About Joan

I'm a retired school teacher and life long resident of Saratoga. I enjoy travel, time with my grand kids and welcoming visitors to Saratoga!

Joan purchased this house in 2014

Why Joan chose Capital, Saratoga

Fantastic location - minutes to the track and downtown. It's everything you need to be comfortable in a home away from home.

What makes this house unique

The indoor-outdoor space is wonderful. You can spread out and relax inside, or the sun room, or outside on the patio.

Charming well maintained home

  • 5 of 5

Country charm in a well maintained modern updated home. Main floor has 3 spacious, comfortable bedrooms, updated bath with open living room dining combo and modern updated kitchen. The lower level gave us another living space with large bedroom, den and full bath. Add to this a lovely sunroom and patio and backyard space. Perfect is the word to describe. Home is located close to the racetrack and shopping is minutes away.

Our rental experience was nothing short of perfect in every way, we had family and friends come and go throughout our stay -with plenty of room and comfort for all.

We look forward to 2017 racing season and hopefully another stay.

Our second time!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we rented Joan's beautiful home in Saratoga to attend a weekend concert series at SPAC. Since our last stay, she has completely finished the basement, adding a bedroom, second bathroom and more living space. It looks amazing! Our group had a wonderful time over the 4th of July holiday. We grilled in the backyard and played bocce, and was just a quick drive away from the concerts at night. Thanks again Joan for another lovely stay! Hope to see you again next summer! :)

Cozy and Comfortable 4 Month Home

  • 5 of 5

My three friends and I are Skidmore students and we rented 4 Liz for the fall semester of our junior year. We are all going abroad, but would have lived at 4 Liz in the Spring of 2016.

We were immediately impressed with how well-kept the house was right when we moved in this past September. Everything was spotless and up-to-date and Joan left us enough kitchen supplies to last the whole semester. Joan was always readily available if we needed anything, which was very infrequent because of how well maintained the house was right from the start. The house was cozy and the four of us felt right at home. Our parents were beyond impressed with the house as well.

The location was 7 minutes from Skidmore and less than 5 minutes from downtown. It was a family neighborhood and always quiet so it was always a nice break from campus.

We will always consider 4 Liz our first home and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a wonderful experience in Saratoga Springs.

Our Fabulous Second Annual Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were thrilled once again to celebrate Christmas in Saratoga and stay at this lovely home. Joan, the property manager, outdid herself in welcoming us to this spotlessly cleaned house. There were a few holiday decorations that made it feel homey and fun. The home's close proximity to lovely downtown Saratoga makes it perfect for walking on Broadway and enjoying the experience of all the different restaurants and shops that are available. I have just one comment to make: "We'll be back!"

Saratoga Springs is a vibrant community, rich in character, culture and fun activities. Known for 'horses, health and history' the city welcomes tourists from around the world each summer for horse racing, concerts, NYC ballet, natural water springs scattered around the city, polo and the beautiful natural environment - including the spectacular Spa State Park. Downtown Saratoga, located just 3 minutes from the house, is lively with restaurants ranging from global cuisine to great pasta, pizza, and barbecue. Lot's of outdoor places to eat, drink and be merry - including great wine tasting. There are art galleries, yoga studios, tons of interesting shops, a brand new local movie theater and even an indie movie offering in the old public library on Broadway. The beautiful Congress Park with ducks and the historic Canfield Cansino Museum are both wonderful walking treats. Take a stroll through the Farmers Market, and up North Broadway and view the preserved Victorian mansions, or sit on a bench and enjoy local ice cream. For athletes, there's plenty of biking, hiking, golf and tennis and nearby swimming and boating. There's just the right balance between modern convenience and small town charm. For these reasons Saratoga has loyal visitors who return every year.
