This lovely, rustic property has all the comfort of home with all the luxury of vacation. The 5 bedroom, 4 1/2 bathroom log cabin is tucked away in the woods of Deep Creek Lake. Just a 10 minute walk from the lake itself and from Deep Creek State Park with campground, sand beach, Discovery center and playgrounds, this house offers a variety of amenities. During the day, play a game of volleyball on the private volleyball court, go for a round of tennis at the community tennis court, go down to the docks for a swim, hit the slopes at the critically-acclaimed WISP ski resort (a mere 10 minute drive away), and enjoy the beautiful woodlands surroundings on a hike. In the evening, relax in the cedar wood sauna, get warm by the outdoor fire pit, or go sledding. There's plenty to do at this property. The house is like none other. Each bedroom is built around a theme- the rooms are as unique as the surroundings. Select rooms also comes equipped with a flatscreen TV with library of movies. Built with kids in mind, this home will make a perfect getaway for families and friends alike. The dining table can fit up to 16 people. The home has heating, A/C, and 4 TVs. In the winter, enjoy the warmth of the rustic indoor wood-burning stove. In the summer, relax on one of the 3 patios. The home also has a vast forest for a backyard, perfect for some nature wandering. The house will accommodate to anyone and everyone's needs, and will make you feel right at home from the second you step foot in the door to the second you leave.

We built this house for ourselves and enjoyed it for many years. We hope you will enjoy it too. Lara, Alex (Potomac, MD)
Owner purchased this House in 2003
Why Owner chose Swanton
This is customer-built log house to raise our two girls. Everything in the house is family and friends oriented, and everything carries a spirit of hospitality and love. We used to spend every weekend and longer time when our girls were small, but now unfortunately we cannot come here often and would like to share the beauty of this house with other people

I realize luxury is a relative term, but we were disappointed.
Every culture has it’s own taste, but we were personally turned off by the prominent Russian alcohol and figures of naked ladies. The house itself was clean, but the construction and finishes were not luxury standard. The bedding and towels were clean, but not luxury or matching. I was not comfortable with my parents and children staying there, just because it wasn’t the standard we were expecting for our vacation. We decided to find other accommodations, but did attempt to use the sauna, which never warmed up past 70 degrees after sitting in it for an hour and a half. Perhaps it was a user error, but we followed the instructions quite specifically. The parking area was not plowed, sanded or salted, and my suburban couldn’t get enough traction turning around in the snow without hitting trees and rocks, so we had to back down the entire drive to the street. (I have lived in upstate New York, so I know driving in snow.) It’s all in the details! I wish the family all the best, and know that this property will be wonderful for a group not expecting luxury accommodations.
Wonderful place for a large family.
The place was perfect for my stay. Lots of common space, and has everything you need. Very closer to all things Deep Creek Lake.
Very Nice and Pleasant !!
Great place for getting together with friends and families.
Dear Satish, your family and your friends! We are very happy you liked your stay in our house, and hope you will be back.
Wonderful weekend at Deep Creek Lake!
My family rented this house for the weekend and it was wonderful! The wooden house is beautiful and unique (has a sauna, jacuzzi, and swings for the kids). We very much enjoyed the layout of the house, especially the location of the bedrooms and the availability of bathrooms in each of them. Adults settled on the third floor of the house in master bedrooms, while the children were more comfortable on the second floor, where there are two adjacent bedrooms combined with one bathroom.
On the main floor there is a large family room along with a spacious kitchen, so it was convenient to gather with the whole family. There is also a large deck with a grill and a table for barbecue.
The house is very conveniently located 5 minutes walking distance from Deep Creek Lake, and a 5 minutes drive to the state park and discovery center, so we were never been bored. Our children were delighted and loved it as much as we did!
