Had a marvellous stay with Trudy and Paul. Lovely Breakfast every morning and they couldn't be more helpful. Very good location. Very close to Subway and room to park our vehicle outside in a very quiet street. Great location with lovely old homes. They couldn't have been more helpful. Would recommend The Blue Porch to anyone

My (adult) daughter and I stayed at the Blue Porch for our first-ever visit to NYC. The warmth and generosity shown by Trudy and Paul really colored our perception of the city. We felt like special, and very welcome, guests. Conversationally, Trudy and Paul struck the perfect balance: friendly, helpful, but never intrusive. It seems that they know how to... More

Paul and Trudy were very hospitable and friendly, as we had many interesting conversations over our 5 day stay. They are very knowledgeable about New York and gave us lots of tips about the city and directions to places we wanted to see. Although it is just a continental breakfast, it was delicious and they put a lot of care... More

Paul and Trudy were so incredibly lovely; not only did they provide a warm welcoming home, but they helped us plan our travel. We arrived at their home after the airport at 9 PM, hungry for dinner and they immediately gave us a map of all the fabulous local restaurants within walking distance. The next morning when we woke up,... More

it's hard to put into words what a great time we had at the Blue Porch. Trudy and Paul were great hosts and at the end of each day we felt like we going home.

My friends and I had a lovely long weekend at the Blue Porch -- what a wonderful place to relax and catch up. Having NYC a quick subway ride away was so convenient, the Brooklyn Museum isn't far away, and being able to enjoy TWO concerts in one weekend was such a treat! Waking up after a very good night's...

With a week planned in NYC we wanted to avoid squeezing two adults and two teenagers into a single Manhattan hotel room. The Blue Porch was a great find, excellent value and a comfortable and much more relaxing alternative to a hotel. Trudy and Paul were wonderfully helpful and friendly and provided beautiful breakfasts every morning, including freshly baked gingerbread... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Blue Porch when we went to visit our son and daughter-in-law. We may never stay anywhere else in NY after our visit! Paul and Trudy are wonderful hosts.
