We spent three nights over July 4th weekend. The place is in the middle of nowhere. It is dog-friendly. There is no internet access (either Wifi or through cell coverage, which was very weak; could barely send and receive email). They say they have Wifi (and it is set up) but there is zero bandwidth, so don't expect to search... More

MC1969Traveler, Thank you so much for your time! As always, we appreciate the feedback. We love hearing what our guests experience while they are with us, from top to bottom! Internet is unfortunately a problem we've been fighting for a long time. While the main Lodge does have Wi-Fi, albeit from a satellite connection which is painfully slow, the cabins... More

We have stayed at SRL half a dozen or more times over the years. The staff continues to be among the best, most professional, and friendliest I have encountered in all my travels. On my last visit, we stayed in one of the new yurts. They are not quite finished (most notably no back porch or fireplace), but we were... More

Our first visit and it exceeded every expectation! The food in the lodge restaurant was superb and only surpassed by the excellent wait staff. All the employees at SRL we encountered during our stay were very accommodating and did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. The trails are very well marked and offer a wide range of levels.... More

Although the grounds surrounding the new yurts are still developing, the inside experience of the Yurts is way beyond our expectations. There is something quite magical about these 30ft diameter circle "tents" with the 2 6 six beams that rise to a glass dome. We were lucky, (and I am not kidding) to spend a night when it rained the... More

We had a great, relaxing vacation at Savage River. Cabins are rustic but somehow contemporary - so different than any other place I've stayed. The bottom floor had a seating area, small dining table, gas fireplace, large full bathroom with separate sink outside the bathroom, coffee station, small fridge, book shelf to peruse. Note: there is no tv. This made... More

Luxury camping? --That's what I thought when we found this resort - of sorts - hidden in the Appalachian mountains of western Maryland. The description seems mutually exclusive, and I admit that arriving at 8:30 at night was much like receiving a present on Christmas eve that you're not allowed to open until morning. We checked into cabin 11 located... More

Don't be fooled by the fact that you are staying in log cabins; this is really 'glamping'! Rustic cabins equiped with modern facilities and decorated in a cosy log cabin style, they are so welcoming with a 'gas' log fire, comfy couch and sofas and a super comfortable bed under the eaves in the open loft area. This isn't a... More

Another wonderful 2.5 days at Savage River Lodge. We love Cabin 1 with it's gas stove, comfortable beds, beautiful views into the pine forest, cozy furniture and lovely robes! Our meals in the lodge were excellent, Brad made us fresh lemonade after our 4 mile hike on the red trail and all of our servers/bartenders/housekeeping were so friendly and accommodating.... More

My wife and I live in DC and manage to make it out to the Savage River Lodge 2 or three times a year. What keeps bringing us back is its great location in the woods and its friendly staff. Every place I've every gone that I really like has had one thing in common: the staff seem to sincerely... More

I took my husband here to celebrate his 50th birthday.When we arrived, there was a birthday note and 2 yummy truffles for us to enjoy. We stayed for 4 nights in February during a snowstorm. The surroundings were magical with the deep-laden snow and more snow falling. We were cozy however in our cabin #1 with the fire burning and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Comfort - Privacy - Relaxation. We often hear these words when people talk about the Savage River Lodge. Nestled within more than 700 acres of Western Maryland's Savage River State Forest, the lodge is a peaceful retreat from a busy world. Once you're here, you'll find all the elements of relaxation and comfort--fantastic food, sink-into accommodations, your own private cabin, and exceptional hospitality. Whether you prefer to watch nature from your rocking chair or spend your day in pursuit of your favorite outdoor activity, you'll take home the spirit of the forest...and the Savage River Lodge. Our eighteen luxury cabins and the nearby lodge building, surrounded by the forest, convey a rustic, lived-in comfort. Our amenities and appointments, however are decidedly upscale and infused with a genuinely friendly and relaxed hospitality. ... more   less
