About The Inn

Get out of town and stay at the lake! Mariaville Lake Bed & Breakfast, a 5 guestroom upstate New York  Inn with a great vibe. Minutes from I-88 and I-90 and near Schenectady, Albany and Saratoga, Mariaville Lake is just a 2½ hour drive from New York City.



Mariaville Lake B & B is more than lakeside lodging; it’s an experience!  Casual yet elegant, laid back yet with an amazing attention to detail,  our 5 guestrooms and 2 guest cottages are immaculate, comfortable, and beautifully furnished. In-Room Massages are available with advance notice. We have spacious common rooms exclusively for B&B guests, including the Living Room with a fire to read, relax, or make merry. Our glassed in porch embraces the lake and sky even in inclement weather. Spend evenings by the fire year round – in summer and fall at the fire pit by the lake and in the winter and spring by our wood-burning fireplace in the Living Room. Check out “The Area’ for great restaurants and things to do. Mariaville has one traffic light yet we are an active community.  Your stay includes free use of private dock, 2 kayaks and canoe, a hand built covered swing, picnic table, and many acres of grounds to enjoy. Lots of great hiking and biking nearby.  Mariaville Lake is very popular with bicyclists. Cycling is great with level rides on the Mohawk Hudson Bike Trail or more challenging hills near Mariaville Lake.  Either way, we’ll stow your bikes safely in our rec shed.

The ice fishing  contests and chili cook off are two popular events around the lake. We have lodging for area festivals such as Old Songs and the Capital Region Apple and Wine Festival, both held at Altamont Fairgrounds. Saratoga B&Bs are expensive so staying here is affordable with only a 45 minute ride to Saratoga Race Track and the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, known as SPAC. Stay here when Dave Matthews plays. Check out The Area for things to do, itinerary suggestions, local events, and great restaurants.

Your innkeepers, Rick and Lorrie provide warm, attentive hospitality, interesting suggestions for the area, (rich in local history), and a full candlelight breakfast.  Local ingredients are used whenever possible, and the coffee is yummy, organic, and fair trade. Vegan or gluten free is no problem as long as we know ahead of time.

Coming to the area on business and tired of the same cold hotel room?  We can provide you with an oasis a short drive from Schenectady. WiFi is available and free.
