About the Host, Dorothee
Originally from France (I was born and raised in Paris), I moved to the US fifteen years ago. I share my time between Jersey City and the Catskills in Upstate New York. I have two dogs, Romeo (Boxer) and Toby (Papillon/Chihuahua) whom I adore. If you choose to stay in my house, you will discover a gem nestled amidst brownstones' gardens. Formerly a carriage house, the house was built in 1865 and as such is a registered historic building. It is decorated with mid-century modern furniture and has all the modern amenities one needs.
