  • Introduction

    Welcome to 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.

    As soon as you drive into Mariaville with its one traffic light and picturesque lake, you can begin to slow your pace. You may begin by checking out the lake from our private dock that includes the free use of the kayaks and canoe, a quaint covered swing and many acres of grounds to enjoy. Hiking is available on our trails and an impressive beaver dam is your reward for all that walking.

    Mariaville Lake B & B is lakeside lodging at its best. Casual yet elegant, laid back yet with an amazing attention to detail. According to our guests, our 5 guestrooms are immaculate, clean, comfortable, and beautifully furnished. In-Room Massages are available with advance notice. We have spacious common rooms exclusively for 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.

    Your innkeepers, Rick and Lorrie provide warm, attentive hospitality, interesting suggestions for the area, (rich in local history), and a full candlelight breakfast. The business traveler will find comfortable accommodations in Schenectady County but out of the city. WiFi is provided.

    Mariaville Lake Bed & Breakfast. Unique Schenectady lodging at an independent inn with a great vibe.
