Based on the passing of time, I would guess that the College Inn up by Saratoga is no longer there.

I used to go there a bunch of times, but I can't remember how I got there driving up the Northway.

Who can shed some light on the place? Anyone else out there with fond memories of the great College Inn??

The College Inn closed in ,I believe the late '60s or 1970.There was a small fire at one time and it was eventually tore down.Gerard King was the manager or owner.I think he has passed.Riley's Lake House,which was a ways out behind it has also been tore down and an upscale housing development built.I think that Bill Parcells has a house there.I never went there because I was in the Marine Corps but I knew people who went there.

Thanks.

I think my last time there was in the winter of 1969-70.

Wow, a fire, a tear-down and an upscale housing development. Makes me feel melancholy.

Those people will never know how much fun was had in their area, such great bands, etc.

Went to the college inn many times as I rode with one of The Sundowers who played in the room on the left. I thought the owner was Joe King, I remember his daughter Marykate. I was saddened when I heard about the fire back then. Wasn't The Rafters down the same road? It was off exit 14 of the Northway

The band I was in, The Misfits performed at the College Inn many times. We were a local rock band from the Ballston Spa-Burnt Hills area. The years from 1965-1968 and I also played in a couple other bands that performed there 1969-1970. The Misfits played both the main stage big room and many times in the Date Room. We often played alongside the Sundowners on the bill. Joe & Gerard King were the owners. The memories are so very cherished !
