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. […]

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.     […]

NYC Ballet at SPAC | Mariaville Lake B&B

A summer schedule in the capital region always includes an event at SPAC. I wrote a blog recently about Saratoga Performing Arts and all the great music and performances they have. One of those is the time honored tradition of several New York City Ballet performances. Every year, they have a two week residency at […]

Camp Creek 2016 | Mariaville Lake B&B

Are you ready? It’s that time again. Camp Creek time! Everyone in Mariaville knows what Camp Creek is.  Indian Lookout Country Club has hosted Camp Creek for many years (although it has also been at other venues). It’s a three day music festival, but not a crazy large one, or one with electronic music and lots […]

~Berry Season’s Pickins ~

It’s strawberry season! You should go pick some! And I don’t mean pick them out at a grocery store, because that’s boring.   We used to go to various “pick your own” spots when we were kids. I still remember the smell of the sun baked straw that lined the paths between strawberry plants. The […]

Bored? Check Out These Podcasts

When I was little riding in the car with mom, sometimes one of the worst things ever would happen. She would put on what my brother and I always called, “Talk Radio”. It was brutal. BRUTAL. It was usually NPR, and it was usually booooooring. Of course, now, one of the most precious apps I […]

B&Bs With Modern Amenities That Rival Boutique Hotels

The phrase “Bed & Breakfast” often brings to mind a very specific idea – and not something everyone is excited about. If you’re thinking busy floral bedspreads, moth-ball smelling lace curtains and your hosts hovering (and casting looks of disapproval at your late hours) – you could be wrong. If you tend to gravitate towards […]
