A perfect Writer's Retreat - Christy's 1914 new 2 room studio apartment is attached to a private residence. It has a separate entrance, bedroom with queen sized bed, living room, and bathroom. The air conditioned unit provides a refrigerator, Keurig with complimentary coffee, microwave, wi-fi, & cable TV. 1 dog is allowed preferably under 50lbs. There are two friendly dogs on site in a separate fenced-in yard. With private access to the swimming hole and off street parking, we are walking distance from town so Trailways is an option. Check in noon. Check out 11am. Flexible if no previous or future reservations. Minimum 1 hour time to prepare. Come and enjoy our country style setting. Relax on a queen size SAATVA mattress, or enjoy a walk down the path to the swimming hole, and refresh your spirit in crystal mountain water. We provide complimentary coffee and popcorn during your stay. The backyard is open for your enjoyment. We are a dog friendly establishment and own two dogs who are on site.
You will have access to the entire rental space which includes the driveway next to the rental and the largest part of the fenced in back yard. We do ask that if you bring a dog that he or she be comfortable around other dogs as well as our resident cat. Your pet is welcome to stay in the space with you. Our pets are not allowed in the rental unit.
I am happy to suggest restaurants and sites in the area. We provide a complimentary guidebook recommending eateries, shops, and other fun local spots. You will see me around the property from time to time gardening or with the dogs. The fenced back yard is a shared space in the evenings.
Christy's 1914 is two streets removed from the main part of town. It is the best of being in town without the constant activity. However, the swimming hole behind the property is active during the day. Most nights it is all yours after 7pm. Early mornings you can spy ducks and herons on the water. Don't be surprised to find deer wandering outside your window.
People flock to our little peninsula especially during the summer. Two of New York State's best swimming holes are located within steps of the property and you have private access to one of them as Christy's 1914 sits at the confluence of a year round stream and a tributary of the Sawkill River. After 9pm the neighborhood is quiet.
If you prefer to drive into town there is public parking on Rock City Road. One of the lots is paid $5 per day. There are 2 free lots on either end of town, one farther up Rock City Road across from the Colonie Cafe and one on Comeau Drive across from the Police station. However we do again remind potential guests that we are walking distance from the town center.+ More
