About Scott Starr

Family of 5 including the dog! House is kid-friendly with LOTS of family amenities and a great open floorplan, with a quiet upstairs.

Scott Starr purchased this house in 2011

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a really great stay at Scott's place! He and his wife went above and beyond to answer any questions and to be available ANY time for anything at all. I spoke to Christina on the phone about a week before the trip, she wanted to make sure she had all the bedding set up correctly and to answer any questions I had. Scott texted me right around check-in time to make sure everything was okay. The house was PERFECT. We had a girls weekend in Saratoga, there were 8 of us and there was more than enough room. The downstairs was super spacious with an open kitchen, living room, and dining room. They had really funky artwork around the house and everything was really clean. They provided us with a full binder with tons of information about the house and the area. It was walking distance to town, and it was all of our first time to Saratoga so we were really fortunate to get in such a lucky spot without really knowing the area. I highly recommend this house to anybody, families or groups!

Travers Week Fun

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at the Starr property and we really enjoyed ourselves. It was great knowing we could walk to the center of Saratoga and the track in 15 minutes or so....leaving the car behind. The house met our needs and was very clean and comfortable and well appointed. Scott and his wife were gracious hosts and communicated with us in a timely manner throughout the entire booking and payment process. They also respected our privacy and did not interfere with us at all. Overall...great fun week !!

Relaxing on Lake Street

  • 5 of 5

This house continues to serve our group's needs very well. The long driveway provides plenty of parking space. The downstairs and kitchen areas provide ample room for all. The master bedroom's own shower facility is a big plus. This was our third year staying at this home, and, hopefully, we'll be back again next year.

Big open house! Great Owner!

  • 4 of 5

9 of us stayed in Scott's house over July 4th weekend. Two stayed on the main floor while everyone else fitted into the 3 bedrooms upstairs. I stayed in the master bedroom with my wife which was really nice with a big bathroom. The skylight was nice but kept the room hot during the day even with a fan. We didn't stay in the bedroom during the day so not a big deal. There was an issue with the grill and Scott brought over a brand new propane grill the next day which worked great. Everyone really enjoyed the big porch on the front and we spent many hours a day out there. The house was decorated nice with an old piano. The kitchen was big but needs some more cooking pots/pans.

We were in town to see 3 phish shows at Saratoga Springs Performing arts center. Scott easy to contact and even offered to pick us up from the concert for a fee (Basically an uber since there is none in Saratoga Springs). The concert is rather crazy when it is over so it was nice to have a ride. We went to Brown's Beach everyday to relax before the concert.

I would recommend this house to big groups in town for a concert or horse race.

Racetrack Getaway Revisited

  • 5 of 5

With its bright new interior the house was even more appealing than last year. The addition of a second bed in the one bedroom was also a plus. And the comfy porch remains a welcome respite after the walk back from the track. Hope to make it a threepeat next summer.

Easy Living

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for us. We traveled to the area for a wedding. The house became central station for all of our casual family. This is not a luxury property but a tremendous value. We would go back again in a heartbeat. The owner is very easy to work with.
