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.

Beautiful Victorian with room for family to visit

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Grey Gables for my son's graduation. The setting is beautiful and rural yet very close to shopping. The property has great outdoor space and our family in the area was able to visit several times for dinners. Mike and Kim are amazing hosts and even walked our pup for us while we hosted our son's graduation party at a local restaurant. Great location for everything in Albany and environs.

A wonderful place to stay that feels like home

  • 5 of 5

The owners were WONDERFUL! We rented the place to have a spot for bridesmaids to get ready for our wedding and the owners were so helpful in coordinating the parking. The apartment was tidy, clean, had personal touches, and made us feel at home! Although we live in the area, my husband and I plan on returning the next time we want a stress-free staycation! Couldnt recommend this place more!

Charming and memorable!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Grey Gables over the Christmas holidays and we had a wonderful experience. We entertained there and found more than adequate provisions to accomadate my large family for a Christmas Eve dinner. The home was decorated throughout for the holiday season, reminiscent of the Victorian era, we loved it. The owners were available and attentive to our needs. We will not hesitate to return to Grey Gables.
