Stay here instead of a hotel!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family wedding and our family of 6 comfortably stayed here for the week-end. It was an excellent choice opposed to booking hotel rooms. This property had everything we needed and more. 4 bedrooms, 2 amazing full baths, plus one- half bath. The living room is spacious and could accommodate 12 people comfortably. The kitchen table was perfect for a crowd, as was the large table outside. There is a deck with Adirondack chairs as well. Moreover, there is a fire pit in the backyard. The gardens in the front yard our beautiful.

Galina, the owner, is awesome to work with. She is professional, reliable and kind. We would definitely book again. This house is perfect to rent if you have a wedding in the area, hosting a rehearsal dinner, graduation week-end, reunions or sporting events.

Dirty

  • 1 of 5

The overall house is nice. The back deck was very nice to sit out on. The stairs are steep and kind of weird at the top; i was very worried about my octogenarian in laws navigating the top of those stairs.

When you are compelled to run to rite-Aid to buy sanitizing wipes and wipe every surface down before touching, you know there’s a problem. We bought paper/plastic plates/cups and foil to put down in toaster to toast our bagels so our food didn’t touch the inside of the disgusting toaster. Even my kids were grossed out. The spa shower upstairs didn’t drain water well and there was black mildew all over the jets and grout. I couldn’t wait to get out of there. I was skeeved the whole time I was there.

Owner's Response: My husband and I are happy that overall that you thought the house was nice and that you enjoyed the back deck. We spent a lot of money and effort restoring this house, which was built in 1890. It's a piece of Troy's history. The stairs are a bit weird at the top because there was a servants staircase leading from the top of the stairs to the kitchen. We took out the servants stairs in order to install the huge built in refrigerator in the kitchen. The house is not handicap accessible and is not suitable for people who can't climb stairs as both full baths are upstairs. We are SHOCKED that you thought the house was dirty, especially since you did not mention it at all during your stay. Had you contacted us immediately when your family arrived, we would have asked the cleaners to clean it again. The cleaners clean the house before and after each and every guest. In the three years we have been sharing our house, we have NEVER had a complaint that the house was dirty. You also mentioned that the shower drain was slow. Again, had you contacted us about this matter, we would have sent our handyman immediately to come and snake the shower. Sometimes shower drains get clogged with hair and if we were aware, we would have immediately sent someone to repair the problem. If you arrived at a hotel and your room wasn't perfect, wouldn't you have contacted the hotel staff?

Large spaces for visiting & dining, plenty of bedrooms, well stocked kitchen, inviting outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family to meet & spend time visiting family & friends in the area. We had a 2 year old with us - everything we needed to keep him happy was there, as promised in the description.

Owner promptly replied when I had a concern; resolved right away.

Beautiful old house that's been updated to be comfortable & inviting, yet maintaining it's character.

Amazing home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as described and shown in pictures! Galina was easy to reach, and was available for any questions.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are perfect, and the kitchen is to die for! This will be the first place I look for any future family vacations to Troy.

Nice home, well located

  • 4 of 5

We spent 3 nights in this property, it is located in a nice area with wonderful choices of dining spots and places to shop for everyday needs. It has some nice updates to make your visit comfortable and pleasant. The rooms are comfortable with a lot of places to relax. A nice yard with a slide and tree house for the children, but all of us were adults. We enjoyed our stay there and would go back again. The only reason that I gave it 4 stars is because there is a couple of things that needs work for which I passed on to the owner, so I think she will look into it. As you can see, it was enough to discourage me from staying there again. I hope that this is helpful.
