Vetted by our experts

Tucked away on a quiet street in historic Bed-Stuy, Tea Tree Cottage is a garden-level home adorned with the host’s own artwork and lots of wonderful books.

They'll be your go-to for all things New York, as well as any art-related questions you might have. They love hosting and meeting people from all over the world, but they are also happy that they can use this space when friends and family come to town.
