Stay at the Nash. Located in New Haven's East Rock neighborhood, the Nash is right around the corner from well-reviewed restaurants along New Haven's State Street. We're a 15 minute walk to Yale, and only 25 minutes to all the restaurants downtown.
The Nash is a quaint home in the Goatville (http://(email hidden)/history.html) section of the East Rock Neighborhood of New Haven. The rooms are small, and except for the added on room (the Rio), the floors are wood. Currently there is no cable and only one shared bathroom (we have plans to put a 1/2 bath in the front).
The patron of house works as a massage therapist, a service we provide guest for at the rate of $40 an hour, half of top dollar for massage.
Guests have their own room and share common kitchen, bath, dining and living area- although sometimes the latter is needed for an in-home therapeutic massage studio. No breakfast is currently served but we keep many staples on hand such as coffee, tea, breads, eggs and so on.
There is a washer & dryer on premise, but for safety and security, the host would do any laundry if you would like something washed here. There is also a local laundromat about a two blocks away. Additionally we will do pick-up and return dry cleaning for any guests who would like with New Haven's best cleaners. You would only have to call in a card number to them, and we would do the rest.
Interaction with Guests
Interaction with guests varies. My work and personal life varies in intensity and demands so there are times when I'm more available than others. Also, of course, the guests needs and desires come first. Many need a quiet place and time without much social interaction in between what they came to New Haven for, others like to spend more time talking over coffee, or even going out and seeing part of New Haven together. At the Nash, we want each guest to get the most out of their visit in New Haven, be it reflective time to read and study, and so on or time to engage with the host, or local scenes and activities.
The surrounding area is known affectionately as the Grad Ghetto because of the large number of graduate students, phd candidates and other academics. The neighborhood is very diverse with many families living here as well. The Nash is two doors down from a quaint park available to BBQ in season. The block holds four holiday parties a year here, anyone is welcome.
We're one or two blocks away from either nearby bus routes, and we're walking distance to most sights in town. We're close to free Yale Shuttle stops, and not far from a variety of great restaurants, pubs, shops, museums, theatres, the beautiful East Rock Park and of course, Yale itself.
Seth has also provided rides for people in need with transportation difficulties. People wanting bike rentals are referred to our friend, found on(website hidden) Goatville Cyclesmith, Joel LaChance.
We are a small home and ask guests to be respectful of general tidiness and of each other's personal space. We've never had any problems, but for additional privacy and security each guest receives not only the keys for the front door but a key to their own room
Pets- sorry, due to some guests' allergies, no pets allowed.
Smoking- so sorry, no smoking in the Nash. Smoker may enjoy are backyard, front patio, and the few New Haven establishments that permit smoking ( The Owl; (website hidden) is the best known).
Children- Sorry, for safety and consideration of all, no children under ten at The Nash.
Additional Guests- while friends and family are welcome to visit at The Nash, additional overnight guests in your room are an additional $25 per guest. Thank you.
Place was very comfy, clean and relaxing. As someone visiting for a grad school interview, the peace and quiet (along with the helpfulness of the host) was very appreciated.
Seth was a great host. I arrived a lot later than anticipated because of some flight changes, and he accomodated me. Although there is only one bathroom, I did not find that to be a problem. For those visiting Yale, his neighborhood is easily accessible via Yale's Free Shuttle or walking. If it's really cold (like it was during my visit), an uber is also very affordable. Overall, a great place to stay if you're going to be out and about New Haven. Thanks Seth!
This was my first airbnb experience and I had a very enjoyable stay at the Nash. My bed was very comfortable and I slept well each night. I was initially hesitant to book because the house has only one bathroom but I never had to wait. I am not normally much of a cat person but I adored Kiki! Thanks Seth :)
Seth is very nice! Thank you for helping. Street is quiet, and there is friendly cat.
Seth was more than accommodating and incredibly hospitable in every way. When I asked him where the nearest sandwich shops were, he knew exactly where to direct me. The place was clean and cozy--I felt very comfortable! The house was also located on a quiet street that seemed relatively safe when you're walking outside at night. I highly recommend this place if you need somewhere to stay in New Haven for a quick getaway of sorts.
This was my second time staying at the Nash! Seth is a great host. Just like last time everything was clean and ready to go. Would definitely recommend staying here.

I am the proud owner of The Nash at Yale Bed & Breakfast, located in New Haven's Goatville section of the East Rock Neighborhood. I live in the home and with the help of a floating crew of friends personally handle all aspects of the operations. The Nash at Yale is a true, owner-operated B & B. We are both passionate about providing the best possible experience we can for our guests. We appreciate thoughtful management and friendly service whenever we travel and we know how important it is to you. To any allergic to cats: apologies; we have taken on a rescue cat, Kiki as resident feline.
I've enjoyed France- Paris & Avignon, Costa Rica- San Hose, and the Pacific coast. Quebec & Montreal, St. Martinique, and various places in the states... I would love to go to Katamah Beach Resort in Treasure Beach of Jamaica, Japan, all over the Mediterranean, actually there are few place I wouldn't be interested in going to at this point...
I have an extensive and eclectic collection of books and find myself interested in many genres from all periods, modern to classic. Most of all Myth, folk, fairy tale and children's literature. I am currently working on my own Alice in Wonderland/ Wizard of Oz-esque fairy tale.
I am also working on co-founding a new non-profit: The New Haven International Chess Organization (info on that found at (website hidden)).
I love live music, and supporting my local bands, but the list of music I love is endless and diverse, moreover I love when a new or old friend introduces me to something I haven't yet heard, then, even when they're not around, when I hear that music, I think of them.
My taste in food is similar to that of my love for the varied in art & music- while I have my favorite local restaurants, I love getting creative in the kitchen or learning someone else's ways in the kitchen. Like dining, cooking is often best as a shared experience.
