This quaint house is set back from the road, so the upper apt is quiet, but centrally located, a 20 min drive away from any of the great places in the Buffalo area. 5 min from all the local hwy's, 32 min to the Falls, 5 min drive to the stadium. It was built in the 40's by our grandmother, and while we have done much renovations, it is still an old house with all the character and peccadillos, and some renovations that still need completing. This is not the Hilton, but it sure is welcoming.
This is an old family house that has been well loved. This apartment includes a kitchen, 2 bedrooms, each with a queen bed, A living room with two couches (one is a pull out) and bathroom. It is an upstairs flat. It includes in-unit laundry at no extra cost. All linens and necessities are included. The bathroom has full shower and tub. There is also access to a Queen size air mattress. The kitchen is fully equipped with pans and utensils for cooking. I am doing more and more renovations as I can between guests. I have done many renovations recently and hopefully next year I will be able to start replacing windows and other cosmetic things.
As with all homes, there will always be something that needs renovations here. So if you are looking for 5 star sterile accommodations, our home is not it. But I can assure you that I the rug is clean, the sheets and pillow cases are clean, the TV remote has been wiped down between each guest with anti-bacterial wipes, the tub is scrubbed, the towels are clean, the sink, refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, microwave, have all all been checked.
There are 2 parking spaces in the lot behind the house.

The upper and lower apartments have a common side entrance, however each apartment is keyed separately. Upstairs you will find everything that you need to feel at home. Each room, including the kitchen have doors that close. Nestled in it's own closet you will find the laundry (no extra cost). On the front and back of the house you have access to both upper porches, to watch a sunrise or sunset. This is an old house, so some of the doors have warped a bit and require some strength or finesse to open them, but they do all work. I have a key lock box at the side entrance so that I may allow 24 hour check in.
Other things to note

I have 2 young children and I work 2 part time jobs, so I'm not always immediately available, but I do everything that I can to be available in a reasonable amount of time, if I am needed. For check in I make sure that the key is accessible in a lock box so that if your arrival time can be flexible and stress-free. I live within 5 minutes of the house, so if you do need my assistance I am happy to pop over, otherwise please feel like you are at home.
