About the property

Victorian Living with modern touches in downtown Saratoga Springs

Breezy, Spacious & guaranteed Unique. Full of antiques, collectibles and framed art. This is your home if you want something a little different than your modern suburban home. And yet, just enough modern amenities included, such as central air in an old Victorian. Perfect for summertime cocktails on the porch and watching the world pass by. Park your car and leave it. This home is in the heart of downtown Saratoga Springs, just off historic Franklin Square. Walk to everything--restaurants, coffee shops, a movie theatre, and, of course, the bars--but arrive home quickly and to privacy so close to everything. A truly special 1890's air conditioned four story Victorian with porches, nooks, hallways, gardens & gated yard. Get lost inside the house. Take a bath in one of the claw foot, original tubes. There are showers, as well. Mosaic tile and lovely detailed touches everywhere. When we aren't in Saratoga enjoying our home, we also run a Lodge in North Creek, New York. So, we know how to take care of you. Look up Gore Mountain Lodge for more information.

About Mark Parobeck

When an artist marries a social worker, they eventually purchase and renovate a Lodge in the Adirondack Mountains. That explains a little bit about our life and living and why we feel we can offer you a great place to stay in Saratoga Springs

Mark Parobeck purchased this house in 1998

Why Mark Parobeck chose Capital Saratoga

We fell in love with this house the first time we saw it and have now owned it for more than 15 years. It was called the Woodchuck Lodge when we found it. It's now a home to our growing boys.

What makes this house unique

Walking distance to everything. Again: walking distance to everything. It's like living in the East Village of Manhattan, except you're in Saratoga Springs!

Location is everything

  • 5 of 5

Location! Location! Location! This house is nicely situated in the heart of Saratoga Spring. Easy walk to the Main Street (shopping, restaurants & bars) and nice walk to the Racetrack. Easy drive to Lake George.

Great home for a weekend at the track

  • 5 of 5

Great and interesting old home with a lot of character in a perfect downtown location. Easily fit my entire party, with plenty of beds and bathrooms/showers for a large group. You can easily walk to any of the restaurants around town, and while not extremely close to the track, it is certainly walkable if you want to. I'd highly recommend this house for any group looking to spend some time in Saratoga.

Perfect location, nice place

  • 4 of 5

The good:

This was a lovely home in a great location - very convenient to walk anywhere we needed to go. The house offered plenty of space for four adults. There are only two showers in the house, so we did have to share those- the bathroom in the suite on the second floor has only a tub. The owner was so friendly and responsive, and was very easy to work with.

The not-as-good:

Little to no hanging closet space for guests. House is in need of a thorough cleaning.

Great home for a fun filled vacation in Saratoga Springs

  • 5 of 5

This home is cozy and warm. The owner was easy to work with and responsive to our needs. Location is perfect as its walking distance to many great restaurants and shops. You can't beat Saratoga Springs, and this is the home rent for a large family and/or a group of friends.
