"We had a great time at the cabin. Our toddler loved playing with all the yard games (cornhole, cricket, badminton, and more!) and our dog enjoyed exploring in the woods and lounging in the shady yard. It was short walk to down to the cove where we could fish and the dog could swim. We also enjoyed taking the canoe out. The cabin provided a perfect amount of quiet and solitude while still being close to all the activity of Deep Creek Lake. Great dining options are just a few minutes away. We rented a boat for the day from Bill's Marine and that was just about a 15 minute drive.
The house itself was very clean and spacious. Beds were comfortable. The fire pit and firewood were a nice touch. Our only complaint was that toilet paper and paper towels were not provided so we had to make a trip to the store for those.
We had a small problem when we were not able to find the canoe at the location described to us in the manual from the owners. We called the owners and they were very responsive (on a Saturday) and got the property management company to handle the issue right away. (It turns out the property management company had put the canoe in a different location without the owners' knowledge.) We were very impressed with how quickly the owners resolved the problem.
We had a great experience and would return!"

"My girlfriend and I arrived earlier than expected, but the owner was very flexible and let us settle in upon arrival. The cabin was clean (we stayed in Brownie), up-to-date and very cozy. The river is literally in your backyard so it is impossible to not relax. There is a large lake and trails near by with great hiking. By the back next to the river is a fire pit -- which made the each night even more great! The main thing I'd have to say about our experience are the amazing views of the river and side of the mountain -- truly amazing! The owner is great and made our stay awesome. Highly recommend considering this if you are looking to get away!

The property manager was more than helpful.
The vacation rental was very clean.
I was more than happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
We very much enjoyed our week-long Deep Creek family vacation. "Brief Respite" met all our family's needs. Five bedrooms, four spacious baths, an open kitchen/dining/gathering space, additional game space in the lower level, a hot tub, lake-front location, and proximity to the state park and other area attractions. Wished we had a quieter lake front location, perhaps on a cove; fewer steep steps to the dock slip; and an outdoor fire pit. But overall "Brief Respite" met all our expectations and provided our family with a memorable vacation week together."

"Our grown children brought their young children and spouses to vacation with us in this awesome home. Although it was mid-August we encountered very cool (60's) and very wet (rained 5 out of 7 days almost all day each day). In spite of the weather, we had a fabulous vacation, due to the design and functionality of the house. The equipment we needed to cook and bake every meal together, as well as the amenities in the home, made all the activities relaxing. We hope to return with our family again!"
