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.

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.

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.

"Return Guest"

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.

“Great place!”

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!
