Our picturesque Deep Creek Lake hotel is situated in the serene mountains of western Maryland, just a two-hour drive from Washington DC, and Baltimore and a three-hour drive from Pittsburgh. The crowning jewel, Deep Creek Lake, offers 65 miles of shoreline and encompasses nearly 4,000 acres. This area is a sought-after vacation spot that attracts visitors all year round. There are four seasons of activities, adventures, and attractions to discover in our beautiful lakefront community. 

During the summer, there are countless activities to enjoy on or near the lake, such as hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing, and fishing. When winter arrives, skiers flock to Wisp Resort, conveniently situated just across the street from our Inn. Spring is a delightful time to witness Mother Nature’s resurgence after a prolonged and icy winter. And then, there’s fall, a truly magnificent season brimming with vibrant colors. If you haven’t considered Deep Creek Lake as a destination to experience Maryland’s autumnal beauty, now is the time to do so.¬†

Our Deep Creek Lake Hotel is the perfect place to stay and is especially cozy during the autumn months. The daily weather in fall is ideal for outdoor activities and then the crisp evenings are best spent curled up in your guest suite by the fire. The Arts and Crafts architecture of our Inn sets the tone with a rustic elegance that gives our guests a sense of ease and relaxation. You can’t help but sit back in our living room by the river rock fireplace and let the stress melt away. We can’t wait to host you; reserve your room today!¬†
