Your Troy residence was specifically designed as an AirBnB and stylishly crafted for you to enjoy its light, airy, comfortable and well appointed nature. Your host has a hospitality degree and is dedicated to providing a top quality experience.

The unit is a private, locked, self contained apt on the 3rd floor of the historic building (chairlift available from 2nd entrance) that once housed the first business college in NYS. Upon reserving you receive passcode for self entry at any hour. Owner lives on 2nd floor and is happy to assist or make recommendations to enjoy your stay.

You will like the convenience, security and privacy of your separate passcode locked stair entrance from the street. You have 24/7 private entrance by code. Your BnB entrance is at the top of those stairs with the locked entrance to it also passcode secured. Optional 2nd street entrance has chairlift right to your floor for you or your luggage. If you desire to use it, different passcode will be provided.

Hosts maintain part-time administrative space in a separate wing of 3rd floor for files and occasional paperwork. Their psychological practice is run remotely from 2nd floor and no clients enter building. They live on 2nd floor.

The BnB was designed to be self contained and secure with 2 bedrooms and additional sleeping space in the living room along with a shower bath. We have added a copper soaking tub bathroom just outside the BnB door with entrance from the dedicated work space provided to guests.

A third optional locking bedroom with small double bed (futon) has been added for guest convenience. This 3rd bedroom enters directly from the BnB and it also shares its entrance door with the private office hallway.

If they wish, guests using this 3rd bedroom (as well as those in one of the Queen bedrooms) can take advantage of this second exiting option. This allows more flexibility to access the tub bathroom, exit the building, or use the dedicated work space while bypassing the living room. This extra exiting option assures more privacy, and will allow for not disturbing anyone who might be sleeping in the living room space.

Hosts reserve the right to utilize the tub bathroom or dedicated work space on the 3rd floor when needing to access their administrative office.

No clients are seen in the building. All clinical work (remote only practice) is done by your psychologist hosts from their 2nd floor residence.

Generally, all the third floor is occupied only by the BnB and you will only encounter hosts if you have a need. Your hosts are always pleased to try to be available to welcome you upon arrival, and to help with recommendations for things to do as you Enjoy Troy!

Chairlift is available all days to help with luggage (accommodates 400 lbs) and for guest ease to reach 3rd floor. It runs only on the one of the street entrances and we keep that street door unlocked for deliveries. Ask us for passcode for that entrance door. Detailed instructions for chair use are posted on the wall at the street entrance. Note--it must always stay at a charging station, located on all 3 levels.

Do not stop the chair prematurely, let it stop itself to land on charging site or battery will run down.

Your private dedicated stairway from street, with unassisted passcode entrance 24/7, is available for guests and is usually the preferred entrance. But, be prepared for a long stairway. Please keep street door on that side locked so that bicycles stored in stairway remain there. You can lock from outside the building via the keypad or inside via the revolving bolt.

Please--always leave that street door locked. The other street door is kept unlocked for deliveries (but the door at the top is locked to prevent entrance into 3rd floor without code). Code for top of that stairway will be provided upon reservation.

All guests have free use of a covered city garage 1 block away—regardless of day or time. It is rare to have a lodging provide complimentary a garage parking option and this is particularly handy to avoid meter issues (and snow or rain!) for those staying on weekdays during business hours when meters are enforced.

To use our complimentary garage option we must preauthorize you. We require the make, model, license, color and state of the car ahead of time.

Metered street parking currently is enforced M-F 8:00am-5:00pm. Without garage or paying meters, the city will ticket you. Also watch out—there is a space on the corner for parking that is handicapped only but not easily marked. On street parking must also watch for which side of the street is scheduled for early cleaning (4-6am as posted). Our free garage offer for 1 car is a real saver!

Each reservation can accommodate up to 6 guests (with extra fee of $20 per night for each additional guest over 4 individuals).

No overnight guests other than reserved individuals are allowed without advanced permission. Upon request, guests must provide names of those staying overnight.

We are, of course, happy to have you enjoy the space with a few friends or family for a non-overnight drink, dinner, or wedding pictures or such. Are guests are courteous and respectful folks whom we trust know the difference between a pleasant brief visit and abusing our space or being disruptive. We thank you for this.

Troy, New York, Marekani

We are not NEAR downtown, we ARE downtown. In fact, we consider it the ideal spot. We are located in the Central Troy Historic District. You will never regret locating yourself right here with all the Troy excitement. You are in the middle of all the conveniences and opportunities for entertainment, wedding celebrations, dining, shopping, visiting educational institutions--all the fun.

One of the foremost attractions in the Capital District is the Troy Farmer's Market held each Saturday year round. We are an easy stroll down Broadway to the Riverfront for the Market during Spring, Summer and Fall. Due to COVID, the Winter Market has been moved a short drive North.

