In our travels, the Amello family preferred a Bed & Breakfast experience to big box hotels. We fondly remember and appreciate our many hosts. Four years ago, Kate committed to achieving a long-held goal of becoming an owner/operator Innkeeper. She chose to pursue that goal in the city of Saratoga Springs, NY. The official journey began in 2012. In April of 2016 we closed a contract to purchase the Brunswick at Saratoga Bed and Breakfast.
Kate Amello, an HR professional, has been preparing for life as owner-operator of a B&B for several years. Kate holds certification from Cornell University in Hotel and Restaurant Management. Currently enrolled at SCCC, Kate will earn a degree in Culinary Arts. Kate gained hands-on experience as an Innkeeper at the famous Batcheller Mansion in Saratoga Springs, NY. Under Kate’s stewardship, Batcheller Mansion’s TripAdvisor ranking rose from 5th to 3rd among Saratoga Bed & Breakfasts. Kate possesses vision and strong habits of attention to detail. She has the skill set required to establish and maintain the highest standards of hospitality at the Brunswick at Saratoga Bed & Breakfast.
Tom, Kate’s dad, retired from a career in education in July 2010. In younger days, he owned a small upstate restaurant with wife Renee. Tom also brings a long term association with the Saratoga racing season as handicapper and presenter for, among others, the New York Racing Association. For over 20 years, Tom produced and hosted original programming for Capital District Off-Track Betting’s television network. Tom’s skills are grounded in years of successful engagement with a wide variety of audiences in the public and private sector.
Renee, wife and mother, is a retired health care professional. After graduating from nursing school, Renee embarked upon a career in nursing, working in major hospitals in the greater Boston area. Over time she moved to nursing positions in geriatrics with the Little Sisters of the Poor and, ultimately into pediatrics in a local practice. Renee has always found joy in cooking for family and friends. She and Kate bring their special breakfast touch to the Brunswick at Saratoga Bed and Breakfast.
Guest Comments About Our Saratoga Bed and Breakfast & Innkeepers
“It is almost three weeks since graduation and we’re still talking about what a wonderful time we had. The truth is, you and your wonderful Bed and Breakfast made the weekend the success it was (the weather didn’t hurt either!) We all felt so “at home” from the moment we arrived. From the location, lovely rooms, fabulous breakfasts, and Java herself, it was so perfect. On top of all of that, the two of you are so gracious and caring. It was a weekend we will all fondly remember for years to come. Thank you for your part in all of it.”
