Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you so much for everything! We all had such a wonderful time and everyone was blown away at how beautiful your home was. I truly appreciate all of your help and time. We all decided that we want to make the Deep Creek trip an annual tradition and would want to stay at your home come next fall because we loved it so much! Thanks again for being so kind and helpful.

This property is our second home so it is much nicer than a typical 'rental'. We spend a lot of time at Deep Creek Retreat with our four children. You will see lots of personal things throughout the house with each of our kids 'claiming' one of the bedrooms as their own and with lots of enlarged photos that I have taken from our travels around the world (India, Nepal, Italy, Switzerland, Ireland, Colorado skiing, Canadian Rockies etc).

We want to make our guests feel very much at home while staying with us. I want you to feel like you're my sister and I just tossed you the keys for our home for your own little weekend get-a-way.

Our cove is very private, as it is somewhat shallow. There is a huge advantage to this as there is no fast boat traffic, only the occasional bass-boat. Our kids enjoy swimming off of the dock and crossing to the other side of the cove and play in the grassy area.

Kayaking up the cove and into the creek is one of our favorite things to do at the end of our boating day. We usually take turns in the three person (2 adults, 1 kid) kayak. Keep the noise down and you may see lots of wildlife. We enjoy going out at 9 am on the boat, returning about 3 or 4 pm. Then we chill on the boat, enjoying a cocktail or beer while the kids play in the water, lay on the tube or kayak in the cove and creek.

We have a large outdoor fire pit that is great for enjoying some family time. You have a nice view of the lake from the fire pit and can watch the glow of the evening sky above the house as the sun sets in the west. I built a stone wall with PA stone which makes for a very nice backdrop to the fire pit. We provide a limited amount of wood for your fire.

I also like to communicate with our guests after they arrive to be sure everything is going well. A phone call after you arrive can be expected. I am always receptive to a call if there are questions or issues with the house. Thank you

Wonderful HOUSE AND OWNERS

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay here at the Deep Creek Retreat. The house has everything you might need for a wonderful week or weekend. The owners were very hospitable and great to rent from. It's a quiet area, we were able to take walks, have dinner on the HUGE deck, sit in the hot tub and then have a fire in the fire pit later on. Thanks again!

Owner's Response: Hi HH,
Thanks for the great comments. We enjoyed having you as our guests. I am glad your "ladies weekend away" worked out as you planned. I am also glad that you had no worries docking your rented boat at our slip. We can't wait until you return for the "Ladies ReUnion Event" after the wedding. Yum......... Mickey

Amazing weekend in a beautiful house

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of 8 adults staying in the house for a long weekend and we had a fantastic time.

Firstly, there was plenty of room for us all (2 couples, 4 individuals) and we could have easily fitted in another 4 adults (providing nobody minded sharing a bed). Even bathrooms were not an issue, there are 2 full bathrooms upstairs, one downstairs and an additional toilet in the upstairs laundry. The kitchen is well equipped and we were not wanting for anything. In fact our only dilemma was trying to fit our ridiculous amount of food in the fridge (we had enough for twice the people for twice the length of stay). The kitchen is also not full of lots of leftover bits and pieces from other guests which is very nice. There are also towels there which you can use and every bathroom already had soap and toilet paper which was very handy!

While there we enjoyed the hot tub on numerous occasions! We didn't ever try to fit all of us in at any one time but I think we could have managed it. It really is very large and oh so wonderful. We also took advantage of the good weather and enjoyed some kayaking in the houses 2 person kayak (a little tricky to get out to the water but certainly not an ordeal) and at night we built a fire at the fire pit using wood we bought from a house at the end of the road. The house also boasts cable and wifi although we didn't use either very much. We also didn't really take advantage of the downstairs pool table or bar area.... we were too busy using the hot tub or playing board games.

There is honestly nothing bad we can say about our time at this place. The house is immaculate and truly beautiful. It felt like our home for the weekend. The location is also perfect as there are lots of near by trails and activities should you want them. The owner was also great and made sure that we got settled in and were not wanting for anything.

This review doesn't even really do the house justice. It was our little piece of heaven even if it was only for a few days. We hope to return in the not too distant future.

