Got back last weekend 1/12/13 this was a gift given to us by someone very special to me, arrived early, our room was ready, met by Dan the innkeeper and cook. He gave a fantastic tour of the mansion & a great history lesson. Rooms were all gorgeous, clean & each uniquely styled. Staff always available & accommodating. All restaurants & shops within very short walking distance, museum & park across the street. Full breakfast cooked to order by Dan, delicious (stuffed French toast a MUST, eggs in the hole my hubby's favorite). Fresh baked goods daily, all served on beautiful china. Coffee, tea & hot chocolate available all day. A wonderful experience. Will be back again. In fact, loved it so much booked 5 rooms together as a gift to our children early March!!
- 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
