Wedding Week...first week in October 2014

  • 5 of 5
Moon's Lake House was the beautiful setting for our daughter's wedding reception in a tent on the side lawn. We used the deck for a cocktail hour. Our caterer made the kitchen her home base ensuring piping hot apps and food for the dinner. The setting and atmosphere was PERFECT for us and our families as we joined together in all the tasks of decorating and preparation for the wedding day. Our son-in-law's entire family was able to all stay in the house and enjoyed the comfort and amenities of such a lovely place! Mary went above and beyond to ensure that everything was tip top before their arrival, and was SO accommodating to our specific needs regarding the use of her space. I would highly recommend Moon's as a friendly, comfortable and beautiful gathering place where people can relax, enjoy the natural beauty of Saratoga, and feel at home. Thank you Mary and Craig for adding so much to the joy of a very special occasion for our family!

Waterfront property with lake access and close to

  • 5 of 5
A group of friends have stayed at Moons Lake each of the last two summers. We usually try to coincide our stay with horse racing, concerts or other Saratoga activities. The Moons Lake house has so much space to accomodate large groups and the interior restaurant portion provides plenty of cover in bad weather. This past summer we played volleyball all afternoon followed by some swimming in the lake. We took cabs to and from Saratoga Brewfest - the house is centrally located so cabs are a cheap option to get to Downtown Saratoga, the racetrack, the racino, the fairgrounds, SPAC, etc.
We golfed both days at Saratoga Spa State Park - great course for a good price.

Mary and Craig are absolutely wonderful hosts and make sure that the Grill (brand new last year) has plenty of propane, the WiFi is working, and they are right next door if you ever need anything.

We will stay again soon and recommend this house to anyone.

A Saratoga Gem!

  • 5 of 5
This property worked perfectly for us. The house has a gorgeous view of Saratoga Lake and is fully equipped in terms of amenities and kitchen needs. The bonus for us was that the property is also handicapped accessible. The owners went out of their way to make sure that we were comfortable and had everything that we needed. I would highly recommend this property to anyone interested in that kind of rental.

Beautiful Home - Incredible view!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed her for my son's HS graduation weekend! The home was beautiful inside, lots of open space and seating. The outdoor deck was perfect for the celebration. My young nieces and nephews enjoyed kayaking and fishing. The adults enjoyed our time together and the relaxing view. Thank you Mary and Craig!

This rental was all we needed for the perfect weekend of fun and relaxation!

The owner is super friendly, accommodating, responsive, and was respectful of our privacy during our stay. I was in charge of a large group of guys and everyone had something to do at all times of the day. The interior of the rental is huge and has everything we needed to be comfortable and keep having fun. Honestly, if it rained all weekend, we would've been content hanging out inside. Luckily, we had perfect weather to use the backyard, tennis courts, volleyball net, go swimming, kayaking, grill out, and just walking around their very beautiful property. It is so scenic! We were right up on a hill with a beautiful view of the lake. We had a hard time deciding whether or not to even go into town Saturday night because we were having such a great time at the rental!

The owner really helped make our stay as great as it was and I'm glad we got to rent from such great people. I highly recommend this rental to any large group. I am definitely going to consider renting again if I'm back in the area!
