Marienthal Country Inn
It’s not just a place, it’s an experience.
My husband, Vinnie and myself (Louise) are lifelong residents of Eden, NY and love to showcase this beautiful area we live in. The rural countryside of New Oregon is a jewel and the center of the world in some eyes!
We bought the former country church St Mary’s in July 2007 when it closed after 150 years in operation. The former rectory was unoccupied since 1980 so our efforts began there. We tore down walls, put in new septic systems, water treatment, electrical, made curtains, refinished furniture and even made beds from the church pew benches. We’ve reused and recycled anything that could be transitioned to another use. It was opened for business on Valentine’s Day in 2008 as the Artisan Inn at Marienthal.
The following year we opened the former convent, now the Brick House Lodge. The church building was opened in November 2012 as a banquet hall.
Vince is our entertainment, fulfilling his dream of being a stand up comic. He is sure to tell a joke or two at breakfast. I am the frustrated artist I suppose and now that the place is decorated and the walls are full of paintings, I use our breakfast as my creative outlet. I enjoy using local produce, eggs & meats and delight in surprising our guests with a breakfast dessert!

Our Mission: Peace, Comfort & Inspiration
Peace is found on this property, in this beautiful countryside and historical buildings.
Comfort is found in our beautiful rooms, fabulous breakfasts and treatment of each guest as special and unique.
Inspiration is found not just in décor and colors; it is found in our seminars and workshops, our babbling brook, the whispering old trees, the singing birds. It is found in stories of the past, stories from new found friends, and stories you found within yourself.
It’s not just a place, it’s an experience.
