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!

Perfect location for wedding!

The house was a perfect location for us to host our wedding of ~80 people. The combined indoor and outdoor space meant that there was plenty of seating, lots of mingling space, and a great diversity of social space. The bar that the Skevingtons preserved from when the propoerty was a restaurant works really well in the space and once the sinks are connected, it'll be even more enjoyable to use.

The house has all the amenities you need--including a well-stocked kitchen and fully equipped bathrooms, plenty of towels, kids games, etc. The beds are incredibly comfortable. The layout of the house is really fantastic for hosting a wedding party as the master bedroom is off on its own with its own bathroom, deck and fantastic views of the lake; we used the master suite as a place for the bridal party to get ready and as a point of departure for the wedding party to walk out along the deck and onto the grass for the ceremony.

The lakefront access was very enjoyable to use. The grassy area with the Adirondack chairs on the lakefront was our favorite place to have an evening drink as we watched the fish jump out of the lake to grab insects. We bought floating loungers and my favorite part was floating in the lake with a cool drink. I just wish we'd had longer there to enjoy the other amenities: tennis, kayaking, volleyball, etc.

The Skevingtons did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. They were always available by phone or by text for any query or concern we had. They trimmed back hedges that we asked them to, made sure the whole property was freshly mowed, and made sure a colony of bees was removed from the property before the wedding so that kids were not in danger of getting stung. They even lent us their own grill to use which was very kind.

We received many compliments on the location from our guests who thought it was the perfect location to get married. Not only is the house fantastic, but Saratoga Springs has so much to offer adults and kids of varied interests. We have fantastic memories of the week we spent there and would rent the house again in a heartbeat if we had to do it all over.

What a wonderful place to gather with friends! Mary and Craig did a remarkable job trasnforming a restaurant into a place to relax and enjoy fgood riends. There were 11 of us from 5 different states - making it a great central location and easy to get from car or those who had to fly. There were enough beds for everyone! We enjoyed being around the kitchen island while some were cooking and the rest of us sipping wine. The large dining table was perfect for our breakfasts and dinners - so everyone could be together. We took walks in the nearby neighborhood: took advantage of the tennis courts as it was a nice fall weekend while some did shopping in Downtown Saratoga. We surprised a former classmate - John Baker, owner of Gaffneys - for happy hour on Friday. It is truly a place that was perfect for what we were looking for ... in other words, we would not worry about laughing too loud for neighbors or hotel guests! at night, we spent time gathering in the sitting area and catching up with one another. It would be a great place to host a shower - baby or bridal - as the layout is very open with plenty of room! We plan to return in 2011!
