In addition to the 14 miles of hiking trails on property (21 miles with snow cover), the Lodge offers snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and geocaching all winter long! And for guests looking to pick up a new hobby, full equipment rental and guided instruction for winter sports is included for anyone who should need it, one hour cross-country skiing lessons are offered throughout the season as well.
Besides the activities the Lodge has on property, its location in the Allegheny Mountains – with an average snowfall of 225 inches each year – places guests amid a mecca for winter sports. Visitors are just miles away from world-class downhill skiing and snowboarding for all experience levels. The area also offers sledding, ice skating rinks and snowmobile rentals and trails. For a more relaxing option, the Lodge can assist with booking a winter horse-drawn sleigh ride for couples or small groups.
After a day of outdoor fun, guests are invited into the Lodge to enjoy a drink in front of the fireplace from the fully-stocked bar or award-winning wine list, or dine in the Lodge’s gourmet restaurant. You can expect spacious accommodations when retreating back to the cabin, with a bedroom made up with luxury linens, sitting area with gas-log fireplaces and sink-into furnishings. The Lodge even offers in-cabin massages from licensed massage therapists, with prior appointment, to ease tired muscles after a day out in the snow.
Don’t miss this beautiful time of year in Western Maryland! Whether you’re looking for an action-packed winter sports weekend, picking up a new hobby, or looking to relax and enjoy the scenery, the Savage River Lodge has everything in place to create a carefree mountain getaway.
