The dog friendly destination is nestled amongst picturesque trees and Deep Creek Lake, with unreal views to enjoy in this part of West Maryland. Deep Creek Lake is one of Maryland’s leading resort spots, and I guarantee it will became a favorite for you and yours.
Guest review: “Absolutely stunning views, especially when it snowed! The place is peaceful and very private. The cabins are beautifully designed and interesting – everything is purposeful yet simple. Although the extras they provide are a bit limited (must bring toothpaste, toothbrush, paper towels, and shampoo – just an FYI to those who don’t usually pack these items), it wasn’t really a big deal to me as I usually bring it, and it’s also because part of their mission is to reduce pollution. It was quite interesting to read about how parts of the cabin were recycled from old structures. Overall it was really a magical experience, a perfect getaway from busy life and a safe way to have a vacation during COVID. I’ll surely be back in the future, everyone must experience this!” – Raph
11) Canal Trust Lockhouses

There are so far seven lockhouses the Canal Trust have renovated and updated into cozy and cute stays all over Montgomery County, Maryland.

It is equipped with a queen bed inside and a camp table, chairs, a fire pit, grill, sun shower and camp bathroom outside. Aforementioned Deep Creek Lake is just 15 minutes away.
Guest review: “Great stay at Trout Meadow! The site was secluded, but very easy to access. You can hear the nearby stream from the tent, which creates a relaxing atmosphere. Access to the stream is also very easy from several points. The hosts even refreshed our firewood after the first night. And last but not least, the hosts also gifted us a delicious blueberry coffee cake from a local bakery. Highly recommend this site!” – Michael
13) ROYAL BLUE CABOOSE at Annapolis Junction Md. 20724
Airbnb Plus: No
Price: $100+ USD per night
If you love renovated and refurbished trains, you can’t go past this fantastic caboose in Laurel, Maryland. Pack your sleeping bag, pick up some fire wood, and head to this train glamping getaway that is equipped with three beds of varying sizes, a potbelly stove, a bathroom and a whole lot of character. This is a quiet city located between Washington DC and Baltimore.
Guest review: This train is absolutely adorable and completely restored with the original furnishings, such a sight to see! I am in love with trains and railroad history so this was a total blast for me. One thing to note, if you come in the fall/winter, it can get very cold, so bring firewood to run the potbelly stove and know how to use it first! We had such an amazing time and can’t wait to come back!!” – Katie
