Recent Swanton vacation rental reviews

This house has a beautiful view of the lake and the inside decorations/amenities were just perfect
Lee G. | Mar 2024
This home was absolutely amazing! Check in was easy, house was clean and beautifully decorated. We had everything we needed. Our favorite parts were all the fireplaces & firepits (everything worked!) The copper tub was stunning, the master bed was very comfortable, gorgeous sunset views and we had no idea the bathrooms had heated floors... loved that. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back!
Brenda S. | Feb 2024
The house is really lovely and in the perfect location for nature lovers. Everything was clean and it was well-stocked for cooking. The beds are comfortable as are the sheets, towels, and the furniture. We loved being right next to the state park and spent a lot of time hiking and exploring the woods. You are in easy walking distance to the nature center and beach or you could drive down the street. The hot tube is huge! We had a large group but there was plenty of room for everyone. We would love to come back again.

Where is Swanton, MD?

Swanton is located in the sparsely populated western panhandle of Maryland, in the heart of the Eastern Deciduous Forest. Despite its remoteness, it remains easily accessible from many of the East Coast's major cities (two hours from Pittsburgh, and a little over three from Baltimore and Washington DC), making it a peaceful escape from the bustle of urban life.

Things to do in Swanton, MD

With a population of only 58 people, Swanton's tiny size belies its enormous variety of year-round outdoor activities. Within a 15-mile radius, you'll find Maryland's tallest free-flowing waterfall (Muddy Creek Falls, at 54 feet), its largest lake (Deep Creek Lake, with 69 miles of shoreline), and its biggest state park (Savage River State Forest, with 54,000 acres of densely wooded hills). 

These spectacular natural areas have endowed the region with a reputation as an all-season recreational mecca. In the winter, head north to Wisp Mountain, where you can ski, snowboard, and bobsled down a 700-foot vertical drop. In the summer, choose between boating, hiking, mountain biking, fly-fishing, or white-water rafting - to name just a few! Be sure to also stop by the quaint, nearby town of Oakland, where you'll find numerous antique stores, farmers markets, and outdoor festivals.

When you're looking for a country retreat away from the noise of the big city, our vacation rentals in Swanton offer a relaxing and refreshing change of pace. Book a stay and get back to nature!
