This listing is for ONE BEDROOM in a historic shared guest house (there are four bedrooms altogether, that house a maximum of 7 adult guests).
This spacious house offers so much: a peek into village life, a writer's retreat, a comforting place to crash while visiting your offspring at college in Oneonta, a jumping off point from which to explore historic New York's scenic dairy country, close access to the local baseball events (Dreams Park, Cooperstown, is 24 minutes by car). You can rent the entire house for privacy and exclusivity, or just a room or two, making friends while sharing the rest of the house (you can find all our listings on VRBO; this listing is just one bedroom). All the bathrooms, the kitchen, and one of the bedrooms have undergone a gut renovation in 2014-15, and the rest of the house is being steadily updated and improved. This is an old house (the original structure started in 1839), with many of the challenges and blights inherent in old houses: drafty single pane windows that are occasionally stuck in their jams, unfortunate 1970's shingle siding over clapboard, cracks and bumps and irregularities. All we can say is this: be grateful we've installed bathrooms- the outhouse is a thing of the past! Your guest dollars go directly to the upkeep and betterment of this historic home.
