There is a Blue Moon Rising in Western Maryland

rob paine blue moon risingTired of McMansions? Is living large getting old? Are you longing for a vacation space with a beautiful view that does not require consuming enough electricity to power a small village? Are you thinking about downsizing but would like to sample the eco lifestyle first? Would you like to spend the night in a Hobbitat? Welcome to Blue Moon Rising, a ecotourism retreat at Deep Creek Lake in Western Maryland, featuring houses that are built in the spirit of the small house movement.  This past summer before Blue Moon Rising opened for overnight guests, I took advantage of free tours being offered at the destination. The photo at left is of the main building at Blue Moon. The structure features distinctive architecture that which you will find throughout the entire grounds.

    1. good deal! It is a really cool place. I do not think there many others (if any) eco tour destinations that offer the same experience. Oh, and they have about the best view of the lake!
