The cozy studio apartment on the ground level of our home has a private entrance, full kitchen, updated bath, new floors and new beds. Back yard has a fire pit, vegetable garden and access to hiking trails.

Several different bed configurations available in this space. The room has 2 XL twin beds set up as a sectional couch which can combine to become a king. An additional twin bed on a trundle frame is available on request. We can also provide a queen air mattress and/or a camping cot. Any combination of these beds is available on request. Please contact us to let us know which configuration works best for your party.

Guest access

You'll have access to your private apartment, the back yard, fire pit, hammock, kid's swing, picnic table and chairs, seasonal creek, one parking space and sledding in the winter. If it's nice out we may be in the yard too.

Interaction with guests

We might wave or say hi if we see you in the yard or driveway. Otherwise we'll be available by text.

Other things to note

We have two active boys in our part of the house upstairs from your space. They sleep between 8:30pm and 8am. During the day if we're inside there can be quite a bit of bumping and thumping from above. You will also hear footsteps and voices from upstairs. Most of our guests don't mind the sounds but if you're sensitive this might not be the place for you. The kids run around and sometimes jump off the furniture. If you're looking for a very quiet place to stay indoors for your whole visit this may not be the place for you. If you're ok with the sounds this will work great for you.

Guests need to keep the door closed on hot days to avoid too much hot air combining with cool air in the apartment. The floors are very cool and water will condense on them if the door is left open when it is hot and humid out. We have an ejector pump for waste water. Only 1, 2 and TP in the toilet. If a guest puts something in the toilet that damages the pump the guest will pay the cost of the plumber. No candles.

You must also acknowledge
Potential for noise - If the kids are in the house any time between 8am-8:30pm there can be bumping and thuds from us upstairs from you.

What a wonderful place to stay! Our family was visiting Sleepy Hollow for the weekend, and Katie’s home is only a 10 minute drive from downtown. The space was all set up based on our needs (three adults, one kiddo), clean and very welcoming (down to the delicious chocolate bar!) Katie was very responsive and kind from the moment we booked. We would definitely come back!

My college friends and I met here because it was a midpoint for us all. The space was great and fairly priced! It was a perfect fit. Nyack had a lot to offer--a great Main Street & some beautiful parks.

Katie was very kind an accommodating. We have a family with kiddos and were able to enjoy their outdoor space, and the books and toys they had in the space. We felt very at home and comfortable. Little touches like the coffee, chocolate and fruit she left were much appreciated. As stated, you can occasionally hear them upstairs as you’re in a garden level space. It didn’t bother us because we also have a family and were up earlier or also awake around similar times in the evening. Great stay!

Location, apartment, and neighborhood exactly as described! Katie was very responsive and made sure to give us our space. We had access to the washer/dryer, one parking spot, and definitely took advantage of the trail system in the backyard. Apartment itself was very clean, the kitchen was fully equipped, and the bathroom had plenty of towels. The apartment is within a short drive to Tarrytown (Metro North to Grand Central), downtown Nyack, and Piermont. Katie and her family were great hosts!

We're a nature, campfire, music, cooking, mall and community loving family. I'm a mom at home full time. In my former life I worked with kids on the autism spectrum. My husband works in robotics. We unschool (a form of homeschooling) our two young boys. They are wild, untamed beasts (not for lack of trying to tame them) and we mostly just try to make sure they don't kill themselves. They run free in our yard and gardens and play in the creek in the forest. Our land is too great not to share. As hosts we hold comfort and cleanliness as top priorities and strive to make sure the apartment is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable, convenient stay. Perfect serene silence, however, can not be guaranteed. We're an active family upstairs from the guest apartment. At least the kids go to bed by 8pm (most of the time).
