“Maria was very nice and I enjoyed my stay. Great place just like the photos! I loved the walk to the river and great restaurants! My plans changed and I had to leave early but luckily for me the cancellation policy was flexible. It was my first experience with Airbnb and will use it again! Thank you!”

“WOW! This was on our bucket list and we did it! It was easy to book, Maria is right on with answering any questions and Mary Ann greeted us with welcoming arms as Maria had to be out of town on the day we arrived. Both were so hospitable and saw to each need we had, right down to perfect suggestions for food and the area attractions. All that would have been enough, but this was on our bucket list. My husband is a retired firefighter and slept in the firehouse he worked out of for 1/3 of our married lives. I never got to experience that part of his life. Now, we both were able to stay in a restored firehouse that was simply breathtaking. The bed was the comfiest, the fireplace was cozy, the parking and location were easy peasy, and just across the street the best little restaurant in Kingston – Armadillos! We were amazed at the rehabbing of the old into a new, artistic studio, everything was so tasteful and pleasing. Privacy yet we felt as tho we were part of a community while staying our short visit in Kingston. Great place”

“The listing as as pictured. It was warm and cozy, and Maria was very welcoming and easy to communicate with. The location is great and within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and bars in the the Rondout–West Strand Historic District.”

“The Firehouse Inn, hosted by Maria Dijk, is a pleasant studio space near all the attractions of the Rondout section of Kingston, NY. Maria couldn’t have been more welcoming, and the suite she provides was well-stocked with coffee, teas, fruit juices and other beverages. The bed was comfortable, the room spacious, and the appliances and flat-screen tv easy to operate. Two small shortcomings: there is no kitchen sink so you need to wash dishes in the nearby “compact” bathroom sink, and if you have any mobility issues you should note that there is a very short flight of angled stairs that take you from the sleeping area to the bathroom. But these are minor drawbacks and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Maria and the Firehouse Inn.”
