Discover this Gem of the Past as a magnificent Saratoga Springs Inn
Circa 1901, Architect R. Newton Bresee
In 1901 wealth merchant George Crippen built Union Gables to celebrate his success. Designed by R. Newton Bresee it rightfully earned its nickname ‘Sunnyside House’, with its many unique features. The original morning room and the evening room both have tiger maple trim to look like bamboo.
When you visit Union Gables you have an excursion which begins as soon as you walk onto our front porch where people can sit and enjoy the beauty of Saratoga Springs. In a City based on a culture of "See and Be Seen", there is no more refined place to be seen than our piazza.
Entering the mansion through the solid oak door visitors are immediately impressed by the warm oak paneled foyer. It is easy to imagine Crippen's daughters descending the stairs where their gentlemen callers waited under the watchful eye of their Mother. The grandeur of the Edwardian era is enhanced by modern conveniences with the continuous attention to preservation and detailed craftsmanship. Unlike most Inns and Bed and Breakfasts, the bedrooms are large with up to date fixtures.
They say the three most important things in real estate are location, location, location. Union Gables is in the heart of Saratoga's Historic district known as the 'Magic Rectangle', one and a half blocks from the Saratoga Race Course and two blocks to Congress Park. Experience classic Saratoga Springs History as you walk by an array of Victorian homes that line the streets surrounding the Inn. Watch the horses exercise early in the mornings two blocks from the front door or take a stroll through the pathways of Congress park by the Canfield Casino and natural springs. Find Saratoga's restaurants and nightlife an easy five to eight minute walk from Union Gables, and along the way take in all that Saratoga Springs has to offer without the worry of parking downtown.
Union Gables Inn is 30 minutes from Albany International Airport, and 30 minutes to Lake George at the foothills of the Adirondack mountains. One mile to the Saratoga Spa State Park, a National Historic Landmark featuring pools, the Roosevelt Baths and Spa, the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC), acres of walking trails, golf course, and several museums.
