We really enjoyed our stay for my birthday. We agree with other reviews that the room was quite small and walls paper thin and not well insulated. But it was also very clean, cozy and comfortable. The balcony was a very convenient way to smoke and had a very nice view. The mid afternoon checkout was great but cost us...

Amy, our apologies for the "surprise ending" to your birthday weekend. As our front desk hostess mentioned, each room does have its own dedicated 25 gallon water heater. We made the decision to have dedicated water heaters in each room to limit a single room's excessive water use from impacting the rest of the lodge guests. Based on available data,...

We stayed in the "two queen beds" room, so no fireplace, but it accommodated four of us nicely. The bamboo floors and furniture pieces are lovely.The beds are firm but comfortable. The entire room was extremely clean, with housekeeping attending daily. The bathroom was supplied with soap, shampoo/conditioner, and a small hairdryer. The view of the lake is beautiful. There's...

The room at LakeStar was super clean and very cozy. Nice view of lake and ski slopes across the lake. Fireplace added to the ambiance. Staff is friendly and helpful. Coffee in the room would be the only thing I would add. Would definitely stay here again.

Our stay at the Lakestar Lodge was cozy and comfortable. All rooms have views of the lake, and ours had a small fireplace which added to the fall/winter ambiance. Staff were helpful and quick when checking in and out. Only comment/concern was the wifi, which did not work consistently.

Great location and room. Enjoyed the Queen room with fireplace, overlooking the lake. The staff was very friendly, and the room was very clean and enjoyable. The location is right across from Wisp resort, and located near several fun restaurants in the town. I would definitely go back and stay here!

This was our first time to the Deep Creek Lake area and we were lucky to have found the LakeStar Lodge. We stayed in the suite which has 3 bedrooms, a living area, and kitchenette. It was perfect for our family. Plenty of room. The suite was really clean, the rooms cozy and comfortable, and we loved having coffee on...

I love it here! When we arrived, there was soft music playing in the room, nice touch. The rooms are cozy and have a slight rustic feel to them. We stayed in a room with a fireplace and it was fabulous. The rooms are updated and feel super clean and well taken care of. I love the bathroom decor and...

My husband surprised me with a weekend getaway and made the arrangements himself. We visit Deep Creek every year in the fall with with a group of friends and always rent a house. Since the trip was canceled this year my husband needed to find a smaller place for the two of us. He took a chance on LakeStar because...

We stayed here to celebrate my husband's birthday with a weekend getaway. It was a clean, nice room with a great view of the lake. The place was quiet, even on Saturday, when it seemed pretty full. Staff was very nice and polite. Would definitely stay here again, if we visit the area.
