Savage River Lodge

Savage River Lodge is hidden in Maryland's largest state forest, nestled on a wooded 45-acre plot.  There  are 18 cozy, one room log cabins built in 1998, each with a porch with rocking chairs and modern furnishings.  The cabins each sleep up to four comfortably and feature a sleeping loft with down-clad queen bed, overstuffed furniture in the first floor sitting room (including a queen sleeper sofa), ceiling fans, an oversized soaking tub with shower and two sinks, Most appointments, lighting fixtures, and cabinetry, are handcrafted by local artisans. Unique cabin amenities include forest-scented toiletries, an umbrella for two, and fresh half-and-half in a small, hidden refrigerator (there are no kitchen facilities) to accompany the gourmet hot beverage center. All cabins are non-smoking.

Poshbrood stayed here with a small child (we brought our pack n' play) and two dogs in a pet-friendly cabin (with advanced notice only). We loved the cozy cabin and enjoyed leisurely reading by the fire while it spitted rain and our daughter was napping.

Morning brings a picnic basket delivered to your cabin door (love that -- trying to find a way to get that service at home) containing juice and muffins which we ate by the fire in our pajamas.

The main three-story lodge is only a short stroll from the private cabins, with a towering stone fireplace that splits the room. The lodge houses a country restaurant, bar, common room, games, puzzles and is the hub of activity. The restaurant offers a bar menu and fine dining.  We ate at the bar one evening and the restaurant the next.  Both meals were excellent and the staff accommodated some special requests for our toddler but the Lodge asks that families with small children dine on the early side.

With access to over 13 miles of trails, a native trout stream and a diverse wildlife population, guests at the Savage River Lodge are encouraged to experience nature firsthand.  We went hiking and met another family with a five year old and it was their third stay. There is hiking, biking, cross country skiing, in room massage, snowshoeing and fly fishing onsite and horseback riding, downhill skiing, whitewater rafting among other activities offsite. 

That said, the cabins do not have TVs and the general atmosphere is one serenity and relaxation of so if you have a crew that needs a barrage of constant activity, this might not be the place for you. Poshbrood will definitely be back!

Nightly rates for two in a luxury cabin, breakfast basket and Lodge facilities begin at $220.
