Welcome to the Westchester House - Saratoga's hidden jewel. The inn is nestled in a residential neighborhood of tree lined streets. Here guests are greeted by name and pampered with personalized service. Immerse yourself in a gracious, Old World ambiance. Share in Saratoga's magic. Master carpenter Almeron King built this gracious 1885 Queen Anne Victorian Inn as his family home. King's skill and imagination abound. The handcrafted chestnut moldings, and elaborately carved fireplace mantles reflect a strong Eastlake influence. The whimsical roofline, complete with cupola and balcony, soars skyward. Each elegantly appointed bedroom combines antique furnishings with up to date comforts. You will find firm mattresses, king and queen-size beds, luxury linens, tiled baths, ceiling fans, air conditioning, and chocolates. Awaken to the aroma of our own special blend of freshly ground, imported coffees. Your breakfast of freshly squeezed juice, homebaked breads and fresh fruit is served on crystal and china in our spacious dining room looking out on a magnificent old maple tree. Breakfast is a special occasion accompanied by spirited conversation. The charm and excitement, museums and racetracks, specialty shops and restaurants of Saratoga are an easy walk from the Westchester House.

My wife and I very much enjoyed our recent stay there. The couple who own and run the place are friendly and helpful, the early evening gatherings in the garden with other guests were relaxing (and sometimes informative), and the location quite convenient.

The location is great for both the track and convenient to town. Our room was quite small but the bathroom was spacious and all was very clean. Our biggest beef was the breakfast--no hot dishes and the same meal every day which was fruit, the exact same rolls, juice, a bit of cheese and ham. I think it could have been more imaginative than that...certainly based on our experience at other Saratoga BandB's.

Hospitality and location 10. Walk downtown and to the track, can't beat that. Breakfast is cold, basic. Rooms are perfect!

The Westchester House is a great place for a nice and relaxing stay in Saratoga Springs. Bob was a great host, and I enjoyed meeting Stephanie as well. I would come back! All around quality place - the breakfast is great and the air conditioned rooms are a plus.
