Our vacation apartment is housed on the top floor of a 225 year old historic building called Towpath House. In the middle of High Falls, it's the perfect location to walk to restaurants, shops, the creek and lots more, yet feels very private & relaxing.

The space

Built in 1787, historic Towpath House is listed on the national registry as the oldest building in the High Falls Historic District and is right on lock 16 of what was once the D&H Canal. The vacation apartment is in an excellent location in the quaint town of High Falls, NY. Within strolling distance from your door are the creek, water falls, restaurants, shops, galleries, antique store, antiques flea market, nature walks, apple picking, biking, running and walking trails.
-The space offers one bedroom with a king sized bed, a dining area open to a kitchen, a full bath and a living room with cathedral ceiling.
-There is a skylight above the bed to view the stars or draw the shade to block the morning sun if you'd like to sleep in
-There is wireless internet and a desk to work at.
-The television is a smart TV and gives you access to anything online so you can catch a good movie on Netflix.
-The kitchen is equipped with pots & pans, dishes, microwave, blender and toaster if you'd like to cook a meal using produce from one of our great local farm markets. There is a French press as well as a traditional coffee maker and we provide you with fresh coffee beans and a grinder.
-There is a small balcony that is a wonderful spot to have a glass of wine or morning coffee.
-Walk out the door and cross the little bridge on the property to access the Five Lock Walk. Bring a picnic, there's a picnic table located a short walk away along the path as well as benches.
-Or bring your picnic and a good book down to the creek by the waterfalls located across the street. It's a quick stroll away.
-The building is very old and it's got creaky floors which don't bother us a bit. Because a couple people have mentioned it though we figured we'd better too in case it will bother you.

This is truly one of the best Airbnb spaces I have stayed in... Don and Michelle are helpful and thoughtful. The space is incredible - it has a sense of history and every amenity you need. Everything is thought through - from detail to detail. Stay here for a respite from the city and for a great place to feel away and at home at the same time.

The towpath house will forever be a happy place to look back at. Close to so much in driving distance and enough in a reasonable walking distance. Hard to get bored if you enjoy the out doors and looking for a scenic chunk of our planet. The apartment it's self was clean, spacious and warm. I stayed here for a weekend with my boyfriend. Michelle and Don saw to any accommodations we needed (not that we needed for much of anything because they saw that we were comfortable and well taken care of before arrival). Gracious hosts! The area it's self has a lot to offer! From hiking to apple picking to numerous breweries, tons of art galleries and good eats! Will be looking forward to coming back and certainly recommending this place to any friend!
