About this listing
A couple spare rooms in a house in the apple growing region of central new york (just a scooch south of Syracuse) located near some of the nicer places to ride a bike (if you like scenery and hills)
A great place to crash if going into town for any of the bicycle races held in and around Syracuse
There are also many excellent places to hike located nearby, such as Highland Forest, and Tinker's Falls in the Labrador unique area
Located practically next door to Beak and Skiff Apple Orchard, and just around the corner from their apple vodka distillery and apple winery.
One room has a normal bed the other has a pull out sofa, air mattresses are available as well
I'm pretty flexible, mainly I just ask that the dog be kept inside if he didn't go to work with me. Also If using the kitchen please tidy up after.
My daughter and I recently stayed at Wesley's home in the countryside just south of Syracuse. A stone's throw from an apple orchard offering food/beverage and live music. We enjoyed our short stay at Wesley's place. We chose it in part because of its proximity to the Syracuse Jazz Festival (which we highly recommend - we saw Aretha Franklin and Lake Street Dive for free). Leslie and his partner Morgan were extremely hospitable. They provided good suggestions for things to do in the area as well as pancakes + eggs + coffee/tea in the morning coupled with good company over breakfast. Wesley's home is very clean and they make you feel at home. Very friendly dog and cat.
Wes was a great host! Friendly and gave great directions. His dog was fun to play with. We enjoyed having fresh eggs for breakfast!
I had an excellent stay with Wesley, while not at home when I arrived he was very prompt in replying and giving me directions.
The room and bed were very comfortable and the bathroom clean. We ended up chatting away while swapping distilled goodies.
Wes and Morgan have a very comfortable home. They are very accommodating and gracious. I have a wonderful2 nights at their home. Highly recommended.
Wesley and Morgan are very welcoming and friendly. I felt comfortable staying in their home. It is definitely in a remote area- a solid 25-30 minutes from Syracuse. But close to plenty of orchards and a distillery. It was a quiet and relaxing place to spend the weekend
Wesley is a great host. He explained us how to drive when we could not found the place ( on the navigator it is in Lafayette not in Marietta) He shared his house with us which must have been quite a change because we were with four! We also enjoyed the company of Koda the dog and Munch the cat. There are opportunities for hiking and swimming and we could sit in the garden and wash our laundry. We had a great time in Apple country!
Stunning, bucolic landscape surrounding the property. Bathroom cleanliness could have been better, but to be fair I only had given Wes 24 hours heads up before my arrival. Wes unnecessarily welcomed me in at 3am and saw me off at 8am during a drive from Toronto to NYC. He was very gracious. Very quiet spot to relax and I wish I had more time to enjoy the area.
About the Host, Wesley
Hi I am a fairly active Carpenter/Cabinet/Furniture maker who realized that half of the space in my house is being wasted, and since I really only am occupying it for brief periods of time why not share it. Now that summer is approaching some of the many things that keep me outside are cycling, hiking with my goofy mutt Koda, and the occasional hockey game among many other things that keep my life interesting. I often enjoy BBQing and the occasional bonfire.
