My boyfriend and I took a trip to the inn to get a break from city life. Mary the innkeeper was welcoming and genuine. We were given a tour of the inn, and recommendations for sightseeing and dining. We went to a great seafood restaurant called Dutch’s, and Mountain State Brewery, a great local brewpub. We spent our first evening... More

My fiance and I stayed here during our ski trip to Wisp Resort. The Inn was beautiful and breakfast was amazing each day. Their common room was also enjoyable. There was complimentary water, soda, and beer to enjoy while playing pool or just relaxing by the fire. The Inn Keepers were also very nice and friendly.

We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary here. Mary was very friendly and nice. The bed and breakfast was very clean. The extra things that were offered were very nice. Mary also made sure I had gluten free food for breakfast!

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
