Located in the heart of downtown Saratoga Springs on historic Congress Park, this magnificent inn represents old world sophisticated elegance with a new world attitude. One of America's great Victorian houses, the Batcheller Mansion Inn simply cannot compare to other Saratoga Inns. Built in 1873, this American architectural masterpiece is an elegant mixture of small hotel and living history museum with the intimate feel of a bed and breakfast. Intricately carved European woodwork, hand carved marble fireplaces, family relics on loan from museums, original 1800's Batcheller family furnishings, and spellbinding grandeur make this one of a kind Saratoga inn and living history museum a stately retreat. Throughout the past 137 years, some of Saratoga's grandest parties were staged here, hosting U.S. Presidents, European Royalty, Dignitaries and Hollywood Celebrities. Designed by Nicols and Halcott of Albany, NY in 1873, this High Victorian Gothic mansion exhibits influences from the French Renaissance, Italian, and Egyptian styles. The red and gray slate mansard roof is bifurcated by dormers, each accented by a huge clamshell arch. The ivory stucco facade is studded by a myriad of ornate bays and its conical tower, resembling a minaret, is right out of Arabian nights. That bit of exotica was the result of original owner George S. Batcheller. This Saratoga inn was selected as Inn of the Month in the April 1999 issue of Country Inns. The mansion has also been the subject of many architectural studies, and has been featured in many books and film throughout its history. The Batcheller Mansion was specifically cited as an inspiration by Kevin Cummings, Development Manager for Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort.

We stayed in the Grant room on the 3rd floor. Nice wide staircase to get luggage up and down. The room boasts a full size regulation pool table. The trouble is that you do not have enough space all around the table to make a proper shot and the balls always rolled to one side,

We are looking for two rooms in December for 4 adults and one child, age 3. Would that be allowed?
No children that young allowed. But Union Gables in Saratoga does. It too is elegant!

"one room is more beautiful than the next! there are a few really luxurious rooms"
"If you want the best, The Grant room is great, but then again, all the rooms are unique"
"I would say the cost is a bit more than mid-range, but if you ask for AAA or Military Discount, the B&B were more than happy to apply."
"if have chance worth the visit"
"The Grant room is awesome, but its also on the third floor: lotsa steps. Ask about discounts for veterans."
