Property description

itness a glorious sunrise! Have breakfast on our deck, breathe in the pure mountain air and marvel at our majestic view of the western MD mountains. You'll feel like you're in a tree house! No mosquitoes!

Visit the Discovery Center at Deep Creek State Park, swim or go boating in the lake. Summer days are warm; evenings nice and cool for sleeping. Autumn Glory is fantastic in the fall. In the winter you can ski at wonderful Ski Wisp (only 10 minutes).

Then, enjoy a drink in front of our stone fireplace or relax in the hot tub while the kids play foosball, cards, board games or the keyboard in our spacious den downstairs (equipped with a propane stove). Go out on the deck in the evening to view a wonderful Heaven full of stars and, if you're lucky, a full moon also! Life doesn't get much better than this!

Linens are provided. Please bring your own beach towels. Owner pays cleaning bill!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We are now retired from an independent school in Severna Park, MD. We have four beautiful daughters, three super sons-in-law and eight wonderful grandchildren.

Why the Owner Chose Swanton:
We are from New England, love snow and skiing. We have lived in Anne Arundel County, MD for 38 years which is beautiful, but doesn't have as much snow and as many cool summer evenings as Garrett Co. does, so we chose to buy a vacation home in the western MD mountains.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Deep Creek State Park is 5 minutes from our home. There are many activities at the Discovery Center. A lovely afternoon can be enjoyed with a picnic lunch (tables and grills are supplied) at the beach, swimming, playing volleyball and just taking in the breathless view of the lake. You can launch your boat at the Park also. Movie theaters are only 5 minutes in the other direction.
