About Marietta Schork Velvis

Your hosts have traveled extensively in Europe, the Caribbean and in the USA. We have hosted several exchange students from Europe and South America. Much of our family still lives in The Netherlands and part of the younger generation seems to have found a home in the mountains of Colorado. We have a passion for our horses and have met many wonderful friends through the horse world. The Dutch history of Albany and surroundings drew us to appreciate the value of living in this special place.

Marietta Schork Velvis purchased this farmhouse in 1997

Why Marietta Schork Velvis chose New York

The Inn At Deer Meadow is located in a very special corner of Albany County. We are adjacent to 5 Rivers Environmental Education Center, a 450 acre NYS nature preserve. The Vlomankil bisects the property, offering a beautiful sound of running water and a natural place to cool off on a hot summer day. The energy surrounding us is very healing. And there is evidence of ceremonial fire-rings dating back 5000 years!

What makes this farmhouse unique

Inn At Deer Meadow offers privacy, luxury, quiet and comfort to guests. Yet, it is conveniently located near Albany and the Hill-towns of Albany County. There are museums, restaurants, theaters, parks, colleges and many other amenities to be found within a short drive. Albany Airport and the Renssalaer Train station are only 15 minutes away.

Extraordinaryly nice B&B, quiet, great views to forest behind property.

  • 5 of 5

Marietta is perfect in her role as owner and hostess of this 5 star B&B. Completely handicap accessible and very comfortable. Over 1100 sqare foot apartment with separate bedroom and living area. Breakfasts are well above average and we did not eat lunch those days we stayed there. Breakfasts started with a yogurt that has the fresh fruit of the day mixed in (Blueberries, peaches and other fruit that is in season). An egg omlet one day, on another day we had fresh corn fritters (served as pancakes) with fresh corn just off the cob inside the pancakes. Needless to say, we were overeating and enjoying every minute of the experience. It now is our go to place in the Albany area when we make our annual trip for Tanglewood concerts.

Perfect Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

You can't say enough about this magical property! The very comfortable king size bed is in the middle of a beautiful large bedroom. The bathroom should be in a picture in a magazine. The delicious breakfast served to us on the outside deck overlooking the meadow was so special. Marietta is a terrific host; she made us feel so at home and we had many conversations about the area. We are moving there to be near our children who live close to this beautiful B&B.

So much nicer than staying at a hotel...

  • 5 of 5

What can I say except that when we come to Albany to visit family, or for work, this is where we will stay. The property was clean and well maintained, the bed was large and comfy, the jacuzzi was amazing, big enough for two and plenty of hot water. The radiant floor heating was the perfect touch, as we stayed in January!

Marietta was a wonderful host. We ate delicious breakfasts and enjoyed watching the white tailed deer in the back yard. The location is perfect, you are just outside the city, yet you get the peacefulness and tranquility of the country. I have already recommended this place to my friends and people we know who might need a wonderful place to stay just outside of Albany, NY.

I look forward to our next visit!
