About Elizabeth Harding
We, Elizabeth and Ryan, love staying in short-term rentals instead of hotels when we travel for work or play. Both raised in the south, we now call NY home but travel as often as we can. Between us we have 5 children so we love weekend couple getaways and family vacations as well. We have our own software business and decided to share our in-law apartment as a way to diversify our income and help pay for our kids' educations. We are on a regular search for good sushi, authentic experiences, and non-touristy fun when we travel.
Elizabeth Harding purchased this Apartment in 2016
Why Elizabeth Harding chose Ballston Spa
We purchased the home in 2016 because it could house both our family and our business. We finished the basement to use for our office and had the apartment available. We like to use it on occasion for visiting family so we did not want to commit to a tenant for a year. That's why we decided to try the short term rental market! We love this area because it has a country feel but is really close to everything. Hours from the city, the mountains, the ocean, and Canada. Can't beat the central location! Locally there is a great mix between indoor and outdoor fun, history and culture, etc.
What makes this Apartment unique
The Zim-Smith trail is a really great benefit of the house. To be able to walk across the lawn and access paved trail for miles means there is no excuse for not getting out and moving. We also love that there is a playground right down the trail and that the gas station is an easy walk and sells ice cream. The deck is another feature of the house we love. After a long winter there is not much better than sitting on the deck and eating food hot off the grill.

The Hideaway is an outrageous place to stay! We stayed for a few nights to attend a few concerts at SPAC, and this was a perfect place to stay. Very tidy, comfortable, stylish, and well-equipped, we’ll stay at the Hideaway anytime a trip to Saratoga is in order.
Thanks for a lovely stay!
The Hideaway has it all
Sparkling clean and a stocked kitchen, the Hideaway was excellent. The bed is very comfortable and cozy. We felt right at home! Highly recommended! Elizabeth is a great host.
Exactly what we needed!!
Stayed for a few days but wish it could have been longer. Place was clean, welcoming, bright and comfortable! Great selection of coffee, and the muffins flowers were an sweet way to make us feel at home. Comfy furniture and bed😊�
Perfectly appointed, nothing you might need overlooked
The sunny brightness and yellow pillows caught my eye when I was looking for a place close to Saratoga Racetrack. We wanted to spend a few nights but didn’t want to book a hotel.
The place was clean and inviting. Everything needed to enjoy time together, a great meal and an excellent night’s sleep were provided. And then there were the muffins and fresh flowers...icing on the already delectable cake!
Our only problem? Having to leave after a mere two days.
Great experience in a spacious, clean, well equipped space!
Elizabeth has done a great job creating a comfortable, welcoming space. It’s all about the details... from the fresh flowers, to the wide selection of K-cups (coffee AND tea), super-comfortable bed, and excellent guide to the area. The apartment is very spacious, clean, and nicely decorated. We are hosts ourselves and always have high expectations, but Elizabeth met and even exceeded them. We will stay here again when back in the area.
My husband and I stayed at the Malta Hamlet Hideaway for a weekend recently during a visit to see family who live nearby. While we did not spend a ton of time at the hideaway, we really enjoyed having our own place to come back to at the end of the day. The owners have done a wonderful job of making life easy on anyone that stays here! Everything is clearly labeled, and the place is very clean. The bed was so comfy, which is a BIG deal to me, I usually don't sleep the first night that I sleep away from home. We were happy to have the Keurig and K cups provided for us, as well as delicious blueberry muffins. I loved that the hideaway was located back away from the road, we are quiet people so we appreciated the quiet. We really enjoyed our short time staying at the hideaway, and we would recommend staying here to any of our friends and family, and we will definitely consider staying here again when we come back to the area. Thank you for all of your wonderful hospitality!!!
