My family of 7 just returned from a week in New York where we stayed at Carolyn's place. It was absolutely perfect. There was plenty of space for all of us. The location is also perfect as it is a very short walk to the subway and it was only a 20 minute ride to Midtown. If we ever make it back to New York I would definitely stay here again.
Maria was a great host and we had a wonderful experience staying at the Croton Lodge. The apt was clean and the neighborhood was lovely. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen amenities were exactly as expected. Our son loved having the Xbox and PS4. We rented a car and drove to the Croton dam which was beautiful. We drove into NYC each day and looked forward to returning to the apt each evening. Would definitely stay again!
