Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • This was my first time using airbnb and it was a great experience over all! Ellen was so kind and has a beautiful home. The location was great, near the train station and bus stops. She took us in last minute and was flexible with check in times. Thank you Ellen!

  • Great place, friendly people, easy commute to NYC. Enjoyed the conversation, the privacy and the hospitality. The room was really comfortable and beautifully designed, as is the whole house. Very happy to have stayed there.

  • The location for visiting NYC was great, train station is across the street. There is plenty of safe parking for visitors choosing to train into NYC instead of making the drive and paying $30.00 for parking a day. The train fare is $7.00-$9.00 each way. The house is very well decorated and charming. However,the house was not the (website hidden) the end of our 4 night stay there were no fresh towels and the bath matt was very dirty and scary looking. Kitchen was cluttered and counters and dishes were grimy. If your just looking for a place to lay your head for a reasonable price I would recommend this place, however if your looking for the B&B feel you will be disappointed.

  • Marion is a wonderful host. Her home is extremely beautiful and the room was super comfy. Moreover, she is super nice and helped us get our luggage to and from the train station and even made us breakfast. She went way beyond our expectations and I would recommend them anytime to anyone. Thank you so much for hosting us!

  • Marion and Ellen were amazing hosts! Marion picked us up from the subway and was so welcoming and friendly. She even cooked us Dutch food and was so engaging and made us tea upon arrival. We also talked a lot about each of our backgrounds, which I could have done for hours because it was so interesting. The room was very clean and spacious (I stayed there as well as a friend) and the bathroom was also very clean and well decorated! Everything about our stay felt safe and comfortable. The train ride into the city isn't too far and it's an amazing view (she lives right across from the Hudson River). I would definitely recommend staying here!

  • Marion has a beautiful home in an amazing location. It is very close to the train if you need to commute to NYC. I drove, and there were plenty of street parking right outside the house. The house and my room is clean and spacious. I wish I had spent more time at the house. Marion is a gracious host. She genuinely likes to meet her guests and made them feel at home. I will definitely be back!

  • I loved this house and the atmosphere! I just wish I could have met Marion. I understand she is a great host. What a wonderful bed I slept in--it was so comfortable! The Mexican tiles in the bathroom and kitchen were great as were the other Mexican touches. A beautiful place that was so convenient to the train; I really recommend this house as a place to stay near New York City and the Clearwater Festival.
