Overview

About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 10

This private home sits on a bluff with adjacent views of the Hudson River. It’s located in the town of Saratoga in the village of Schuylerville 11 miles from the Saratoga race track. With about 600 feet on the river, it offers a private beach, boating, swimming, hiking, biking, skiing, and solace. Privacy and beauty is offered with west side of the house on the Champlain canal, the north side is a public park with a tow path that goes for miles along the river, the south side is the Hudson river with 14 miles between locks 4 and 5. The south patio door leads to a large deck which sits about 50 feet above the river. The north patio door leads to a screened-in porch, a slate patio, and a garden with a northern view of the river. The inside is newly renovated and provides views of the Hudson from all rooms. It contains HD TV, DVD and surround sound, High speed Internet, new central air system, gas fire place, and for your safety a full security and fire system.

Saratoga Area: Saratoga has so much to offer and you should plan at least one day and evening there.

Excellent entertainment in that during the Spring, Summer, and Fall most bars have live entertainment. You can walk down main street and hear Rock, Country, Pop,and Jazz. Favorites are listed in the looseleaf found at the house.

Great Restaurants. In addition to the good restaurants that you can walk to from the house. Saratoga has so many to choose from. You will not be disappointed. Again we recommend our favorites.

Casio and of course the Race Track. - Great fun. If you have never been to the Saratoga track, you will enjoy the picnic atmosphere and the chance to see some of the finest horses in our country.

Skiing, Golf, and Fishing: Plenty of opportunity for skiing - 20 minutes to Willard Mountain or West Mountain family ski areas. 70 minutes from Gore.

Golf - 3 local golf courses. All offering 18 holes and with in 20 minutes of house. The closest is Windy Hills, a public,18 hole, golf course is 5 minutes from property.

Good fishing in area around the house both in the Champlain Canal and in the Hudson River. See boating.

Boating + Fishing: A recommended trip is a boat ride on the Champlain Canal Tour boats. Many different cruises. It is ran by Captain Bob and Marie Foster who live near by. Just walk up the Tow Path to Lock 5. In the picnic area to the left of the dock you will find Captain Bob's stern wheel riverboat. Many cruises available including the Sunday morning breakfast cruise. We are in a pretty section of the Hudson with a lot of natural beauty.

The house has a row boat, canoe, and 3 kayaks for your personal use at your own risk.

The town public launch is about 1000 yards down the tow path. If you trailer a boat,you can easily launch it at the public dock and then anchor in front of the house. Good Bass fishing in front of the house in the Canal or on the rear of the house in the River.

A Great Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

This home’s owner & host are incredibly easy to work with: welcoming, accommodating and friendly. The home itself is simply terrific, with beautiful décor and every comfort provided for. It is also set up very well for entertaining. You can tell a lot of care and thought went into creating a home away from home like this. The setting on the Hudson River is idyllic and a real treat! You can bet that the canoe and kayak were in frequent use. We had a wonderful time staying here. In addition to all this, many attractions are just a short drive away. Hudson Riverhouse ranks as one of our very best vacation rental experiences. Definitely a “Let’s do this again!”

We had a fabulous time. The house located right on the Hudson is beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

Truly amazing place to stay. We loved the tow path and waterfalls, all the trails. So nice to wake up and see the river. The house was spotless and everything was in the house to make the stay so easy. I would love to come back. Tony was there when we arrived. He was so nice and friendly felt like we knew him for years and Michael too super nice quick to respond to a call or email. What a beautiful home to relax and enjoy. I would and did recommend this to everyone of our friends and family. If you get a chance to stay there you will definitely want to go back. Janetta Walsh

We had a fantastic weekend at Michael and Tony's beautiful home on the Hudson River. The views were exceptional, the house itself is lovely and cozy, and every amenity is provided, from a washer/dryer to kayaks and mountain bikes. We will definitely return again!

Owner's Response: It's great to get these reviews and find that people have truly enjoyed being there. We will try to keep it up. We thank Maria for taking the time to do a review. It is a current intention to sell the River House in the Fall of 2017. Tony and I are beyond our peak. If you are thinking of reserving time in 2017, please do so soon.

Although the property offers excellent privacy a tow path leads into the town of Schuylerville where excellent restaurants can be found. It is 11 miles from the Saratoga race track; 20 minutes from the ski resorts of Willard Mountain or West Mountain, 40 minutes from the resort village of Lake George, and 70 minutes to Gore Ski resort.

In addition, the Tow path running in front of the house, leads to miles of bike trails along the Hudson River.
