Reservation system required registering online and then having to call in order to make the actual reservation with a credit card. After those motions, the reservation was confirmed via e-mail, but it didn't matter as we were bumped due to their double-booking our room. Their reservation system is in need of a slight upgrade, to say the least.

I wanted to once again offer sincere apologies for the mix-up with your reservation. We hope the stay at the Medberry Inn that we arranged for you was enjoyable, and that we have the opportunity to change your mind about our establishment in the future. Be well :) More

My husband and I checked into the Lewis House (not far from our wedding/and reception). We had a beautiful room "The Garden Suite", which included a bathroom, complete with claw-foot tub. I have to say, that was one reason I picked this room. I love a bath in a deep tub. All the comforts were available - bubble bath, fresh... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in the Blue Room. It was a very, very, small room with closets full of the family's personal belongings and no room for your own comfort. There were two closets in this room but filled with Christmas decorations and clothing. The room was overfilled with furniture and no place to put... More

Gee, I am really sorry for your experience at our B&B. Christmas is such a wonderful time in our home and the Blue Room is where we store our decorations. We usually store them in the space above the door and in the shelve cabinets along the east wall, but when we are decorating sometimes it seems the closets are... More

Beautiful old renovation home on a quick street in Ballston Spa. 5 minute walk to many shops, bars and restaurants. The burgundy room was very nicely appointed - very comfortable with gas fireplace and a great bathroom. Staff very nice and friendly.

This was out first stay at a B&B and I must say it exceeded my expectations. We spent three evenings over the labor day weekend in the Burgundy room which is very nice.

The Lewis family are just delightful. The house is absolutely beautiful with each room beautifully decorated. Diane fixed a wonderful variety of breakfasts each morning. The coffee was excellent. The location was in walking distance to some wonderful restaurants that Preston recommended to us. I would return to the Lewis House again and again...

We spent 3 nights at The Lewis House in the Blue Room . We had a wonderful time. Madison served a delicious breakfast and we had great conversation with Preston Lewis and the other guests. Location is great for walking around Ballston Spa and enjoying the restaurants. Also close to Saratoga Springs. We will definitely stay here again.
