Estate at Oakcliff home swap

On the National Historic Registry since 1998, Oakcliff, in the breathtakingly beautiful Saratoga County, is the gateway to the Adirondacks with proximity to New York City by train, or a 2.5 hour drive. Estate at Oakcliff is set up on a cliff, and is said to have among "the best views on the Erie Canal" with "a spectacular view of the Mohawk River" (The Erie Canal Legacy, 2000; Historic Houses of the Hudson River Valley, 2001). Relax on a hammock at cliff side and feel the wind off the waters of the majestic Mohawk River. Or take a stroll down a long, winding dockside path and enjoy a picnic at the river's edge on a
lazy fall, leaf-blown afternoon. Cozy up with a book in the famous library where General Grant would converse with T. G. Younglove, first Speaker of the Assembly
and the home's previous owner; let the intellectual energy of the Great Library feed your soul. And speaking of intellectual energy: Oakcliff has a business center comparable to any 5-star hotel with a copy center, high-speed wireless internet, and several comfortable, quiet places in the Inn to do your work, including the President Grant Library, at the very desk President Grant sat at to do his own work over 150 years ago. Four presidents in total have stayed at Oakcliff: Presidents Grant, Hayes, Arthur, and Garfield - all former guests of the 2nd estate owner, banker/financier Truman G. Younglove. Oakcliff was originally owned and built in 1835 by Saratoga County Judge Duncan Mac Martin.
