Dear concerned and valued Guests, Melodie and I have always committed to delivering a high quality, clean, safe and comfortable stay for a reasonable price as hundreds of excellent reviews attest.  Recent public health concerns about the Coronavirus/ Covid 19 spread world wide require us as Hospitality hosts to consider all the things we can do to help ensure Bearpath Lodging remains a safe place for guests (and hosts).  The following are some of the things we have always done to provide safe spaces for our guests and their fellow travelers. 
 
 -The cancellation policy we subscribe to allows guests to cancel bookings up to 24 hours prior to check in and happily refund our portion of the booking because things happen that are not within your control or ours.  To be perfectly honest, we would rather a guest cancel their stay, get a refund and encourage you to re-book when your able if you have concerns you have an illness that may be contagious. 

-This Suite (Bedroom and Bathroom) has its own private bathroom and guest entrance that are not shared with other guests.  The heating system is hot water radiators not recirculated forced air and air conditioning is provided using separate appliances in local areas not central air. Just for a bit of added precaution, we ensure our water is bacteria and virus free via a single stage sediment filter and professional grade high Ultraviolet exposure purification system.

-Please understand, safe and proper preparation, cleaning and disinfecting take significant time to complete. Any booking made after May 1st until Oct 2020 will have at least a 24 hour period between last guest and your check in, we will extend that end date if necessary.

-As your hosts, we personally take pride in doing a thorough and effective job of cleaning our spaces for every guest and are taking extra care to disinfect surfaces that might retain germs or viruses before all stays.  Every guest is also assured clean linens, towels and washcloths for their stay. 

Melodie and I will continue to follow best hosting practices at all times and modify them as necessary and prudent, safe travels, John and Melodie

Other things to note
*Price- This competitively priced, seasonally adjusted listing is for 1 or 2 guests occupying the Bed/ Bath Access Space.

*History- Bearpath Lodging or The Philpot Farm is 200+ years old and part of a hilltop community known as Irish Settlement. 6 Irish Protestant founding families broke ground on this virgin territory in 1808. Our home served as a rest stop/ lodging at the top of a hill on a significant horse and wagon trail locally referred to as,"The Bearpath", officially either Bear Path Road or New York State Route 46. Our namesake has since been tamed and is a well maintained rural highway,

*Melodie and I have intentionally restored our home to accommodate 21st century travelers in a private, spacious, comfortable space surrounded by orchards, gardens, lawns & beautiful views of hills and valleys in every direction. Much of the homes original old world charm has been preserved while updating access, utilities & communications infrastructure to current standards of safety, efficiency & comfort. We hope you will enjoy the mix of new and old & find our home as calming and peaceful as we do.

*Celebrate 4 distinct Seasons, notes about our beautiful surroundings-

-Spring thaws release throngs of Daffodil, Tulip, Crocus, Cherry, Apple, Lily and Lilac blossoms from their winter captivity. Put away the snow boots and bring out a comfy pair of trekking shoes, hiking trails, creek walks and Quaint Villages are ready to explore. April showers refresh the landscapes in preparation for May Flowers. Awesome shades of green sprinkled with a pallet of color sprout everywhere emerging from their winters nap. Vacationing Geese, Robins and our favorite Hummingbirds return with our other seasonal guests & flit to and fro.

-Summer is arguably one of the best times to relax and enjoy the 100+ square miles of views from the deck. Lounge under one of our giant Weeping Willows, they provide the most perfect sun shade or swing to your hearts content on the Old Schoolhouse Swing-set. Symphonies are created nightly by peeper frogs and crickets and firefly light shows augment balmy starry evenings. The lawns, bushes and fruit trees are bursting with deep lush colors and bounties of fruit (Mother Nature dependent). Blackberries, Pears and the first harvest of huge sweet Raspberries abound, take a stroll, pick & eat them as they ripen! Don't worry, We don't spray chemicals on our lawns, gardens, fruits or veggies ever.

-Falls arrival is announced by geese trumpeting overhead as they head south following the Hummingbirds lead and the Locusts and Crickets go silent. Mother Nature paints spectacular colors on leafy trees and hollyhock giants sway in chillier breezes. Awesome Concord Grapes, Apples, and the second harvest of Raspberries are ready to pick fresh off the vine, tree & bush, please do enjoy them while they are here.

-Winters first hints of snow float to the ground and folks here get ready for an awesome ski season. Come stay with us, Central New York abounds with great snowmobiling, snowshoeing, skiing and snowboarding and we're prepared for weary guests looking for an unscheduled visit due to inclement weather, (take advantage of our insta-book). Route 46 is a vital connective corridor today just like when it was named "The Bearpath", it is kept clear and well maintained by our fantastic road crews for easy access and egress all year round.

Lastly but not least, we're committed to being effective stewards of the abundant gifts Mother Nature blessed and surrounded us with at Bearpath Lodging (also our Home). Guests, Grandchildren, neighbors, friends breath the air, drink the water and eat the fruit from the acres we calls home daily so we protect and preserve it 365 days a year for all of us.

-Heat, cool and light our home with high efficiency devices & appliances
-Limit and or turn off lights, appliances and devices when they aren't needed
