Sweet Treats at Lakeside Creamery and More

One of our monthly blog posts on what to see, do, or where to eat on Deep Creek Lake and Western Maryland.

Lakeside Creamery

There’s nothing better on a hot summer day than a stop at Lakeside Creamery for ice cream in a homemade waffle cone. After a long day on the lake or hiking in the woods it’s the best way to treat yourself. Thousands of visitors and locals head to the Lakeside Creamery each summer to indulge and take in the pretty lake views with cones in hand. At the nearby Deep Creek restaurants and cafes, you’ll also find other sweet treats in the area (donuts, cookies, and homemade candy!).

Lakeside Creamery was opened in 1995 by Bill Meagher, who wanted to create a space for people to come together. It’s now become a coveted summer job for the local teenagers, where they learn essential life skills while spreading joy, one scoop at a time. Over the past 25 years, the ice cream parlor has become a well-known dessert destination. Even better, there’s a boat dock right below the shop, making it an ideal stop when you’re out cruising the lake.

You’ll notice at our Deep Creek Lake Hotel that we also appreciate a tasty sweet treat. We love to have fresh baked goods available to our guests, and that’s not even including our delicious gourmet breakfast service each morning and our afternoon happy hour with snacks and wine. You won’t go hungry during your stay with us! We’re also located near some of the best restaurants in Deep Creek for your lunch and dinner options.
