Perfect house for recent bachelor party / track weekend

  • 5 of 5

Mary and Craig were great hosts and their lakehouse was perfect for a recent bachelor party. Just minutes to nearby golf courses and racetrack and plenty of yard games (tennis, frisbee, footballs, fishing) and amenities (grill, kayaks) provided. Highly recommend this house for a guys' trip to Saratoga. Thank you Mary and Craig!

The home was perfect!! Could not have asked for anything better.

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 14 friends staying there for a concert weekend. Everybody's expectations were far exceeded interns of the property and inside space. We had the best time. Also, Mary was such a delight to work with. We will definitely come back!

Excellent Host!

  • 5 of 5

My biggest pet peeve is an unresponsive host. Mary is NOT that, she is excellent. We had a storm blow in on our first night there, taking out all the power for several hours. Mary made sure we were set with flashlights and kept us up to date on when the power would return. Her rental was exactly what we were looking for and we had a blast. This place is on our list of places to return to in the future. Thanks for everything Mary!
