One of our monthly blog posts on what to see, do, or where to eat on Deep Creek Lake and Western Maryland.
For those who find joy in searching for waterfalls in the woods, then Blackwater Falls State Park needs to be on your list. Nestled in the picturesque Allegheny Mountains in West Virginia, Blackwater Falls State Park is a lovely scenic drive from the Deep Creek Lake area. The scenery here is striking—the falls are among the most photographed locations in Tucker County and the entire state of West Virginia.
We suggest a day trip to Blackwater Falls State Park if you’re in the Deep Creek Lake area for an extended getaway. While you’ll find plenty to do on the shores of the lake and the nearby Swallow Falls State Park, this scenic drive and untouched wilderness you’ll encounter over the state border in West Virginia is a memorable trip. Aside from these natural water features, the nearly 2,500-acre park is full of beautiful hiking trails with diverse tree species, native plants, birds, and wildlife.
One of the best places to stay in Garrett County is our Deep Creek Lake Hotel, the Lake Pointe Inn. While we’re located about an hour’s drive from Blackwater Falls State Park, it’s the perfect distance for a day trip—especially when you know that our luxurious lakefront accommodations await your return.
Our 12 spacious and beautifully appointed guest rooms offer the most comfortable spaces to relax and unwind. From spa-like en suite baths to our on-site massage room, you’ll have it all here. And we’ll take care of your breakfast each morning of your stay! Head over to our availability calendar and reserve your room today!
A day trip to Blackwater Falls State Park is the perfect destination for a scenic drive from Maryland. You’ll drive through beautiful farmlands and rolling hills. Of course, the leading destination in Blackwater Falls State Park is the stunning 57-foot Blackwater Falls, an impressive cascade pooling into a canyon below.
Upon your return from Blackwater Falls State Park to our Deep Creek Lake Hotel, you’ll love freshening up in your private guest suite and then taking advantage of all the perks of lodging with us. Head down to our dock and dip your toes in the lake. Join us on our afternoon pontoon boat cruise, soaking up the sunshine on the lake. We have snacks and beverages available, and they are best enjoyed around the fire pit into the evening for s’mores and stargazing.
Back in your elegant guest suite, you’ll have everything you need for a restful stay. Curl up by the fire, slip into your plush robe, and turn on your favorite movie. Our big comfortable beds dressed in fine Comphy linens beckon you to rest your tired muscles. And you can drift away into sleep knowing you’ll be refreshed and ready to head out on your next day’s adventure in Deep Creek Lake.
We’ll treat you to a hearty breakfast in the morning, always homemade and seasonal. Our rotating menu offers guests a large selection of sweet and savory dishes, and we’re always happy to cater to vegetarian and vegan diners. Not all Deep Creek Lake Hotels offer these unique perks, and they are always included in the price of your lodging. We can’t wait to host you! Book your room today.
