Private Studio, Great Back Yard, Fire Pit, in a Rural Farming Community

Auburn, New York

We are 5 miles south of Auburn. The Harriett Tubman home is nearby and we are near wine country. We keep the fridge stocked with milk and juice. We have basic breakfast items available as well as coffee and tea. Guests from all backgrounds are welcome! This is a private studio detached from the main home. A pin code lock is set up to give you access at check in time. A fire pit and charcoal grill is available for use if you request it.

We use an electronic pin code lock that automatically updates for each guest with a new pin. You can check in and out easily even if we are not available as you will have a unique pin code just for your stay.

A full kitchen was added in early 2021. It is fully stocked with dishes, cookware, etc. We do ask that you wash any dishes used, as dishes are not included with our cleaning process.

We have a Keurig, toaster oven, microwave, and refrigerator in the studio. The tap water is safe to drink.

There are two queen size beds and one futon available for use. Bedding and towels are provided. If you need extra blankets or towels please let us know a day before arrival so we can have them ready for you.

Guests have their own private studio, with access to volleyball, a fire pit, and a charcoal grill outside upon request.

We live in the house that uses the same driveway. We generally are available should you need something, but as access to the building is automated for our guests we let the guests have their privacy unless they request assistance.

There is 24 hour exterior video surveillance on the premises for your security.

    This place is fantastic, the owners are super friendly and helpful. We had 3 trucks and bassboats and there was plenty of room. Two comfortable beds and a futon. If your up fishing this is the place to stay. We will be back

    The cottage was cute and cozy. The location was great and there was anything you could possibly need available in the cottage. We also slept really well. The cottage has a mild odor like it gets damp. Shelwyn was pleasant to work with and the price was very affordable.

    Centrally located for the purpose of us traveling to upstate New York

    We stayed at this location in the past and we will continue to stay here in the future.

    Not as advertised. Disappointed and disgusted.

    While I will say that communication with the owners was prompt, and they did offer a long stay discount, the property was very discouraging and it ended up costing a lot more when I had to leave after about 8 days into a 4 week stay. My first impression when I arrived was the smell of the studio. It smelled musty and like a bathroom. It was also cold and damp. Every time I used the bathroom sink, shower or flushed the toilet, there was a sewage odor. There was also rotten food and milk in the fridge. The area was dirty, with piles of dirt in the corners. There were also many spiders. I contacted the owners about the odor, and while I was away the first weekend, they addressed it saying the pump needed cleaning. When I arrived back, the whole place smelled like vinegar and this did not clear up over the ensuing days. I also was sick with nasal congestion and sore throat when I was there, but not when I had gone away over the weekend and it came back when I came back so I question the air quality. I had arrived on Sunday and gone away my first weekend, then moved out by Tuesday of the second week. When I contacted the owners a few days later and addressed the issues, explaining I had to pay for another place to stay, they told me they had already given me a discount for the long term stay. They said they would consider a refund IF they could re-rent the space, and they immediately ended my rental. So, all in all I would say the owners were easy to reach, and I never met them at all but the place was up to no standards whatsoever. The beds were also very uncomfortable and the linens (towels) were old and had dirt stains that made them appear dirty. The owners gave a VERY small refund as of the end of the rental (today) but it did not come close to the cost and inconvenience of having to find new accommodations. Very stressful experience.

    Nice studio

    Myself, my boyfriend and my dog loved staying at Becker's studio. It was comfortable and spacious. They have a yard with a firepit, we did not use the firepit cause it was very windy one night and raining another night but it was great to have a place I could take my dog outside. It is very nice that they supply plastic ware and coffee/Keurig machine. There are 3 ceiling fans and the shower is good. We could not have been more comfortable! Thanks for having us.
