Great rental property

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Moon's Lakehouse for the weekend for a friend's bachelor party. We stayed in early April and the weather was unfortunately very bad so we didn't get to enjoy the outdoor property as much as we would have liked. I can imagine how much better the property would have been during the summer, with the outdoor bar and grill area, as well as the tennis courts and the beach. Even still we had a great weekend and Mary and Craig were very friendly and accommodating. No complaints.

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!

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!
