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.

Great house and property with lots to offer.

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great time in awesome house with 6 Dads while my 12 year old played in All Star Village. AC in each room and park-like setting, deer greeting you in the morning and large deck overlooking property with BBQ. All around great time, highly recommend. About 25 minutes outside of All Star Village and 45 min from Cooperstown.

Beautiful house, caring owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house 2 nights and we loved it. The house is very nice and comfortable. You feel at home from the moment you arrive. Jim provided us with all information about the house and he was ready to help if need be. We might come back again some day. Highly recommended.

We had a terrific stay in Franklin NY. The property is beautiful and the owners were very responsive. It is off the beaten path and perfect for nature lovers. Also, had an amazing brunch in town at the Tulip & the Rose.
