More than 150 years ago, famed philosopher Henry David Thoreau published his iconic book “Walden,” which chronicled his two years living as one with nature in a cabin set on Walden Pond in Massachusetts. Today, some travelers who seek a Walden-esque experience still want 21st-century amenities and perks. At Blue Moon Rising, a new eco-friendly vacation village nestled in the mountains of Western Maryland, they'll find the best of both worlds. Following a soft opening in fall 2013, the retreat officially opened to guests June 27. Tucked away on 15 wooded acres replete with towering oak, hickory and hemlock trees, various flora, fauna and a quiet stream, the property boasts 14 environmentally conscious, compact and energy-efficient cabins (ranging from 300 to 450 square feet)

This has allowed for a modern kitchen, family room, guest room and an office.

Havre de Grace.--Almost 20 years ago, I bought a piece of farmland that abuts what I think of as the back side of our place. From a farming standpoint it was not an especially good buy.It's a pretty tract, about half of it tillable, and close by if you're on foot or happen to have a helicopter. The trouble is, it lies on the far side of a creek and a very hilly patch of woods. To reach it with most farm machinery from our barn requires a roundabout trip of about 2 miles on county roads.It was much more accessible to a neighbor, and as he was looking for more land to farm I decided to rent it to him until I figured out a better use for it. He's still farming it today, and has been a good steward; it looks much better than it did when I bought it. I get over to it as often as I can, but a recent event forcefully suggested to me that that might not have been often enough.

Croom. -- We are up the creek. It's a small creek, called Mattaponi, a tributary of a not-so-small river, the Patuxent. It begins as a narrow stream in a hardwood swamp near Route 301 and widens slightly as it reaches the tidal freshwater marshes through which it winds on its way to the river.This is Prince George's County, Maryland's biggest. About three-quarters of a million people live here on the eastern fringes of Washington, but although we're within about 25 miles of the White House at this moment we see none of them in the marsh on Mattaponi Creek.
