Stayed here while visiting Skidmore. The Springwater B&B has the feel of an antique house and all the amenities of new construction (like good, quiet climate control). It has hard wood floors in the spacious rooms, BIG bathrooms with high-tech walk-in showers (in our room), lots of window light, antique furniture, etc. I appreciate the refined, sparse decorating (not auntie’s frilly B&B). I stayed in the Hathorn room, which had a king bed and a “daybed” which was perfect for my 16 year old. It also had a gas fireplace and second-story porch/balcony with chairs. While it was still too cold to use the balcony, I imagine it would be fun in warmer weather. The ground level deck/veranda has a gathering area and a wood-burning fireplace. The breakfast was outstanding (fresh muffins, asparagus omelet, bacon, hash browns) and the staff could not have been more accommodating. The B&B does not have a view, but it is an easy walk to the main street of Saratoga Springs. Off season price was truly reasonable - worth every penny!
