The SpaceThis rental room is right in town, walkable to everything--dining, shopping, exploring, rock climbing, etc. Double bed, suitable for one person or a couple. Bathroom with shower! Couch. (It's the college-age son's room and he's essentially moved out.)
We *can* set up an air mattress if needed, though of course this will limit your floor space!
This is a well-preserved older home in the Historic District. As such, it is not like staying in a motel--it is comfy, not fancy; it is clean, not antiseptic. You will find it quiet, private, and very comfortable. The blue and white color scheme is also soothing.
Right outside your private-entrance door is your own private deck, with two Adirondack chairs and a table. It's shady and peaceful...enjoy your morning coffee or relax in the evening. Guest AccessPrivate entrance, private back deck. (Our kitchen is overhead. You are welcome upstairs when we are at home, of course!)
YES, we have wireless internet. Interaction with GuestsAs much or as little as you wish. We're nice, but we'll leave you alone if you are busy.
On parle français!
We do not serve breakfast, as a rule--not because we are bad cooks, but because Little Falls is fortunate to have a really wonderful local diner a short walk away on our Main Street. We are always urging our guests to go try their delicious, locally-sourced, home-cooked food. Look it up! It's called--appropriately--That Little Place on Main.
That said, we are certainly happy to share our good coffee, or tea if you wish, juice, milk, toast, whatever, if you don't need a bigger breakfast, or if you want a wee snack before heading down to the diner... The NeighborhoodWe are right in town, in the Historic District. It is safe and quiet. Little Falls is a very walkable community. In moments, you can be at a grocery store, health-food coop, movie theater, brewpub, good breakfast/lunch diner, coffee cafe, Ole Sal's Cafe and Creamery, great gift and antique shops, etc. Nice, shady in-town parks. Five or so minutes to Erie Canal/Mohawk River with paths for biking, walking, running. Visit Lock 17 and watch, or try, Moss Island rock climbing! We're also not far from a couple of beautiful waterfalls and can give you directions. Getting AroundYou can easily walk to everything. Parking is on-street...on the right side of our street/across the street from our home. (Wintertime parking is trickier, but we'll find you a spot.)
EASY-ON, EASY-OFF: 5 minutes to the Thruway.
40 minutes to Cooperstown.
20 minutes to Utica.
1 hour to Albany. Other Things to NoteWell-behaved pets are okay. We have an older, sweet golden retriever.
The local YMCA is steps from our door; you can work out or use the pool or sauna for a day fee. If you are a runner or cyclist, we can point you to good routes.
No TV in your room, sorry. Good for sleeping! :)
