We are Educators, Designers, Artists. We both used to live in NYC. We met in Rosendale and have lived in this house for 10 years and have gotten to know the neighbors, community, artists, musicians, biologists, ex-NYC-ers, writers. Its a wonderful mix of folks. We walk, hike, ride our bikes. There is a bike rental right next to Market Market. There is a Farmer's Market from June through October, to buy fresh produce on Sunday mornings. Yoga Yoga is within walking distance for morning serenity. Rosendale Cafe has fresh music most weekends. The Rosendale Theatre shows independent first run features all run by volunteers. But what we like most is our house by the river. Air B-n-B is nice way to for us to share our beautiful home with folks. We are not a hotel. We love that when people stay here, they treat the house with respect; in appreciation for the comfortable, beautiful space we have created. Hope to see you here.
