Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 12

Your Deep Creek tradition begins when you choose the delightful 4 bedroom chalet Swimming Bear Lodge for your next stay! Located on a large wooded lot, you will love being surrounded by nature in this tranquil setting.

Step inside to the main level and immediately embrace the warmth and comfort of the Great Room. Large cathedral ceilings create a bright and airy living space while the warm wooden beams and walls add comfort and depth. An impressive wood fireplace lends promises of evenings curled up in front a crackling fire while the snow outside falls gently to the ground. The open floor plans leads you into your dining area and fully stocked kitchen where you will be able to prepare your family's favorite dishes!

In addition to the full bath, the main level also has two more bedrooms, one with 2 twin beds and the other with a Queen sized bed. Each bedroom has been beautifully decorated and offers everything you need for a peaceful night's rest. 

Head to the upper level area where you will find a bedroom with a King sized bed, a full bath. This space is the ideal place for the kids to retire to after a long day of playful adventure on the lake!

Feel like staying inside and enjoying time together' Go down to the lower level Family Room where you can spend your afternoons playing pool or watching your favorite movies on the large flat screen TV. The lower level also has a full bath (shower only) and your remaining bedroom with a Queen sized bed and a double futon bed, TV, and ceiling fan. 

Your amazement continues when you step outside and behold the magnificent backyard. Stargaze and unwind in the evenings in the bubbling outdoor hot tub or bring the marshmallows and gather with family around the outdoor fire pit. The kids will love running and playing on the large manicured lawn set back on a quiet little lane. A short walk away you will find your dock slip where you can dock your rented boat or spend hot summer days cooling off as you splash and play in the water. (Please note that this home has approximately 125 steps down to the water). 

Location is key and you and your family will love the close proximity to area activities. A few minutes south and you will discover the small town charm of Oakland, our county seat, which boasts antique shopping, Farmer's Market, and multiple dining options. Head north and less than 5 minutes away you will be tackling the ski slopes at Wisp Resort. Swimming Bear Lodge is spectacular Deep Creek home that will provide you and your family with a lifetime of new memories. Call today to reserve this amazing home!

Beatiful home with lots of space and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and i recently stayed at the property for a weekend getaway. I had previously stayed the year before.

When you walk in the first thing you notice are the beautiful updated hardwood floors. I have never seen such beautiful hardwood! The kitchen. Was newly renovated with stainless steel appliances and beautiful quartz countertops...new furniture through out. We loved the setting with its spacious outside decks and easy access to the lake. We also noticed there is a bonus room for sleeping down off the game room. This is a home i would love to book for the Holidays with family. Would highly recommend this home for summer sport or winter sport travelers as the skiing is a stones throw away!

Reviewer Comments:

We come to Deep Creek for a family vacation every year mostly minter time, but often for a 4th of July week as well. We've been to many houses. We do like this location a lot, the house is very nice, but very dated and needs a lot of up-keeping. At this point, everything there is very old and half broken. We couldn't unfold one sleeper at all, the bed frame in the basement bedroom is broken, over the stove microwave is broken as well, but instead of fixing it, they just brought another one which sits on the counter-top. Drive way was covered with the leafs which told me nobody was in the house since beginning of the fall. Little things that make it annoying to deal with, but overall not enough to get upset:). I would say that next time i would avoid this house unless i'd get a confirmation it's been updated and fixed.

We stayed at the Swimming Bear Lodge for 2 nights. The house was clean when we arrived and everything was as promised. There two full propane tanks, and everything else we needed.

Reviewer Comments:

We very much enjoyed our stay, but I want to give constructive criticism so things may be remedied for the next tenants. The property is nice, but the exterior of the home is very dirty (on the home itself.. cobwebs, etc.). We never did find the 125 stairs to the lake, as advertised. The shower in the basement is old and the water pressure in that shower and the kitchen is weak. We asked for maintenance for the inside fireplace, at around noon on Saturday and were told someone would be out that day. We called two more times and on the last call, were told someone would be out on Sunday. We never did see anyone and figured out the fireplace flue issue on our own.

Reviewer Comments:

We looked at this house, when it was for sale approximately three years ago. At that time the house was in very nice condition. It seems the new owners are not taking care of their investment. The carpet, upstairs is full of stains and needs cleaned. The hot water has a very offensive smell but the cold water has no smell. Thus the hot water tank needs flushed or replaced. Spider webs all around the exterior of the house. We actually spent time and removed them in order to enjoy sitting out on the deck. The bedroom, in the basement, was not appealing at all. We avoided that room during our stay. To sum it up, the house is beautiful but neglected.
