Union gables review

5 on October 13, 2017

We had a great stay at union gables. Everything from the room, service and breakfast were fantastic. I highly recommend this place. Walk to town.


Wonderful Weekend!

5 on October 10, 2017

We had a very relaxing weekend at Union Gables. The property and rooms were perfect for a couple get-a-way. We stayed in the Emerald Room near the pool, which we enjoyed using. There are many places to sit and relax in the gardens, a very calming place for sure. The breakfast was outstanding and the service was impeccable. There are also a few restaurants and a Deli within walking distance, very convenient. We highly recommend staying at Union Gables. We look forward to visiting again in the future.


My Saratoga home

5 on October 08, 2017

My family ties to Saratoga go back four generations. As a child, I remember taking long walks around the neighborhood (we stayed at my grandmother’s home on Clark Street), and I remember Union Gables well, but I never dreamed I would stay there one day. This past weekend was my second stay, and I shared the room with my sister who hadn’t been back in 50 years, and my dog. It was a perfect stay in every way. The staff was So accommodating to our needs. The room was clean and beautifully furnished...we even had a screened porch for the dog. The breakfast was delicious, and the porch seating was comfortable and plentiful. The location was perfect...we walked everywhere we wanted to go. I can’t say enough nice things about Union Gables. It truly is my Saratoga home. I’ll definitely be back!

Great getaway in Saratoga Springs

5 on September 25, 2017

Fantastic and relaxing couple of days at Union Gables! Very welcoming and charming house, room and gardens plus amazing breakfast. Matt was very friendly and provided recommendations on restaurants and things to do. As a bonus, Union Gables is basically walkable to everything. Thank you, we will be back.


Union Gables Charming and Pet Friendly

5 on September 25, 2017

This is the third year that we have stayed at Union Gables and each year everything is perfect. The staff is always hospitable and and are very friendly. We bring our Border Collie with us and they treat her like royalty. We plan on visiting Saratoga Springs and staying at Union Gables for many years to come.


Great Time in Saratoga Springs

First "Bed and Breakfast Experience" for us. Will definitely return to the Union Gables. They set the bar pretty high for any place else.


Charming & Relaxing B&B

5 on September 18, 2017

Our stay at this beautiful B&B could not have been more relaxing! Disappointed when our vacation plans to Florida fell through, we decided to visit Saratoga Springs for a long weekend and were so glad we did. Saratoga Springs is a charming city with something for everyone and Union Gables is a well maintained property full of flowers and gardens, only a short walking distance to Congress Park and the downtown area. We spent 3 gloriously warm September days and nights exploring all it has to offer: from the shops and restaurants on Broadway to its beautiful parks, festivals and farmer’s markets. Our mornings were spent walking, hiking or biking (with complimentary bikes) and we spent our afternoons in the outdoor pool, before heading out to dinner at one of the many, many restaurants and later taking in some of the local music on Caroline Street. The Henry Suite where we stayed was very clean and quiet and had the most comfortable bed. Our host, Matt, was extremely friendly and accommodating and his recommendations of where to eat were outstanding. Breakfast every morning was delicious and was a great way to start our day. Would highly recommend Union Gables if you like the charm & ambience of a Victorian B&B and we look forward to returning soon! - Mary & Steve, Monroe, NY

Great Weekend Getaway

We stayed at the Pond Cottage for Memorial Day Weekend. It was quiet and secluded, perfect for us and our two dogs. The pool is beautiful as aremthe grounds. The made-to-order breakfast included in the room rate is delicious. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Our second stay here was a wonderful way to celebrate an anniversary.
