Rooms are private to the reserving party.   November through April: $85 for one person + $35 for each additional

  • Amenities: Towels and linens are provided, but there is no regular room service. Rooms are air conditioned. Guests have access to a small cupboard and refrigerator for storing food. The kitchen is available when it is not being used by house residents (generally, weekdays in the late morning and afternoon).
  • Wifi: Complimentary.

Reserving a Room
  • E-mail the manager at or call 212-677-1611. We respond to all messages - both are checked on weekday mornings.
  • If your dates are available, we will ask you to pay for your stay in full in order to make the reservation. Payments may be made by credit/debit card or bank transfer via PayPal, or by sending a US check or money order. We book reservations when we receive payment.
  • Cancellations: There is a $50 service charge for all cancellations. Payments are refundable up to 1 month before the start of a reservation, less this fee. If a reservation is canceled or shortened less than 1 month before the reservation start date, a cancellation fee of 1 night will be charged (rather than the $50 service charge), and the difference refunded to you.
  • Price adjustments for the number of guests staying in a room can be made upon arrival at the house, but please do inform the manager in advance.

  • Check-in: We accept check-ins anytime between 9 am and 11 pm, but we require arrival times at least one week in advance
  • Rooms are guaranteed ready by 3pm. If arriving in the morning, rooms may not be ready, but guests are welcome to collect keys and drop off luggage.
