Holidays, Holidays … the good, the bad and the ugly.

Many people spend the holidays with family – if you are fortunate enough to have the time and money to travel, or live close enough to pop in. For many families, holidays are a big to-do with a lot of time and money spent on the festivities. For others, it’s a more low-key event. Either […]

Cozy Fall Breakfast Recipies

This time of year always makes me start craving warm, gooey, softly spiced foods. Mariaville Lake B&B knows a thing or two when it comes to delicious recipes, and also seasonal foods. We make a huge effort here to source local ingredients – not because it’s trendy, but because Lorrie has always worked that way. […]

Waking Up Is Hard To Do!

Autumn is a wonderful time of year. It’s cooled off a little bit you’re not sweating an hour into the day and the colors are vibrant. I waxed poetic about fall last week so I’ll spare you this time. Let’s talk about one of the drawbacks. The dark. It’s darker in the morning which makes […]

Autumn is the best!

Summer is wonderful. It’s warm, it’s bright, it reminds you life is worth living. There are outdoor fairs, festivals and music concerts. And swimming and ice cream and fresh produce. I’m always a little sad when it comes to a close – but Autumn makes is a little easier. The quality of light changes, the […]

Thatcher Park – Helderberg Escarpment

One of my favorite places in the area to visit and hike  is Thacher Park. The stunning Helderberg Escarpment is one of the most fossil rich formations in the US (can you believe that?). You can see the Green Mountains in Vermont from the top, as well as panoramic views of the lower lands.     […]

Indian Summer | Maraville Lake B&B

The transition between Summer and Autumn is always an interesting one. Part of you is still up for the long days of summer with hot hikes and cool pools, and part of you is craving the days when you cozy up on the couch in a big sweater with a good book. The greenery on hikes […]

White Water Rafting |Mariaville Lake B&B

If you like roller-coasters or water slides or nature or general fun, you should definitely think about going on a rafting trip. I went on my first one last weekend and I was definitely anxious about it but it was such a blast! Depending on the river, you could go through some serious rapids or […]

Diatomaceous Earth! What is it good for? Absolutely Everything?

Diatomeceous earth. Just saying it is fun. But what the hell is it? And what do you do with it? Diatomeceous earth is a white, crumbly substance that is made from some interesting material. It’s basically crushed up diatoms. Duh. Okay, uhm, what are diotams? They are a type of phytoplankton – algae to be […]

Howe Caverns |Mariaville Lake B&B

I would just LOVE to go spelunking. Or, even better, discover a cave and explore it by lantern light! That isn’t exactly on my agenda this week, but I did go and take a cavern tour. One of my favorite cavern tours (yeah, I’ve done a few) is just 30 minutes from Mariaville Lake B&B. […]
