We loved staying at Rick and Lorrie's bed and breakfast from July 20-22. They were probably the most congenial hosts we've ever had--very welcoming, friendly, helpful, yet respectful of our privacy. I loved the smell, look, and feel of the old house, including the quaint steps leading upstairs, which were green and painted with cityscapes. Our room (the Lakeview room) was beautiful with wonderful views of the lake, as advertised. Breakfasts, made by Lorrie, were delicious, inventive, and featured fresh herbs from her garden and edible flowers. The inn's private dock overlooking Mariaville Lake was is a great place to sit and have a meditative morning before you begin your day--much tranquility and peace there. We also had a great dinner in Schenectady at Aperitivo, which the hosts recommended--it's "high end" but delicious and worth the price. Lastly, we brought our bikes, and Rick very kindly accommodated us by letting us store them in his shed. We highly recommend this B&B and will definitely consider coming back!

My husband, son and I stayed at the cottage for a long weekend while we collected our daughter from a camp at Union college. It was a quick commute and a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of a city. The lake is located across a street but hardly a car went by even on the weekend. And to our utmost surprise the lake is quiet with little jet ski or motor boat noise. The cottage was perfect for our family of 4 and we even had 2 friends stay at the main house but join us for a picnic dinner and camp fire.Rick was friendly and available to answer our every question. We took his advice and did both the waterfall hike and beaver damn walk. Both wonderful.He also stocked our fridge with organic goodies to start our day. Very welcome after a long drive up from northern virginia. Thank you Rick and have a great end of summer! The Dietrich's (July 2014)

A year ago August my family spent time at this wonderful Bed and Breakfast to celebrate Life and gather the 4 generations coming from 6 states! It was a great reunion with superb rooms each so special in their unique way and excellent food and service by our "hosts superior" ! The cottage worked beautifully for the youngest family with 3 little ones and we even had our 91 year old MOM climbing the stairs and enjoying herself immensely. From the outdoor activities to the indoor birthday party around the big dining room table and board games, our 4 days were perfect! My grandson even caught his 1st fish! Thank you again, Rick and Lorrie for giving us this opportunity to find the "perfect place"! Cindy

Perfect balance of accommodating our dietary and other requests while leaving us privacy. Both Rick and Lorrie are good listeners. Breakfast was delicious. No negatives at all during our 3 night stay June 2014.

My partner and I had a great stay at Mariaville Lake Bed and Breakfast! Rick and Lorrie were warm and welcoming and really made us feel at home. We stayed in the Vineyard room, which has a lovely view of the lake and a very comfortable bed. The home is lovely. It dates back to the 1850's and has gorgeous period details, yet is so comfortable that we spent hours simply sitting by the fire and reading in the downstairs parlor. Last but not least, Lorrie's cooking is out of this world good, and both she and Rick were very responsive to our food preferences--when you go, make sure to ask Lorrie for her gluten-free pancakes with apples for breakfast!

A last road trip with my pregnant daughter. This was an amazing way to spend our time together. Service was excellent and cheerful, we felt completely at home, and we enjoyed every minute of our breakfasts. This wonderful old house will see me again!

The location of the Mariaville Bed and Breakfast was centrally located in New York and allowed for a nice visit with my old college roommates. The three of us enjoyed Lorrie and Rick's friendly hospitality while we caught up on old times. The rooms, the house and the lake were absolutely beautiful. We took advantage of the great weather by hiking, kayaking, relaxing by the lakeside as well as sitting by a fire at night. Both mornings breakfast was a real treat and so nicely presented. Coffee, tea and snacks were available at all times. Thank you for such a great visit. Maybe in the winter I will come back with my snow shoes!

We finally used our living social voucher and made our way to Mariaville, NY. Driving up to the house in the dark is a bit eerily but in the light of the morning it was beautiful. We did not have anything planned to while we were there except to relax! That is what we did. We are definitely planning on a return trip in the fall.

This was a cute B & B. The rooms were neat and clean and Rick was a great host - very friendly, helpful and full of knowledge! Didn't see Lorrie until the last day at breakfast and we were wondering who she was since she was suddenly there with no introduction. Kitchen help was fabulous! Would have been nice if they did a turn-down service as in other B&B, rather than leaving a note to request it.

Thank you for your stay! Lorrie is the branch manager at our local library so she isn’t always around to chat with guests. As innkeepers, we value your privacy and make it our policy never to enter a guest room unless requested. Thank you, we too love our kitchen help!

