Wake up to great view of Hudson River, charming bedroom, private bath, breakfast area, extra futon, lovely 19th century home in Yonkers, top floor to yourself, urban/suburban area, on aqueduct trail, walk to Metro-North train, 30 min. to midtown NYC.

The space

Relax and spread out on the top floor of our charming 19th century house in Yonkers overlooking the Hudson River, close to Metro-North train, with easy access to NYC to the south and rivertowns to the north.

Your area includes a bedroom with a very comfortable queen bed, a second room with a futon couch/bed, a breakfast area, and your own bathroom.

The breakfast area includes a sink, coffee maker, toaster, electric kettle, small fridge, and cafe table, but no microwave or oven. We start you off with some staples (coffee, tea, milk, butter), you bring the rest. It's important to note that, while our neighborhood has an urban/suburban feel, there are no grocery stores, cafes, coffee shops, delis, restaurants, or bars within easy walking distance of the house. Whenever possible, we're happy to drive you to a local grocery store for supplies.

The small bathroom, recently renovated, has a bathtub/shower and great water pressure.

The sun-filled bedroom has a comfortable queen bed, with a window overlooking the Hudson River and the Palisades; the smaller, shadier room, with a window overlooking the Aqueduct Trail, has a futon couch that folds out to a bed. It can serve as a quiet living room space or second small bedroom (the rooms are not rented separately). No TV. Free Wi-Fi.

The house is on a steep hill, so there is a climb of more than ten steps to the entrance and your rooms are on the third floor, meaning another two flights of stairs. You'll need to be in reasonably good shape to enjoy staying here.

We live on a busy street across from a well-used public park. Occasionally music and party sounds reach the house, but it usually dies down after sundown.

We have a dog. You won't have to interact with him (he is, however, very outgoing and loves attention). He is never allowed on your floor.

Guest access

You have exclusive use of the rooms on the 3rd floor of the house (except for our office, which we don't use during your visit). You're also welcome to hang out in the backyard, which we also use.

Interaction with guests

We are a quiet, friendly couple who are happy to share our house. We're eager to provide as much information as we can to help make your stay enjoyable. Please always feel free to ask us about anything and be sure to let us know about anything we've overlooked or run out of.

We're pretty busy during the week, but when we're not, we love to stop and chat with guests who have time and inclination. We are respectful of those who prefer to be left alone to rest or enjoy the privacy of the suite.

Other things to note

We're glad to share information about places to visit and to help orient you to the area.

Great location if you're more than two people looking for private rooms. Super close to the train station that takes you to Grand Central in 30mins. Very clean and has all the necessities with a few extras (like coffee). Bring ear plugs if you're staying during summer. The air conditioner is pretty loud. Enjoyed our stay a lot!

Wendy and Tom were lovely hosts and the suite was just as I expected it to be. It is very close and an easy walk to the Metro North train station (Glenwood), making it simple to get to Manhattan. Best for a couple, or a couple plus one if you want the best experience in the space (would get a bit snug with four)! Parking was free and usually a space was found easily, but this proved slightly more complicated late at night or on weekends when the streets were busier. Very easy to come and go without disturbing the hosts, we felt very comfortable and free to explore on any schedule. I hope to return again!

This was our first Airbnb experience. Overall, it worked out really well. 1. This is a big, old house and so has lots of charm - but lots of stairs too. Not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. 2. The house is very close to the train station (walkable in a few minutes) so easy access to NYC. 3. Parking is on the street, but we never had a problem finding a spot in front of the house. 4. Having the entire upper floor to ourselves was great. It was very comfortable. 5. The owners were very helpful when we had questions about nearby grocery stores or restaurants. They also stocked the fridge with the basics which was SO nice. 6. Admittedly, we were gone most of the time so did not spend a lot of time with Wendy & Tom, but they seemed very nice. 7. Suggestion: Have the Croque-Madame at Antoinette’s for breakfast. 8. We would definitely stay here again and would use Airbnb again for sure.

Our stay at Tom and Wendy's house was short but very sweet! The bed was very comfortable, the room was really cosy with a great view! The accommodations were perfect with our private bathroom (cleanly renovated) and the little kitchen which provided all we needed for breakfast. Thanks Tom and Wendy, your house and neighborhood were a great find on our road trip!

We had a lovely stay at Wendy and Tom's place. Wendy was really friendly and made sure to check in with us to make sure everything was ok. We spent 3 nights there with our 2 year old while visiting New York City. The apartment was clean and quiet. The best part was the stocked fridge! We really enjoyed the yogurt and iced teas. We would totally stay there again.

A great location across from a park/museum overlooking the Hudson River and just a quick drive to the charming Hastings where we had a delicious dinner upon Tom's recommendation. Not only is this large house absolutely gorgeous, we enjoyed a whole floor to ourselves with two bedrooms, a lovely bathroom, and charming micro-kitchen/eating space. Wendy and Tom responded immediately and were so welcoming. Wendy even came up and brought us a fresh loaf of bread from the city when she came home from work! It was the perfect over-night stay on our way to our new home in New York City to await the movers. Thank you Wendy and Tom for sharing your house with others!

Our stay at Wendy and Tom's place was excellent. We were traveling for business so we were only there at night and early morning. Their place is charming, elegant, and loaded with interesting books and artifacts. Everything was clean. The bathroom is very nice and has an awesome shower. It was a great place to unwind and sleep after a long strenuous day of work.

Wendy & Tom User ProfileWendy & Tom is a superhost.

Tom grew up in North Carolina and moved to NYC in 2001, having left behind everything that wouldn't fit into a small U-Haul truck. After living for a while on the Upper West Side, he met Wendy, who lived then in Park Slope, and became a Brooklynite. We got married in our small apartment (actually in the tiny garden just behind it) in 2006, and after a while began dreaming of a house of our own, near the water, and close enough to commute to Manhattan, where we both were working at the time. In 2010 we found the perfect house for us in Yonkers, and have lived here happily since then, losing a cat (Maud, who had adopted us in Brooklyn, and who was never too comfortable as a suburban housecat), and acquiring a dog (Marlowe, who loves to walk the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail).

What we miss most of all about Brooklyn is the infinite variety of people we used to encounter on a daily basis, and we decided that Airbnb would be a good way to bring the world to us. Our style of hosting is relaxed and, we hope, friendly: we respect our guests' privacy, but are always happy to chat, and offer directions and suggestions about what to do in NYC, Westchester, and the Hudson Valley region.
