About Ashby Heath

I have been coming to Deep Creek Lake since I was a baby, and purchased this home with my husband and 4 young children last year. We live in Baltimore, MD.

Ashby Heath purchased this house in 2013

Why Ashby Heath chose Deep Creek Lake

We were looking for a lakefront house that had the space for our large family, and that offered the privacy, nature and outside amenities that are what family vacation are made of!

What makes this house unique

Located in a private deep water cove at the northern side of the lake, this house offers a convenient location near everything, but away from it all! Boasting a beautiful lakefront location and nearly an acre of nature to explore, on a quiet and private dead-end road. The home is perfect for families that want a good old-fashioned lake vacation!

Mid summer getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice vacation here during the middle of a summer heatwave. Temps in the upper 80's made midday in the main floor somewhat uncomfortable while downstairs was still nice. The dock was great . Everyone enjoyed swimming and just floating around. The dock becomes shaded in the early afternoon, which was perfect for our needs, having small children. Wakes from the main lakes barely make a ripple by the dock , very safe . Fire pit was nice. Ashby was very helpful. Would recommend.

Perfect home for families, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here and had wonderful time. The house is perfect for families. At one point there were 5 adults and 3 children and there was plenty of room within the house for the children to play and others to have their own space- also a large kitchen. The location is beautiful and restful. We enjoyed going down to the dock and swimming and fishing- good for the young ones. One night we built a fire in the pit and roasted marshmallows. Ashby was very helpful and responsive. there is a good information booklet in the house -also recommend going to visitors center when you arrive. we swam and played tennis at Herrington Manor, rented a boat, and hiked and swam at Swallow falls. Every night was ice cream at he creamery and there are plenty of good restaurant choices for families.

Lovely Home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spend a fantastic week at Serenity Cove. The location was new for us, although we have been going to Deep Creek Lake for the past 20 years. Every time we drove over the mountain we saw something new. 3 bear cubs, a fox, deer, a buck and great birds. The house had plenty of space with an awesome kitchen. Every night we enjoyed wonderful meals on the expansive deck overlooking the lake. The dock and fire pit were great for water fun and late night Jiffy pop. Thank you, for sharing your home with us.

Perfect vacation site

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for us. We had four adults and four children with us and they could play in the water, fish and canoe without heavy boat traffic. The house was spacious, the view from every window was beautiful and it had everything we needed. Loved the hot tub.... Great experience..

Great Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation at Deep Creek Lake, and we had a great time. There were 6 adults in our family group. The house was very clean, well equipped and comfortable, with plenty of room for everyone to spread out. Even though we stayed in August, the lack of air conditioning was never an issue. There are ceiling fans and plenty of windows to open and enjoy the mountain air. The cove is beautiful and very quiet. There were ducks to feed from the dock, deer in the yard, and a great fire pit for a campfire at night. The hot tub was immaculate. There are plenty of activities and restaurants within a short drive. Antiques, Alpine Coaster at WISP, miniature golf. We rented a boat and explored the lake and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. We would highly recommend this property and would vacation there again! The owners are very friendly and easy to work with.