The Market is considered one of our country’s finest and a must do if you are lucky enough to be here on a Saturday,

This is a vibrant transforming neighborhood with nightlife for young and old (we are a college town); the arts with special events the last Friday of each month "Troy Night Out"; the nearby highly respected Troy Music Hall has some of the finest acoustics in the country; and incredible and ethnically diverse dining options and night spots. With the excitement, please expect the occasional street traffic of pedestrians and vehicles (especially on Friday or Saturday nights). We have provided new triple pane windows, room darkening shades and noise absorbing drapes to minimize any intrusion on your enjoyment of your space.

The architecture feels like a Victorian time capsule, and has been sought out by movie producers for its unique charm. Your lodging will itself be one of the historic sites--it is the location of the first business college in NY. Some of the college catalogues from the late 1800's and early 1900's are stored right in your unit! The building once enrolled 600 students per semester.

Please check the Guidebook we have prepared for you online with ideas. Go to our BnB listing online and locate "Guidebook" and see what interests you. Then call to confirm their information. Your unit also has a basket with extensive information about the area stored just outside your entrance door. If you will have an extended stay, speak to the owner about delivery of groceries right to your unit (Instacart delivers). Grubhub and other services also will deliver food to your unit door. Even Instacart delivers from numerous grocery stores.

If you need your unit stocked with anything special prior to arrival, just let us know and we will do our best to shop for you.

Everything you might need seems to surround our building--hair salons, antiques shop, pharmacy, book shops, boutiques, massage, music venues, etc. Come and ENJOY TROY in comfort and convenience.

My husband and I have been in private practice as psychologists for more than 40 years. We have 4 adult children and 2 wonderful grandchildren. We enjoy an active life of downhill skiing, biking, gardening, travel, and the arts . We continue to work remotely only in our custom designed home offices within the Troy, NY building we own. We are happy to be generally available on site since we live on the 2nd floor--and we are happy to provide assistance to our guests if desired or full privacy as wished. We bought our downtown Troy building 25 years ago not realizing it had been the location of the first Business College in the state of NY. From 2016-2018 our building's underwent 2nd floor renovations that were voted the "Best Historic Restoration" in the Capital District, completed by the Troy design and build company of Flatbrook and Company. We are now delighted to offer the AirBnB that they have created on our 3rd floor. We have maintained many vintage touches of this building's history along with contemporary conveniences. Interested in history? Ask to see the college catalogues and memorabilia from the 1800's and 1900's and appreciate the days of Troy's prominence in the commerce of the United States. Becoming AirBnB hosts is a logical extension of our love of people and my culinary/hospitality degree. We want you to find our self-contained, easily accessible BnB to be a comfortable, beautiful and convenient site from which you can discover Troy's charm. You will find modern amenities in this historic building: high speed ethernet for main TV and your computer with desk in 1 bedroom; your own washer and dryer with free with laundry products; private street entrance; stair chair lift for access to 3rd floor by arrangement; 3 flat screen TVs with cable, Netflix; personal coded entry locks; safety monitoring for fire, carbon monoxide; Beautyrest Black Series massage mattress in one bedroom and a 2nd Queen adjustable Beautyrest mattress bed in the 2nd bedroom; heated towel racks; hypoallergenic fine linens; emphasis on organic cleaning and fragrance free products as much as possible; skylights; new triple pane windows and room darkening bedroom shades and sound absorbing curtains; air conditioning (you control that and heat); original art decor; free garaged parking 24/7 in adjoining block (rare in this busy area--avoid the meters!); historic mirrors; chef designed kitchen with full size appliances, and all the personal items that could be imagined to provide for your needs. We hope that staying with us will not only be enjoyed for the comfort of the lodging but also for our fine location. We are not NEAR downtown, we ARE downtown. Looking for fine restaurants? Some of the best in the Capital District are only a block or two away. Want night spots, tea and coffee shops, boutiques? You are in the middle of the best. The Farmer's Market--just take your reusable bag across the street for the location of the market half the year (exception, temporary relocation COVID time)--the rest of the year, just stroll 2 blocks down. Need the post office? Across the street. An independent bookstore? One block away. A pharmacy? Across the street. The Troy Music Hall for a concert? A quick couple blocks down the road. EMPAC for contemporary arts performances at RPI: Just a walk up the hill. The Arts Center for a class or exhibit? Only 4 blocks down from us. Want a cruise down the Hudson River to Albany? Just walk 4 blocks. Interested in world famous Tiffany church windows? You will find 2 churches with some of the finest just walking distance. The public library for some leisure reading? (and ask to see their Tiffany window too)--just a quick stroll down the road. Visiting RPI? The famous Approach steps are visible for climbing two blocks away. Russell Sage College? Just a couple blocks down the road. Transportation--if it isn't walking distance, you can grab a nearby rental bike. Lyft and Uber are plentiful as are cabs. The public bus system has a major stop across the road. Route 787 is a quick exit from us, with Route 87 right nearby as well. This makes Troy, and our BnB, a great jumping off spot for your commute or exploration of Vermont, Saratoga, Albany and other great points. We've enjoyed our experiences as guests at AirBnB locations in the US and Europe. Now we are delighted to host you, and we hope we live up to all your expectations.
