Our 2 night stay at Union Gables was wonderful. It is a beautiful Victorian home & a couple of other buildings. We stayed in the Library, which had a fireplace, 2 comfy leather chairs w/ottomans, and a whirlpool tub. They have the best robes ever. The location is perfect - close to the park, shops & restaurants. Great breakfast & a helpful staff add to the experience. It will exceed your expectations

Gorgeous original Victorian home close to downtown and the horses. The rooms are lovely, decorated with great period art and artifacts. Saratoga Springs cannot be matched for incredible architecture, and this inn is no exception. During the winter months, with no effort at all you can turn on your own fireplace and imagine a step or two back in time. Summer, a lovely landscaped pool area. Not sure one could ask for much more.

We just returned from a 2 night stay at Union Gables and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The B&B is conveniently located, the decor is beautiful and the staff is very warm and goes out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The breakfast in the morning and wine and cookies in the evening is a nice touch. The common areas provide plenty of seating for either just two people or families to enjoy the fireplaces, talk etc. Should you be traveling to Saratoga Springs and want a great B&B to stay at, Union Gables is where you want to be.

This bed and breakfast is a cant miss experience. The approach to service is done with grace and comfort that makes you forget you are staying at a hotel. It's more of an approach of someone hosting you into a wonderful home. Open arms with a cup of coffee, glass of wine, or the permeating smell of the daily freshly made chocolate chip cookie. And ooooh the breakfast.

Everything about the Union Gables is beautiful. The location on Union Ave is a short walk to Congress Park and the neighborhood is a collection of stately mansions. Their website accurately reflects what you'll see and off season, the rates are very reasonable. Many of the rooms are pet friendly.

We had such a wonderful stay at Union Gables. The few staff we met were very hospitable and warm. From check-in to check-out we enjoyed the inn. At night there are wine and cookies (two of my favorites), also there is coffee/tea 24 hours in the main house. The breakfasts we have both days were amazing. All the food is fresh and there are many options to choose from. We enjoyed playing pool and other games there were available.
We stayed in the Library Room which is in the pool area, not connected to the inn. It is a very short walk, but if you are looking for privacy this is definitely it! The room was beautifully decorated and the bathroom was completely separate from the living/sleeping space (it was up a few stairs and towards the left).
The only somewhat negative thing we had to say about this trip was that when we originally booked it we had a Bed & Breakfast gift certificate and upon check-in we were told that they no longer particpate or have an account with them so we were unable to use our gift certificate for our stay. This was very disappointing as no one todl us before check-in that we couldn't use the certificate even though I previously called and asked before booking.

Room Tip: We chose the Library Room, it was excellent. There were two big easy chairs with ottomans for watch...

Amanda,
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Union Gables for your anniversary. I enjoyed talking to you and your husband about both of your families. We apologize for the miscommunication regarding the Bed & Breakfast gift certificate. We have notified all staff that we are no longer participants of Bed & Breakfast gift certificates so that this will not happen in the future. Finally, I hope when you return you bring your son so that he can enjoy Saratoga as well. Jane

We've stayed in quite a few B&Bs over the years and everything at Union Gables was above and beyond any of the others. For starters, the house and the interior decor are spectacular - the decor is warm and perfectly in period (Victoriam) without being overdone. The multitude of beautiful Tiffany-style lamps is particularly nice. The room was spacious and beautifully furnished; a sleigh bed with upholstered leather headboard and a soft and comfy chaise in front of the fireplace were two of my favorites but all the antique pieces were lovely. Many B&Bs with period rooms have modern bathrooms, which spoils the ilusion of stepping back in time, but here the antique sideboard made a gorgeous vanity and carried the period feel into the bathroom. Breakfast is delicious and the many choices (eggs, hot or cold cereal, french toast, pancakes, and more) are cooked to order. There are several comfortable seating areas as well as a pool table on the main floor and a deep front porch. We were there in the winter but the pool area looks great - hoping to return in warm weather to enjoy that. Our hosts were so friendly and helpful without being overbearing. Just a few blocks from the main drag where restaurants/bars/shops abound. We would go back in a second and reccomend it highly!

Room Tip: Every room is unique.
