Blue Moon Rising – Located in Deep Creek Lake Maryland
Each cabin has a unique design and personality, and we hope that our residents enjoy each one for its distinct characteristics. The cabins were built locally in Cranesville, MD by our friends at Hobbitat. What Hobbitat builders have done is create livable works of art. Each cabin is lovingly constructed out of primarily reclaimed materials, holding to the sustainability mission of BMR. Bill Thomas and his team carefully crafted the spaces to fully capture what Garrett County Living is all about. Although roughly all the same size (250-300 sq. ft.) each of the 14 have original floor layouts and surprising features conjured by the minds at Hobbitat. 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 cabins provide the best possible use of space for your vacation; a space to rest before your outdoor adventures, and then to relax and reflect afterwards. We have many photos below and on our photos page to help you find the tiny house rental that’s right for you.
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 strive to work within the three R’s, Reclaimed, Recycled, or Recyclable.
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.
