Oakland cabin description

Happy Ours is a lakefront property with its own dock. Bring your boat or Jet Ski or rent one there. The house isn’t fancy (“rustic” is more appropriate) but the property is absolutely beautiful on a quiet part of the lake with less boat traffic than most parts of the lake. The house can comfortably sleep 14, and the large kitchen will allow you to cook or bbq your meals. The house is just a short drive or boat ride to restaurants, the movie theater and The Creamery (DCL's best ice cream). Spend your day tubing, skiing, wakeboarding or just swimming in the lake. Relax in the hammock or have cocktails on the dock while you watch the beautiful sunset. Roast marshmallows over a bonfire and be amazed at the number of stars in the sky. Hiking adventures at Swallows Falls and Herrington Manor state parks are just a few minutes away. Washer/dryer and DVD/video player. You will LOVE Happy Ours!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: We bought this house when we were expecting our 4th child. We have found it to be a retreat from the hectic life we lead. We have spent countless happy hours tubing, skiing, swimming, sunbathing, and relaxing there during hot summer days. In the evenings we have bonded over board games, bonfires, movie nights and charades. We all love going to the lake, especially our kids. There is so much to do there! As our kids' lives get busier allowing us less and less time to spend there, we would like to offer others the opportunity to re-connect and create memories of their own.

                      Why the Owner Chose Oakland:
                      A beautiful property on the lake that you'll fall in love with. You can truly unplug and relax at Happy Ours.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      One of the rare properties at Deep Creek with a cleared level lawn leading to the lake. Take a look at the pictures, but even the pictures can't do justice to the beauty of Happy Ours!
