Carmel Cove Inn at Deep Creek Lake
Ranked #1 of 3 Swanton B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 28, 2013

The inn was beautiful. It's quiet, charming, and wonderful. The rooms are quiet and comfortable. The actual inn is super cute. Mary, the inn-keeper, was so hospitable and kind and made sure we felt welcomed. There are bikes, kayaks, and canoes to use at your leisure. Mary made a fire every night with marshmallows for roasting. The main lobby has tons of movies to watch, wine to drink and appetizers to eat before going out for dinner. It is right next to Deep Creek Lake state park so you can go hiking and exploring during the day. It was an amazing stay and I wish I had the time to stay longer.

My parents stayed here a few nights ago and they had nothing but rave reviews. Since I did the reservation and was there at check in my review is a combination of all of our experience (and I am jealous I did not stay there!). First making a reservation with Mary over the phone was a piece of cake. She remembered all sorts of details from the call so that the room was amazing and there was champagne chilling in a bucket when they arrived. She provided a great introductory tour to the property so they could get familiar with everything. I stayed to chill on their deck and enjoy a glass of wine. The common room had a stocked fridge and great snacks (and comfy chairs!). The stay was too short for them to enjoy the kayaks and the lake but the amount of extras available to guests was amazing (kayaks, canoes, fishing equipment, tennis!); however they enjoyed talking with other guests at the fire pit and at breakfast. Will definitely be back for a longer stay!

Great location, quiet and not on a main road. In the woods, but only a few minutes walk from the lake. The personal service was great, with appetizers in the evenings, beer and wine provided. They have 2 canoes, a two person kayak and a paddleboat at their dock for your use. Clean and the staff was very friendly. We will be back.

Room Tip: Get room 10. It is at one end of the building, large, quiet and has an exit right outside your door...

Stayed here based on reviews on this site. Must say that the Inn lived up to it's glowing reviews.
Mary, along with her son Joe (returning to college this week), have paid extra attention to little details that made our stay surpass my expectations. We took the brand new ocean kayak out twice. Wanted to make use of the mountain bikes, but never found the time. Next visit, maybe? Delicious breakfasts and enjoyed the 6:00pm hor dourves, the warm cookies, chocolates and port wine at 8:00, and of course the smores around the bonfires at 9:00!
If I had to find something wrong it would be that the shower temps changed often, from hot to cold. Just a little nuisance. And that the our room was small, but I expected that after reading some reviews. That said, I'd return for another stay at Carmel Cove Inn.

Room Tip: We stayed in terrace room 3

This was our first trip to Deep Creek Lake and to a Bed and Breakfast. I must say we had such an enjoyable 5 days at Carmel Cove. From the time we walked in the door until the time we left it was an incredible stay. Mary and Joe are two wonderful people and were so helpful with places to visit and always so friendly. Joe is an incredible cook, especially his strawberry hotcakes. YUM!!!!! Every breakfast that was served was superb. Plenty of activities to keep you occupied at the Inn alone. Met a lot of wonderful guests while we were there also. Sat around the camp fire at night and enjoyed making s'mores and even roasted hot dogs one night. Thanks Joe for joining us and for all the wonderful fires each night. Mary~thanks for all the hors devours and sweet treats. They were all delicious. Thanks to you and Joe for a wonderful vacation and you truly have a wonderful inn. Hoping to be back.

This was the most wonderful little weekend away we could have asked for. Very clean and updated lodge with plenty to do and see and some of the most excellent, home-away-from-home service you could ever want! We'll go back again and again!

The review by Mike S dated 7/30/13 says it all. We stayed 5 nights, July 21-26, and loved it. We don't like bed and breakfasts because we like our privacy. The Inn gave you the best of both worlds. So relaxing and enjoyable. We will definitely be back! Thanks to Mary and Joe for such great service.

Room Tip: Room #1 is the largest. Rooms 7 and 10 have fireplaces.
