It is with regret that I am announcing the temporary closure of the Queen Anne Bed and Breakfast. The challenges of the coronavirus are making it impossible for me to host travelers. For nine years I have been welcoming new and returning guests into my home. It is not the same around here without you. Thank you for your patronage and loyalty. Please note that presently I am not accepting reservations for Binghamton University graduation weekend.

The space
I invite you to be my guest in my period Victorian house, centrally located and close to highways, downtown restaurants, hospitals, and Binghamton University. In the style of a traditional B&B, I serve a healthy breakfast, which requires that I charge NY State sales tax, included in the price. Stay for a week and get a free night. Stay for a month and get a free week. For extended stays I can offer a deeper discount if you make your own breakfast. Inquiries welcome. There is no cleaning fee.

I have two guest rooms at the Queen Anne Bed and Breakfast. This listing is for Room #1, the larger of the two rooms, a sunny space with a pillow-top queen-sized bed. The room also contains a dresser and a small couch. It accommodates two adults, and I can tuck in a cot for a small child. The room is air-conditioned.

My two guestrooms share the full upstairs bathroom, which has an enormous claw foot tub with a hand-held shower head for a sit-down shower. I supply shampoo and a hair dryer for your use, and there is a drawer where you can store personal items while you are visiting. I also have a half-bath off the sitting room downstairs.

I provide an informal, self-serve breakfast--granola or oatmeal, toast, fresh fruit, coffee and tea. I will do my best to satisfy your dietary cravings or restrictions. Weather permitting, you can enjoy coffee or tea in the garden.

I offer wireless Internet access throughout the house, off-street parking, and kitchen privileges. You are always free to brew yourself a cup of coffee or tea. I encourage travel-weary guests to do their laundry and make themselves a home-cooked meal. I also have an iron and an ironing board that you are welcome to use.

My house was built in 1892 for Chester Larrabee, co-owner of the Sturtevant-Larrabee Company, Builders of Fine Carriages and Sleighs. I purchased the house in 1990 from the estate of Helen Larrabee, the youngest of seven children, who lived here her whole life. The house is well-preserved example of the Queen Anne style, with chestnut and oak moldings that have never been painted, pocket doors, three fireplaces, a laundry chute, and potato bins in the pantry. I love sharing this historic gem with my guests

Here is what a recent guest wrote about her stay: "This was my second time with Mary, and it was as wonderful as the first. Hers is a well lived in house, and you feel it the moment you step inside. Mary is much more than a host. She welcomes you into her life as if you were family. Staying with her is not like going away at all. It is more like going home."

Where you’ll be

Binghamton, New York, United States

My house is located in an urban neighborhood close to downtown and very close to bus routes. It is about five miles from Binghamton University, and BU Blue Buses and Binghamton City buses travel to and from there regularly. There are several excellent restaurants within walking distance. I've got menus on hand. You can get more information about them and check out other Binghamton a(EMAIL HIDDEN) For those of you who like to go running or walk your dog, Otsiningo Park is just a short drive away.

I have had a long professional involvement in the world of art and antiques, including an antique frame business. I am a writer and a community activist, and I love to cook and garden. I have a dog and a cat for company, and they enjoy being Airbnb hosts as much as I do.

I moved to my 1892 Queen Anne style house twenty years ago, and I have been renting a bedroom in my house for extra income for years, first to graduate students and commuting faculty members at Binghamton University, with which I have a long association, and now through Airbnb.

During your stay

I make it a point to be home to greet my guests and give them a key, and I am usually available during their stay. I look forward to our having breakfast together. It is one of the most enjoyable parts of being an Airbnb host.
