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."

"My extended family had a wonderful time at this house -- the kids loved the pool, and the putt-putt/tennis courts next door. Unlike most other homes we've stayed at in Deep Creek, this house has a nice flat yard to play in, and a generously sized shaded porch. This is our 8th year at Deep Creek, and everyone said this house was the best one yet. We'll be back!"

"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!"

"We had a wonderful time at the Birds' Nest. Wish we could have stayed longer. Everything was right at your fingertips. No need to bring anything with you except food, clothing and any personel items that you might want. The owner was a very nice lady and we had the opportunity to sit and talk with her for a few hours while we were there. The Birds' Nest is pet friendly and the owner invited our dog inside her home as well. He is a rescue dog and felt right at home in her house. She lives close by so anytime we had a question she was available. Definitely more personable than a hotel. So glad we stayed there. We enjoyed the hot tub, cooking on the grill and just relaxing indoors. We would definitely recommend this place to friends and family and hope to return sometime in the future."
