About the Homestay
Founded and run by acclaimed American soprano Lauren , Music and Mentoring House provides extremely affordable housing located in a historic 155 year old wooden house in the heart of New York City's vibrant Harlem. Used predominantly as a place for students of all disciplines studying in New York City, Music and Mentoring often has available beds for New York City visitors. The house is a beautiful civil war era house with plenty of room and easy access to any NYC transportation.
I live here full time and am available to help any one find their way through New York City and to make suggestions for local eateries and area attractions.
A light breakfast is available every day and includes fresh fruit, breads, cereal, coffee and tea. I am a terrific baker and so very often there is an assortment of baked goods available as well.

We had a lovely stay with Lauren. She has a beautiful home and was a great source of information and advice. Her garden is a lovely sanctuary from the busy pace of NYC. The location was certainly convenient, only a short walk from 2 subway stations. It was also very special to stay with other artists following their passions. We hope to return some day.
An amazing with an amazing woman thanks Lauren I will miss you !
My son Teije (12yrs) and I had such a lovely stay with Lauren. The house is very charming and decorated with great taste. Lauren is a vibrant, creative, caring and helpful person and we really enjoyed her lovely breakfasts. My son loved the crowd on four legs (Seamus and Deev) and he played a lot with Seamus the dog. The neighbourhood is calm and the house is just a few blocks from the subwaystation. Lauren made our stay unforgettable and we surely be back one day. We couldn't have found a better place for us in NY.
We had a great stay with Lauren. She is a great personality! The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. We had a lot of interesting conversations with her. Lauren was genuinely helpful during our stay.
This beautiful wooden house is located 5 min walk to the metro station and to the shopping mall area. The room was perfect, spacious and very clean. Breakfast was just excellent!
We will definitely come back if we are ever in the neighborhood again!
