Babymoon: A Special Package

Babymoons are all the rage, and with good reason. Once your little bundle of joy comes along, you’ll be sticking close to home for awhile. Your wild nights will still be wild but in a completely different way! It’s a great time to consider having a little get-away. Pamper yourselves and enjoy the solitude of […]

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. […]

Semi Staycation at Mariaville Lake B&B

Summer is upon us! Of course, with summer comes heat. With that, pavement smolders, the air gets thick and the city seems claustrophobic. People are beginning to plan their vacations (read: escapes) to simple or extravagant locations. But what if you don’t have the money or that extremely valuable commodity: the time. Still, maybe you’ve had a hard […]

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 […]
