About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, sleeps 4, although 6 can be accomodated

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.

Get out of town and stay at the Lake!

About Lorrie Runnels

Rick and Lorrie have been together since 1980 and have two grown children. They have always loved to have guests over and share their lives. Twenty some years ago they said to themselves, “I wish we could make a living doing this.” Then in 2003, they bought this fantastic house on the lake in order to realize their dream.

You will find Rick and Lorrie knowledgeable about the area. They are around for information, but as someone stated, “Hospitality abounds while guest’s privacy and solitude are highly respected.” They both love music and you might find them going out to concert or to a music festival.

We are innkeepers with an excellent housekeeping staff so you can be sure your accommodations will be spotless. Fluffy towels, bottled water, and chocolate are just a few of the amenities that set us apart.

Location

Car: necessary

So, now that you have landed on this page, what would you do if you booked a stay with us? Several options come to mind.

The most obvious is to settle into a comfortable Adirondack chair, glass of wine or beer in hand, watch the lake and the geese and, if you're lucky, bald eagles! We had a couple from the Netherlands who spent many happy hours just watching the chipmunks scamper.

Kayaking and canoeing on Mariaville Lake is sweet! It's fun to see everyone's house and folks are friendly. We'll be happy to give you a lesson before you shove off.

When you are rested you can take a drive to Schoharie County and visit Howe Caverns, a pretty cool place open all year round. They now have zip lines and a rope course which looks pretty awesome. The Iroquois Indian Museum is right next door to the Caverns, too. There are all sorts of historical places around here. The Capital Region was settled (by Europeans) way before the Revolutionary War.

If a little night life is more your speed, Schenectady and Albany have good restaurants, theater, and live music. I am particularly fond of MOPCO, the Capital Region's premiere improv troupe. If you need a good laugh, Friday night with MOPCO is the place to be.

Sunday is Schenectady Green Market Day, and going to the Green Market is a guest favorite. Loads of vendors, live music and truly the best pesto anywhere.
