Pat's communication was really good. We were in touch while I monitored our ETA driving up from NYC, and she messaged me within a couple of minutes each time. She was there to receive us upon arrival and was warm and welcoming. The place is spacious and quiet. It's up a staircase from the garage and otherwise doesn't share any walls with the rest of the house. It's well-furnished and felt comfortable. I only had two little qualms: The bathroom did not seem well scrubbed down, though the overall apartment did seem clean and well maintained, so I would not get too hung up on that in this case. Also the locks on the doors were a bit funky. We were less concerned about safety and more about possibly inconveniencing our host if anything went wrong with trying to open the doors. We were only really there to sleep, as we were there for my brother's wedding, so it was quite hectic for us and nice to come home to some peace there. In fact one of the nights, we took advantage of the opportunity to stand outside quietly for a few minutes and look up at the stars, something we don't get to do in the concrete jungle where we live. We were there during a holiday weekend with a major concert going on all three nights, but we managed to be able to get cabs ok. The one time we couldn't was in the morning, and the walk to downtown was about 1.7 miles, walkable, but you're certainly not in it. If you want somewhere quiet and peaceful, but still want the town to be somewhat accessible, this could be a good choice. Pat was very cool and accommodating, as frazzled as we were with family events at all hours.
My friend and I had a lovely time at pats house! The area was wonderful and pat mad us feel really welcome! And we absolutely loved Saratoga springs, so beautiful!!!!! Just a heads up: make sure you don't lock the bottom lock because the key doesn't work for that one. We found that out the hard way lol but regardless we look forward to going up again in the near future and pats apartment will be the first place we look to rent. Thanks so much for your hospitality!!!!!
