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.
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!
We had a great stay in Alec and Laura's apartment, the room was very comfortable. Good location and easy to get into the city on the L train or to other parts of Brooklyn. There is a lot to do in the area and it is a nice place to relax after the craziness of Manhattan. Laura's breakfasts are delicious. They also have the friendliest dog ever!
Laura and Alec were really great hosts! They made us feel comfortable and welcomed and we enjoyed meeting them and learning more about them! Alec gave us great recommendations on places to go, eat, and things to see and Laura was a fantastic cook and really funny! We got to see Alec's band perform a show and it was incredible! Their dog Fozzybear was a sweetheart and made it less hard to be away from my own dog! They let us have our own space while still being around if we wanted company! We visited Laura at her restaurant twice because it was so good! Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable, we even had access to the outside porch! There was a nice closet which was great because we stayed eight days and it was great to have unpacked the suitcases. The bathroom was clean and the water pressure was perfect! The place is also near the subway which is how we traveled the entire week so that was a huge bonus! We definitely recommend staying here in Bushwick if you're the kind of person who loves meeting new people and has a great appreciation for art! We can't wait to come back soon and hopefully be reconnected with our new friends! Thank you for everything guys!
We had a great time in Bushwick! The appartement is really a lovely place and Alec an Laura are very kind, welcoming an relaxed people. The breakfast was awesome!
The area is very nice with lots of bars and good food. You can get to Manhattan very easily. We absolutely recommend this place to others.
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!
