Absolutely PERFECT Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Grey Gables is a very special home, lovingly maintained by owners Mike and Kim. The house was absolutely gorgeous inside and out. It was impeccably decorated, and thoughtfully appointed. The gardens and neighborhood are are beautiful. Mike and Kim couldn't have been friendlier or nicer to deal with. We loved every minute we spent there, and if we are ever in the area in the future, will rent this home again.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Wish we could have enjoyed the full experience of the place, but we had such a full weekend in Cooperstown for the MLB Hall of Fame Induction Weekend. We spent limited time at the house, but the beds were comfortable and our hosts were fantastic.

Everything we had imagined and more

  • 5 of 5

The property was completely charming in every way. Everything was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Our girls getaway with six mothers couldn't have been in a better location, a perfect spot for relaxing. One of favorite things had to be the cozy comfortable mattresses which made our nights away from our children some of the best nights sleep we had in years. Every detail had been taken care of down to the coffee supply and cupboards full of necessities. We are determined to go back for another stay sometime soon.
