We had the honor of having our micro wedding at the Inn at Five Points on June 12, 2020. Long story short, our original wedding plans were canceled due to Covid-19 however we still wanted to get married on June 12th, our original date. We reached out to our photographer Dawn Honsky who recommended the inn. The owner Eilis had so many ideas and made the transition of a large wedding to a smaller wedding so easy. Eilis made our experience amazing. She was all hands-on deck and made sure every detail happened in order to make sure we had a wonderful experience. If any bride and groom are looking for a location for a micro wedding, my husband and I highly recommend the Inn at Five Points. Fyi, the food by Austin is amazing!! Ask for the artichoke dip!
The Inn at Five Points is the most stunning victorian property. Conveniently located only minutes from the famous Saratoga Race Course and a short walk from the center of town and some pretty great local restaurants, it's the ideal place to stay in Saratoga Springs. What I loved most about this spot was its charm. It’s so easy for hotels these days to hone in on the trends of the times, but The Inn at Five Points has stays true to its roots and that’s what makes it so unique. Plus, the inn owners are so lovely and accommodating! I highly recommend this spot if you're looking for a weekend escape.
The inn is a beautifully converted victorian home with such attention to detail. The front porch was the perfect spot to sip our morning coffee and the living room, fully equipped with a recorded player and games, was a nice way to close out our evenings. While the entire stay was contactless due to covid precautions the host was still very attentive and made our experience personable. Every morning we had a personalized goodie bag filled will breakfast items and snacks which was perfect to grab and go exploring! This was my husbands and I first time staying at a B&B and we loved it. We look forward to going back soon.
We spent one night here at the end of September, on a road trip around western New England and eastern New York. There's not much going on in Saratoga Springs during a pandemic, particularly in the off-season for the races, but it's a very pretty town and this inn is very close to the track, as well as to the commercial center of town. Our room (room 6) was lovely, and since we were the only ones staying there that night I took a look around at the others as well. They're all very nice, but I think room 6 is the best - a view over the small side garden, pretty dressing-table and trunk, and a nice big bathroom. The house is a renovated Victorian, but the inside has a lighter and more open feel than most Victorians, with nice period touches and of course a lot of equestrian imagery. Due to the covid-19 restrictions, the hosts weren't able to greet us personally, but they were communicative over email and left us all of the information we needed. I was sad to not have a chance to try what I'm sure is a great cooked breakfast, but traveling during a pandemic means you can't always get what you want. I'd love to go back at some point, and would recommend it to others. …
There's a reason we keep coming back to the IAFP - it is certainty in uncertain times. I'll be honest, I was nervous. We thought we might even pass this year. But we knew we wanted to support our favorite Saratoga get away and all of our fears were instantly quelled. Everyone in upstate NY is taking this seriously while still providing an enjoyable experience. Contact-less check in was easy - and it did not take away from the level of communication we have come to expect of the Petrosino family. We might even try to sneak in a fall trip this year as well! If you are on the fence you will not be disappointed about booking your stay here. It is just what we needed!
