1BR Guest House Vacation Rental in Franklin, New York

Cozy bedroom in shared guest house, in the village of Franklin, New York!

Located in: Franklin
This listing is for ONE BEDROOM in a historic shared guest house (there are four bedrooms altogether, that house a maximum of 7 guests).

This spacious house offers so much: a peek into village life, a writer's retreat, a comforting place to crash while visiting your offspring at college in Oneonta, a jumping off point from which to explore historic New York's scenic dairy country, close access to the local baseball events (Dreams Park, Cooperstown, is 24 minutes by car). You can rent the entire house for privacy and exclusivity, or just a room or two, making friends while sharing the rest of the house (you can find all our listings on VRBO; this listing is just one bedroom). All the bathrooms, the kitchen, and one of the bedrooms have undergone a gut renovation in 2014-15, and the rest of the house is being steadily updated and improved. This is an old house (the original structure started in 1839), with many of the challenges and blights inherent in old houses: drafty single pane windows that are occasionally stuck in their jams, unfortunate 1970's shingle siding over clapboard, cracks and bumps and irregularities. All we can say is this: be grateful we've installed bathrooms- the outhouse is a thing of the past! Your guest dollars go directly to the upkeep and betterment of this historic home.

"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!!"

“This large house in a small village was the perfect spot the the getaway we were looking for. One other couple, who we barely saw, was staying as well. The house is eclectically decorated, the kitchen modern and the beds comfortable. There is a huge assortment of books, magazines, arts& crafts, puzzles and games for all ages. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely book again when back in the area.”

“Anna's place is very spacious, clean and comfortable. It is wonderfully appointed with antiques, art, stuff for kids, etc. Yet the kitchen is modern. We enjoyed it and would certainly return.”

“Great place. Keeps the atmosphere of the village alive. Felt very comfortable and welcome here. This place is like stepping back in time but with all of today’s amenities. The beds were super comfortable and everything was clean and well organized. We came for the theater to which we walked. Our check in time was accommodated and Anna responded quickly to all.”

“Lovely space with a great host.”

"This property is roomy and immaculate. It has 3 bedrooms and is conducive to bringing children or friends. It resides in a small town with an eclectic cafe around the corner. Easy ride to Cooperstown All Star tournament or just a quiet house in the country. Owner, Anna, is funny and responsive. Why stay anywhere else when in this area?”

"Thanks again for the care and thought that was put in to the guesthouse. We really enjoyed it."

"Eclectically decorated, impeccably clean, very comfy farmhouse. Located in the quaint town of Franklin close to Oneonta, Delhi and Cooperstown. Very quiet at night, slept like a rock. Bring a book b/c there is no TV- but does have WiFi. Highly recommend."

"Thank you so much Anna. Lovely home and we really love your art as well."

"Hi Anna! Thanks so much for the opportunity to stay at your place in Franklin. It was just fantastic, and exactly as you described in your listing. We met your lovely neighbor Diana and had a great time at her shop (Botanical Treasures) and in her garden!"

"We very much enjoyed our 2 night stay at Anna’s place. We were in the suite with half bath. The suite was clean, decorated with care and was very comfortable. I would highly recommend this place."
-Ken and Phyllis
