... maze, lets just say it was a little *************quer that the first one. After about an hour in the second maze and a "little short cut" we found our way to the end - VICTORY! The day at the farm finished with donuts and apple cider, yum yum yum!! After relaxing at home for the afternoon, Cath announces we are going out to dinner to a place called Smokey Bones and Grill - the food ...
... into the distant. Gorgeous gorgeous place and oh so green, so different to back home. On the way back, we called into a shop that sold a lot of novelty giftware, which had us all in stitches from laughing so much. We also stopped at some covered bridges in Bennington which remind me so much of Bridges of Madison County. All round great day, getting to see so much and everything so different to home. ...
... It would be magical in winter time with all the snow around. After dinner we went for a walk around the streets with Cath and it is so lovely to see the different style of housing here in Niskayuna compared to home. Cath and Michael's home is gorgeous and very spacious. We were both very tired so had an early night and before we knew it it was 9.45 am the next morning. Enjoying the slower pace of Niskayuna after being on the go for 5 days in ...
... a photo op, they know how to capture the moment in pictures!!....so I missed taking a pic of them taking a pic!! You would have thought they were the paparazzi shooting a celebrity. They were on it and the squirrel was working it!!
Niagara Falls was pretty cool. It wasn't originally on my list of places to go to but we were right there so we felt the need to say we did it. We did it and ...

Fell free to keep posted here as well as the wordpress one. I am going to have an exhibition at the end of the semester for studio, hopefully, so I am going to post updates about my progress on that.
Hope everyone is doing well! Can't believe it's almost October and I am going to be 21, a fully grown adult, in just 18 days. WOW!

Historical Traveler Reviews Morgan State House Albany
What a Place!!
I have had a chance to stay at the State House a few times now and it simply gets better and better. I would have no qualms about recommending it to anyone who needs to be in Albany, or anyone who just wants to go to Albany and spend a wonderful few days surrounded by elegance, comfort and attention. Even if you don't have to go to Albany...GO!....just to stay here!
Quaint and Fabulous!
We had an absolutely wonderful experience staying at the Morgan State House. The alluring smell of breakfast served downstairs was the only motivator to get us up out of the extremely comfortable bed. The bathroom was delightful and there were two robes for us to use. The State House is close to museums, restaurants and bars. We look forward to a future stay!
A Rare Find
This gem in the heart of a small, charming city is underpriced. The depth of service is unmatched outside of destination spas. The high-thread-count bedclothes, the luxurious terrycloth robes, and the immaculate common spaces befit inns and B&Bs costing twice the price. Friendly staff willing to do anything asked of them, tips about bars and restaurants (including whom to speak to at the front door), service that includes the owner riding guests to the gated parking lot around the block; who gets this type of help in today's market? If your stay is for pleasure or your business requires peace and quiet, you must get reservations at the Morgan Statehouse. It will amaze you.
Excellence in Albany
I live in New York City and often travel to Albany, a few years ago I discovered The Morgan State House, and I can truly say that it was a great find. Being use to excellent service in Manhattan, I can say that the Morgan State House meets every high standard that I expect from a Bed and Breakfast.
Wedding Night - Amazing!
We stayed in 4B (king with large tub). Everything was perfect. Wonderful staff. The garden was gorgeous. My new in-laws stayed in 808 (queen, condo with beautiful city view) and they absolutely loved the room. The robes were cozy and fresh. Breakfast was delicious and they even have their own blend of coffee. We loved the hotel so much that we bought a down bed set for ourselves. (They gave us a discount for being a guest). If you are in the Albany area, you must stay at the Morgan State House. 5 STARS out of 5.
first of all, I stayed in one of the rooms in the Washington Park State House, so I have no knowledge of the rooms inthe main house.
Warm and Wonderful
Just returned to Florida from a weekend trip to Albany. The weather was cold but the Morgan State House was warm and wonderful. The staff was courteous and the accomodations perfect. The room, 4th floor front, was spacious and clean. The beds are heaven. The inn was decorated beautifully for the holidays. Highly recommended.
Lovely place, polite and helpful staff
had a terrific, luxurious weekend. no complaints whatsoever...
Quiet area within walking distance of many restaurants
We stayed here for one evening. We were in the Master Suite on the top floor. The room was nice, but alittle off. Nothing major, but just little things that I wouldn't have expected in a room that we were paying $200/night for. There was peeling paint and the big window was broken.
It was clean and comfortable with very gracious hosts.
Breakfast was self serve communal of juices, coffee, bagels and other baked good with two choices of an egg dish (one with meat and one without).
The garden was well kept.
I would recommend this inn because it was convenient, quiet and safe. I'm not sure I'd stay in one of the higher priced rooms again though because I'm not sure it was worth the price.
If you are traveling to Albany on busines or pleasure I highly recommend the Morgan State House Bed and breakfast.
The fee was reasonable, the rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. However, the thing that really sets this place apart is Janine and the rest of the staff. They really make you feel at home.
The state house is not only beautiful and well maintained but also within walking distance to Empire State Plaza and the Capital building.
If you want a nice steak and and a cocktail after your business meeting I highly recommend Mcguires. All in all, I was very surprised and pleased with the quality of these accomodations. Happy Travels,Don
