Central air conditioning! Our home rents for $4,500 weekly during the track season.
We are open to rental periods less than a week in length though we have a minimum rental fee of $2,500 year round for any period that includes all or part of a weekend.
Our 125 year old home is located in a quiet, desirable, historic neighborhood just a 2 block stroll to the Saratoga Racecourse or the city's lively downtown full of unique shops, a wide variety of restaurants, live music, art and history.
Located in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, Saratoga Springs is a year round destination. In addition to the 6 week Racecourse season where some of the finest thoroughbred racing has been taking place for 150 years. we also enjoy many museums, the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Skidmore College, wonderful theater & music and an abundance of outdoor activities.
We have been renting and exchanging our home for over 25 years. Since we are vacation renters ourselves we know what makes vacationers happy. Our kitchen is well appointed, the beds are comfortable,the linens ample,nice furniture and attention to detail throughout our home. You'll enjoy our classic Saratoga porch for cocktails and the screened in porch for summer dining.
A short drive will have you in 'the Queen of Lakes', Lake George, or stay in town and make an evening of it by attending the Jazz Fest, NYC Ballet, Opera, Philadelphia Orchestra a rock concert or an evening at the oldest coffeehouse in the U.S., Caffe Lena.The community supports many artists who love to share their work with visitors in a wonderful variety of venues.
The drive from the south to Saratoga Springs through the historic Hudson River Valley is a treat not to be missed. A designated National Heritage area, the Hudson is one of America's 14 great rivers. The area enjoys world class arts and cultural attractions including lighthouses, mansions, museums, performing arts centers, waterfalls, president's and artists homes and numerous historic houses.
Hiking & watersports are within easy reach of our home as are day trips to Lake Placid or other Adirondack attractions though we think you won't want to leave. Should you wish to stay here as 'home base' we are only 3 hrs. from Montreal, New York City & Boston.

Why the Owner Chose Saratoga Springs, NY, USA:
We have lived in our year round home in Saratoga Springs for 29 years. We were immediately attracted to the location and style of this house and it has served us well. We are fortunate to live in such a fun and desirable destination and continue to enjoy all Saratoga has to offer both residents and visitors alike.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Aside from the spacious and comfortable space our home has to offer the number one feature is probably its location. One can walk and ride bikes everywhere. We are literally a 5 minute walk to the most popular sites in town yet still enjoy a quiet friendly neighborhood with wonderful restaurants, shopping, cultural venues, Skidmore College and of course the tracks and horse show arenas. Walk down the street in the morning with your cup of coffee to watch the horses train, play all day and go see a concert or Ballet at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center at night. You won't be able to see and do it all which is one of the reasons visitors tend to return to Saratoga again and again. We're happy to point you in the right direction as there are activities to suit all tastes and we know where to find them. We are also experienced home exchangers should you wish to explore that avenue with us, it's a wonderful way to travel.
