About Kam Gillespie

We moved to the Deep Creek Lake area in 1993 when we purchased Haley Farm. We bought the lake cottage in 2000. Its a wonderful area to live and vacation.

Kam Gillespie purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Kam Gillespie chose Deep Creek Lake

This is the perfect place if you want to be on the lake and close to the ski slopes.

What makes this cottage unique

You have the convenience of being right on the lake and minutes from the ski slopes and even white water rafting (the only mountain top top white water rafting course is 10 minutes from the cottage)

We felt at home as soon as we arrived, except with a much nicer lake view

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful view of the lake is visible from just about every room in the house. A long, glassed in porch spans the entire front of the house with a lovely view of the lake. From the Master bedroom, I could watch the lake while laying in bed. The home was cozy, comfortable, and well-furnished. We had everything we needed and plenty of room for a fantastic stay. The kitchen opens into the living area, so you are not cut off from friends and family while cooking. The home is located close to the main part of town with restaurants, shops, and boat rental facilities. We rented a boat for the week just a short hop down the lake. This part of the lake is especially busy on weekends with lots of boat traffic, but it lightens up during the week. The lake is wide enough to swim off the dock without worrying about the boats. It is peaceful and quiet during the mornings and evenings. We rarely heard any of our neighbors. There are a lot of steps from the top parking area down to the house, and then down to the dock, but the steps didn't pose a problem for any of us. The owners are very responsive and easy to reach. We truly enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting again in the future. Thanks Kam for everything!

Nice Old house, but the steps are very dangerous to walk. Not for older folks or real young chidren

  • 3 of 5

This cottage is apparently an older house that is built onto a sloping side of the lake.

There is good parking but the steps down to the house are steep with the very first step having a cinder block lip that you could trip on and go tumbling.

Then you arrive at fieldstone steps with no handrails at the side door. There is no real front door. The steps then go down another couple of layers. One to the dated gazebo- deck. Then there is another layer of steps down to the dock. The railings on these layers need to be refinished as they are old and full of splinters. One of the main fieldstone top step stones was missing.

The house itself is clean and the big porch facing the water is very nice. The master bedroom has a view, but the bathroom needs to be updated. The fireplace did not work as the pilot light was not lit and I did not want to have to go through the process of relighting it.

The kitchen and dining room are fine.

The doors have some issues with the locks. Most locked some are broken.

There are two bedrooms upstairs. There was no TV upstairs. There is a useless chair and open room at the top of the steps. Washer and dryer upstairs worked fine.

The cottage is in a great location, but really needs some updating and repairs.

There is a hot tub but it is under the porch, not on the deck near the Gazebo. The water needs to be changed weekly as it was full of soap suds when you turned it on.

There is another house that is so close it looks like it is part of a duplex.

Main concern were the steps.

This was a very peaceful and relaxing vacation.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was very clean and well maintained even with it being older. There were a lot of steps so got a workout just by going in and out. We enjoyed the dock right on the lake and the hot tub during a storm! Great vacation.

Older home with a gorgeous view and great manager...

  • 4 of 5

We had a great vacation staying in this home. We are a family of four with twin 10 year old boys. The kids had plenty to do, whether playing by the lake or skiing at Wisp. The view of the lake with this home is amazing! You are right on the lake's edge and windows are abundant. Kam was extremely prompt in replies, accommodating, and helpful answering questions. The house was also very clean.

The only reason it doesn't get five stars is due to the dated nature of the bathrooms and fixtures. And based on the updated kitchen, I would imagine the bathrooms are soon to be taken care of.

Overall, a great house with a great view!

Great, private get away !

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. The cottage was beautiful and well maintained. We really enjoyed how much space we had and it was the perfect amount of privacy. The kitchen was well equipped and the dock was a great place for us to hang out all day Saturday! I wish we could have stayed longer, we would definitely stay again in the future.
