Recent Deep Creek Lake reviews

  • Stinky sinks... otherwise, a nice stay

    "Rating Details: I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was clean. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: For the price this was a great find. Huge backyard right on the lake, very quiet and serene. Unfortunately we were rained out most of our weekend stay so we were stuck inside and the house is a little dated. Particularly the pipes (and therefore water in the sinks and shower) smelled like they had not been used in a long time and when we first got there the water breaker was turned off. The stinky kitchen sink in particular made cooking a little unpleasant. It has a beautiful view though and we wish we could have enjoyed the yard and the dock a bit more because they were wonderful!"

  • Great Place to Get Away from it All!

    "My husband and I arrived on 9/5/14 and were quickly joined by three other couples for our annual get-away weekend. The house is actually smaller than the pictures make it appear, but it is very well laid out and comfortable for four couples - each couple had their own bath, which is a very nice perk! House is beautifully decorated with lots of obviously local crafts/artwork. The kitchen is fully equipped with a very nice set of potware and a large amount of plate and glassware - more than needed. Another nice feature was the fact that the house already had basic cleaning materials and trash bags (even though we'd come prepared, was still a nice thing to see!). Bedrooms and bedding (including the linens) were very nice and clean - again a very nice thing! Only drawback (and it's really not a huge one) is that there are some very nice throw rugs/runners in the main area of the house that really should be secured with the anti slip matting - we actually ended up removing and storing them until the end of our stay for the safety of one of our party. Overall we were very impressed with the house and would consider re-renting it if it met the needs of our trip."

  • 1st family vacation

    "My family enjoyed this house. They didn't want to go out for the activities planned!! Very peaceful and beautiful. Well worth the money, which wasn't much! My 12 year old asked if we could make this house our annual family vacation place. Thanks for the memories!!"

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.
