SWIMMING POOL, SAUNA, JACUZZI, STEAM SHOWER, TIPI!
YOUR OWN PRIVATE RETREAT IN THE SPA CITY!
Hidden Jewel, now ready to be discovered!
This exquisite home has a history of many happy times, family gatherings and personal transformations. The energies of love and caring which emanate here await you, your family and friends.
Inspired by her world travels, the owner has artistically designed with collectibles from around the globe. The experience of being here is one of
homelike comfort, casual elegance, richness, adventurous mystery and attention to detail-focusing beauty(the ‘Oh’ and ‘Ah’ of it.). Ancient Tibetan wedding chests, Malaysian Puppet Dolls, Central and South American Masks and Ceramics, Hard Wood Floors, Oriental Carpets…
Conveniently close to all that the beautiful Spa City has to offer, yet very far
away…in so many ways….
Open the back door and step into an enchanted garden, a peaceful
dimension where time slows and deep relaxation begins.
Take a stroll, contemplate the beauty of the perennial gardens or hand feed our fish in the koi pond. Meditate listening to the trickling of the water fountain or sit on one of the benches and become one with the nature. Bird baths and feeders draw our aviary companions of all kinds. Let the chimes and Thai Monastery bells be the music in your ears.
Whether you want to feel the adventure of spending the night outside, share the storytelling, drum or perform a traditional fire ceremony an original Native American teepee will welcome you.
Summer in Saratoga would not be such without the outdoor dining.
The wrap-around multilevel deck provides ample space for fun and entertaining or you may want to choose the screened porch which provides you with warm evening breezes absent of any arthropods.
Roundtable and Chairs
Chase lounges by the pool.
Your own private resort! What FUN!
Oh, but what about those crisp mornings on the Front Porch Café with the strong Espresso, and clear mind for picking the day’s winners?!
Our Gourmet Kitchen:
Newly remodeled, bright and cheery with a contemporary country twist.
Stainless Steel Appliances
French Press and Espresso Maker
Antique Butcher Block Top Country Table
Fully Stocked and Equipped
Feast on the views of the gardens and meadow beyond the stockade fence. A meadow which is a home to geese and the dining room of deer.
Elegant Dining Room:
Spread out your meal on the Impressive Hand Crafted Antique Table from India. Fill up the wine rack, light-up the candle, turn the music on and…voila!… you are all set for that unforgettable dining experience!
Of course food is not Everything!
All our bedrooms are equipped with new mattresses, fine designer linens,
comfortable pillows , blankets and comforters. Custom built closets with ample space for your casual and gala wardrobes. Lighting that creates an intimate atmosphere with interesting art objects to please the eye.
We have three bedrooms with Queen Size Beds and the study that can be turned into fourth, semi-private one with a Queen Size Futon.
The Master Bedroom is truly masterful. It expresses intimacy with warm sensuous tones, animal print bedding and French doors opening to the upper deck and a natural parasol of the Magnolia tree.
The Master Bathroom
Newly remodeled with an eclectic flair combining contemporary lighting with Jacuzzi tub and traditional hand painted Guatemalan basins.
The saying is that a woman has everything in her purse, except for a kitchen sink, well…It was a bathroom sink that traveled in a personal bag on the way back from Guatemala. Not only the owner’s bag but her sister’s as well. Were some of the eyebrows raised at the customs?…guess!
Yes, there is a stock of Plush Towels for our guests to use.
The Spa Bathroom - This is The Spa City after all!
Has a Steam Shower with Reclining Bench, and a Full Dry/Moist Sauna.
Truly a nice library. Classics, guides, nature and more. We have an over-sized soft leather recliner for you to sink into while exploring.
Here is where the anthropologist, the artist, the conversationalist and the musician meet.
A really soft Leather Couch and Recliner, Entertainment center with Extensive Music Library. Piano, Hand Made Belizean Drum (Yep, it traveled on the plane as well), a Marble Fireplace create a special ambiance to touch on all the senses. A perfect space for sharing those precious moments that memories are made of. Whether it is watching a favorite movie, playing Monopoly, listening to the opera or making your own music the journey is yours....Read more

We rented this house in april 2012. Everything in the house and in the backyard was picture perfect. The house is conveniently located in Saratoga Springs and is a decent distance from the urban city of New York. We were surprised how close the house was to the racetrack, mineral springs, and the town of Saratoga. The house itself is well maintained and spotless. Some of the most attractive things are the large collection of books, piano, and the hidden treasures located around the house. We enjoyed the sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, fireplace, and the immaculate backyard. The whole property is fenced off, making it perfect for pets. We would highly recommend it!
"Felt very much at home in this beautifully appointed treasure!"

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us! We loved the whirlpool tub, the dining and living rooms, the fireplace wood (very cold week we had this week!), the wine stand, the landscaping (lovely with snow, must be exquisite in the warmer months), and the wonderful decorating appointments, each one feeling as if it has its own special story.
We appreciated how conveniently located the house is to the places we were here to visit, especially New Skete. We also appreciated how quick the response and turn-around time was in making the accommodations, how thorough the instructions and informational materials are, and even how quickly we received our rental security deposit back after we completed our stay.
Many blessings to you!
P.S. Please accept this bottle of Young Living's "Christmas Spirit” as our thank you for helping us share "Christmas Spirit” with the Monks of New Skete and our rescue dog, Maka Maka. His blessing there this week was extraordinary.
I feel your blessings Elizabeth!
