The Brunswick at Saratoga: Soft Bed, Safe Haven for Hall of Fame Kentucky Derby Revelers

March 10, 2018 by Brunswick B&B

 The First Saturday in May is a near-holy day to we Saratogians, as we join with our kindred spirits in horse racing to celebrate the first leg of the Triple Crown:  the Kentucky Derby.

If you’re a fan of horse racing, you’ll celebrate the day with a party of some kind:  you may have a few friends over.  You may go to your local OTB parlor, to be among kindred-wagerers and pick up some tips.

 Or, even though it’s only the 10th of March, you may be picking out your big hat and best bow tie already–prepping almost two months out for the grand Kentucky Derby Party at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame–right here, in Saratoga.  And The Brunswick at Saratoga Bed & Breakfast?  Why, we’re just 1/10 of a mile–not even a furlong–from the Racing Museum.

(We have a special relationship with the Museum and Hall of Fame:  our own Tom Amello is a lifelong horse racing analyst, and in fact will be on the Hall of Fame stage just one week before the Derby, to analyze the race and contenders for horse racing fans.  We don’t just own a B&B in this community–we’re part of the community.)

Drink that in:  the Museum’s party commences at 3:30PM on Saturday, May 5th.  You can decide, now, to stay with us for that night–or two–and not only get the deep-dish discount–but thereby assure also your own safety, and that of your date and others on the roads.

So here’s our offer to you who plan to celebrate Kentucky Derby 2018 with the wonderful folks at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame:

*  25% discount for a two-night stay, including two delicious three-course breakfasts
*  10% discount for a one-night stay, including a delicious three-course breakfast

Then–don’t use the reservations page, call us directly at (518) 584-6751 to check availability of your desired room, and book it.
 Both the Hall of Fame folks and we want you to have a wonderful, fun, memorable Kentucky Derby Day–and celebrating at the Museum and Hall of Fame is the next-best-thing to being at Churchill Downs.
So please–take us up on our extraordinary offer.  Come, stay with us.  Park your car here when you check in–and then, simply walk less-than-a-furlong to the party.  After the roses are presented in the winner’s circle in Louisville, walk back and enjoy a cup of coffee.  Grab the ear of our Resident Racing Analyst (Tom), and spend the evening on our beautiful porch, reveling in the wonder of horse racing with a man who’s been a racing insider for over 30 years.  Not only is this the safest way to celebrate the Kentucky Derby–it’s the way to add warm memories; make new friends and get a good night’s sleep.
Thank you for considering the Brunswick at Saratoga, and celebrating the Kentucky Derby with us.  We’re eager to meet you, and Talk Horse.

March 9, 2018 by Brunswick B&B
