The Space

You will have peace and quiet in a sun-filled house and private room that overlooks the backyard/garden area of the house. Room is also used for meditation and has good vibes. The house is small so just saying that quiet tones of voice are very much appreciated late at night. I welcome seasoned travelers and students, anyone who is curious and wants to have an interesting experience while they pass through our town.

Guest Access

You have access to the kitchen, dining room, living room and bathrooms. Nice yard with garden and firepit for bonfire nights in cool weather. Coffee and tea provided.

Interaction with Guests

I really enjoy meeting people and have been renting out space in my home for 20 years since I lived in Memphis, Tennessee and then New York City. Am always open for conversation or glass of wine, tea or plain ol' water!

The Neighborhood

Cozy house situated in the historic area of Fair Haven right on the banks of the Quinnipiac River. Old fashioned neighborhood, where community comes first. I love this neighborhood for so many reasons and I hope you do too. It's unlike any other area in New Haven.

Getting Around

Fair Haven is 2 miles east of the New Haven Green. Public transportation from downtown is available. The Q bus will drop you off right at the corner, D bus is a few blocks away. Downtown New Haven is ten minutes from the house by car. Easy access to 91 and 95.

Other Things to Note

We are right up the street from the Quinnipiac River where wild parrots now live...many birds to watch! We are very close to a marina and there is a lovely Boat House Cafe open for breakfast and lunch within easy walking distance. Shopping on Grand Avenue at CTown. Elm City Market offers organic and natural foods on Chapel Street downtown. There is a great wine store across the Grand Avenue bridge called Grand Vin. Lovely River park down the street for fabulous views of the river and homes. Neighbors are friendly and we have a neighborhood association called Chatham Square where we continue to improve the area and build relationships. Unique place to live.
