About this listing
Welcome to our oasis! Morgantown is the nickname for the artsy area of Bushwick, Brooklyn that we reside in. We offer a cozy place to stay and full breakfast daily with easy access to two major subway lines, while you explore our exciting city .
The bedroom has a full/double sized bed, some shelves, a desk and a closet. Ideal for a couple, but we also have a futon couch that converts into an extra single sleeper for a third person. The room has a door to our backyard. It also has it's own thermostat controlled heat and an air conditioning unit (when it's warm).
You are welcome to use our kitchen at your pleasure. The bathroom is shared with us. The shower is clean and has really good hot water. We will provide linens/soap/shampoo/towels/toothbrushes.
And yes we have Wifi!
Our Nespresso machine makes great cappuccinos, lattes, lungos and espressos which we make every morning. It's easy enough for anybody to use so feel free to help yourself at any time
Interaction with Guests
My name is Alec, my girlfriend is Laura, we will be your hosts. Laura loves to cook breakfast, which we will provide for you every morning in our dining room/kitchen. We love music so usually we play a good record on our vintage record player during breakfast.
Our little dog is a Wolf-Spitz/Corgi mix named Fozzio "Fozzy" Bear-Wolf, and he is awesome. Never met anybody he didn't like. He's adorable. Looks like a wolf puppy, but will not get any bigger. A forever pup.
Morgantown gets the nickname because it is the area surrounding the Morgan Ave L Train stop, and the L Train is one of the best lines in the city. Art galleries, music venues, yoga studios and great restaurants and bars such as famed Roberta's Pizza are all within easy walking distance. Morgantown is the heart of the thriving Bushwick, Brooklyn art scene.
We live about 5 blocks from the Morgan Ave L train. The L train goes direct to Union Square and will bring you there in 15 minutes. It is one of the fastest subways in NYC, and it connects to almost all of the other lines. We also live close to the J/M/Z line so this is a very convenient place to be and have easy access to all parts of the city.
Other Things to Note
Laura and I both work at a couple of the restaurants/bars nearby. I'm also in a funk/rock/soul band based in Bushwick, Brooklyn. We know and love the area very well.
You have access to our backyard if you are a smoker. If you are open-minded, caring, friendly, fun and cool, and want to be around similar people, come stay with us!
Your Bedroom, with a futon that converts into an additional bed for one, and the door to the backyard if you're a smoker.
We stayed for two weeks at Laura's & Alec's place in NY and enjoyed it a lot. We felt very welcome at all times, both are great hosts and Laura's breakfast is the best! We would like to have those recipes ;-) Their place is located in an upcoming area, although not an overly busy one until now, which we liked a lot after long days. Nevertheless, perfectly located to start in all directions.
What else to say? If you like a nice place to sleep, perfectly located in true Brooklyn, hosted by a very charming and welcoming couple, here you go!
Oh my goodness! This is my little slice of home when I come through! Space is wonderful and cozy. I love the neighborhood. And there was even homemade banana bread. I always got my fingers crossed for this place when I'm visiting BK.
Alec and Laura were very welcoming, kind, knowledgeable about the area. The breakfast was delicious, their dog the sweetest you'll ever meet & the air con a god send. Thank you both!
Alec et Laura sont gentils, souriants et discrets. De quoi regretter de ne pas les avoir mieux connus! L'appartement est correctement situé, assez proche de Manhattan, mais plus sombre et plus petit que nous ne le pensions à la vue des photos!
Alec and Laura were wonderful hosts. They were there to welcome us, gave us GREAT suggestions for our short stay in Brooklyn, and made us feel right at home. Felt like staying with old friends.
Thank you Alec and Laura for demonstrating what life in Brooklyn can be like. Returning each day to a comfortable AirB&B room made me relaxed after a day about the big city. All my senses were well and truly satisfied.
Alec & Laura are amazing hosts. Warm, friendly, and genuine people. I will highly recommend their B&B to friends visiting the (website hidden): breakfast is included, and it was delicious!
About the Host, Alec & Laura
I, Alec, hail from Seattle and am one of those dreaming artists. I moved to this neighborhood seven years ago. My fiance, Laura, the love of my life, is another who moved here from Amsterdam... and met me. We moved out of the famed McKibbin Artist Lofts into a beautiful 2 bedroom apartment a few blocks away. A couple years ago, we opened up our extra bedroom to fellow travelers pursuing their dreams, seeking an inspiring place to relax during their journey.
Hosting has been a great experience for us so far, and we look forward to hosting, possibly you next!
