About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

The view is glorious. Spending time on the deck looking out over the lake is a fantastic experience.

Just steps from the new Adventure Sports Center. Adventure Sports Center International (asci) is home to the world’s only mountain-top whitewater course and to a diverse array of adventure sports opportunities.

Swallow Falls are just 10 minutes away. The Youghiogheny River flows along the park's borders, passing through shaded rocky gorges and creating rippling rapids. Muddy Creek Falls is a crashing 53-foot waterfall – a spectacular sight. Tall hemlocks dominate the silent woods. The meandering trails through Swallow Falls guide hikers to some of the most breath-taking scenery in Western Maryland.

Enjoy the feeling of wide-open-spaces even inside this amazing stone and cedar chalet with it’s cathedral ceilings and vast amount of windows. Beautifully decorated, Emerald Overlook is a gem in every category of vacation wants and needs!

Fabulous Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a wonderful week at Emerald Outlook. Pictures do not do justice to this property. Walking in and looking out at the lake was jaw dropping. The house was clean and well maintained. Our grandkids are ages 8-16 and the oldest family member, (me), 67. We all had a fun time. Something for everyone. Most relaxing and fun vacation I can remember. Close to attractions and reataurants. Very convenient. Can't wait to go back. We miss it already!

Great Ski Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Three couples with 4 young children (2-5 years old) stayed here for a ski weekend. The house was a great fit for all of us. Owner was a huge help and very accessible for every question. Property was in good shape and was well-stocked. It was a very short walk to the Wisp slopes (Main Street, an "expert" run. It is not a technical run, just steep) or a quick drive to the top of Wisp, where you can access all of the runs. You could also easily ski back to the house (no walking required!) after a day on the slopes. Would definitely stay again.

Fun and Friendship

  • 5 of 5

Several couples spent a few days at Emerald Overlook. We were very comfortable and really enjoyed time on the deck. One of us remarked that he felt 10 years younger just sitting out there relaxing and enjoying the beautiful view.

Fun filled weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and family rented this cabin for a "getaway" last fall. The house is very spacious and impeccably clean! We arrived at night and were shocked to wake up to such beautiful views! The deck is perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning. The owners were gracious enough to provide firewood for us. Our son had a blast making a small fire in the fireplace and couldn't wait to call us all downstairs to see it! Unfortunately it died down before we got to see it :( but he was very proud of his hard work! The owners also provide board games and movies which the kids loved! We also did a little cooking in the kitchen and found that they had everything we needed.

I would definitely book this place again! Two thumbs up!
