Your safety and comfort is paramount to us. Rest assured that our professional cleaning team is supplied with extensive cleaning and disinfecting supplies to maximize your protection. Additional supplies like sanitizing solutions are available inside the unit for your use.

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 upon request) that once housed the first business college in NYS. Upon reserving you receive passcode for self entry at any hour. Owner on site elsewhere in building as available or not as you need and desire.

You will enjoy the security and privacy of your separate passcode locked stair entrance from the street. 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 your convenience, you have 24/7 access to an additional shared street entrance that is equipped with a chairlift for you or your luggage. This entrance is also used by your hosts to access their 2nd floor residence and for their psychological practice on the 3rd floor (all work done remotely, no clients enter property). If you request it, you will be provided with the passcode for this entrance so chairlift will be helpful.

The 3rd floor office was conveniently designed to be accessed from a separate and secure wing apart from your unit. Owners only work remotely, no clients enter building. Part-time office manager has office in separate wing of 3rd floor. Unless you use the shared chairlift stairway (that ends in a former waiting area outside your BnB locked entrance) or you are using tub bathroom, you would never have need to overlap with hosts or their work. Your hosts are always pleased to try to be available to welcome you upon arrival, and to respond to any communication of needs or if you seek recommendations for things to do as you Enjoy Troy!

All guests have free use of a parking pass for a covered city garage 1 block away—regardless of day or time. This is rarely provided by any AirBnB in Troy and avoids meters and parking time restrictions. Metered street parking currently is in force M-F 8:30-6pm but is free evenings and weekends. Without garage or meter parking, city can ticket if you exceed your metered time (4 hour max for meters). On street parking must also watch for morning street cleaning times posted.

Each reservation can accommodate up to 6 guests (with extra fee of $10 per night for each additional guest over 4). Your sleeping comfort is provided for by two locking bedrooms with luxurious linens and Queen adjustable beds and Beautyrest Black Series mattresses. Additional converting futon (slightly smaller than standard double) is available in the Great Room and sectional couch can also be used for sleeping if desired. Double air mattress is also available upon request. An infant portable crib is stored in unit closet. An additional high quality futon (not listed in the sleeping total) is available only by special arrangement in the former waiting room, just outside the tub bathroom.

The second bathroom (located outside of BnB unit in waiting room area) is available for fabulous soaking bath in contemporary oversize copper tub. Luxurious lavender bubbles or fragrant bath tea for soaking pleasure is provided. Window in this bath is screened by custom stained glass enhancing color and decor. This 2nd bathroom is used on occasion during business hours by Host.

Troy, New York, Yhdysvallat

We are not NEAR downtown, we ARE downtown. In fact, we consider it the ideal spot. Troy's core historic district changes its convenience and amenities on the outskirts. You will never regret locating yourself right here in the center of everything. You are in the middle of all the conveniences and opportunities for entertainment and dining. You will never regret being convenient to everything.

One of the foremost attractions in the Capital District is the Troy Farmer's Market held each Saturday year round. COVID in 2020-2021 has slightly modified location of market, and everyone hopes plans are underway to return to “normal”. The late Fall/Winter/early Spring market is traditionally about 20 steps from our building. The Spring/Summer/early Fall market is traditionally a block and a half away. During 2020 COVID it moved an easy stroll down Broadway to the Riverfront. Watch for location updates. We have been told it will either be back on Broadway or at the end of Broadway on the Riverfront.

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. Of course, COVID has modified many of the offerings for the present. 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". 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 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. Just recheck due to COVID about special circumstances.

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 in counseling 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 mattress in one bedroom and quality convertible double futon in the other with additional convertible double futon being added to Great Room by 3rd week in Dec. 2019; heated towel racks; hypoallergenic fine linens; organic cleaning 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--the rest of the year, just stroll 2 blocks down. Need the post office? Across the street. An independent bookstore? One block away. An antique shop? Explore the offerings opposite our building. 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 rental bike around the corner. 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.
