“The Lake Star Lodge - it's changed!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

This is not same Lake Star Lodge of the past. The new owner has a vision for what the lodge can become and has done much work to restore the rooms; they are also updating the exterior. We stayed in a queen room on the second floor with the fireplace. The fireplace lights up the room. The room was immaculate, and the furnishings and decorating are tastefully done. The owner gave us a tour of the three room suite which is also absolutely lovely with a lot of space (three bedrooms, kitchen, dining and sitting area.) In our room, we sat on the small balcony and enjoyed the sunshine and the view. The Lake Star lodge is right on the lake with views of WISP and very close to restaurants, shopping, and attractions. Visitors to the lodge also have use of a kitchen and dining area adjacent to the office area. There is a large patio with grill and tables in the back. A new affordable jewel on the lake has been created - recommend you give it a try!

My husband and I had a long weekend at Deep Creek Lake. I am so happy we stayed at LakeStar Lodge. Our room was very quaint. It had a queen bed, small fridge, microwave and a small couch. Our favorite part was the fireplace...it provided a cozy spot on a rainy night! There was plenty of room to move around. Outside was a balcony that overlooked the lake, as well as the fire pit, which we sat at the first night. The staff were always nearby to help with suggestions, directions, or simply a friendly 'hello'! We plan visiting again and would gladly recommend!!

Room Tip: Nicer view from second floor!

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 the lake. The staff were friendly and the housekeeping staff even surprised us with a bottle of wine.

Three of us rented the 3 bedroom suite for a weekend getaway. It was beautifully remodeled. The staff was really friendly & helpful. The resort was quiet and we met some new friends out by the fire pit. We can wait to go back!

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 no closet in the room i stayed in, nor in the room a friend stayed in. There was no real storage space in these rooms, so you would have to live out of a suitcase! But the microwave and fridge in room are great, but you also have access to a full kitchen in the lobby and a gas grill outside. The fire pits are great for night time use.

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.
