I happen to be searching for a place to stay in New York this summer while I take some professional courses at NYU for my company in July. I also happen to look for awesome rental cabins when I need a mental escape (I think this will become a regular feature topic). The former is how I stumbled upon A Cabin in a Loft on this amazing travel website, http://www.airbnb.com. Owned by Terri, an artist, architect, designer living in Brooklyn with the creatively achieved idea of renting out part of her cool home to guests by building a cabin within her industrial loft in a former textile factory building. She designed and built the spaces herself!
Inside the ‘cabin’ (above) has windows that open out onto the main living space (below)
Here’s a view of Terri’s room, ‘the treehouse’ (above, which is also available for rent if you rent the entire loft) and from ‘the treehouse’ (below)
Terri actually lives in the loft, too, so I imagine things get a little cozy. It definitely would be too much for my husband, dog, and myself to share the space with Terri and her friendly cat for a whole month, but I could see it being very fun under different circumstances. Alas, the search continues, but you could stay in this awesome place (and tell me how great it was!)…
rates are $115/single $130/double per night or $2636 for a month breakfast included.
Needless to say, I LOVE this concept!
