Starting December 4th and lasting until December 18th, we are hosting a great deal on Living Social.com
Escape Kit at BMR
The seasons may change in McHenry, Maryland, but the outdoor activities remain constant. Located three hours from Baltimore on the banks of Deep Creek Lake, McHenry and the rest of Garrett County receive an average 120 inches of snow in the winter and can stay about 10 degrees cooler than the surrounding area in the summer. So, whether you’re skiing snow-packed slopes, hiking leaf-lined trails, or swimming in deep-blue waters, forecasts predict just the right weather for the adventure.
Mirroring the beautiful landscape surrounding it, Blue Moon Rising offers an eco-friendly Escape into the mountainside. With a commitment to sustainable living, this wilderness retreat places guests in one-of-a-kind cabins carefully crafted using reclaimed, recycled, recyclable, or sustainably sourced materials. Inside you’ll find all the comforts of home, such as a mini fridge and NuWave cooktop, full bathroom with a shower, and free Wi-Fi—and most importantly, a stunning view of Deep Creek Lake. Take it all in after a refreshing walk on one of the winding hiking trails across the property, and refuel for the next day with a meal at MoonShadow Café & Bar, serving locally sourced food and craft beers in a lively atmosphere with live entertainment.
We had a blast a few weeks ago at the Oakland/Mt. Lake Park Lion’s Club Dodgeball tournament, despite finishing in 6th place. Talk about a team building exercise!
We have decided to extend our availability through the holidays.
We have been operating from Thursday-Monday since we opened in early September at an introductory rate as we are still under light construction. From December 19th through January 6th you can stay for as long as you want and still at the introductory rate of $169 per night. Come spend the holidays at Deep Creek Lake. Don’t forget that we are pet friendly!
Last weekend our good friend, Karlo Gesner of Karlo Photography got treated to the Blue Moon Rising experience. He snapped some pics and shared them with us. We are excited to share them with you!
We have a few camp fire rings on site. With permission, we will set you up with enough wood to stoke the fire through the evening. These are the moments we live fore. Come make some memories at Blue Moon Rising.
Blue Moon Rising is kid and pet friendly.
In the summer of 2014 we plan to introduce programming for the whole family. Let us entertain the children with guided nature hikes, stick shelter fort builds, creative art classes, games, and more.
Bring your dog too. We are pet friendly if your pet’s friendly!
Blue Moon Rising has 2 new Waldens available for rent at the introductory price of $169 a night.
We are proud to release MoonShadow and Kaya! Use our booking engine to reserve your stay.
From the cul-de-sac on the top of the hill a private cart path leads to Moon Shadow. Cedar shakes contrast boldly with the black board and baton siding that surround the bay window. An antique half- door stands out, under the tin roof of the porch, overlooking an oak-hickory forest. Designed for two Moon shadow has a queen size bed off the gathering area, and an expanded bathroom to accommodate for a claw foot bathtub. As with all the Waldens, here at Blue Moon, care has been taken to use eco-friendly products, from our bamboo countertops to the hand crafted light fixtures. Get closer to the one you love by getting away from everything else, hide-a-way at Moon shadow.
Overlooking the community from the front porch, the afternoon sun warms Kaya’s reclaimed unique combination of reclaimed metal and wood exterior. Nestled under a curved corrugated metal ceiling the interior layout is perfect for a couple looking to get away and relax. Kaya’s kitchen offers a perfect spot to look out into nature while preparing your food. Bill and Bruce from Hobbitat have created some lighting fixtures out of reclaimed materials that are cool and functional. Out back under the pines a fire pit and picnic area get you away from the day to day.
More photos to come!
