Beautiful home for extended family get-together!

  • 5 of 5

My booking, communication, and stay at Nick's home was perfect from start to finish! We booked the home for 2 sets of grandparents, in-laws, and siblings to visit for a nearby graduation and it accommodated everyone beautifully. The large dining room table was a bonus, as it let all of us gather together each evening for a long dinner and drinks. The grill, with plenty of propane, was also wonderful for the springtime. As others have mentioned, the stairs to the basement are a bit steep, but the 2nd entrance to the basement from outside, with only a few stairs was perfect for the grandparents. Nick's communication with me was prompt, informative, and accurate, and I certainly would recommend this Saratoga home to any family or friends in the future!

Thanksgiving in Saratoga Springs

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family had a great stay in this roomy house. Everyone found a comfortable place to sleep and the two kitchens made the preparation of the holiday feast much easier! There were plenty of utensils,pots, pans, and plates to serve all of us. Several times we walked to main drag to shop and people watch. The little supermarket just around the corner was very convenient. The runners found nice loops for running and we had a good time exploring the State Park and gathering some spring water right from the source.

Since it was a holiday weekend the construction across the street wasn't an issue, but as the building progresses it may impact the tranquility. Should look nice when it is done!

Some of the light fixture/fan controls were a little finicky but we got by. We informed the host that the dishwasher was acting up, hopefully that has been repaired.

Enjoy!

Great House; Great Service

  • 5 of 5

What a gem!

We stay in Saratoga Springs annually for a folk dance conference and festival. What began with young friends sharing hotel rooms has changed considerably, now that we're older parents with young kids.

This vacation rental met our needs to a tee. The large kitchen, living room, and dining room comfortably accommodated our five families. Each family had a comfortable bedroom of their own. The location made downtown and the City Center building an easy walk, even with kids, even in the winter. As a matter of fact, we didn't drive at all, after we arrived.

The house (and particularly the kitchen!) was stocked to meet our various needs. The market--less than two blocks away--was super convenient. Even the division of rooms (three upstairs, two in the renovated basement) allowed for convenient noise partitioning--our baby didn't wake anyone else up.

Best of all, though, was the the easy, responsive, and completely accommodating nature of the property owners. Nick was fabulous. He met our every need and exceeded our expectations.

The one caveat to be aware of with this property is the staircases--they are steep and winding. The house is ill suited to older persons with mobility issues, and toddlers require extra attention and/or baby gates. We found the staircase issue manageable, but noteworthy.

Overall we were very pleased with our stay. The per family cost was less than hotel rooms; the accommodations offered us unparalleled flexibility and convenience; and the owners were great. We're already planning to come back, next year.