Rick was very friendly and informative. The room was nice, but the water has a bit of a sulfur smell. The first breakfast, apple cinnamon stuffed pancakes was very good. The second breakfast, rosemary potato frittata was not to my liking.
Respuesta del propietario
Thank you for your review. There is a slight sulfur smell in our water. We are in the country and have a well. Upstate NY is known for its sulfur baths (Saratoga Springs, Richfield Springs). We find that people coming from city water notice it more, although they don’t smell the chlorine in their own water. Although our Rosemary Potato Frittata is a favorite among guests we would have been happy to offer you another selection had we known.

Friendly hosts, beautiful decor, delicious breakfasts and comfortable bed! Rick lit a fire in the living room fireplace for us our first night. Had place to ourselves as we were there 2 nights on a Sunday and Monday. Good recommendation for dinner and for hike to a huge beaver dam! Suggestion-Should have off-season rates as we were unable to use outdoors and lake access due to being there in December. Still, loved it and plan to go back in warmer season! Lee and Dan

An absolutely beautiful place to stay! Very peaceful and elegant! Extremely immaculate! The breakfast served was out of this world! Can't wait to go back! :)

Nice neat updated old home. Owners very cordial and informative. Only complaints are: unavailability of restaurants for dinner on Monday and/or Tuesday & TV (Only one in the building to service 5 rooms) needs clearer instructions to us since satellite and most folks have hard wired sets. We did enjoy the property but it would have been more fun in summer due to the proximity of the lake and the available canoe and kyack.

Thank you for your review. We would like to clear up a few of the comments. As far as dining is concerned, there are at least a dozen restaurants within a 10-15 minute drive that are open 7 days a week. We know where they are, just ask. We have 3 televisions in our 5 room B&B. Two are in guest rooms and one is in our den. However, we find that guests hardly ever watch television. They are boating, hiking, skiing and enjoying the fireplace or exploring the area. The older generation sometimes do. So we have made the remote very simple to use. Just press the on button and use the channel and volume buttons to choose your program and adjust the volume. Pressing the Guide button will tell you what programs are on. As far as the time of year that you chose to come...can't help you there except to encourage you to come when you want to have more of the fun you like.

A most unexpected delight!!! The House, our hosts, our room, the breakfasts..., an experience and memories we'll remember and cherish. I initially had "reservations" regarding the price but they were quickly dispelled. There is fun to be found in the house... The smell of home cooked, gourmet breakfasts lures you out of your room and down the stairs to the dining room or the enclosed porch, tables set with candles lit and fresh fruit. It may be difficult to drag yourself out of an incredibly comfortable bed but you will be rewarded for your effort. Out front there are places to sit, relax and look out on the lake. We visited Howe Cavern and Hyde Hall and its covered bridge. We brought our bikes on the trip and rode a portion of the Mohawk Towpath paved trail. And do go see the beaver "lodge" You can be a voracious tourist or "veg" in a chair, it's a great place to do either!!

Having stayed in a few Bed and Breakfasts in my day, Mariaville Lake B&B was by far the nicest! The rooms were all beautiful with private baths, spacious, and very clean. Rick, the owner, was also very personable, and helpful finding local things to do. The breakfasts were also excellent- not your usual muffins, yogurt and granola. The mattresses were very good, and I could not get over how quiet the place was- on our 2nd night there were a total of 5 couples ( including Rick and his wife) and you would have thought you had the place to yourself once you were in your room. I, personally found it a bit on the pricey side if we had not been using a groupon deal, especially for the very rural location, though if there are off season rates, I would certainly consider it again for a relaxing mid winter getaway.

The Inn is a wonderful building in a super setting. Rick and Lorrie were great hosts, their dining recommendations were good as were their suggested excursions, particularly the walk to the beaver dam.

I met my sister at this B&B for a little retreat. The house was quiet, the setting beautiful and the food delicious. Round the clock coffee keeps a girl like me happy :). We stayed in the suite and found it to be both spacious and cozy. We actually spent a day crafting and the table inside was perfect. A little fridge, coffeemaker, TV all included. The futon was...a futon and worked just fine for me. The local restaurants were surprisingly yummy and nothing was too far. All in all a very pleasant experience. Would definitely return.

Our our way to Vermont from albany we had to find a place near the airport for one night and we found Mariaville lake b and b on the Internet. What a wonderful find, Rick was very hospitable and accommodating and the inn was beautiful. Best mix of vintage and modern, the latter greatly appreciated in the wonderfully redone bathroom. We stayed in the colonial room and it had a beautiful view of the lake and it was very peaceful.. Highly recommend for your first night in upstate ny. Linda

As newcomers to the B and B scene, we couldn't be happier with our experience at Mariaville Bed and Breakfast. Our hosts were gracious and knowledgable about the area. The Vinyard room was quaint, comfortable and immaculate! The food was supurb! Can't wait for another go around!

