Made a reservation months in advance... and the owner phoned a week and a half prior to our stay and cancelled. Not because of a personal conflict - rather a "regular customer" would like the evening we have reserved. We reserved two rooms. It's an event weekend and places are booked. We will NOT ever recommend this place - now... More

When visiting family, we usually stay elsewhere. Found this hidden gem here (tripadvisor) & will be back! Lovely guest house with three rooms, each with private bath. Excellent common area with coffee and kitchen. Welcoming hostess/owner was welcoming and accommodating. Across the street from the beautiful Arkell Hall property. Walkable to downtown canjo and directly behind the Erie Canal bike... More

My husband and I were in Canajoharie for a friends 50th bday party and booked this B and B for a one night stay. I believe it is now called the Gardens Edge Guest House. We were pleasantly surprised upon check in. The innkeeper Patricia was very welcoming. The guest house was in fantastic condition, immaculately clean with charming decor.... More

When I booked an overnight room here I was expecting an en-suite room in the main part of the house. I was in-fact shown to a house down the road with a shared bathroom, but I kept an open mind. Before we unpacked I had a look around. The property for some reason did not have main lighting, only lamps... More

We stayed here while cycling the Erie Canal. It was just what we needed. Nice accomodations within walking distance of town. A do-it-yourself breakfast was included. Our room was large with a private bath.

Lucky enough to have family in "Canjo," we discovered the WINDOW BOX when we were all a bit younger. And were thrilled this time that the Grainers HAD installed grab bars in the baths! (And it is sort of amazing to get an ENTIRE bar of Yardley every time. But do bring your own shampoo and conditioner!) They offer bottled... More

We picked Window Box for three nights for cycling on the Erie Canal. It was an inspired choice. Tom & Patty were marvellous hosts, making restaurant recos (& reservations!!), cultural/interest sidetrip suggestions and providing mouth watering breakfasts. The location is great for cycling as you can head out for a good distance in both directions. But the highlight was the... More

This was a lovely place to stay for one night. There were some nice restaurants within walking distance. The bath was shared, but luckily this night we were the only guests. Breakfast was hardy and delicious, which because we were biking 40 miles that day was important to us.

Went to the area for a family visit, Patty and Tom were super friendly and made us feel like family. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, they had a nice selection of coffees and snack items waiting for us in the kitchen. Will definitely stay here the next time we come to visit. Highly recommend well above anything else... More

“Each of the three rooms in the guest house had private baths. One room had a double bed, while the other two had queen size (one with a beautiful 4 poster!). All were nicely appointed, quiet and comfortable.”
