Global luxury Ambassador Pritan Ambroase stayed at the Gnome House recently with his family and was absolutely delighted. “The Gnome House is the ultimate destination in NYC given its uniqueness, it IS the house from the movie “UP”. The architecture of the Gnome House is simply fantastic, a luxury cabin in the midst of Manhattan that is beautifully decorated, resourcefully spaced yet practical in all the thoughtful details, such as its ergonomic seating and exquisite paintings by esteemed artists John Aquilino and Beth Bogla. It is perfect for all seasons. This is by far the most unique and magical establishment I have ever stayed in during my time in the city. It definitely calmed me down and I did not even have to leave the city for it.”

The Gnome House boasts original architecture by Steven Gibson and Brian O’Connor. Interior design by Deborah Emery of Emery Design. The attention to comfortable seating is the result of the owner, world-renowned Chiropractor, Dr. David J. Rowe’s life long pursuit of ergonomic design.
