If you desire lodging in NYC but not the hustle and bustle of staying in-town or the impersonal feeling of a large hotel, please consider the marvelous Blue Porch Bed and Breakfast in nearby Brooklyn...an easy subway ride away. My husband and I spent two nights over the recent Presidents' Day weekend and can't speak highly enough about our stay with Trudy and Paul. They make you feel right at home and will do whatever to be helpful and show kindness and caring. You will enjoy their delicious breakfasts with fresh fruit and homebaked breads, as well as their wonderful hospitality and comfortable accomodations. We hope to return upon subsequent trips to New York City and hope you will consider staying with Trudy and Paul as well. They make you feel like family!

We've spent one week with our two daughters in NY for Christmas. It was a fantastic week, thanks to the such lovely and calm Blue Porch B&B. Trudy and Paul are so kind and interesting, always trying to find out how to help us with plans and restaurants adresses or new ideas to visit the town. They have such a lovely house, completly restful, with many facilities. The bathrooms are perfect, the beds are fantastic, everything is so clean, and I don't say anything about the breakfast, it will be your surprise if you visit them. OMG ! They've immediately understood our tastes, and they've never tried to influence our choices but they've just gave us the best. Thank you again for this great and new american experience !
Superbe séjour à NY, le B&B est formidable, propre, spacieux, tout équipé (produits de SDB, eau, sèche-cheveux, etc.), très proche du métro. Il y a pas mal de restaus dans le coin, même si Brooklyn vous semble loin de Manhattan, c'est un super quartier qui vaut le coup. Trudy et Paul sont très sympas, très cultivés, et pourvoyeurs de super conseils de visites, de restaurants et autres. Le petit-dej est une tuerie, ne pas manquer les scones à l'aneth, un must !
Nous recommendons absolument cette jolie maison. Merci encore à eux.

We stayed at the Blue Porch ( a Queen Ann style victorian house) for 2 nights and it felt like a wonderful retreat. The house is beautiful and the rooms are tastefully decorated and comfortable. Truly and Paul are intelligent and sensitive hosts who are passionate about caring well for their guests and ensuring hat they have a great stay. They went to a lot of effort to help with finding information for us on trips out in Manhattan and Brooklyn and the breakfast table looked like a "still life" painting. Trudy is an excellent baker and made us the most delicious scones and cakes and freshly prepared fruit plates. The B&B is close to the Metro station and local shops and restaurants and it's interesting to spend time in Brooklyn which has a brilliant museum and botanical garden as well as ingesting buildings. Truly and Paul are kind, warm hearted and caring - go and enjoy!

My wife and I spent two wonderful nights at the Blue Porch B & B in Brooklyn, surprised by the atmosphere of culture provided by the two hosts, both musicians. Apart from our discussions on various topics, were delightfully surprised at the variety of home-baked breads served at breakfast. Reservations should be made as early as possible to book the room with the bathroom on the same floor. We had to take the other room, which also has a separate bathroom, but on the floor below. We certainly will be looking forward to saying there again.

Room Tip: make reservation early to get best room

The Blue Porch Bed and Breakfast is the perfect Brooklyn Retreat. We stayed with Trudy and Paul during a hectic weekend delivering some antique furniture to our daughter who relocated to this lovely Brooklyn neighborhood just a few weeks earlier. The Blue Porch B&B is simply charming and within easy walking distance to fabulous restaurants and the subway if you wish to visit anywhere in the city. Brooklyn has it's own unique charms, cultural events and sites, but it is not so far off the beaten path that you can't easily get to Manhattan and see the sites, too. What is great about Trudy and Paul's B&B is that you feel like you have returned home after all the busy events you choose throughout the day. And, don't be disarmed by their reference to a "continental breakfast". That sometimes means you are on your own with a box of cereal.....Not here! Trudy is a fabulous cook and in addition to the fresh fruits, yogurt, cheeses, artisan breads and preserves, and oatmeal, she makes a mean blueberry cornbread and breakfast biscuits. You will not be disappointed! We will be back!
