Welcome to the beautiful Sylvan Terrace! Built in the 1800s across from the Morris-Jumel Mansion (best known as the headquarters of President George Washington during the Revolutionary war) this private cobblestone street is lined on each side by 20 identical rowhouses. Perched on the border of Harlem, Sylvan Terrace is an oasis in a lively, diverse neighborhood and was also abode to some of the most talented jazz musicians and African American artists during the Harlem Renaissance including Paul Robeson, Duke Ellington, Langston Hughes and many more. Designated a historical landmark in the 1970s, there is nowhere in New York like it.
Run as a small, family business- the Sylvan Heights Guest House has been a home away from home for independent, fun loving travelers from far and wide for the last three years. We hope it will be the same for you. We rent a the two bedroom duplex apartment as well as a ground floor studio. Both are readily accessible to public transportation connecting you to the city center within minutes.
