My wife and I had a Deep Creek area wedding to attend the same weekend as our 30th anniversary. We decided to extend the weekend, enjoy the area and find a place to stay that wasn't a typical hotel for the special occasion. The LakeStar Lodge did not disappoint. From the moment we arrived I could not ask for friendlier... More

We would definitely stay here again. We did this with the Groupon and will go back again for sure. Rooms are very nicely decorated. While small, they have a lot of nice little touches though and each one is waterfront with a balcony. Staff is super friendly and accommodating. Love the wood furniture. Each room has a small fridge and... More

Thanks for the 'heads up' ... we investigated the bed in room 109, as you described, and have replaced the box spring. Hope to have you back soon. More

The lodge is a great place to get away. The rooms are very nice. The furnishings are beautiful and made from refinished barn wood. The floors are bamboo and help to keep the place extremely clean. The view is wonderful and sitting out in the evening by the lake is peaceful and relaxing. The staff is friendly and helpful but... More

Took a 3-day getaway here and loved it! Cute rooms decorated with reclaimed wood items, and nice lake front views. We used both outdoor fire pits and had a great time. Clean, super friendly staff, and it is close to everything! We'll definitely come back!

My first trip to Deep Creek, and it was a memorable one. New renovations to the lodge that are beautiful. Rooms were small, but with beautiful views. Sat by the fire pit each night. Staff were friendly and extremely helpful. Want to make this an annual trip and stay at LakeStar Lodge.

Surprised my wife with a 3 day trip to LakeStar Lodge in June and we had a great experience. We loved the rustic charm of this lodge, and the fact that it was not like the chain motels. The room was excellent and spotless, the bed was very comfortable, and the view of the lake from the private balcony was... More

We stayed two days and had an awesome time. They were in the process of renovating the outside. It will look really rustic and nice from the previous look. Love the bed and breakfast feel to it. Although no breakfast, they provide granola bars and coffee, tea, or hot chocolate any time. You can also go to spirits store or... More

The motel staff are wonderful. Friendly, as helpful as possible. Got 2 rooms. Room 206 has better view in June because of tree leaf out, but 210 has privacy. Room 206 has better bathroom layout. 210 has serious sink issues, since it is a pedestal sink without countertop. And no place to put the fingertip towel. 206 is better equipped.... More

If you are looking for a no-frills place this is it. No ironing board...not a necessity and a very small fridge. Bring a cooler and they have plenty of ice. No coffee maker in room but they have a Keurig in the lobby or bring your own. The small kitchen in the lobby is nice. The Pro's...Awesome location in a... More
