Tesla Drivers – Lake Pointe Inn offers a new charging location! Garrett County, Maryland heralds three events from the annals of electrification:
1921 – Thomas Edison, with friends Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone, camps at Muddy Creek Falls.
1925 – The Youghiogheny Electric Company completes Deep Creek Lake to provide hydroelectric power.
2015 – The Lake Pointe Inn, on the shore of Deep Creek Lake, installs a Tesla electric car charging station.
So come Tesla and Electric Car drivers and visit the site where the 1921 Vagabonds, as they were known, explored the ‘wilds’ of the Maryland’s western counties! A marker can be found at Swallow Falls State Park today where they camped.
You can also view Deep Creek Lake spillway where at the base, the 1925 Power Plant is still generating electric power.
In July, 2015 – Lake Pointe Inn teamed up with Tesla Motors to provide an increasingly desirable amenity–Tesla Destination Charging. The Tesla High Power Wall Connector adds 58 miles of range per hour to the Tesla Model S, charging the vehicle overnight and replicating the convenience Tesla owners are accustomed to at home. The inn’s other High Power Wall Connector provides charging to the various other electric cars.
Tesla Model S offers 270 miles of range on a single charge, so the High Power Wall Connector can easily top off the Tesla in just a few hours, giving Tesla drivers the freedom to charge almost anywhere they want to travel! Lake Pointe Inn has a 100A Tesla Wall Connector and a 40A connector for other electric cars; guests charge for free at either of these connectors when spending the night.
CORPORATE RATES: Contact the Innkeeper for rates and policies. Available on weekdays off season.
