The spirit of the Blue Moon Rising Village is that of a community. We invite you to experience the beauty of Deep Creek Lake while staying in one of our cabin rentals. Appropriately named Waldens, after the American masterpiece by Henry David Thoreau, our vacation rentals complement the natural landscape of our site, and encourage a sense of community throughout.
Each Walden has a unique design and personality, and we hope that our residents enjoy each one for its distinct characteristics. The Waldens were built locally in Cranesville, MD by our friends at Hobbitat. They are primarily built out of locally sourced reclaimed lumber. Bill Thomas and his team carefully crafted the spaces to fully capture what Garrett County Living is all about. While each centimeter of space is as valuable as the next, the design creatively fits the comforts of home into a cabin in the woods. Built in the vein of the tiny home movement, our Waldens provide the best possible use of space for your vacation; a space to rest before your outdoor adventures, and then to relax and reflect afterward.
The building materials have been carefully selected to fit our mission of an environmentally sustainable community. Every material and construction decision is weighed against its impact on the earth. With this in mind we work within the three R’s, Reclaimed, Recycled, or Recyclable.
In line with our low impact mission, parking will only be available at the entrance to the Village. There will be no car exhaust, intruding headlights, or slamming car doors to disturb the peace of the Waldens. Solar-powered transportation will be provided for luggage and guests from the parking area up to the community.
