Our second stay with Carol in her quaint home. We were welcomed like old friends.Clean, quiet with excellent breakfasts and comfortable beds. Carol is knowledgeable about the history of the area and was helpful in recommending a restaurant. This will not be our last visit.

If you need a room in Schenectady, I recommend the Van Voast B&B. The establishment was very clean, the bed comfortable and the breakfast tasty. We had a change to our plans & Carol helped us find accommodations for an unplanned night.

We've stayed at the Van Voast B&B several times, coming back for those great breakfasts, never the same always delicious. Carol has always been a great host, knowing so much of the history and sites of the area.

If you need to stay at a place close to Union College, this is the place for you. It's only a few blocks up from the college. The beds are very comfortable and the place is very lovely and clean. I recommend it.

Our stay at the Van Voast House was a pleasant change from hotels on our recent trip across New York. Carol is an excellent host and makes you feel that you are her special guest in her home, not just a paid traveler. The breakfast meals were outstanding and it was nice to visit with Carol during the meals. Carol... More

Van Voast's host, Carol, has created a beautiful environ both inside and out. Today we enjoyed breakfast on the deck looking out over a green garden and colorful lupines and other flowers. Carol cooks up scrumptious and unusual breakfast. Today's fare: spinach on toast topped by an egg plus pumpkin coffee cake and a pear with raspberry. Every day differs,... More

Stayed two nights this weekend. Clean, pleasant, comfortable bed and sheets/towels..and the hostess, Carol, was pleasant and accommodating. Nice breakfast on the back porch, with cut fruit, fresh-baked treat and a cooked entre. It was quite warm, an in-room a/c unit was added for the second night, which solved the problem.

My wife and I stayed here for one night following a family wedding. The accomodations were lovely, and there were nice touches -- some fresh chocolate chip cookies left in the bedroom. Breakfast was very nice and we were able to eat on a covered porch outside. The hostess was very friendly, and was glad to accomodate two extra guests... More
