About the property

Partial Weeks! 2 Family Rooms, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths, Sleeps 10, 2400 sq ft

Cabin Sweet Cabin - Deep Creek Lake - Our cabin is for you if you would like to be in a quiet neighborhood off the main road. Fully stocked kitchen, beautiful furnishings and log beds add to the mountain charm. We have lake access with a boat slip (small fee if interested) so you can bring your own boat or rent a boat during your stay.

Enjoy the neighborhood amenities like the fishing pond, picnic areas, playground and lake swim area or sit outside on the deck and enjoy the fresh mountain air. Great for a family with kids or a romantic getaway. We are not on a busy road so let the kids play outside & enjoy the quiet.

There are 6 State Parks with waterfalls & hiking nearby as well as the WISP Mountain Resort which has year-round activities such as zip lines, mountain roller coaster, segway tours, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding & the white water rafting course. Nature is all around for you to enjoy.

Flexible rental days: Want 2 weekends during your summer vacation? No problem - just reserve your dates early!

New Home with 3 levels of living space: fully stocked kitchen, 2 family rooms & game room with Foosball, ping pong table and large round table for playing games. Plenty of room to relax and have fun. New furnishings throughout!

There are plenty of games and books for the whole family to enjoy when you want to stay home and relax. Or you could take in the mountain air while sitting outside on the large deck. On the cool days and nights you could warm up inside by the fireplace or outside by the fire pit. Firewood included.

In the summer, enjoy the lakefront where you can relax on the community dock, take a dip in the roped off swim area or picnic by the lake. You can also bring your boat or rent a boat and use our boat slip (small fee if interested). Golf is just a mile away and nearby towns have arcades and mini-golf. Memories for a lifetime....

Fall Activities: In the autumn the fall colors are a site to see and the lake is quieter than in the summer. Come visit the nearby parks for spectacular views, hiking and site seeing too. You might just see some wild turkeys, deer or bears.

If you want to be on a main road this house is not for you. There is no traffic or cars zooming by. We are in a quiet neighborhood where your kids can play outside with no worry. This is a quiet neighborhood!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by email or phone. Thank you.

Why Kim Messina chose Swanton

We are the original owners of Cabin Sweet Cabin. I have decorated the house and provided amenities that I would want to have if I rented a home for vacation. You will find a fully stocked kitchen, towels & linens delivered for your vacation and firewood for your campfires. We have ping pong, Foosball and plenty of games, books & videos for all ages for quality time during your vacation. There is also plenty of seating inside and outside for 10.

Guestbook comments from the owner

(Note from our Welcome Book visitor page) We had a wonderful week! The cabin provided all the amenities of home. Traveling with three kids under the age of 3, your cabin provided to be the perfect place to stay! The kids couldn't get enough of all the deer in your backyard! and we were able to find so much to do in the surrounding area.

We have been taking this trip for over 12 years now always staying at a different location. This is the first time we are planning a repeat visit to the same place.

Thank you for all you did to make our vacation so memorable!

What a wonderful, relaxing vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time and would recommend this vacation home. It was so peaceful and wonderful being in a brand new house!! I did not want to go home.

I have used HOMEAWAY before and the rentals are always the BEST!

The kitchen even had everything we needed. See our reservation for this summer. We cannot wait!

The cabin was great!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the cabin. Same as the previous year, the cabin is absolutely spotless and like new! It’s stocked with just about everything that you need – cooking supplies plus more than just the basic utensils filled the drawers…even electric outlet protectors to keep the little ones safe.

As before, the owner was great…even beyond our stay. I left my briefcase with my work laptop at the cabin and didn’t discover it until I left home to go to work that Monday morning. Since my entire workday is dependent on my laptop, I texted Kim around 6:20 a.m. and crossed my fingers. I got a reply in minutes, and was talking to Kim by 6:30! She confirmed and arranged that I could go back and get the laptop, and by later that morning, I was back at work, in business. Kim has always been very efficient and great to deal with.

We spend the weekend with our two grown children and their spouses, along with our three grandchildren. We had plenty of living and sleeping space, and we all really enjoy sitting around the campfire in the back yard.

We highly recommend Cabin Sweet Cabin – you won’t go wrong!

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying here. Very clean and a perfect setup for a large family. The owner, Kim was very helpful and nice! She even had a welcome basket waiting with s'mores fixings and glow sticks for the kids! Great having the basement as an extra place for the kids to play. The guys enjoyed playing golf at the course in the community. Spent most days at the lake access. Thanks for a nice vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you Kristen. For future renters I'd like to clarify that the Golf Course is in the neighboring community which is about 1 mile from our house. Kim

Was the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc ? 100%....!!

Was the property clean and well-maintained ? Yes - neat as a pin, and CLEAN...!!

Did the owner provide good customer service ? Good? Excellent....!!

Would you recommend this property to your friends or relatives ? Absolutely!!

The community beach & picnic area were great, and the kids enjoyed walking there several times, as well as the back yard - we used the fire pit at least 3 nights - and thanks for the Welcome basket which included all the makings for S'mores!!

Lovely vacation cabin!

  • 4 of 5

Our family really enjoyed Kim and Martin's lovely cabin. It was plenty of room for all 10 of us, and we enjoyed cooking outside on the grill and building fires in the fire pit. The beds were very comfortable (the best we've ever had in a vacation cabin!). If we return to Deep Creek we will likely stay here again!

Great home away from home get away : )

  • 5 of 5

Everything that you would want and more on your vacations is at this rental. Nice, quiet and relaxing area in the woods but, not to far away from anything that you might want to do at the lake. The house and everything in it is exceptional. From the large size rooms, to all the beds in the bedrooms for your family/or your friends. To the game room in the basement and the deck off of the dining room that will lead you to the fire pit in the back yard. And I can't leave out all the different wildlife that you might see walking all around the cabin anytime during the day. Awesome place : )
