Recent Capital, Saratoga reviews
"This is a wonderful townhouse overlooking Saratoga Lake. I could not have imagined a more beautiful location to share precious family time together. Other than food and clothing, everything we needed was readily available for us to use. Ray, the owner, was extremely helpful in our planning. Although there are a few steps to navigate on the first floor, having a full master suite on that floor made it technically "handicapped accessible". I would definitely like to return to this rental in the future!"Guest: Diane C. Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: September 7, 2014View listing
"Three couples had the pleasure of spending a long weekend in this immaculate and extremely well-located home. The pictures don't do it justice--it is larger than it looks, impeccably appointed, and very comfortable. The bedding was perfect for our group, and the deck is a wonderful addition that fair weather guests will love. While the house itself is located in an unusual place, it is a very short walk to Broadway and all the great stores and restaurants in Saratoga Springs. And it was a pleasure to deal with Bobbie. She was prompt, forthcoming with advice, and accommodating. This group has rented homes in various cities for several years and this is easily one of the nicest. As one other reviewer said, our only regret was that we were only there for a long weekend."Guest: Sandy Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: October 25, 2014View listing
"We just spent a week at this cottage and had a wonderful time. Being able to canoe right from the property was great and the waterfront view was spectacular. The property was as described and came with everything needed. Aside from many spots to visit on the Sacandaga, we hiked some trails to other lakes in Fulton County and visited Saratoga Springs; great location."Guest: Joanna B.
