Excellent Historical Inn

5 en julio 31, 2015

We stayed at this wonderful B&B overlooking the Mohawk River for 2 nights in July. It was such a great experience, like going back in time. We relaxed with a glass of wine out on the back porch overlooking the river both nights! We stayed in the Mohawk room overlooking the river. The breakfast was made to order and delicious! This is a great location and only 15 minutes from Saratoga Springs! We definitely plan on visiting again!

My wife and I truly enjoyed our stay at Oakcliff. The owner (John) was quite gracious, and fun to talk to (quite knowledgable about the area, art, antiques, etc). Room and furnishings were perfect. Home lovingly restored to its Greek revival splendor. Beautiful views of the Erie Canal network and just a short drive to Saratoga and Ballston Spa. A great value as well. Even the inn dog, Tanner (wirehair Dasch.) was sweet. Will definitely return.

Christmas Eve Honeymoon

5 en enero 07, 2015

My husband and I spent our first night of our honeymoon here and fell in love with the room. They catered to his requests and spread red roses on the bed as a lovely suprise for me. Every bite for breakfast was simply amazing and they made what we requested as long as they had it available. The couple was very warm and welcoming especially making it such a nice experience for Christmas Eve and Christmas morning :) EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE

won't stay a secret for long.

Spent two nights here just vafter New Years. The river views are spectacular - a very serene location. The estate itself is magnificent and has been restored to its full grandeur, tastefully and artfully lined with antique furnishings. Oakcliff feels like the essence of central New York at its finest. We stayed in the Grant room, which featured a blissfully comfortable bed and just the right touch of simple elegance without going overboard the way many B-and-B's tend to do. The breakfasts were excellent as well. A delightful place to stay if you don't mind not staying right in a town.

Historic Charm and Exceptional Hospitality

5 en octubre 28, 2014

My boyfriend came to visit me in NYC and we decided we wanted to get out of the city for a while. We settled on this gem near Saratoga Springs. Oakcliff perfectly combines history, rustic setting, and urban convenience with genuine hospitality. We were greeted with a tour of the house and informed of its history. President Grant had been a frequenter of this property! This whole house has been restored and decorated to the period (with modern touches such as a jet tub in our bathroom). We were then shown our room and given a discount coupon to one of the local restaurants. Breakfast is made largely to order. There is a full menu of choices and it is prepared for you at the time you specify. Coffee is pressed. Fruit is fresh. Eggs are hot. The back windows overlook a beautiful lake and hill landscape; it's perfect fall colors mixed with a quiet retreat. I loved that this place was an escape but we could still access downtown Saratoga Springs. Oakcliff is not far off I-87 which leads right into downtown with its bustling restaurants and shops. I would say it's about a 15 min drive but worth it for the quiet oasis away from the tourist dense downtown. In the morning, we were greeted by our hosts and enjoyed lively conversation with other guests. Our room was clean, had ample space, and the bed was comfortable. I thought I would mind more that our bathroom was detached from our room but we were the only ones using it. It's less than ten steps from the bedroom door. It was also really nice with a standalone shower and jet tub. The only critique I would have is the house is easy to miss. We weren't sure if that was the place and drove right past it at first. There is only a small historical sign out front. The place could use a nice wood sign with "Oakcliff" written on it hanging over the front porch; visible from the road but not intrusive. Overall, not a big deal. My boyfriend and I were skeptics of B&Bs before but were more than happy with Oakcliff. We will be back!

Hidden Gem in Half Moon

We were warmly greeted by John, Susan, and Tanner as the first guests at this new bed and breakfast, located an easy 15 minute drive from Saratoga Springs. After our tour of the house, beautifully furnished with period pieces, we felt right at home. We stayed in the Mohawk Room, which faces the river and provides a cooling breeze. The high canopy bed was very comfortable, and the room and the adjoining bathroom were spotless. The back of the house overlooks the Mohawk River and we enjoyed relaxing on the comfortable rocking chairs and 2-person hammock there. Breakfast was delicious-- perfectly scrambled eggs, french toast, pressed coffee, tasty sweet breads from a local bakery, fresh fruit, and more. We weren't hungry again until dinner! John provided excellent suggestions for things to do and see in the area, as well as further afield. John and Susan's extensive travels are reflected in their ability to make their guests feel welcomed and comfortable.
