We stayed in a cabin for 3 nights and it was exactly was I was hoping for. The lodge was beautiful and our cabin was comfortable, clean and had everything we could possibly want. The picnic basket every morning with orange juice and a muffin was a great treat we looked forward to. Every staff member was eager to help,... More

When I booked this weekend retreat I w as very excited. Having lived in the city for the twenty years, I have come to relist Western Maryland and all its beauty. We normally stay at Deep Creek lake, but decided to try the luxury accommodations at SRL. The cabins were nice, but not luxurious by any means. However, compared to... More

Hello LovinL1fe - Thank you so much for taking the time to review us! We will pass the positive comments on Jocelyn's service along to her. The safety of our guests is a high priority here at the Lodge and we will reinforce with our housekeeping staff the need to operate more slowly as they complete their daily tasks. Many... More

We stayed in the yurts at Savage River Lodge for our anniversary weekend and had a wonderful relaxing time. The yurts are spacious and luxurious, with a gas fireplace, radiant heat floors, and air conditioning. We hiked and dined at the lodge- which had excellent cuisine and wine. Would definitely recommend!

Had. A nice time. Stayed in Yurt 2 - furnishings were nice but I believe a yurt is better when it's not too warm. The Yurt needed to be open so it didn't heat up in the sun and they are close together so you can hear a lot from your neighbors. The lodge was nice, dinners were great on... More

Another outstanding visit to Savage River Lodge! This was our first stay in a yurt. The interiors are quite glamorous and we loved the private porch with two rocking chairs. The only negative is that when the sun beats down during the day, it gets really HOT inside. I think there is a way to open the top to let... More

We took a last minute trip during Spring Break and fell in love with the place! This was also our very first vacation with our high maintenance Bichon mix (think toddler with fur) and it went great! Not a single accident and he was actually fine when we left the cabin to enjoy the fabulous dinners and other meals at... More

Surprised my wife with a stay at SRL. We had such a great time here. Evening started with my wife getting an in-cabin massage (1 hour standard). Our therapist that they paired her with was wonderful and worth every penny. We walked over to take a look at the new yurts but I think I would still prefer the cabins... More

Who knew? An amazing small family-owned hotel and restaurant ensconced in the tall pines and Appalachian woodlands of western Maryland. This is written after my third visit,the first in one of their new Yurts. In a word, terrific. This reminds me more of the early days of the Relais & Chateau group's collection of comfortable countryside relais. Rustic elegance. The... More

My husband and I stayed in a cabin for 3 nights. I couldn't have asked for a more relaxing place to spend time with the person I love! Service was second to none. The staff made us feel like family. The food was outstanding! We are already planning our next trip back!
