Why George or Barbara Akst chose Deep Creek Lake

We wanted a year round vacation home for everyone to enjoy. We have enjoyed many wonderful stays and hope you will make Fancy Free part of your family memories. We love being at the Lake so much, we recently purchased another lake home - at Lake Anna. Check out our new VRBO listing #459560.

What makes this house unique

We love this home. Once you arrive, you can be very happy never leaving the house. It is perfect for families whose members enjoy different activities...everyone gets to do what they want. That is what I enjoy most about being at Fancy Free II. The dining in the area is wonderful. There are two french restaurants in the area that we highly recommend.

Great place, just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every moment of our stay. Being so close to the water, we fished a lot; the docks weren't more than a 40 yard walk down a trail. The kitchen was enormous and the entire place was spacious. There was only 11 of us and we slept very comfortably. The pool table was a hit. Oddly we didnt spend much time in the basement rec room, which too is very nice. The sauna was great Saturday morning! The inside of the house was very clean and the linens and towels were in abundance. We didn't end up using the hot tub, but it was nice having that option.

All of these things greatly outweighs what few and minor problems we encountered. The grill needed a good cleaning (which we gave it) and the ignition was not working on it so we had to improvise. Also, after locking up the place around 10:05, we tried to get back in, but the keyless entry code must had changed already even though we technically had the place until noon. Thankfully we didn't leave anything in the house. Like I said though, I wasn't going to expect perfection, but we nearly got it. I would rent this place again in a heartbeat and many that came wanted the house's information for their own future use.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for letting us know about the grill and the keyless entry issues. I will notify the management company - the grill should have been clean. If on your next visit, you encounter any issues, please contact our local management company immediately so they can take of any problems. They are usually very responsive (within hours) and if not, then you can always call us!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time in your home. We had four families together for a week.( 8 adults and 5 children). There was more than enough room. The huge kitchen was a plus. Plenty of room for many cooks. Kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. Dock was a great addition. We brought our own boat so the convenience of the dock was a plus. Hot was used often. Fires at fire pit were great. We did have a very rainy week but still had a great time. Only complaint was the outside furniture could have used cleaning. The mulch seemed to be a nuisance because it was tracked in very easily by our shoes. I would definitely rent your home again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your honest comments. I will be sure the outdoor furniture is power washed before next season. As an owner who is very involved and takes pride in her home, I am very grateful for feedback. Barbara

March Madness getaways

  • 5 of 5

Full disclosure: I am the daughter of the owners. But while that inherently biases my opinion of the house, it has also given me ample opportunity to enjoy it. In particular, my fiance and I, along with his brothers and some good friends, have spent the last three March Madness weekends at this house. With two main living areas -- each equipped with a large screen TV -- these were truly basketball-filled weekends. But for those non-basketball lovers, such as myself, the layout of the house allows us to stay involved, without sitting on the couch focused on the games. The huge deck areas right outside the living rooms allow us to enjoy the view, while still socializing with the sports junkies inside. Additionally, with the location of the pool table in the loft overlooking the main floor living room, we can shoot a game, while again, still hanging out with the game-watchers below. This is just one example of how we've taken advantage of this beautiful home just a few hours from the DC area, but it illustrates the quality that I love most about it: there is something for everyone, and even if everyone is doing their own thing, you can all still be together.

Owner's Response: We, as owners as well as parents, try to accommodate the needs and desires of all our guests and family. We hope you will enjoy our home as much as our family and friends and let us know if there is ever anything we can do to make your stay even better. Barbara

Fancy Free II

  • 5 of 5

House was beautiful and can handle 16 people easily. Large and well equipped kitchen. Sleeping was comfortable for all and we had 16 adults and children. Location couldn't be better - right on lake with dock. Could fish from dock and rent boats easily. All had a wonderful time and will do it again soon! Wisp mountain within minutes with all it has to offer - mountain coaster, zip lining, white water rafting. We tried all and loved it! Great family vacation

Inside welcoming, outside not

  • 3 of 5

The inside of this home is lovely and offers every amenity a family could want. The outside, however needs a lot of TLC. One thing we love to do while on vacation is have campfires. This is something that we couldn't really enjoy here because the back "yard" is nothing but swampy mulch that you sink in when you walk on it. It is literally mulch atop landscape fabric and is mushy and damp and was like that the entire week, despite the sunshine. It just doesn't dry out. The weeds and brush on the path to the dock are overgrown and not sightly. I know it says lakefront, but that's just because there isn't a road between the home and lake. You really cannot walk down to the lake because of all of the overgrown woods and weeds and what looked to be poison ivy. The home inside is great as far as the size, amenities, and comfort. But we were extremely disappointed in the "yard". Or the lack thereof. Sitting in the hot tub was nice, but stepping out onto the nasty swampy mulch was gross and not comfortable.

Owner's Response: Ted and Lori - I am so sorry to hear about the outside issues. We just put the fire pit in this year and in the past have never had the issues you described. We will definitely address the issue as we want our home to be a five star place. Thank you for letting us know of your concerns. Gratefully, Barbara
