It’s Summer Season at Blue Moon Rising

We are so excited to have our first Summer guests arrive to Blue Moon Rising since we have been temporarily closed since March to install the last 6 cabins and eco-friendly landscaping features.

Take a peek at some of the new cabins and some beautiful shots of Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County!

All 14 Cabins are on site!

It has been a long road to travel since breaking ground in 2008, but we finally have all 14 cabins on the property. Hobbitat has really out done themselves with these beautiful masterpieces. Hold tight as more progress , details, photos, and stories unfold!

Spring Construction Has Begun!

Today is a bright and sunny day here at Deep Creek Lake, and work outside and have begun. We are  installing a few of the outdoor showers. These showers will be installed at most of the cabins and were built by Hobbitat. Our crew has been busy planning our our next couple months of construction and landscaping. Expect to see a lot of new installations and features before we re-open in July!
