Excellent New York City Starting Point

4.0 on January 19, 2010

The owners were very helpful but allowed us our own space. The location was excellent. We walked to the Staten Island Ferry (about four blocks) and took the bus at night for safety reasons and it is up hill. The room and bathroom were very clean.


spacious, calm and elgant rooms

we chose to stay here because we loved the look of the rooms, the furniture and the bathrooms. As we suspected it is an artistic, elegant and spacious place. Together with the boat ride from Manhattan it offers peace and calm after a long day exploring the city. Paul was very accommodating too when we had an extra guest - and it was great to see his paintings for real.


Perfect for NYC visit

4.4 on June 24, 2009

We decided to try this B&B because we figured this is the best location for staging our trip to NYC, since we could park the car here and walk a few minutes to the Staten Island Ferry, and we were very pleased with our choice. Our room was very large, comfortably furnished, bright with daylight from windows all around, and everything was very clean. The owner was extremely solicitous to determine our needs and never intruded, and we could come and go as we pleased. It's hard to imagine any better accommodations for these prices. When you cost out your trip, don't forget to weigh the free parking at the B&B and free ferry to Manhattan, one of the most scenic, exciting ferry rides anywhere in the world, with spectacular views of Ellis Island, Statue of Liberty, Manhattan skyline. You could save a hundred dollars a day in parking, valet, transit and tolls. This B&B was well-kept and clean. the breakfast was light as you'd expect and of good quality. Ours was served waiting for us in our private dining alcove beside our bedroom, and we had sole use of a small refrigerator and bathroom with clawfoot tub. Be sure to ask the owner to explain the bathroom arrangements. They were comfortable and good but our "private bathroom" was down a short hall next to another bedroom which was unoccupied - voila, our "private bathroom." Not exactly as expected but just perfect. We would not hesitate to stay here again. We truly enjoyed our stay and the owner seemed a kind, interesting, generous fellow, a furniture designer and maker with some interesting pieces on view around the house.
