The Lodges at Sunset Village in Deep Creek, Maryland

Diana at the lodges

At the end of October Diana and I took my parents to Deep Creek, Maryland for a little fall foliage trip. We took the cages but it was a scouting mission for future motorcycle trips and possibly a future state HOG Rally. I have never spent any time in Garrett County, Maryland. Being the western most portion of the state it is mountainous and borders Pennsylvania and West Virginia… actually it’s more like Maryland comes to an end and then Garrett County is an island of Maryland within West Virginia. I thought I had never been through the area but I was wrong. We came through on our way back from our West Virginia trip in 2008. The area is gorgeous and the riding is great. We took a little road trip in the Mustang with the top down. We followed Rt 219 into Monongahela National Forest in West Virgina. On the way back to Deep Creek we stopped to see Muddy Creek Falls at Swallow Falls State Park.

We stayed at the Lodges at Sunset Village. Best way to describe the lodges would be as upscale luxurious cabins. We rented a two bedroom two bath cabin that had three queen size beds and a sleeper sofa. That means the cabin we rented for less than $300 for the night sleeps eight. Not bad if you wanted to take an overnight ride with four couples to stay in Deep Creek. The view from the cabin was of the lake and Wisp Ski Resort. In comparison to staying at a motel we enjoyed the amenities such as the propane fireplace, large flat screen tv, kitchenette with large microwave and full size fridge. Doorfront parking was very convenient.

We took a scenic drive from my parents place in Frederick to Deep Creek. We parked at the cabin and unloaded my parents and our supplies into the cabin. My parents loved the cabin and didn’t leave it til check out time. Mom enjoyed the view from the love seat on the front porch. Dad settled into a chair on the back patio and enjoyed the relaxation. We took our drive into West Virgina to see the windmill farms and saw the waterfall on the way back. Then we came back to the cabin and heated up our dinner. We drank beer and wine and played card games in front of the fireplace. I can’t describe in words how nice the cabin was. Check out the below pics and all our pictures on Flicker by clicking here

Regarding the cabins. If you want to check in before 4:00pm you will have to pay a little extra for early check in.
