This one bedroom suite with private bath is a 5 min. walk to charming shops, restaurants and the train to Manhattan. Sarah Lawrence College is also a short walk. Enjoy privacy with two rooms, your own entrance and small private bathroom.
The suite has two small rooms - a bedroom with one full size bed, TV and lounge chair. The connecting room has a dining table, lounge chair and single bed/sofa.
There is also a SMALL but functional ensuite bathroom off the bedroom.
We are only a 5 minute walk from the Bronxville train station and 6 minute walk to Sarah Lawrence College. The train to New York City takes 27 minutes to Grand Central. There are trains to Yankee Stadium on game days!
Bronxville Village surrounds the station, so is in easy walking distance. It's a lovely village which acts as the college town for Sarah Lawrence with charming shops, restaurants and coffee places.
The rental space has a private entrance on the ground floor, separate from the rest of the house. There is also access from the suite to our kitchen, which you are welcome to use. There is a mini fridge reserved for guests.
The rooms are quiet, have cable TV and wifi. One caveat, the word "suite" seems to confuse some inquirers who are expecting enormous size and great luxury. These are pleasant rooms, but definitely not enormous.
The bathroom is functional and contains a shower, sink and toilet but is small and still has the old fixtures. This was historically the servants' quarters, so please do not expect rain shower-heads and Jacuzzi tubs. If we were able to provide sumptuous luxury, I guess we would be listing at twice the price!
There is plenty of parking and you are welcome to use the outdoor areas in warm weather.
The house is built on a hill so, alas, is NOT disability-friendly. You will need to negotiate a sloping driveway and flagstone path to get in.
We would love to welcome you to a peaceful retreat in Westchester's loveliest community. Great for visiting Sarah Lawrence, Westchester, and New York City.
Access to kitchen which communicates directly to your sitting room. Use of all pots, pans, dishes etc. if you want to cook.
You are also welcome to use the public living room and outside porch and yard.
Interaction is very much up to you. We are social people and really enjoy finding out about our guests. On the other hand, guests are often busy or tired and desire privacy, which we respect.
We live and work here, so we are always available to answer questions, and we enjoy doing so. The house is compartmentalized, however, and extremely soundproof, so you are unlikely to hear us or other guests unless you choose to.
This is an old house we are gradually restoring. There is still much work to be done, so the outside is not pristine yet.
It is built on a hill so, alas, is NOT disability friendly. You will need to negotiate steps and/or a STEEPLY sloping path to get into the house.
On the plus side, we are the only house on a dead end road, so plenty of free street parking.
Enjoy yourself ! We are very flexible and encourage you to entertain guests if you would like to.
The only real rule is no smoking in the house, please.
We write and teach, sometimes working at home. My husband is a lawyer and legal academic, and I am a doctor and medical academic. Neither of us is in practice as we are trying to write a textbook. Our kids have graduated from college, so we have a large, empty house. Hence our listing on Airbnb.
We have several friends who love hosting and encouraged us to do it. So far so good! It has been fun and fascinating for us. We are still in touch with a number of our Airbnb-ers.
We have lived here for 16 years and are very happy to help if you have logistical questions or particular needs. We are social people and love to get to know our guests a little. On the other hand, we respect everyone's privacy. Guests are often busy, the amount of interaction is up to you.
My husband is a fanatic about baseball and blues, and we both love theater. We seem to own six motorcycles. All this proves that It is hard to describe oneself in a few lines.
