If you are craving an adventure filled weekend of hiking and water activities on a lake or a romantic getaway, a cozy cabin is the perfect escape! Staycations are an amazing way to take a break from the normal routine of everyday humdrum without the time and expense of traveling to an international destination.
Tucked away in the hills surrounding Maryland's Deep Creek Lake are cozy cabins like Cedars on the Rocks that offer a scenic destination in the heart of several beautiful parks. The area is filled with trails leading to cascading waterfalls, numerous rentals offering boats and kayaks to explore the lake, but the best part is getting cozy by the fireplace surrounded by loved ones. Read on for five reasons you should take your own cabin getaway!
Disconnect with the world
Instead of being glued to the medium screens at work or the small screen in your hand with a large screen in the background at home, take a few days to unplug from the digital world. Curl up with a book by the fireplace or sip on your morning coffee on the deck enjoying a quiet morning. Give yourself a chance to disconnect and live in the present moment!
Explore the local parks and visit some of the hidden gems. Hiking trails, waterfalls, cross country skiing, canoeing, a zip line, golf courses, snow tubing, a mountain coaster and lots of wildlife fill the surrounding public land that is brimming with natural beauty. Swallow Falls State Park was only a few miles down the road and the well groomed trails made it easy to discover the numerous waterfalls. The woods filled with changing autumn leaves made the scenic trail even more post card perfect for the crisp fall hike.
Spending time with friends
Whether you go with friends or on a romantic getaway with your significant other, this is the perfect opportunity to reconnect with loved ones. Pull out some games from the bookshelf, snuggle up on the couch to watch a movie, or share some spiced cider by the fireplace while catching up!
Waking up to the natural light of sunshine coming through the large windows in the morning was the perfect start to the relaxing getaway. A steamy bubble bath in the whirlpool with a glass of wine were also essential ingredients to decompressing and enjoying the pause from reality.
Getting cozy by a fireplace
On a cold crisp day, it is hard to match the appeal of snuggling up in a warm blanket with a steaming mug (coffee in the morning and hard spiced cider in the evenings for me!) by a crackling fireplace. The numerous indoor and outdoor fireplaces offer beautiful options to get cozy while enjoying reading a new book or listening to the sounds of nature all around.
The Cedars on the Rocks was the perfect place to spend a weekend disconnecting from all the demanding responsibilities of life and reconnecting with friends. In the spacious, cozy and modern cabin with a clean Nordic interior design, Cedars on the Rocks was the perfect blend of all modern conveniences in a secluded location. It is a charming destination to spend the holidays or simply enjoy a beautiful weekend escape!
