Booked for my husband’s 50th birthday weekend with his daughter who is a doctoral student at the University of Albany. Super nice owners, great kitchen to cook a birthday dinner, very spacious for the four of us. The owner helped my daughter decorate for my husband’s birthday before we arrived. Terrific, relaxing weekend! Owners even changed the date for me when I realized I made a mistake and had another obligation the weekend I booked. Fantastic all the way around

This is a lovely home that is very comfortable and inviting, and Kim and Mike were very accommodating and informative. It was also very clean and the kitchen was well stocked. There is a great back porch that is screened in and must be quite enjoyable in the warmer weather. We will be sure to return! Thank you Kim and Mike! Published Feb 20, 2019
Beautiful Home, Great Location CAROL A. KINGSTON NY
Book this house. You will not be disappointed. These are the nicest people I have never met. They accommodated 12 people for our Thanksgiving meal at a very short notice. They had an extra table and 6 chairs. My relatives said it was a 5 star Thanksgiving. The beds are very comfortable. The house is warm and inviting. It had everything you could need. I would not hesitate to book this again. The couches were soft and comfy. The water was warm when needed and the house felt like home. We were not bothered by the owners at all. You can't hear anything through the walls really and it was better than expected over all. GREAT GREAT GREAT HOUSE !! Thank you! Published Nov 27, 2018
"MICHAEL AND KIM'S HOME WAS PERFECT FOR OUR FAMILY!"
We traveled in from out of town for a wedding and staying here allowed us more time to spend together than a hotel plus the bonus of not having to find places to eat. They are conveniently located near a large supermarket and had the weather been warmer we would have enjoyed the grounds and porches. Instructions were great, accommodations very comfortable.

"Perfect property for a family get-a-way"
The house is beautiful and very clean. We all slept really well. There were 5 of us and we had plenty of room. The Davis's were so kind and helpful. We will be back. Thank you so much!

"Would recommend to anyone"
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We had a wonderful time staying here. Plenty of room, and the house was immaculate and very accommodating. The location was very nice, close to everything but outside of Albany. We were fortunate enough to have a snow day when we were there and the owners provided sleds to my six year old daughter and started a nice bon fire in the backyard for us. It was the highlight of her trip! We will without question stay here again when we are in the area. I would recommend to anyone.

"A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN!"
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!

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!!!

“Above and Beyond”
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.

“Kim got back to me immediately”
We had to travel up to New York suddenly for a funeral all the way from North Carolina. Being a family of 7, a hotel room is not really an option for us. We found Grey Gables and Kim got back to me immediately and was able to accommodate all of us. She kept in touch with us throughout the whole process and Grey Gables had more than enough room for our crew. We would definitely love to come back to visit and would recommend to any of our friends and family.

Grey Gables was a gorgeous property, very homey and welcoming. Michael and Kim were wonderful hosts!

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.

Grey Gables is STUNNING! It's more beautiful than the pictures even show. Mike and Kim were there to greet us and were warm, receptive, and communicative, yet gave us privacy, as well. Absolutely a pleasure to stay with them for the week. The inside of the house is all one-of-a-kind antiques, hardwood floors, and rustic, homey charm. I would stay here again in a second!

“Great place to stay”
Convenient location and good value for money. The owner's were friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, nothing was too much trouble for them. I cannot praise them highly enough. The home was clean, comfortable rooms and beds, nice area and peaceful setting. Near walking and jogging trails for those who exercise. The kitchen was stocked with items for cooking and making a meal. Decent restaurants in the area. The location is good - close Albany and Saratoga.

This is the second time I have had an extended stay with Michael and Kim at Grey Gables, and when business brings me to Albany again, this is the first place I'll book. The house is just stunning - so homey, beautifully decorated, and has everything you need for an extended stay. It's a quiet, tranquil place, for sure. I was visiting for almost two weeks on this last trip, and Michael and Kim invited me to Easter Brunch with some other family and friends (so I wouldn't be alone on a holiday) and it was above and beyond what you'd expect from your Airbnb hosts. Great food, great company, without any pressure at all. Just fantastic. If you're traveling anywhere in the region, THIS is the place to stay, without a doubt. Book now, because this place will go fast.

We enjoyed our visit to this property very much. It is in a quiet location with a big backyard and woods in the back. The house is beautifully decorated and very functional as well as dog friendly [critical for us]. Kim and Mike live in the other unit and are great hosts. We would stay there again.

My coworker and I spent a week training in Albany and found Mike and Kim's house to be welcoming and very well located. We were very glad to have a place to call home at the end of each day. We made good use of the rail trail which is easy walking distance from the house and is nice and sunny first thing in the morning. We were lucky to find this spot!
