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.

It was our first time. We were introduced to BMR by my sister’s family who have been several times before. Its a beautiful location with great facilities. We spent two of our four days skiing at Wisp.

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 the Walden house. My family of 4 loved it. It is surprisingly spacious on the inside and great looking on the outside. The shower was the highlight for us- utilizing tin roof material that was a fantastic twist. The weather was horrible with rain pouring- this

We really enjoyed our stay at Blue Moon Rising. The cabins are quaint and unique and we enjoyed the downtime the property afforded. We stayed in Sugar Magnolia and Luna Bleu and liked each for different reasons. Sugar Magnolia has a nice built in booth, which was nice to play

Cairn Cabin
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.)

"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."
"Choose a tiny house higher up on the hill although all of them are adorable."
"Bring something to wrap your leftovers. "
