Looking to save a little on your lodging in Watertown? Perhaps you're down from Ontario for a shopping trip, need a place to prep for an interview at SMC, or visiting a friend on Fort Drum? I have a guest room with your name on it!
I've lived in Jefferson County a long time and am happy to give restaurant recommendations, directions, etc.
I keep a fairly clean house that is well stocked with a little bit of everything and anything by way of amenities. It's like you'll be crashing with a long lost college friend you haven't seen in a decade. However, please ask before rooting around in my medicine cabinet, etc. I'm a bit OCD, so trust me, I will notice. (update) I'm your host, not your long lost friend, so don't use my razor. That's gross. Thanks!
PS - as of Jan '17, I have a cat. Yes, it was a terrible idea. The guest room is off limits to him and he stays in the basement a lot, but you have been warned.
Acesso de hóspedes
Guests will have access to my well appointed kitchen, and maybe even some of my cooking. I just ask that you don't plan to cook four course meals, splash curry and champagne everywhere, etc. Light food prep is just fine.
The bathroom is shared but kept very clean.
Shared open living space with ample seating and flat screen tv. The tv in the guest room has full DirecTV access.
It's a small house, for sure, but I like to be prepared for any eventuality short of a zombie apocalypse. Just ask if you need something, except my razor.
Interação com hóspedes
I'll probably be around, outside of my 9-5 job hours. I'm also a new host so I'll be expecting to meet you upon check in, etc.
(6 months later) I am more comfortable letting folks check in without me hovering, finding a glass of water on their own, etc., which works out well since I'm crazy busy all summer but still enjoy sharing my home with random travelers.
(12 months later) If I'm not home, I'll leave the door unlocked for you and direct you to my House Manual for FAQ. I may ask you to feed the cat, but you'll have the house to yourself. This is especially true of summer weekends.
Therefore, it's a 50/50 chance of me being on the couch all night catching up on my dvr vs. me getting home from volleyball/trivia/book club/other at 10pm and heading right to bed.
Outras coisas a ter em conta
The guest room does not have it's own AC unit, which usually only matters for about 3 weeks each summer. I keep the house pretty cool on hot days with two units on all day, and there is a fan in the closet for your use. In the winter, it's the warmest room in the house and I've had some people close the heat vent.
I'm also rather terrible at offering the second "b" as in breakfast. I don't eat it much at home and my coffee set up is incredibly inconvenient (I absolutely refuse to Keurig). I usually have fruit and breakfast bars available and some great diner recommendations ready to share. There are multiple Dunkin and Tim Horton locations in town, which is probably your safest bet.
I do NOT offer a discount for extended stays, since I am best set up for quick stops and single overnights. I try to keep my price competitive for the visiting businessman, but I am not interested in a roommate. I do, however, love to lower my price for my "regulars" that have to be in town often for work, or repeat occasional customers, just ask!
Please be a semi-appropriate adult.
