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. today.

Classy gateaway at Deep Creek
Really cute cabins tucked into the woods. Peaceful, yet still close to all the attractions, ie lake, ski mountain and state parks. We really liked the communal layout and environmentally friendly practices. Customer services were also on point.

From the moment you arrive, Blue Moon Rising is a transformative space. Everything has been thought out with such precision, it's impossible not to have your breath taken away. Once you check in the team comes to your vehicle and grabs all your belongings to place on a golf cart. You are then driven in the cart up to your tiny home. When riding in the car there's a small road for the cart to drive and drop you off directly on the porch of your home. It feels like fairy tale!
Skya (the cabin) was absolutely wonderful. The loft bed area over looking the kitchen makes for an interactive space. The trails on the property are gorgeous and listening to birds while walking along is deeply soothing. Waking up in the morning and enjoying a cup of coffee on the porch is really all you can ask for.
At Blue Moon Rising there are several communal spaces to join and meet your neighbors. Both the welcome center and the Phoenix building have communal kitchens and large tables for family meals, games, or a cup of tea. In the fronts of Phoenix and Kaya you will find fire rings for gathering. We found these spaces to be remarkable and plan to bring our family in the future.
The location itself is arguably one of the best in the state of Maryland. Blue Moon Rising sits on the shore of Deep Creek Lake, which is a beautiful site in any season. In the summer you can rent boats, jet ski’s, etc. In the winter this turns into a skiers paradise.
If you're looking for an enjoyable destination that is sure to yield fond memories and hilarious stories, this is your place!
