Built in 1870, the 4 bedroom and 3 bathroom Farmhouse has been completely renovated into a provincial retreat. 

Set on 100 acres amidst the rolling hills of Garrett County, the Farmhouse will transport you to a completely peaceful setting only 5 minutes from the restaurants and activities of Deep Creek Lake and Wisp Resort.

Outside, guests can explore open fields surrounded by apple and walnut trees, rushing mountain streams and a pond, wooded hillsides filled with deer and wildlife, or expansive corn and soy fields with walking trails. In the winter, sled or cross-country ski without ever leaving the property. Spend days exploring the farm, or drive 4 miles into Deep Creek Lake.

Inside, every room exudes charm and character. 

The master bedroom with king bed and luxury master bath is an oasis unto itself. Each of the three other queen bedrooms has unique character and stunning furnishings. The queen rooms share two full baths, one with a claw foot tub and separate shower, the other located adjacent to the laundry room.

Sitting rooms are both elegant and comfortable, and the custom dining table seats 10 in custom carved benches you'll never want to stand up from.

Both front and back porches are sized for socializing. The front overlooks the pond and stream, and is filled with lounge chairs and a dining table. The back porch overlooks fields and forest, and is made for grilling, with plenty of seating and a dining table.

The Farmhouse is fully outfitted with wireless internet, full kitchen and cooking supplies, hair dryers, and luxury linens. 

The Farmhouse is a retreat that will transport you to another time -- one of quiet luxury and historical meaning. It connects you to the past with all the modern comforts, and is a 5 minute drive to all the activities you desire.

Venue Features
The Scene:

Chanteclaire Farm is a 100-acre farm nestled in the hills of Deep Creek, Maryland. A historic gem, Chanteclaire Farm was the original homestead of the founding family of Friendsville, Maryland. The farm tells the story of a simpler time, when hopes and dreams, hard work and community created a beautiful and prosperous life. Massive hand-hewn beams, aged barn wood and hand-forged nails are small reminders of the soul of the place. Quaint outbuildings wrap around the scene, creating an intimate, private village.

The Barn
The barn’s dining room is warm and inviting, with an open design, soaring exposed timbers, and an irresistible dance floor. The question isn’t if, but when, you’ll kick off your shoes and show off your moves.

The Lower Grange
This objet d'art adorned cocktail bar is where our quirky European sensibility shines through. Before dinner, guests clink glasses and tell stories. Soon those separate lists of friends and family blend seamlessly into one.

​The Outdoor Dining Deck & Lower Deck
The upper Dining Deck overlooks the pond and pastoral grounds and provides a place for overflow seating or a getaway for some quiet reflection. The lower deck is the perfect outdoor extension to our cocktail hour, and always draws a crowd.
Standout Venue Features:
The Silo Bar
A 2014 addition to Chanteclaire, the Silo's transformation into a steampunk bar was internationally televised. We refer to it as "world-famous," and have received messages from around the world from viewers who fell in love with it. The bar itself is constructed of 200-year-old oak threshing wood floors. The stained glass window panels and found-object chandelier are a perfect backdrop for photo ops on the hand-crafted, spiral staircase.

Beau-Coup & Baby Blue
Clients can rent one or both of our vintage vehicles for photo ops and entrances. Beau is a gently rusted 1960 farm truck that looks great as a photo op piled with hay bales and flowers. Baby is a stunning 1965 British sports car that stops guests in their tracks while proving a little something blue.

Food, Restaurants, Cafes:
We go about the gathering of every component of every meal with all the love of a Rockwell Thanksgiving. Being mindful of both flavor and appearance, we go for local whenever the produce is available and gorgeous [we like our produce as pretty as our Brides]. When we can't use the farms next door, we look around the globe for the best quality. We choose very high-quality meats and prepare gloriously simple dishes that capitalize on their flavors and textures. Making time for extra care and attention to the details is our recipe for success and a source of genuine pride for our chef.

Our verified and highly qualified Vendors that have hosted, designed, photographed, coordinated an event here would love to give you a few tips for your event here.
