The House on High Street-Green Room

House - Private room · High Street, Garrattsville, NY 13342, United States

I have a quaint home in the country that I am renting out. The downstairs Green Room rents for:

$100 single occupancy
$35 additional PERSON, 2 max. for this room.

$120 single occupancy
$35 additional people

Wifi service, can arrange foodservice.

The Space

The Green Room is downstairs. It has a double bed, dresser, closet, two comfy chairs, and is decorated in not your typical upstate decor. Piano in dining room. Basketball hoop in drive, gym in barn, running routes. Beautiful area, close to many venues: Unadilla Raceway (Zombie Run), Fly Creek Cider Mill, Ommegang and Butternuts Breweries. Beautiful place to relax. I want to do SOOO much more, will you help me?

Guest Access

Keycode entry. Code will be texted after payment arrangements have been made. Guests in my home are welcome to use it as their own. I ask that any computer usage be limited to not downloading and going to various inappropriate sites. Cook as you like, clean up after yourself, and if you empty something, refill it. I can be talked into yummy food creation, just ask!

Interaction with Guests

To their liking. I have a studio above my barn, and can disappear completely should whole house privacy be needed. I am very friendly and would love any piano players to engage the house in song! Communication is key I have found. I can "serve" the guests should they require it, offering suggestions on the area, at an additional charge.

The Neighborhood

I love that I can walk or run a 1.5 mile circle, and hop in the creek on my way back! I also love that when you stay with me, you can "meet your meal." I use meat, eggs, milk, veggies and cheese from local producers,compost all leftover food, and always stop to see Esther the local Amish woman who makes and sells the breads I use for French Toast. She also makes a yummy blueberry pie.

Getting around

Yes we have transportation. It's called your feet. We are 20 minutes from any real life (WalMart), but you can get "quickie" things, gas and cash at the store down the hill. If a cow gets out of her pen, I guess you could saddle her up and ride her "into town?"

Other Things to Note

I make every effort to make my home a "destination location." I enjoy cooking and serving at an extra charge. I compost, grow my own herbs, lemon balm, American and German Oregano, Parsley, Cilantro, Basil, and Dill, and raise my own chickens for eggs. As one guest stated, "It's not the Taj Mahal," but it's my home and I'd love the opportunity to share it with you!

  • It was a joy to meet Melissa after a very long day driving to an area foreign to us. She made us feel relaxed as soon as we walked into her house and we enjoyed a delicious homemade spaghetti supper that she prepared for us. After we told her about our unsuccessful venture coming all the way from Ormstown, Quebec to find a Morgan horse at a local horse farm, she made some calls and came with us to see an older gentleman who had some wonderful Morgan horses for sale. We had a very enjoyable evening with the gentleman and his Morgans, and got to know a little about the beautiful area her house is located in. It was a real treat to see the golden greens of the little valleys below the wooded hills in the early dusk. After a restful and comfortable night, we left knowing that we have found a great place to stay on our next visit. This is what airbnb is all about. Had we stayed at a stale hotel or motel along a highway we would have returned home disappointed and discouraged with our trip, and would probably never have returned to the area. Instead we had a fantastic time “staying like a local” in Melissa’s house and we look forward to staying at her house again.

  • I arrived at Melissa's home Saturday August 3rd, 2013 with three of my riding partners and stayed for one night as part of a weekend motorcycle tour of upstate NY. Melissa responded to all emails, phone calls and text messages promtly. The home is easy to find and located near two dream parks. The home itself has six beds and two couches and space for additional sleeping bags etc. We arrived in the evening and Melissa had already started cooking our first of two meals. We parked all four of bikes in the barn. We ate diner outside; local steak on the grill, local bread, corn, salad, local pie made fresh. The steak was exceptional delicious! Hot water for showering plus towels. Melissa retired to her studio above the shed/barn and we had the place to ourselves for the evening. Next morning I ventured downstairs from the bedroom and found Melissa was hard working on the breakfast meal; french toast, coffee, eggs anyway you like with anything you like. Melissa told me speficially that providing quality customer service to us was of importance to her. I can say the care we received was very good. Her home is equiped with wifi, lodgin and meal rates reasonable. What more do you want? Thanks again Melissa see you again sometime.
