Description

The Space

You will not believe your eyes when you step in to this historic house just steps from Midtown Manhattan. Enjoy the peace & tranquility of a country home right in the middle of the fastest City in the world. Situated just one stop from Manhattan in Dutch Kills, Long Island City, sits a lovely little house that we call The Chalet. Built in the early 20th Century, this frame house would be like an old story book cottage if it weren't so close to the city. There are 2 bedrooms on the 2nd floor to accommodate a large group. There is also a finished basement that is perfect for pajama parties! There are accommodations for infants also, so just let us know. All of the bedrooms are on the second floor with a full bathroom to use. The main floor has a full kitchen with a family size refrigerator. So if you plan on staying for a while, fill up the fridge. There is a dining table that can easily accommodate a large group (six chairs, but can be extended to hold 10). The living room is comfy and cozy and you will always have lots of natural light beaming in through the windows. If you need another room, there is another one on the main floor. It has many options for its use, so let us know and we can prepare it for you. There is a garden in the front where you can sit under the apple tree and feel safe and comfortable all night long. Right in front of our gate is the bike path to cross over into Manhattan so if you like to ride bikes. Our block is quiet and you will never be bothered by traffic going by. Our Cottage is set back 75 feet from the curb and feels so secluded. If you like to entertain you will have no problem doing it at The Cottage or in the Garden. You can BBQ or relax next to the chiminea. This house is not our primary residence so rest assure, the house is all yours while you stay. AMENITIES: - Chef's Stainless Steele Appliances - Microwave - Coffee Maker - Pots, pans, plates, glasses, all kitchenware - Dishwasher - Washer/dryer - Free high speed WiFi - Smart TV - Cable 240+ channels - Fresh, fluffy towels - Fresh, crisp linen - Central Air conditioning - Central Heat - Iron - Ironing Board

Interaction with Guests

We are very easy going and we leave the interaction up to you. We like to make ourselves available but we have found that most New York visitors have very specific interests and reasons for coming to the greatest city in the world and we want to give you the freedom to explore and make this city your own.

The Neighborhood

This area is called Dutch Kills, a small neighborhood right in between Astoria and Long Island City, two very popular destinations for cafes and restaurants. So the house is within walking distance (as short as 5 minutes) to local restaurants and bars. We also have 3 very famous galleries within walking distance, Fisher Landau Center for Art, Flux Factory and PS1, which is part of the Modern Museum of Art (MoMa). Since this area is so close to Queensboro Bridge, the main transportation hub of Queens, this has traditionally been a place for back businesses supplying Manhattan with bread, truffles, silk, etc. But over the last 10 years, artists have taken over these warehouse spaces and made them into work/live loft studios. It’s a very interesting area and I think you will be very pleased.

Getting Around

The neighborhood Dutch Kills is very safe, only 3 blocks from the N and Q subway station, which is 2 stops from Lexington Ave in midtown Manhattan. Queens and Queensborough Plaza stations (which provide the N, Q, 7, E, M, and R trains) are also a 5 minute walk away. Or if you'd rather drive, walk or bike, the 59th Street bridge is just a few short blocks away.

Other Things to Note

You will have access to the Entire House, all three levels of the house, the outdoor garden and the driveway where you can park a car or a van. There is also a finished basement that is perfect for pajama parties!

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
