Comfort - Privacy - Relaxation. We often hear these words when people talk about the Savage River Lodge. Nestled within more than 700 acres of Western Maryland's Savage River State Forest, the lodge is a peaceful retreat from a busy world. Once you're here, you'll find all the elements of relaxation and comfort--fantastic food, sink-into accommodations, your own private cabin, and exceptional hospitality. Whether you prefer to watch nature from your rocking chair or spend your day in pursuit of your favorite outdoor activity, you'll take home the spirit of the forest...and the Savage River Lodge. Our eighteen luxury cabins and the nearby lodge building, surrounded by the forest, convey a rustic, lived-in comfort. Our amenities and appointments, however are decidedly upscale and infused with a genuinely friendly and relaxed hospitality.

We have been enjoying the hospitality of Savage Rive Lodge owners and staff for our last 5 Thanksgivings. Welcoming and warm, friendly staff and enjoyable guests (in years past). But this year was obviously different and sadly the only element missing was the people factor, interaction with the staff and guests, and gathering in the Lodge around the large fireplace, then having a wonderful family style dinner. BUT! _ The SRL staff planned and executed an extremely safe program with meals, including a tasty Thanksgiving dinner, with all the trimmings which led to two overstuffed guests, in our cabin. Meals were dropped off on the cabin/yurt porch and enjoyed inside our cabin (did not even have to dress up!) We asked and they delivered. Even Mike's outdoor fire pit was roaring, all of us socially distanced, including the herd of deer that meandered across the yard. We could not think of any way it could have been made any safer, and more enjoyable. 5 STARS SRL! Thank you

My wife and i spent a night in a yurt and had dinner for her birthday! The yurt was very comfortable and roomy! The furnishings were very nice! The dinner in the lodge restaurant that evening was as good as we have eaten for quite a long time. Our server and all the staff were very friendly. We can't wait to stay again!

After reading some recent reviews I was bit concnerned for our upcoming weekend away. But, luckily, the cabin lived up to what we were looking for.... a break in a safe environment. The cabin was roomy and provided space between other guests. Sure, there were a few cobwebs but it's a cabin in the woods. Should be expected. With that, I'd suggest you pack items to eat/drink while visiting. We stopped at Fire Fly Farms prior to arriving and got a beautiful meat and cheese plate for 2. That served as dinner with a bottle of wine we picked up the first night. We also had packed some breakfast treats, snacks and drinks. We did do dinner on the second night at the lodge even though the reviews were questionable... and it was just okay. (But the alternative was to drive 25 minutes...) Overall the space is beautiful. A few updates here and there will keep the cabins a draw. But again, plan your meals in advance or just set your expectations in line for dinner at the lodge.

The cabin was super cute that we stayed in and the kids loved it. There was plenty of room for social distancing and hiking on the trails. We did have to pay an additional fee for each child. When I called in advanced I asked about what steps they were taking related to the covid virus prevention. I was told that the housekeepers wear masks and gloves when they clean and all employees wear masks. I saw the house keepers multiple times going in and out of cabins and they were not wearing masks. They were talking and did not put a mask on going in and did not come out with a mask on either on a different days that I saw them. I did not see them wearing gloves. In addition, the employees who dropped off the morning muffin and spilled over orange juice were not wearing a mask and one of them was even smoking a cigarette. We called to request dinner and didn't feel comfortable going inside the restaurant. We were told on the the telephone when booking that they would deliver dinner to the cabin. When we tried to order dinner upon arrival, they said that they would not deliver dinner to the cabin. I asked them if they could bring curbside and just walk it outside for us. They said, "no". We drove about 30 minutes to Penn Alps for a good dinner that they brought out by curbside. The problem with going off of the property to eat is that the gravel road is really in bad shape getting in and out. It takes 15 minutes to drive the 1.5 mile and only one car can fit at a time. We had to find a place to pull off because a delivery truck was coming through. The cabin was cute and the place was cute, but we won't go back due to the lack of employees following covid policies and the restaurant is not accommodating to delivery at dinner or curbside pick up. And the road getting in and out of there is rough.

Was not sure what to expect based on the reviews, but had a good time. I think it’s important to note that there’s a difference between the Yurts and the cabins. Yurts seem to be cleaner and more upscale. Cons: The property during COVID seemed a bit of a ghost town and the owners were taking the opportunity to do repairs. The lodge was undergoing maintenance and it had random workers and tape blocking off areas. That was disappointing for the amount of money we spent. The delivered breakfast was a chocolate muffin and sour (rancid?) OJ. Good thing we packed a cooler. The coffee maker (French press) was not user friendly. A keurig would have been so much nicer. The yurt was extremely hot when we checked in. Had to take an hour to cool it off. Shower wall was rotting in one spot. (Yurt #4) Pros: the Yurt was really cool. Furnishings were great. Bed was super comfy. Pretty clean except for a few cobwebs. Loved heated floor. Walking trails. Amazing and peaceful. Really enjoyable. Deck outside yurt was extremely small and not private. Complimentary champagne was super small, but nice gesture. Quiet getaway. Suggestions: Stay in yurt. pack a cooler. Plan to hike/walk the trails behind the lodge. Bring a book or game or plan for conversations. Not much to do there. Eat at Cornucopia. Drive there. Don’t have food delivered. They are taking COVID-19 precautions and have outdoor seating. Stay only one night.