We booked a week stay at the carriage house. It was separate from the main house. It gave us privacy and relaxation that we were looking for. The carriage house was in good condition and the gas fire place was a nice touch. The views of the lake from the second floor balcony were beautiful. A good place to go and just get away from all the hustle and bustle of the city.

My girls friends and I did a long weekend away in the Hudson Valley. Our stay at the Mariaville Lake B&B was outstanding and helped to make our weekend get away an excellent weekend. Would recommend it to friends and family. Breakfast included and very good. Denise Alexander

My husband and I just spent four wonderful days at this beautiful B&B. The views from our Lakeview Room were spectacular...and breakfast was always yummy (Rick is an amazing cook!). It was nice getting to know other guests while having breakfast...then going out and spending the day exploring upstate NY. There is so much to do around Mariaville...Thousand Islands, Boldt Castle, Old Stone Fort Museum, Hyde Hall, Howe Caverns, NY State Museum (a must!), Adirondack State Park...the list goes on and on....

Great place to get away. Tons of outdoor activities, yet still a great place to relax. The owners are super friendly and welcoming. (Its totally okay to eat the flower, by the way).

My wife and I have stayed at many Bed and Breakfasts and found that this was one of our most enjoyable Bed and Breakfast weekends yet! Rick and Lorrie have put their hearts into this B&B and go out of their way to make sure that their guests are comfortable. The home has many wonderful features and the owners have paid attention to so many details that set this B&B apart from others. We enjoyed our stay enough that we would go back again and woiuld recommend it to anyone looking for a great B&B. Rick and Lorrie were very gracious and accommodating hosts. Thanks for a great weekend.

I had a fantastic stay at Mariaville B and B. Rick and Lorrie were wonderful hosts. The inn is located on a beautiful Lake and they offer canoes and kayaks. The town is so quaint and peaceful. Rick was really helpful in telling us some good spots to hike and walk and dine. A great getaway in a charming, peaceful town. I can't wait to go back!!

This was my husband & I first bed & breakfast, we were a little skeptical but after this experience we cant wait to come back. Rick is awesome and the house feels welcoming. By the end of it we both felt at home. Breakfast was delicious and the area is relaxing.

We visited Howe Caverns and Saratoga Springs. We enjoyed relaxing on the property. There are plenty of seating areas to enjoy the view of the lake. Breakfast was supurb.

Great location right across the street from the lake. Boats/equipment looked old. Great breakfast, clean rooms. Loves the option to borrow books and games. My complaint is that the water did not seem to be well filtered at all. The color of water was normal but it always had soap in it, making us feel like we could not wash soap off.
Respuesta del propietario
Thanks for you review! We assure you that all our boats and equipment are in great working order and get lots of use from guests. Our water is from a country well and is not the hard chemical chlorinated city water you may be used to. It is conditioned to remove the hardness of natural minerals, which is why it feels so soft - or why it feels like you can't wash off the soap. Water for coffee is filtered through a Reverse Osmosis filtering system removing impurities and particles larger than .001 microns.

I recently made reservations here for two days. At first I was a little skeptical about the plave just because, it was my first B&B. It came out to be a very nice peaceful place. I enjoyed the breakfast and the rooms were neat! Rick was so nice in explaining everything and showing me around. The area is wonderful and the lakeview room was peaceful for me. Breakfast was delightful. You eat with everyone on the breakfast with everyone there which isnt that bad because, we made friends with the quests so it made it more comfortable to eat with them. The kayak and bike riding was fun for me. There is not much around there of resturants if you are looking you would need to drive out of the area. Me and my bf left the area and went to other towns and places to eat . Also we had a nice camp fire near the house which was great especially when it wasnt hot outside. The owners were there with us including the guests which made it really comfortable for us all to know each other and hang out. Will return in near future. Good experience for being my first time. Thanks Rick :)

Beautiful lakeside house with large formal dining room and cozy sun porch. Creative breakfasts in large portions served by friendly innkeep. Bedrooms are big with colonial-style floor to ceiling windows. We especially loved the kayaks & found the lake especially relaxing. People seem to have jetskis and go-fast boats but hardly used them while we were there.

