Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Adventurous space five miles from our favorite hiking place with waterfalls - Plotter Kill preserve. Close to Downtown Schenectady, Union College, SCCC and ViaPort. Albany, Saratoga Springs, Altamont are in driving distance. Public transportation is within a block, Albany airport is fifteen minutes away, downtown Schenectady many nightlife spots close by, park has free swimming. We have a large yard, private parking. Great restaurants gas station around the corner. Close to I890 and I88.

The space
Upstairs private room with full size bed and a nice sized closet. Showcasing waterfalls in NY this room is located at the back of the house and is one of largest and quietest rooms in the house. The larger window overlooking a small alley lets in a nice amount of light and the smaller window catches the first rays of the sun in the morning. There are drawers under the bed, a dresser, full closet and a small couch. The shared restroom is next to the room and a second half bath is available on the first floor off the kitchen. Please see our "Historic Bellevue Victorian Cottage" and “Charming Victorian Cottage Room” listing for other spaces and more reviews. We have two loud macaw parrots that love to come visit our guests and don’t like to be touched. They will knock and the door and say hello and if you open the door will climb up on the bed.

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, no food upstairs. You can store and consume food downstairs. Thank you. The birds are sweet and best left alone. They may warm up to you in a couple days. There’s a green T stand that you can have them “step up” onto and use to move them.

Other things to note
Large mostly fenced in yard gives this house a bit of a country feel in the middle of a city. We also have a few different pets - a white mini Rex bunny, a hedgehog, a talkative cockatiel, and two temperamental macaw parrots. One room in the house is used for a balloon business.

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.
