Property Details

Updated: Mar 28, 2015
Bed and Breakfast Style Accommodations on East 62nd Street ** Sleeps 1-5 **

Accommodations in the romantic style of a bed and breakfast. The elegant turn-of-the-century brownstone is located on East 62nd Street between Park and Lexington Avenue within the historic district of the Upper East. Luxurious Madison Avenue boutiques as well as fine dining and world-renowned museums and cultural institutions surround the house. Central Park is two blocks away. For guests here on business, the house is ideally located near Midtown Manhattan as well as 7 subway lines and Grand Central Station. The 5-story brownstone house contains a total of 7 charming suites - 11 bedrooms in total. We encourage you to review our comprehensive website, www.1871house.com, for further details and photos.

The approximate rate range for our full-floor suites (all with private en-suite bathroom) is $345-$685 per night. Rates may be higher or lower depending on the total length of your stay, # of persons to be accommodated as well as how far in advance you are making the reservation. The low end of this rate range is applicable for our least expensive suite option for last minute inquiries or for low season dates. Our lowest rate is also offered for extended stays, for specific existing gap dates in between longer occupancy periods as well as for shorter stays that fall back to back with other reservations already in place on non-weekend nights. Rates for high-season periods and holidays are at the high end of the rate range. There is rate variation within months. Potential rate flexibility is date specific. Minimum night stay requirement varies throughout the year. One, two and three-night stays available for last minute inquiries and for gap periods as well as non-weekend dates that fall back to back with reservations in place. Multiple room reservations & larger group size and holidays may require longer stays. The maximum travel group size that we can comfortably accommodate is generally no more than 6-8 persons. Please send us a general inquiry so that we can send you an exact rate quote.

Offset on a side townhouse block within Manhattan’s fashionable Upper East Side, the pretty shuttered townhouse is in a nicely quiet location two blocks from Central Park. The quiet street makes you forget you’re in the heart of the city.

Rooms offer high ceilings, ornamental fireplaces, and four-poster beds covered by quilts, marble-topped dressers and lace-curtained windows. Fireplace mantles, moldings around windows and high ceilings have been preserved. All give the place an elegant B&B feel, as do the antiques scattered throughout. Rooms are modernly enough appointed that you won't feel stuck in the 19th century. Each room is quite large, cozy and country furnished.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The staff was wonderful and the room looked exactly as it was pictured! I checked all of the reviews before I booked and thank all who have posted. Someone mentioned that the bathroom they had was old. Well, yes, it is, but I have a one hundred year old house so it didn't faze me and on balance, everything is so clean and so charming...and, the neighborhood is wonderful, an old bathroom is a fair trade!!!!!! I used to live in Manhattan in the 1970s and have stayed in hotels on visits since then. So cold and sterile! Now that I've found the 1871 House, I would never go back to a hotel...and, can't wait to return!

Favorite NYC B&B

Favorite NYC B&B

This is by far my favorite hotel in NYC! The location is great, only a few blocks from Bloomingdales, Saks, great shops on Third Avenue and Central Park as well as many of my favorite restaurants and museums. The rooms are comfortable and beautiful. The large armoire, spectacular bed and beautiful area rugs are classic and a great change from the cookie cutter rooms at most hotels.

I always feel special staying in a grand brownstone in an incredible neighborhood! The inn keepers are always helpful and friendly and my family insists we return annually! My daughter loves the location and proximity to Dylan's Candy while my husband likes the quiet neighborhood and proximity to mid town business.

I highly recommend this inn!!!!

1871 House surpassed our expectations. The staff was helpful when needed, the room had everything you needed and room to be in. The experience was exactly what we wanted, to feel like we lived there and experience the life. The subway to get everywhere you need to go is two blocks down, central shopping, the park for walking. It was the best vacation I've taken and the 1871 House was a huge part of that.

Upper East Side Pied-a-terre Living with boutique hotel amenities!

  • 5 of 5
I was delighted to discover the 1871 House on my last trip into NYC. Located on one of the most charming blocks on the upper east side, this beautiful property is convenient to everything the city has to offer. It is private and cozy enough to feel like a home away from home while having all the amenities of an upscale boutique hotel. The small suite I had was equipped with everything and beautifully appointed with the antiques and wonderful linens. Located between Park and Lexington, the atmosphere is serene and quiet while being just steps away from all Manhattan has to offer. I'm in the city at least once a month and now that I've found this gem, I look forward to returning again and again! For business or pleasure, it's the best location in the city!

This is a great old New York building with all the charm and quirks you would expect. If you want location, this is it. Perfect for a single person traveling alone. Safe, lots of great restaurants where a table for one is no big deal. Two blocks from the Zoo and Central Park walking paths. Few block from subway station. However, if you are considering booking the Front Library Room, be sure the tub hot water nozzle has been fixed, and that the windows will open and stay open (had to prop mine with books). Bathroom is very very small, even for a petite woman like myself. Be aware E62 St. at Lexington is a very busy intersection and the noise level can get quite loud. Consider a room that does not face the street, although more expensive.

Wonderful!

My husband and I spent our 25th Wedding anniversary in New York and I cannot think of a better place to stay than the 1871 house! We stayed in the Parlor Room. It was comfortable, and well stocked. We enjoyed the neighborhood and found it convenient to have a grocery just down the street. There are many restaurants in the area - just walk 1/2 block in any direction! -- close to subway, close to Central Park. I felt I got a very good feeling of living in Manhattan -- loved the Upper East Side! The description is accurate, the room is exactly as photographed. I would recommend the 1871 House to anyone wanting a neighborhood stay in Manhattan.

Location

From the Owner

The best thing about Manhattan is being within walking distance of so many incredible sites! We chose the Upper East Side because it is leafy, romantic, and genteel, with peaceful streets and historic architecture. It couldn't be a better place to hang your hat! The location is also perfect for its proximity to Central Park, fantastic shopping and NY Culture. The House is within walking distance of Central Park, Fifth Avenue, Rockefeller Center, Carnegie Hall, boutiques, museums & galleries, New York’s finest department stores, top restaurants and business districts. In addition, for everyday convenience, we have barbershops, supermarkets, gourmet stores, pharmacies, dry cleaning & shoe repair shops just around the corner. Access to seven subway lines are one or to blocks away. Museums within walking distance include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, MoMA, Frick Collection, and the Asia Society. Shopping Excellence: Lauren, Versace, Barneys, Chanel, Hermes, Prada, Burberrys, Bergdorf Goodman's and the like are all nearby.

Celebrity sightings and Gossip Girl shoots may be regular occurrences around the Upper East Side, but the neighborhood's real appeal emerges from its refined character. Home to some of the City's finest museums, restaurants and shops, as well as the stately mansions and statuesque apartment houses where New York's elite have lived for generations, the Upper East Side exudes elegance on every block. Museum Mile—which runs along Fifth Avenue between East 82nd and East 105th Streets—boasts nine world-class cultural institutions, while Madison Avenue teems with the biggest names in haute couture, both in designer boutiques and at high-end resale shops that sell stylish brands at nearly half-price. When hunger strikes, you can choose from everything from down-home diners to posh restaurants to some of the City's most renowned Japanese sushi spots. Kids and grown-ups alike delight in some of the City's best ice cream sundaes after a day spent meeting exotic wildlife at Manhattan's only zoo. As elegant and historic as it is cutting-edge and exciting, the Upper East Side is a must-see neighborhood that truly offers something for everyone.
