Property description

Accommodations in the romantic style of a bed and breakfast. The elegant turn-of-the-century brownstone is located on East 62nd Street between Park and Lexington Avenue within the historic district of the Upper East. Luxurious Madison Avenue boutiques as well as fine dining and world-renowned museums and cultural institutions surround the house. Central Park is two blocks away. For guests here on business, the house is ideally located near Midtown Manhattan as well as 7 subway lines and Grand Central Station. The 5-story brownstone house contains a total of 7 charming suites - 11 bedrooms in total. We encourage you to review our comprehensive website, www.1871house.com, for further details and photos.

The approximate rate range for our full-floor suites (all with private en-suite bathroom) is $345-$685 per night. Rates may be higher or lower depending on the total length of your stay, # of persons to be accommodated as well as how far in advance you are making the reservation. The low end of this rate range is applicable for our least expensive suite option for last minute inquiries or low season dates. Our lowest rate is also offered for extended stays, for specific existing gap dates in between longer occupancy periods as well as for shorter stays that fall back to back with reservations already in place on non-weekend nights. Rates for advance dates, high-season periods and holidays are at the high end of the rate range. There is rate variation within months. Potential rate flexibility is date specific. Minimum night stay requirement varies throughout the year. One, two and three-night stays available for last minute inquiries and for gap periods as well as non-weekend dates that fall back to back with reservations in place. Multiple room reservations & larger group size and holidays may require longer stays. The maximum travel group size that we can comfortably accommodate is generally no more than 6-8 persons. Please send us a general inquiry so that we can send you an exact rate quote.

Offset on a side townhouse block within Manhattan’s fashionable Upper East Side, the pretty shuttered townhouse is in a nicely quiet location two blocks from Central Park. The quiet street makes you forget you’re in the heart of the city.

Rooms offer high ceilings, ornamental fireplaces, and four-poster beds covered by quilts, marble-topped dressers and lace-curtained windows. Fireplace mantles, moldings around windows and high ceilings have been preserved. All give the place an elegant B&B feel, as do the antiques scattered throughout. Rooms are modernly enough appointed that you won't feel stuck in the 19th century. Each room is quite large, cozy and country furnished.

More about the location:
Elegantly situated on Manhattan’s fashionable Upper East Side, the House's location enjoys the best of both worlds – serene privacy and un-matched convenience. The house's location is a quiet residential enclave for some of New York’s most prestigious addresses. The neighborhood abounds with tasteful, exclusive boutiques and charming, international restaurants. Yet, the house is only three blocks from bustling Midtown and some of the City's fabulous Museums including the Frick, The Met and MoMa. Shopping is plentiful including the 4 Bs: Bloomingdales, Barneys, Bendels and Bergdorf-Goodman.

Th house is walking distance to Fifth Avenue and Midtown East with its ubiquitous Corporate Offices as well as midtown Manhattan's exclusive Decoration & Design building (D&D building) and Manhattan Art and Antiques Center. Architects, Designers and Collectors from around the world travel to this area for its concentration of design and home furnishings showrooms and galleries.

Medical professionals, patients, families, and caregivers appreciate our ideal location minutes away from some of the country's best hospitals and medical facilities including Memorial Sloan Kettering, Weill Cornell Medical College, Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital, New York-Presbyterian hospital, Lenox Hill Hospital, the Hospital for Special Surgery and Mount Sinai Hospital.

Car: Not Necessary

Celebrity sightings and Gossip Girl shoots may be regular occurrences around the Upper East Side, but the neighborhood's real appeal emerges from its refined character. Home to some of the City's finest museums, restaurants and shops, as well as the stately mansions and statuesque apartment houses where New York's elite have lived for generations, the Upper East Side exudes elegance on every block. Museum Mile—which runs along Fifth Avenue between East 82nd and East 105th Streets—boasts nine world-class cultural institutions, while Madison Avenue teems with the biggest names in haute couture, both in designer boutiques and at high-end resale shops that sell stylish brands at nearly half-price. When hunger strikes, you can choose from everything from down-home diners to posh restaurants to some of the City's most renowned Japanese sushi spots. Kids and grown-ups alike delight in some of the City's best ice cream sundaes after a day spent meeting exotic wildlife at Manhattan's only zoo. As elegant and historic as it is cutting-edge and exciting, the Upper East Side is a must-see neighborhood that truly offers something for everyone.
