The site is beautiful and relaxing. We stayed there for 5 days, and were very pleased. Easily accessible to the State Park and Opera through the back road, without having to go through downtown traffic. Neat place. Breakfasts were very good, and adapted to our dietary needs. Marianna is very good, congenial, attentive, and gave us good hints for where to go in town.

We stayed at the Farmstead for the Freihoffer Jazz Festival and it was perfect. Marianna and Rosemary were gracious innkeepers and the food was awesome. After evenings of partying-a wholesome, beautifully prepared breakfast hits the spot. Great coffee, quiet surrondings on a lovely farmstead. Everything was immaculate. We will return!

We made a last-minute decision on Friday to battle the fall-foliage-seeking crowds and brave a trip to Saratoga Springs for Saturday night. Turns out it was a Skidmore parents weekend so two other properties we first tried were booked up. Fortunately, the third call was the charm -- Marianna informed us that the Saratoga Farmstead had just had a weekend cancellation and the Sewing Room was ours if we wanted it.

It turned out to be one of those utterly serendipitous trips. A questionable weekend forecast gave way to a crisp and brilliant Saturday/ Sunday and the B&B itself is picture-perfect.

Marianna and Rosemary are exceptional hosts -- every detail attended to, the breakfast is bountiful and tasty, the rooms clean and charming, a wide and generous range of complimentary drinks and snacks provided, and the grounds of the Farmstead are a pleasure to wander. The women strike the perfect balance in following their guests' lead -- offering great suggestions for things to do/places to go when asked, but otherwise leaving guests to make themselves very much at home. They're both interesting and great conversationalists (but again, only if you want to engage, as they don't hover or interfere).

And if you ask nicely, they just might give you an impromptu rendition of "15 miles on the Erie Canal."

Truly a top-notch B&B experience.

Our trip to Saratoga, during opening week at the track, was a last minute decision. To our surprise finding a place to stay was nearly impossible...lucky for us one of the very few places available was The Farmstead. At first we thought it was pricey, but took into consideration that it was opening week at the track. Out of desperation we crossed our fingers and booked it.

As I said, lucky for us, the Farmstead had an availability. It is a very charming and quaint B&B. Marianna and Ro were absolutely wonderful. The house was very well kept, clean, inviting and warm. The Saratoga Suite was AWESOME...quite and very comfortable. In the morning we were greeted by Marianna, all the while the aroma coming from Ro's cooking was wafting throughout the house. Our experience in Saratoga, NY was great...lots of fun. We intend to go back and would not stay in any other place, but The Farmstead.
