About this listing
A wonderful and cozy place to stay just a stones throw away from Midtown Manhattan. Perfect for large gatherings, sleeps 8 guest comfortably an you can add air mattress' throughout to cozy up your stay with up to 12 guest. Perfect for families. This
Situated just one stop from Manhattan in Dutch Kills, Long Island City, sits a lovely little house that we call The Cottage.
Built in the early 20th Century, this frame house would be like an old story book cottage if it weren't so close to the city. There are 4 bedrooms to accommodate a large group. There are accommodations for infants also, so just let us know. All of the bedrooms are on the second floor with a full bathroom to use.
The main floor has a full kitchen with a family size refrigerator. So if you plan on staying for a while, fill up the fridge. There is a dining table that can easily accommodate a large group (six chairs, but can be extended to hold 10). The living room is comfy and cozy and you will always have lots of natural light coming thru the windows. On the main floor there is another bathroom with a standing shower so there is no waiting in line. The main floor has a small bedroom that sleeps one guest. So if you have someone that cannot go up the stairs easily, this room should be helpful.
There is a garden in the front where you can sit to relax after a long day of sight seeing. Right in front of our gate is the bike path to cross over into Manhattan so if you like to ride bikes, we can help get them for you, just let us know how many (there is a charge for this from the local bike shop). Our block is quiet and you will never be bothered by traffic going by.
Our Cottage is set back 75 feet from the curb and feels so secluded. If you like to entertain you will have no problem doing it at The Cottage or in the Garden. You can BBQ or relax next to the chiminea.
We look forward to meeting you,

Born and raised in Dutch Kills, Long Island City, I am interested in my community's vibrant revival. My family and I have lived on the same street for so many years, really I can't remember how long. With two young children and a busy wife, we still find time play hard. We participate in many local community events that help promote our little town at the foot of the Queens Boro Bridge. My wife owns and operates a Daycare for Children and I am involved in some local business' here in Dutch Kills. I am a football fanatic and love traveling by sea, not air!
We would be so pleased to help you enjoy your stay here at the Cottage and if there is anything we can do for you, please ask.
Welcome to the Cottage in Dutch Kills.
