This is a magnificent Victorian mansion that is now a wonderful inn. There is so much history associated with this property. The restoration that breathed life into this home was perfectly done. It restored the glory of this incredible place. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. We stayed 2 nights in the "Kate". It had a very comfortable bed and... More

I would recommend this B&B highly with a couple of heads up. The air conditioning is not good enough to make it comfy on very hot humid days but I am sure it works fine in normal conditions. The food was simply a disappointment. I understand B&B is not all about the second B but for the price they charge... More

We had a wonderful weekend at this marvelous old mansion. Scheduled for demolition in the 70's until 2 entrepreneurs saw the beauty lying amid the rubble and renovated the mansion back to its Victorian grandeur. The interior is spectacular, and the staff is marvelous. You feel like royalty as you walk into the great hall, dining room and library. Everyone... More

What a great place to stay. We went during the Dave Matthews Band weekend at SPAC. Oddly enough we found this place when everything else was booked and prices for even Holiday Inns were outrageous. Our room was $189 night. They could gouge people, but they don't so that makes them 5 star to me. Friendly, mellow, cool staff. Gorgeous... More

This place is beautifully restored, wonderfully run, and awesome to stay in! Built 1873, it is amazing! Price is decent too!! It is in the heart of Saratoga, N.Y. , only a block from the magnificent Congress Park! You will not be disappointed!

Great room, beautiful house and architecture. Room had a pool table and jacuzzi tub. Within walking distance of restaurants and downtown, as well as the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. Only complaint was that the room was very cold at night.

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent anniversary stay at the Batcheller Mansion Inn. What a beautiful historic place, right in the heart of Saratoga Springs. The accomodations were simply outstanding and the breakfast was very enjoyable. The innkeeper--Martha--was most welcoming, and very helpful in attending to our every need...and answering our many questions about the mansion and the town! We would... More

Stunning mansion next to Congress Park across from downtown Saratoga Springs. In perfect condition. Rooms vary in size, but are all carefully appointed with comfortable beds, body-conforming mattresses. Amazing breakfasts cooked in a kitchen to die for. You can't do better in Saratoga.

Booked this location purely on the picture of the outside. Fascinating building. Doug was very welcoming even though they had us booked in for the previous night. Miscommunication somewhere, upgraded our room, and helped with our heavy luggage. Saratoga is a really pretty town, real picture postcard. Room was large and comfortable, bed was great. Doug recommend an Italian restaurant... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
