This is a lovely home in a historic neighborhood. Nancy and David are great hosts. I would highly recommend it.

Love Nancy and Dave's house! Great home, wonderful hosts, and quiet neighborhood. They go above and beyond with their hospitality, which made my conference four-day stay comfortable and smooth. A five star experience! Highly recommended!

Dave and Nancy are very kind. It is an older home and thus sound travels easily. The shower situation is not convenient to the bedroom, but the home itself is excellently situated to car travelers.

Response from Nancy:
We make it clear on the website that this house is over 100 years old so I'm not sure what the first comment means. Also the shower is mentioned in the house description. Be sure to read it. She seemed surprised that she would have to share a bathroom with us.

I enjoyed my stay in this cozy house. It was very quiet and I have no issues sleeping soundly. There was breakfast and coffee provided. I was able to walk to my destination so the location was ideal.

Dave and Nancy were great host! Even though I was always out at a conference, every morning and every night they would ask how my day was and were purely interested. They were a nice couple to get to know. Thank you for everything!

We're from St. Paul, MN and both retired. I was a teacher for 35 years. Dave is a freelance editor and writer. We love books as you'll discover. We spend a lot of time in Brooklyn, NY visiting our sons, their wives and our grandson, but we also love to host and have met some interesting people. One of our favorite "date nights" is renting a movie and cooking a meal to fit the cuisine represented in it. We've explored Fijian, Ghanian, Japanese, Spanish, Indian and French cuisine as well as some I've chosen to forget!
