This spacious, lovely, historic house is your home away from home, a relaxing getaway from hectic city life, a peek into village life, a writer's retreat, a base for exploring the countryside, a close connection to Oneonta (15 minutes by car), Cooperstown baseball (13 miles, 20 minutes by car to the Dreams Park, Cooperstown), or whatever you imagine! Located in Franklin, New York (150 miles northwest of NYC) you can rent the whole house or just a room or two. This rental listing is for our private bedroom with a queen bed in a shared house (if/when there are other guests). It is at the end of a hallway upstairs, and overlooks the historic Community Bible Church next door.
We have high speed wifi, so streaming content on your devices is certainly an option, but for those guests who prefer cable TV please note that we do not have televisions or cable access.
Also, although this region is well known for having a very comfortable summer climate and no homes in Franklin have A/C, we understand some guests need climate control. Please note the house does not have A/C. We do provide fans for every bedroom.
Anna's historic house in Franklin is an excellent place to stay in the region. It is supremely kid-friendly, well-appointed, uniquely furnished, and very clean. Anna was a pleasure to deal with and responsive to questions. Highly recommended if you find yourself heading to Franklin and the Oneonta area.
We had the best time and wished we could have stayed longer! Anna's home is very comfortable clean and decorated with the most amazing style. Our kids loved the drum set and piano. My husband didn't snore! My twin sister fell in love with the shower and all its detailed fixtures. Everyone had the best nights sleep. This morning we had a tasty breakfast at Tulip and Rose. Anna is a great host! Her house is perfectly set up for guests. Her decorating style made us feel very comfortable. The attention to detail to everything from furniture, art, to unique hooks shows she really cares! Any question that I had she responded with a friendly response. The next trip to NY we will definitely stay at the Franklin Guest House and plan to use the beautiful kitchen! Thank you so much!
Cozy and clean, totally redone, this guest house is so welcoming, quiet & relaxing, roomy and warm. The beds are dreamy, so comfy and soft, and sheets and blankets are all new and soft. All new amenities, the views outside are so beautiful, and the town of Franklin is quiet and calming. I would stay again & again at other times of the year to see the beautiful seasons change. I truly enjoyed my stay!
Anna saved the day when my phone & computer crashed, causing me to lose all the info from AirB&B, except for her phone #. We arrived late in the evening, & she promptly returned our text with the entry code ~ whew!!! The house is fascinating, as Anna is an extremely talented artist, with a unique eye for placement of her work. It would take another week to begin to absorb the artwork alone. We loved the eclectic combo of antiques & modern. The house is immaculately clean. Absolutely everything one could need was provided in a logical, hence easy to find, fashion. We went back to Franklin to spread our mother's ashes. The beauty & peace & quiet added to the nostalgia of our visit. The fact that the bedroom window faced our childhood home was a perk probably just relevant to me! If you are looking for an "unplugged" experience, this is perfect- there is no TV. The 2nd-hand store, a four minute walk, was an incredible find, as was the Railroad Museum. The only eatery in town was, unfortunately, closed for the week. Oneonta is a mere 11 miles away. We found Sloans, Jay's Place, Your Father's Place, & of course we returned - twice - to Brook's Chicken BBQ!!
