Family weekend getaway
House was great for a 2 night stay with our kids. House was clean and comfortable. I would recommend adding an a/c unit to the dining room for the very hot summer days, but overall we were very pleased!
Perfect house for enjoying downtown Saratoga
The house was wonderful and just as described in the listing. Very cute/clean with everything we needed! Great location, just a short walk to restaurants/shopping/downtown and a short drive to the state park and race track!
Felt like home!
We had such a wonderful time in Saratoga! A beautiful area and this house was perfectly located close to The thruway, less than 10 minute walk to shops, grocery, movie theater and parks! The house was even better than pictured, great for us and our 2 young kids (2 and 4). Very clean and had everything you could need for meals and lots of magazines and games for entertainment. Melanie was wonderful at checking in with us to make sure we had everything we needed and quickly responded to all messages. We were very comfortable and felt right at home!
Thank you for the wonderful review! We welcome you and your family back any time!
Thanks for everything! The house was extremely beautiful and clean. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect location. I will recommend this property to anyone that mentions visiting Saratoga Springs!
Fabulous place to stay!
We had a wonderful weekend in this lovely house. Comfortable, clean, well supplied with everything we could wish for and more! Thanks so much, we hope to come back sometime.
So glad you enjoyed your stay! We hope you will come and stay again next time you are in Saratoga!
Nice house....some issues though
The house has been nicely renovated, all furniture is new and comfortable, and the kitchen is well stocked. Another review said this property is on a busy street; it is actually the first house down a very quiet one way street, so while you can hear some traffic it is minimal. There is no access code or simple instructions in the online VRBO reservation confirmation for this property, so I had to email the owner to obtain that. Though most things in the house were self-explanatory, basic written instructions are always helpful when renting a property and there were none (online or at the property). The TV was challenging at first, and took a number of tries to get working (though unclear why, since it eventually worked). It was important to us to be able to do laundry as this was halfway through a longer trip, and the dryer was not functioning. While I realized it was unplugged & got it plugged in, I then didn't realize the gas was not on & therefore there was no heat. Though I texted the owner for dryer hints, I didn't get the gas explanation until the following a.m. After talking through with the owner how to turn on the gas, there then was a leak and a gas smell permeated the downstairs. While we appreciate that the owners generally responded right away during this problem, the dryer situation was not only inconvenient but the owner seemed unsurprised and pretty unconcerned that there was a gas leak. Had we not needed to use the dryer, we would have been giving this property a "5".
Thank you for the feedback. We regret that you had an issue with the dryer. Both my husband and I offered several times to come and resolve the problem, however, you stated that you “did not want us disrupting your day.” Once we were able to get into the house after check out, we were able to fix the problem quickly.
