The space
This home is a three bedroom home, however the third bedroom is set up as an office currently. If you have have need for more than 2 rooms with queen beds, the Futon in the office is large enough for a child or smaller adult.

Due to the smaller size of this home, there will be additional charge if you would like to book more than four guests.

You enter through the blue door on the three seasons porch, then into the comfortable living room. The space is bright and welcoming. To the left of the front door is the stairwell that goes up to the bathrooms (1.5) and the three rooms. Two of the rooms are utilized as bedrooms and the third is a dedicated office space with a small futon.

Just past the living room is a hightop dining table, that has an expansion wing if needed. The dining room and kitchen are open concept, so you can hangout while you cook and gather. The kitchen is fully updated, with new stainless steel appliances, including a microwave and drip coffee maker.

Each bedroom has a comfortable pillow top queen mattress with California Den 400 count cotton thread sheets. Each room has a dresser and closet. Room One has a full length stand up mirror. Room 2 has a smart TV.

The home has a private back yard with a fire pit. Please message me if you plan to use the fire pit. We can provide some wood and kindling for $20. For insurance purposes, the indoor fireplace can not be used. We have provided ambient battery powered candles for your enjoyment.

Through the kitchen is the stairwell to the basement, where you will find the laundry machines near the base of the stairs.

Where you’ll be

Syracuse, New York, United States

Our home is located in a burgeoning area. The improvements to older homes are sweeping through each neighborhood and our home is in one of those neighborhoods.

It is located in the historic Strathmore neighborhood. Strathmore is a historic residential area with many beautiful turn of the century homes.
Just a few steps away is the Strathmore reservoir, which features one of the best views of Syracuse. Take a short walk to view the sunset over syracuse and have a picnic. Around the reservoir is a popular walking trail.

Strathmore is also home of one of the cities most beautiful parks, Upper Onondaga Park, which is only an 8 min walk from the home. The circular drive around the park features the Monday Mile walk. The park features meandering paths through weeping willows, a stone bridge, kayak rentals on the pond and an iconic island gazebo. This park is frequently used by wedding and local photographers.

This home is near Stolp Ave, a busy city street that has vehicle traffic and typical city noises, however this street is fairly quiet.

The home is a few blocks from Bellevue Country Club and a short drive to Burnet Park Golf Course.

Groceries are only minutes away with Wegmans and Price Chopper down the hill on Onondaga Blvd.

Please note: This home is in a diverse city. All guests should arrive with the expectation of a city life experience, full of life and energy!

I'm Merritt and my wife is Christine. My wife and I met in the Black Forrest in the quaint Germany town called Kandern while we were both attending an international High School called Black Forrest Academy. We have been all over the world and love to travel and explore! Travel highlights: trip to Rome, Venice and Florence Italy and Bashka Voda Croatia. I (Merritt) also went on an unforgettable road trip through southern France and northern Italy along the Mediterranean. Living close to the Adirondacks has been amazing as well, Christine and I love hiking. I have traveled through almost all 50 states in a tiny pop up camper for a few months... certainly unforgettable! Anyways, travel is a passion and I'm excited to now be a host! We have settled down in upstate NY and have four amazing kids. We love to take them on adventures as well as get a little daddy and mommy time to ourselves from time to time. Our day to day life revolves around entertaining others in our home, food, music, family, and church. I LOVE music and enjoy playing with my band, Mountains & Valleys. I also have several side projects recording and producing bands in my home studio. Christine loves cooking (and is so good at it!), traveling, homemaking and spending time with family making memories. We are excited to join the AirBnB community as hosts and hope you enjoy our place! PS: I am fluent in French and Christine is fluent in Macedonian, although we are rusty!