We borrowed the rowboat steps away and saw a beautiful sunset from the middle of the lake, very memorable!

Step into a world where you can enjoy the simple things. If you want to go someplace where you don't have to think about going grocery shopping (closest "big store" is 20 mins away and totally avoidable :) or listening to highway traffic this is the place to be. Just the right balance of checking in and leave-you-to-your-own devices from the inn keepers makes it comfortable and reassuring. There are dishes provided and a microwave, and a shared fridge (unless you have one of the suites with a fridge) so you can be thrifty if you choose. The hardest part was driving around to eat, but we planned it conveniently with area hikes, wine tastings, and sight-seeing. Get out and relax!

We had an excellent time staying here. The room was immaculate, as was the rest of the house. The breakfast was delicious, I had the best puffed pancakes of my life! The owners of the house were very nice and helpful. The lake is both peaceful and beautiful! I would highly recommend Mariaville Lake Bed and Breakfast to anyone I know.

Beautiful house with very nice rooms. Beautiful large lake across the street with easy canoe and kayak access (available on site). Breakfasts were simple, yet very tasty. There are a few good places to eat and fun tourist attractions nearby (such as Howe's Caverns, the Iroquois museum, and several Eerie canal locks); however, many restaurants and attractions are closed on Monday and Tuesday. We were disappointed that the wine tasting (included in our package) was not available during our stay and nobody told us. Nevertheless, we very much enjoyed our visit!
4,2 en junio 06, 2012
The house itself was wonderful with an outstanding architecture and interior design. The owner did a wonderful job keeping the antiques furniture looking good and in a great condition. All equipment you would like is available as far as outdoor activities We enjoyed the canoe ride so very much, very romantic while there was no body on the lake which made it special for us, we also experienced the serious storm while we were on the lake paddling. It was an exciting and of course a little scary experience and luckily we got help with one of the nice neighbors and made it back to the house. The beaver dam was suggested by the landlord to visit which was our favorite part of this beautiful small town. Make sure to drive around about 10 miles radiant to see other small towns and lots of interesting architects and barns. On our way back we stopped by Secret Cavern which was an amazing natural cave, a must see. I fell in love in this trip/place and I think one of the reason was the peaceful atmospheric which leads you to feel things more and deeper. We will go back to visit..... :) Thank you Rick

Our trip unexpectedly took us into the Mariaville area looking for a place to stay. We came upon Rick & Lorrie's B&B. We were so glad we did. Rick met us at the door and instantly made us feel welcome; like part of the family. The house was beautiful! They did a great job with all the rooms. Our room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Lorrie's breakfast was fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with them. They are great new friends and fun to be around! The next day we left for another B&B 2 hours away. When we got there we could not believe how dirty it was. As we sat in our room we knew we did not want to stay. And since we enjoyed The Mariaville Lake B&B so much my wife called Rick and Lorrie and asked if they had a room available, and they did! So we drove 2 hours back and got to enjoy them and there home some more. Thanks so much for a great experience and thanks again for showing me your drum set, Rick!

Although we had some issues with checking in the hosts more than made up for it with warm hospitality, fabulously appointed rooms, beautiful views of the lake and a delicious breakfast.
2,8 en septiembre 24, 2011
Rooms were adequate with very slippery floors which were a safety factor, fireplace, but no wood provided or directions, too many signs around, some of which were related to the "elegant bedding" which proved to be plain unironed cotton. At breakfast we were never introduced to the other couple that ate with us. It was awkward having to get up to get your coffee and sweet bread which was in another room. No itemized bill was provided.
4,2 en agosto 29, 2011
Mariaville Lake Bed and Breakfast surpassed my expectations in almost every respect. The Inn is extremely well maintained, attractive, and very clean. The bathrooms have all new fixtures, the decor is charmingly Victorian (but not musty), the food is good, the innkeepers are very pleasant and helpful (but not overly intrusive), and the lovely grounds are filled with benches and picnic tables that provide ample opportunity for outdoor relaxation. I would recommend this to anyone passing through the area; it is worth the slight diversion from the main highway.
4,2 en agosto 22, 2011
This is a real nice place to stay. Beautifull surroundings, lovely home and very friendly people. I would certainly book another time!

