You will have a very large room and private bathroom. You can easily walk down the quiet side walk to Whitney Avenue where you'll find restaurants, nightlife, and public transportation. Two miles to Quinnipiac and Sleeping Giant State Park, a short drive or bus ride to downtown New Haven. I DO NOT RENT TO SMOKERS - it is not just no smoking - it is NO SMOKERS.

The space
You will be comfortable in this very spacious room with three windows and a large desk. You will have a private bathroom. There is a mini-fridge, microwave, tea kettle, and coffee maker in your room. This is appropriate for a short term stay as laundry and kitchen are not available. My house is on a quiet side street, an easy walk to restaurants, pharmacy, post office, and more. The bus is right at the end of the road to take you into New Haven. About two miles to the Quinnipiac Mt. Carmel Campus, three miles to the York Hill Campus, a very short ride to the QU Medical School on the North Haven Campus.

I am a puppy raiser for Guiding Eyes for the Blind - I will have a puppy (Black or Yellow Labrador Retriever) anywhere between 8 weeks and 16 months. She is usually leashed or crated, always sweet, not always well-mannered (but always working on it).

Guest access
The rental is a very large bedroom with a full size desk and office chair. There is a private bathroom. A mini-fridge, microwave, tea kettle, and coffee maker are in the room. Kitchen and laundry are not part of the rental. I do not rent to smokers - it is not just no smoking - it is NO SMOKERS.

Other things to note
There is on-street parking. Make a U-turn at the stop sign and park between the corner and the driveway or between the driveway and the next driveway. If it snows you will need to shovel your car out (I have shovels). I do not rent to smokers - it is not just no smoking - it is NO SMOKERS.
