EXPERIENCE NEW HAVEN DIFFERENTLY IN FAIR HAVEN.
This is a quiet location in a busy town along the Q River. But New Haven is a city: people live here, work here, and do interact with each other. Here, we just choose to celebrate our diversity. I host because I love New Haven and I want people to experience something that hotels and tourism offices downtown won't share with you! I greet my guests in person to establish trust and explain what's special about the house. This is not a hotel.
This cottage is not suitable for small children or people with mobility issues. The stairs are steeps. Review all pictures.
Built in 1900, this house is a piece of New Haven Quinnipiac river waterfront history. The New Haven oyster industry was a major enterprise in the last quarter of the nineteenth century and in the early years of the twentieth century.

Sit in the backyard and watch the birds in the tall trees. Walk down the street to look at historic houses, and watch the boats at the marina, rent a canoe or kayak to experience our beautiful river, check out the antique store across the street open on weekends, get a bottle of wine at classy Grand Vin across the historic Grand Avenue bridge.
Relax in the cozy living room, lots of books available to you. There is a desk if you need to work. Iron table and iron available if you need to get ready for an interview or business meeting.
New Haven has lots of restaurant to choose from, especially downtown. But diversity is also offered in our Fair Haven neighborhood. Along the busy and eclectic Grand avenue, you'd find bakeries, and small eateries, with delicious sandwiches, pastries, and hot meals, of Italian and Latin flavors. We'll share our favorite addresses with you.
Ask questions, and we'll try to answer them. I just want you to enjoy your stay, whatever the reasons you have to come to town.
I will be your host and will get you oriented upon arrival, providing a peace of mind. We live a few houses down the street. Check out the profile and review pages for more information about my management style.
Stay in your own space, cook your own meals, enjoy your privacy in the entire house. Relax in the peaceful backyard with beautiful trees. There are 2 bedrooms, an office space, river views. All furnished. Sorry no TV, by design. Parking for 2 cars.
I greet my guests with a smile at their arrival and welcome them to the neighborhood and New Haven at large! I share information as needed, and answer questions. I give them privacy and hey enjoy a safe stay and treat the house as if it were their own. They leave the place the way they found it, neat, and well organized.
The Quinnipiac river historic neighborhood is one of the most overlooked neighborhoods of New Haven. Diversity of people and birds. City life with proximity to shops on Grand Avenue, and beautiful natural open spaces.
Our bridge is an "asymetrical steel swing bridge". This side of town next to the Q river, also called Fair Haven, is beautiful, rich in history, cultures, arts, family-friendly, community-oriented, and safe. Parks, restaurants, shops, schools. People live here, work here, and do interact with each other.

I am Nathalie. I am French-American, originally from Languedoc, France. I moved to this country 20ish years ago for my work in biomedical research. My husband, Don, is a designer and a Renaissance man. Together we are like bees, always busy building things bigger than ourselves.
We enjoy our family, friends, and each other's company, good conversation and pretty things, like guitars, trombones, dragonflies, birds, rivers and and trees. We like Jazz, books, listening to the birds, watching the sun rise and making a difference in our community.
Neither of us like rude people but we will go out of our way for people we love and genuine people we don't really know.
We host on Airbnb because we wish to share our love for the city of New Haven and for its Quinnipiac River history and waterfront.