On our pilgrimage to New England from Ohio, we find this a great stopover place. We have stayed at this fine B&B two years running during the middle of the summer and found the hosts and the facilities to be top notch! If you enjoy the water, the added benefit is being right on the lake. I enjoy fishing in the early AM and you can purchase a non-resident, one day fishing license for $15. I bring my own kayak but they have a boat you can use or you can fish from shore.
3,6 en julio 11, 2011
This inn is lovely, with absolutely beautiful rooms overlooking the lake. The public rooms are more ordinary, and the breakfast was basic...French toast, a sausage, a little fruit. Just satisfactory. But the beautiful room environment was well worth the price! I went swimming and kayaking on the lake. Quiet and peaceful place!

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Mariaville Lake B & B. This was our first B & B experience, our hosts have set the bar high! Rick and Lorrie were very upbeat and friendly. Our room and the rest of the house was immaculate. We were able to use their canoes (kayaks and a row boat also available) on the lake. Breakfast was superb, and they accommodated our gluten-free and dairy-free diet! I would definitely recommend this B & B to everyone. Very relaxing and slow paced, which is what we were looking for.

I will definitely be back! Amy, Rochester, NY

The lake setting was wonderful. We took advantage of the lawn chairs in the evenings to enjoy watching people fish the lake on the spring day. The rooms were very nicely appointed and exceptionally clean. The beds were comfortable. Breakfasts were juice, fresh fruit, tasty quiche, bacon or sausage and breads though portions were small. Lorrie and Rick were pleasant hosts, showing us the conveniences and enjoyable to chat with.

Could not have been more relaxing! Rick and Lorrie make you feel like old friends visiting for the weekend. Both lovely, well educated people who can converse on many issues and topics. I will DEFINATELY be back!!!!

We really enjoyed the charm of this B and B. You could tell Rick really loved what he was doing by his personality and by the way that the house was well preserved (collonial style door frames, fireplace, etc). My wife and I stayed in the Country Room, which was just what we needed; calm and quiet. Also, notable that the bed was really confy and that it had no food board to box me in (I'm 6'5). The lake was nice, a drive around the area is highly recommened so if you are coming from the city like we did I would very highly recommend renting a car instead of going metro/taxi both ways. Soooooo worth it to drive. Check out the links he has on his sight too. There is a cool broadway theatre just an hour away, etc.
4,4 en mayo 02, 2011
A wonderful relaxing place to stay. We prefer B&B's even if the 'event' we are attending is 10-15 miles away. You can sleep anyplace, but you go to a B&B to relax, to get away, to wander around, to have a companionable relationship with your host. Mariaville is all this and more. The rooms were great, the service was fantastic - we had questions about Union College (12 miles away) and they called the school, they called restaurants in that town, they did everything to make our stay easy on us, and fun. Breakfast in the sun room was perfect ... siting there with coffee and a book was what we needed to unwind. The day of our departure we were in no rush - our next stop was 6 hours but only 45 miles away ... they suggested we just hang out in the sun room a while. The hike on their property was a great after breakfast stroll ... to call the beaver dam large is an understatement ... and the Great Blue Heron rookery an unexpected treat. We would recommend this place to anyone.

What a great place to go for a weekend! I can't say enough good things about the innkeepers, the room or the great b'fast. The minute i walked in the door I was welcomed. The rooms (I got a tour of the house) are all wonderful; mine was very cozy. The details given to the decor make the B & B more like going home than visiting a hotel. I can't wait to go back again.

The house is in a lovely setting by the lake. I sat on the dock to read and watch the ducks. The home is beautifully decorated, and I was warmly welcomed as a single guest.

Beautiful home, lovely grounds, excellent hosts who went above and beyond to ensure our stay was wonderful. So relaxing sitting by the lake with morning coffee, seeing and hearing birds, and watching fish jumping in the lake. A perfect quiet rural retreat not far from the Interstate, Schenectady, Albany. So glad we found this treasure to stay in when we come to visit family in the city. Looking forward to staying longer next time, in the Eagle suite, taking a canoe out on the lake, and hiking the nature trails.

We have stayed at many B&Bs in the Northeast and rate this one tops - the innkeepers are charming and accomodating - genuinely friendly and always there with a smile. The rooms are beautiful, clean, in top condition. The Inn itself is a gorgeous, historic home right on Lake Mariaville. The inkeepers also have a nice piece of property nearby for great hikes and wildlife viewing. A great retreat!

Beautiful, clean rooms, gracious hosts. The breakfast we had was delicious-love that bread. It was so quiet at night and lovely with all the stars.

Warm, accommodating guests. Clean and well priced. Beautiful view and canoeing on the lake. One of the best places I've stumbled on in years.

Good location - right on lake. Nice people. Breakfast ok, but not outstanding like many B&Bs. Lovely comfortable rooms with great details.
