BEAUTIFUL VIEW FROM OUR DECK - 10 MINUTES TO WISP.

Swanton House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Witness a glorious sunrise! Have breakfast on our deck, breathe in the pure mountain air and marvel at our majestic view of the western MD mountains. You'll feel like you're in a tree house! No mosquitoes!

Visit the Discovery Center at Deep Creek State Park, swim or go boating in the lake. Summer days are warm; evenings nice and cool for sleeping. Autumn Glory is fantastic in the fall. In the winter you can ski at wonderful Ski Wisp (only 10 minutes).

Then, enjoy a drink in front of our stone fireplace or relax in the hot tub while the kids play foosball, cards, board games or the keyboard in our spacious den downstairs (equipped with a propane stove). Go out on the deck in the evening to view a wonderful Heaven full of stars and, if you're lucky, a full moon also! Life doesn't get much better than this!

Linens are provided. Please bring your own beach towels. Owner pays cleaning bill!

About The Owner

We are now retired from an independent school in Severna Park, MD. We have four beautiful daughters, three super sons-in-law and eight wonderful grandchildren.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why The Owner chose Swanton

We are from New England, love snow and skiing. We have lived in Anne Arundel County, MD for 35 years which is beautiful, but doesn't have as much snow and as many cool summer evenings as Garrett Co. does, so we chose to buy a vacation home in the western MD mountains.

What makes this house unique

Deep Creek State Park is 5 minutes from our home. There are many activities at the Discovery Center. A lovely afternoon can be enjoyed with a picnic lunch (tables and grills are supplied) at the beach, swimming, playing volleyball and just taking in the breathless view of the lake. You can launch your boat at the Park also. Movie theaters are only 5 minutes in the other direction.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We wanted to thank you so much for welcoming us into your home to enjoy the beautiful views and a comfortable home to relax in. We truly did enjoy our stay at your home; everything was wonderful! The house had everything we needed and it was great to get away and enjoy time with friends outside of our busy days at work. Thank you again for all your help with our trip and providing such a lovely home.

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5
We went out for a weekend get-away with all-adult friends, 7 people altogether. The house was spacious yet cozy, and even though we had one rainy day where we could not do much outside we had a wonderful time in the house. We especially enjoyed the fussball and the hot tub. Everything was nice and very clean and functional. Very convenient to have a another fridge in the basement. We used various features of the house, TV, charcoal grill, some of the board games that were there, kitchen was well equipped, everything worked out the way we hoped. Enough parking places in front of the house for all cars. View to the lake from the porch is very nice, especially in the early mornings and evenings. The village shop is just a minute away by car, Swallow Park with its four waterfalls is maybe ten minutes away, some of us played golf and we also used the lake for boating, great place for a weekend.

Our family loves Sunrise!

  • 5 of 5
Our family has been going to Deep Creek for many generations. We have rented Sunrise on many occasions when we bring extended family or friends up to the lake for celebrations and holidays. Sunrise is the perfect house to accommodate a lot of people. We have hosted numerous birthday parties, anniversaries and family reunions at the house. The back porch has a great view! The house sleeps many. The kitchen is open and a good place for gathering. It is in a convenient location and the owners are incredibly easy to work with.

Great for Outdoor Folks!

  • 4 of 5
House was spacious and just perfect for 5 hunters. The owner was very accommodating and could not have been better to work with. Floors needed a little TLC, but that was not a problem for us. Kitchen was well stocked. We plan to return in November 2014.

"Sunrise" in Swanton

"Sunrise" in Swanton
  • 3 of 5
Our first time visiting "Sunrise" and Deep Creek Lake. We loved the area and hope to visit again soon.

The house could use sprucing up in terms of its kitchenware and furnishings. The home is not very old, but feels very dated on the inside. It is not set up as a neutral space the way hotels or other rentals I experienced tend to be. There were many personal photos of family members and artificial flower arrangements. Mattresses, especially on the lower level could use zippered enclosures and the house would benefit from new bedding and linens. Sofas on the main level were stained. Bathrooms and kitchen surfaces were clean, but floors throughout the house could use more thorough vacuuming/cleaning.

If you're splitting the rental fee with several people and are not the Martha Stewart type, this rental would be fine and will sleep many people. The owner is a very kind and sweet retiree and was easy to communicate with throughout the booking process.

Our favorite local restaurants included Brenda's Pizza, Trader's Coffee House, Cornish Manor in Oakland for lunch and dinner (further away but worth the drive). Pizzeria Uno gets busy on weekends--get there early or you will wait 45 min. to be seated. Pine Lodge Steakhouse was mediocre and overpriced for what you get. There are many activities at the Wisp Ski resort even during the summer. I also recommend getting the state park pass and visiting Swallow Falls, Herrington Manor (beautiful lake & family-friendly beach area), and New Germany State Park (smaller lake, but scenic & quiet).

Owner's Response: We are so sorry your experience at Sunrise was not as good as it might have been. We do aim to please our guests in every way we can and most of the time we are successful. Our "country home" is usually very clean and we do apologize if this wasn't the case when you were there. There have been many improvements since your rental 9 months ago. We will take a look at the kitchen furnishings and certainly check and take care of any other areas that need "sprucing up." Sunrise is our home; there are family photos which most of our guests enjoy. It reminds them that real people own this home and they usually treat it as if it was their own, for which we are very thankful. Thank you for letting us know how we can make Sunrise better for all our guests.

The house is inviting, well appointed and has everything you will need for a great Deep Creek Md vacation. Centrally located to the outdoor activities of the area and multiple dining establishments make this an ideal location. The deck off of the kitchen is an ideal place for early morning coffee or late afternoon cocktails and the hot tub is a great place to relax after a busy day. We will be back.
Thanks to the owners for the user of their property!

Great Weekend Get-a-way

  • 5 of 5
Had a great time in deep creek and your house was perfect. More than enough room for my wife and I and our kids. The hot tub was great and the view of the lake this time of year is beautiful. The sunrise over the lake is well worth waking up for. Can't wait to get back to Deep Creek and will definitely plan on renting again in the future.
