About this listing
This bright, cheery room will be the highlight of your visit! Birds chirping in the morning, the beautiful views, a country respite for those used to the hustle and bustle of the city! Dreamspard and C'town All-Star Village friendly. Wifi & Verizon
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, pond. Beautiful area, close to many venues: Unadilla Raceway (Zombie Run), Fly Creek Cider Mill, Cooperstown Hall of Fame, The two Cooperstown Dreamsparks, Ommegang Brewery for concerts, and Butternuts Brewery is right down the road. Beautiful place to relax.
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.
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.
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!
Respectfully and communicative. Please smoke outside. Please don't take food into rooms, in the sticks, critters don't like the cold and food draws them in. BYOB and drink responsibly.
About the Host, Melissa

The Baseball Hall of Fame, Cooperstown Dreamspark & the Cooperstown All-Star Village, Glimmerglass Opera, Brewery Ommegang & their concert series as well as the Foothills Performing Arts center. The Unadilla Motocross racetrack, is down the road, and the Fly Creek Cider Mill, Butternuts Brewery & the Beverage Trail. Relaxing country setting, with a non-traditional decor. I love cooking & would love to make you a meal or breakfast made from my own chickens eggs! Wi-Fi & cell service, so you can stay I touch if you need to. Come hop in the creek! You won't regret it! I can get by with some Spanish & even remember most of my finger-spelling letters!
