My overnight stay in this historic mansion was absolutely lovely! The home is comfortable, relaxing, filled with rich history and beautiful furnishings. Very clean, spacious and the bed was quite comfortable. John is welcoming, flexible to accommodate my schedule and serves a fresh, made to order breakfast. Wonderful stay!

Enjoyed our stay in this lovely, historic home on the bank of the Mohawk River. John is friendly and strives to please his guests. He is helpful with dinner recommendations as well as informative about things to do in the area. Breakfast is great, we went with the chef's choice omelette one was delicious...chock full of veggies.

Gorgeous 1800s mansion right on the river. We stayed here because we needed something close to Albany and Saratoga for the weekend. This place is from a bygone era. We felt like we were in a movie- every detail (down to the music John played over breakfast) was perfect.

Great views, cozy furnishings and excellent conversation with guests and our Innkeeper; enjoyed the location and our stay.

I love this place, and John is a great host. Close to Saratoga, yet a romantic and quiet place for the evening, overlooking the Mohawk River

I was at Oakcliff this past weekend and the experience was wonderful...from the beautiful antiques, all perfectly set to the period, to the night spent in a heavenly comfortable feather bed. A refreshing morning with a shower in the beautiful marble tile bathroom, then down to a very delicious breakfast with a cup fresh French pressed coffee...Mmmm. Breakfast was what anyone would have expected and beyond, the table was set in fine linen and China to enhance the experience of being in a fine Victorian house. The day was mine... to look around and explore the area...the host was great and a wealth of information. It was hard to leave when we had to go... we will certainly be back...
