Meet Our GM - Lori Nelson
Q: What makes the Deep Creek area a unique vacation destination?
A: If you’re looking for summer fun like boating, water skiing, swimming or fishing, you will find it all in the waters of Deep Creek Lake. If you are seeking the perfect destination for viewing the fall foliage or visiting to enjoy the Autumn Glory Festival, Garrett County is the place to be. Or, if you want to wait for winter, you can enjoy skiing, snowboarding and ice skating at Wisp Mountain, the Mid-Atlantic’s premiere ski resort. There is also fly fishing and rafting tours (either on the manmade course at the Adventure Sports Center or on the beautiful Youghiogheny River) available during the spring, summer and fall. Deep Creek is a true year-round destination.
Q: What is your favorite area restaurant?
A: The Cornish Manor Restaurant is definitely worth the short trip into Oakland to experience. It’s an old Victorian home turned into a restaurant. They serve the best filet in the county, and their warm chicken salad in a bread bowl for lunch is to die for!
Q: If you could only choose one local attraction that is a must-see, what would it be?
A: Swallow Falls State Park without a doubt! We are blessed to be the home of the largest waterfall in the state of Maryland. In addition, there are two other waterfalls in the park.
Q: What is your background in the hospitality industry?
A: I have been in the hotel/vacation rental industry for over 8 years. The majority of this time has been spent in the Deep Creek area.
Q: How long have you been the GM at Inn at Deep Creek?
A: I’m a newbie! Just began in late April 2016.
Q: What is your favorite room at Inn at Deep Creek and why?
A: The entire staff really likes Room 109. It’s a King Executive room nestled in the back of the building with a great view of the lake and stream. It’s also an easy walk to the pool in the summer months.
Q: What makes Inn at Deep Creek different from surrounding hotels?
A: Our new mission here at the Inn at Deep Creek is for the Inn and its staff to become a large part of our guest's vacation experience. Our staff is well-educated on all the local surrounding activities and sites. Our lobby and common area décor reflect all the wonderful attributes the county and lake area offer. In addition, we have the prime location at Deep Creek Lake.
