A Unique Farm Experience in the mountains of Deep Creek

It can be your own "Camp David".

This is the perfect place for a family reunion, small weddings, health retreats and girlfriends getaways. Even more exciting are our refresh retreats which will help you revitalize and re-energize while on vacation. Let us help make your vacation a memorable one. The price per night quoted is for all 10 suites most of which have ensuite Jacuzzis and fireplaces. Three of the suites even have kitchens. The ten suites will accomodate upto 20 persons (including children).

Haley Farm is located in the Deep Creek area - a fabulous four season resort area. There is something fun to do all year. From skiing in the winter to boating and golf activities in the summer. Fall is breathtakingly beautiful with its montage of colors. There is something for everyone and only 3 hours from the Washington area and two hours from Pittsburgh.

About Kam Gillespie

Haley farm operated as a B&B for over 20 years. We ran it ourselves for the first 7 years, but then hired innkeepers. We now operate as a farm vacation and a retreat center. You can rent the place for a family reunion or we can plan a mini-vacation for you to re-energize and re-vitalize your life. And it's also affordable - ask about our two night packages with health evaluation, personal training, cooking class, yoga and meditation.

Kam Gillespie purchased this chateau / country house in 1993

Why Kam Gillespie chose Oakland

It was pure serendipity how we ended up at haley farm. We came to look at a castle near frostburg and wanted more land. We had never heard of deep creek in 1993, but fell in love with the farm and the beauty of the area. So less than a month later we were running the b&b and teaching part time at the college.

We really loved meeting all the guests and helping them discover the beauty of Deep Creek.

We are located very centrally in the deep creek lake area. We are minutes from the lake and ski slopes, white water rafting, horse back riding, golf and state parks, and yet offer the peace and tranquility that being on a farm affords. This pastoral setting with rolling hills and corn fields is a perfect place to unwind and re-fresh yourself.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

As you enter our driveway you can see a glimpse of deep creek lake. Continue down the driveway and you can immerse yourself in the beauty of the farm.

The wrap around porch is delightful place to relax and watch the deer in the fields. There are horses grazing in another field and a pond with ornamental fish. We have outdoor games you can play (croquet, corn hole, volleyball). You can snooze in the hammock or roast some s'mores on the outdoor fire. We even have a sauna and massage room (by appointment).

When the orchard is laden with fruit we are happy to let our guests pick some to take home.

Deep Creek Lake
Car: necessary

The deep creek lake area is a four season resort area. There is something for everyone from skiing in the winter to boating and lake activities in the summer. We are also the home of the only mountain-top white-water rafting course. In addition we have 3 wonderful golf courses, horse back riding, hiking and 5000 acres of state forests and parks. You can really immerse yourself in nature.

Haley farm is about 10 minutes or less from most of these activities. It is centrally located close to the state parks and recreational activities. There are nine beautiful suites which will accomodate upto 18 persons.
