Perfect Saratoga, NY Location
The perfect Saratoga location. Only 2 blocks to the famous historic Racetrack and equal distance to Saratoga's beautiful Victorian downtown with great restaurants, unique shopping and historic sites.
Our home was built in 1893 and is 3,000 square ft of comfortable living space. We have a living room, a formal dining room with Mission style Stickley dining set. There is a half bath and laundry on the first floor. The kitchen has a cathedral ceiling with counter seating and flows from the large family room. There are front and back staircases. We enjoy a traditional Saratoga front porch but also have a screened porch with a table for outdoor dining.
Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The master suite has 5 windows and a King bed. There are 2 entrances into the master bath which has a walk in shower of Carrera marble. The second full bath has a shower and antique claw foot tub original to the house. The remaining 3 bedrooms all have Queen beds. We have Central A/C and off street parking for 1 car. There is a gas grill.
We are a short walk to the Saratoga Racecourse and to Saratoga’s lively downtown with its many restaurants and independently owned shops.
Saratoga Springs is a 3 hour drive from New York City, Boston or Montreal. Being in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains we are a day trip away from Lake Placid and a short drive to Lake George, “the Queen of lakes”.
There are many outdoor activities in and around Saratoga Springs including an abundance of golf, kayaking, many lakes, rock climbing and historic sites. Saratoga Springs enjoys perfect summers, beautiful winters and the most colorful autumn one could ever hope to see. We are a wedding destination and he summer home of the New York City Ballet, the Philadelphia Orchestra and the New York City Opera. The Saratoga Performing Arts Center also hosts the Freihofer Jazz Festival and many other concerts throughout the summer months.

Linda and Russ have had a variety of careers and are currently focusing on some different projects. Russ has shelved his Landscape Architectural practice to pursue music and his unusual style of sculpture while gnawing his way through our local library. Linda is involved in Urban Forestry in Saratoga Springs among other pursuits.
Great location for visiting Saratoga, walking distance to both the track and all of the downtown restaurants/bars. Didn’t meet Russ but Linda was there to let us in and she was great and very hospitable. The room we had was adequate and quiet. Would stay again.

Lovely, spotless home in an ideal location and neighborhood. Us two Moms Arrived later than expected for a weekend regatta and were welcomed with a nice glass of wine and conversation. We had a few last minUte schedule changes and Linda went out of her way to accommodate us, despite the fact they had a busy weekend in the works. Linda and Russell are experienced hosts who had great recommendations for restaurants and bars (Loved Hattie’s and The Wine Bar). While we spent most of daylight at our sons’ regatta, the time with the hosts and in the House was relaxing and pleasant. Gave us plenty of private space but were available for any questions or concerns-of course there were none! Nice extras with fresh coffee, spring water in The bedrooms and comfy beds with nice linens. Nice, spotless bathroom with thoughtful toiletries. This is THE place to stay in Saratoga Springs. Perfect for two traveling friends (like us) or a couple. Thx Linda and Russell!!!

This place is more beautiful by far than the photos show. Absolutely spotless, and delightfully decorated, it was perfect for me and two friends while we attended the Flurry Dance weekend downtown. Linda and Russ are gracious, interesting hosts. Do plan to eat out, and enjoy the terrific restaurants.

We had a fantastic time attending First Night Saratoga for NYE 2018 - and being able to stay at Linda & Russ's was definitely a large part of that! They were incredibly welcoming and their home is absolutely beautiful. My travel buddy and I were both sad that we could only stay one night and had plans straight away after arriving -- we happily would've spent more time in the spacious and clean common areas if our schedule had allowed. We were well within walking distance to all the attractions in downtown Saratoga. This is a lovely home with lovely hosts - you will not be disappointed with your stay here!
