Wonderful home in Saratoga!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third annual trip to Saratoga for Travers Weekend but our first time renting a home rather than staying at a hotel. Not only was it more cost efficient, but it was a much more pleasant experience overall! Timothy was very quick to respond right from my initial email and so nice, wanting to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay.

The house really is in the perfect location, on a small, cute, and quiet street, 10 minute walk from Broadway where all of the restaurants and bars are, and a 10-15 minute walk to the track.

The house was very comfortable and cozy and the outdoor area and pool were a wonderful treat! I would definitely recommend staying here!

What a week

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing week and an amazing house. It is advertised as the perfect location and it really is. We could walk to downtown to enjoy the nights without having to worry about driving home. We spent more time at the house than we did at the track. The pool yard is everything we needed to just relax. It is surprising how private the street is considering it is in the middle of the action.

The house was clean and well maintained. Pool and everything else was taken care of by owners. We just relaxed and enjoyed our week

Such a warm and inviting home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip staying in this beautiful home from 1899. The owners were so welcoming and had made their home feel like our own for our stay. We enjoyed grilling dinners outside in the backyard and swimming in the pool. We got in our car one time all week to take a nice 1/2 hour drive to Lake George for the day, but otherwise walked everywhere over the week. It was 5 minute walk to town and 5-10 minutes to the racetrack. I would love to stay in this home again and had a great time in Saratoga. I would definitely recommend this rental as well as the owners. They were great at quickly responding to any questions we had while trying to book the reservation, all the way through our stay. Could not have been happier.

Great House in a great town

  • 5 of 5

Saratoga is the August place to be for sure. We love the track and nightlife. My family has been coming here for ten years now and the town never disappoints. The restaurants are the best. We love Wheat fields but the house owners told us of Pennell's that is off the beaten path. It is our new favorite!

As for the house it is in the perfect spot to enjoy the entire Saratoga experience. We loved our mornings by the pool and cocktails on the front porch. The Mcwiggins are very nice and give you a beautiful home to enjoy. By far the cleanest home we have ever stayed in. Every little detail is taken care of. Our dog loved the fenced in yard. We had no problems at all. We hope to return again next year and make this a traditional place for our family to stay.

Location! Location! Location!

  • 4 of 5

This was a wonderful weekend spot. Our car never left the driveway. We walked to the track and downtown every night. The pool and private yard were tremendous. It was like having your own private area in the middle of a bustling tourist town. The only downside was that we couldn't pick any winning horses and the track was crowded.
