Booked a room for memorial day last minute and had no familiarity with the Golden Sands. I read the reviews and they were a bit mixed but I was very pleased with the accomodations. First, I was pleasantly surprised upon arrival how clean the room was, with the word "motel" I tend to worry. The owner is very nice and accomodating. The beach is absolutely beautiful with plenty of chairs for the use of guests. The only negative thing is that no cooking was permitted in the room but that may be a fire/building code prohibition; however, this is mitigated by the bbq facilities provided on site. Thank you Golden Sands for a great experience!
Sixth yearly stay in Saratoga Springs at six different B&B's. By far the best experience. Owner / hosts the most accommodating and the most informative and were readily available for info on points of interest and dinning tips. Definitely a must on our return trips.....
We had a wonderful stay at Oakcliff Bed and Breakfast. The view was stunning, the room delightful, breakfast both generous and delicious. Most of all, though, our host was tremendously helpful, going out of his way to assist us in every way possible. Thank you so much!
This is a great B&B! Laura is an excellent Inn keeper and she made the stay very nice. She invited my daughter and grandsons over to have breakfast in the morning. Both breakfast meals (Two day stay) were excellent and filling. I loved the Belgium waffles and bought two jars of the Maple spread. The room was very clean and cozy. The stay at Bunker Hill made the weekend even better to visit family. Highly recommended.
This was the perfect B&B for a weekend romantic getaway for us. The period furnishings were exquisite in this mansion turned B&B and we could tell they had been chosen with care. We were surrounded by luxury during our entire stay. Our host was very accommodating (even serving us a glass of wine in front of the fireplace before we turned in) and cooked us a quite delicious breakfast (included with the accommodation's price). We look forward to staying here again.
Saying this place was perfect doesn't do it any justice, if you really want to experience an awesome and romantic get away this is the place to be. Equipped with a cozy fire to snuggle up to and enjoy a drink and a decadently served breakfast made when you are ready! This place is the dream location and the sunrise of the backyard is breathtaking to wake up too especially with your special someone. The service was great and no complaints whatsoever. Will return and have recommended to friends. :D
Great escape from hectic life in the city. This was a bed and breakfast with a lot of character. John, the proprietor, is not only a superb host, but also has an artistic eye for design. He has created a comfortable, hip, and welcoming inn. We stayed two nights and felt free to either spend quiet time in our room, visit sites and events in town, or socialize with guests. John uses his fundraising and event planning skills to facilitate a social environment where guest mingle with ease. Had some of the best conversations in a while over a delicious breakfast of frittatas and freshly baked mixed berry muffins. We enjoyed it so much that we plan to make a trip back.
From the moment we made our reservation, Union Gables was exemplary in ever manner. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The food absolutely delicious. The room incredibly relaxing. We could want for nothing more in our stay....
We wanted a New Years experience that was different yet elegant and festive.We ound it at Oakcliff Manor.Beautiful view of the Mohawk River and the Manor house decorated ib the spirit of the holiday.lovely views from the library full of historical books and a warm fire in the Great room.John and Susan the perfect innkeepers served a timely afternoon tea.Breakfast was a special treat making you feel like being in the English country side.Recommendation year round.CHEERS MMR,JJ
The rooms are just like the photos- gorgeous, with beautiful ensuites. The breakfast was delicious!! John is so thoughtful and went the extra mile to give us a memorable stay. We booked ahead for our next visit because this new B&B will surely be booked out once the word is out.
Laura was the perfect host, as well as Annie and Frank. Our stay was very homey and the place was beautiful. It's nice and quiet so you were really able to relax - yet close enough to all types of quaint shops. My mom and I were there for our "girl's weekend." I'm planning on coming back with my husband and will be telling my sister and her husband about it as they love to go to Bed and Breakfasts.
I have stayed for the past 10 years in mid June. It has become one my happy places. Rick and Lorrie are wonderful people and excellent hosts. I give them my highest recommendation. I will be staying here for years to come. Hal
If you need a B&B in this area, look no further, you found the prize! We have stayed here a few times over the years when we are in the area or passing through. The innkeepers are friendly, warm and have a 6th sense. They are always there when you need something but never in the way or in you face. The rooms are clean, clean, clean and the breakfast is always more than you could ask for. The price is an excellent value and the setting very serene. I can't recommend this place enough!
My stay with John at the Gardner's Farm Inn was one of the absolute highlights of my trip. John is a hilarious, warm, welcoming and helpful host who makes any guest feel like you're a part of his home. The house is stunningly decorated, and each bedroom is huge and gorgeous, with a luxurious ensuite in each. The town of Troy is an easy walk away, and is a fun, quaint little place. I could not recommend more highly.
We,stayed at the Gardner farm in late September . It was a welcome surprise. John as everyone has mentioned is a fabulous ,generous host and went well beyond our expectations looking after our needs with care and understanding. The rooms are beautiful and Troy provides a fascinating setting for a visit. John happily gave us tips on where to go and what to see. We recommend Gardner farm inn highly and hope we can visit again soon.
We can't say enough about our stay at Union Gables. It's an absolutely beautiful home and very conveniently located to the downtown area. We brought our dog with us and not only are dogs accepted, they are welcomed. There was a blanket, water dish, and treats in our room just waiting for her. She enjoyed joining us for the evening wine and snacks in a beautifully appointed sitting room. Breakfasts were amazing! There are so many choices and one is more delicious than the next. The French toast and omlets really stood out. Jane could not have been a more gracious hostess. Our every request was met with a smile and positive attitude. We felt right at home from the minute we arrived until we had to leave. Looking forward to a return trip!
Charming farmhouse turned B and B met every need and expectation I could have hoped for. Rooms were clean. Breakfast was delicious and served with a smile. Grounds were picturesque. Would recommend for a quiet getaway.
I stayed with Laura for a week this September, and I have to say, it could not have been nicer. The area is beautiful and interesting- lovely views of Vermont's Green Mountains on an early am run. Laura is kind, interesting and interested, helpful and she makes fantastic breakfasts. In the week I was there she was careful to vary breakfast each day- (the only repeat was a VERY welcome one of Belgian waffles, which another guest had requested) The house is charming and very comfortable. (I made my reservation on short notice, having been abruptly cancelled by an AirBnB host; so there was only a room with 'shared' bathroom available- no worries, it was easy and nicely managed) One note; be sure to take the directions from the website for finding the Inn- google maps got me there from Albany airport, but had me winding around country roads unnecessarily... and took 20 extra minutes. (Laura warned me, but I am so used to 100% reliance on my 'smart' phone that I failed to heed her advice- more fool I!) I can not recommend highly enough, I hope that life brings me back to this area so that I can stay again at Bunker Hill Inn.
