We live very close to the Batcheller Mansion Inn, driving past it all the time. It has been a dream to stay, so, on a very snowy night we were happy to have reservations for the George Room. What a beautiful, welcoming home. Our room exceeded our expectations, very large, clean and very well decorated and maintained. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had a lovely tub. We enjoyed the candles in the fireplace and the snowy view of Congress Park. As we made our way down to breakfast the next morning, the inn keeper, Dan was very accommodating asking what we would like for breakfast, presenting us with some ideas of specialties he liked to make. We were treated to a tour of the mansion after breakfast and loved hearing all about the history and fun details surrounding past owners, architecture, etc. You can tell that Dan loves what he does and it was fun to hear the excitement that he has for the home! It is easy to see why, it is just a gem that we feel very blessed to have experienced first hand!
- 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
