McHenry house description

New lake access home with private dock available for your use.Use our 15ft.canoe. Bring your own boat, or rent one for the day/week from a local marina and keep it at your own private dock. Large dock in quiet cove is great for sunbathing or swimming. We have the dock is in the lake from May first until October first.The dock must be 'pulled' through the cold months. If you want to have the dock out for visits in April or October call we will see if we can accommodate you.

Located close to all Deep Creek Lake activities but tucked away in 3 acres of woods so you can get away from it all. Watch for deer as you enjoy breakfast from your screened in porch. Share quiet nights sitting around your campfire roasting marshmallows, we provide the firewood!

Each bedroom has a queen sized bed and a twin bed. There is additional queen sized Murphy bed in the great room.

we received an inquiry asking a question about 'lake access' It has occur to me there may be some confusion about the lake proximity to our house, and the name we use for our place may have added to this.
Our house is 'the Barn on Lake Shore' because the address is on Lake Shore Drive, and we chose to build with the look of a barn (This was in homage to a local landmark, a sway back stone barn around the corner on Mayhew Inn road), it is NOT on the shore of Deep Creek Lake. I chose this name for the cute factor, not to deceive anyone
Our property is NOT lake front.To get to our dock you walk down the middle of our property and cross the road, go down our deeded and wooded 15 foot right of way between two lake side houses.We all find it a pleasant walk and the view of our cove sitting on the dock and its landing is lovely and very private. We don't have what I could call a lake view from our house. In the summer you can some time see a glimmer of the lake, when the trees are bare in the winter a little more but thats about it. What we do have is lots of private woods.
No one in the past has ever complained but,we would rather have fewer inquires or renters than have any of our guest be disappointed in our place.

We have tried to make our property pet and kid friendly with casual no-worries decor. It is not small child-proof however,the second floor which contains the living space, has large, low windows, and will require close adult supervision. The back porch has 13 steps. The interior stairs are 17 steps to the living space they are equipted with hand rails and hand grips, Hand grips are also in the full bath shower and commode this may be of interest to persons with limited mobility.

We like to cook and you will find a well equipped kitchen. cooking for a crowd? We suply the pots. All doors and shelves are labeled to make life easy for you.

Climbing on stonework of barn would be dangerous is forbidden..
