About the property

Two story townhouse with outdoor space, private laundry and loads of charm!

Welcome to our lovely townhouse! A full two floors of cozy country charm in Manhattan! This property is 1.5 blocks from the very convenient #1 subway line and 1 block from the Hudson River and the stunning park we love and use often. Our home is the perfect get away for a small family visiting NYC. In our other property, we catered to 5 people or less and will do the same here. No large groups, no parties...this is our home and we want you to treat it as your own. We have been VRBO landlords since 2002 and are thrilled to carry on our tradition of entertaining folks wanting to visit our great city.

All currently booked Vermont rentals will be honored! Will now be renting our new property in NYC! Please contact me with any questions!

About Shelly

We have been VRBO landlords since 2002. It is something we love doing and want to continue the tradition of showing people the places we love. We live in this home and will help you with your travel and vacation needs.

Shelly purchased this house in 2012

Why Shelly chose Manchester

Because it is a fabulous and safe up and coming neighborhood that still (for now) has a feel or "real" NYC. It is conveniently located 1.5 blocks from the best subway line, the #1 and right by Riverside Park. Audubon Terrace was the home of naturalist and artist John James Audubon. The area is rich with history and there is plenty to do...and NOT in chaotic Midtown or far away in Brooklyn, Queens or Staten Island.

What makes this house unique

You will be staying in two full floors of a real NYC home....not some cookie cutter apartment that smells like bug spray. This is our home. We love it. We care for it. We live here. You will have a ton of space, and be able to visit NYC and feel like a local.

We had the best time here!

Absolutely stunning property! Gayle was lovely and greeted us upon arrival. The barn is gorgeous and immaculately clean and very well appointed. A welcoming basket of local goodies awaited us in the farm kitchen including the most delicious honey from Boorn Brook farm apiary! Our children loved the sledding on the hill, the animals and the walks for our dog who befriended, Ender. We skied nearby in Bromley and enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub in the evening under the stars and snow falling. We played games in front of the fire and we all were very thankful for the family time we spent in such a magical place.

Our stay was wonderful. Beautiful views and comfortable accommodations.

We loved sharing our stay with some of the farm animals too!

It was magical. We hope to return again next winter season.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

Great place, lots of space. The different animals and the pool table are a nice benefit. The only compliant came from my teenage daughter that there wasn't a door on the upstairs bedroom but she would still go back.

Our family with two kids had a wonderful visit this weekend. Your farm is gorgeous and the picture of VT living. Thank you so much for hosting us and for creating a magical environment that you are willing to share with visitors such as ourselves.

Peaceful setting with a 360 degree view that can't be beat

  • 5 of 5

Shelly, we had at great stay at the farm. The accommodations and welcoming committee (Lola/Pan/Axel) were excellent. We look forward to a future stay. I had read a prior review about noting possible improvements and the only thing I could think of was maybe improving the loft bedroom so a second couple would have a nice comfortable bed. Thanks again, Jim and Jody.
