About Bobbie Lucas

I have lived in Saratoga Springs since 1990. I am an interior designer and former Antique Store and home decorating center owner in Saratoga. I love making beautiful spaces; indoors and out! I created this home specifically as an upscale vacation property. I want guests to feel like they are in an amazing place with attention to every detail.

Bobbie Lucas purchased this house in 2013

Why Bobbie Lucas chose Saratoga Springs

Railroad House rivals the best hotels in Saratoga Springs, only better and at a more affordable price. Enjoy off street parking right in front of your door, two great outdoor areas to enjoy the weather, grill and eat al fresco. Walk everywhere, no worries about finding parking downtown.

What makes this house unique

Absolutely immaculate , strictly a vacation rental, so no 'home owner clutter' ! Every amenity is high end. From the dishware ,glassware, utensils, bedding and towels. Fully stocked with Starbucks Coffee, tea, paper towels, toilet tissue, kitchen supplies (ie soap, spices, olive oil etc) bath soaps, and more!

Laundry room with full size front loading machines, ironing board, iron and detergent!

5 Star Hotel - only better!

  • 5 of 5

This property is fantastic! We were in the Saratoga area to attend a family wedding. Our family, consisting of my husband and me and our two adult children and their significant others, found the house to be warm, charming and provided privacy yet allowed us to gather and enjoy each other's company. Truly a gem! The location is perfect as well - walk to all the restaurants and shops! We were the envy of our extended family who stayed in hotels and dealt with the unfortunate issues of smelly rooms, etc.! A must while you're in Saratoga - Hattie's Fried Chicken - fun atmosphere and delicious. I would skip The Local for food - it may be a good bar but the food was not very good. Thank you for making our introduction to Saratoga Springs a very memorable one!

Railroad House Was Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We chose Saratoga Springs for our "friends in the hood" trip because we wanted to see the area during the fall of the year. (We learned that we would be referred to as "leaf peepers" )😊�

Railroad House was perfect for us. It is a very nice home and Bobbi couldn't have been more accommodating. There was nothing that we needed that wasn't there for us.

The location of RH was great for us to be able to walk to the shops and restaurants. And there was plenty of space to park our car. We drove to Manchester Vermont one day and truly enjoyed the beautiful drive.

We hope to someday return to this area and will most definitely plan a trip when the Railroad House is available if possible.

Beautiful home with all the ammentities, close to downtown

  • 4 of 5

House was perfect for our 3 couples, plenty of room for all of us to spread out. This is one of the most well stocked VRBO homes I've rented. We really enjoyed the 5 - 6 block walk to downtown. We were in town for my nephew's wedding and could walk to restaurants to easily meet other family.

Owner's Response: I find it sad and disappointing that the only review received to date that is less than 5 Star is (coincidentally) from the ONLY guest I have ever needed to withhold a portion of the security deposit. I was quite generous to withhold only $250.00 for a LIST of damages, including hiring professional carpet cleaners. I would also like to the respond to the mention of being 5-6 block from downtown. My property IS DOWNTOWN. I am 3 Blocks to the main street of "Broadway". In most cities in the USA a city block is between 1/16 and 1/8 of a mile. 1/8 x 3 =.37 of a mile. From my front door to Broadway is .32 of a mile.

Stunning Home & Excellent Service

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do this new, beautiful, professionally decorated house justice! The house is absolutely perfect (especially for 3 couples!) We attended a wedding in Saratoga and only wish we could have spent more time enjoying all the Railroad House has to offer! Bobbie is an amazing host and went above and beyond to make us feel so welcome!

We hope to return to the Railroad House in season as the location to town is great!! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

My family recently stayed at this house. It is extremely comfortable and has everything that you could imagine you would need and more. The house is very convenient to downtown. It is very large and accommodates 6 very easily. If we go to this town again with a large group, we definitely will take advantage of this house.

Staying here is a must

  • 5 of 5

This home has it all. It is incredibly gorgeous, well maintained and looks brand new. Hardwood and carpet. Three lovely bedrooms. Everything and I mean everything is provided. The owner even purchased casseroles for us because we mentioned them. The house is beautifully decorated. Cable and even a large selection of movies are provided. All toiletries, laundry and kitchen detergent provided as well as paper products including ziplock bags. The refrigerator had spring water, beer and tea and a snack basket on the counter was full of goodies. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and the sofas were also very comfortable. The master bath even had bathrobes The porch outside had a string of lights and a water fountain. The landscaping is very pretty. The home is a short walk to the Main Street downtown which was very convenient. Parking was right in front of the home. We would recommend anyone stay at this home. It was just lovely.
