How do you improve upon perfection? You don't. You guard it, protect it, and maintain it, so that others may savor and enjoy it. This is exactly what Mary, the Innkeeper of Carmel Cove Inn has done since our first visit last July (for my review of our first visit to Carmel Cove scroll through the reviews to the title... More

My husband and I spent an unseasonably cold but beautiful October weekend in Deep Creek at Carmel Cove. It was lovely, peaceful and relaxing. Mary is a great inn keeper, always available but not intrusive. The common sitting room is large and cozy with lots of free drinks, wine, beer, hot chocolate, games, and the daily newspaper. The breakfast room... More

From the moment we walked in, we felt right at home. Mary showed us around, introduced us to other guests, and then showed us to our room which was very nice. These rooms are not large - they were former "cells" for monks and nuns - but there are queen beds, antique furniture, and a clock radio with an iPhone... More

This is the second time we have stayed at the Carmel Cove. They have a beautiful property that is near a smaller end of the lake. Quiet and serene, it makes for a relaxing and romantic getaway. We stayed here to celebrate our 5th anniversary, and Mary was a fabulous and gracious host. This place has much to do, with... More

Mary and her son were gracious hosts. Truly a quiet getaway for 2 in a great location. One of the best parts was all the included amenities-kayak, canoe, fishing tackle, bikes, tennis rackets, smores, wine and beer 24 hrs, and much more. Nice that they don't nickel and dime you to death like many other places. The only reason 4... More

Staying at the Carmel Cove Inn was such a lovely getaway. Mary and her staff know how to create a relaxing and fun stay. From a delicious breakfast (included) to use of canoes, fishing gear, bikes, and tennis court and equipment you almost don't need to leave the Inn. They have an outside bonfire every night with tasty s'mores. They... More

Carmel Cove is a delightful place to unwind from a busy day. From the wine,beer and sodas available always to the after dinner port and the nightly bonfire with s'mores ingredients provided to the relative isolation to the gourmet quality breakfasts to the general helpfulness and friendliness, It was great. We were there 15 years ago and couldn't believe we... More

I could not have asked for a better trip. Joe and Mary were awesome and always willing to help. The nightly bonfire was relaxing and we met several other nice couples. The room was great, clean, spacious, and great to relax in. Breakfast that was served everyday was divine and I look forward to going back in the future with... More

Very lovely setting in the Deep Creek Lake area. It is not lakefront -- and the walk to the lake is 200 yards down a wooded path. The rooms are lovely and the common areas are quite spacious, includes a pool table! Mary offers appetizers and wine every night at 6 pm, and there is a small fridge that has... More

My boyfriend and I stayed only one night, just to get away for a weekend and have some relaxation time. We actually went on a Sunday night into Monday, so many of the rooms had been vacated earlier in the day, and we practically had the whole pace to ourselves for most of the time. I had never been to... More
