Enjoy a perfect winter getaway just 3 hours from DC in western Maryland!

One cabin is pet friendly where we can accommodate one additional furry friend. Cross country ski right from the front door of the cabin or just meander the trails for some beautiful wintry scenery. There are 10 miles of trails from beginning to intermediate level as well as a 5.5 mile trail that runs between Herrington Manor to Swallow Falls State Park where some of Maryland's most breathtaking scenery can be found, including spectacular Muddy Creek Falls - a 63-foot waterfall.

Rentals for sleds, skis and snowshoes are available at the Park from 8:30 am to 4pm when conditions allow good, safe skiing. Participants are responsible for arranging their own rentals.

There is an additional $25 service charge to the Park for a pet which is the responsibility of the pet owner.
