Empower your creative spirit to live freely. Experience the essence of home wherever you go.


After launching the first residence concept in Brooklyn, NY in 2018, Guesthouse has grown into a collection of artfully-designed and curated residences inspired by the originality of the communities and scenes that surrounds us. Each residence is designed to feel minimal yet functional, familiar and welcoming — like a home that was created with you in mind.


Our Why

Guesthouse is a part of a larger umbrella that's reshaping the hospitality industry. From operations management to design and development services, we are bridging the gap between functionality, inspiration, and the human experience. Our why is to create unforgettable member experiences while contributing and collaborating with our local community. Comfort and connection are found in the simplicity and intentionality of our design, and that’s exactly where we want to take you.

Our Purpose

At Guesthouse, we believe in the importance of human connection. From our team to our partners and emerging local artists, building relationships with like-minded individuals, including our members, is at the heart of our philosophy. Through our residences, furnishings, and the stories behind them, we invite you on an inspirational journey. Through Guesthouse, you are joining a larger collective where art and creativity thrive, and each member contributes to something greater.

Impact Approach

We are not only building for the future, we are creating it. Because of this, we understand the responsibility of our impact: economically, socially, racially, and environmentally. From identifying product partners who prioritize their sustainability practices for a better environment, working with vendors who emphasize their ethical practices for a more conscious and just future, and identifying and supporting emerging local artists who identify as Black, Latinx, Asian, Native American/Native Hawaiian, and LGBTQIA+. We believe that impact is building something bigger than ourselves.

Looking Forward

We are not a startup or a corporation. We are a local business with a handful of investors who helped make our vision a reality. You won't find our brand plastered on billboards or social media because we believe our work sells itself. Because of this, we solely rely on our reputation for word-of-mouth and organic referrals to grow our business. If you or someone you know are interested in collaborating, working, investing, or chatting with us, we'd love to hear from you. Big things are on the horizon. The best is yet to come.
