#7 of 13 B&Bs / Inns in Saratoga Springs
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.

We were walking in the neighborhood during a visit to Saratoga. We entered the Inn during the AM to ask about room rates and availability for our next visit to Saratoga. . We were masked and considered this an appropriate visit at 11AM. The staff person on duty would not answer any questions and told us if we were not guests we should leave immediately, at which she point she threw us out.. We have visited many inns for many years and have never experienced a ruder innkeeper! How is this person in the hospitality business?

Not my experience. The room (McKinley) was small, hot and stuffy. No fan and no screens on the windows, so impossible to open them for fresh air without letting mosquitos in. Blinds didn't shut all the way and no curtains. It was so bright in the room due to the floodlights on the lawn below that it was like we had a lamp turned on in our room all night long. My "nightstand" was a dorm fridge. It's motor kicked on and off every 15 minutes all night long. Got zero sleep. I didn't experience a "warm" feeling here at all. More like a million rules and feeling like we were in trouble for something before we even got to our room. Add to that: threadbare washcloths; thin, sandpaper toilet paper and lots of chipped paint. Also, could have opened our locked door with a butter knife (see attached photo). Beautiful property and house (if you're into Victorian), but won't be back.

The property was absolutely breathtaking, and Martha was a warm, friendly, knowledgeable about the history of the mansion and an overall informative inn keeper. We stayed in the Catherine suite, and it was spacious, quiet and comfortable.

Everything about this property is beautiful. If your looking to say in an period mansion this is the place for you. Rooms are large clean comfortable and beautifully decorated with antiques. The people are warm and friendly. Decorated perfectly to celabrate the begining of the fall season. Breakfast was delicious and freshly prepared. Lots to do within walking distance.

This inn is slightly more expensive (although they do have varied rates for each of the 9 rooms), but it is well worth it! The mansion and the grounds are beautiful, and the faculty are very friendly and accommodating. The interior is amazing, and the entire first floor (except for the kitchen and office) are common rooms you can access at any time. Plus, there are two gorgeous and spacious porches and a backyard patio for guests. But the absolute best thing about this inn for me was the breakfast. I’ve stayed twice, once before covid and recently during covid and their free breakfast is the BEST I have ever had at a hotel or B&B. They provide a number of options and everything is freshly made. Plus, as a vegetarian, the owner was incredibly accommodating and made me eggs with veggies specially. They offer coffee, tea, juices, muffins and croissants, as well as a number of main dishes such as egg sandwiches, French toast, and fried or scrambled eggs. All were delicious, especially the homemade strawberry jam. While most hotels are skimping on breakfast due to covid, this inn actually provided us with a menu to select from, creating each guests individual meal! Plus, they serve it in sanitary take-out containers but also provide you with silverware and dish ware that you have the option of using. I’ve never eaten a better breakfast at a restaurant! The inn has an interesting history, I suggest visiting the inn and finding out firsthand. It’s worth it!
