My wife and I often avoid bed and breakfast establishments, mainly because we are not big breakfast eaters and do not necessarily seek socialization with short-term acquaintances. But Maple Shade is a very special place for us. The hosts are wonderful people, the house is remarkably sited and wonderfully maintained, and it is situated next to the historic battlefield on which American Independence was assured. Maple Shade is outstanding in every respect. I am sure that we will continue to find reasons to stay there.
We picked this place to stay for New Year's weekend based on what we saw online and could not have been happier. The hotel has a B&B feel, the room was excellent with a very comfortable bed, and the breakfasts were top notch. The staff is very friendly and helpful as well. It is also right in the heart of the downtown and we could walk to everything. I highly recommend this if you are looking for someplace nice to get away to.
We pulled into the driveway, and a fawn and doe were standing in the front yard. Snow was on the ground, so the view was picturesque. The Inn is lovely, cozy, neat and tidy, and off the beaten path. The beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms are spacious and current Laura serves a delicious breakfast with fresh eggs from her coop, homemade maple cream, and lots of birds to watch while you eat. We hated to leave this relaxing Inn, and will definitely return.
Clean rooms, hot shower water, excellent food, and beautiful surroundings make the Bunker Hill Inn everything a B&B should be. Laura, the innkeeper, is a delightful blend of affable, funny, and incredibly knowledgeable about the surroundings and history of the area. She serves wholesome farm food, and has an amazing touch with a waffle. My husband & I spent quite some time one night watching over a dozen deer eat and frolic in the neighboring field. With perfect coffee left at our door at our requested time, breakfast also at our requested time, and views my camera can't get enough of, what more can a traveler ask for?!!
We had a wonderful time at the Saratoga Arms. The breakfast was expansive and delicious. The room was lovely and we slept so well in one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. We can't wait to go back.
We've traveled and stayed in many spectacular B&B's out East. I think we knew after our research that this would be a wonderful inn. But we had no idea how wonderful it would be! This is an extraordinary Bed and Breakfast in every way. Every single person was friendly but not obsequious. They helped but didn't hover. The breakfast was better than any we've had...anywhere. The nightly cookies were addictive! The fact that this is a very, very dog friendly inn (as well as city) only makes it more special. Our Zoe wasn't just tolerated....she was welcomed! We had a "welcome doggie package", offers of babysitting while we did our thing and lots of hugs and kisses. Before we walked out the door, we knew that we would return. This is the real thing. This is the place to stay while in Saratoga Springs!
This was a stay to celebrate a wedding anniversary. When you pull in the driveway you can picture the horse-drawn carriages pulling up to the front. Innkeeper was welcoming and flexible as to what you wanted for breakfast. The environment was clean and fresh smelling. The decor and the ambience was exquisite and we imagine how festive it must be at the holidays. Perfectly appointed, and the innkeeper has good taste.
The Oak Cliffs is a historic, beautifully furnished home. The breakfast was one of the best we have had the good fortune to eat. What really sets the Oak Cliffs apart is the owner/proprietor, John. He was welcoming, well informed and keen to facilitate a gathering of the people staying in his house. We enjoyed a great conversation among well informed and international traveled couples, facilitated by a few bottles of wine from John's kitchen.
Not knowing anything about Saratoga Springs, picking Union Gables as our "home base" was the best thing we could have done! Victoriana, Luxury, Comfortable, Convenient! Our stay in the GEORGE House was wonderful.......everything at our fingertips! Gardens, babbling fountains, private parking, wrap-around porch! An easy walk to the Oklahoma Training Track for a Saturday morning tour, as well as the center of town, with it's many restaurants and shops. Saratoga Springs has so much to offer..............and one of them is the UNION GABLES B&B!
We have stayed here before and would definitely go back again. We love the combination of history and hospitality. The service was outstanding. I e-mailed ahead to arrange for a massage, and for a bottle of wine ( given choices) and a small plate of cheese, fruit and crackers....again we had a choice. Everything was there when we arrived and the presentation was wonderful. We also enjoyed a delightful breakfast in the morning.Everyone we came in contact with was cordial and efficient and the food was delicious. We would highly recommend this B & B.
