Nous sommes un couple de la trentaine et nous voulions nous imprégner de la vie New-Yorkaise et ce fut un vrai régal. Le propriétaire est vraiment extra, l'accueil à notre arrivée juste parfait avec petit pot et renseignement sur l'énorme arrondissement de Brooklyn. En plus, un aspect non négligeable pour les hésitants en anglais comme nous, le propriétaire parle un Français plus que correct. Nous logions dans la chambre Osborne très spacieuse avec un lit immense et douillé et une belle vue sur le quartier comme dans les films. A recommander le petit déjeuner qui est exquis et avec des produits frais ( le 1er jour du pain perdu fait comme ma grand-mère)... !! La maison se trouve à 5 mins à pied de la station Prospect Park et ensuite à 20 mins de Manhattan d'un côté et 20 mins de Coney Island Beach de l'autre, situation idéale. En un mot, nous recommandons vivement cette demeure. Arno ( 40 ).

Stayed in the Osborne Room. Comfortable KS bed; shared large, airy bath. Very clean everywhere. Staff and innkeeper pleasant and helpful. Optional ($10) breakfast different each day; invariably well-prepared. Easy access to Flatbush Ave bus and to subway. Needs a reading lamp. In all other respects a model of its kind; would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at Leffert's Clermont place and were very pleased with it. Nice roomy bedroom, large well-equipped kitchen. Temperature was a little high but owner says he can lower the thermostat next time. We were very pleased and recommend this place.

I recently stayed in the Lafayette apartment affiliated with Lefferts Manor. I was nervous about leaving the predictability of a hotel on a recent NYC visit. I need not have worried! It was a better experience than a hotel and very affordable. The apartment we used had two sleeping areas, kitchen, laundry, and bathroom. Nice towels and soap. The location in Fort Green couldn't have been better. Park and sidewalks for walking, nice neighborhood for dining and shopping, and very close to subway for going into town. (the apartment is in Brooklyn.) The feel of the neighborhood is really one of the best parts of the stay. Don't hesitate to book with this group. You will be in good hands. Have a great stay!

A peine rentrée, que je veux absolument partager mon bonheur d'avoir résidé dans ce lieu fantastique. Marc est un hôte qui sait recevoir. On se sent tout de suite à l'aise, il est disponible, chaleureux sans jamais être envahissant. Il a vraiment le désir de bien faire.De plus, il parle très bien français! Tout est propre et décoré avec goût.Literie très confortable. Ne râtez pas le petit déjeuner, il change chaque jour et est préparé avec soin et avec de bons produits, beaucoup de choses biologiques ou venant des meilleures maisons. Je ne savais pas par exemple que des donuts pouvaient être aussi fins! C'est aussi un grand moment de convivialité. Ordinateur à disposition. La station de métro est à moins de cinq minutes à pied, on est à 20 minutes en métro de Manhattan et le coin est sûr, même la nuit. Bref je ne peux que conseiller vivement cette adresse.
