McHenry cabin description
Newer 2200-square-foot, custom, log cabin with three-sided wrap deck nestled on one+ acre in Deerfield off of Mayhew Inn Road. Beautiful trees and ferns with room to breath. Three miles from Swallows Falls, 2 miles to horseback riding stables and 5 miles to State Park Beach which has full water access and a public boat launch with a great 'Discovery Center.' We are about six miles south of the Wisp skiing area, with the lake across the street from us, however there is no public access there. Arrowhead and the Honi Honi are about 3 miles.
There is a bedroom with a King and a Twin plus a full bath. A second bedroom with a queen and a private bath. A third bedroom with a queen and a fourth bedroom with a double bed and a shared bath. There is a couch in the loft and room for one blow up mattress. The couch does not pull out and it is the only couch that I allow visitors to sleep on. Ceiling fans throughout, with great cross ventilation. There is a nice walkout basement with a new second Family Room. There is a foosball table. Gas FP with remote. Comfy furniture, no cast offs from our basement. Great flow to the house. Linens & paper goods are provided at NO additional cost, all you need to bring is your personal gear. Very comfortable home where you can put your feet up to read or relax after a day of activities. Campfire pit out front to have a bonfire and roast marshmallows. There is no additional charge for linens or garbage service, however there is a cleaning fee of $100 for the maid service after your departure. There is no tax, no booking fee. This is by far the BEST deal in the area. All rates are subject to a holiday premium. Should any group misrepresent themselves they will forfeit the deposit and or be evicted. Pets are welcome with discretion of the owner. There is a $50 pet fee per visit per pet. Cancellations within 21 days are subject to a $200 fee.
One last note. There are three deer heads over the fireplace. We did not shoot these animals. I bought 2 at a yard sale, in the hopes of displaying their beauty, lest they be killed in vain. The third guy was given to us buy a past renter, in the hopes of recycle. Hopes this makes sense to you...and you are not freaked out by them.
Flexible, non-weekly rentals are okay.
We hope to hear from you so that you may enjoy our little place as much as we do.

Wonderful Winter Weekend
Wonderful Winter Weekend
The place is beautiful, it's decorated wonderfully and fully stocked. The layout was great and allowed plenty of space for the 8 of us. The location is great too, we were close to everything. And the driveway is great for sledding. We really enjoyed our weekend there, the only problem was it wasn't long enough, we look forward to staying there again next year.

Our family of 10 (6 adults and 4 children) enjoyed our recent stay - 12/26-12/30/10. Cabin was great and exactly as pictured. Cara was most helpful and provided lots of good information about the area and things to do locally. Loved that it was pet friendly and that our four legged family members got to come to the mountains too.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a weekend getaway in Sept. We LOVED this house and all it has to offer! The actual house is beautiful and the kitchen is very well-stocked. The location also can't be beat. We loved the local coffee shop (Trader's Coffee Shop) and also had an incredible meal at Mountain State Brewing Company (pizza is to die for!). Cara, the owner, was wonderful to deal with and I wouldn't hesitate to rent this house again (and plan on it very soon!)

The home is very nicely maintained, beautifully decorated and inviting. The owners were excellent to work with. Very informative on the surrounding and activities in the area. All my questions were answered promptly. My family and I enjoyed it very much. We did alot of running around to get lots of activities in, but would like to return just to enjoy the home and spend more time there relaxing. I would recommend this property to friends and familly. Look forward to returning. Thanks again to the owners for there generosity.

A great week in the woods.
A great week in the woods.
We had a wonderful family vacation in the woods at Bear House. Everything was clean, photos were accurate, communication with the owner was great. I couldn't have asked for more. We have 3 adult children who joined us with their spouces and partners who could come for varying lengths of time. One night we had nine people in the house and there was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and have privacy when they needed it. Close to Swallow Falls State Park for some beautiful hiking by the creeks and Huntingon Mannor State Park for swimming in a nice quiet lake. Next time we go back to Deep Creek we will stay here.

We had a wonderful experience at this home! Vacationing with 3 young boys and a large dog is always a challenge but we didn't feel any strain at all on our visit - the boys didn't want to leave! The cabin is perfectly tucked into the woods and warmly decorated. The owners make sure that you are stocked with any items you would need (kiddie utensils, paper products, family games, movies, etc.) Swallow Falls is a beautiful spot nearby. Highly recommend a stay at this gem of a home.

Wonderful Place! :)
Wonderful Place! :)
My husband and I recently took a short spring break trip with our two girls to this quiet cabin in the woods. We loved it! Its very clean, and holds true to what you see here in the listing. Its a gorgeous place! Plenty of things for the kids to play with, and a great place to unwind for a few days. It was nice to get to spend some quality "fam" time away from everything else (Internet, cell phones, etc.) We had a great time. :) Thank you Cara for opening your home to us. I would highly recommend this rental!

Cara, I just wanted to thank you, so very much, for sharing you home with us. I feel that I have found my second home. We rented 2 weekends in a row, because we were just so enchanted with your home and the serenity that envelopes you while you're there. Thank you, again! We are looking to book again for next weekend. Cannot wait to go back! Sincerely, Natalie Worrell

We had a wonderful stay at the cabin. Every imaginable amenity was included. Nicely decorated and well planned. We particularly loved the deck on three sides of the house. Very relaxing. Our dogs were in heaven having us with them 24 hours a day. Swallow Falls was incredible.
