Why Mickey Nye chose Swanton

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

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.

Service, comfort, location

  • 5 of 5
The home is as lovely as the pictures portray. What is truly amazing is the level of service that the owner provides. They really do care about the enjoyment that your family shares in their home. Make no mistake - this is their home that they truly share with you. There are pictures abound of their family travels (which are extensive). We were contacted twice during our stay to ensure we were enjoying all the amenities the home and location had to offer.

The home is high above the lake and it is an invigorating walk to the dock, but it is awesome. I am 55 and enjoyed each hike to and from the boat we kept at the dock. Saw a bald eagle in the cove as we were heading out on the boat. Did not expect that one! The fire pit is incredible. The owner provided wood was plentiful. We could spend every night by it and think we were in paradise.

Thanks for everything Mickey!

Owner's Response: Hi Jim,
Thanks for the review. It was great having you and your family as our guests. Glad you enjoyed the photos I have on display. We haven't had the opportunity to see the Bald Eagle in our cove although we know of another spot on the lake where an Eagle nests. Looking forward to having you return with your family and your boat. Sincerely, Mickey

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.
