About Garth Ellms

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

Why Garth Ellms chose Saratoga Springs

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!

What makes this house unique

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!

Outstanding home pleanty of room for vacations or whatever your planning

  • 5 of 5

House was clean and organized on check in. On the first walk through we noticed that the owners added two stand up paddle boards in addition to having 4 kayaks. The owner quickly answered any questions I had. Great place to have friends and family over for events because it is close to the track or a lot of Saratogas wedding venues. Parking we had a mini van a 10 passenger and three cars, that would be about it for parking and takes some planning ahead of time. I asked the furniture store owner and got their approval to store 4 more cars there about a 200ft walk from the house, don't just assume you can park there. There are spots for everyone from the 4 decks to a fire pit, to a dock that will give you the best sunsets. Would stay there again!

Amazing views and lots of space to enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Saratoga Lake House. Garth was extremely helpful with answering questions and providing great tips for restaurants and things to do.

The main area is perfect for spending time with family and the views out the windows can't be beat! It looks like they keep improving this property as some of the photos didn't line up with what was here. They put in a new staircase and area for kayaks and paddle boards down by the lake, tiled the entire kitchen and entrance area which looks like from the photos use to be wood, and best of all they added a very cute queen size bedroom. The bedroom was a great addition as we were going to be tight on beds and this was great to have one less thing for everyone to agree on!!

Can't wait to come back and hopefully during the summer so we can enjoy the huge decks and fire pit.

Unfortunately the house Owner isn't prepared to rent his house when we are in the winter season, Never Again. The house was very cold all the rooms we are out of water for 2 days so disappointed, all my Guest was very upset we had the worst celebration.

Owner's Response: Wow, I’m very surprised to read this after the praise you shared to my face when we came over immediately to fix the fireplace and alleged issue with the heat. Being a holiday it was hard to get someone over to the house to fix the issue with the heat. Ready to pay for the emergency call luckily nobody was available as when I arrived to try and fix the “lack of heat” issue we read 69 on the main area heat and 74 in the basement. Some folks must like it really warm but to say heat wasn’t working when it was negative 10 degrees out and you wanted the temperature to go above 74 has me thinking. As you were trying to rent this property again for next year when I arrived to “fix the heat” I assume you are taking it out on this review. When this property has 5 stars across the board and you put up a 1, one will hopefully question the user. No Thank You, The Owner & Property Management Team

Lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a great house. Super-close to the track and downtown, full of all the amenities you could possibly need -- and huge! We had seven adults and seven kids, and everyone had plenty of room to spare. Comfy beds, great kitchen ... and amazing decks to watch the sunsets.

Perfect for our family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this house with 17 people for a multigenerational family gathering after our daughter's wedding. 7 grandparents. The layout was perfect for us with plenty of space for everyone. Kitchen was very well equipped, not always the case in these types of rentals, with plenty of dishes for everyone. Large refrigerator upstairs, plus large one downstairs, as well as a smaller one. We easily parked 6 cars. Also thoroughly enjoyed the paddle boards and kayaks. Garth was very responsive as well, and I am convinced they are trying hard to create a space which provides maximum comfort for all guests. Most of our elderly folks were able to stay on street level so as to avoid stairs to lower level. I would recommend bringing in one of the outside chairs (sturdy and with arms) for any older folks in the group. Thank you!
