This was my husband and Is second stay and blue moon rising and we were equally impressed both times. The cabins and grounds are so well kept! The stay is friendly as well. Would definitely would recommend if you're looking for a quite place to stay. There's nightlight communal campfires too. Great for couples, families and or single ppl.

We have been interested in staying at BMR for several years, having been researching the tiny house movement. The Hob (the name for the small cottages) that we stayed in was solid and well-constructed-no half measures here on the quality of the building. The design gave a spacious feeling despite the fact that the cabin was only about 225 square... More

2 young teens and I stayed here to check out the area and go rafting. If you like "Tiny Houses" on HGTV or quirky this is the place. The kids loved the uniqueness of the place and our cabin. The first night only 1 other cabin was occupied so we checked out the others to pick favorites. We also did... More

This place has 14 tiny home cabins. We stayed in Blue Sky and I can't recommend this place enough. If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing get away this is the place to stay. They are dog friendly and environmentally friendly. I have never been as relaxed as I have after staying here for 2 days. The staff... More

My husband and I went for Memorial weekend, and had a great time. It is a beautiful place, and very peaceful and relaxing. Can't beat sitting on the porch in rocking chairs, and just enjoying nature. The cabin was "tiny", but for two people, and a dog- it really was a lot of space. Plenty of local state parks for... More

We stayed in Bella Donna for a night because it was half way between our houses and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It's very unique and has some charming touches. The staff was helpful and courteous and was always there to help carry bags and give rides up the hill. We will be back!

The architecture and vision for this site is unique. The eco cabins are beautiful, comfortable and have obvious attention to detail. The community buildings and common areas are simply magical. Our family had such a peaceful time here! We hope to return soon.

Blue Moon Rising is an amazing, charming place to stay. Very unique tiny houses! We stayed in Bella Donna. It was quiet and relaxing. The tiny houses were very clean, had absolutely everything we needed. We will be returning for each season. It was beautiful there!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The spirit of the Blue Moon Rising Village is that of a community. We invite you to come experience the beauty of Deep Creek Lake while staying in one of our cabins. Appropriately named Waldens, after the American masterpiece by Henry David Thoreau, our vacation rentals complement the natural landscape of our site, and encourage a sense of community throughout.Each Walden has a unique design and personality, and we hope that our residents enjoy each one for its distinct characteristics. The Waldens were built locally in Cranesville, MD by our friends at Hobbitat. They are primarily built out of locally sourced reclaimed lumber. Bill Thomas and his team carefully crafted the spaces to fully capture what Garrett County Living is all about. While each centimeter of space is as valuable as the next, the design creatively fits the comforts of home into a cabin in the woods. Built in the vein of the tiny home movement, our Waldens provide the best possible use of space for your vacation; a space to rest before your outdoor adventures, and then to relax and reflect afterwards. ... more   less
