About Julianne Carlson, Jeff Carlson

Owned by three brothers who helped build the original house with their father and mother. The family camped out in a tent for a while before undertaking the building of the 'bunkhouse', the first structure on the property. It's a cherished piece of hertitage loved by the entire extended family, completely rebuilt in 2013.

Julianne Carlson, Jeff Carlson purchased this house in 1958

Why Julianne Carlson, Jeff Carlson chose Swanton

Great beach with gentle access on quiet Green Glade. Some of the best water skiing and fishing on the lake.

average rating of 4.857143 based on 7 reviews

This house is a stunner. It's very very clean, beautiful craftmanship, lakefront property.

  • 5 of 5

Same as aboveWe all arrived safely on We (14 of us), absolutely loved the house from the layout to the detailed craftsmanship, it's a stunner. We canoed, hiked, used the fire pit, some of us swam in the lake...and we all enjoyed the music next to the fireplace. It was one of our most relaxing and beautiful vacations. My relatives were already asking when we can come back :-).

This house was clearly taken care of with great care, and the 1950s touches (like the many old scales on top of the kitchen), to the wooden touches on the dining room, are so beautiful. It also had everything you need, so we overpacked. Honestly, I stood at 4 star hotels that can't compare to this place.

We treated this home with the greatest respect, and would love to come back again to build more memories.

Beautiful quiet lakefront getaway with friends

  • 4 of 5

Yearly ice fishing getaway with friends, but without the ice this year. House was well stocked and enjoyable for all of us and enough space for everyone to not be crowded. Hot tub not available during winter months (not listed as such in the amenities) and would have been great for the abnormal 60 degree weather in February. Quiet southern lake location and community was nice for walking. May try again in hopes of ice next year!

Perfectly Designed for Vacationing Families

  • 5 of 5

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!

gorgeous home and setting

  • 5 of 5

We met for a family reunion, and had a great time visiting, playing tennis, boating and hiking. The home was spacious and I can't say enough about the kitchen! Well stocked, better than my own. The owner was easy to work with. We definitely plan on returning.

Larry & Brenda B

  • 5 of 5

We gathered our family here to celebrate Christmas and New Years, coming from Washington, DC,Virginia, Indianapolis, and Illinois. There were 14 of us and the house easily accomodated all of us. The house was clean and had all the linens, towels, and kitchen needs we needed. We cooked several meals and had everything we needed. The owners were very easy to work with and answered questions quickly. The view is beautiful and we enjoyed the hot tub. We thoroughly enjoyed the fireplace and wood-stove. There was plenty of room to be together or to get away in different corners of the house. Wisp Ski Resort is within 25 minutes as well as a good grocery store and a few fast food restaurants and a sit down one too. We enjoyed a day trip to two Frank Lloyd Wright Homes - Falling Water and Kentuck Knob. It was perfect for our holiday.

Great Friends summer reunion

  • 5 of 5

We tried Deep Creek for the first time for our annual friends' vacation! What a wonderful week! We are a large group of adults and children ages 11-17. The house was comfortable for our large group. Every night we sat on the deck at the large picnic table for dinner! The cupboards were well equipped with essentials and had plenty of linens and towels. The kids enjoyed the hot tub, And sitting around the large firepit every night was one of my favorite parts of the day. We were able to dock our boat and spend the day tubing and taking boat rides out for icecream! We all also enjoyed kayaking, fishing playing in the water and just being together. Our group loved hiking at nearby Swallow Falls and an exciting day white water rafting the Yough! The 9 hole golf course 5 minutes was surprisingly challenging and well manicured. (that's coming from seasoned golfers).

The owners are friendly very easy to work with. Thanks for a great week! We hope to come back.
