I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was spotless.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
I've been coming to Deep Creek Lake for years. I search properties, look for the perfect combination of house, location, and perks, and each house always lacks something. Special Memories is the first house that had it all !! The trip was a 4 day weekend for Autumn Glory, for 6 longtime girlfriends. We all loved the house, the cabin feel and decor, with room to roam. The location couldn't have been better - right on the lake, next to the park. Off the main road, quiet and peaceful !! The house offers a lot of activities and we all want to book the house in the summer to take advantage of those activities. The staff was helpful and professional and overall the stay was exactly what we were looking for. The only negative comment I can add to the 4 days - issues with tv's and remote controls. Not all worked - a little frustrating, but certainly not a deal breaker. Can't wait to return :)"

"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 spent a relaxing week at the Maine Retreat with our 2 kids and big dog. We loved having the yard and the woods to walk through. Walking down to the lake was a daily tradition, and we saw a beaver a couple of times. We also enjoyed the canoe - very peaceful. We really enjoyed the recommendations listed in the binder in the house, especially the Fireside Deli. I unfortunately had to work one day, and the internet access was great. So, all in all, if you need some time away (but might not get it), the Maine Retreat is a great place to go!"
