About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

Great Escape is one of the few remaining, Deep Creek Lake Originals. An attractive log cabin with an exterior featuring log and stone. This rustic home is dripping with charm from the hand-hewn logs that make up its facade, to the chestnut paneling and flooring, to the 2 natural stone fireplaces. The landscape is something to behold. It offers 2 stone patios, a large lawn with a gradually inclined walk to the shores of Deep Creek Lake; easy to navigate and perfect for lawn games! You will enjoy the privacy of the quiet cove, perfect for sitting by the lake all day long. Great Escape is nestled among mature spruce, hemlock, and tall pines, giving the landscape both sun and shade throughout the day. Inside this cozy home features vaulted ceilings, stone floors in the kitchen and bathroom, its 2 main level bedrooms each feature their own independent charm, the master with a beautiful window looking out to the lake. When travelling down the well maintained, level, all season road that will take you to your Great Escape, you will quickly appreciate its location; away from it all, but 10 minutes from everything. What are you waiting for? *NEW* Pet Friendly with fee.

Beautiful land and location.. inside needs work

  • 3 of 5

This cabin was in a beautiful spot on the Lake with a private dock and sweeping lawn with fire pit. That was wonderful b/c we spent a lot of time outside. That was a five star.

However the inside of this cabin left a lot to be desired. It is dark and the lighting is dim. There was a mold smell permeating the house, and it seemed to be from the indoor carpeting that was old and discolored. The furniture was worn, but this is a "pets allowed" house, and I have found most pet friendly houses do not have very nice furniture or modern updates. I had expected that.

Still, the house seems a hodge podge in terms of how it was built. There were four separate light switch plates in one bathroom for various lights in that bathroom (shower, vanity, over the tiolet)... the light switches throughout the house were difficult to find.

The refrigerator is in the hallway next to the kitchen with the washer dryer.

Also, no bathroom soap provided for the house and very little toilet paper. We had to get our own at the store. All for 500$ a night (which includes all the fees from Coldwell Banker and such.) Kind of pricey.

Can't get enough!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is magical. From the minute you open the door. The kitchen is so well stocked. Breakfast there

was wonderful each morning. Travel down a hall with views of the lake, turn right into the greatroom where the fireplace goes from floor to ceiling with exposed beams. The owner has baskets of blankets to snuggle in. Windows to watch the lake and beautiful yard. Each turn you make finds another special room. Cozy warm, lots of firewood, plenty of time to relax and visit with family. Our dogs loved the yard and lake.

Wonderful cabin, great atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

The 123-Great Escape is a fantastic cabin in a wonderful location right on a slope leading directly to the lake. The cabin is spacious, and very charming, with rough hewed logs and 2 large fireplaces with room for roaring fires. There was an endless supply of dry firewood, making fires easy to start and fun to burn. We also used the outdoor fire pit to grill burgers and hot dogs one evening. The cabin was toasty warm, with plenty of hot water in the showers. I would recommend to anyone looking to get away and relax for a few days or longer. We brought our dog Daisy and she loved it !!!! Thanks for taking pets!
