Our historically landmarked, Victorian home is located in the South Historic District of Poughkeepsie. She retains much of the Queen Anne detail including fish scale shingles, basket weave trimwork, spindle porch balusters and many colorful stained glass windows. Please be patient with our exterior appearance. She's a work in progress. We are lovingly restoring her back to her original beauty of nearly 130 years ago.
The entrance displays a hand carved chestnut archway and beautiful Greek key inlaid floor. The spacious guest room, on the second floor by stairs, includes a queen sized bed, sitting area with a pull out sofa (double), a large closet, dresser and mirror, rocking chair, antique secretary desk, WiFi, TV/cable and air conditioner. The private guest bath is at the end of a short hallway.

One mile from Metro North & Amtrak train station, 2 miles to Vassar, 3 to Marist and within miles of the Culinary & Omega Institutes, The Roosevelt Estates, Vanderbilt & Mills Mansions, Bard, Innisfree Gardens and many other sites.

We have 4 cats - Beau, Oreo, Houdini & Miracle. They will not be in your rooms unless you allow them. (Be prepared to give treats!) They do live in the rest of the house and enjoy their outdoor kitty habitat. Please be mindful of their safety; do not let them outside. If you have allergies or concerns about cats, this is not a good fit. If you like cats check out our photos!
Our place is perfect for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids, no babies or toddlers please).

I love musical theatre and have had a wonderful career singing around the world and most recently teaching and directing. I practice hot yoga, enjoy gardening, restore and renovate my Victorian home and volunteer with Rehabilitation Through the Arts.
I love meeting new people and hosting folks in my beautiful home. I adore my kitties!
