Location was great for my one night stay! Mercedes was easy to communicate with, allowed for early check-in, and the town was super charming.

Great stay! Location was perfect for a wedding at the Senate Garage. Room was quirky with different objects and pictures. Cool house. Great communication from Mercedes. Clean room at a wonderful value. She left us coffee, snacks, and tea. We would definitely recommend!

Nice part of town, some cool places to eat nearby, but the wifi was really unreliable.

Response from Mercedes:
We had been having wifi issues as I mentioned, and had our cable provider assess the situation this past week. A new router was an easy fix. Apologies for any inconvenience.

I had a very pleasant stay at Mercedes place. It's convenient to restaurants and the check in process was very chill. Mercedes AirBnb's two spaces in her home and there are two upstairs shared bathrooms. If you are uber into privacy, know that it is an old house and the bedroom door doesn't fully shut, not that it swings open willy nilly. Room has cute bedding and nice lighting and little mini fridge which is great.

Response from Mercedes:
Thanks for your comments, V. The bedroom door does shut and lock, occasionally, however, summer humidity can cause the door to swell and require a bit of effort to close completely. I have arranged for a carpenter to come and remedy this seasonal issue. - Mercedes

We had a really lovely stay at Mercedes’ home. Her house is beautiful, spacious, pleasant, and well situated. Our room was very nicely made up for us, with coffee, tea, magazines, toiletries, and useful information. The bed was super comfortable. We had access to a balcony overlooking a serene garden. We also had shared access to two full bathrooms in great condition. Mercedes was terrific. She was very accessible for us to ask questions, made sure all logistics were worked out in advance, and offered advice on siteseeing in Kingston. Mercedes has lots of experience as an Airbnb host, which is nice and very helpful. And, of course, she has a wonderful dog and pair of cats, all of whom were lovely and very nice to us. They were the highlight of the stay!

I am very social and enjoy a big world view having lived and traveled extensively abroad beginning at a very young age. I am enjoying my 14th year as a public high school science teacher in Poughkeepsie, focused on educating our immigrant population. I lived on Manhattan's Upper West Side for 17 years, attended NYU, then worked in both the corporate finance and entertainment industries - diversity has been a constant thread through all aspects of my life.
I very much enjoy sharing my home and passion for the Hudson Valley with those that I meet by chance or intention.
