Overview

Swanton Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom Cabin with Lake Access, Sleeper Sofa, 1 Bathroom, sleeps 8

The Maine Retreat is a quiet oasis close to the action of Deep Creek Lake but far from everyday. Vacationers familiar with Maine get-a-ways will absolutely love this setting-- A short trail walk through privately owned woods takes you from cozy, quiet seclusion to the beauty of Deep Creek Lake's shores.

Take a seat on the Covered Porch or take a stroll around the property-- 3 Acres of Private Woods, with a Trail to the Lake, are yours for savoring. Take the Canoe out and see if you can catch local bass, bluegill, perch, or walleye with the Fishing Rods, Tackle, Paddles and Lifevests we provide.

Within 10-15 min., you'll reach Deep Creek Lake activities, and when you return home, partying neighbors and bright street lights won't interrupt your view of the clear night sky, the beautiful sounds of nature, or peaceful alonetime with your loved ones.

The backyard firepit is sure to be a place where memories are made, roasting hotdogs, making smores, and catching up with those who mean the most.

More Features of The Maine Retreat

The large front and back yard offer plenty of Kid-Friendly and Pet-Friendly space for outdoor games, such as horseshoe, badminton, volleyball, and a Southern favorite, cornhole (beanbag toss). You'll find these and other fun items (frisbee, water guns, etc.) in our gaming closet. You'll enjoy hours of indoor family entertainment from the satellite TV, DVDs, Videos, CDs, laptop with WiFi, PlayStation and PS2 games on rainy mountain days. Bring your bikes, as the North Glade Hills community is a great place to ride. Kids can ride through the neighborhood and adults can enjoy the long country roads. Nearby Deep Creek State Park has hiking trails, boat launch, public beach with picnic areas and basketball courts, a science center, and tourist/info desk.

Our ALL-INCLUSIVE price is designed to save money and hassle during your stay. There is no security deposit. Linen service and cleaning service are included in the price (quoted on VRBO at 5 cents for itemization purposes). FREE wood is provided for the fireplace and firepit. FREE charcoal is provided for the grill during the summer. The property is also serviced by a local full-time property maintenance company ready to address any issues with just a phone call away.

The Maine Retreat has 3 clean, equal-sized, comfortably furnished bedrooms and a sleeper sofa. The well-maintained interior has amenities throughout which will make it feel like home. The fully equipped kitchen has hosted several Thanksgiving dinners, but private chefs can be reserved to provide escape from the kitchen as well.

About Pia

We hope you love our place as much as we do! We have enjoyed the many weeks and weekends spent away from the city, immersed with nature. During the week, we are busy professionals who help children and adults with special needs. On weekends, we've come to really enjoy peaceful, restorative weekends at DCL. We joined VRBO to share our home with others who we hope will enjoy using it when we can't.

Pia purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Pia chose Swanton

We love that Swanton offers Deep Creek Lake's four-seasons of activities without tons of neighbors. We prefer a bit of seclusion while maintaining quick access to the lake, park, etc.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cul-de-sac has just one full-time resident and our neighbors each have acreage that separates our homes. Still, we can walk down to the lake and take the canoe out to fish, swim, or paddle. We are close to all central DCL activities, including WISP resort, where we swim, play raquetball, workout, and soak in the hot tub for just $7/day (every weekend!). Not to mention ski! We viewed other homes in the area and just couldn't find another home that had the convenient location with privacy, lake access, and a traditional 'yard'. We wanted space to play old-fashioned games and soak in the sun! Best of all, the property reminded us of our many vacations to Maine. We put an offer on this house the first day we saw it.

The "Marraige" Retreat

The "Marraige" Retreat
  • 5 of 5
After a busy wedding weekend, the Maine Retreat offered a relaxed environment to unwind and enjoy all that the Deep Creek area has to offer. Greg and Pia were extremely accomodating throughout the reservation process and happily answered a million of my questions prior to our visit.
The description of the property is accurate. The Lake access is a short walk away and the house is tidy, well kept and has been updated nicely.
The large front porch has very comfortable seating and was a great place to sit and have coffee in the morning while the fireplace in the living area served as a great ammenity during the colder evening hours.
All in all, my wife and I enjoyed our stay greatly and will likely be coming back again!

