The Yaddo has two parts- a public garden and a private artist residence. The entrance is right off the northway which is convenient but does take away from the ambiance a little as you can hear the traffic from the highway while wandering the garden....More

If you have time to spare in Saratoga Springs this writers retreat is worth swinging into to see the fountain and rose gardens. It wont take long but has wonderful back drops for a photo shoot. Its a place to sit and reflect.

This may have some historic significance, but it's a bore. It's not a garden on par with any of the botanic gardens I have ever visited elsewhere in the Northeast (as other contributors agree). It's sort of dumpy, overrun, hardly any flower beds. Maybe it's...More

What to say about this. The grounds are beautiful. Sadly the roses were not yet in bloom during my visit, but I can imagine they are spectacular. I can say that all the "Do Not Enter" signs are a little intimidating and you get the...More

Yaddoo- the pull in is accessible it's right off the exit for the Northway (I-87) exit 14 towards Saratoga. You pull in the fenced garden and just roll the windows down and go slow, it's patrolled and video surveillanced. When you get to the end,...More
