Swanton, Maryland
The 3 Bedroom Rainbow Chalet is located on the Savage River in Western Maryland and about 20 minutes from Deep Creek Lake. This is a very comfortable home with spectacular views of the river and Savage River State forest from the back deck and bedroom balconies. You will be in a very beautiful place full of wildlife with 1000 feet of private grassy/wooded space along the river. Some of the things you can do here: Fish on the Savage River outback for wild Brown and Brook Trout. You are on one of the top 100 Trout streams in the Country! Build a fire in your fire pit on the river; relax with a good book, take a hike along the river or up Big Savage Mountain out the front door; take a bike ride, and kayak/canoe on Savage River Lake (2 miles upstream). Whether in the Chalet, or outside on the river, you can always hear the sound of the c... Read more

Spacious and clean cottage with an incredible view of the Savage River off the back porch. Walk 50 feet to the river to fly fish or sit around the campfire and listen to the rushing water. Mike (the owner) was outstanding and hooked us up with fly fishing lessons and guided fishing in the local area. Mike runs an Orvis dealer on site, next to the cottage and can provide any gear you might need. Plenty of open space to run and play on the flat, grassy area between the cottage and river. Charcoal grill is provided and firewood is available. Hard to put words to the beauty of the river and how awesome it is to stay next to it. I'll visit again soon and would highly recommend Mike's operation (Savage River Outfitters) and the Rainbow Chalet.

The Rainbow chalet was very nice and super clean. Its setting was just as nice: along the banks of the Savage River, prime trout fishing waters. Well-trained dogs are welcome, and we brought along our hound mix for his first vacation ever. While my husband fished behind the chalet, the dog and I hiked above the river and along a trail at Deep Creek Lake Park (I highly recommend the latter, where there are various well-maintained trails.) Charlie at the Savage River Outfitters fly shop was friendly, knowledgeable, and provided helpful advice to my husband.
