Dorothy was very accommodating in letting us check-in early (after a red eye flight) and having the home cleaned and ready for us. The home is older but everything is clean and in working order so no complaints. Window AC in the bedroom and living room kept us nice and cool (it was a very hot weekend). We were fortunate that this was 1 mile from the wedding we were attending (at the Foundry Suites) and there was an Italian festival going on within walking distance (we miss east coast Italian food). Overall, a quick but great stay!
Great place to stay. Quite and convenient place. Definitely will recommend to friends!
Thanks for the warm welcome, and the very comfortable stay. The small rabbits in the back yard were a treat to behold.
it was fun. we came mostly for the falls which was awesome !!! Dorothy knew a lot about the area and she was always there for anything we needed.
A lovely stay at Dorothy's home. A comfortable, small, cozy older house I was able to call home for a few months. Many amenities. Dorothy was a very kind host and helpful with all needs. She responded promptly with any issues. Continuously kept in contact and she really went the extra mile to make my stay comfortable. Great location. Extremely accommodating, would surely return. Note for info: I didn't have a car and found no trouble traveling by foot. All needs-hospital/parks/entertainment/food/ supermarkets etc could all be reached within 1/2 hr walk or less. I have 2 children and found this home perfect for our needs.
Very nice, quiet apartment in a beautiful neighborhood near all of the great shops and food on Hertel! Perfect location for our trip with exactly the amenities we needed!

About the Host, Dorothy
I love my curly hair, my grandchildren, camping, birds, wildlife and gardening. My favorite thing about hosting on airbnb is meeting people from all over the world. It is so nice to see my guests enjoy their stay at the apartment enjoy the back deck and yard. I smile the most when I give a tour of the area or a shopping trip at the local Wegman's grocery store.
