After a rough start to the weekend (arriving to an impassable road, being directed to a parking spot that was not a parking spot, getting my car stuck on the ice trying to turn around to a new parking spot, waiting a very long time for a shuttle, general impression of disorganization) the lodge itself was very nice. The staff...

Having spent last Christmas at the SRL my wife and I decided to celebrate New Years in one of their Yurts. Our hope was to relax among the forest setting and enjoy a day or two of hikes among the trails. All of our hopes for spending a mellow weekend came to a crashing (literally) end on the journey along...

Eric - Much as we iterated to Melissa, we do appreciate you taking the time to review us. Again, we are very surprised to hear such a negative review since nothing of the sort was communicated to us during the numerous trips that Mike spent shuttling you in and out to make arrangements. While I personally, was not there moment...

My husband and I just got back from a horrific experience at Savage River Lodge. We arrived at 2:30pm on Friday, December 30th for a three day (the holiday minimum) stay in a yurt. Check in time is 3pm. It had been snowing on and off all day there and as we reached the entrance to SRL at the top...

Hello Melissa D - Thank you for the feedback. We have to say, we are quite shocked that you and Eric both left these very damning reviews. The owner Mike interacted with you and Eric repeatedly and reports that nothing negative in the slightest was said to him during those interactions. Most of which, were spent shuttling you in and...

This is a rather long review, but worth the read. Savage River Lodge is a great place for a weekend (or longer) get away. We've stayed here before and loved it. We've stayed in the cabins and the yurts - and prefer the yurts. If you get a yurt, request one that is not right along the road because it...

As stated in title, this was our third trip to SRL. We have stayed in a cabin and yurt before. We have read their website and their emails and we take a 4x4 truck. Upon entering the main entrance (at 4:00pm --- you can check in as early as 3pm), there is a traffic jam. It snowed maybe 4 inches....

Hello mink20162016, Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. Unfortunately, that day we received eight inches of snow. The wait was due to a car accident, it was simply not safe to let any cars try to navigate past the wrecked car. Much like on the highway when someone crashes their car, there are usually delays. We understand...

To be fair, I did read the cancellation policy when I booked the cabin a month or so in advance. I did not, however, receive a a subsequent email or telephone call from the lodge with a second confirmation; something I have become used to from most quality accommodations. Unfortunately, I had written the dates incorrectly, so to my dismay,...

Leo loved the wooden carved bear. Dinner was excellent as usual. The filet was one of the best I have had. My husband loved the meatloaf. The crab dip was amazing. A great place for a nice family dinner.

We went there for a weekend and had a wonderful time. The cabin we stayed in was warm and cozy. I've never slept in a more comfortable bed. The staff is very friendly. The restaurant is good. Be sure to bring snacks because the restaurant doesn't stay open late. Good hiking!

How cool! I wasn't entirely sure what to expect with the yurt. I'm not an outdoorsey person, don't like to camp, and don't like bugs. I'm a girly-girl. This was absolutely perfect! So glad we chose to stay in yurt #8. Just love the heated floors, the sound of the rain and wind. Even though I'm a light sleeper, it...

This was our second visit. The cabins are out in the middle of nowhere (SUV is a must in winter) which means that it's completely quiet and tranquil. The wind at night sounds like ocean waves which was so cool. They have a main lodge within walking distance which has a great restaurant. You can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Comfort - Privacy - Relaxation. We often hear these words when people talk about the Savage River Lodge. Nestled within more than 700 acres of Western Maryland's Savage River State Forest, the lodge is a peaceful retreat from a busy world. Once you're here, you'll find all the elements of relaxation and comfort--fantastic food, sink-into accommodations, your own private cabin, and exceptional hospitality. Whether you prefer to watch nature from your rocking chair or spend your day in pursuit of your favorite outdoor activity, you'll take home the spirit of the forest...and the Savage River Lodge. Our eighteen luxury cabins and the nearby lodge building, surrounded by the forest, convey a rustic, lived-in comfort. Our amenities and appointments, however are decidedly upscale and infused with a genuinely friendly and relaxed hospitality. ... more   less
