Close to Downtown Schenectady, Union College, SCCC and ViaPort Mall. Albany, Saratoga Springs and Altamont are in driving distance. Public transportation is within a block, Albany airport is fifteen minutes away, downtown Schenectady many nightlife spots only a couple miles away, local park offers free swimming. We have a large yard, private parking. Great family restaurants, convenience store and gas station around the corner. My place is good for solo adventurers. Close to I890 and I88.

The space
Upstairs walk through bedroom finished specifically for guests. The single bed with a memory foam mattress is tucked into nook on side of stairs leading to attic. The stairs are used regularly for a PRIVATE attic bedroom (The attic is NOT open to guests) however there is a curtain spanning the room for complete privacy. The door is shared for this room and the attic. There's a small closet and some storage under the stairs, a small dresser and a comfy chair. Shared bathroom is at the end of a short hall and there is a second half bathroom available on the main floor. All bedrooms for the family are on the second floor. The attic is used for a private family member bedroom and gets minimal traffic. The house is a fixer upper and there are some areas that are waiting for repairs. Please feel free to check out our "Charming Victorian Cottage Room" and “Waterfall Victorian Cottage Room” also for more private options. Note: We do have a large, noisy, temperamental macaw that take a couple days to get used to new guests. The macaw does bite if bothered.

Guest access
Guests are welcome to use the kitchen, extra bathroom, dining room, sitting room, laundry, porch and yard. There is private off street parking. We enjoy interacting with our guests and want you to make yourself at home while you are staying. We do NOT have tv or cable however there is wifi. Please leave the animals alone. We can introduce them to you when we are home. The macaws take a couple days to get used to people so please leave them alone.

Other things to note
As noted in description this room does have stairs used for a PRIVATE attic bedroom with a curtain spanning the space to provide complete privacy. Please do not go up there! Large mostly fenced in yard gives this house a bit of a country feel in the middle of the city. We also have a few different pets - one mini rex bunny, a macaw and a hedgehog. One room in the house is used for a balloon business. The macaw parrot does bite. They are curious and want to meet you but don’t want to be touched. They take a couple days to warm up. They are a lot of fun however they are best left alone.

Schenectady, New York, United States

Nice neighborhood in Bellevue portion of the city of Schenectady. There is a great diner across the street, convenience store, family dollar, Chinese restaurant and gas station in short walking distance. The bus stop is on the corner. Within one mile there are two parks (one with a pool), Subway, Dunkin Donuts, McDonald's, and a library. A small mall with aquarium, BJ's, Office Depot and Dollar Tree are a short 1.5 mile drive. Downtown Schenectady is approximately two miles away and has many restaurants, Union College, SCCC, Proctors theater and a couple museums. Fun place on its own. We have a great waterfall hiking place about eight miles away. Also fun to visit is the Erie Canal which has a paved bike path running next to it. Easy day visits to Saratoga Springs, Lake George, Albany and Crossgates Mall. We are a couple hours from many Adirondack mountains and Catskill Mountains.

Active family of four that loves to hike, paddle and visit new places. Favorite food is Mexican however we enjoy a wide variety of cuisines. When we host we treat people as much like family as we can. We've had people from Germany, Spain, France, Denmark, China, and Thailand and many other places. When friends are in town we open our home to them. We own a small balloon business and enjoy putting together complex balloon designs. There’s always something happening. Feel free to jump in and have an adventure with us.
