  • I had a wonderful stay at Marion & Ellen's home, I only met Ellen for a few minutes at a time as I was working during my stay but she was very friendly and warm when we crossed paths! Their home is beautiful and spacious and has all the amenities you could need. The surrounding area is gorgeous (if a little hilly!) and you can see the Hudson River from the house (really enjoyed eating my breakfast on the porch looking out over the river in the distance!

    If you are arriving by train and you have luggage, be prepared to walk some serious steps up to the street and house! Also, if you don't have transport the walk to the nearest shops is pretty intense. Ellen does have plenty of menus for delivery though if you can't get a ride or face the long walk!

    All in all a great place to stay and great people to stay with!

  • We had a wonderful first AirBnB experience at Ellen's home. The home was warm and welcoming. Ellen and her crew were so kind to us.

  • What I will remember from this stay: A lot of laughter and fun!! Ellen is so nice and welcoming, and have a great sense of humor. I worked at Valhalla, and the bus stops near the house. But the best thing was going into the city in my sparetime, the trainstation is close and its abourt 30 min to Grand Central - Perfect!!

    Thank you Ellen, for being such a good host! :)

  • MY Stay was better than expected. The location is awesome and made mt trips into Manhattahan super easy and quick. The bathroom, bedroom and kitchen was super clean and comfortable.I felt very comfortable, no stress and at home. Marion was get helping with suggestion and directions. Ella was very friendly and other staying at House were all very friendly and interesting. I felt very safe and price was extremely reasonable. MY 14 year old niece from New Orleans was traveling with me and she was also very comfortable and felt safe. This was first B & B experience in USA and I will definitely stay again. Actually, going back to New York in 3 weeks and look forward to stay at Riverview Home away from Home.
    Thanks for a great stay,

  • Our stay with Marion and Ellen was nothing short of wonderful. :) We were there for a conference being held in Hastings on Hudson, so the location was fabulous. The train station is literally across the street, so travel to/from anywhere is super simple. Marion was very open and kind, and made us feel at home from the moment we got there. The home is beautiful, and process of booking/coordinating was super laid back and simple. If ever in the area again, I will definitely be staying here!

  • My wife and I stayed with Marion for several days. She is most welcoming, her place is immaculate, and just a few steps from the short train ride into the city. A beautiful, quiet place on the river to relax after a day in NYC!
