  • An excellent place to stay --

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The place has everything you could want (even a Cuisinart food processor). My husband, our three children and two spouses, and our 20-month grandchild joined in on a week at the lake and we all agreed that it’s the best lake house we’ve stayed in. We always spend a week or two on a lake each summer for the last 12 years. It’s a great house and property! The house is well maintained and nicely furnished. The beds were comfortable. My husband loved how the master bedroom was on a different wing of the house, very quiet. The common areas (dining, living, deck) are large. The deck is great and there is a well-maintained hot tub off it which we never used though it looked very inviting. You are set back from the lake, not too far. You see the lake from the house and deck and because of the way they landscaped the property you feel close. Instead of undergrowth under the trees they somehow have moss growing from the deck all of the way to the lake. It’s a magical! The property is pretty level, easy walking for the 20 month-old. There is an extensive dock and seating by the lake with a fire ring, very nice. Nice place to watch the sunset. You are pretty insulated from the neighbors. It’s quiet and secluded. We worked with Stevi Lutheran. She was marvelous in fielding our questions, etc. She’s top notch and made the rental process easy"

  • Comfortable, Relaxing and Convenient Home

    "This is our third year staying in this rental home and we'll come back every year. It's very clean, beds are comfortable and location is perfect for the slopes. Four adults and four teenagers stay here and there's plenty of space. We love the long table which is big enough to fit all of us for dinner and it's great for playing board games. We also enjoy the ping pong table in the basement."

  • Christmas Ski Vacation

    "Wonderful, Wonderful !!! I bet we were the first to ever call the owner only after being in the house 20 mins to make sure the reservations for the next two days reserved by someone else might of been cancelled. We hope to book earlier next year for a longer stay. This was perfect for our families and great location. Two things: YES a 4 Wheel Drive is definitely necessary in the winter and there is no WiFI."

Deep Creek Lake Travel Tips

Beauty Surrounds Deep Creek Lake Vacation Rentals

Deep Creek Lake is the largest man-made lake in Maryland. This vast 3,900-acre lake was created to provide water for the hydroelectric plant on the Youghiogheny (Yok-a-gainy) River and is now a favorite destination for kayakers, boaters and extreme sports enthusiasts. With a 65-mile shoreline and countless docks and homes overlooking the still waters, it makes a great alternative destination to the more crowded Maryland resorts along the Atlantic coastline. Surrounded by impressive forest-covered mountains, Deep Creek Lake is the perfect destination for those who enjoy watersports, nature and outdoor pursuits.

The Benefits of Deep Creek Lake Vacation Rentals

The most convenient way to stay on the shores of Maryland’s Deep Creek Lake is by renting a cabin or vacation home. Each individual rental home has its own views and makes the perfect base for outdoor activities in the area. At the end of the day, sit on the porch, relax by the fire and enjoy a home-cooked meal. Cabins come in various sizes to accommodate most families and many vacation homes are pet-friendly too. Enjoy the comfortable surroundings of a warm home with a full-size kitchen and plenty of living space so that each member of the family can do as they please. Vacation rentals are increasingly popular as they offer so much more for your money than smaller hotel rooms, especially if you share the cost of a cabin with family or friends.

Things to do Around Deep Creek Lake

Your Deep Creek Lake lodging in Western Maryland is well located for enjoying all the scenic beauty of the area. Being 2,466 feet above sea level, high in the Allegheny Mountains, the area does have snowfall in the winter and is great for skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling. In the summer, the lake provides the perfect environment for swimming, boating, fishing, whitewater rafting, ATV riding, horseback riding, shopping, hiking, biking and golf. If you want a great view of the area, consider an airplane ride from nearby Cumberland Regional Airport.

Getting to Your Deep Creek Lake Lodging

Getting to Maryland’s best-kept secret will require a car, especially to explore the area. Bring your own jet ski, kayak or boat to make the most of your McHenry lakeside vacation rental. Those visiting from further away should fly into Pittsburgh International Airport which is 90 miles from Swanton lodging. Hire a car or 4-WD vehicle and enjoy the drive to this beautiful area.

Places to Visit Around Deep Creek Lake Cabins

The lake has many small towns to visit such as McHenry, Thayersville and Hazelhurst. Here, you will find marinas, shops and restaurants with wonderful views across the lake. The area has a number of state parks such as Swallow Falls and Savage River State Park. They provide excellent amenities for enjoying all that the lake and forest has to offer, with the opportunity to experience nature at close quarters. Frank Lloyd Wright’s Falling Waters and the Kentucky Knob homes are an hour’s drive from Deep Creek Lake, over the border in Pennsylvania. The unique formation of Waffle Rock at Jennings Randolph Lake is worth a visit. Take a trip on the Scenic Western Maryland Railroad or visit the C & O Canal and the Transport and Industry Museum in Cumberland.

Deep Creek Lake Weather

The summer months are cooler than the surrounding lowland areas, with average temperatures of 66 degrees Fahrenheit. During the winter, when temperatures drop to around 28 degrees Fahrenheit, there is plenty of snow on the mountains (around 82 inches in total) and spring arrives a little later than in other areas. The fall is a beautiful time to visit, with the trees turning vivid shades of red, gold and tan.

Other popular and affordable Maryland vacation destinations include Ocean City Maryland rentals, lodging in Annapolis, or St Michaels MD vacation homes. You will have no problem finding an ideal vacation rental home for your next Maryland family trip.
