    The centerpiece of Garrett County, 12 mile long Deep Creek Lake sits at the top of the Ohio River watershed, just west of the Eastern Continental Divide, at an altitude of 2500 feet. Garrett County, Maryland's westernmost, is unique and bears no resemblance to any other area of the state. The elevated Appalachian plateau features forested ridges, open farmlands, waterfalls, rushing rivers and swampy primeval glades. A delightful unexplained surprise of the Deep Creek Lake shoreline is near total absence of mosquitos, gnats and other biting insects.

    Garrett County's unique climate also bears no resemblance to any eastern urban area. Year round temperatures average 15 degrees below Washington/Baltimore and 10 degrees below Pittsburgh.

    Summer days are mild with temperatures reaching a pleasant low 70s to mid 80s. Summer nights are comfortably cool in the 50s and 60s. Crisp autumn days witness brilliant foliage throughout October. First frost usually appears around October 1st and first snow around the end of October.


    Old man winter arrives early, stays late and usually leaves behind 100-200 inches of snow. The lake will freeze to 18 inches and the frigid temperatures allow extensive ski-area snowmaking. Alpine skiing often begins in November and continues until mid-March and occasionally into April. Cross-country skiing is at its best just after one of the 15-20 annual snowfalls. Spring springs late at Deep Creek Lake. After enjoying the bloom of your home town Spring, come to the lake and experience it all over again from mid-April to mid-June.


    Breakfast is included in the rate. It is a generous breakfast with a hot entree served daily. We do serve dinner(at an additional charge) on our three night holiday weekends.


    Our Inn dates back to the late 1800s but underwent an extensive restoration in the Summer and Fall of 1995. Our restoration provides all the comforts of a fine lodge. You can relax/read by our incredible stone fireplace in the Great Room or rock in one of our chairs on our wrap around porch and take in the Lake views! The Inn has been appointed in the Arts and Crafts tradition and is air conditioned. Each room has individually controlled heat, telephones with private number, private baths, down comforters and down pillows (substitutes will be provided for those allergic to down)

  • Area Activities

    Outdoors there is a wildly popular fire pit, amply stocked with logs and marshmallows, where guests gather nightly to enjoy one another's after dinner company. Even shy and introverted guests, after an hour around the campfire, become good friends with erstwhile strangers. Launch the Inn's 5 kayaks and canoes for a paddle about the lake to work off that ample breakfast. Afternoons find guests all around the inn's grounds lounging, swimming at the dock, or just taking in the views from patio perches. Explore the neighborhood on provided bicycles or hike the mountain trails and spread out in the lake side hammock to rest those weary legs. 6 PM brings the ever popular hour long cruise down the lake aboard the good ship "Tight Squeeze" the inn's pontoon boat. In the snowy winter, the inn offers convenience and discounted ski lift passes and can make reservations for tubing at Wisp Ski resort across the road. Energetic guests can venture out on the inn's snow shoes. We get well above 100 inches of snow each winter – more than Buffalo, New York.
