Mariaville Lake Bed and Breakfast

We left Niagara Falls this morning and headed for our destination for the weekend - Mariaville Lake, NY.  The ride was all highway except the last 10 miles.  We really missed the quiet highways of the UP today!

We arrived at 4 and were immediately welcomed by Lorrie, one of the inn keepers.  It is a beautiful old house and every room is different.  Our room is beautiful and faces the lake.

Last night we had a fantastic dinner in a revolving dining room overlooking Niagara Falls.  Tonight we had wraps and potato salad on the little deck on the lake.  What a switch but we are happy doing either!

After a cup of coffee on the deck, we went on a "night walk" with the inn owners, Rick and Lorrie.  It was awesome (and a little bit scary).  We learned a lot about night vision (no flashlights allowed) and checked out some constellations and satellites.  We also trekked through some woods to a beaver dam.  At first, we could hear the beavers   slapping the water.  Rick brought a night scope and we could see the beavers swimming around.  It was really cool. 

When we got back from our walk, some of the other guests had started a fire so we joined them for awhile and had a fun time.

Tomorrow, Rich and I are going to repeat the hike and see the beaver dam in the daylight.

Mileage:  295
