Keycode entry

This cozy room has an old fashioned bunk bed.

Perfect for long-distance travelers or week stay Dreamspark/CASV parents.

WIFI and Verizon booster service. You'll be stepping back into a 12 year old's baseball room!

The space

The Baseball room is a snug little room at the top of the stairs with a key-lock door for your belongings. Just enough room to drop your things and go exploring! There's a creek down the road, and the chickens love posing for pictures.

Guest access

The entire house. TV, wifi, computer , games, bathroom, laundry, stove, coffee pot, drinks, fridge (ok, within reason!) I can provide meals at whatever level needed: snacks, continental or full breakfast, dinner, grill, and will provide a price list for all at your request.

Other things to note

WIFI, but only Verizon service via booster.

Country roads, PRINT your directions TO and FROM venue. Getting lost in the dark is common. Spotty service throughout county, GPS will drop out.

I leave doors open for breeze in summer, using a/c minimally. Flying things are common.

Bathroom IS shared. Has not been a problem yet, even with a full house.

My son and I was looking for a place to sleep, refresh, and relax at the end of the day. We were there for 5 nights. Melissa was very hospitable and accommodating. She interacts as little or as much as you prefer. The room we stayed in was small but we were comfortable. The only downfall was that we stayed upstairs and the bathroom was downstairs. Even with a full house, sharing one bathroom was not a problem. If we needed to return in the area again, I would book with Melissa.

melissa is a great host. the house is secluded, quiet and perfect for anyone who wants a getaway. my buddy and i were shooting a wedding in nearby laurens, so the location was perfect for us. the house is close to oneonta and cooperstown. melissa was very fluid with communication and accommodated our wonky schedule with ease. we originally booked a smaller room with two beds, but melissa upgraded us for free to a bigger room with two beds, which was awesome! (thanks again!) we're extremely grateful for her hospitality! we definitely highly recommend the house on high street. cheers!

Great place for my friend I to crash after a concert at the Ommegang Brewery in Cooperstown. Melissa was a great host, very helpful and easy to communicate with. Super nice experience, Melissa was even kind enough to mail me some clothes I left at her house!

Thanks Janis! I just put the bunks up, and noticed that awkward spacing myself. I will address.

I stayed in the baseball room. This is a basic, comfortable, quiet room for one person.

As little or much as you'd like. I can entertain you in my home, or I can retire to my Studio above the barn.

About Melissa

Kids are gone & I'm left in a big house in the country. Won't you share it with me? Rolling fields, creek down the street, central to numerous venues. 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!
