About the property

The Brookie Cottage is a 2 bedroom fully equipped home in a beautiful setting on the Savage River near Deep Creek Lake, Maryland. The Savage is a cold water mountain stream that is ranked by Trout Unlimited as one of the top 100 streams in the country for Fly Fishing for wild trout. You will have access to 1000 feet of beautiful river front in an old forest setting and Savage River Outfitters next door is a full service Fly Shop with guide services and discounted rates for Orvis clothing and Fly Fishing gear. Hiking and biking are right out the front door, with mountain and river trails. Other rivers, such as the North Branch of the Potomac, the Casselman and the Yock are nearby, as well as some of the best wild Brook Trout streams in the country. Kayak or canoe on Savage River Lake/Reservoir just a few minutes away, or visit Deep Creek Lake 12 miles away. If you are looking for a getaway without all of the congestion and noise of Deep Creek Lake, take a look at the Savage River and all it has to offer. There is plenty of green, grassy space out back along the river to relax, explore, play and fish.

Well maintained and stocked cottage. As advertised!

  • 5 of 5

Property was conveniently located, scenic and tidy. Nice babbling brook and quiet solitude capped it off. Mike is a nice guy, full of good local tips and chatty without being obtrusive. Will stay here again.

great place, friendly, helpful hosts, right on the lower savage river. Very comfortable accommodations, very close to many great trout fishing locations (as well as for hikers, kayakers, and birders).

Beautiful River cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the Brookie Cottage, a great, relaxing week! The cabin was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Mike and Suzanne were great hosts! We enjoyed playing yard games in the large back yard and loved the evening fires along the river. It is a perfect place to go if you want to get away from a hectic life. We spent time fishing, kayaking at a nearby lake and reading and hated to leave. We would recommend this cottage to anyone interested in a peaceful, relaxing time away!

Wonderful Adventurous Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Brookie Cottage! There was an abundant amount of fishing, nature, hiking and sunshine! The cottage was very clean and was a perfect fit for our family. Charlie was extremely helpful and friendly and even helped us with some fishing techniques. Hiking the Savage Mountain trail isn't for the faint of heart, but we really enjoyed the challenge. We look forward to staying again in the future!

Great place!

  • 3 of 5

Great place!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Nice little cabin! Stayed here for 3 nights with my family (wife, 6 year old and mom). Great location with plenty of great fishing all up and down the river. LOVE the river, the fire pit, the chairs and the grill. Beautiful weather and comfy night rest.

Great location to get to state parks, lakes and Deep Creek Lake. We traveled a great deal and it was nice to get back to a peaceful place!

I'd rate this place higher but it was my intent to do some fishing and I wanted to actually do a day with a guide but...nobody was around. Fly shop closed the whole time. This was a bummer...The son of the owner was in and out a bit and was a great kid. Helpful and nice. One sore spot, we had to buy trash bags and toilet paper.

Would come out here again - next time, maybe a day of fly fishing! I will call ahead!
