Overview

Saratoga Springs House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedroom, 4 Full Bath, Sleeps 10

Our home overlooks Putnam Brook, which cuts a deep gorge in a wooded plateau through our property before continuing to Saratoga State Park. The property is a 10-acre oasis of wilderness turned into a private park, including a secluded picnic area on the river bank with a fire pit and a cantilevered deck overlooking the valley. You will share the property with birds, deer, wild turkeys, and turtles, which are often seen along the picturesque nature trail.

The house, owned by a European interior designer and her writer husband, combines beauty with comfort. It's filled with original artwork and a mixture of antique and modern furniture, and offers views of nature from its huge windows. It's warmed by a fireplace and cooled by central air system.

Enjoy your morning coffee in the fresh air on the wraparound deck and patio. Fantastic views of the lawn and woods can also be enjoyed from the two balconies attached to the bedrooms on the second floor.

The house has spacious living room, dining room, and gourmet kitchen fit for entertainment. If you'd rather not entertain, you can relax in the library. It's separated from the hallway by a glass pocket door and filled with books and has a glass outer façade looking out at the brook, providing the perfect spot for meditation.

The home's focal point is the living room. It is a place of comfort and casual elegance, with hardwood flooring, Persian rugs, European antique furniture and comfortable sofas, accented with original paintings of race horses and ballerinas. The cathedral ceiling adds to the grandeur.

The dining room is separated from the living room by two columns and opens to the southern deck through a sliding glass door. The large table is perfect for an elegant dinner party.

Independent Apartment: There is a wholly independent modern apartment at the underground level (with 1 bedroom, kitchen and a full bath).

This is the perfect house in perfect surroundings! To celebrate your find, toast chilled Champagne in the outside hot tub!

Lovely, Gracious, welcoming home and owner!

  • 5 of 5
Our family gathered from domestic and international origins at Saratoga Springs for a wedding at the end of September, with Albany Airport a quick drive up the NY thruway to this lovely home. Grayzna was a pleasure to deal with, quick to respond to questions and emails, and followed up with us quickly upon our return home. The house reflected her artistic design with its European Flair, which was just beautiful. The property, very private, was well appointed with places to soak up the sun, gather for conversation, and offered easy convenience to town and the wedding venue. The house provided all the needed amenities for our group of travelers, along with comfortable and private rooms, modern bathrooms and kitchen, and many personal touches. We enjoyed a carefree visit thanks to the owners' ability to foresee our every possible need. Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful home, Grazyna. We hope to have an opportunity to come again, and highly recommend your lovely home and property!

Family celebrating a mother's 90th Birthday!

Family celebrating a mother's 90th Birthday!
  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful home to have rented to celebrate a very special occasion with my family. We met up from Ma., New Orleans, NYC,and Ithaca, NY. The home was perfect, very comfortable, beautiful artwork, enough bedrooms for us all, lovely jacuzzi's, a fantastic 10 acres of land around the house and quiet. We even hired an acapella group from Skidmore College to sing for our 90 yr. "young" mothers Birthday party! The acoustics in the living room made the " concert" sound perfect. Those young men were terrific, and sang about 6 songs for us all. We had everything we needed at the house and it was a pleasure. Of course being 7 minutes from Saratoga Springs was a total delight too. Easy to drive into. The owners were nice people and showed us the house to make sure we knew what the home had. It was a delightful stay.

Annual Get Together

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I have an annual get together in October, choosing a new location each year. This house was by far the best compared to the five previous locations we have stayed at. The house is grand, but cozy at the same time, and fit 10 ladies comfortably. Grazyna was extremely gracious. The home was well stocked with high quality kitchen tools, spices and condiments. Having rented houses for the past 20 years, I am accustomed to bringing a lot of spices, olive oil, toilet paper, paper towels, dishwashing liquid, sponges, etc. We were surprised to see how well-equipped the house was and how refreshing to hear her say that we were welcome to use anything we needed. A class act! The house was spotless and as other reviewers have said, it is even more beautiful in person than the pictures depict. I would definitely return to this home.

Wonderful home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family came together from all corners, and we gathered under this roof for a wedding celebration in Saratoga Springs....believe me no one complained about my choice in accommodations!! This house was so tastefully decorated (mix of Ikea modern,old world antiques, the art you see in the pics is throughout the house and African wood sculptures. All beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was perfect for morning and evening gatherings....also no complaints from our chefs (amply supplied). The house is nestled in the trees with a view of the lawns that is serene. Not far from all things happening in Saratoga, but it has a "out in the woods" atmosphere. A great fire pit next to the water, you climb down a set of stairs at the back of the lawn which obscures the house from view (just the water, fire, and you!) A driveway that fits multiple vehicles and a two car garage. This pick was the first rental (of many) that actually exceeded the description. Our host Grazyna was so gracious! Showed the house and let us know they were both available should we need anything to make us more comfortable and then left us to it. A real gem of a place to stay.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect house to spend a week gathering family while celebrating our daughter's wedding in Saratoga. Every aspect of the house and property was inviting and relaxing. There are many lovely spots to sit and visit. Hands down, our favorite gathering place was at the kitchen table with the comfy curved banquette along the windows. The house had everything we needed and more. We did not need to go out to eat and we did not want to. The bedrooms are located on the upper and basement levels which allowed guests to have private, quiet and peaceful areas for retreat. The owners are lovely people and we are full of gratitude for them sharing their wonderful home with us.

August Place To Be

  • 5 of 5
We don't want to be too repeticious, but we echo other recent reviews. This beautiful home was as much and more than we expected. We were able to enjoy all aspects of this home and property from the hot tub to the patios and to just exploring the large property.
We were here during the Saratoga Race meet and really enjoyed going to the races and then returning for wine and munchies on the patio.
We certainly hope to return.
