Talford the Terrific!!
Such a perfect location and set up - we had 3 couples and were so very comfortable. The location is amazing - walk to track AND walk downtown - couldn't be better. Tim was very easy to work with - very flexible, responsive and welcoming! The house was clean and very comfortable - with everything you could possibly need for amenities. We will definitely be back again next year and THIS time will be cashing tickets :) Thanks for a most enjoyable trip to Saratoga!!
We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to seeing you next year and I will try to get some inside tips for you.
Gorgeous house, very clean and right in the middle of all the attractions. We just loved it!
We had a great experince, the house was beautiful and clean. We had tons of fun in the back yard, from the pool, to the grill.. this house has it all, and you still feel like you are home.
It was great meeting you and your pup. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay.
Wow! The best week I have had in Saratoga.
This is our tenth year coming to Saratoga for the races and by far the best place we have stayed in. Tim was great from start to finish. He contacted us prior to arrival to ask if we had "any special requests". I have never had an owner do that before. He greeted us and provided information about the house and town. He checked in to make sure all was well.
The house is wonderful. It was immaculate when we arrived with everything we needed including some lovely Saratoga water. The rooms were comfortable and well stocked. They leave many little things that made a difference from coffee to laundry detergent.
The best part was the pool yard. We spent most of our time outside in the sun by the pool. Great layout and furniture. It is like your own private oasis.
Definately returning next year and years to come!
Thank you Tony. I am glad you and your group enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you next year.
The Best House!
We had a wonderful time in Saratoga Springs. The house was amazing. Immaculately clean and everything was set up for us even down to extra sheets and towels in each room set up in cute totes. We have stayed in many houses. None have been so user friendly to travelers. Everything we needed was supplied for us. The owners were wonderful to work with. Tim checked in with us to make sure all was well several times. Very friendly neighbors as well.
The best part was definitely the yard and pool. We spent most of our time hanging out by the pool when we weren't walking around town. We were left with a guide for town with several restaurant recommendations. Pennells was the best tip and I would strongly recommend to go there if in town.
Can't wait to return and hope to stay here again.
Thank you Sue. So happy to hear you had a great time. See you next year.
RENTER BEWARE - Definitely not child or pet friendly & owner scammed us out of our security deposit
Ok, the positive, main floor is renovated. The pool is great, no diving board like in pic & basketball hoop is broken (no biggie). And location is perfect - a close walk to the restaurants, bars, & the track.
So, we arrived to find a yard full of dog poop & when you're paying this kind of money you would expect not to have to clean up someone else's poop. Then the dog started chewing something & we managed to get to her & pull a piece of water balloon out of her mouth. The dog & little kids could've choked on it. We shouldn't have to clean the yard after the renters before us.
We arrived to dirty trash in the garbage that we took out & gross dirty used sponges in the sink and a foul odor from the disposal. Most rentals provide new clean sponges. This place did not!The dishwasher kept turning off on its own & the dishes came out with food still on them which explained the dirty dishes in the cabinets. The washing machine leaked water & soap when using it.
My two year old nephew picked something off the floor the 1st day & I caught it before he put it in his mouth. Ant traps. It was filthy & everywhere. NOT KID/PET FRIENDLY
The house does not sleep 8. 1 twin, 2 fulls (one of which sinks in the middle so you're rolling into the other person), and a queen. This house sleeps 7 UNCOMFORTABLY.
The worst part!!!We left & get home & the owner reaches out saying there were marks on the furniture we were getting charged for. He sent a picture of big dents in the furniture that would clearly have left big pieces of wood on the floor. We're dog & baby people, we scan the floor religiously, not to mention making a mark that big would've made noise. After questioning it to the owner, he sent a picture from before we arrived. We ended up zooming in on the before picture and you could CLEARLY see those marks were already there. We sent him back the evidence it was there before us & even circled it with a big arrow pointing to the marks so that it was clear as day. Yet this guy denied seeing it & said were getting charged for it regardless. We know & he knows we didn't do it. Thanks to him we have proof of it. He was scamming us out of our security. I'm still trying to convince my brother who was the primary renter to take him to small claims court because we have text & photographic CONCRETE proof we didn't do it.
We were suspicious the listing hadn't had a review in 3 years & should've followed those instincts. Don't make the mistake we did!!!
We have been renting our home in Saratoga for 28 years and it has always been our goal to make every renting experience the best we can. We also understand that there are times when some of our guests do not feel they have had a positive experience.
We pride ourselves on being responsive to any problems that may occur in our home and have had very few situations were we have not been able to resolve a problem.
In this situation, we were made aware of some (6) popped water balloons left in the yard from a previous renter. Our lawn / pool service person was dispatched as soon as I received this complaint and toured the lawn to find only a few but none the less he cleaned them up immediately.
As far as the other issues, we were not aware of them until we informed you that we were withholding $100 for the damaged end tables. A rate that we thought was more than fair considering the damage. The only communications, other than the water balloon issue, we received were:
"Hi Tim just checked in about 20 minutes ago and now at the market grabbing a few things. Everything was perfect."
"Tim-Everything was great, thanks for sharing your home with us this summer. We all had a really fun time, Dennis"
I can assure all that we take great pride in our home and work very hard to make sure we provide a clean and comfortable home. We are close by and also have service help to make sure we respond quickly to any issues. We truly wish that every renter enjoys their stay and are saddened to hear when someone feels they did not. We will continue to provide our home and hope future renters have better experiences.

Great house - location couldn't be better.
Home owner was very easy to work with and welcoming. House was clean and just as advertised. Owner even had information about the Saratog area at the house. I will definitely look to rent there again.
The home is located four blocks from the front gate of Saratoga Spa Race Track. Heading west from the main gate on Union Ave you turn right at your first traffic light (Nelson Ave). You then take your fourth left onto Talford Place (Approx .5 miles).
