About Kelly Mikulski
I'm an occasional live-in homeowner (not living there while I have guests), educator at heart, who has decided to open my doors to share my peaceful space with others. This helps me to afford my space and upkeep, planned upcoming improvements (some Summer 2019), & life challenges that I face being sandwiched between generations (including a rental for my elderly mom). I aim to provide an exceptional experience for each of my guests, I welcome your input, and work hard to use toxin-free and environmentally sound practices in my cleaning and operation of this home. I'm there to greet you when I'm able, but self-check in is also available after 3 PM. You are unlikely to see me during your stay other than at greeting, unless its time to refresh breakfast items (during extended stays), or to handle trash/recycling to the curb (weekly) OR as needed to maintain hot tub quality. If guests desire a more social visit, to learn more about local things to do, I'm happy to accommodate that as well but I aim to provide privacy first and social experience based on desire/request. You'll see I leave a piece of me about my space, books, health & wellness literature--please enjoy a borrowed read while you relax (Living Room hammock or master suite swing are great for this). I desire that you settle in, feel at home, and make use of my space as if it were your own, helping yourself to pantry items and whatnot when desired (I am a bit gourmet), and just request that you be considerate and deposit to my "sin bin" to help me replenish items used outside continental breakfast fare.
Kelly Mikulski purchased this Cabin in 2008
Why Kelly Mikulski chose Binghamton
I fell in love with this property's privacy and seclusion, growing up in the woods and wanting that for my children. I loved the spiral stairs, vaulted ceiling, skylights and 2 stone fireplaces. I didn't love everything about it--so I added in the pretty master suite. I'm working on updates and making the cabin "more Chic" as I go along. It's apparently just perfect for this type of rental. I didn't see that ahead of time. I was trying to sell, so that I could afford to buy single-floor living for my mother. I truly did not want to relinquish my home, but this seemed to be my only avenue. When I realized that others might treasure the peaceful setting and R & R that you can soak up in this space, I stepped out of my "sale" box and into this new venture of sharing my cozy cabin with others, because it frankly is peaceful, relaxing and a comfortable place for R & R, year round. My recent hot tub addition is something I've wanted on the back patio for a long time--this space is perfectly secluded and set up nicely for this. I'm grateful for this rental opportunity which led me to invest in this additional amenity!
What makes this Cabin unique
While this home sits "close" to town and amenities, its very private and has a "remote" feel. I'm proud of my pretty master bath, jacuzzi tub, and I've noticed its hard to find a local hot tub, so I was happy to get this installed and running here! The back patio sits adjacent to a fire-pit, where evenings can be enjoyed for much of the year. The two stone fireplaces are unique, and the coal stove is a wonderful way to keep the entire house toasty (especially the master!) during the heating season. I'll have this going ahead--as its tricky to start, but I'm also happy to give you a lesson if you want to use off season! Its easy to maintain and only requires tending about 36-48 hours so its a great way to keep the home toasty--especially the master! The "loft" creates a private space for a single person or a few, for hangout, resting and separate space apart from a group, and the two bedrooms share a "common" area for visiting/reading, etc.
