The Stone Bow Inn
The Stone Bow Inn
This romantic Victorian inn located in a small mountain village in Western Maryland is a great place to get away and leave your worries behind. The 1870 main house has beautiful romantic rooms. The cottages have more of a country decor. All the rooms and cottages have spacious private bathrooms plus central air conditioning, cable TV with VCR and private telephones. The beds are queen or king size and have 400 count luxury linens and either handmade Amish quilts or elegant Matelasse coverlets. In addition, the Riverview Suite is totally wheelchair accessible. The bed is set at a height for easy transfer. The bathroom has been set up to allow easy wheelchair maneuvering and all the counters in the room are set at a height for wheelchair access.
October is a popular time to enjoy the beauty of the fall foliage along the river. The Spruce Forest Artisan Village is across the street where you can watch the artists and craftsmen in action. Year round there are many activities the guests of the inn enjoy. Fly fisherman can walk out the back door and stroll down to the stream for great trout fishing. There are walking and hiking trails at several nearby state parks and the Savage River State Forest. You can take Scenic Mountain Train Rides (the inn has discount tickets for guests) or visit Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and Kentucky Knob. There are a couple nearby rivers for kayaking and whitewater rafting. Summer is a great time to enjoy biking, canoeing, water skiing, swimming, and horseback riding. There is also a championship golf course. In the winter you can enjoy cross country skiing, downhill skiing, and ice fishing.
After a busy day, come back to the inn to relax and unwind. Use the steam/dry sauna and you can even schedule a nice massage. The front and back porches have rocking chairs and the decks have comfortable patio furniture so you can sit back and soak up the mountain air and beautiful scenery. Your hosts Cathy Paine and Julyen Norman have seven acres along the Casselman River and have created a wonderful place to have a romantic getaway or a stress free weekend.
