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 Capital, Saratoga

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!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful and meticulously maintained. In addition to everything you could need, there were lots of little extras and thoughtful touches. Owner was responsive and pleasant. The immediate surroundings are not picturesque, but it's a 5 minute walk to the center of town with easy access to all surrounding major roads. We've already booked a return trip.

Owner's Response: Philip, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at Railroad House. I am always happy to have such thoughtful, conscientious guests. I look forward to your return visit. Next year the "view" across the street will be greatly improved with a new Victorian Style building being constructed. Bobbie

Excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent house and accommodations at the Railroad House! I am an avid VRBO renter and consider myself to be very picky when looking for a rental. The Railroad House exceeded my expectations! The house was very comfortable and the owner thought of everything! The house was well stocked and very clean upon our arrival. The location is great - within walking distance to the cute main drag of Saratoga Springs. Highly recommend it!!

Fantastic Week

  • 5 of 5

For the past 15 years, we have stayed in various hotels in Saratoga Springs during racing season. This year we decided to try something different, and we are glad we did. The Railroad House was such a better fit. Bobbie Lucas has created a wonderful option to traditional hotels in close proximity to Broadway and the track. We found the Railroad House to be beautifully appointed, immaculate and stocked with every necessity imaginable. When asked for suggestions on improvements, we couldn't think of a thing. Our first response after our vacation was to book again for next year!

You've found your spot for a Saratoga Springs get away!! I know we certainly have found the place we're staying every time we go. Awesome house, and the owner is rock star. Sooooo much better than a hotel, and walking distance to downtown! Stop thinking about it and just book! ...... or don't.... I need it to be available when I want to come back. ;)

Attention Skidmore Parents

  • 5 of 5

CUTE house within walking distance of Skidmore College and even more important, close to Broadway, the best shopping street for a hundred miles. The house is pristine and very comfortable, on a quiet, shady street. The owner has really thought of everything a traveler might need during their stay and generously provided. Our family was very happy there during our too-brief visit to Saratoga Springs.
