We stayed here with 3 girls under the age of 7 and 6 adults. There was plenty of space and the layout of the home allowed us to always feel we could each sprawl out. The home wasn’t cleaned as intended before we got there but Ruth quickly apologized, offered a discount on our stay and had a cleaning crew onsite within an hour. She was wonderful to work with and the home is truly fabulous. The girls loved the air hockey table, making s’mores and playing in the nice sized yard. The adults loved the pool table, dart board and watching the herd of deer cross the yard nightly. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly and we walked to check out the dock area although we were off season for swimming or boating. The walk to the dock is quick and the lake is beautiful. We cooked in the kitchen for every meal and it is well appointed. Loved this house and would GLADLY return. Thank you, Ruth, for sharing your home and really jumping on top of our cleaning mishap so promptly. We appreciated everything.
Very roomy house. Very clean as well, but microwave did not work .
Might need some updated furniture, but otherwise everything was great.
Convenient and comfortable getaway for medium sized extended family.
Our family enjoyed a Thanksgiving holiday at the Mountain Lodge. Overall the lodge is very comfortable. The living/eating space is roomy and furniture is well arranged for multiple groups for conversation/TV watching/or private reading. The kitchen is well equipped. The game room with darts, a pool table, and air hockey was kept busy.
The bedrooms on the two upper floors were comfortable and convenient to bathrooms. The bedroom in the basement was just OK, with concrete floors and limited window coverings.
The flat front yard -- somewhat rare at the Lake -- was nice for outdoor activities, though the weather didn't cooperate this year. The street is not too steep and not busy, so good for casual walks. The dog enjoyed the deer herd that wandered by a couple times a day.
One annoyance: on our last evening we were discussing our overall impressions of the place and someone remarked that a powder room on main floor would have been nice. My daughter rechecked the on line listing and saw there is supposed to be one. We searced and finally found it behind a door that had seemed to be locked and we assumed was a private space. The latch on the sliding door opened only with a screwdriver or flat knife. Perhaps the knob or handle had been removed.
A wonderful house!
My family and I visited from October 4-7 and had a wonderful time at this property. There were absolutely no problems, the house was cleaned, had all the necessity things to cook, play games, and different activities. We will definitely rent this house again.
Wonderful stay despite weather!
This was a wonderful vacation for our extended family of 6 adults and 5 kids, ages 3 months to 15 years old (and one golden doodle!). It rained most of the week, but we never felt cooped up in this beautiful house. Everyone had their own spot, but there was also lots of room to be together. The house was well-maintained, and we felt very comfortable there. The owners were extremely generous and helpful during the entire process. We loved it and are already talking about making plans for next year!
A delightful place to stay. The place was well prepared.
We enjoyed the boat dock and the game room down stairs. The kitchen was well equipped and roomy. The house was clean and well maintain. No complaints, even from my mother LOL.
Deep Creek Lake is a great place to come and relax. But if you want activity, there is plenty to do. There is boating and personal watercrafting in the summer and skiing in the winter. There are tours and white water rafting, ATV rides through the woods, golf and mini golf, go carts, bumper boats, arcades, horseback riding, and much more. Try a new activity like dogcarting or dogsledding when you're here! At least 8 movies are playing at the Garrett 8 Cinemas at any given time. State parks such as Swallow Falls and Savage River dot the area. At a state park or on a private trail you breathe of fresh mountain air as you see nature up-close and personal. Our home is central to all of these activities.
