I grew up in Carbondale and Skip's originally from Chicago. We're both DJs on the community radio station and enjoy life in Paonia.
We were in the area for three days for a family event. Patty and Skip's place was the perfect location. A clean and cozy apartment. It wasn't too hot in the summer and the space felt very private. A plus was having them as the dj's at the party we attended- though I'm sure that's not usually included in the rent : )
Overnight for business. Emailed directions were clear. Very charming quiet location. Clean, interesting, and well cooled for summer. Nice assortment of soaps, personal needs items to choose from. I never saw the hosts the directions were so good. Private. Internet worked well. No TV, but I don't watch anyway. Artsy/old B&B, modern hippie feel to the room. The bedding was comfortable but the bed could use a modern mattress rather than the futon/topper combination which was not optimal. Overall quite nice for the purpose - superior to a local hotel.
Patty's upstairs attic apartment was quiet, kept cool in the summer months by a swamp cooler, on a safe, family street a block away from the sweetest coffee shop/cafe and a quaint, fun main street. The double bed is a futon with a top soft cover. We stayed a full week, so for the two of us, we were worn out by it by the end, but I am sure it would be fine for a shorter stay or one person.
The space was filled with creativity and art, from what appears to be Patty's own studio. Her dogs were very sweet and well mannered.
Peggy was an ideal hostess, and I recommend her to others.
We had a restful night in Papnia and appreciated the great tips for dining that Patty provided. Had a fantastic dinner at the Living Farm organic local foods restaurant The local wines, beer, and food were a highlight of our trip. Patty provided a clean, cozy, and private space. I loved the fresh flowers! Also, great location, walking distance to everything you need.
A great place to stay! Enjoy Paonia and the area when there and make sure not to miss Revolution Brewing!
Super comfortable bed. It is a lovely little apartment
Response from Patty:
i upgraded our futon with a memory foam mattress pad I bought on overstock— thanks for the feedback! —patty
Patty and Skip provided a clean, comfortable, and quiet space. They also went above and beyond in terms of communicating with me ahead of time.
Very clean and cozy upstairs apartment! Close to downtown and located in a quiet area of town. Patty and Skip are great hosts--we will definitely return. Loved our stay!
Patty has a lovely place in Paonia. She was a welcoming host and Paonia is a great little town. Her two dogs are very friendly. Would happily stay here again.
