About Linda Tarbox

I purchased this beautiful brick victorian home in 1988. The house had been neglected for many years. I fell in love with the structure and bones of the house, and with a great deal of work, I have restored the house and have been able to share it with people from all around the world. We are proud that we have guests that have never missed a year in the 24 years we have been open. I have strives to have the 1880 House a warm comfortable home for everyone to enjoy.

Why Linda Tarbox chose Pulaski

Why the 1880 House??? This is a historic property that is situated on 3 streets in downtown Pulaski NY. The front door of the house looks over the downtown shops on Rte 11 (Salina Street) The Jefferson St. side of the house faces the village south park and Court House. The River St. side of the house is overlooking the famous Salmon River. The house offers high ceilings, crown molding, pocket doors, and plenty of room to roam around. I chose the Friday to Friday check-in --- check-out because the 1880 House is directly across the street from our village south park, where every Friday from the 1st Friday in June to the last Friday of September there is a farmers market with live entertainment. What a better welcome to be able to check in - walk across the street, pick up your fresh produce and bake good for your visit, and listen and dance to live entertainment (great music - different band every week )

What makes this house unique

The unique benefits are your in the center of the village of Pulaski NY. You are overlooking the famous Salmon River NY. You are just across the bridge from a lovely restaurant 'the River House' and just a short walk up the street from 3 other restaurants. You are in walking distance to banks, sub shops, restaurants, churches and much more.

Fabulous Family Re-Union in a Fabulous old house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at the 1880 House. Plenty of space for (at times) 30 of us to spread about, lots of unique and fun decor and very inviting. Linda was lovely to work with, very helpful with any questions. She set up extra dining tables so we all had a place to sit and eat. Enjoyed trips to the beaches on Lake Ontario and enjoyed being right on the Salmon River. Great time, I highly recommend checking out the 1880 House!

Our family enjoyed our stay very much.

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group but had plenty of room for everyone. There were beds that went unused with 22 of us there at one point during the week. The rooms stayed comfortable with window air conditioners despite the hot humid weather we had during our stay.

Linda, the owner was very accommodating.

We found plenty of things to do in the area! We had a great time!

Wonderful place to stay for a wedding!

  • 5 of 5

We had the whole 1880 House available for all our wedding guests - our wedding was at the nearby Kallet Theater and I couldn't think of a better way that it all could've worked out. Linda was friendly and generous, and the house is absolutely gorgeous. Out of town friends stayed for multiple days, and we all got to spend good time with each other, which never would've happened if we were all in separate hotels. So pet friendly, too, we had both our dogs and a friend's dog staying with us and it was great. The house is amazing - I had to invite my young nephews over just to see it and play hide and seek! The annex room worked perfectly as a bridal suite. We didn't have to go out to eat every night because the cooking facilities were outstanding. The terrace was gorgeous, we spent most of our time outside and grilling! I would highly recommend this place for anyone who wants to get together with a group of friends - plenty of room and just a cool, relaxed, unique vibe.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

What a great place for a Family reunion and Golden Anniversary celebration. We had the whole 1880 House to ourselves with our 18 people. (Could have slept at least 10 more--lots of beds!!) The grandkids enjoyed the "man cave" in the lower level, for games and TV. They also were able to work the stairs to the top floor for sleeping. All utensils ever needed were available and the kitchen and outdoor grill and refrigerator were great for cooking when we wanted to. Only drawback was that not all bedrooms have air conditioning/good outside air circulation, so a couple evenings were a little warm, but that was no real problem. Plenty of parking and the view from the various rooms and balconies were fantastic. Lots to do in Pulaski, but the most fun as expressed by grandkids was the whitewater rafting down the Salmon River.

Had a great time and the weather was perfect.

Perfect for Girlfriend's Reunion

  • 5 of 5

For the past twelve years our group of high school girlfriends and spouses have been meeting for a week's reunion at different places in the country, usually in a large rental home with plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms, large dining and meeting area, with an available kitchen and reasonably priced. The 1880 House was the perfect choice this year with an ideal location for touring the scenic and historic area, ample room for all to enjoy, well stocked kitchen for our evening meals, easy off-street parking, comfortable decks & grill and an accommodating owner who was extremely helpful, responsive, efficient and friendly. Besides easy access to salmon fishing next door, our group participated in these activities: boat tour of Thousand Islands, tour of historic Salmon River Fish Hatchery and Falls, ferry trip to Canada, picnicking & hiking in local state parks, farmers' market, Erie Canal Museum, battlefield and museum in Sacket's Harbor, Selkirk Lighthouse, and the local Pulaski historical museum. The sub shop across the street provided wonderful food for our picnics and the Baptist Church down the block welcomed us for Sunday morning worship. All in all, it was a great week for our group and I would highly recommend the 1880 House for anyone traveling to that area.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for choosing the 1880 House for your yearly reunion. When I asked you how you choose your places to stay each year - it was pretty neat that you 1st look up # of bathrooms a rental has - that was a great answer. I enjoyed meeting you and and I am always so happy that guests are so happy here and you appreciate all the little things we try to do for our guest. Keep on enjoying your reunions - I think that is such a special thing to do every year . Best wishes to you all.

Family gathering with space to spare

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family get-together for a week in July. We easily fit 17 adults plus 4 children and had beds to spare. We appreciated having private baths and air conditioning in most of the bedrooms and internet access. The four patio areas allowed lots of space for eating and small group talks. Adults and children alike enjoyed having the river and a park right across the street. A good kitchen with lots of refrigerator and freezer space and all necessary tools, utensil and dishes. The owner was very generous with her supplies especially for the kitchen and the two washers and dryers. The kids loved to play hide and seek in the huge house. The owner was very responsive when the dishwasher didn't work and got it fixed immediately..

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. I am so pleased that you and your family enjoyed the 1880 House and our area. I am sure that it can be difficult to rent a home from 3000 miles away, with you living in California, and I thank you for picking the 1880 House for your family gathering.
