Recent Deep Creek Lake reviews

  • An Absolutely AMAZING Home

    "Highland Manor provides an absolutely incredible stay for anyone interested in going to Deep Creek Lake. I went there with a group of 16 people and I could not have asked for a more enjoyable experience. This house was fantastic, with luxury and comfort that pictures couldn't even fully do it justice. The bedrooms are spacious, the kitchen is enormous, and the indoor pool is the perfect size for taking a vacation at any time throughout the year. I would without question go back here again, and with such a nice owner, I would recommend this place to anyone interested. Everybody in our group had a great time and couldn't believe how nice the place actually was. I think my favorite part of the trip was giving others the tour as they showed up and watching their reactions. A++++"

  • Family Reunion

    "Thank you for a wonderful weekend at your beautiful vacation home. Each year our family gathers for the holidays and this home was perfect for the many ages we had to accommodate. From ages 84 to just 6 months old, we had a great time. The home was very spacious and accommodated pack n' play space for the young children as well as privacy for those who wanted some time to relax. We cooked all meals at the house and found the kitchen to be well stocked for preparation. The house is conveniently located very close to the ski slopes at Wisp and actually has a view of the slopes. Many of our family members enjoyed the skiing there. The house is also in close proximity to many shops, resteraunts, a grocery store, movie theater, and basically what anyone would need during the winter months. When making the reservations, the owners were very helpful and responded promptly to any questions we had. Overall, I would recommend this home and look forward to returning in the future!"

  • Great house but very close to other houses

    "Rating Details: I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was somewhat unhappy with the location. The vacation rental was very clean. The property manager was more than helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The house was very clean and spacious. The outside area was very small and the other houses were right on top of you, when we checked in noticed the grill was completely unusable, but the realtor company did replace with a new one with many phone calls back and forth. Our last night there the central air went out, but it was a cool night so it was fine. Very close drive to marina and state park, was an overall great vacation, but be prepared it gets cold at nite!!!!"

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.
