History welcomes you and invites you to enjoy this third floor space. A cozy bedroom with nooks and crannies make it special. The antique headboard and original bathroom corner sink all make you think of times past. Head on through the sunny living room, the old floors creaking beneath your feet. A great place to longe with a book or relax in the evening with some quality netflix time. Enjoy a leisurely cup of coffee perched at the window bar. The original windows form what we call “the tower”. A lovely place to watch the world go by. The kitchenette has a stove, mini fridge and microwave. There is a great leather chair and couch with a tv/with bluray player for watching movies. The queen bed features an antique brass headboard from Italy and a memory foam mattress. The bathroom was just remodeled, however we were able to keep the original tub and corner sink. Most of the walls feature a lime wash treatment and many of the furniture pieces are collected items. All things we loved about our European travels.

This flat is on the third floor and requires climbing 3 sets of stairs.
This is a downtown location - there will be street noise and we also have other guests in the house. We strive to be respectful of one another, but understand that noise will happen!
Parking is on the street and detailed instructions are sent before check in. It is free every night after 6 and on the weekends.

The space
Our home was built by Return E. Fahnestock in the 1880's. When we purchased it in 2008, it was in a state of serious disrepair. We have slowly been bringing it back to life over the last 12 years. This flat is named after the Fahnestock's grandaughter, Elizabeth.
