a cozy distinct
This is a wonderful Adirondack vacation rental, an efficiency, for one or two people. Have the second floor all to yourself in the house where Inner Quest Yoga and Wellness Center operates on the main floor. The Nook's entrance is separate from the owners so it is very private. The main room is furnished with a comfortable queen bed, dresser, secretary's desk, loveseat and Morris chair. The kitchenette is well equipped with a compact refrigerator, microwave, toaster, and Keurig coffee maker, plus other kitchen essentials. The Nook includes a large private bath with a lovely slipper soaking tub and hand held shower and the use of a full bath with shower directly down the stairs. During the warmer months there is A/C and guests may use the front deck, bistro table and chairs.
Guests best suited for The Nook will appreciate the quiet nature of the facility, that there is a shoes off policy, no smoking permitted in or on the premises, and that pets are unable to be accommodated. Check-in time 4PM (usually earlier), check-out 11AM.
The Nook is not really a small space but certainly a cozy place.
We call the upstairs of our home The Nook, as for us it is two floors above where we dwell and it just has a special good feeling to take refuge: The slanted lower ceilings, the lighting, the feng shui gives us that sense.
We wish to share the charm of The Nook at Inner Quest with you - visitors, friends, and family. Perhaps when you come, you will share in your words how The Nook provided shelter upon
return from your ADK outings.
