About this listing
This is a bright and spacious room on the top floor of a beautiful brownstone on a tree-lined residential block in Park Slope. It is in the heart of Brooklyn's cultural center and yet only a short subway ride to Manhattan. The best of both worlds.
This is a quiet room with private bath that overlooks a huge backyard. Windows on two sides make it especially light and airy. The room is large (13'x16') and has a queen bed, ample work space, a comfortable upholstered chair and lots of closet space. It has a mini-fridge, teapot,coffeemaker and microwave. The room is listed for double occupancy, but it is adjacent to another, smaller room with a twin bed that can accommodate another guest for an additional $40/night. (See Room #2.) Ideal for a small family or close friends. (Altogether, there are four bedrooms on this unoccupied floor. Use of the other rooms may be negotiated for a larger group or family.) We book only one guest or group at a time, so you will have the private bath to yourselves.
The top floor is the guest floor. It is very private and roomy. From time to time there may be a family guest staying in one of the other rooms, but most of the time no one else passes through. And to get there, you don't have to pass through anyone else's living space. (The top floor is two flights up, not too bad, but it may not be ideal for people with knee problems.) There is a button lock on the bathroom door, but the bedrooms do not have locks.
Interaction with guests
I live in the house (on the 2nd and 3rd floor)
and will be available with help or suggestions if needed.
Sorry, there's no smoking in or on the property. And since we've got some pets of our own, we can't take on any more.
If you're planning on having a guest, please let me know.

I have lived in Brooklyn, NY for 30 years and have three grown children. I am a retired public gardener and an avid urban farmer. (We have a beehive, vegetable beds, fruit trees and three chickens!) I teach adult literacy at the Brooklyn Central Library. I love to travel -- most recently to SE Asia and Oaxaca, Mexico -- but am always happy to come home to New York's best borough -- Brooklyn.
