*MINIMUM AGE REQUIREMENT = 10 YEARS: 1871 House is a converted 146 year old Brownstone. In that it is an historic building constructed in the year 1871 there is no elevator and all suites are accessed by our central open staircase. Regretfully, this feature (the house's unenclosed staircase) makes it unsafe for young children under 10 years of age to stay in the house.

*Prior to making your decision, consider there is NO elevator at the 1871 House. All rooms are accessed via our central staircase.

We typically have a 4-5 night minimum for most advance reservations. Please email us if you want to stay for fewer nights as we have many exceptions.

One flight above our lobby, guests find the romantic studio apartment known as the Front Parlor. The Parlor overlooks a row of East 62nd Street townhouses as elegant as 1871 House itself. Boasting a 12' ceiling, hardwood flooring, three over-sized lace-clad windows, and a classic fireplace mantle, the Parlor, in all its exquisite pre-war detail, extends to nearly 327 square feet.

The furniture, too, consists of carefully curated, individual pieces: an antique 19th century iron bed, resized to queen, an 18th century armoire from France's Provence region, a stylish slip-covered sofa, and an oriental wool rug. The list goes on: you can keep your clothes in a Victorian-era chest of drawers or leave your purse on a circa 1870 American Empire card table. The walls are adorned with reproductions of the prints of Toulouse-Lautrec and others, with a gilded mirror above the fireplace (ornamental only).

The Parlor's en-suite bathroom is simple and clutterless. A pedestal sink accompanies a full size en-suite bathtub with shower.

The butlers pantry is fully equipped with open shelving, a refrigerator/freezer, microwave and toaster oven, sink, electric coffeemaker and kettle. Dishes are provided. Adjacent to the kitchenette is a round marble bistro table and chair set.

1871 House is a charming Brownstone Townhouse which consists of seven generously sized apartment-style suites housed in a classic 19th-century brownstone on an inviting, tree-lined residential street near Central Park, shopping and museums. The turn-of-the-century brownstone townhouse in the Lenox Hill neighborhood, brings bed-and-breakfast-style and quaintness to the busy city. Enjoy views of beautiful East 62nd Street or serene garden views from your own private terrace.

Uniquely, 1871 House offers both the intimacy of a Bed and Breakfast & the privacy of a traditional hotel, perfect for your extended stay on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. A stay at 1871 feels much like time spent in a personal Manhattan apartment. Suites in our New York City bed and breakfast include beautiful queen beds, kitchens, private bathrooms, hardwood floors and modern amenities such as wi-fi and flat-screen tv’s.

The house is located steps from Central Park, Bloomingdales, Madison Avenue Shopping, excellent dining, cafes & specialty shops & is ideally located near Midtown Manhattan. We're convenient to several world renown Museums & galleries such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMA and the Frick Museum.For more comprehensive information about our charming brownstone building please visit our website, www.1871house.com.