Owner's Response: Hi Helen,
It was great having you and your colleagues as our guests at our home. When we spoke after you arrived it sounded like everyone was having a great time. It was nice to hear that the house was much nicer than my photos portrayed. The hot tube is a big one, the newest on the market. I am glad you took advantage of the fire pit and kayak as well. We enjoy sharing both with our guests. It sounded like the late-check-out options worked nicely for your exit schedule too. We would enjoy having you return sometime soon; summer, fall and winter are all wonderful seasons. Thanks for the review and kind thoughts. M.N.

Perfect Getaway for Families

  • 5 of 5
This review is long overdue. Over Memorial Day weekend 2013, we stayed for a week at the house for an annual vacation with friends. Between our three families there were 4 kids under 3. Throughout the week we were constantly impressed with how well stocked the house was. There wasn't anything we needed that wasn't already there. The fire pit was the perfect distance from the house, close enough for our baby monitors to work while we enjoyed a warm evening. The owner, Mickey was extremely helpful. Coming from out of state we appreciated all his tips about the local area. We were able to enjoy local restaurants, knew where to get groceries and had all of our questions answered. The area around the home was beautiful which led to daily walks around the neighborhood. My husband caught a few fish off the dock. Overall, I would highly recommend a vacation here! We have already been talking about making a trip back when the kids are older so we can take advantage of the lake access.

Owner's Response: Hi C & G,
Thanks for the kind words. We were so happy to have you stay at our home. We try hard to make it special for all of our guests. It was our pleasure to share our knowledge of the DCL area with you and your friends from the Uni. We appreciated the words of advice for our daughter who is soon off to a University. Perhaps she'll find her way to the Citadel? Sincerely M & P.

Great Place to Relax and Unwind

  • 5 of 5
The house is a wonderful place to stay and the view of the backyard and lake from the deck is amazing. The weather was a bit on the chilly side during the week so we didn't rent a boat all week, but did take the kayak out one day before it rained on us. The lake is very peaceful this time of year. We used the fire pit and hot tub during the week and both were great (especially the hot tub!). The house is warm and cozy and you feel like you are at home (not like other places I've rented). The owner is very attentive and even calls the day of your arrival to ensure everything is going well (I've never had anyone do that before--nice change from other rentals). Played pool and backgammon/checkers with the family and prepared most of our meals there. Kitchen is fully stocked which makes preparing meals a breeze. Would love to come back and stay again in the winter and mid-summer.

Owner's Response: Hi S.C,
Thanks for the review, it was great having you as our guests. I was glad to hear when I talked to your Dad that everyone was out at the fire pit enjoying the evening and you couldn't accept my call; great priorities. We upgraded our grill based on your feedback too, thanks for this feedback during your stay. Looking forward to having you return soon. Sincerely M.N.

We're coming back!

My family joined my parents and my brother's family (11 in total) with the goals of relaxing and making memories. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. The house is well cared for, very clean and welcoming. There is plenty of room to spread out and a variety of amenities to enjoy. In fact, we enjoyed the kayak and the water activities so much that the kids never touched the x-box! They did enjoy learning how to play pool, playing basketball, relaxing in the hot tub (and it is a really souped up hot tub!), and making smores over the fire pit. I personally enjoyed the photographs the owner took during trips abroad which were tastefully placed in many of the rooms. The house is practical too--with a lovely, well equipped kitchen (and we prepared most of our meals so we used a lot of things!) and plenty of indoor and outdoor eating spaces for 12 people. Further, I can't say enough complimentary things about the owners. They were very attentive and helpful from the day we expressed interest in the property to the day we left. We had the opportunity to meet them the day we arrived and they very generously offered us a boat ride and tour of the lake. It was a wonderful way to start our vacation. We really never felt like we needed to leave the house, but when we did, restaurants and stores were just a few minutes away--and the ride to them--beautiful! We look forward to planning another trip to Deep Creek Retreat soon.

Owner's Response: Hi C.H.,
Thank you for the great words and compliments. We had so much fun meeting you on the day you arrived and taking you, your husband and sister plus the kids out for a boat ride and tubing. What a blast. Showing you around and getting you oriented on the lake felt like the right thing to do. I enjoyed following up and hearing about your experiences. Glad you liked the house and my photography too. Can't wait to see you again next year. A boat ride and tubing may be waiting? M
