Wye Island/Granary Creek Info

Here is some info about that Wye Island/Granary Creek spot I mentioned. Definitely not trying to foist this on folks -- just presenting an option:

Wye Island hosts the DNR Conference Lodge (Duck House). The lodge and grounds are available to rent for your meetings, retreats, company picnics, family reunions, weddings and receptions. The conference lodge is located on Granary Creek just off the Wye East River. For recreation, we provide vollyball and horseshoes. For additional recreational space there is a large grassy field near the lodge. Guests are welcome to bring bicycles to utilize the many miles of trails and shoreline to hike and bike. The lodge itself is very small, accommodating only 25 to 30 people per day for an indoor meeting. There are overnight accommodations for 12 people in a dormitory setting. Outdoors, groups of 50 to 250 people can be accommodated. A self-service kitchen and an outdoor grill are available to users. A list of local caterers is available upon request. There is also a new 100 person outdoor pavilion available for use. Pets are prohibited at the Conference Lodge.

Rental charge for the lodge is $225 per day plus a $15 reservation charge. Overnight accommodations in the lodge or cabin cost an additional service charge of $20.00 per person per night. All bed linens, blankets and towels are provided. Rental service charge for the pavilion is only $175 per day. The lodge and pavilion can be rented as a package for $350 per day; the $15 reservation charge is applicable. Reservations are accepted ten months in advance of your stay and can be made by contacting the Wye Island Office at 410-827-7577.
Note the $175 charge for the picnic pavilion. We'd need solid commitments for that, I'd think.

From here, where there is quite a bit more info, including maps/directions via land:
