Easy access to great restaurants and less than 5 minutes to the Horse Track and Downtown Saratoga Springs area (named top ten best main streets in America with numerous bars, restaurants, and shopping). One of the nicest golf courses is located about 2 miles from the house with an amazing restaurant and patio area. You will also find two other golf courses within minutes of this house!
I live in the area and own a family farm that is located about 15 minutes from the house, if you rent in Sept/Oct I would encourage you to come visit the farm on the weekends and say hello! I grew up in the area and moved away from college but the family business brought me home. After living on the farm I knew I needed a place to GET AWAY! This home is just that place although I can't sit still so I am continuously improving the home with new furniture, bathrooms, and paint! I want this home to have a feel that one would expect when renting a home on the water (not exactly how it is depicted in the photos i'm currently using!). My business is all about tradition and that is what I hope to make this home for visiting families and groups of friends as I continuously update it.
Garth Ellms purchased this house in 2015
This property is close to everything, on the water, and can house numerous families which I hope becomes the situation as I continue to update the home and look to add a pool with a great area to just kick back and relax!
Great thing about this home is you can comfortably enjoy it with 2-3 families and have your own space and personal quarters. The basement is a full walk out with a great room for the kids (television, games, couches, and best of all out of the way).
If you need to do some work while on vacation you will be taken care of as I have a home office setup here (fax machine, land line, printer, scanner, monitors to plug in laptop). Best of all is the extremely fast WIFI!
Saratoga Lake is lovely. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck and loved sitting by the fire we built in the evenings.
The pictures of this house on VRBO are amazing, but still don't do it justice. The house is beautiful, with every amenity you could possibly want. Tons of space, beautiful bathrooms, cathedral ceilings, two huge decks overlooking the lake, kayaks and a dock, firepit. The location was great, overlooking a gorgeous lake, less than 10 minutes from the track and main town. Boat rental shop a mile away. What more could you ask for? And to top it off, the family that is hired for the cleaning service were the sweetest, nicest, most helpful people and added to the great experience. Can't wait for an opportunity to come back!
Even though the reservation was made ten or eleven months out, we couldn’t believe our good fortune in finding an available lake house so close to Saratoga Springs. Every so often we’d check the VRBO description for the property to plan and dream about our small family reunion. What we saw is what we got and we’d strongly recommend this rental.
As first-time VRBO travelers, we found the system easy to navigate. The owner, Garth Ellms, was easy to reach with some questions that popped up along the way.
This spacious, well-furnished lakefront house easily and comfortably accommodated our group of 14 overnighters (including five children under age 8) and two or three day-trippers. Even with a couple of rainy days that kept most of us indoors, the layout prevented us from feeling we were on top of one another.
The furniture is comfortable and ample, with no worries about finding a seat. The common rooms are also large and accommodating, while at the same time it’s possible to get away from the crowd for some alone time.
The television setup is remarkable, with TVs throughout the house. Thanks to our nephew’s technical expertise, photos taken throughout the day could be enjoyed in a slide show that night.
With four kayaks and a dock, the boating and swimming opportunities are great, and as the lake is fairly shallow, there is an added safety bonus.
Yes, the parking gets a little tricky after the fifth car (thank goodness for Mini Coopers!), but we found it manageable.
The kitchen setup worked very well for us, with lots of pots and pans, utensils, and dishware. And the dishwasher proved equal to the task. Also valued are the two Weber grills on the upper and lower decks. The only item that might be added to the galley would be a tea kettle.
The beds are comfortable and there are a lot of them, with, as the VRBO listing points out, some sofa beds to augment the arrangements.
It’s clear that Garth Ellms is continuing to invest in this property as new construction is evident on the decks and outside stairs. Our guess is that this property is just going to get better and better.
A final word on location. This property is ideally situated. The lakefront provides swimming and boating opportunities and even though the traffic on Route 9P can get a little sporty at times, in the house or on the decks one is not really aware of it. Yet, you’re only seven or eight miles from downtown Saratoga Springs and all it has to offer. We had a delightful breakfast at the
We numbered 20, 18 adults and 2 teens, and stayed for 6 nights.. There was adequate room for all whether in groups or for those who wished privacy. All amenities were provided and the owner was attentive to all our requests. The location of the house is outstanding with wonderful views of sunset. A number of us enjoyed fishing off the dock with many fish caught(all were set free). The two teens enjoyed the kayaks and the adults rented a powered boat from a nearby marina. We also loved visiting the nearby city of Saratoga Springs for the shopping and excellent restaurants, and some of us enjoyed playing at the golf courses. The only caution for large groups such as ours is that parking is tight. We were able to fit 6 cars in the parking area, 3 minivans and 3 sedans.
yes, we would recommend this property to our friends or relatives.
To start with, you will not find a nicer host than Garth! He is always available to answer any questions and takes pride in making sure his guests have a wonderful time. This was our second year renting this amazing home. Numerous updates have been made to the home even since our last visit (summer 2015) = extra kayaks (total of 4 now) and a new staircase and entrance to the lake making it much easier to launch the kayaks, just to name a few. The multitude of outdoor spaces make it easy to find some privacy to read, sunbathe, sit by the fire, or enjoy a nice craft beer while taking in the gorgeous views, especially the sunsets! The two large living areas, with THE MOST COMFORTABLE couches in the world, make it easy for multiple families/groups to enjoy the home and not feel crowded. The home is also located a few miles from the main town of Saratoga Springs where there are many restaurants and breweries to check out. We suggest the peanut butter burger from Druthers Brewing Company, yum! The road that the home is located on also boasts great views of the lake making for an awesome bike or run (a few miles away is also a beautiful paved run trail with wildflowers flanking both sides- for those avoiding hills). The home is also a very short distance to the swim beach up the road with lifeguards and a great little restaurant, Doc Browns. DEFINITELY get the fish tacos there! The best part of all...our two dogs who love to sunbathe got to join us! We have already booked our week for next summer! Thanks Garth!
An amazing long weekend with friends for our 10 year Skidmore reunion. House comfortably fit 14 of us, and we could have squeezed more in on the awesome couches. Having kayaks and a high quality grill was really nice, and the views from the multiple decks made this a truly magical weekend.
One of the best locations in Saratoga and the Capital Region as a whole! Very easy access to the Northway at exit 14. Saratoga Race Track is located less than 5 minutes from the house. Downtown Saratoga is about 7 minutes from the house. Easy access to outlet shopping in Lake George (about 20 minutes). Six Flags is located about 20 minutes. Numerous ski resorts located within driving distance. Five great restaurants located within 5 minutes either by boat or car. GORGEOUS SUNSETS!
