Certificate of Excellence
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.

Great time at Blue Moon. The staff was excellent and made us feel at home. We would definitely go back and hope to return in the warmer weather. We would like to have a chance to have a camp fire and hike more, it was raining when we were there. There was still plenty to do

The cabins at Blue Moon are adorable and nestled in the trees on a hill overlooking Deep Creek Lake. The accomidations are clean and comfortable. The staff are kind and helpful. I highly recommend Blue Moon if you want to relax and unwind in nature.

We stayed in Orion and absolutely loved it. It had a tasteful, quirky decor and all the essentials! We ate at Blue Moon Cafe multiple times because the menu was so robust and there isn’t a bad thing on it. BMR is also close to Swallow Falls which is a great area to hike and

This is a great property, close to the heart of Deep Creek Lake, yet tucked away from the road so you feel like you are in the heart of nature. We stayed in Walden - it was clean, had everything we needed. Our cabin had a really good sized bathroom. From watching tiny house

This was our first time at BMR and I loved everything about it. The cabins were charming and just right for our family of three. I felt my stress level drop as soon as I walked in. The tiny house neighborhood was cool and welcoming at the same time. We had awesome neighbors and

Upper loft bed: nice.
No. You are relatively close to places that I assume have rentals, but Blue Moon does not have anything like that available (at least when we were there.)

No. But in the deep creek area, they generally aren't necessary.

There are a couple cabins that do not have a loft and there is one ADA cabin which is more easily accessible if that is the concern. Here are some suggestions MoonShadow Orion Blue Sky (ADA compliant but also has a loft)

We enjoyed the 2 short walks on property. There are several state parks within 30 minutes with hiking we intend to investigate next time.

"Slippers make it cozy "
"Pack light! There isn't a lot of space, so keep it simple. Wi-fi is spotty, so be ready to disconnect. "
"We stayed in Blue Sky to be next door to family. Very comfortable!"
"You can't go wrong with any of the cabins. Some have a bit of a view of the lake, and all have views of woods."
"Found having an electric griddle was great for making a family of four meals."