Wood flooring throughout, beautiful paint job. We stayed in room number two, elegantly but not fussily done in burgundy and rose. Breakfast on the first morning was fruit and yoghurt and then bacon, eggs and toasted artisanal bread. The next morning it was hot fruit, followed by blueberry pancakes and sausage. On our final day, we had fruit and yoghurt, again, followed by quiche. and toast on the same bread Always we had a choice of juices and hot beverage. All of it was beautifully presented on rustic pottery. Much of the food is local or from the farm itself, especially the eggs, the blueberries and the bread. I grew up in this area; we stayed here visiting family and a high-school reunion. This is a classic farm location in Washington County, New York, surrounded by woods and fields. Without really looking we saw wild turkeys and deer - and a hawk. Everything is organized to anticipate your needs; the owner doesn't need to hover, but is available if needed.
Private beach, clean rooms. We did pay extra for a room with a lake view. I highly recommend that because it puts you closer to the beach also. Otherwise you are up the hill. There was no three night minimum which I appreciated.
I took my husband for our 27th wedding anniversary we could not have picked a better place. Rick and Lorrie the owners are wonderful I could rest and relax my husband was able to fish, they have everything you. You need a quiet get away from everyday life this is the place to go. Enjoy a hidden gem for sure
Old house with lots of character and charm nestled in the outskirts of the Adirondacks. Laura was a very welcoming and warm natured hostess. Annie and Frank were adorable house mates (the inn keepers pups) as well as the half dozen chickens parading around the gardens. Breakfast was served at a time we specified (nice touch) and was the most delicious start to our day. The porch was a beautiful way to enjoy a peaceful moment and a cup of tea.
Bunker Hill Inn is the ideal B&B experience--picturesque old house, bucolic setting, comfortable beds, good food, front porch with comfortable chairs, and a generally homey atmosphere overseen by the charming and attentive innkeeper, Laura Coldwell. I've stayed twice and will come back whenever I visit Salem. On my most recent visit, I did a 40-minute morning walk and never left the inn's property. It took me to a hilltop that gave a view out over mist-filled valleys.
We were greated very hospitably. Beautiful historical home with period furniture. Well apppointed. River close by but the stairs are not maintained to go down. Proceed at your own risk. Shared bath, which was fine as we were the only guests that evening. The challenge was we felt we really couldn't use the room to it's fullest as we were told we couldn't put anything on the tables as they are original finishes. Felt more like a staged room not to be used much. Breakfast sounded like it would have been tasty but had scheduled breakfst with family. We would recommend Oakcliff just know it is shared bath and extra care with use of the furniture.
My wife and I stayed at Bunker Hill last night. What a great experience! Laura is a wonderful host, and cooks a great breakfast. The room was clean and comfortable, and the country setting was really beautiful. We will definitely be returning!
WE stayed one night and were very pleasantly surprised by how nice this spot was. We were upgraded to a room looking at the lake for a modest cost. We didn't grill like some folks but purchased our food and ate it there overlooking the lake. Beach was clean and water to swim lovely. Considering how busy Lake George is, this was a peaceful spot. We also enjoyed seeing families with young children there as well.
We stayed here to see the Mumford and Sons concert, they recommended a great Belgian bar where we had mussels and shrimp tacos to die for, best food with a flair of "different" that Id had in a long time. Check in was quick and efficient, parking was on the premise, walking distance to all the town shops, bars, restaurants...and when it came time to get to the concert and we found the cabs would not let you book early and then there was an hour wait for one...the owner shuttled us through the back roads and dropped us off personally! Frittata breakfast was fantastic and impressed my husband while we sat on the porch table set for two with all natural tea and honey, that was amazing. It was the great getaway for 2 busy parents where we felt totally relaxed and didn't have to worry about any details, the owners took care of all the detail for us. Amazing stay, we will be back and we will recommend it to others too!
From the moment we arrived at Maple Shade, we felt welcomed and at home. The property, set in a corn field, is beautiful and serene. Our room was comfortable, quiet and meticulous. Breakfast was delicious and we appreciated having a snack area stocked with coffee and goodies. We have already booked our next visit!
We have already booked return trips to Maple Shade. Jo Ann is so lovely and helpful and Tom makes delicious breakfasts. We found the setting to be bucolic and yet close to the action of Saratoga. Maxine and Jimmy
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!
