Waterfront Cottage in Queens, New York

Just 45 minutes from downtown Manhattan is a beautiful waterfront cottage, perfect for a serene stay. In our new installment of our Airbnb Dream Rentals series, host Kirby Porterfield takes you inside the Cottage by the water in Queens.

The owners, a husband and wife designer duo, bought the house two years ago and completely renovated it, making it a wonderful getaway. Creating a truly unique space, they filled the house with flea market finds from around the world.

With two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms, the two-story chalet can accommodate up to five people. On the first floor there is a bedroom with two twin beds and a small desk. Upstairs, the spacious mezzanine bedroom which opens onto the living room and the dining room. Next to the downstairs bedroom, the super instagrammable bathroom has bright green botanical wallpaper. In addition, there is a standing shower and a tub next to a giant window.

The open kitchen is equipped with all the essentials, giving you the flexibility to cook meals during your stay. Next to the kitchen is a comfortable seating area with a mounted TV next to the dining area. The focal point of the dining room? The long dining table, which is the oldest room in the house. Surrounded by large windows and glass doors, the dining room offers a magnificent view of the water. Plus, part of the space is actually above the water, so as the owners point out, you’ll feel like you’re on a boat while you eat or work in the dining area. .

Doors from the dining room open onto a terrace, where you can breathe in the fresh air and take a closer look at the surrounding views of neighboring houses and the water. You might even see swans.

While sky-watching is generally difficult to do in New York City, the cabin is a great place to stargazing thanks to its waterfront location. Best of all, the house has seven huge skylights, two above the loft bedroom and five above the dining room. So you can watch the night sky from the comfort of the chalet. Not to mention that a lot of natural light passes through the skylights during the day. Another notable amenity that’s hard to find in the city? Washer and dryer under the stairs.

The subway is only a five-minute walk away, so you can easily visit all of the New York attractions on your list. Ready to go on vacation at the Cottage by the water? Book a stay here.
