The Mansion of Saratoga

801 Route 29 , Rock City Falls, 12863 USA (Show map)

About

The Mansion Inn is a luxurious country villa & retreat, offering an intimate, elegant and very private location, just 7 miles west of Saratoga Springs city center. The Mansion you will enter is very much the grand home of a 19th Century industrialist and after 150 years it remains virtually unchanged. Each of the stately guest rooms and romantic suites are unique in their appointments all offer private baths. The rooms are luxurious, air conditioned, spacious and all have been appointed to provide you with maximum comfort. The Inn is full of striking details, such as the six fireplaces with massive mantelpieces, original gas chandeliers with Waterford glass shades, etched-glass doors, parquet floors, 2" thick pocket doors and even an unsigned Tiffany chandelier in the gracious main entrance. The Mansion sits in a grove of giant tiger-tailed Spruce making use of over three acres to provide guests with a perfect playground. You can enjoy a full gormet breakfast each morning in the 19th Century formal dining room or, if you prefer, on the elegant 60-foot long Victorian porch overlooking the gardens and fountain. During summer months we serve breakfast on the garden deck under the 200 year old giant spruce trees. At this luxury inn, the choice is yours. To the rear of the property is the idyllic Mansion pond complete with fish, tadpoles, a cascading stream and occasional ducks. A blanket, good book and perhaps a bottle of wine will make a sunny afternoon a perfect personal

We LOVED this Inn!

5 on October 24, 2013

We took a mini vacation and stayed here for 2 nights, and it was wonderful! We stayed in the George West room. It has a working fireplace in it, which was quite lovely! We were the only ones there the first night we stayed, the inn staff encouraged us to explore the house and the grounds. They made us feel very welcome. They have a fantastic event room in their rustic barn. They also had a huge tent on the porch of the house for events. Chef Rick did an amazing job with breakfast both mornings. He was super friendly and his food was absolutely delish! The rates were very reasonable, especially because we had a midweek stay in October. We would definitely recommend this Inn!


FABULOUS first time B&B experience!!!

4.4 on November 23, 2010

My boyfriend and I decided to get away for a weekend to Upstate NY. I did so much research to find the perfect place because this would be the first time we've stayed at a b&b. I wanted a vintage looking place, with a working fireplace, that didn't scream cheesy or old and musty. We met Lori(and her too cute baby Charlie), she informed us we were the only guests there that evening(Friday) and that breakfast would be served whenever we wanted the next morning. She let us explore the house and check out the other rooms. We stayed in the George West room as its the only one with a working gas fireplace. It was decorated well, clean, there was plenty of space for our stuff and the bed...ooh the bed! Lori let us into the room and the lights were dimly lit, the fireplace was ablaze and there was music softly playing. She brought us some wine, chatted with us about dinner suggestions, gave us a map with very good directions and left us feeling very happy with our choice. We spent a lovely weekend in Saratoga Springs and enjoyed our stay at the Mansion. Shannon(I think was her name) made a very delicious breakfast for us on Saturday morning and Rick...I'd like to bring him home with me! He's a phenomenal cook and such a sweet and funny guy!!! I would HIGHLY recommend The Mansion to anyone looking for a b&b in Saratoga Springs. Both my boyfriend and I look forward to going back sometime in the very near future. Thanks so much to the staff for a great experience!!!


Good Pick

I haven't been to this B&B for a couple of years, but I remember a very positive experience. Room was adequate, breakfast was outstanding, staff was friendly and helpful and lastly they had a wine and cheese gathing in the afternoon. What a great way to spend an hour or two.


marvelous mansion

4.4 on August 21, 2009

We wanted to enjoy Saratoga Springs, but wanted to get away from the noise and bustle of town, and the Mansion was a perfect choice. A real departure from everyday life. Chef Rick's breakfast was an incredible gastronomic goumet feast every morning. The grounds might benefit from some professional landscaping, but otherwise, the interior was spectacular. Thanks very much for taking good care of us!


Perfect.

We had our wedding at the Mansion in May, and everything was just perfect. Every single person who worked at and with the Mansion was attentive to our every need, whether it was the type of scones we liked in the morning or the timing of the ceremony. Whether it is for a wedding or just a romantic weekend getaway (which we have also done there), the Mansion is a great spot near enough but far enough away from the bustle of downtown Saratoga.

Rooms & Rates

George West Room

Painted in a deep shade of maroon with cream molding this room was the breakfast room in 1866. Today it features a French chestnut King bedroom set, a matching marble dresser, mirrored armoire and a private bath. The West room is located on the first floor just off the library for easy access. The multi-wood parquet floor is partially covered by a beautiful oriental rug with the original four-arm Waterford chandelier hanging above the bed. On the west wall of the room is a massive white marble (WORKING) gas fireplace flanked by two 8' windows. The feel of this wonderful room is both warm and romantic. It's a very special place that would be perfect for an anniversary, birthday celebration or a bottle of Champagne with the person you adore.

San Souci Room

Look out any of the front windows and view the millstream from this magnificent southern exposure room. Its 14' ceilings are perfect for the commanding mahogany king size bed that the room features. An original bedroom of the Mansion, the walls are painted dark and rich to compliment the gold and silver tones of the bedding. One of the most interesting furniture pieces in the Mansion is the Victorian Empire style mirrored triple armoire on the north wall of the room. As with all rooms the San Souci has a private bath.

Canfield Room

Guests love the opulence of the second floor Canfield room. Painted cool Wedgwood blue, the Canfield is an original Mansion bedroom with 14' ceilings, private bath and an opulent king-size bed with matching dresser. This room, like the San Souci, faces the old mill and pond offering great windows with southern exposure. The Waterford chandelier located in this room is set in an especially interesting ceiling medallion. You eyes will be drawn to the room's eastern wall featuring a unique marble fireplace (non-functioning) and a portrait of a rather portly nobleman.

Artesian Room

Located on the western side of the 2nd floor, the Artesian room is the most private room of the Mansion. An original bedroom, it includes a private bath, 14' ceilings, Waterford chandelier and cream colored floral wall covering.

Excelsior Room

On the east side of the 2nd floor of the Mansion, this bedroom room looks down on the fountain and gardens and is a knockout. The 14' ceiling, golden walls and white marble fireplace become a backdrop for the 19th Century high Victorian and quite decadent queen bedroom set. The distinctive black set is hand painted with a floral and gold leaf design. The over-mantel is Victorian East Lake and wonderfully reflects the two-arm Waterford chandelier. As

Kayaderosseras Suite

On the second floor we have combined two rooms in the rear of the Mansion into a very comfortable and romantic suite with private bath. The front bedroom offers a queen sized four poster bed with a paddle fan to keep a cool breeze always blowing. Walk through a companionway to a second bedroom also featuring a queen sized bed. Both rooms are decorated in deep olive and gold colors with a full bath located off the second bedroom. Since these rooms are in the rear of the Mansion they will tend to be private and quiet. It's a perfect accommodation for a family.

Casswood Room

At the top of the grand staircase you will find the Casswood Suite. This is not the run of the mill queen size bedroom. It features an opulent bed chamber decorated in golds and reds. The bathroom is dramatic and features a jacuzzi tub with French doors that open to second floor private deck. It's a great place to escape in your Mansion robe with a great book and a glass of your favorite wine.

This room has a beautiful fabric draped ceiling and windows that wrap around you giving you a gorgeous 360 degree views of the entire area by day and the stars by night.
