About Jim Guerci
Jim and Jeannine purchased the house as a home away from home. The property and house needed a little TLC and we were handy enough to take care of that. We love to share our home and we are looking to create a wonderful greenhouse and fix the house up even further. We would like the place to become a place to relax, learn, and connect with the land.
Jim Guerci purchased this Chalet in 2013
Why Jim Guerci chose Franklin
The home is located 12 miles from my former teacher and coach. He and his wife retired up here years ago and I've stayed in-touch. We thought we'd follow suit one day and retire here with them. It's great to have a good community around us. Our neighbors always keep an eye on the house when we are not around. Many times our family doesn't even leave the property when we are there. The house seems to offer everything we want.
What makes this Chalet unique
We fell in love with the chalet style architecture with full window views from the living room/kitchen. The house is warm and cozy. You can sit by the fire with a glass of wine and just stare out the windows. Perhaps a few deer will stop by and eat from the apple trees. The house has everything anyone would need when they would like to get away including a washer and dryer. It's great to get away from it all.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Comfortable country home
We had a great time in the country. The house was comfortably furnished with plenty of room for u as to spread out. Multiple family rooms for everyone to enjoy was a plus with 2 toddlers, and the provided baby gate was great! The welcome book was full of great information on the area and anything we needed to know for our stay. Overall a great experience and we will stay there next time we are in the area.
Beautiful chalet in the mountains-even better than the pictures!
We had a wonderful time staying at this property while traveling to Cooperstown for our grandson's baseball games. It took about 25 mintues to get from the house All Star Village in Oneonta. Very scenic route. Although the outside temperature was quite warm (mid to high 80's), the airconditioning units more than adequately cooled the house; and being in the mountains, it was cooler at night. The dehumidifiers helped as well. The house was clean, the beds were comfortable, more than adequate pots, pans and a outdoor grill. The kids enjoyed playing outside, both in front and backyard. It was fun sitting outside by the firepit at night. So many stars in the sky! We enjoyed having the 3 separate sitting areas to watch tv or just relax and read. The kitchen was stocked with some spices, tea, coffee. Napkins, paper towels, garbage bags, soap and toilet paper were much appreciated. We've stayed in properties where not even a scrap of toilet paper was provided! We wish we could have stayed another week just to stay at the house and enjoy the tranquility of the area. We saw deer almost everday by the pond and one night upon pulling into the driveway we saw baby racoons eating berries in one of the trees. Hope to be back in two years for our next grandson's Cooperstown experience!
Great house and perfect for our group.
We loved our stay and didn’t mind the drive from All Star Village to come back to this secluded and beautiful property. The house had all the essentials for our families to enjoy preparing and sharing meals together. We had one hot week but the AC units in all the rooms did a great job of keeping the house cool! Thanks for a great stay!!
Great house and property with lots to offer.
We were two families visiting All-Star Village with our kids, this house had everything. We had a great time, BBQ-ing, S'mores on the fire pit and plenty of sleeping options.
Jim the owner was responsive to every need.
We would absolutely stay again.
Great house, yard and owners!
This house was the perfect place for us to stay while our kids played baseball in the Cooperstown All-Star Village tournament. The house is spacious and clean. The yard, deck, patio and fire pit were put to good use! Jim was very responsive if we had any question. It was a great week and would highly recommend this house for your stay!
Incredible beauty in update New York close to Cooperstown All Star Village
