Swanton cabin description

The Maine Retreat is a quiet oasis close to the action of Deep Creek Lake but far from everyday. Vacationers familiar with Maine get-a-ways will absolutely love this setting-- A short trail walk through privately owned woods takes you from cozy, quiet seclusion to the beauty of Deep Creek Lake's shores.

Take a seat on the Covered Porch or take a stroll around the property-- 3 Acres of Private Woods, with a Trail to the Lake, are yours for savoring. Take the Canoe out and see if you can catch local bass, bluegill, perch, or walleye with the Fishing Rods, Tackle, Paddles and Lifevests we provide.

Within 10-15 min., you'll reach Deep Creek Lake activities, and when you return home, partying neighbors and bright street lights won't interrupt your view of the clear night sky, the beautiful sounds of nature, or peaceful alonetime with your loved ones.

The backyard firepit is sure to be a place where memories are made, roasting hotdogs, making smores, and catching up with those who mean the most.



More Features of The Maine Retreat
The large front and back yard offer plenty of Kid-Friendly and Pet-Friendly space for outdoor games, such as horseshoe, badminton, volleyball, and a Southern favorite, cornhole (beanbag toss). You'll find these and other fun items (frisbee, water guns, etc.) in our gaming closet. You'll enjoy hours of indoor family entertainment from the satellite TV, DVDs, Videos, CDs, laptop with WiFi, PlayStation and PS2 games on rainy mountain days. Bring your bikes, as the North Glade Hills community is a great place to ride. Kids can ride through the neighborhood and adults can enjoy the long country roads. Nearby Deep Creek State Park has hiking trails, boat launch, public beach with picnic areas and basketball courts, a science center, and tourist/info desk.

Our ALL-INCLUSIVE price is designed to save money and hassle during your stay. There is no security deposit. Linen service and cleaning service are included in the price (quoted on VRBO at 5 cents for itemization purposes). FREE wood is provided for the fireplace and firepit. FREE charcoal is provided for the grill during the summer. The property is also serviced by a local full-time property maintenance company ready to address any issues with just a phone call away.

The Maine Retreat has 3 clean, equal-sized, comfortably furnished bedrooms and a sleeper sofa. The well-maintained interior has amenities throughout which will make it feel like home. The fully equipped kitchen has hosted several Thanksgiving dinners, but private chefs can be reserved to provide escape from the kitchen as well.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: We hope you love our place as much as we do! We have enjoyed the many weeks and weekends spent away from the city, immersed with nature. During the week, we are busy professionals who help children and adults with special needs. On weekends, we've come to really enjoy peaceful, restorative weekends at DCL. We joined VRBO to share our home with others who we hope will enjoy using it when we can't.

                  Why the Owner Chose Swanton:
                  We love that Swanton offers Deep Creek Lake's four-seasons of activities without tons of neighbors. We prefer a bit of seclusion while maintaining quick access to the lake, park, etc.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Our cul-de-sac has just one full-time resident and our neighbors each have acreage that separates our homes. Still, we can walk down to the lake and take the canoe out to fish, swim, or paddle. We are close to all central DCL activities, including WISP resort, where we swim, play raquetball, workout, and soak in the hot tub for just $7/day (every weekend!). Not to mention ski! We viewed other homes in the area and just couldn't find another home that had the convenient location with privacy, lake access, and a traditional 'yard'. We wanted space to play old-fashioned games and soak in the sun! Best of all, the property reminded us of our many vacations to Maine. We put an offer on this house the first day we saw it.
