We had the fantastic experience of staying at the newly refurbished Treehouse Villas at Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa shortly after they reopened in 2009. The villas were perfectly appointed with a full kitchen, two bathrooms and three bedrooms, as well as a sleeper sofa. Additionally, we added a last minute night at Saratoga Springs proper when we extended our trip. Nothing was available for the Treehouses, so we reserved a deluxe studio. Upon check-in, we were upgraded to a 2-bedroom villa! Needless to say, we enjoyed the deluxe accommodations in both locations. Let me apologize in advance for the lack of visuals for Saratoga. This was the trip when we (SADLY!!) lost a camera. I suppose that just means we’ll need to book a stay at this deluxe villa resort again!

With its expansive property, there are several recreation options at Saratoga Springs! Five pools are sprinkled throughout the resort including two features pools: The Paddock Pool and High Rock Spring Pool.
Quiet pools and hot tubs are located at the Congress Park and Grandstand areas, as well as the Treehouse Villas.
Playgrounds and barbecues are located throughout the resort, as well as a tennis court near the Carriage House. Bike, surrey bike and other recreational rentals are located at Horsing Around Rentals located at High Rock Spring pool. You can also enjoy nightly marshmallow roasts, games in community hall or fishing excursions.
Win, Place or Show arcade is also located near the High Rock Spring pool.
Although the visual memories are few, we really enjoyed our stay at Saratoga and the Treehouse! This is a nice option off the beaten path and a little more low key than the resorts closer to the parks. A great place to relax on your down day or after the parks!
