As a child, Yaddo was like my backyard. I almost took it for granted. Now that I'm older and hopefully wiser, I look back on my childhood as magical -- and Yaddo Gardens was a big part of it. There's lots of history here -- and a few ghost stories as well.

We really enjoyed our visit to Yaddo Gardens. The fountains and roses were beautiful. We took a nice quiet walk, lingered on a bench, and admired the beauty of the gardens. As a bonus, parking is free! We were happy that this was on our list of things to do while we were visiting Saratoga.
Lovely and tranquil as long as you ignore the traffic sounds from the nearby highway. As the previous writer says, it is better to read about the gardens prior to visiting.
The garden had been put to bed and the water features had been drained. Nonetheless the structure was very visible and the setting was glorious. If you're a garden lover, you'll appreciate it in every season. Traffic noise was the only downside.
We roamed the rose and rock gardens for about 90 minutes in amazement. Wish the species had been labeled for easier identification. Nice place for a quiet picnic on the lawn.
Perhaps because I visitd in mid-October, the gardens didn't show at their best. The grounds look lovely, but not so many roses this time of year, although a woman was there pruning. There are also Rock Gardens, whic hI wasn't able to find. Will try it in the spring or summer.
