Please consider all notes, view all pictures.
If you think you will be offended by staying at my home please do not book. Also there are times of "hard water" that are known and if water pump is not used often there can be a smell of sulfur. I usually am at the home a day or two before your arrival and will run water to prevent the oder. I suggest running water a while in kitchen and bathroom before drinking it. It should be fine.

Robert's place was perfect for us. It's in a beautiful setting - quiet and scenic. Robert couldn't have been a better host to have. We look forward to coming back.

We found this house to be perfect for our stay while visiting Colgate. The house is cute, clean, and very organized. It was wonderful for us and our dog. We enjoyed the back deck both evenings for dinner. The location is nestled atop a mountain, with a small pond in front, and forest all around. Just up from the house is a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains. Robert is a responsive and generous host and made us a feel welcome.

Small, quaint house/cabin at the end of a gravel lane, where you can't see the neighbors but you can enjoy spectacular views from a cozy bench a few dozen yards from the house. Stayed here with my two daughters for one-night for a college visit to Colgate, which is only 15-20 minutes up the road in Hamilton, NY. Would recommend this for parents looking for a place to stay if they're visiting their kid at Colgate or for couples who are just looking to explore the area, which is quite remote & beautiful in a rustic way. There's a decent BBQ restaurant with friendly staff at the bottom of the hill about 1m away that also does take-out, along with a couple of breakfast places in town serving basic, delicious, and cheap meals. The kitchen is new & quite nice if you're looking to cook while you're there. Bobby, the owner, went out of his way to communicate with us & make sure everything was ready when we arrived & that and we had everything we needed. Not luxurious but very, very comfortable and Bobby's a great guy. Would definitely stay again.
