Saratoga County House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedroom, 2 bath private home sleeps 14 with tennis court and swimming pool.

Bannon's Mountain is 100 acres of incredible privacy located at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains between the cities of Saratoga Springs and Corinth, NY. Just 15 minutes south of Bannon’s Mountain you can find the famous Saratoga Race Track, the National Museum of Racing, The Saratoga Center for the Performing Arts, and numerous golf courses. To the north, only 20 minutes away is the famed Lake George, a beautiful 36-mile crystal clear lake in the Adirondack Mountains.

On our 100 wooded acres, you have your own tennis court and in-ground pool. You also have your very own one-acre lake just a short hike from the house.

When you leave Bannon's Mountain, you are only a short ride to the world-famous Saratoga Race Track and numerous first-class golf courses. In addition, there are dozens of other activities only minutes away from Bannon’s Mountain: horseback riding at the many stables, rafting and tubing adventures on the Hudson River and Great Sacandaga, flying from tree to tree on zip-lines at Adirondack Extreme, a visit to the Factory Outlet Malls in Glens Falls, fine dining in downtown Saratoga, entertainment at the Lake George Dinner Theater, majestic balloon flights and parasailing on Lake George, and visits to the historic Fort William Henry Museum. And within only a couple of hours are the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown and the U.S. Olympic Facilities in Lake Placid.

About Joe Bannon

My family has its roots in Glens Falls, NY, just a quick drive from Bannon's Mountain. My father purchased the property as a place to bring the family together for summer fun. Over the past 45 years, Bannon's Mountain has hosted dozens of family reunions, BBQs, tennis matches, swimming races, hiking adventures, trips to the Saratoga Race Track, white water rafting fun, golf outings, sightseeing around famed Lake George and pretty much any activity you can imagine. It has become a cherished part of our family's history, and we're excited to share it with you and your family.

Joe Bannon purchased this house in 1968

Why Joe Bannon chose New York

Our property is unique because of its 100 acres of privacy and tranquil environment. Sitting atop Bannon's Mountain in your private 5-bedroom home you truly feel removed from the frenzy of your daily routine. At the same time, you are only minutes away from some of the Adirondack's greatest attractions and to all the excitement you can find. The famed Saratoga Race Track and Saratoga Performing Acts Center are only a dozen miles down the road from Bannon's Mountain. Lake George, one of the greatest vacation spots in New York, is only a 20-minute drive from Bannon's Mountain. Everywhere you look is an opportunity to play golf, raft on a river, boat on a lake, eat at a great family restaurant, shop main street in Saratoga or the outlet stores of Lake George...or just spend the day relaxing at your private, 100 acre estate!!

Favorite Place

  • 5 of 5

I have spent two vacations on Bannon Mountain and thrilled to be returning again this September. This has become my favorite spot to spend time with family and friends. We love playing tennis during the day, hiking, swimming and all the other activities on the property. In addition, the area has so much to offer as other reviewers have mentioned.

I could write a lot more but I think my return trips are evidence enough how special Bannon's Mountain has become to my family.

Just a side note, there is a nice bell by the tennis court which helps to get those late sleepers moving in the mornings! Thank you Mr. Bannon for sharing your place with us and we love the history that goes with your lodge.

Best Weekend Ever

  • 5 of 5

A group of roughly 15 of us stayed at Bannons Mountain for a weekend during Saratoga's track season. We spent one day in town and the rest enjoying Bannon's Mountain. Tennis tournaments, trips to the lake, bonfires, large group meals. We did not want to leave.

Joe was the most gracious host, and made everything so easy. Thanks Joe! We'll be back.

We'll Be BAAACK!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place for a family vacation. It offers appeal for a variety of ages and interests. The home is well designed and welcoming. Five very nice private bedrooms and two large areas for the family to gather and socialize.

Amenities? Oh my...the kids loved the swimming pool, the tennis court, the pond, hiking to the pond....and the bunk house. The view from the front veranda is absolutely stunning. It is a wonderful spot to relax and/or have your cook out.

Bannon's Mountain is also close to Corinth, Saratoga Springs, Lake George and several wonderful restaurants. Some of our group went into Sarasota Springs to see the New York City Ballet perform. Many had a nice time driving along the Hudson River and also around Lake Sacandago. We enjoyed visiting the small towns in the area and the going to the variety of shops. some of the adults enjoyed antiquing.

We highly recommend a stay at Bannon's Mountain.

Ideal Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Bannon's Mountain was the ideal place for our family reunion. Our mornings started with coffee in comfortable chairs on the expansive deck overlooking the Adirondacks, peacefulness and beauty all around. Bannon's Mountain offered us an abundance of activities for all ages such that we changed our plans to go to Lake George, and instead made the most of being at Bannon's Mountain, walking Tucker Trail to reach Cricket Lake, throwing frisbees, swimming and playing tennis. We had endless fun playing tennis on the most pristine, clean and professional tennis court, complete with rackets and balls. Each evening after dinner we had some serious ping pong tournaments inside the house. There was plenty of room around the table for crowds to gather and cheer. Our nightly bonfires were the most memorable of all. Joe Bannon provided a large supply of cut wood so we could keep the fire burning late into the night. All 14 of us sat around the bonfire (there are two bonfire sites to choose from) while we roasted marshmallows and family members played their instruments - guitar, trumpet and harmonica.

Inside the Bannon's home you feel as though you are being warmly hosted by dear friends who graciously want to share their pride and joy with you. There are private bedrooms and spacious common areas for gathering. We appreciated that there were two dining tables and plenty of silverware and plates for everyone. The kitchen had ample counter space so we could serve meals buffet style. Having two refrigerators was so helpful and minimized our trips to the grocery store.

Joe Bannon was immensely kind and delightfully enthusiastic through the whole process of our renting Bannon's Mountain. He answered all our questions and offered sound advice about preparing for our stay. We felt very welcomed and comfortable at Bannon's Mountain. It is our hope to return.

Serenity, Amenities, Close to all kinds of fun

  • 5 of 5

This place is unbelievable for a family vacation or a longer stay if desired. The lodge is rustic, warm and filled with interesting memorabilia and history. Five bedrooms, large couches and a bunk house for additional sleeping. Furnishings are very nice and comfortable, new large screen TVs with Direct TV. Like new tennis court, nice pool, and a large new deck looking out over the foothills and mountains toward Vermont. Close to Lake George, Saratoga Springs Race Track, several golf courses within 5 miles, whitewater rafting and more. Great restaurants close. We are definitely going to return in 2015. We loved it!

Fabulous Adirondack Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Bannon's Mountain can only be described as perfect. The location was ideal for our family and friends, close to both Saratoga Springs and Lake George. The lodge is delightfully rustic, but with many of the comforts of home. Plenty of room for everyone. We enjoyed relaxing by the pool, playing tennis and walking around the grounds. The scenery from atop the mountain is spectacular. This property is also close to many other activities and sites. Whitewater rafting was nearby, as well as horseback riding. For any American history buffs, Fort Ticonderoga is a very manageable drive, as is the Saratoga National Historical Park. We ate most of our meals on the property, but there are a number of good restaurant options within a close proximity. I would highly recommend this rental property. The owner was very easy to deal with, and responded quickly to my requests.
