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 Delmar

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.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful Suite and Excellent Hostess

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 4 of 5

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 stylish accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

Countryside with bird song all around. Open spaces with just the sounds of nature - exactly what I needed. The accommodation was so much more than a Bed & breakfast with several rooms flowing into each other and decks where you could sip a sundowner or early morning coffee and forget about life for a while. The one day I stayed was not long enough, yet I felt refreshed after an early morning walk along a trail nearby that brought me in sight of deer, ducks and bunnies. Marietta & her husband was so welcoming & were the perfect hosts - if ever I am back in that area I will definitely go back. Thank you!
