About

Stoney's Inn, a little B&B with a whole lotta love, is located in beautiful "Landmark" Brownstone Brooklyn on a street lined with trees, yet a few feet away from lively 7th Avenue, with cafes and stores galore. The fully furnished, light filled studio apartment has all that you need to feel exceptionally comfortable and at home. The apartment has its own kitchen and bathroom with shower. There is a lovely backyard to relax in after a long day in the city and short (20 minute) train ride home. Children very welcome!

Beautiful B and B in Park Slope

4.6 on August 01, 2018

First let me say that Marla and Scott are charming hosts; kind, caring, so considerate, and very welcoming. Scott always responded to my texts promptly which I so appreciated. The property is everything that the B and B site described. A beautifully appointed studio with a very comfy bed and pillows; nice bathroom with plenty of towels and a shower with great water pressure; comfortably air conditioned which we were thrilled about as the weather was hot and humid during our visit. The neighborhood is lively with boutiques, restaurants, and a diverse community. The location is perfect for us as our 2 adult children live a short walk away in either direction. Finally, the price was right; a great big bang for the buck. Not only do we strongly recommend staying at Stoney’s Inn, we’ll be returning soon. Thank you Scott and Marla! Lenore and Jim, two very satisfied guests!

Great place and fantastic location

4.6 on May 18, 2018

Our hosts were totally accommodating and offered helpful suggestions. We absolutely loved the neighborhood, close to Prospect Park and lots of shopping and eating. Our only regret is that our stay was so short. We'd definitely stay there again when in Brooklyn!

like staying with an old friend

we just had a wonderful 3 night stay and didn't want to leave... the best part about the place is hands down the owners, Scott and Marla and their family make it such a comfortable place to come back to each night. from the beautifully appointed apartment with the cozy bed, fully equipped kitchen, and bathroom, to the birds singing in the morning, and then there's the fresh bagels, croissants and muffins with fresh fruit every morning! could not have been more perfect! thanks guys!! xo


Home away from home

We really enjoyed our stay at Stoney's Inn. The location was perfect. The neighborhood was charming with residential on the side off main 7th Ave, which has two subway stations nearby. We could go anywhere easily and come back feeling safe. We spent a couple of hours of our last night at Brooklyn Bridge Park enjoying the best night view of Manhattan. Scott and his son Jessie helped us solved a couple of the problems and made our stay comfortable. Scott delivers fresh bagels (the best in NYC) very morning. He also stock the refrigerator with fruits, juice, milk and snacks. The bed was made and the room was cleaned every other day. Staying at Stonely's Inn was a great choice for our trip.


Remarkable Value

Unlike many other inns, this is a single garden apartment with a semi-private entrance off the street and access to the quiet back yard. The proprietor lives above and is totally intent on meeting your needs. They stocked the refrigerator with every food we mentioned in response to their inquiry email. The space is ample, with a desk, comfortable chairs, very nice bathroom, and fully equipped kitchen. The location was perfect for us, the neighborhood peaceful and beautiful. We look forward to going again!


Perfect place in Brooklyn!

We spent 10 nights at Stoney's Inn in September and we would have been able to spent 100 more! We enjoyed the room, the backyard, the neighborhood and specially the details from Marla and Scott. For sure we will come back. Jordi & Mari


Absolut empfehlenswert!

Me and my girlfriend stayed 5 nights at Stoney`s Inn. We enjoyed it very much. Due to the outstanding reviews below, our expectation was very high. But Stoney`s Inn lives up to these promises without any difficulties. I can verify every single detail. A big thank you to the Innkeepers and there family for being an important part of our perfectly wonderful city break.


5 days in Brooklyn

4.8 on July 19, 2009

My son and I were made to feel very welcome - with plenty of (unobtrusive) support available. Our basement apartment was fantastic and staying in Brooklyn was great - an interesting place in itself (e.g. the cafes/restaurants and the amazing Prospect Park) and a calm and relaxing counterpoint to busy Manhattan. Travelling to Manhattan was easy - a short walk to a subway station then 30 minutes to Times Square. We'd stay here again.


Expect the unexpected

Please don't stay here or it may soon become impossible for me to return !!! Seriously though, coming from New Zealand and staying 10 days at Stoney’s was one of those truly unique, unexpected travelling experiences. It wasn’t so much the very private apartment, the safe, quiet, friendly area, the usual New York attractions or even the awesome local pizza. It was staying with these big-hearted people. These quality people quite simply bring love to absolutely everything they do and these days I find that to be something quite rare. Graham Hennessy, Christchurch, New Zealand

From the first day we arrived at the Stoney's Inn we knew it would be sad to leave. Everything was fantastic, especially knowing Gail. We hope to return soon. Leti & Ferran.

Innkeeper Response
FYI, Gail is a good friend who stays at our place and takes care of the B&B when we are away on vacation! Thanks Gail!
