About Suzanne Riedel

We live in Baltimore, MD with three beautiful girls and 2 dogs who keep us very busy. George works in financial services for T. Rowe Price Group and Suzy manages the household. We enjoy traveling to our home in Deep Creek Lake and enjoying all the activities that this western Maryland paradise provides.

Suzanne Riedel purchased this house in 2006

Why Suzanne Riedel chose Oakland

We have owned in DCL for years but then found the perfect piece of real estate to build our dream log home in 2006. The home provides a setting very close to the lake, deep clear water for swimming and a dock to keep our boat for waterskiing and tubing. It provides western exposure for magnificent sunsets and a sunny dock all day. Also, for winter activities, it is only a 12 minute drive to Wisp for skiing and snowboarding.

Beautiful home with everything you need for a perfect family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better home for our weekend with friends and family for the long holiday weekend. The house has everything you could ask for, and the owners were very easy to work with when making our travel plans. We can't wait to come again and come back during the summer!

Nice location and home

  • 4 of 5

We visit DCL often, and this home, especially its setting on the lake, was one of the better experiences we have had. The two wood burning fire places in the house were ideally located and well used. The interior and exterior woodworks were unique and definitely create the feel of a log cabin. A log cabin with all the amenities! Although the weather was a bit unseasonal we made ample use of the outdoor firepit and huge hot tub. Swallow Falls State Park was very close by and the roads near the home were quiet and easy to navigate on foot for shorter walks. Overall a pleasant experience for three "aging" couples.

A little bit of heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at Jellystone, and we were not disappointed! In fact, it was even better than last year because we went a month later (early July rather than early June), and the weather was warmer. We had 4 generations -- from my 89 year mom to my 2 year old grandchild -- and there was plenty of room for all of us. It is a perfect setting for our family to converge for a wonderful family vacation. Jellystone is a beautiful log cabin with many amenities. We enjoyed board games at the big dining table, the quiet places for the bookworms in the family to read, time in the hot tub, swimming in the lake and bonfires at night. The setting is serene, and the house and yard are meticulously and beautifully maintained. And, as before, Suzy was a delight to work with and so responsive with any questions I had. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

Marvelous Home

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic property! Lots of space - kids and adults both had spaces to hang out separately or together. Wonderful kitchen. Decor was perfect. Hot tub was great and littles enjoyed the jetted tubs! We had a perfect long weekend family Christmas celebration! Would go back often! It's a don't miss vacation spot.

Property was amazing. Very tastefully decorated. Spacious and very well stocked. We had all the kitchen items we needed to make Thanksgiving dinner. The fire pit was perfect and the views fabulous. Everything was clean and well maintained. It was a very relaxing and beautiful home.
