Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedroom, 2 Bath, (Sleeps 9)

This unique and charming country house is surrounded by rolling farmland but is only 8 miles from downtown Saratoga Springs. A long wooded driveway gives the house privacy and seclusion; it is not visible from the road. The back deck has sweeping views of farmland, while the front deck overlooks the valley. The house is situated on five acres of a former apple orchard, and many fruit-bearing trees continue to thrive on the property.

This is the perfect year-round getaway. For families interested in beginner mountains for skiing or snowboarding there is Willard Mountain in Easton (you can see the back of the mountain from the house) or West Mountain near Glens Falls, both about 30 minutes away. For more advanced skiers/boarders there is Gore Mountain, about 50 minutes away.

The house is a classic post and beam structure with an open floor plan, ideal for entertaining. A two-story cathedral ceiling opens over the kitchen and dining space. The decor is Adirondack, with numerous antiques throughout.

Nearby Saratoga Springs offers horse racing, museums, shopping, restaurants, a farmers' market, and countless other attractions. Local farms offer opportunities to pick your own apples, blueberries, and other produce when in season. A fully outfitted kayak shop operates seasonally on Fish Creek, just 3 miles up the road.

peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property. It is such a peaceful and relaxing spot. The view was great and we had the best weather to enjoy it. The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We hope to return for another stay.

Gorgeous property; Comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this property. As advertised, it is completely private in every direction. The open fields off the back are really lovely. The back deck is a great place for an al fresco meal or a drink at sunset! And we LOVED the outdoor shower!!

Everything was clean and well cared-for. Linens and towels were nice and the beds very comfortable. The kitchen is well-stocked and the wifi worked great. The living room is decorated in the Adirondack style with comfortable furniture.

Chris goes to a lot of effort to make the house an attractive and enjoyable vacation stay. You're several miles from town, but it is only about a short drive to the restaurants and shops of Saratoga. We had no problem getting a taxi on the night we didn't want to drive. It's amazing to be in such a beautiful, quiet and private spot and yet be so close to the Saratoga attractions.

We definitely would recommend the house to prospective visitors, and we look forward to coming back ourselves!

Great place to see the leaves change

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying on the property. The house was comfortable and offered plenty of space for comfortable movie watching and reading, and the property offered plenty of wooded spots for my kids to explore.

Very Rustic w/ beautiful views and wildlife

  • 3 of 5

We loved the outdoor shower (was the best feature & better of the 2 indoor showers) the home is on a gorgeous piece of land with wild turkeys, deer, fox, rabbits and fun trees to climb! The home was well stocked with everything you would need, the best being the cozy robes provided!!

However, other then the King bed, the mattresses in all of the other rooms were horrible and very uncomfortable :( Also no Wi Fi which in this day & age is very important. It rained a good bit while we were there & the dirt driveway got a little washed out/muddy. The front deck was unusable/dangerous. And the stairs to get up to the back deck/entrance from the driveway were in need of being redone. 2 of our guests fell on the bottom one. No outside lighting which made navigating coming in even more difficult. Would suggest flood lights on a sensor.

If your looking for something modern, this would not be the home for you but if you want peace & quiet, its a beautiful place!
