We spent 3 nights at The Lewis House in the Blue Room . We had a wonderful time. Madison served a delicious breakfast and we had great conversation with Preston Lewis and the other guests. Location is great for walking around Ballston Spa and enjoying the restaurants. Also close to Saratoga Springs. We will definitely stay here again.

We (our family) have been going to Saratoga for the past several years for our New Years Eve. This year we were traveling with our 21 month old granddaughter as well.

My husband and I stumbled upon The Lewis House 10 years ago and have been going back every year on Labor Day weekend. We include family now and take over the entire house. Preston Lewis is amazing...part of our family. Love his hospitality, breakfasts and wonderful stories. We would not stay anywhere else.

We stayed at Lewis House over the 4th of July. The Garden room suite was an entire apartment. The Breakfasts were so plentiful we did not need lunch. We biked on nearby bike paths and were allowed to leave our bikes on the back porch. We asked about the spa in Saratoga and the owner called for us immediately and...

The charm and beauty of this B & B are beyond compare. My husband and I decided to stay local for our anniversary and were delighted with the room, the house, the gardens, excellent breakfasts and personal touches, but mostly with the exceptional host Preston. He is as kind as he is humble. We loved the conversations that accompanied breakfast...

My Fiancee and I had a wonderful stay in the Burgundy Room. This was a short notice decision and have to thank Preston and lovely wife for the pleasant stay.

Stayed at the Lewis house for my birthday weekend with my fiancee. We loved it here. The burgundy room was great. Very romantic with a fire place and an old fashioned bath tub for two.

On our way to Newport Center, VT, we spent two nights at the Lewis House. We called about a half hour before our arrival and were told by Preston that our keys would be in the box waiting for us. Coincidentally, when we arrived Preston was just leaving the house as we were coming in. He asked if we need...

This was by far one of the most wonderful places to stay. My boyfriend and I recently went up to Saratoga to see the Farmaid concert.
