Nestled on 3 acres of woods with 2 creeks running through the property, our 2 level house is quiet, spacious, cozy and private. When you reserve, you actually have the entire lower floor (no shared space). Convenience is an understatement. "Downtown" Alfred, Alfred State, Alfred University are all within easy walking distance. We are 40 minutes from the Finger Lakes wine country, Letchworth State Park (the “Grand Canyon of the East”) is less than an hour away, and Watkins Glen is under 2 hours.

The space
CORONAVIRUS UPDATES: As past reviews show, we receive "5 stars" for cleanliness. Due to COVID - 19, we have expanded our efforts even more, carefully following CDC and Airbnb guidelines. All surfaces/objects that can be touched have been wiped with strong but safe disinfectants. Following guest departures, we run air cleaners located in each bedroom . As always, all linens/towels are absolutely clean. We guarantee we are virus free, taking great care to stay healthy. In turn, we ask that our guests also guarantee they are healthy, coronavirus free and have followed CDC guidelines: wearing masks in public places, washing hands frequently, practicing social distancing, etc. If you cannot give us this guarantee, please book elsewhere. We happily will authorize Airbnb to give you a full refund if you have already booked with us.
------
Beyond the above, we want you to be comfortable and have the extra security that you are safe. We do not do multiple bookings (no shared space with others). You are the only one(s) on the lower (Airbnb) level of our home while we are on the upper level. The two floors are accessible to each other via an open stairwell but during this time of extra caution, we practice social distancing with our guests.

Under normal circumstances, our guests are invited to join us for coffee and birdwatching upstairs if they wish. Also, in the past guests have been able to enjoy our private membership at Foster Lake (see picture gallery). However, due to COVID, neither of these can be done at this time We hope you can come back in the future to take advantage of both. Foster Lake has beautiful hiking, and depending on the season, possible swimming and kayaking.

We have books, children's toys, games and puzzles galore. For TV watchers, we have DirectTV, Netflix, Amazon Prime and other options (remote devices are cleaned with disinfectant).

Guests have access to their own (small size) refrigerator, microwave, toaster and hot water pot. The entire breakfast nook and all appliances are wiped with disinfectant prior to guest arrivals. For breakfast, fresh fruits, bagels, granola, yogurt, etc. are provided along with freshly ground high quality coffee, tea and juice.

Guest access
If needed and upon request, a washer and dryer can be made available.

Other things to note
We have 2 bedrooms, the larger one for either singles or couples and another with a twin bed - enough sleeping/bed space for 3 total. If requested, we might be able to accommodate an additional guest ($15 extra charge; be sure to ask 1st). Our children are no longer at home but many of their toys remain along with puzzles, games and many volumes of books appealing to all ages. All are available to our guests.

Location

Alfred, New York, United States

We are ideally situated on the edge of town (property is adjacent to the Alfred State Campus), far enough away for peaceful solitude and close enough for very easy and quick walking access to everything Alfred has to offer.
