We are a young working couple with no kids, offering a private guest room in the 1 st floor of our home with access to common areas including guest bathroom, kitchen, living room, dining room, patio/deck area and an extra Queen air mattress if needed. Cozy, updated, spacious & clean [smoke-free] space. Located in urban area near downtown Utica (close to everything, even main colleges). Light breakfast Included in the morning. PLEASE click on "more" under "the Space" section to read full details.
We live in a beautiful 2 story, 3 bdr. house (used to be a 2 apt. home so both floors are very individually private). You don't just get the room (with your own private mini-fridge inside to store your food or leftovers), but The entire 1st floor is at your disposal, including a full bathroom, a decent size kitchen, dining room, living room area with a flat screen TV with Netflix and Amazon Prime video, deck and patio. All areas recently renovated and with hardwood floor. To accommodate up to 4 people, or 2 people sleeping in different beds, we also offer a very comfy Queen air mattress which can be placed in the living room (there are blackout panels dividing the living room from the rest of the house for extra privacy, serving almost as a second bedroom) We live here, so the common areas, such as the kitchen, are technically shared but we try our best to give you the most privacy downstairs when staying with us. There's heating during the winter with heating vents you can control inside the room. We will provide a fan for your room if requested. There are some basic toiletries available (shampoo, conditioner, soap, etc.), fresh linnens and towels. FYI: The guest room and guest bath are located off the kitchen, so perhaps consider bringing a robe if it will help you feel more comfortable when walking out to the bathroom in the morning if I'm around preparing your breakfast.
FREE parking is also available in our driveway for ONE car. A 2nd car may be parked a few blocks away in the church parking lot. (off street parking available until 2 AM ONLY. IF YOU PARK OFFSTREET OVERNIGHT YOU MIGHT GET A TICKET as per city ordinance)
ENTERTAINMENT: We have a TV downstairs connected to the internet to watch Netflix or Amazon prime and wi-fi internet available for you to use. No cable available at the moment.
BREAKFAST: A light Breakfast is included if desired (options below), It can be served inside or out on the deck during the summer. Unless noted otherwise, by default, we usually have the following items available: coffee, tea, milk, creamer, almond milk, OJ, cookies, bagels or toast, cream cheese, jam, butter, honey, fresh fruit, cereal, oatmeal or a yummy protein shake for a healthy, filling, energizing fix. You're also welcome to bring your own food to cook if you have food sensitivities or prefer to have more protein in your breakfast. For longer term stays the kitchen usage may be somewhat limited for cooking throughout the whole day. There are plenty of awesome food spots around within all price ranges and we highly encourage you to try them!
*Please notify us of any food allergies or sensitivities you may have (i.e.: gluten, nuts, sulfites, dairy, etc) so we can better prepare for you.

We are very friendly and are open to conversation, give directions, recommendations or answer any questions you have. We tend to be night owls, but we will respect your space if you prefer more privacy. The kitchen is located next to your room so you might hear us use it a few times, but will try to be as quiet as possible.
If you prefer to hang out in privacy, we will respect that, but depending on the time, we're up for talking, watching a movie or anything else that may come up. If you'd like to go to bed early, we'll definitely keep it down and most likely just hang out upstairs til bedtime. Pretty much, the entire 1st floor is at your disposal and usually pretty private except for when we need to use the kitchen if we are not dining out. For longer stays, you are welcome to use the kitchen to cook your own food if needed but we highly recommend you try some of the awesome food spots nearby!
1.There are church bell sounds nearby during the day, they get busier on Sundays. They are pleasant to hear but if you're a sensitive sleeper we have earplugs available in the room.
2. The kitchen is located in between your bedroom and your bathroom, so consider bringing a robe to use in the morning when going to the bathroom, as we might be in the kitchen preparing your breakfast when you wake up.
3.There is a mini-fridge inside your room for you to store any food or leftovers if needed.
4. Please do not consume any food inside the room.
-Please contact us about bringing your pets before booking (some may not be allowed)
- no smoking of any kind or drugs are allowed inside our home and surroundings.
-No guest's visitors overnight.
-Guests are expected to be respectful of us and our private space as we will do with you.
-Please keep loud noises or loud music down late at night and early in the morning. Otherwise, you may roam, watch TV and talk freely anywhere downstairs.
-ABSOLUTELY NO food/meals allowed in the guest room (nothing smelly or crumbly either). You may eat your food in the kitchen, dining room, or on the deck outside.
-Out of respect for future guests sensitive to strong scents, we ask that you please DO NOT apply colognes, perfumes or sprays inside the guest room (It's almost impossible to get rid of some strong sprays from the walls, floors or linens when we have back to back guests), you may use the bathroom for this or do it outside.
-We would prefer Check-in before 11 pm if the situation allows, but we are flexible, just let us know your ETA at least 12 hrs earlier.
-Check out time is strict Sundays to Thursdays (10 AM) but flexible on weekends, based on availability.
-Please do NOT have packages sent to our address without previous consultation.
Thank you very much.

Hi! a bit about me: I am originally from Argentina but have lived in the U.S. since I was a child. This year I transitioned from a career in aesthetics and massage therapy to becoming an Enpowerment Life Coach. I just love helping people overcome their mental & emotional blocks to accomplish their goals and create the life they want. My husband Evan is a Social Worker working as a mental health clinician. We enjoy hosting our Airbnb guests as much as we love being Airbnb guests ourselves. Whether we are traveling or hosting, we love meeting people from all over the world and hearing their life stories and experiences if given the chance. We enjoy good food, good drinks (hard apple cider is our favorite!), good friends, family and the outdoors, as much as we enjoy staying in and watching some Netflix. We also enjoy serving in our church and community as best as we can. When you visit us, you can expect us to give you as much space as you need or you can join us and hang out with us. We don't have any kids or pets yet but we hope to start a family within the next couple of years. Feel free to message us with any questions or feedback!
Hope to meet you soon!
Lucy & Evan
