About David and Pearle Howell

Come kayak with us. We leave 2 kayaks, canoe, rowboat and paddle board for your use. We have had many happy travellers visit the Owls Nest and enjoy our quiet cove. Our family enjoys Chrismas here every year in this cozy retreat. My Canadian wife gets her skiing 'fix' at nearby Wisp. We personally maintain and clean the home before and after each booking. We have many years of experience renting the Owls Nest to travelers. We try to be flexible with move in and move out times and all money is refunded if given 45 days notice.

David and Pearle Howell purchased this Cabin in 1987

Why David and Pearle Howell chose Penelacres

We bought this property because of the western exposure of the lakefront, location at the end of a peninsula with no drive thru traffic, and deep lake water afforded year round because of close proximity to the dam. The property is four miles from Lodestone and 6 miles from Wisp Ski Resort and offers year round enjoyment. The location is perfect for all water sports.

What makes this Cabin unique

The cabin is move in ready and left like a home so tea, coffee, napkins, toilet paper and basic essentials are already there. It is great quiet place to get a break from the city without a lot of preparation.

                                                          Matthew W.

                                                          This was me and my fiance second time visiting the property and we absolutely love it, its the perfect little cozy cabin.owners David and pearl make sure you feel right at home the second you walk through the door. There was a bottle of wine waiting for us on the counter, wood burning fire place is fully stocked with wood and they even leave papers there to help you out around the house. The hot tub on the back deck facing the lake is the perfect way to end every night, there is even speakers out side. The grill is outback with a full bottle of propane for you to use however out second time there it was way to cold for that. There is even a nice little playground outside if you have little ones, we absolutely loved our stay both times and we are already planning our next trip. This time we are going to try the warmer weather and bring our two boys 13yr and 3yr. Anybody reading this really needs to look into staying here i promise you wont be disappointed.

                                                          Everything you could possibly need!

                                                          We enjoyed our time at the Owl's Nest. Beautiful view, great hot tub and fun fire pit outside. It's small, but cozy; perfect for our family of four.

                                                          Refreshing, absolutely peaceful!

                                                          Melissa M.

                                                          This was our first trip to Deep Creek and the cabin was everything that we had hoped it would be. It was a very nice, relaxing weekend for myself and my significant other. Although we had planned to be outdoors the weather did not allow for much of the outdoor activity but we enjoyed the cozy fire, the view of the lake and the wildlife. Looking forward to return soon for a much longer stay! Highly recommend and the thoughtfulness of the owners was much appreciated. No hassles, no need for anything, everything was at hand! Thank you for such a peaceful getaway, Melissa & Chris.

                                                          Owl's Nest is a lovely little cabin, beautifully sited and well maintained

                                                          David C.Pittsburgh, PA

                                                          The Owl's Nest cabin is sited right off the lake on a flat lot and boasting a gentle slope down to the dock. The cabin is owned by the Howells, and it is obvious they take real pride in the maintenance of the cabin and the lot. The cabin is a bit small, but it is well suited to a couple, in fact it makes for a lovely romantic getaway. It's obvious that the Howells spend their own vacations at the Owl's Nest as the rooms contain a wealth of conveniences and local artwork. We enjoy visiting the Owl's Nest every year.

                                                          I couldn't thank you enough for sharing your cozy cabin with us over the weekend in September 2017. The owners had been very thoughtful of every details in making the cabin feels like home. We are greatly appreciated their efforts. What truly amazing was we celebrated my hubby's birthday and he said there was no better place to spend his time than at the cabin with his family. We enjoyed the canoe, the kayaks, the hot tub and the making of S'more , the wine ( which were very thoughtful and very nice gifts from the owners). I'd definitely recommend the place, book your vacation here, you will love it!!!
