Watch Us Grow
MD Resort has helped make many wonderful memories since its founding in 1999, and now it's time to expand in a big way. Bill and Susie Benedick purchased the resort in October 2012 and are looking forward to getting started on the new additions and improvements. With plans to build an event center, wedding chapel, 20 room hotel, a new office building, and many more renovations to the property, the couple is excited about the flexibility the new complex will provide for its customers.
The Oaks at MD Resort will open in the Summer of 2013 and will allow MD Resort to host indoor events with up to 300 guests, and outdoor events of up to 1000. The new complex will not take away from the charm of the existing Bed and Breakfast, but will only add opportunities. Take a look at where we started, and then scroll down to see where we are headed.
