“A Delightful Surprise”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

We were on our way back from a wedding in the Adirondacks and decided to break the trip up with a stop in Saratoga Springs. I booked a room at the Batchellar Mansion based on reviews and their website and hoped for the best. My husband and I could not have been happier or more impressed with everything about the place! We stayed in "Catherine's Room", which was beautifully appointed with period furniture, a comfy king size bed and all the modern conveniences. The common areas were painstakingly restored to their original splendor and yet felt comfortable for guests to wander through or lounge around. Dan and his staff were very knowledgable about the history of the building and the Batchellar family and were always willing to to answer questions as well as offer advice about the area. Breakfast was wonderful! This was our first time at this property but I know it won't be our last...and I have already recommended it to a friend. A totally lovely experience!

Room Tip: We stayed in "Catherine's room" which was pricier but we toured almost all of the othe...

This mansion is a beauty sitting just off Broad Street in the heart of Saratoga. It is a B&B with 9 beautifully furnished rooms in 3 different sizes. All have TVs & mini-fridges. The first floor is a large living room, library and dining room where guests enjoy quiet, have breakfast and soak in the history. Everywhere you look you see period furnishings, art and treasures. Outside the backyard is spacious and isolated from the street. We had our daughter's wedding there and it could not have been more perfect. The staff is great, the place is spotless and it is a do not miss in upstate New York.

Room Tip: Standard rooms are the smallest.

As I have stated in other reviews we enjoy the inns and smaller places. The offer history and buildings with "feelings" that you can not find at the modern box store hotel/motel. I knew when I saw the Batcheller Mansion online that this was going to be a fabulous experience. George Batcheller is not a name that comes to mind when we think of great Americans but if you look into the history of what this man did in his lifetime he should have a star on the walk of fame. That is a story that I could go on for hours about but this is about his mansion that came so very close to the wrecking ball. It has been brought back to it's heyday condition and even boasts a great deal of the original furnishings. Again hours to tell all that there is but Dan and his staff are a wealth of knowledge about the mansion. This is a truly beautiful restoration that offers well done sleeping rooms and some of the most beautiful public areas that I have ever seen. If you are looking for a fabulous place to stay in the Saratoga area with a wealth of history this is the place to stay

Room Tip: Across the street from Congress Park and within walking distance of everything in town (half a block...

This is a fantastic B&B. The only drawback is that they were doing a lot of painting while we were there so there was lots of equipment around both outside and inside. Both the breakfast and the room were fantastic!

We rented the mansion for the weekend of our wedding. Our bridal party and families stayed in the inn's nine rooms with us and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Great pictures, great breakfast, and a great way to all be together in our own Victorian mansion! Can't wait to visit again for our anniversary. :)

Room Tip: If you can, I would choose a superior or deluxe room; the standard rooms are pretty small (but still...

We stayed here for one evening. The place is just beautiful. Heather was very pleasant and gave us a nice tour and history if the place. Our room was very nice and it was very clean. It is in a great location close to downtown and right across from a great park. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

This was our first trip to The Batcheller Mansion, and it wont be our last. Stunning 19th century architecture, woodworking and furnishings. First rate accommodations and dining. The location is convenient to all downtown shops, restaurants. Just beware the rates skyrocket in the prime racing season, so plan your trip accordingly. you wont regret it.

Room Tip: Stayed one night in standard room, and one in deluxe room. either one is a good deal.

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
