About the property

Amazing Lake Front Log Home, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 14)

Identical Twin Log Homes! - (Sleeps 14 each)

Rent one or both. Beautiful Lakefront homes with spectacular unobstructed water views on one of the larger parts of the lake (not a back channel). We invite you to Bear Hollow and Raccoon Lagoon, premier 3800 square foot Mountaineer Log Homes. High end furnishings, meticulously maintained, million dollar properties.

These popular rentals have the best, unobstructed lake front views in Deep Creek! Many Deep Creek lake front homes have obstructed views of the lake due to dense trees the state does not allow owners to remove or they may also have deep slopes to waters edge. Not these homes. Only 50 feet to waters edge with level grass lot. Motor your boat into each home's Type-A dock with the marina just a block away for launching or rentals.

Please see rental calendar for availability. Calendar shows availability for either home. Be sure to check out our VRBO guest book for former guest's comments.

Set in the heart of activity in the Northern lake section of Deep Creek with grocery, movies, restaurants, shops and all the activities minutes away-including WISP Ski area.

Basswood tongue and groove ceilings and beautifully finished log and oak interior walls, these homes glow with a golden warmth that invites you to come in and get comfortable by the native stone fireplace overlooking beautiful Deep Creek Lake.

Bear Hollow and Raccoon Lagoon were designed and outfitted with full guest comfort in mind, including double sided staircases, two over-size master suites, each with its own large private bathroom. Bask in your bubbling hot tub outside after a long day of boating or skiing. All high-end beautiful furnishings, loaded kitchen, games, DVD's, surround sound stereo/and TV. Free high speed WiFi. Very clean!

Enjoy the lower level game room with pool table, full refrigerator, lots of games, DVD movies and a wet bar and second fireplace. You will be truly amazed at the expansive lake views and professional decorating at Bear Hollow and Raccoon Lagoon.

No smoking, please. We welcome our furry friends with a fee.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything it was advertised to be. Great setting, five large bedrooms, four and a half baths. Nicely decorated. Completely furnished kitchen with all the tools and accessories you could want. Good sized yard that ends at the dock, gas grill, hot tub, pool table and more.

Nice place as advertised

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice place for a great rate. The house was just as described on this site an in the pictures.

The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is that the house needs some seasonal maintenance. A few screws and bolts loose throughout the house that made us think we broke something. The eaves need cleaned of the various 6-8 legged critters that have taken roost there, too. The grill needs a deep cleaning. The cleaning crew on check-in day missed a couple beer cans and some lingerie left by the previous tenants. Honestly, nothing major, just a few suggestions for some easy improvements.

But those things wouldn't prevent me from renting the place again. It's in a great spot and if you're looking for a place that's right in the middle of things (but still is a quiet spot), has plenty of room for the kids to run around and plenty of room for the adults to be a family and individuals, go for this one.

House is an amazing location directly on the lake with a beautiful flat front lawn to the lakefront and your own firepit and dock.

It was beautifully furnished and the pictures do not do it justice-it's very updated!

It was impeccably cleaned and anything you could want was in the home (except the things that Stacey clearly states on your check in info to bring)

The views from every room are gorgeous and it truly felt like our family was staying in a home away from home.

Stacey was amazing with suggestions for what we could do with kids and a dog. She was so quick to respond to any question we had.

We are already asking to book again for next year!

Great property, very spacious

  • 5 of 5

Bear Hollow was prefect for a multi family weekend away. Plenty of room, well appointed house, beautiful views of lake. Boat slips made it easy to rent a boat and utilized it for the whole day. Loved having the fire pit for camp fires at night, nice to have plenty of chairs as well. House and hot tub was clean and well maintained. We would definitely rent again.

Former best kept secret

  • 5 of 5

This was the 4th or 5th time we have stayed in Bear Hollow and my husband and I could not be happier. This is our dream lake/mountain home. We have stayed in other accommodations in the area but these sister homes are the very best you can find. So many desirable amenities, very close to local hot spots (including the adorable coffee shop, Arrowhead market and the Honi Honi), and the backyard with dock and amazing views have us sold as very happy return customers year after year. Also, the fact that these houses are dog friendly makes them an A+ in my book. Thank you for allowing us to make wonderful family memories in your gorgeous log homes!

Relaxing vacation on the lake

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Bear Hollow and we enjoyed this trip better than the first. The weather was perfect. The accommodations were excellent for our family and friend group of 9(actually 10 with the dog). The property was clean and well-maintained. I have already recommended this property to a friend who just happened to mention to me that he was looking for a 5 bedroom property on the lake for his family vacation. I gave him one of your cards, and I am sure he will be in touch! The younger adults enjoyed the white-water rafting at WISP, and we all enjoyed renting a pontoon boat for a day on the water. The brick-oven pizza at Mountain State Brewing Company, and the food and drinks at Boardwalk and Honi-Honi were excellent.
