Saratoga Springs house description
They say treasure can be found at the end of a rainbow…. in this case it can also be found on the Putnam Brook. Before continuing on its way to Saratoga State Park, the Brook cuts a deep gorge in a wooded plateau. There, straddling both banks lies the pot of gold! A 10-acre oasis of wilderness turned into a private park, secluded picnic area on a river bank with a fire pit and a cantilevered deck overlooking the valley. The only creatures you may have to share the treasure with, will be the Birds, Deer, wild Turkey and Turtles often seen along the picturesque nature trail.
Now you have the treasure map, bring yourself and the family, not excluding the four legged friends to enjoy a summer of quiet luxury.
The house designed and owned by a European interior designer and her writer husband, combines beauty with comfort. Filled with original artwork, a mixture of antique and modern furniture, warmed by a fireplace and cooled by central air system, it offers a view of nature from each of its huge windows.
Along with the morning coffee, step out onto the wraparound deck and patio to let the fresh air breathe life into a new day. Fantastic views of the lawn and woods can be enjoyed from the two balconies attached to the bedrooms on the second floor.
With beauty found in every corner, let your senses drown in the luxurious surroundings of the…. spacious living room, dining room and gourmet kitchen fit for entertainment….and once you’re done with entertaining head to one of the most tranquil spots of the house. The library; separated from the hallway by a glass pocket door and filled with books, has a glass outer façade looking out at the brook, providing the perfect spot for meditation.
It can be easily transformed to a place of joy and family fun and entertainment room with access to both DVD, cable TV.
The main living, the place of comfort and casual elegance. Hardwood flooring, Persian rugs, European antique furniture and comfortable sofas…. accented with original paintings of race horses and ballerinas. The cathedral ceiling adds to the grandeur but the high efficiency fireplace, and a central air conditioning provides for perfect environment.
The dining room separated from the living room by two columns and open to the southern deck through a sliding glass door. The large table, perfect for an elegant dinner party can accommodate 12 people, with enough space left for all of the wonderful food created in the kitchen.

This was the perfect house to spend a week gathering family while celebrating our daughter's wedding in Saratoga. Every aspect of the house and property was inviting and relaxing. There are many lovely spots to sit and visit. Hands down, our favorite gathering place was at the kitchen table with the comfy curved banquette along the windows. The house had everything we needed and more. We did not need to go out to eat and we did not want to. The bedrooms are located on the upper and basement levels which allowed guests to have private, quiet and peaceful areas for retreat. The owners are lovely people and we are full of gratitude for them sharing their wonderful home with us.

We don't want to be too repeticious, but we echo other recent reviews. This beautiful home was as much and more than we expected. We were able to enjoy all aspects of this home and property from the hot tub to the patios and to just exploring the large property. We were here during the Saratoga Race meet and really enjoyed going to the races and then returning for wine and munchies on the patio. We certainly hope to return.

We recently returned from two wonderful weeks of family vacation at this lovely home. Our experience was outstanding and all descriptions are accurate. As other reviewers have mentioned, the home is even better than the pictures, The kitchen is well-stocked for preparing family meals, the grill works well, and the home is comfortable and tastefully decorated. After walking the beautifully landscaped grounds and relaxing on the deck, we often skipped plans to go into town since we enjoyed our surroundings so much. The location is a wonderful mix of grounds to explore and proximity to shopping, restaurants, racing, and more. Grazyna and Kris are welcoming and helpful hosts and we certainly plan to return!

Classy artistic and peaceful

The house is set in a lovely glade with surrounding wood so a lovely large lawn but privacy and some shade. It's design takes advantage of the setting and looks traditional from the outside. Inside its contemporary with natural finishes, wooden floor, slate, stone. Beautiful. It flows along through its open plan layout. Favourite spots were the breakfast nook and the library. Grazyna is very gracious and kind and a perfect host. Her stories were very interesting in the brief time we spoke, as she really respects your privacy. There were pictures of her husband kris with lech walesa during the polish revolution, fascinating. I so enjoyed watering the plants, and silently wandering around the grounds. In early evening my 6 year old daughter and I stood and let the fireflies buzz around us, she said it was like stars had fallen from the skies. I am an art lover and grazyna's house is full of original pieces,which I really enjoyed. This is a peaceful comfortable house but within 5 minutes of town, a great combination. Our hostess was trusting, respectful and the house was immaculate. Thanks again we would love to come back.

