Where the Saratoga Inn stands today was a vacant lot for a long time. Mr. Primavera thought he might build a store or a garage on the site so he stored building materials there that some residents can remember playing on as children. A Chevron Station and garage was on the lot circa 1960.

The Inn opened as the "Harrison House" in May, 1994. It was renamed the "Saratoga Inn" a few years later. Jim and Jenny Pensiero took over the Inn in 2008. Although the Inn has an 201 Cascade Avenue address, it anchors the corner of Cascade Avenue and Second Street.