Simply perfect

  • 5 of 5
My fiancée and I stayed at the cabin during a skiing trip to Wisp. The cabin was the perfect place to stay. It was very comfortable and very peaceful. The location was private enough where we felt we were away from it all, yet gave easy access to Wisp, grocery stores, and shopping. With all the outdoor activities in the area during the summer, we're hoping to go back very soon to spend some time on the lake and do some hiking. Thank you Pia and Greg for a much appreciated and enjoyed weekend at your cabin!

Great value and location!!

  • 4 of 5
Secluded yet within a 10 minute drive to big box stores, "mom and pop shops" and restaurants.
We arrived just in time for a beautiful "white christmas"
The cabin is very well maintained and clean. We had a couple of minor issues upon check-in but the management company took care of it pretty quickly--- especially considering it was the sunday before christmas. We loved walking the trails behind the cabin with our dogs down to the lake.
The only minor negative comment I can think of is ,that while the cabin is advertised as having internet--- you have to use an older pentium based laptop that is provided onsite-- it seemed to take a long time to view emails and web pages.. I think it would be very advantagious to just provide wireless internet with an access code for renters that would bring their own laptops.
Other than that --our 1 week stay was very relaxing and a memorable family vacation! We are already thinking about possibly booking a week in the summer to take advantage of the activities around beautiful Deep Creek Lake !!
Thanks-- Pia and Greg for opening up "The Maine Retreat" to us for the holidays!!

Owner's Response: I'm glad to hear you had a great time taking advantage of our unique property. However, I'm sorry to discover you struggled figuring out the Wi-Fi. We offer both Wi-Fi and a laptop, but you don't have to use them together. The laptop is a back-up for those who leave their own devices at home. If you ever return, please do not hesitate to call about any disappointments during your stay. Our Wi-Fi was professionally installed, so our computer technician is often available to talk guests through technical issues or even make house calls, if there were a problem. We hope to host you again and give you the 5-star stay you deserve!

Great getaway

  • 4 of 5
All in all this place was amazing. The only complaint I have is that the week I went it was very hot and the place has no air conditioning. Six of us went, loved being secluded but not far from of a drive to everything. Also the walk to the lake was nice also. Will definitely go again, my kids had a great time too.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay! Happy to hear you liked our home's privacy and took advantage of our little walking trail to the water. We often hear people find themselves walking more than they expect because of the convenience of the private trail. Unfortunately, you had an unseasonably warm week...Most summer days in DCL are mild and comfortable, which is why many homes in DCL don't have a/c. With that said, we want guests to be satisfied with all aspects of the home, so we are purchasing a/c for summer 2014 to better accommodate the range of guest preferences and cool the home on the peak heat days of July. Hopefully, when you return next summer, you'll like the change!

Very nice house, lots of fun playing in the snow!

  • 5 of 5
Very nice place to stay. The property management was very helpful and friendly. We ran into a few issues with the amount of snow (hardly anyone's fault!), and it would have been nice to have a shovel, but the property manager arranged for the drive and road to be plowed a couple of times, which was extremely helpful and relieving.

It was a lot of fun to have the sleds available, and all the basics were well met. Thank you very much, Pia and Greg!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your mid-March winter wonderland! Snow is one of the many reasons we love having 24/7 property maintenance help us out-- when you don't have a shovel, they bring over a plow and they come with a smile! For next year, we'll have more sleds and a shovel, for which ever snow activity you choose. Hope to host you again!

A Wonderful Time!

This pet friendly cabin was all we could ask for and more.......spacious, charming, and central to all activities on the lake. We truly enjoyed ourselves on our first trip to Deep Creek. Many thanks Pia for being so helpful and accommodating. We will be back!
