The lodge is located right on the lake, right next to WISP resort and close to several state parks where the trails were awesome to hike. If you love the outdoors visit Deep Creek and stay at LakeStar Lodge! The room was cozy and we could walk out our back door, relax by the fire and enjoy the view of... More

The lodge is right on the lake - couldn't be in a better location. And the rooms are gorgeous. Fireplaces and wood furniture and a balcony overlooking the lake. The staff was also very nice and accommodating. Would definitely go back/ recommend.

The hotel is beautifully decorated, very homey, and the staff is all very sweet. The hotel is right on the lake and every room has a stunning view off of its own deck. I plan on returning here very very soon. The only thing to take note of in my opinion is for travelers staying a full week. There was... More

We had a great experience here. The room was beautiful, and the view from the room was equally as wonderful. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The location is close to the state parks as well as to Wisp.

Nice for the price. Right on the lake. Very quiet. Although the wheel on the bed broke off and flew across the room when my boyfriend sat on it. And they only provide one 3hr log for the fireplace per stay rather than per night and no one informed me that we shouldn't use real firewood in the fireplace. We... More

Thank you for your feedback. Our apologies for the bed issue...the wheel was immediately reinstalled and secured. As for the fireplace, we use Duralogs instead of real wood for various reasons: (1) Duralogs burn cleaner than real wood which helps us keep the rooms in pristine condition; (2) the 3-hour logs are used because we have found that most of...

Loved the room and the location. Great view. Wished for coffee in the room, although it was available at the front desk. I also wished for a hot tub after two days of hiking. All in all, I'd recommend to anyone. Had a wonderful experience

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend.We found the staff very pleasant and the room extremely clean.The room had a fireplace and a nice outside balcony.We will definitely stay here again.The lake star lodge is on the water and you have a beautiful view of the mountains.If you are a skier the Wisp resort is very close.

Nice place. Nice location near the WISP ski resort. The rooms were clean. The staff was very nice. But the mattress in room 201 needs to be replaced because the springs are making themselves known. The parking can be a little tight.

The Lake Star Lodge was a wonderful place to spend a few days away. Everyone was very nice and helpful with suggestions for places to eat in the area. The back deck was great to sit on even though the lake was still frozen. We will definitely be going back again!

I stayed here with my son for a ski weekend at Wisp. He thoroughly enjoyed it as did I. It's perfectly located with great views of the slopes and quick access to several local restaurants. When I called for a reservation, they matched the Groupon rate, making it an excellent value. Try to get an upstairs room with Duraflame "log"... More
