“Great Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

My husband and I recently stayed here. The rooms were immaculate. We had a room w/a fireplace. I actually found out on Trip Advisor that you need to take Duraflame logs for the fireplace. The hotel provides one free. Every room had a little porch/balcony overlooking the lake. The management and owner were very helpful and friendly. Coffee, tea and granola every day all day in the small kitchen area. We had a delightful time.

We stayed here for the weekend and really enjoyed ourselves. We live in OH, our friends in B'more, this was the perfect meeting spot. The new owners have put a lot of money and thought into the improvements. My first requirement is a hotel be clean... this was definitely clean! We stayed on the 2nd floor, no elevator, with a fireplace (great amenity!) and also included was a micro, mini frig, nice towels, mounted flat screen TV and a private balcony with a beautiful view. There is a firepit and patio out back for guest to use, along with a dock. There is a kitchen for guest use including Keurig coffee maker whenever you'd like some. The people working were very friendly, nice and seemed to like their job, from the front desk to the cleaning people.... which says a lot about the employer. I'm so glad the new owner has brought the lodge back to life! We will be returning!

Staff was very friendly and helpful. This was our first trip to Deep Creek Lake. The staff is made up of locals that knew the area well a told us about places to visit. The room was very nice and comfortable. Everything has recently been updated or remodeled. Even the towels felt brand new. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We purchased a Groupon for one night at Lake Star Lodge. What a great value! The rooms have been renovated with a rustic decor. You would not have described our king room as spacious, but is was cozy and ample. The property is designed that you can park outside your room (if your one the first floor) and take your luggage directly in your room. The opposite side of the room is a door to your porch on the lakeside. The linens and towels were good quality, not those thin small towels! The bed had a choice of five large pillows, so you should be able to find one to your liking. The bed was a bit too soft for me, but that is a personal preference. It was very quiet we never heard even a door close or plumbing. Everything was immaculate! Our unit had a small fridge and microwave. Coffee was available at the office all day. During our visit, the lodge was getting new log siding and railing. They were working 9-5, so it didn't cause us any problems. The work will be done by mid-May. It rained in the evening so we didn't take advantage of the fire pit. Since it was a Monday night in the fringe season, there wasn't much happening around the lake on a rainy night. We took a ride to a nearby casino. There are two casinos within about a 30 min. drive. The staff was very friendly!!! We hope to go back again!

Room Tip: I liked the first floor room. They do have three pet friendly rooms too.

I purchased a Groupon for the Lake Star Lodge, not knowing what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised! The room was lovely; the lodge was immaculate; free coffee and granola bars; all within a two-hour drive of Pittsburgh. I will definitely visit again!

Room Tip: There are several dog-friendly rooms with easy access!

We just got back from our relaxing weekend getaway and we couldn't have had a better time! The lodge has been newly renovated and was one of the cleanest places I have stayed in away from home. The furnishings are hand made and nicely selected. Although the room and bathroom are somewhat small, it was fine for two of us. I would not suggest a family trip in these rooms. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and check in/check out was smooth and easy. Despite the property being on a small lot, they used the grounds space wisely and there are chairs and fire puts along the beautiful lake (with beautiful sunsets). It almost felt like a bed and breakfast, with a little more privacy. We will definitely return and I've told friends and family as we'll!

Room Tip: We were in room 208 with one queen bed and a couch and fireplace. Very cute!
