A great family reunion retreat for all!
"This home and property offered an incredibly relaxing getaway for our family reunion for guests aged 6 to 80. The home has comfortable sleeping accommodations on three floors, offering everyone in a larger party a nice private place to retreat in the evening, or just for a nap or some quiet time during the day. Meal preparation was easy in the well appointed kitchen, and the dining table and deck made for a great place to enjoy meals together. The grounds are beautiful, and the pool was wonderful! It rained a fair amount during our stay, but we enjoyed swimming when we could, inter-generational wiffle-ball games, hunting for frogs, and picking raspberries from the bushes. And when the rain came down hard, we enjoyed the sound system and lots of games! This home and the property is simply wonderful- leaving little need to venture out. We'd definitely stay again, and recommend it highly."

"Living just 2 blocks from the ocean, it had been years since our last "real" vacation much less since we were in the greater Lake George area. Needless to say, it was well worth the wait, and the lake house was everything we were hoping it would be. Off the beaten track, but easy enough to find with everything you could need or want just a quick & scenic drive away. The house was quaint, clean & welcoming with an amazing view that just pulls you out of your seat and demands that you get outside! Kayaking was amazing with bald eagles & blue herons guiding the way, and the fish were biting every line. After dark, stargazing was hypnotizing with shooting stars abound... As much as we love a campfire, we couldn't bring ourselves to light up the sky!
Very quiet, amazingly private, and did I mention the view?!?
If you want to "unplug" and detox from the usual daily grind, leave your laptop and cell phones behind because this is the place to do it!
My only complaint?- That we didn't stay longer!
Thank you so much Joyce & Dennis!!!!"

"Bruce was an absolute pleasure to work with. I reached out to him a week prior to an impromptu weekend gateway, and he responded immediately. Upon arrival, we were pleasantly surprised at how tasteful decorated and well-organized the place is. The owners' attention to detail is apparent throughout the house, from neatly-labeled soap dispensers to perfectly stacked books. Our young children loved the toys and books, and the expansive yard with a swing set, hammock, and meticulously maintained flower beds. The owners live right beside this cottage, so we had the chance to bump into them here and there which made our mini-vacation extra intimate. While the younger children napped in the house, I sat in the backyard and watched my older one on the swingset. With the mountains in the background and hearing nothing but the breeze blowing through the leaves, I wondered how one could ever get tired of this view.
The only down side is that the house appears to have been converted from a farm house, so noise and light insulation is definitely lacking. One can easily hear conversations in the bedrooms upstairs and vice-versa. But Bruce's hospitality has more than made up for it. Thank you for making our family weekend in the Berkshires simply sublime!"

"Excellent house and accommodations at the Railroad House! I am an avid VRBO renter and consider myself to be very picky when looking for a rental. The Railroad House exceeded my expectations! The house was very comfortable and the owner thought of everything! The house was well stocked and very clean upon our arrival. The location is great - within walking distance to the cute main drag of Saratoga Springs. Highly recommend it!!"
