25 Places to Stay, From the Mountains to the Shore
Whether you’re seeking the brisk mountain air of Western Maryland, the fun-in-the-sun of Ocean City, the historical and cultural attractions in the Central and Capital regions, or some quiet time in the southern part of the state, you can find top-notch accommodations close by. From homey Victorian inns to rustic lodges to elegant, art-filled hotels, Maryland has something to suit your lodging needs.
Here are 25 places to consider the next time you’re searching for a room, campsite, or cabin to rest your head during your travels.
1 Carmel Cove Inn, Deep Creek Lake
If you’re looking for that “Zen” experience, stay at this former monastery nestled in the quiet woods of Deep Creek Lake. Sit around the nightly bonfires. Meet fellow travelers in the inn’s common room. Enjoy the complimentary use of bikes, fishing gear, cross-country skis and more. Guests also receive a full breakfast and beverage bar.
2 Deep Creek Rentals
Put the car keys away and get ready to relax because the Deep Creek experience brings you back to nature. Choose from a plethora of rental properties from companies including Railey Mountain Lake Vacations and Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations. Coldwell Banker Deep Creek Realty’s Water’s Edge is aptly named, as the lake gently laps at the property’s dock. Walk to nearby shops and restaurants, or grill some dinner and chill out by the fire pit. For true tranquility, enjoy the stunning views from Cabin in the Woods. After a long day of boating or skiing, spend the evening star-gazing from your hot tub.
3 The Inn at Red Hill, Keedysville
Hidden in the northern end of the Blue Ridge Mountains and overlooking the Antietam National Battlefield, this B&B provides you with easy access to the C&O Canal and Appalachian Trails, and gives you the sustenance (food and otherwise) you’ll need for your explorations.
4 Little Orleans Campground
Choose from tent and RV sites as well as cabins for rent at this campground located on 222 acres of land in the upper Potomac River valley. It’s the perfect home base for a day of hiking, horseback riding, or boating. There’s even a fishing pond on the property.
