Perfect Weekend Getaway
"I recently stayed in Thisleway Cabin which is located right beside Morning Glory. They are nearly identical cabins with the same amenities and same owners. With my family and friends we celebrated my 30th birthday which also happened to be Memorial Day weekend. This was our first time staying so we were a little skeptical not knowing what to expect. No worries with this place! Everything was exactly as described. The cabin was beautiful and very clean and well stocked. Tina was so great to deal with. She went above and beyond to answer all of my questions and made me feel welcome. Only minutes away from all of the great attractions that Deep Creek has to offer. My favorite part was relaxing in the hot tub at night with a gorgeous view of the stars! We had no issues whatsoever during our stay. I highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a perfect getaway without any hassle. We will most definitely stay here again!"

"This might be a long review but I wanted to give this house and it's owners their due.
First things first. Reserving this house was so simple and easy. Using VRBO can be tricky at times due to the large number of agents who mask their listings as owners but this was not the case. Claudia and Mark were quick to respond and answered all of our questions completely. They made us feel at home before we even left home.
We arrived on Saturday evening to a beautiful home. As soon as we walked in the door we felt so relaxed and at ease. The house is perfectly furnished from top to bottom. The little touches around the house showed us the owners really care about their guests. We thought we would go out to dinner the first night but we felt so comfortable there after a long day of skiing we just put on our slippers and cooked up a nice spaghetti dinner (The grocery store is 5 minutes away)and then just relaxed looking forward to the morning when we could see the view from the house.
WOW is all I have to say is wow, what a view to wake up to. After breakfast we were off to go skiing. We were at Wisp in 5 minutes. The weather was perfect all weekend and the crowds were not as bad as people say they can be.
Relaxing in this home is easy. The movie collection is by far the most extensive I have seen in any rental home. They had movies for every age group. The furniture is very comfortable and up to date. The furnishings are nice and not typical of rental homes and that made it feel like a home not a rental.
We are already looking to go back over the summer and next winter as well.
We really had a great time."

"First I must say the pictures of the inside don't do it justice. I was surprised with cleanliness and layout. The bed that we slept on was very comfortable and the living room area was up to date and modern. The back room with the computer, pull out sofa,full bath, laundry room and entertainment center is also nice. Its almost like having your own studio apartment. Would be a great place if you have kids or guests visiting to sleep.
The dock itself is in a good location and not a lot of traffic going by in that area. We used the fire pit by the lake a few nights. Would recommend. The outdoor deck is nice for grilling or just to hang out on. The fenced in yard is nice if you have a dog. We parked our truck behind the cabin and trailer across the street by the lake in the designated parking area for the cottage. Also, if you are bringing a boat make sure you fill it up before putting it on the water. Gas is expensive on the lake!
Rob, the owner, is great to work with. He answered all our questions and got back to us in a short time. We have already booked for next year. Next summer can't come fast enough!"

"We just stayed at this house for the week of New Year's and we had the wonderful time. The house is just beautiful! Very spacious and bright. The kitchen is huge and very comfortable, although we didn't really cook much, it was our favorite place to hang out, have drinks and snacks and just enjoy ourselves. The kids were in Paradise with so much space, we all played Hide and Go seek with them and they just had a blast. There is a Brewery within walking distance from the house that has really good Pizza and of course the beer is also great. We liked it so much, we went there a couple of times. Wisp resort is very close, the entrance to the Resort is right down the street from the house. We don't really ski, but we did the snow tubing and the Mountain Coaster and that was super fun. We also went to DC one day which is about 3 hours drive, but left early in the morning and had enough time to visit/see most of the important places around the National Mall. The owner was friendly and attentive, she responded fast to all our questions/requests which we didn't really have many. We were there to have a good time and so we did. Only downside, there was no snow at that time of the year, we were told by many locals that they usually have snow for the end of the year, but not this time. I wish we could go during the Snow months, but the kids have school so that's not an option for now. Hopefully in the future... I would definitely stay there again, same house, wouldn't change a thing."
