"Staying with Jessica at the historic mansion was quite a remarkable experience. It was not only one of the nicest homes I have ever stayed at on Airbnb, but Jessica made one of the best breakfasts that I have ever had . . . better than any breakfast spot we found, so if you stay here, I recommend sticking around for breakfast. The photos do not do the first floor justice. It is massive, but also very charming. We stayed in the top floor, and the room was beautifully designed and arranged for us. After staying with Jessica, I would recommend it as one of the best Airbnb's in New York, and a must visit if you want to experience the authenticity of a Brooklyn brownstone neighborhood, the charm of an historic mansion, and the soul of Jessica's hospitality. In other words, this is a 6 star experience, even though we only allow 5 stars to be left."

Built in the late nineteenth century by the Pfizer pharmaceutical family, this magnificent landmarked historic brownstone mansion is one of Brooklyn's architectural gems. Located in Clinton Hill, where early industrialists built their mansions along quiet tree-lined streets, this neighborhood is the borough's most culturally and architecturally interesting and is now home to many noted writers, artists and musicians. The house has been meticulously restored and decorated with beautiful vintage modern furnishings and museum-quality art; 19th century opulence meets 21st century Brooklyn cool. As a guest, you will enjoy relaxed yet attentive service in an atmosphere of understated luxury; the bedding and other amenities are of the highest quality. Breakfast is prepared daily using seasonal local and organic ingredients (currently on pause). The location is perfect for exploring the rich cultural offerings of Brooklyn, which has been described as one of the hippest places on the planet. You will find, within walking distance, exceptional "Brooklyn craft food and drinks movement" restaurants and bars, BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music), Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Botanical Garden, Prospect Park, Fort Greene Park, the Pratt Sculpture Garden and the Green Market. With easy access to mass transit and Citibikes, the house is also just minutes from other Brooklyn neighborhoods and Manhattan.

Under New York law, short term rentals (less than 30 days) are not permitted when the owner/renter is away. Although legal when the owner/renter is present, many multi-unit building's leases and bylaws prohibit short term rentals. Many guests are being asked not to mention Airbnb and to say that they are simply friends of the host. In buildings where such renting is prohibited the management can remove a guest. Ask if you are renting legally.

Regarded by many as the best neighborhood in New York City for its friendly, diverse, laid-back, and urban vibe; the restaurants are great, the people are wonderful and the architecture is beautiful.

We are thrilled to welcome guests from around the world to Solowihe House and to our garden. It's just the kind of place that we would want to stay if we were visiting New York! We enjoy meeting interesting, creative and passionate people from near and far and sharing our love of Brooklyn and New York City with them -- the history, food, art, architecture, and music. We are relaxed and welcoming. Staying with us is like staying with friends or family. This is not a hotel, glamp-ground, or a bed and breakfast 'business' - no teddy bears or pot pourri. It is sometimes elegant and sometimes casual. We like traveling, vintage furniture, street art, local food, gardening, activism, and all kinds of music. It's 'real life' here -- we have a boxer dog who is an enthusiastic greeter, housemates who are in and out and friends who stop by. That said, we try really hard to make each guest's stay wonderfully memorable. Please read our reviews -- we've hosted amazing people! Host is COVID-19 vaccinated.
