Other Things to Note
There is a two night minimum on weekends during the peak season, May through October.
The Gallery Inn was lovely, comfortable, light-filled and nicely decorated. My husband and I loved the space and slept well on the comfy bed. We arrived late on a Friday and were able to get in with a code to the lockbox that Nancy supplied. The next day as we were heading out for lunch, she popped out of her gallery downstairs and greeted us and invited us to her event that night. We would have loved to have gone, but we were only in town for a quick weekend trip and had made plans to see as much as we could. But we will definitely return to stay at this great place! And thank you, Nancy, for the bottle of wine! It was great!
The neighborhood is quaint and easy to get around. Great restaurants, shops, coffee. An easy drive to Uptown Kingston too.
Nancy was a wonderful hostess. We felt welcome from the first moments. The space is beautiful and done with an artistic flair. This was like living in a spacious, clean and comfortable gallery, just as described. Nancy clearly has a thoughtful and accommodating touch. We felt cared for the entire stay. Very highly recommended!

My partner and I had a delightful time staying at the Gallery Inn. Nancy was very helpful and the loft was clean and homey. It was also a great spot to launch from, whether to spend the day at Grounded, the awesome coffee shop just a few shops down, or to take day trips to Rhinebeck and the like. My partner came here for a "working vacation" and got exactly the break from the city we were looking for.
Nancy was very quick to respond to my request and was helpful with activity recommendations. The apartment was pretty much as described. It is a nice space for a couple. The only negatives are that there is no freezer (=no ice for drinks), the hot water didn't last long enough for my taste, and the wifi was slow at times. Other things I learned: the coffee shop right down the street, Grounded, is really good. The cab companies are really bad. We rented a car a few miles away, but getting there and back was not fun.
We had a wonderful time at the Gallery Inn. The apartment is beautifully appointed and decorated, and receives plenty of light. It is warm and comforting. The complimentary bottle of wine and nightcap were also very welcome surprise additions. We would love to return again sometime!
Nancy is a perfect host and she has such an amazing space with beautiful furniture and decor. The location is great, which is close by all the cafes, galleries, restaurants, and the waterfront. The complimentary bottle of wine was a nice treat!
