                        Quiet Comfortable Stay in Historic Ballston

                        • Guest Huey (Schenectady Clounty, New York, USA)
                        • Date of stay 06/01/13

                        Our month passed quickly, pleasantly, and comfortably as we genuinely enjoyed our stay necessitated by home renovation. The residence was exactly as pictured and described. The landlord was courteous, amazingly helpful, and exceedingly pleasant to deal with. We heartily recommend this property to anyone desiring a place to stay and have already done so to friends and relations. Although a car is useful for transportation, many services and activities are located within walking distance including bus connections. The cottage location is conveniently close to Capital Region universities; technology centers; museums of racing, dance, and more; cultural centers such as Proctors Theater, Troy Music Hall, Saratoga Performing Arts Center, and others; and sports activities: Saratoga Race Course, collegiate sports, and many golf courses

                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, tourists without a car, girls getaway, sightseeing, age 55+, adventure seekers, families with young children.

                        Owner response: Tom and Ann, Thanks for the great review. And we are also very grateful to you for how you left the place. Not only for the cleanliness but how you left a few things behind for the next renters. Very kind of you. Dave

                        I often travel for extended periods of time for work. (Usually unknown amouts of extended time due to the type of work.) I was on the lookout for a place that didn't share walls with neighbors i.e. hotel, apartments, condos. I also was trying to find a place that allowed a month-to-month style lease agreement, not the easiest thing to find, when this gem of a residence popped up. It is big enough to escape the crampy hotel feel, has private parking right outside the front door (a welcome escape from the hassle of parking lot/structure/on-street parking,) and is nestled in a quiet area. It worked perfectly for me because of it's proximity to work (15 mins. KAPL) It's a short drive to gas stations, restaurants, grocery stores, or downtown. The owner has recently renovated the inside to include new walls, new floors, new kitchen appliances, and a new bathroom. I felt lucky to find this place. The owner was a very accomodating landlord. Although I didn't have any problems with the place, he made clear that he was available if need be. I you are looking for a reasonably sized and easily accessible guest house, I would recommend this house. It has all of the amenities of home and none of the hassles or red tape associated with most apartment complexes. Comfortable, cozy, and clean. Like i said, perfect for this work traveler who is unsure of how long each assignment will be.

                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, sightseeing, age 55+, adventure seekers, families with young children.

                        Owner response: Thanks for the great review Josh. Glad to have you here. Hopefully if you come back we can get you up to Galway for some fishing. Happy Trails.-Dave

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1995

                      About the owner: I grew up on this property. Left for several years then bought it from my mother in 1995. I own my own business and this is my only rental. My wife and I live next door with our two boys.

                      Why the Owner Chose Ballston:
                      I own a business which requires travel and living out of suitcases for one or two weeks at a time. I started renting places for my work travel from VRBO. I found they were more comfortable than motels and typically less expensive. So we have modeled this cottage into a home from home. With some real experience and insight on what travelers might like, we hope you get a chance to enjoy our place.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Very private. Quiet families live on either side. It's so nice to have the parking right at the front door. Skip the hotel and enjoy a home away from home.
