Country Life Bed and Breakfast in Saratoga Springs, NY
Today, I'm thinking about the Adirondack Mountains and the small communities that offer bed and breakfasts travelers an escape from the Summer heat. Just three hours from New York City, Saratoga Springs is located in the the southern foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. The city is a top vacation destination, known most for its healing hot springs and world renowned Thoroughbred track. Visitors can enjoy mountains, culture and theater as Saratoga Springs is the Summer home to the New York City Ballet and The Philadelphia Orchestra.
The hosts of Country Life Bed and Breakfast in an 1820's farmhouse offer travelers views of the scenic hills of Washington County and is gateway to the Adirondacks.
The bed and breakfasts offers a full, home-cooked breakfast featuring a fruit course and either stuffed french toast with cinnamon syrup or their signature dish of baked fresh fruit (from their garden) on cinnamon toast.
Stroll around the pastures or through the pine woods alongside the creek. Splash in our natural swimming hole, twin waterfalls and a rock slide. A bridge across the stream leads to 30 acres of old woodlands filled with trails and wildlife. Relax and picnic by the waterfalls.
