About this listing
Welcome to Grace House. A place where you can relax ,enjoy organic, home cooked food and experience some spa services too! Grace House is is centrally located to Niagara Falls, the City of Buffalo, Universities/Colleges and close to the airport!
I am now offering spa and wellness services to my guests: in-home massage therapy for men and women, complimentary facials, and 30 or 60 minute life coaching services.
Please let me know upon booking your stay if you would like any of these services. My house is 15 minutes to the city and 30 minutes to Niagara Falls by car, not far at all!
There is safe parking on the street in front of my house for your car and there is a supermarket close by.
I include healthy organic breads, coffee, teas, eggs, oatmeal and I also can make gluten free items available for my guests as long as time permits for me. I also like to cook a full breakfast for my guests on the weekends, time permitting with your schedules and mine.. I do ensure that all the ingredients are fresh and I would kindly ask for a love donation of $13 per person for the full breakfast :) I can send you a menu of options if you would like to choose ahead of time!
My home is an inviting, peaceful home with two loving cats. You will be greeted with a warm plate of homemade chocolate chip cookies, freshly scented towels and a warm cup of coffee.
The bedroom has a queen sized bed so comfortable you won't want to get out! This is one of two bedrooms I have available. The other, smaller and very quaint bedroom is listed on Craftsman Style Bungalow II.
There are times when both rooms are booked so the bathroom would be shared between the guests and there are times when the space is just yours to enjoy all by yourself. I promise that if both rooms are booked, you will meet some amazing people from across the globe!
My house is located between the North and South Campuses of the University of Buffalo and just fifteen minutes from the City of Buffalo, you won't be far from any park, concert venue, fabulous restaurants and architectural wonders. Our city hosts three Frank Lloyd Wright homes and many Olmstead parks. The city offers so many wonderful restaurants, you will be hard pressed to choose! I will provide you with recommendations, approximate prices and directions. I promise you won't be disappointed!
The breathtaking, wonder of Niagara Falls is only 30 minutes away and there is a beautiful park to stroll through and you must stay for the light show at night that shows brilliant colors against the sparkly, translucent waters!
There is an artsy part of our town much like NYC's Soho, which we call Elmwood. The street hosts museums, boutiques and many great eateries and bars.
Hertel avenue which is not far from the house is another up and coming area with many unique furniture, interior design stores, boutiques, coffee houses, bars and restaurants.
You are welcome to enjoy the living room and sun room which overlook our beautiful maple tree lined street and watch your favorite tv shows or read a book. There are laundry facilities in the basement.
My cats and I are excited to meet all of you! See you soon!
Wifi, the kitchen, living room, sitting area, bathroom, laundry facilities and outdoor, backyard patio. There is a TV in the living room, please make yourself comfortable , put up your feet and relax watching your favorite shows!
Both of the bedrooms are nicely situated on the first floor with close access to a bathroom and the kitchen. The bathroom is shared with the other guest bedroom, if that is a concern for you , please lets' discuss this before you book the room.
Interaction with Guests
I interact with my guests as much as they desire. If it is solitude and peace they desire, then i typically spend time in my study or bedroom, giving them the space they need. If they are eager to chat and hangout at breakfast, I love to learn about their stories and culture. The experience is all about how I can serve my guests, in whatever way that is.
My neighborhood is lined with beautiful maple trees, is very quiet with neighbors who are friendly and respectful. There is plenty of safe parking on the street and feel free to take a walk around, it is quite pleasant on a spring/summer day and I promise the neighbors will say hello!
There is a train station about a 10 min walk from the house that goes directly downtown. The train takes a pretty straight route, so there is some walking involved to your destination as well. There are buses, however Buffalo isn't like NYC or Boston where there is a subway system. It is more of a "car/cab city."
Other Things to Note
I have another listing on AirBnB for a smaller bedroom that is adjacent to this one, you will find it here: https://www.airbnb.com/manage-listing/3548475/overview . If you would like your entire family in the house, please consider booking both rooms. Both rooms could accommodate 4 people comfortably.
If you would like a different check in or check out time, please ask me as there are times when I am more than happy to be flexible about this.
I would graciously ask that you treat my pets with kindness and respect. I have two cats who love people, but they are used to a quiet home so let them come to you and put your hand gently in front of their faces and they will let you kno how comfortable they are. They are very sweet and playful!
My kitchen is open to you, make yourself at home, however I would ask that you clean the pots and pans and put the dirty dishes in the dishwasher.
Please place the dirty towels in the laundry shoot right on the wall between both bedrooms and please smoke outside if you are a smoker. Thank you, my appreciation in advance.
I ask that my guests arrive before 10 pm as I do work during the day and I need to get up early. I can make arrangements for later arrive on certain occassions but there would be an additional fee of $25.
I am an environmentally conscious person and I would gratefully ask that you conserve energy and water by using one towel for a few days if you are staying longer than a day or two.
In addition, each room holds two people. The rooms accomodate 2 people comfortably. If you are parents of students at the University and want your child to come and spend time with you, I am thrilled to have you enjoy my home as a family . However, if your child is going to spend time showering here and eating some of the food that I have set out for guests, I will access an additional $25 per day.
I am an author and life coach. My life's purpose is to inspire and influence myself and others to grow, create, change, learn to be THE BEST person that we can possibly BE and do it with PASSION, EXCITEMENT AND JOY!
