Sleeping Area Restriction:

During a recent inspection by the Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office, we were informed that some of New Germany’s cabins contain features that do not meet certain current fire safety standards. According to current fire code, all bedrooms and sleeping areas must have a minimum of two approved means of emergency exit. Due to the size and location of some cabin windows, not all of the cabin bedroom and sleeping areas currently meet this standard. These issues will be addressed during upcoming renovations, which are scheduled to be complete later this season. In the meantime, we have been ordered to remove all beds from the second-floor bedrooms (lofts), and to prohibit guests from sleeping in these areas. Use of these areas of the cabin for other than sleeping is permitted. To comply with this order, the following temporary changes have been made to the configuration of Cabin #5:

* All beds have been removed from the second floor (loft area); and, there is 1 queen-size bed and 2 roll-away cots on the first floor.

Your safety remains our primary concern, and we appreciate your patience and cooperation as we work to address these issues. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Erin Thomas, Park Manager, at 301-895-5453 or ethomas@dnr.state.md.us
