in the house and at one point did see a man walk out of the bathroom. There were no locks so I didn't feel comfortable in the shower or while sleeping. It will be something I will ask each host so that I can sleep more soundly. I ended up putting the ironing board in front of the bedroom door so I could hear if someone came in. Again, this is nothing against Ellen, more just general feedback of what I will look for.
Our stay with Ellen was absolutely wonderful! Her home is gorgeous and the view of the Hudson River was stunning, especially with the fall foliage. Ellen was very friendly and was easy to contact during our travels. I was greatly appreciative for the use of her kitchen to prepare meals. The bedroom and bathroom was clean and ready for our arrival. It was fun conversating with her and the other guests. Ellen was very knowledgeable and helpful regarding navigation and train info. Perfect location, and conveniently situated by the train. We came and went as we pleased. I was fortunate to get parking in front of her home. The hillside parking could be a challenge for some. We will definitely return to this airbnb! Wonderful, clean & brightly accented accommodation. Ellen (& her daughter, Rachel) were delightfully pleasant hostesses. Thank you for sharing your home with us! Until next time......Heidi & Vic.
The place is exactly like in the photos. Very easy access to Manhattan via Metro North from the Greystone station. A large kitchen for those who love to cook. I enjoyed it. And one can have a nice chat over tea with Ellen if she is not too busy during your stay. Last but not the the least there is a small kids park just down the road.
I had a wonderful stay with Ellen! She made me feel most welcome and was very accommodating; let me use the fridge, etc. I would definitely recommend it to anyone!
I had a wonderful time at Ellen's who's a wonderful and fun hostess. The house is bright and spacious with a great view on the Hudson River. I felt at home and was really enthusiastic to discover this special spot in NY's suburb.
Train distance from Tarrytown where I had my yoga training at Riverstone yoga (also highly recommended). Special!
Ellen ist eine wunderbare Gastgeberin, herzlich , offen und sehr hilfsbereit.
Das Haus ist wunderschön, der Blick auf den Hudson River ein Traum.
Die Lage ist auch sehr gut, um Manhattan zu besichtigen, da der Zug fast vor dem Haus liegt und nur 40 Minuten zur Grand central braucht.
Nur zu empfehlen. Top!
I loved staying here! It's a beautiful home in a peaceful spot, up on a hill with a view of the river and surrounded by trees. Ellen is very warm and accommodating. I felt an instant connection with her, and we parted as if we'd been friends for a long time.
Unfortunately we never met in person. Anyway it was good communication. Very competent guest and we have found the flat back in a very good condition.
she is a very nice respectful woman and if you host her you will see what i mean i recommend her
she is airbnb host as well
It was a big pleasure to host Ellen for two days. She is a very sweet person. I will love to host her again! The best recommendation from me!!!
Ellen was a wonderful guest, very pleasant and outgoing. Communicated very well before arriving. It was a delight to have her as a guest.
Ellen var en sprudlande glad gäst, jag tyckte om hennes närvara här hos mig, Ellen var positiv och ville utforska allt om Stockholm, jag ser Ellen som en återvändande gäst hos mig.
great guest. no problems at all.
I have known Marion for over 20 years. She has been a friend of the family for that long. I recently stayed at her and Ellen's lovely, warm home with my two young adult kids, one of whom lives in New Haven and the other traveled with me from California. My son's girlfriend also joined us from NYC.
I knew that we would have a great time at Marion's place, since (as other attest) she is the consummate hostess. Ellen is also so lovely, warm and welcoming. There were two other absolutely delightful guests in the house at the same time. They just added to the interest, fun and diversity of our experience.
The home is beautiful, with lovely walking paths all around and a gorgeous view of the Hudson River. They know all the best places to shop, see, visit. You have everything you need, and you feel so comfortable in their home.
You will not be disappointed with this choice! Truly unique, very warm and welcoming.
