About Us

Blue Moon Rising – Located in Deep Creek Lake Maryland

Our Green Team is dedicated to cultivating economic, environmental, and social sustainability.

In 2008, Blue Moon Risings’ visionary & founder Lisa M. Jan had the unique vision to integrate vacation rental properties and sustainable construction practices and techniques. Throughout the construction of our facility, we made decisions with the earth and its resources first, so we believe we have created a one-of-a-kind vacation experience while leaving as little impact on our natural landscape as possible.

A cornerstone of BMR is that nothing goes to waste. Each and every tree that was removed was carefully evaluated so that could be reused elsewhere on the project. Whether as trim, a support post, or simply as wood to fuel the highly efficient masonry stove, these trees have been given a new life in the fabric of BMR. The dirt removed during excavating foundations was carefully sifted and mixed with clay, water, and lime to become the natural plaster coatings on interior and exterior straw bale walls on our flagship building, “The Leap”.

With construction complete, we continue to apply earth 1st principals to the day to day operations of Blue Moon Rising.

The hallmark of Blue Moon Rising, the guiding principle in its every aspect, is to demonstrate that comfort and beauty need not be (and will not be) sacrificed for humans to live lightly on this, our only planet.
