About This Listing
Our Park Slope brownstone is next to Prospect Park and near subways, bars, shops, restaurants and more. You will have exclusive use of a floor with three spare bedrooms and a bathroom, where you will find comfort and privacy.
Our four story brownstone is on a quiet residential block. Although the house was built in the late 1800s, it is comfortable and cozy. There are two bedrooms with very comfortable full size beds and another one with a bunk bed. The room with the bunk bed also makes for a nice sitting room. All are on the same floor. Both bedrooms have closet and drawer space for you to use. We book only one guest or set of guests at a time. So, there will not be anyone other than you or your group sharing the guest space. There is a bathroom and shower that is exclusively for guests while they are here. So, we can pretty easily accommodate up to a family or group of six. If you have work to do, there is also an office on the top floor that is also a nice sitting room.
In addition to their private space, guests will have full access to the common areas of the house including the kitchen, dining room, living room and garden. We hope that guests will take what they want from the refrigerator and cupboard and make themselves at home. We have coffee, tea, breakfast and other items available for the guests.
Interaction with Guests
We look forward to meeting you, accommodating your needs and giving you privacy and space so that you have a productive and enjoyable visit. We are happy to help out with recommendations and arrangements.
The house is on 11th Street right near Prospect Park in the Park Slope Historic District. It is on the block that Time Out New York said is the 20th best block in NYC, and in the heart of Park Slope, which Money Magazine called the best neighborhood in NYC. There is plenty to enjoy in Brooklyn and it is a convenient subway ride to Manhattan. We are a quarter block from Prospect Park, where there are free concerts and other performances in the summer, playgrounds and ball fields, strolling paths, and a zoo, Audubon Center and year-round skating center. There are tons of great restaurants, shops, bars, coffee shops, bakeries, music venues and other attractions nearby. We are a few blocks from the New York City Marathon route. There are great farmers' markets every weekend. Attractions like the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, and Greenwood Cemetery are less than a mile away. The Brooklyn Academy of Music and the Barclay's Center are a couple of miles away. You can take the F train straight to Coney Island, DUMBO, the Brooklyn Bridge and there is lots more to explore in Brooklyn.
We are a couple of minutes from the F and G trains and a longer walk to other trains. There are lots of transfer options using those lines. There are nearby bus routes and car services. There is parking on the street (although it can sometimes be difficult to find a spot) and also two indoor garages within a block's distance. People from out of town arrive by all means -- car, train and cab. Some have taken the train from JFK airport. You can find the NYC subway map at (website hidden). Another good website for figuring out how to get around is (website hidden).
Other Things to Note
We have a cat and a dog. The dog is about fifty pounds and does not shed. They are both friendly and happy to have guests. We will have a free New York Times for you.
We are fully compliant with all applicable laws and regulations.
We ask that you act courteously and let us know if there is anything that we can do to meet any needs or to make your stay more comfortable, productive or enjoyable. We do not allow smoking on the premises. In addition, please do not eat meals in the bedrooms.
Linda et Jason ont été des hôtes fantastiques. Ma famille a séjourné dans leur très jolie maison, une brownstone très typique de Brooklyn et parfaitement située (à 1 minute de Prospect Park, à 2 des commerces et à 3 du métro dans une rue tranquille et agréable) pendant 5 jours. Ils y ont passé un très bon moment et ont pu profiter de New York dans les meilleures conditions. Le chien, bien que sourd, et le chat sont tous les deux adorables. Etant beaucoup sortis, nous n'avons pas eu l'occasion de beaucoup voir Jason et Linda mais nous avons quand même remarqué l'accueil très chaleureux qui nous a été réservé, Linda parlant même français! Une adresse à se remémorer pour tout séjour à New York. Merci encore
Linda and Jason are fabulous hosts. Their place is very cosy and comfortable, guests have their own bathroom and their own floor. It is a perfect home to stay in NYC, very close from the subway (20 minutes to Manhattan), the park and the shops. The neighborhood, Park Slope, is one of the best of Brooklyn and even of the whole city, very quiet and cute.
Both of them are very kind, full of good advices and really interesting people. They welcome you with fresh sheets and towels and you can help yourself in their fridge for breakfast. If you feel so, you are also able to cook in their nice kitchen. You will feel like home with them. They also have a nice deaf dog and a beautiful cat, both very friendly. We'll definitely try to come back for our next stay in Brooklyn and are so thankful for the wonderful time we had. Do not hesitate !
We had a fantastic stay at Linda and Jason's place. The brownstone is beautiful and is in a great location. Linda and Jason are very welcoming and friendly. We would stay with them again and recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Park Slope.
We enjoyed the stay and felt welcome by our hosts. We didn't have a lot of contact because we were out and about most of the time and until late at night.
The home is quite comfortable and the bed was great. The Brooklyn neighborhood was very nice, lots of stores, restaurants and friendly people.
We highly recommend this for someone looking for nice lodging a a nice home in a quiet and attractive neighborhood.

Linda and Jason were gracious, friendly, and helpful hosts. Their home is in a lovely neighborhood in Brooklyn, within a few yards of the spectacular Prospect Park, and only a couple of blocks from excellent shopping, eating, and drinking. It is also very convenient to the subway. For being so convenient, it is surprising quiet and comfortable. Plan for a most enjoyable visit.
Unfortunately I didn't get the chance to meet Linda, but Jason was extremely nice and very accommodating. Jason (and I'm sure Linda, too) is very relaxed with guests, so you don't feel like you're intruding. The house is beautiful and the beds are comfortable and you'll have everything you need for a nice stay, including very sweet pets. You'll be on the 3rd floor, so be prepared to lug baggage -- or pack light! The stairs are very creaky and you'll feel like you're waking people when you walk on them, but you'll get used to the creaking and it doesn't seem to bother Jason at all. My children and I were very comfortable in the 3 bedrooms. The neighborhood is residential and extremely pretty, with the subway a few minutes walking distance. The F train takes you to Manhattan in about 20 or 25 minutes. Prospect Park is right down the street from the house. We ate brunch at Dizzy's, around the corner. All in all, a very nice stay!
Staying at Linda's Park Slope Brownstone was wonderful experience. They are very near my son's apartment and that provided great convenience. The room was on a floor of it's own with a bath right next to it. Everything was clean and the place was interesting. Right near Prospect Park if you want to get a respite from the urban.
We enjoyed a wonderful trip down "Memory Lane" in Park Slope. The frigid weather could not deter us! The warmth and kindness of Linda and Jason, along with their beautiful accommodations
warrant a return visit. We look forward to it
About the Host, Linda
We are a married couple with two girls away at college. So we have some empty rooms. In fact, an entire floor. Additionally, we have a fat cat and a sweet old dog. We are not home much. We are relaxed and happy to have folks enjoy our home and neighborhood. We love Brooklyn. It is an oasis in a big metropolitan area. We enjoy running and biking in Prospect Park. We enjoy yoga and exercise classes at the local YMCA. We enjoy going to delicious local restaurants and exploring the city. The best family vacation we have taken was a hut to hut hiking trip in Iceland.
