Perfect!

This was our second stay at Moon’s Lakehouse and it was just as great as the first. Nothing beats the view from the deck! Mary and Craig were extremely helpful before and after the trip. Highly recommended!

Overall GREAT option in Saratoga

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a house that can sleep a number of people in a quiet, scenic location, yet be close to the track and downtown, Moon's Lakehouse is where you want to go. You are no more than 10 minutes from anywhere you want to go, and transportation is readily available with taxis or Uber. You'll have full use of the lawn, tennis court, patio and of course the lake.

Mary was fantastic to work with. She is responsive and will make sure you have everything you need to have a great week or weekend. I would highly recommend Moon's Lake House.
