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 Town of New Scotland
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.

Very nice place to stay, beautiful house and grounds and we even got homemade breakfast. The owner was very nice too, gave us tips about the area. Loved seeing the horses too and Zoe. Wished it was not raining so during our stay, for we would have liked to walk the trails.
Beautiful Suite and Excellent Hostess
The suite is spacious and tastefully decorated, very private and peaceful. Marietta is a great cook and wonderful hostess with detailed knowledge of the area, places to eat and things to do. My daughter was especially delighted when we accompanied Marietta to visit her horses during our stay. Definitely would stay here again next time we're in the area!
A fantastic place to getaway...with a host of hosts
We had a fantastic stay during a frigid weekend. It’s a very comfortable space. Very quiet. Very tranquil. Marietta is a terrific cook, knowledgeable host and very kind person. She’s a foodie helping direct us to some of the better places to eat around town. Will return.
Beautiful, quiet respite along way to New England. Owner was warm, friendly and has paid attention to the smallest detail. Served amazing breakfast. No reason to ever stay in Latham or Albany when this is a few short miles down road. We thank the owners for a lovely stay. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Thank you, Leigh! Hope to have you as our guests again when you have more time to linger.
A Hidden Gem
This place is a hidden gem with all its first class amenities, location, view, hearty hot breakfast , etc. I wish we could have stayed longer.
Thank you for your lovely comments about your stop-over at Inn At Deer Meadow! I meet the most interesting people! And I hope you return and make your wish come true to stay longer and to explore what this area has to offer.
Thank you so much to Marietta and Harm for making our stay a special one! Your guest home is comfortable, beautiful and clean "like new" - sparkles! We very much appreciated your delicious and thoughtfully prepared breakfasts, and easy going days and evenings! We plan to return when we can, and we have already recommended your lovely accommodations to our friends and neighbors. Take care and happy travels! Shari, Craig and James Fishman
Inn At Deer Meadow is only 30 miles from the well-known resort and summer destination of Saratoga Springs! An easy drive to the horse races, Saratoga Performing Arts Center, PGA Golf Course. And lower rates than in Saratoga!
