Please note: This listing was not available for the 2015 season and the first half of the 2016 season, hence the last reviews being from 2014. It is available again and we hope to meet and host you!
~The availability of this room is on a limited basis. This room is generally not available to rent if there is a vacancy/availability in the upstairs apartment. [Please see my listing for Cute Apartment with In-Ground Pool] To book the Guest Room, you must have a photo of yourself, profile description, and I prefer both that you have a Verified ID and at least 3 positive reviews (but I'll take just one of those two options if necessary - preferably AIRBNB VERIFICATION). Also, giving me an idea for the reason of your stay helps as well. Thanks.~
***Please Review this Description AND the House Rules and let me know if you have any questions or concerns.***
Check-In/Check-Out Time: Generally Check-In after 3 pm and Check-Out by 10:30 am. You must SET a check-in/check out time with me and stick to it, or let me know if it needs to be changed ahead of time. Please be considerate in following this as I need to clear time in my schedule to have the house ready at a certain time for both you and in many cases, the guests checking-in after you check-out.
*Note on aesthetics: There was a leak (which is now fixed!) which caused some of the paint on the ceiling to scale/peel a bit. It is not a safety issue, as it is not lead paint. I thought it was good to note though, so people are aware of it. I just need to re-paint.
The bedroom is on the first floor of my home. It is a comfy place to stay when you are in the area, nothing very fancy, but comfortable. The room has a Full Bed (sleeps 2), two desks, a small 4-drawer dresser for your belongings, and a bookshelf with some room for a few extra things. The closet does not have much room in it, but if you need to hang a few items, let me know ahead of time and I can make some room. *NOTE: I do need to access this room at times because I have some clothes and other items I sometimes need to get to. I will, however, completely respect your space and your belongings.* Your room has two windows: one next to a desk, looking out into the sunroom and backyard; the other next to the other desk, looking out to the pool and side yard. You have a full length mirror in the bedroom. There are ceiling fans in your bedroom, the dining room, living room, and kitchen. I might be able to provide a desk fan in the warmer months. In the living room, there is a TV with BluRay/DVD Player. There is a dining room attached to the living room with a bay window to view the front yard. The kitchen has a stove/oven, microwave, toaster oven, and full-size refrigerator with freezer. There is a full bathroom with shower/tub and this is a shared bathroom.
*As far as Handicap Accessible: There are 5 steps leading up to the front door, but a few years ago, a friend of mine made a ramp for my grandmother's wheelchair which I keep in the garage. That ramp will allow you to skip those 5 stairs, however there is still 1 more step up into the house from there. Also, the bathroom is small and will not fit a wheelchair, and does not have handicap bars.*

* In-ground Pool and Sunroom are available to you (Pool availability depends on if it happens to be open when you are here.; Sunroom is not heated so it is generally too cold to use during the winter.) Use of Pool and Yard is at your own risk. Please be responsible and careful. Keep in mind that I have another listing, so there my be other guests using the pool/yard/sunroom at times.
* NO smoking in the house. I have ashtrays for outside if you must smoke.
* NO pets.
~Please read the house rules.~
Respect me, my stuff, my property, my neighbors, and any other guests at the house. This includes being aware of your noise levels. Please remember that aside from me sharing the downstairs with you, there will usually be guests upstairs as well, so please be aware of your voice/tv volume (particularly late at night/early in the morning).
**For safety and privacy reasons, Airbnb guests staying in the Guest Room are not allowed to have other guests.**
No smoking at all inside the house. Outside smoking with use of ashtrays is fine if you clean up the ashtrays before you leave.
No illegal drugs on the property.
No eating/smoking/glass/diving in the pool. (It's only 4.5' and is too shallow to dive.) Use of pool/yard is at your own risk - Please be responsible & careful.
Please respect the fact that you are sharing my living space with me and clean up after yourself.
I recycle and would appreciate your participation to keep our garbage costs down. Just rinse all cans/plastic/glass/cardboard and put them aside for recycling.
I don't think this should have to be mentioned, but as it's been an issue already: If you must light candles, please do so in a thoughtful and safe manor. Only light candles in/on a candle holder and do not leave lit candles unattended.
Please don't leave open food/dirty dishes around so that we can avoid bugs and/or other unwanted guests.
Shut off all lights/TV when you're not around and lock the doors to the house (as well as the sunroom windows if you've had them open)!
*I occasionally have particular work-out equipment in the house. THIS EQUIPMENT IS NOT FOR THE USE OF GUESTS** PLEASE, RESPECT THIS.
Enjoy yourself. :)
I've lived in Newburgh since late 2008, but have lived in the general area for most of my life. (I grew up about 40 minutes away in Putnam County.) I'm very friendly. I can be very quiet, or very talkative depending on the vibe, the people I'm with, and the situation.
I love to eat - especially different new things, or just food that isn't on your generic restaurant menu.
My apartment and room for rent are located in a great place to experience Newburgh, Beacon, New Paltz, West Point, Orange County, Dutchess County, Ulster County, and so much more of the Hudson Valley. There are plenty exciting and relaxing things to do in this area: Hiking, Music, History, Art (DIA Beacon & Storm King Art Center), Farms, Wineries and so much more.
I always show my guests respect and expect the same from them in return. I've really been enjoying hosting on Airbnb, and I hope to make it a great experience for those who stay here as well.
