WOW. The photos don't do the view justice. We enjoyed a family reunion using both the main cabin and the smaller cottage. We always go to Saratoga for a day each August and were excited to find this new place. We played games in the main room, enjoyed sunrises on the deck each morning, and watched in awe of a powerful set of thunderstorms rolled in and over the mountains. We enjoyed a plethora of rainbows and still were able to utilize the fire pit for a few as well. Loved the plethora of counter space in both houses for food prep and spreads. We loved it and can't wait to return.
Our family enjoyed this beautiful mountaintop retreat over Christmas this year. What an incredible way to spend the holiday! The view was spectacular, whether the sun was shining or the mountains were covered in a low fog. The house was very comfortable for the six of us with plenty of room to lounge around, enjoy the fireplace, read and play board games. Loved the huge island we gathered around to prepare meals! We took a trip to Saratoga Springs and a hike up to Merck Farms. Both were easy to get to and enjoyable in their own way. The whole area is lovely with well-kept working farms spread throughout the rolling hills. The owner could not do enough to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Will definitely be coming back to enjoy this beautiful location again!
My family (five adults) stayed here in August for a family get together and it was fabulous. We hadn't been to this area in NY State before and loved it. It is very rural with lots of cornfields, some very shy baby cows along the road up, and a creamery just down the hill with very good ice cream. The area has lots of charm without being touristy.
The house has a 1/2 mile driveway up the mountain, that passes by a really nice pond and benches to sit on along the way. We didn't make the trip up by foot because it was way too hot out but in the fall I can imagine doing it.
Outside there is a lot of room for entertaining - way more than we needed. There is a nice barbecue area with a fire pit (used the grill, not the pit; it was hot). The views from the house are even better than the photographs. Sunrise is spectacular. We took day trips to Saratoga Springs and to Manchester, VT.
Inside the house the living room is very comfortable, neat and clean. The upstairs bedroom is super spacious; the others are normal size. The bathrooms are modern and clean. The owners were extremely accommodating and the property caretaker and his wife are real gems. They did everything to make our stay pleasant and it was. We would defintely go back.
