We stayed at the Union Gables Inn during the August 2013 race meet at Saratoga. The inn is an old Victorian home on Union avenue within an easy walk of the Saratoga racecourse . It is also an easy walk in the other direction to Congress Park and the bustling scene in downtown Saratoga Springs. There is off-street parking. So, just park your car , put on some walking shoes and enjoy. We stayed in a third floor room. It was spacious and comfortable. All of the rooms I saw looked lovely. They have added a gorgeous swimming pool this year, which we did not try due to weather, but it is a nice touch. The grounds are gardens and lovely. The front wrap-around porch is a great place to have breakfast, which is expertly prepared and very tasty. A good way to start the day. Some folks like to do the breakfast at the track. We did it once. If you're stating at UNION GABLES , forget the breakfast at the track....it is crowded and not nearly as good as what you get at Union Gables.
Paul and Candace are delightful and take good care of you. They have good suggestions for dinner. We particularly enjoyed Mouzon house and its sister restaurant, one Caroline Street Bistro. Outstanding jazz at Caroline street bistro , and that whole area is hopping at night with bars and music, after which you can stroll back to the quiet of Union Gables and have a great night sleep before venturing out again to check out the horses.
I would avoid the wine bar for dinner. Food was ok at best, and service was terrible. Can't go wrong with Mouzon or Caroline Street though.
