    Sweet Lakeside Cottage With Breakfast Goodies

    The Lake Cottage is a fully furnished cottage located on Mariaville Lake in Western Schenectady County. It has a great gas fireplace so you can sit by the fire and gaze out at the lake. We stock your fridge with breakfast items like local eggs from free range hens, all natural Greek yogurt, fresh fruit, and organic free trade coffee, enough for 2 or 3 days. Free secure Wi-Fi, free off road parking are just two advantages to staying at the Lake Cottage. This 200-acre private lake is lovely and offers privacy and tranquility. The fishing is great, especially from our rowboat.You can also explore the lake in our canoe or kayaks. Swimming is right from the dock. In the colder months, enjoy ice fishing, ice skating and cross-country skiing on the trails. Use our snow shoes and explore the area or spend the day skiing at one of the nearby down hill ski resorts and come back to enjoy the warmth of the fire. The front of the house with southern exposure boasts a deck as well as an upstairs balcony both facing the lake, fitted with chairs for your exclusive use, and plenty of lawn to run around in. The first floor is one large room with living room, dining area and kitchen. The kitchen is fully functional with dishes and utensils, electric stove, full sized refrigerator dishwasher, microwave oven, toaster, and coffee maker. Satellite TV with DVD player are provided. The air conditioned upstairs has two bedrooms, one with a queen and the other with a full futon and one twin bed. A door leads onto the upstairs balcony with gorgeous views. The full bath has a shower and a claw foot tub. Ahhh. Sorry, no pets. ADA standards exempt B&Bs of 5 rooms or less that are owner occupied from accepting service animals.

          Lovely cottage

          Lovely, quiet cottage with many amenities! Perfect lake for kayaking. We used kayaks provided. We also used bikes provided. Cottage in central location with easy access to Albany. Lorrie & Rick are awesome & readily available if you have any questions. Thank you! Hope to be up that way in the future. Deb & Ernie

            Dream cottage

            This cottage is the best of both worlds.....a rustic cottage with bed and breakfast touches. The beds and linens are cozy, the cottage is very clean and well stocked. The view from the living room window is exactly like the picture. The gas fireplace was easy to use (after reading the instructions) and kept the entire cottage warm. The breakfast makings were much appreciated after a long drive from North Carolina. Thanks Lorrie and Rick for making our stay so wonderful.

            5/5 Excellent

              Beautiful, "extremely clean" and well managed.

              We had a wonderful time at the Mariaville Lakeside Cottage and will certainly be back for years to come.
