Cozy Inn and Restaurant

The inn and restaurant have been torn down to make room for a car lot expansion. The village was torn down and all the memorabilia was sold at auction.

Mural of US History with Weird Religious Undertones

Next to the Cozy Inn in Thurmont (owned by the proprietors of the Cozy Restaurant, home of the Camp David Museum) is a large mural depicting scenes from American history, focusing on Camp David and featuring several odd religious images, including a devil and angel battling in the sky behind Lyndon Johnson.

The Inn itself has rooms named after various presidents, and a Camp David-themed gift shop.
