The Washington Inn and its gracious host Joe are absolutely magical together.
Joe and his staff of elves maintain the property beautifully, the grounds and rooms are impeccable.
The porch embraces you for a stay with a glass of wine and a chat with newly found friends while nibbling on fresh pizza provided for the porch dwellers to enjoy.. (thank you Joe!)
By the way, the wine shop Crush and Cask is only couple of blocks down on the left ... you'll know Patty when you meet her
The breakfast is the standard as the other inns in Saratoga with great coffee, juice, fruit, cereals, and pastries, but I haven't ran into Joe's fresh baked sconces anywhere else:)
The buildings are charming with the perfect combination of Victorian style with updated conveniences.
We stayed in the same room twice this Summer.. 23.
Fair warning that if room in the shower is a 'must have', reserve a room with a tub.
The shower has wonderful water pressure but singles only.
The room was nicely put together, very clean and with a great working AC.
This was our second stay at the inn because found it to the the ideal location for the concerts at SPAC and downtown.
The venue is a whimsical walk through the pines.. about a 20 minute leisurely stroll.. no parking hassles... no driving.. no worries...
Brand new cruiser bikes are available to get the most out of the Saratoga experience.
The Crystal Spa, directly across the street, is the icing on the cake. Easily the best and most reasonable spa treatments, attendants and therapists that treat you like royalty.
There indeed something in the water in Saratoga Springs specially at the Washington Inn because I can't wait to go back.
