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!

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here and stayed in one of.the yurts. We really enjoyed it and the staff went out of their way t o make it a enjoyable weekend. We never even moved the truck after arriving until time to check out. The only thing I feel could be done is a little more upkeep outside... More

Three nights in a yurt with luxurious accommodations that rival a 5-star hotel. If you want to get off the grid...but can't stand to rough it...this place is for you. No TV, but I had no problem with cell coverage in my yurt. The food in the Lodge building is top notch--diverse, organic, creative, & tasty. There's wifi in the... More

We stayed two nights in Yurt 2, which we loved. The furnishings were really nice, and the heated floors were luxurious. It was great to hear the rain on the roof of the tent, as well as the wind through the woods. Definitely a great glamping experience. The staff at SRL was extremely friendly. We appreciated the great micro-brews on... More

Pretty property, staff very friendly. Staying in a yurt was very nice and a nice alternative to a cabin. Most dinner entrees were quite rich with creams, maple syrup, etc -- would like to have had some simpler dishes to choose from. Asked about substituting lighter ingredients but said they couldn't. Took art and nature package to FLW houses, but... More

Just wonderful! I would have loved to visit during the winter and snow. The staff are great, the service is great and the food...forget about it! Yum! Loved it. So keep it a secret, will ya? Don't tell anyone. My suggestion is don't visit. Seriously...thank you! Wonderful!
