Gardner Farm Inn: Céad Mile Fáilte

Looking to get away for a night or a weekend? Look no further than upstate New York’s historic Gardner Farm Inn in Troy.Situated just a three-hour drive
from New York City and Boston, Gardner Farm Inn is the getaway that’s close to home yet a world apart.
Built in 1790 and established in 2015 by proprietor John Hughes, the Inn has five comfortable guest rooms, each with its own private, ensuite bath, and includes a
full American breakfast. “I wanted to share some of the good ole Irish hospitality I grew up with in my family.” said Hughes, whose family hails from
Tipperary and County Down. “Everyone was welcome in our home, and I want to continue that tradition at Gardner Farm Inn.”

The Inn’s eclectic décor is a must-see.
Each room is decorated in its own unique style and named for noted artists, authors and performers like Oscar Wilde, Josephine Baker and Mae West.
The Inn pays homage to its historic roots yet has a classic, contemporary feel.
“This isn’t Grandma’s bed and breakfast!” laughs Hughes. The Inn is also a repository for many of Hughes’ varied collections.

Due to Covid-19, the Inn has established protocols to keep guests and staff safe. Rooms are unoccupied for 72 hours prior to your arrival, masks are
worn in public areas, and social distancing is required. “We always took cleaning seriously, but in this day and age it’s paramount.” said Hughes. “We
also take advantage of the beautiful weather to serve breakfast outdoors when possible.”

And speaking of breakfast, Gardner Farm Inn’s breakfasts are not to be missed. Fresh ingredients are prepared daily which can include berries with
yogurt, omelets, frittatas, or the Inn’s signature French toast.

Troy itself is a to-be-discovered gem on the banks of the Hudson River. Troy’s architecturally-rich downtown has many fine shops and eateries to enjoy.
And don’t miss the incredible Saturday morning Farmer’s Market held year-round downtown. In and around Troy and Rensselaer County you’ll find
antiquing, wineries and small museums.

If you enjoy the outdoors, there’s hiking, cycling, kayaking and swimming nearby. And as the weather changes,
enjoy autumn hikes, apple picking, leaf-peeping and skiing.
