My father and I stayed at the Seneca house's renovated barn. When we arrived we were greeted by Bubba Lou, the owner's dog, and Shelly, the owner. Shelly was incredibly kind and hospitable she also was very helpful in answering our questions about the area. The Barn was adorable and cozy, though a little chilly at night it was worth it! Shelly has 2 goats, 2 kittens (who she just got) and a rooster and chicken. In the morning the rooster cock-a-doodled. Though there were some bugs in the barn it is to be expected as it is outside. The house is also very secluded from neighbors. Shelly was also kind enough to let us take a peek in the house, which will be next to stay in! I would recommend the house and barn to anyone who wants a cute place to stay but also likes animals and isn't afraid to hear the rooster in the morning!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Seneca House is kind of like a cross between a hostel and a Bed & Breakfast. You can book a whole room to yourself, or just a bed in a bunk room. Breakfast is not included, but you are welcome to use the kitchen to prepare your own meals. There is also a large common area both inside, and on the back deck where guests can hang out together.The house was built entirely by friends, without contractors, and was just completed in May 2012. It has some unique features, including a spiral staircase and stone fireplace. There is also a lot of reclaimed materials used throughout the house. It is unique, and beautiful.It is located on a quiet country road, just 5 miles outside of Seneca Rocks. The area is a beautiful escape from the city. Outdoor activities, including rock climbing, great hiking, caving, fishing, and more abound.There are also some animals on the property. A hound dog lives in the house, and chickens and pygmy goats live outside. The dog, Bubba Lou, is a fantastic host, but if you don't like animals this probably is not the place for you!If you love animals, then you might want to try staying in the renovated barn. It is quaint, and close to the goats and chickens. The rooster gives a free morning wake-up everyday. ... more less
