Enhanced Clean
This host committed to Airbnb's 5-step enhanced cleaning process.
Rivendell is a magical and peaceful place. You get exclusive use of 9.1 acres and 3 buildings... a private sanctuary full of trees, birds and wildlife, walking paths and a stream at the end of the property. That peace and seclusion comes with minor inconveniences, which include the need to be conservative with electrical use when the sun is not shining, composting toilets, and wood heat. Hughes Net wifi, gas grill & fire pit provided. All linens towels dishes, pots and pans too.

The space
The Main House has a bedroom with a queen bed, a full sized futon couch/ bed in the living room, and a twin bed and high end camping cot in the upstairs turret. There is a woodstove/fireplace for heat. The Cordwood Guest House has two twin beds that can be converted to a king bed, woodstove, electric lights, sink and composting toilet. The strawbale studio has two twin beds, composing toilet but no sink or heat source . I will be happy to answer any questions to make sure Rivendell suits your group's needs.

Where you’ll be

Churubusco, New York, United States

The nearby Marble River (about 4 miles away) is stocked with trout and absolutely beautiful. It is full of grottos and small waterfalls and small rocky cliffs in a Hemlock forest. The area is popular for biking because there are a lot of country roads with very little traffic and it isn't too hilly. Dick's Country Store, famous for having over 1000 Guitars in stock, is also a few miles away. The nearest town, Chateaugay, is about 6 miles away and offers a Stewart's convenience store, a small grocery store and a hardware store for essentials. Major grocery shopping (Price Chopper, Aldi's) is in Malone, about 18 miles away.

    I've been working on restoring Rivendell for the past 5 years, and just finished it. It is a magical and peaceful place. 9.1 acres to yourself, full of trees, lots of birds and wildlife, walking paths and a stream at the end of the property. That peace and seclusion comes with minor inconveniences, which include the need to be conservative with electrical usage when the sun is not shining, composting toilets, wood heat, & no wifi. I hope that will work for you and that you will enjoy your stay.
