Deep Creek Lake was the inspiration for Pine Lodge Steakhouse and The Lodges at Sunset Village, the businesses built by Jonathan and Kathy Kessler over their four decades loving the Lake area!

“Kathy and I are thrilled to share Deep Creek Lake and offer places for great food, fun for everyone and some outstanding hotel cabin suites to call home in these beautiful mountains. Enjoy! The magic of Deep Creek Lake is truly the incredible people that seem to collect here. Landing here after college was sheer luck, which is rewarded by the collections of terrific friends that are now our family”. Make the move to discover Deep Creek Lake today!
