About David Nuzzi

I grew up on this property. Left for several years then bought it from my mother in 1995. I own my own business and this is my only rental. My wife and I live next door with our two boys.

David Nuzzi purchased this cottage in 1995

Why David Nuzzi chose New York

I own a business which requires travel and living out of suitcases for one or two weeks at a time. I started renting places for my work travel from VRBO. I found they were more comfortable than motels and typically less expensive. So we have modeled this cottage into a home from home. With some real experience and insight on what travelers might like, we hope you get a chance to enjoy our place.

What makes this cottage unique

Very private. Quiet families live on either side. It's so nice to have the parking right at the front door. Skip the hotel and enjoy a home away from home.

Mike & Christina

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cozy cottage! An adorable home with every amenity you could ask for! A very peaceful location, with a nice little store, bakery, and restaurant within walking distance. We throughly enjoyed our stay, and the privacy of this adorable little home! Dave was great, and more than accommodating to our needs! We will definitely be back again😊

Owner's Response: Mike and Christina great folks. Sold their nearby house but needed some more time to finish the deal so they stayed in the cottage. Now off to sunny Florida and I'm a little jealous. Wow, left some nice things behind for the next renters. Very kind. Best Regards.

Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for temporary housing until my apartment in the area became available, and I couldn't have asked for a better place! The cottage is extremely clean and has anything you can possibly need. I was there for a month and there's not many places like this where you can get a full kitchen and washer and dryer. The landlord, David, was excellent! Very friendly and was there to help accommodate you in every way possible. I'd definitely recommend this cottage, and stay again!

Owner's Response: Right. This house is perfect for folks like Mindy. A home between homes.

Rental in Burnt Hills, NY

  • 4 of 5

We spent a month in this rental and we especially enjoyed the proximity to Saratoga Springs. Very convenient for groceries, restaurants, etc. Rental was very clean and having a washer and dryer in the basement was great.

Wifi worked well and very quiet location. The only suggestion we would have is to update the linens. Had a great month there. The owner was very easy to talk with and he followed through with everything.

Owner's Response: Gene And Barbara are very nice folks that seem to be the prototypical reverse snow birds we see here in the summer. Good advice appreciated about the linens and we will make an upgrade there. Best Regards and safe travels to Gene and Barb.

Owner's Response: Bob and Rosemarie are from Florida. Our house seems to be a favorite spot for Florida visitors coming up to visit family and enjoy the spring and summer of upstate New York.... But it seems rarely in February.

Quaint and very clean little cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was about as nice as you can get for the area. This little cottage is detached from the main house so you can come and go as you need without disturbing anyone else and it has everything you need; the range and microwave are like new and having a washer and dryer in the basement is a big plus. David will do whatever he can do to make your stay is as comfortable and hassle free as possible. I recommend this place to anyone not wanting to be in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the big cities.

Owner's Response: Chris was a Global Foundries work visitor from Arizona that stayed at our place for several months. I know he appreciated the front door being so close to his car during this past winter.

Quiet Comfortable Stay in Historic Ballston

  • 5 of 5

Our month passed quickly, pleasantly, and comfortably as we genuinely enjoyed our stay necessitated by home renovation.

The residence was exactly as pictured and described. The landlord was courteous, amazingly helpful, and exceedingly pleasant to deal with. We heartily recommend this property to anyone desiring a place to stay and have already done so to friends and relations.

Although a car is useful for transportation, many services and activities are located within walking distance including bus connections. The cottage location is conveniently close to Capital Region universities; technology centers; museums of racing, dance, and more; cultural centers such as Proctors Theater, Troy Music Hall, Saratoga Performing Arts Center, and others; and sports activities: Saratoga Race Course, collegiate sports, and many golf courses

Owner's Response: Tom and Ann live one town away but needed a place while their house was being renovated. They Stayed for a month. They left the place immaculate and like we encourage folks to do, they left a few things behind like soaps and spices for the next renters.
