McHenry cabin description

Country Acres Retreat has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths plus an additional sleeping area and sleeps up to 12 persons. Also available within a few hundred feet, if needed, is a pavilion with picnic tables, chairs, gas grills, and a campfire circle of large rocks for relaxation, story-telling, or reminiscing.

This cabin features a full hickory kitchen with an eat-in bar area, and includes an electric range, microwave, blender, dishwasher, lots of silverware, plates, glasses, cooking utensils, and much more.

The Great Room features a rustic, native sugar maple hardwood floor which still shows the tap holes made by the 'sugaring' process years ago. The Great Room is furnished with a sofa, love seat, recliner, and a large, 'antique' plank-style table with a bench and chairs seating from ten to twelve people.

A tastefully decorated full bath and a bedroom with a queen size bed is on the main floor. One is struck by the rustically beautiful wooden floors, ceilings and trim.

The loft affords a beautiful view of the two-acre lake, and includes a king-sized bed, and additional sleeping space of two single beds on rollers for those 'extra,' younger guests.

The ground floor includes a bedroom with a full-sized bed with a single trundle bed underneath, a men's and a ladies restroom and shower, and a utility room with a washer and a dryer. Rounding out the ground floor is a family room with a new queen sized sleeper sofa bed, a cot, a TV on 60-channel Dish Network plus the Pittsburgh local channels, DVD and a VCR. A small baby crib and a larger crib are also available as needed. Again, there is a beautiful view of the water.

SPECIAL NOTE: All linens, towels, toilet tissue, coffee and hot cocoa mix are provided with the rental charges as a convenience to our guests!

This Cabin is NO SMOKING and NO PETS !

                  Other Deep Creek Lake Area Attractions Courtesy of the Garrett County Chamber of Commerce: Historic Casselman Inn and Restaurant built in 1824, The Casselman was one of the numerous inns along the National Trail to serve the stage coaches, covered wagons, drovers and riders that made the Old Pike the busiest thoroughfare crossing the mountains. In its over 180 years of history, the Casselman has been called Drover's Inn, Farmer's Hotel, Dorsey's Hotel, and The Casselman. Daniel Grant, an English engineer from whom Grantsville took its name, was the original owner of a tract of land that he called Cornucopia. (301) 895-5055.

                  Casselman River Bridge State Park - When it was built in 1813, the bridge was the largest single-span stone arch bridge in the country. It is a designated National Historic Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: Wife & family of Mennonite pastor & strawberry farmer. Owners of farm for 40 years, formerly growing strawberries, corn, potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, and other vegetables. Now the farm has been converted to beautiful hay fields.

                  Why the Owner Chose McHenry:
                  My nine children grew up on this farm while my husband was a teacher, pastor, and farmer. While walking on the farm, we saw that it was a beautiful setting to build a lake, pavilion, and later a cabin for when the family came home. Decided immediately to rent out the cabin for vacationers and share the hospitality with so many more. The area is quiet and private, let close enough to enjoy the local attractions and the mountains of Western Maryland.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  The cabin is fully furnished, heated, and overlooks our private 2-acre lake. Also available within a few hundred feet, if needed, is a pavilion with picnic tables, chairs, gas grill, and a campfire circle of large rocks for relaxation, story-telling, or reminiscing. A number of weddings have also been held on the farm in the beautiful setting of the lake area. Whether you are seeking a peaceful retreat, a romantic getaway, or simply want to experience a natural wonder, you will find what you are looking for at the Country Acres Retreat.
