Our Riverside Apt. Sunny, 2 level apt, in rear of house, a short walk to the U of R with plenty of space/parking. One bedroom with lots of character as well as a futon in the living room in restored mansion on Mt. Hope. There is a fully equipped kitchen, spiral staircase, and 1 and 1/2 baths. It has a separate entrance, and is approximately 1,000 square feet. Set on a peaceful acre of land along the Genesee River. Enjoy Rochester from this historic mansion with tons of character and charm.

The space
Recently refurbished with new wood floors, cabinets, countertop and paint, yet still maintaining the character of what used to be the "servants quarters". It is PERFECT if you are visiting the U of R! We live in the rest of the house and are excited to have you stay! Note: It does have a narrow spiral staircase to the loft bedroom.. We also have another apartment listed on Airbnb, be sure to check it out! Apt #2. We do not charge an additional cleaning fee, as we think this should be included in the price.

Guest access
The apartment has it's own entrance but there is an additional door connecting it to the rest of the house. Just open it and join us in the kitchen for coffee or a beer, or sit around the fireplace and we will give you great ideas about what to do during your stay. Families are welcome and perfect for visits to U of R. We have another bedroom for rent in the main part of the house if needed. It has it's own private bath as well.

Other things to note
If you need more beds in the apartment (which can sleep 2 in the bedroom and 2 on the futon), we can easily wheel another cot in, OR we do have another charming bedroom, with a private bath available in the main part of the house for rent. WE ALSO HAVE ANOTHER APARTMENT ON AIRBNB WHICH HAS A QUEEN SIZE BED AND TRUNDLE BED IN LIVING ROOM. APT #2
We had guests at our previous home and enjoyed meeting people. We do have two cats, who do not go into the apartment, but they do roam around our part of the house.
We are flexible on the price if you are here to visit Strong Hospital. There is a spiral staircase !

Rochester, New York, United States

We moved to this amazing house in September 2014 and have been working non-stop to restore some of it's original beauty. We are bordered by the U of R property and the U of R provost lives across the street! We are close to downtown and the South Wedge has lots of great eateries and pubs as well as a new microbrewery steps down the hill. Our house is on an acre of land overlooking the river and the U of R. We are 4 houses away from beautiful Mount Hope Cemetary.

We have been having guests for over a year now and it has been a 100% positive experience.
