Why the Owner Chose Saratoga Springs, NY, USA:
We wanted to get out of the hubbub on NYC and be back near family. Saratoga is the ideal location because it is so beautiful here and there is so much to do. We fell in love with this house due to the unique architecture and the beautiful trees which will cast their spell on you as well.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Saratoga is well situated near outdoor recreation options in the Adirondacks and locally, and has all the services you may need. It has long been a haven for people retreating from the City during the hot summers, and still maintains its small town charm. People love the shopping and dining options as well as the nightlife downtown, just steps away from our home.
