Vintage Charm

  • 5 of 5

We looked for a place to stay for our family of 6 while in the Albany area for a family celebration. Grey Gables was great solution. Mike and Kim were welcoming and accommodating. It has country charm close to grocery stores and area attractions. Try some ice cream at Toll Gate cafe nearby. No need to bring games and books. It felt like home for a week. Having the extra space it provided compared to a hotel room, a kitchen, and washer/dryer was important to us with 2 young children. The pack 'n play and high chair were a plus. The screened-in porch and patio in the back add to its versatility. We would definitely stay there again when we are in the Albany area.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect in every way. My brother and his wife, along with my family including 2 kids stayed here for a family vacation for a week. It was wonderful having a full kitchen (great stocking of kitchen items!) and not having to constantly shush the 3 yo from running around in a hotel. It was great for a family gathering we had, Mike and Kim were gracious for the overflow parking and the kids taking over the backyard. The rooms were beautifully decorated and well stocked with blankets though with the heat running, we didn't need them too often. The washer/dryer were great as well. Truly was a wonderful place and we had a wonderful time, definitely recommend it! They even had a pack and play and high chair for our 1 year old. Thank you Mike and Kim!!!

A little piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

A small group of us, former college roommates, gathered at the Grey Gables, for our college reunion weekend. It was the perfect place. The owners live on the other side of the house, which is a duplex, and were there if we needed anything. In fact, they had a bonfire built for us in the backyard fire pit to enjoy the first night we were there. The house was spotless, the kitchen well equipped and there is a perfect running trail just across the street for those who run, bike or walk. We had about 15 people join us one night for cocktails and the layout of the house and the backyard were a perfect setting. I would highly recommend staying here and would love to come back!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is gorgeous, and the owners are wonderful. Quiet and peaceful neighborhood but stores and a YMCA are close by. Albany and Troy are quite accessible by car. We will certainly look to stay here when we go back.

Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We all loved it here. The owners are friendly and helpful. They even started a camp fire for us and had marshmallow and sticks at the ready. The torches were an awesome touch.

The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. The backyard hammock was a hit with the kids.

Will definitely use this place again and again.

Above and beyond

  • 5 of 5

When traveling, my husband and I most often find a vacation rental as a home base. We like to explore an area but eat in and have a living space to enjoy. Thus far, this is the place to beat, Kim and her husband went above and beyond the usual rental. The house was spacious, comfortable, quiet and clean, but also the spice rack has all the essentials, all dish soap, laundry, hand soap and shampoo are provided. The owners are there if needed but invisible if not.

We stayed with five adults for a long wknd. We were all comfortable and enjoyed our stay.
