About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Located just over a mile to Armory Square, Syracuse University, the On-Center and the major hospitals. 3 miles to Destiny USA for world-class shopping and a picturesque 30 minute drive to the Finger Lakes wineries and villages.

We are only two blocks from the beautiful Onondaga Park, great for jogging, biking or strolling.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the W.C. Lipe Mansion and Carriage House were commissioned in 1903 by Willard C. Lipe, one of the fathers of Syracuse industry. The architect was Archimedes Russell, renown for his work on the Onondaga County Court House, the Crouse Memorial building at SU and the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. The Lipe Mansion features Tiger Oak paneling, doors and floors, custom brass hardware, and one of the largest collections of Spence-Bell and Co. art glass windows in the country.

Our beautiful King Spa Suite is located on the second floor of the Carriage House and features vaulted ceilings, generous cherry wood trim and gleaming hardwood floors. Art glass walls and doors separate the living room from the bedroom. Full marble bathroom includes a glass steam shower with aroma-therapy oils, 2-person jacuzzi tub, separate WC, towel warmer and full-size massage table with heat lamps.

There is plenty of storage in our gourmet galley kitchen.

There is a Sealy Tempur-Cloud California King in the private bedroom for an amazing sleep experience. Two additional people could sleep on the convertible couches in the Great Room. The unit is ideal for two to four adults but can easily fit more using either airbeds or rollaways. In determining the rate, we do not charge extra for children.

Additional features:

*Central Air/Heat/Humidity

*Built-in microwave and dishwasher

*Gas range and in-door grill with downdraft ventilation

*Cutlery, flatware and dishes

Hotel quality soft goods including 650 TC Egyptian cotton sheets, luxury cotton towels and plush bath carpets to tantilize your toes. Forget your toiletries? We have a stocked pantry in the mansion with plenty to share.

Guests in the King Spa Suite enjoy self-catered breakfast options. We stock the refrigerator with eggs, bagels and butter, fresh fruits and berries, yogurts, milk, orange juice and coffee.

Please note: Due to the deep discounting for weekly and monthly bookings, we will stock the refrigerator only once per stay.

We may have additional guest rooms in the Mansion available. If you need to accomodate more people or if we appear to not have a vacancy, please inquire or visit our other listings.

We typically require a few days in lead-time for a new booking for the King Spa Suite but you can always ask, we may be able to help with your last-minute needs.

Lastly, if you need assistance with transportation to/from the airport, train or bus stations, we will gladly arrange for your transfers.

We look forward to hosting you in our beautiful spa suite during your stay in Syracuse!

It was a gorgeous place. Loved the architecture!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time here. The stocked fridge was a really nice touch. The space is really unique and well kept up. We had 5 people staying here and that was a bit tight. Everyone had a space to sleep, but it lacked privacy. This would be a perfect place for a romantic getaway.

A true 5 star stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just loved the Carriage House. It was clean and comfortable and Robert and his family were genuinely gracious hosts. They were so generous! Everything we needed (and more) was there for us to enjoy. The accommodation was luxurious but affordable, a really winning combination in our books. And it was convenient to the Finger Lakes area, so we were able to enjoy day trips. We loved learning about the history of the area, and were especially impressed with Sonnenberg Mansion & Gardens and Seward House, as well as Syracuse's own Erie Canal Museum. The guides were excellent, and the locals friendly. It wasn't far to Watkin's Glen State Park, which really is a spectacular site. (Lots of walking, so bring water and wear comfy shoes.) There are also some lovely vineyards in the Finger Lakes, and Climbing Bines brewery, which was lots of fun. Again, really friendly people, gorgeous scenery and a cool vibe. It was such a treat to return to our cozy Carriage House at the end of each eventful day, open a bottle of New York State wine, prepare a delicious meal and then sit outside in the courtyard and relax. And the scones in the morning: we never tasted scones like them. Perfect! Affordable luxury and great hosts. What more could you want?
