Recent Swanton vacation rental reviews

I have stayed at the Hideaway house several times and really appreciate its cleanliness and simplicity. Highly recommend!

Only thing was the propane was empty, but they replaced the next day.
Melissa O. | Jul 2023
This was our first time using Vacasa and we were blown away. The home was absolutely stunning. The cabin was so peaceful and relaxing. The home had everything and anything you could possibly want or need. The decoration throughout the cabin were just perfect. We are already planning our next trip back.

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!
