Saratoga Springs is home to just under 26,000 residents. The Springs is also home to some very eclectic shops, artist co-ops, historic live music venues, and some forward-thinking quirks you won't find anywhere else.
One way or another, Saratoga Springs has become a city where you can shop in local boutiques, where water fountains flow with fresh, un-bottled Geyser Spring Water, and where you can enjoy a funky nightlife in a downtown so simultaneously clean, quaint, cute, and strange it could have been designed by a child of Timothy Leary and Martha Stewart. In this artistic environment, 60 Pulitzer Prize winning authors and one Nobel Prize winner have thrived as Saratogians, people such as Bob Dylan and Arlo Guthrie have rolled through town on their way to fame, and today a whole new generation of geniuses, artists, musicians, and other brilliant Saratogians have got their mojo working.
Apartments for rent in Saratoga Springs range from $600 studio apartments to $1,000 penthouse lofts, to condos and upscale apartments that can cost more than $3,000 a month. Of course, when you pay this much, you don't just get an apartment on the second floor... you get an apartment rental that is the second floor, all 2,000 square feet of it. So, you can see that rental properties come in all shapes and sizes and prices, and that's a lot to consider.
What’s even more difficult, however, is choosing between all the amazing neighborhoods in this little city. You can live by the lake, by the amazing Spa State Park, in the popular downtown neighborhood, next door to the racetrack, or in a cul-de-sac neighborhood near the golf course.
Just grazing the surface now, but alas, it's time for this guide to end. Good luck on your apartment hunt in the beautiful Saratoga Springs!
Finding an apartment in Saratoga Springs that accepts your pet may not be easy, but it’s very possible. Keep in mind, most of the time you’ll have to pay a premium for bringing your dog along in your new apartment. Some apartments require you to pay monthly pet rent, others will ask for a non-refundable pet fee or a refundable pet deposit.
While landlords and property management companies have varying pet policies, most of them limit the number of dogs you can bring to your apartment and include breed and weight restrictions.
If your pet falls under some of the restrictions outlined in the pet policy, it’s still worth asking the landlord if they can make an exception for your dog. Preparing a pet resume ahead of time could help you build the case for your furry friend. Make sure to include information on behavioral training your dog went through over the years and proof of vaccinations. If you can, include references from your former landlord and/or neighbors.
