About The Owner

I am retired, live in Anne Arundel County, MD, originally from Vermont. My family and I love the beautiful country atmosphere in Garrett County, MD. We are skiers and enjoy the great outdoors. Sunrise is a very special retreat for us, but we like sharing our home with other families.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why The Owner chose Swanton

Sunrise is spacious, has a lovely view and is situated on Glendale Rd. which is plowed quickly in the winter - a real plus for snowy Garrett County!

What makes this house unique

Deep Creek State Park is 5 minutes from our home. There are many activities at the Discovery Center. A lovely afternoon can be enjoyed with a picnic lunch (tables and grills are supplied) at the beach, swimming, playing volleyball and just taking in the breathless view of the lake. You can launch your boat at the Park also. Movie theaters are only 5 minutes in the other direction.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We wanted to thank you so much for welcoming us into your home to enjoy the beautiful views and a comfortable home to relax in. We truly did enjoy our stay at your home; everything was wonderful! The house had everything we needed and it was great to get away and enjoy time with friends outside of our busy days at work. Thank you again for all your help with our trip and providing such a lovely home.

Great location. Great house.

The owner is so nice. The house is amazing. The open floor plan was the perfect spot for the family to spend time together. Great location. Feels secluded yet close to the action. I strongly recommend staying here

Our stay was nothing short of perfect.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented sunrise for a surprise ski weekend get away and the entire experience completely surpassed all expectations I had. I have been to Deep Creep Lake many times before but this was the first time for my family and I could not have hoped for a better time. The home was easy to find, clean and neat, and the perfect size to accommodate us all. ( 2 adult couples and 4 children) with room to spare. Truly a magical and peaceful retreat. It was also close to everything we wanted to do. The owner is wonderful and very responsive. I went into the weekend knowing she wanted us to have as wonderful of a time as we did. And it didn't stop there. The follow up was also amazing. The owner made sure we all have a fantastic time. Not that it was of any question. I will certainly rent from her again and again.

We have a keyboard in the den downstairs. If Susie, Jimmy or Mom need to practice their piano lessons while on vacation or the family wants to have a sing-a-long, it is available for use by our guests.
