Walk to everything from my historic victorian rowhouse in the heart of hip, downtown Troy.

The bathroom with clawfoot tub for baths only (no shower) is shared between guests.
Dining room access in the morning for tea, coffee, fruit, muffins, etc.
Possible access to deck off kitchen if weather allows and you don't mind small dogs.

The space

This listing is for a charming and comfortable bedroom with a FULL size bed on the third floor of a victorian rowhouse. High ceilings and window seats add to the charm. View the Hart-Cluett mansion from the large windows.

There are 3 bedrooms on the 3rd floor. The bathroom is a common bathroom, be prepared to share, but chances are good you'll be the only one, except RPI parent's weekend, alumni weekend, etc.
I don't often rent out more than one room at a time except in very busy times.
Clean towels and linens are provided.
There is a clawfoot tub with a handheld shower only.
Organic shampoo and conditioner provided.

Guest access

Please be aware that there is a business in operation on the first floor.
I serve an organic continental breakfast with tea and coffee and guests have access to the dining room on the first floor between the hours of 7:30-10:30am. In the nice weather you are welcome to sit out on my private, serene backyard deck.

Interaction with guests

I will be here to greet you, show your room, give you tips on parking and dining and anything else I can help with. I am almost always here or very close by and am ready to help with any questions or concerns that might arise.
I may not see you upon your departure, however, and just ask that you leave the key on the front prayer table.

Other things to note

There are 3 small dogs and interaction with guests is limited and optional.

Location, Kathe personality and house, all good.

Kathe is a kind and friendly host and her house is a wonderful place in the truly heart of downtown Troy. I rented one of her rooms for my parents, they visited me for a weekend and both had a great experience staying here. Asking them what was the best experience of their trip in the US, they reply without doubts; Troy, the coolest city in Upstate NY.

Kathe's home was a perfect fit for me during my first visit to Troy. The home was right in the middle of downtown, so a lot of the places were within walking distance. I thought to rent a car, but had I done so, I would have missed out on the city's gems. The house provided all the necessities, and Kathe was a great host.

Kathe's home is beautiful. The rooms were clean and quiet (there was someone else staying in the room next to mine and I did not hear them at all). The location is in the middle of downtown (excellent!) and Kathe is incredibly accommodating and hospitable.

Very nice comfortable place to stay that is centrally located in Troy. You get to sleep in a little piece of history!

Had a great weekend in Troy! Unfortunately I didn't get to meet the host, but her presence - in the form of personal touches, like the decor and organic soaps and shampoos - was certainly felt throughout our stay. The location was perfect as well; we were walking distance from every point of interest in downtown Troy. As an RPI grad, I'd definitely stay here again for alumni events.

Kathe User ProfileKathe is a superhost.

I'm a semi-retired hair stylist and yoga instructor, and I travel whenever I can. I love to see new locales, see the architecture, meet new people, eat their cuisine, try their customs, learn their language, etc. I've always found that the best way to do that is by staying in a private residence or guest house and living like a local.

I have traveled fairly extensively and rarely stay in hotels although that is nice sometimes too.

I am a very creative type and I find my inspiration when I am visiting new places and getting outside my comfort zone.

I've become a great packer and NEVER check my luggage anymore! I'd be happy to show you how I do it..

I love hosting because I enjoy creating spaces and experiences for my guests to help them to feel totally at ease during their trip. And I often get to experience cultural exchanges without even leaving my house!
