Cozy room in a nicely decorated house, with friendly hosts and affectionate pets, centrally located, in a safe neighborhood near delicious eateries. Perfect for visiting interns or short-term travelers to Hartford looking for a real-home feel.
We have ONE GUEST ROOM available for rent in our three-bedroom house, which is centrally located in West Hartford, on main bus line. It has a queen-size futon, a night table, three-drawer dresser and closet space. This bedroom has two luminous windows, facing the backyard and is located next to the (shared) bathroom.
Besides the guest room and the shared bathroom, the other spaces guests have access to are: a large kitchen, dining-room, living-room (and backyard when weather allows).
Parking is available on the long driveway overnight (and off street parking during daytime).
Washer/dryer are available on premises.
We are a mid-thirties couple affiliated with local universities so our schedules are usually flexible, and we enjoy spending time at home on weekends. We both have traveled around the world so we have many stories to share, but also appreciate and respect quiet time to rest during your stay. We are healthy, non-smoking and will ask that if you smoke, you do so outside the house.
Our family are our pets: we have a large breed, well-behaved coonhound dog who is generally quiet (only stays downstairs). His size might intimidate some people but he is 100 pounds of pure affection. We also have an extremely sociable 'tuxedo' cat that loves to follow people around the house.
We love our neighborhood for the variety of cuisines available within walking distance of Park Road:
- Less than 3' walk there is Quaker Diner, Joey's Pizza, A.C. Petersen, J.René Coffee Roasters, Hearty Kitchen, Pho Vietnam, I Love Sushi, Sweet Chili (Thai).
- Within 6-8 minutes walk there is Chengdu, Plan B Burger Bar, Taqueria Tavern, Los Adobes (Mexican).
- The house is located a mile/10 blocks away from West Hartford's Blue Back Square, which is around 20 minutes by foot, and offers access to Whole Foods, seasonal farmer's markets, and over 25 restaurants and eateries.
Some other locations (distances by car):

Natacha and Mike were very welcoming. They helped us a lot during our arrival to the USA. We'll keep of very good memories.
Natacha and Mike were great hosts, both had very interesting backgrounds and experiences to share. The room was in a convenient location, very clean, everything was provided. Would definitely recommend!
Natacha could not have been more accommodating about my need for a room on short notice. Her home is lovely and it is, indeed, a cozy bedroom. She was a thoughtful , interesting and engaging host.
Spent one night, the animals are very friendly!
Quiet place convenient to Hartford Convention center. Very friendly couple that gave me a great place to eat right down the road! Nice stay!
Natacha and her partner were both very friendly and hospitable. They live in a lovely house in a quiet neighborhood. I appreciated how they accommodated my early check-in when no one was home. I would definitely like to stay here again if I ever come back to West Hartford!
Natacha has a very sweet place - it's clean, nice accommodations, very easy communication - I will definitely stay here again next time I come to town. Natacha and her boyfriend are perfect hosts - you will feel right at home here.
Natacha and Michael were great ! Very welcoming and helpful. It was a pleasure to meet them and have a chat. Their dog is a real sweetheart.
Natacha is welcoming and the room is clean and comfortable. Natacha's home is very close to West Hartford Center, as well as to Hartford. My stay (while brief) was very nice.
Natacha and Mike were really great hosts, having no issues with our late arrival. Their house is very cozy, clean and comfortable, not to mention free parking and variety of morning snacks and coffee. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed not only by the hosts, but also their super-friendly cat who tends to stay with you all the time and their big happy puppy. Definitely recommended!
