The side exit leads you to the large driveway which can fit between 5 and 6 cars which is important during track season. There is also a basketball hoop attached to the garage.

Pool / Spa
Great for large groups! Loved every second!
Fabulous centrally-located space with great flow. We were in town for a family reunion/wedding and had comfortable beds for more than the group of ten we were. Ours became the gathering spot for additional family staying elsewhere in town with so much space for concurrent group games and activities. Well stocked kitchen with great access to two dining spaces, two living rooms and a hot tub accessible even in the middle of winter! Great sound system too. The owners were very accommodating and responsive to any and all needs. We loved every second of our stay.
Great house great location
Beautiful house. All the old world Saratoga charm with modern amenities. The location was perfect. A block from the track and great dining. Would go back every year.
Perfection start from finish. House is amazing
From the first call to finalizing departure details the entire experience was textbook perfect.
The owners were Amazing!!!
The house is amazing!!!
The location is amazing!!!
Had the best time and kept blowing out mind of all the little stuff the house was equipped with from pool, hot tub, layout of rooms and bathrooms, kitchen, couches everywhere and complete house sound system.
If you are coming to Saratoga this is the best house you can rent.
We stayed here with a large group for the long Labor Day weekend. This place is a gem. The home is totally renovated and updated with every desirable feature and high end furnishing. The decor is inviting, comfortable and relaxing. It is a short walk to the Saratoga race track and horse racing museum. Town and the Saratoga Spa and Golf is a short distance and makes for a great bike ride. Morning coffee while relaxing on the front porch was the best. We ate most meals on the fabulous patio after a dip in the pool but the
indoor dining and gathering areas are large and just as comfortable.
The manager is very responsive and easy to deal with, I highy recommend this property.
Luxe accommodations within steps of track and town
Besides the best location, this house is in mint condition. New kitchen and baths. AC works well. Everything was immaculate. The salt water pool is ultra private and relaxing. We didn't need the heater, as it was the perfect temperature. The sore back crew enjoyed the hot tub as well.
The house has everything you need including beach towels. It also has the best ice maker! The keyless, coded entry made in and out easy for all, and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Was perfect. Looking to rent again next summer! Owners very accommodating.
