Cozy, Quiet and Well-Equipped
I stayed at Almost Gone for 3 nights with my dog as a get-away from life at home. The house is one of the best that I've rented in the US or Europe. It is well-maintained and comfortable. There are 3-way bulbs in the reading lights (yeah!!) and everything works: the outside lights, the lamps, the appliances, etc.... I also appreciated the well-equipped kitchen, including knives that are actually sharp. Bonus! The bed is very comfortable, as are the sofas. The community is very quiet and beautiful, and the view from the house out over the water is peaceful. Loved that it was far away from anything commercial, yet close enough to go out for dinner or to grab something at the grocery store/deli. I plan to return.
Beautiful home with awesome views!
Such a warm, inviting home with spectacular views! Owner was fabulous! Will be back next year! :)
Relaxing, beautiful, cozy
Our stay at Almost Gone was exactly what we needed on this blustery cold weekend. From the moment we stepped onto the porch, that was fully stocked with firewood, until the moment we drove out, our stay offered us nothing but glorious views; warm, cozy fires; fun on the snowy hill; connecting with each other over silly games on the soft, cushy couches; and blissful sleep in the comfy beds. Even my six year old cannot wait to return. Mike, the host, is incredibly attentive and offers support whenever it is necessary. Hopefully, we can get back sooner rather than later!
Great place on the lake
A great place to stay on the lake. Beautiful scenery, plenty of wildlife (no bear sightings thankfully), some fall color still on the trees, lovely house, and very quiet and peaceful at this time of the year.
I came east and my sister came west to meet me at Almost Gone.
Kitchen very adequate. Beds comfortable. Bathroom very nice. I would recommend a rubber skid proof mat in the tub tho. (Perhaps one day Mike will add a half bath upstairs.) Couches very comfy. Love the deck and covered porch.
The owner was always amiable and accessible for problems at the house. He made sure any issues were promptly taken care of.
I would return if ever traveling that way again.
Wonderful Lakefront Cabin
This is a beautiful cabin with a tremendous view of Deep Creek Lake. It is a tremendous location for the late fall because of the quiet location and abundance of wildlife. Mike is a phenomenal host. He made the visit very enjoyable and worthwhile. The flowers for my girlfriend’s birthday were a very special touch and made for a great entry to the cabin on our first night there. The cabin is beautiful inside and out. The view of the lake from the living room and the desk is just awesome. The secluded location is great and be sure to keep a lookout for a LOT of deer on the way and out. Thank you Mike for a terrific weekend.
My boyfriend and I rented "Almost Gone" for a relaxing getaway and were definitely not disappointed! The property owner (Mike) was very attentive both before and during our trip. We have been renting off of VRBO for a few years now and this is one of our favorite rentals. Very peaceful location and beautiful view of the lake from the back deck. The house has a cozy feel and we really enjoyed using the fireplace. The kitchen is nicely stocked, including a nice variety of spices. We had decent cell service even before connecting to wifi (we have T-Mobile). Plenty of stocked firewood and the charcoal grill is very nice. We were disappointed it was a little too chilly for us to take advantage of the kayaks, but we are definitely planning a trip back and will make sure to utilize them then!
Definitely don't miss hiking at Swallow Falls/Herrington Manor state park, the hike and the waterfalls and bathing pools are spectacular among old growth forests.