Better than anticipated

My group of friends were celebrating our 37th college reunion and celebrated at this house and we could not have asked for more. We were four couples who all agreed we would go back in a heartbeat. The previous reviews helped make decision. So I wanted to share my experience also. All the beautiful pictures of the house and description was right on the money. I was a little nervous starting this process because it was the first time I ever did this before but I knew immediately after contacting the owners that I made the right choice. They were so helpful and made the whole decision perfect. Not only couldn't I wait to celebrate with old friends but couldn't wait to meet the owners. No one was disappointed and I'm so extremely grateful for the warm welcoming we received. The stay from start to finish was OUTSTANDING !!!! I assure anyone thinking of this house to not miss the opportunity. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us and we will be returning again.

AWESOME SARATOGA RENTAL
AWESOME SARATOGA RENTAL
Just spent a long weekend in Saratoga for my daughter's wedding. This home was the perfect place to call home for my family's stay. Owners are wonderful people who did a fantastic job in designing their home. Truly, everything was perfect. If there was a sixth star in rating my rental experience, I would not hesitate to give it for this home and it's owners. I will definitely be returning !

After emailing the owners of this beautiful house, I knew it was the place for us! We went to Saratoga Springs,NY for our sons graduation on 3/9/12 through 3/17/13. We were very excited when we pulled up to the house, just beautiful! The inside was just as beautiful, the pictures do not show you just how beautiful the place is. Inside and out! The owner was there to great us with a warm smile, fire going and fresh flowers :) She showed us around which was very helpful. The house has everything you could want. Very warm and inviting. When our children arrived they were just as excited as we were. We had some snow flurrys for a few days and then we got some really good snow!! Being from Ca where it does not snow was an awesome treat for us :) We couldn't have asked for a better place to spend the week with our son. We also had his finance, my daughter and her husband and our 18 month old grandson. The down stairs 1 bedroom has its own kitchen! Everything was perfect. We had everything we needed and all though the owner lived close by, we were left to enjoy our stay in private. Not to far away from town, stores to shop for food and goodies :) Really was made to feel that you were a million miles away from everything. Which is what we were looking for. Such a beautiful home, yard :) Very well taken care of and clean. Oh and the beds were soooo comfy too! Can't say enough about this home, and we have stayed at alot of rentals. NO more hotels for us!! Hoping to come again in the spring time :) I want to thank the Owners for allowing us to vacation in their beautiful home :) If you choose this Chateau.....you will not be sorry. I recommend this property to all of you :) Love Love it!! The Crowleys Escondido, CA

We rented this house for a weekend gathering with old friends. Even though the house is very close to downtown Saratoga, it feels very secluded and private. The house and grounds are just as beautiful, if not more so, as the pictures show. The house has plenty of space if people wanted some privacy, but the living room and kitchen gathering spaces were perfect for us to all be together. We all enjoyed the amenities of the house like the hot tub and fireplace on this winter weekend. The owner is a lovely person, and she was so easy to work with from beginning to end. She went above and beyond accommodating a special request we made to move a TV into the living room area so we could all watch the Superbowl together on Sunday. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us!

My family had the best holiday vacation in this home. We arrived with a fire burning, holiday decorations at their finest and everything you could need was there. It was cozy, roomy, clean and so accommodating for everyone. We had great family connection and the warmth of this property made it easy and essential for a simply perfect event. Everyone is still reminiscing our trip and we couldn't imagine how to improve on such a wonderful home. Can't wait to go back. Thank you for the memory! We will treasure it always.

An amazing house and experience
An amazing house and experience
We celebrated our wedding weekend at this house the weekend of September 8, 2012 and the house was everything we wanted and more! The house is spacious, the decor is beautiful, and the property is spectacular. The owners of the house are the kindest people and very accommodating. On a scale of 1-10, it exceeded our expectations, we give it a 20! I highly recommend this house for a family gateway, a wedding celebration and/or if you want to just get away and enjoy the beautiful and quaint town of Saratoga in a beautiful tucked away house that feels like your home away from home. We give it 5 stars! Thank you Kris and Grazyna for an experience that we will never forget!
