Recent Capital, Saratoga reviews

  • Great Vacation Home

    "The house is just minutes from Saratoga Springs yet has the feel of country living. The house is comfortable, well stocked, steps from the lake and a wonderful place for a vacation. Marilyn was a very helpful and accommodating host!"

  • Much more than you could ever wish for

    "What a stunning location, wonderful cottage community, and most friendly reception. Myself and some extended family members recently spent the July 4th week at Jim's. While other friends stayed in and around the Saratoga area, all desired our location and culminated there for the July 4th festivities. The cottage is perfect, although, if the weather is as nice as it was for our stay, the majority of your time will be spent on the lake, down by the dock, or on the patio out back BBQing. A note concerning the lake, I was slightly concerned that the water might still be cool at the time of year we visited; as it is for most lakes in the area that receive mountain snow melt runoff. Cossayuna, however, is quite shallow, so the water was surprisingly very warm. Not at all what we expected. An added bonus to your rental are all the watercraft at your disposal. Don't forget to visit the rope swing on the island. All in all, nothing shy of perfection. Thank you!!!!!"

  • Perfect Getaway

    "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."
