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.

Wonderful rustic house

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Christopher's Saratoga house over New Year's. It was perfect for 8 people and a dog to spread out and be comfortable. It was freezing outside, but the heat worked excellently. We would have loved to have used the fireplace, but understand that we couldn't for insurance purposes.

Great country home with beautiful views. Loved the outdoor shower.

  • 5 of 5

Chris has done a great job with with the property. I would definitely stay here again.

-The beds were comfortable and rooms had great a.c.

-Wi-Fi speed was excellent- I was able to stream video with no issues.

- The outdoor shower is a unique experience for those of us who live in crowded city.

- The property feels private and secluded yet is only 15-20 minutes to Saratoga - an easy Uber ride.

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.
