At the "Gateway to the Adirondacks", my house is a sweet, lovely home built in 1900. It has the charm of a Nantucket cottage - gray cedar shake siding with white trim. The interior is decorated to reflect warmth and comfort. First floor has a small kitchen with gas range, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffeepot, dishes, cooking & eating utensils; dining room has mahogany table and 4 chairs; livingroom has wool oriental carpet, leather sofa and recliner, flatscreen Smart TV with blue-ray dvd player & cable; reading room with recliner; full bath with shower. The bedroom (upstairs) has a queen bed, closet, and full bath with tub under eaves. The stairs are a little steep and narrow, and not good for anyone with crawling babies or toddlers. Air conditioning (2 window AC units) provide comfort in hot weather. Very warm in winter! Ample parking. Small yard has pleasant outdoor space under tall trees.
Access to all areas. Locked owner closet, garage and basement.
Interaction with guests
House managers, Paul and Suzanne (in cottage across street), will be available to help with problems, provide keys, and answer questions. They are locals who enjoy all the area has to offer, are very social and willing to suggest restaurants, things to do, places to visit - many within walking distance.
Other things to note
The upstairs ceiling height in the center of the house, is 6'2" - it is less under the eaves. Full bath, and main living areas are downstairs. Paul and Suzanne (property managers & neighbors) offer bikes & snowshoes upon request. It's a GREAT neighborhood for biking, and lit X-country trails are 2 1/2 blocks away!
No smoking, and sorry, no pets. Additional overnight guests can be arranged for in advance; there is an air mattress and electric pump if requested. The fireplace is ornamental only, and non-functioning. Please don't burn candles or light fires for any reason (other than cooking on the gas stove). Please keep noise levels within reason out of respect for neighbors. I have steep, narrow stairs, so my house is not suitable for small children or toddlers, as the stairs can be dangerous and the only bedroom is upstairs. Parents MUST supervise children on the stairs. I love my little house and hope you will too - please take care of it as you would your own. One of my recent AirBnB guests burned my formica countertop by placing a very hot pan on it without protection. He would not pay for the damage he caused. AirBnB would not allow me to use my security deposit to replace the 2' section :-( I would ask that you be careful not to damage my home, because AirBnB's policy is IF the object (window, counter, wall, carpet, mattress) is still functional, it is the owner's risk and must be repaired/replaced at the owner's cost. Boo hoo. BE CAREFUL PLEASE AND USE COMMON SENSE!
