About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Full Bath, Sleeps 8

Swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi, steam shower, tipi, fire ring!

Your own private retreat in the Spa City!

Perfectly located, just minutes from Downtown Saratoga, Saratoga Raceway, Yaddo Gardens and Saratoga Lake. Walking distance to Saratoga National Golf Course.

Hidden Jewel, now ready to be discovered!

This exquisite home has a history of many happy times, family gatherings and personal transformations. The energies of love and caring which emanate here await you, your family and friends.

Inspired by her world travels, the owner has artistically designed with collectibles from around the globe. The experience of being here is one of

homelike comfort, casual elegance, richness, adventurous mystery and attention to detail-focusing beauty(the ‘Oh’ and ‘Ah’ of it.). Ancient Tibetan wedding chests, Malaysian Puppet Dolls, Central and South American Masks and Ceramics, Hard Wood Floors, Oriental Carpets…

Conveniently close to all that the beautiful Spa City has to offer, yet very far

away…in so many ways….

Open the back door and step into an enchanted garden, a peaceful

dimension where time slows and deep relaxation begins.

Take a stroll, contemplate the beauty of the perennial gardens or hand feed our fish in the koi pond. Meditate listening to the trickling of the water fountain or sit on one of the benches and become one with the nature. Bird baths and feeders draw our aviary companions of all kinds. Let the chimes and Thai Monastery bells be the music in your ears.

Whether you want to feel the adventure of spending the night outside, share the storytelling, drum or perform a traditional fire ceremony an original Native American teepee will welcome you.

Summer in Saratoga would not be such without the outdoor dining.

The wrap-around multilevel deck provides ample space for fun and entertaining or you may want to choose the screened porch which provides you with warm evening breezes absent of any arthropods.

- Large gas grill

- Round table and Chairs

- Chase lounges by the pool.

The Pool!

Your own private resort! What FUN!

Oh, but what about those crisp mornings on the Front Porch Café with the strong Espresso, and clear mind for picking the day’s winners?!


Truly a nice library. Classics, guides, nature and more. We have an over-sized soft leather recliner for you to sink into while exploring.

- Wireless Access

- Long Distance (in the US) Phone

Living Room

Here is where the anthropologist, the artist, the conversationalist and the musician meet.

A really soft Leather Couch and Recliner, Entertainment Center with Cable TV, VCR, DVD, Stereo System, Extensive Music Library, Piano,

Hand Made Belizean Drum (Yep, it traveled on the plane as well), a Marble Fireplace create a special ambiance to touch on all the senses. A perfect space for sharing those precious moments that memories are made of. Whether it is watching a favorite movie, playing Monopoly, listening to the opera or making your own music the journey is yours.

About Renata Grec

Nature, Adventure, Tranquility, Beauty and Comfort. Inspired by my own travels and world explorations, with a desire to share some of my favorite and special places with others, I created It is with pleasure that I open the door to our Vacation Homes so you too can create your own unforgettable memories. Being an avid traveler myself, I know what I appreciate when I stay at different destinations. My goal is to use that experience in creating and providing the best atmosphere for our guests.

I strive to create in each of our retreats a unique experience, reflecting the ambiance of the area, the cultural character and natural environment. My joy springs from feeling the soul of each area and property and infusing that spirit artfully throughout the home, the landscaping and amenities provided. A confluence of nature's beauty with interior design is communicated through color harmony, original art, comfort and the intimate warmth of a loved home. Whichever secret getaway that you may choose be assured that you will find a home where you can fully relax, be comfortable and bask in the sensual pleasures of the unique esthetic aspects of both the interior décor and the charming gardens, while drawing strength and energy from the breathtaking beauty of the surrounding habitat.

Renata Grec purchased this house in 1985

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a delight to spend the end of summer in this lovely home! (And "home" is surely what it is, as "house" will simply never do!)

Lounging by the pool (and on two occasions, it was actually warm enough to swim!), with the grill working overtime, was bliss for a couple of city dwellers. The dogs had a ball (literally and figuratively), and think they live here now.

Thank you for sharing your warm, artful space with these weary travelers. We leave renewed and refreshed!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

I got to spend two nights at this beautifully maintained place during the Saratoga chowder festival weekend. Renata has made the process very easy and straightforward. She is very responsible and accommodating. I can't even begin to describe how satisfying my weekend away from the hectic city was. This place has steam room, Sauna, and jaccuzi. The overall ambiance of this place will automatically make you feel at home and help you to relax. I would definitely recommend this place if you're visiting Saratoga! Great location, great accommodations, great atmosphere!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family needed some time away and found this gem in Saratoga Springs. We literally felt like we were staying at a museum. The culture, artifacts, history and warmth surround you when staying at the Treasure Chest. Thank you Renata for your hospitality, flexibility and generosity - your home was truly a pleasure to stay in.

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Renata, for letting our family enjoy The Treasure Chest! Our family of six adults stayed from June 12th through June 20th. It was so nice to return to a "home" rather than a hotel room after a day of fun.

Everything was exactly as described. We truly enjoyed the pool (though a bit chilly as it was early in the summer and a cold spring) patio and gardens. To our surprise there was even a baby bunny that came out early in the mornings!

The Treasure Chest is located in a very nice residential area close in proximity to everything you might want or need. Restaurants, stores, casino (racino) were minutes away. Lake George was a short half hour ride. Going to the west we visited Howe Caverns and the Adirondack Animal Park. The "children" enjoyed Six Flags one day, which was less than a half hour away.

The back yard is extremely private - to the point we are considering fencing in our much more rural yard next year. Much enjoyed!

The process of renting from Renata was very easy. I would highly recommend The Treasure Chest to anyone wanting a home away from home.

Owner's Response: It was truly a pleasure to have your family as our guests Gail! Thank you for your kind words and a very generous gift of "pool toys" that all our guests are enjoying now! Wishing you all the Best! Renata

Amazing girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This home is truly something special. The character and charm make you fee like you've stepped right into a place you grew up visiting. We spent a girls weekend in Saratoga and could not have picked a better place to stay. The amenities and location truly speak for themselves. This is a must stay for those going to the area.

The owner sends amazing reccomendations for places to go- we loved every suggestion. I can't wait to stay at the Treasure Chest again and to visit some of their other properties. Thank you!

Such a relaxing and tranquil home to make a perfect Valentine Day weekend

  • 5 of 5

Your home is such a beautiful place to stay, we especially loved all of the interesting artifacts, antiques, and your other beautiful decorations displayed from all of your travels. The home is filled with art of all sorts, and we spent quite some time looking at the different arrangements you have in each of the rooms. It's so close to shopping, supermarkets, and the really wonderful downtown Saratoga, we were pretty surprised when we went out exploring by how close we were to everything. The street is nice, private, and quiet as well.

The steam shower, Jacuzzi, and sauna were wonderful! It was more like renting our own private spa, the decor in the house is really quite enchanting. The living room was comfortable for relaxing on the couch to watch a movie, and the kitchen was a pleasure to cook in. The bed in the master was really comfortable, and there is tons of closet space if you needed it. I really liked the hand painted mater bath sinks. I'd love to experience it in the summer time.

The owner was very responsive, a pleasure to talk to, and also very helpful and accommodating, she was away during our stay, so I also had the opportunity to deal with her assistant manager, who was also very quick to respond and extremely pleasant to deal with as well.

We would love to come again for a longer stay in the warmer months to really be able to experience more of Saratoga, or at least, in more forgiving weather. We do hope to come again soon, your home is such a wonderful place to stay, thank you so much!
