ROMANTIC LAKEVIEW COTTAGE WITH HOT TUB AND AMAZING SUNSETS!

Swanton Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths. Sleeps 4. Dog friendly!

Deep Creek Lake is listed in 1,000 PLACES TO SEE BEFORE YOU DIE! (US and Canada)

Looking for a getaway in Maryland?

The Birds’ Nest is a tastefully decorated, romantically secluded lake-view vacation home at Deep Creek Lake, Maryland. It’s an enchanting choice for a special occasion: honeymoon, wedding anniversary, girls’ weekend, or just a quiet escape.

You bring your lovebird; The Birds' Nest will provide the atmosphere!

Nestled among tall oaks and lush rhododendrons, this tastefully decorated, 2-bedroom home is conveniently located at 296 State Park Road for year-round accessibility. It is 0.6 miles from Deep Creek Lake State Park and approximately 6 miles from The Wisp Ski Area. The charming little town of Oakland is about 5 miles away.

The lakefront, across the road from the property, offers one of the best views of the lake — the sunsets and star-watching are magical! You may swim or launch your kayak from here, though there is no dock facility.

The downstairs of The Birds' Nest has a well-equipped kitchen, one bathroom, a living room with a propane fireplace insert, a study area with WiFi access for your laptop computer, and a bedroom (double bed). Upstairs is a large bedroom (queen-size bed and a futon) with a sitting area overlooking the woods, a walk-in closet, a half-bath with washer and dryer, and a surprise nightlight! A flat-screen television with satellite connection, a DVD/VCR player (with video library), and a CD player are located in the living room downstairs.

High-quality bed linens and towels are supplied at no extra charge; bring your own toothbrush!

Relax in the sunken hot tub in a very private resort-like setting after a day of outdoor activities.

Enjoy the landscaping and seasonal waterfall on the property.

The deck offers a view of the lake and has a picnic table with a gas grill. There is a fire-ring outside The Birds’ Nest for toasting marshmallows and telling tall tales!

We welcome your house-trained family dog, too. Fee required per animal.

Wild animals love this location and visit regularly. We do ask, however, that you do not feed the bears!

Our goal is to fulfill the need for a superior rental vacation home that is not a “McMansion”! The house is 900 square feet of well-planned space with high-quality furnishings. It sleeps four people comfortably, with separation between the bedrooms for privacy.

Keywords: cabin, cottage, lake front, lake view, cozy, romantic, secluded, getaway, escape, relax, intimate, pet-friendly, washer and dryer, hot tub, deck, fireplace, fire ring, fully equipped, WiFi, Christmas and seasonal decorations, value, discount.

Thank you for the charming house. We had a great weekend exploring the state parks and relaxing in the hot tub. The whole area is so beautiful, we can’t wait to come back sometime in warmer weather. Your attention to detail made the whole experience at The Birds’ Nest delightful. Thank you so much.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you both had a fantastic weekend, Tori. Deep Creek Lake truly is an all-season area and The Birds' Nest location is perfect. Snow moved in last night reminding us that winter is around the corner. The Birds' Nest is snug and cozy (and the hot tub is fabulous in the winter, too!) What a perfect escape from the rigors of work. Thank you for coming; we look forward to seeing you again.

Great, great place

  • 5 of 5
We first stayed here the weekend of October 5, 2013 for a romantic getaway and were not disappointed. Tucked back in the woods for a private place so no boat or raid traffic noises. The stocked kitchen allowed dinner and breakfast to be made and then eaten from the deck with a view of the lake. And when the mood strikes you, you can walk down the driveway for a little table and bench right on the lake. The hot tub was another way to relax and soak in the serene atmosphere.

I planned this trip for us around the fall to catch the colored leaves and it paid off big…it was beautiful. A typical day included a hike through the woods to Swallow falls followed by a romantic candle light dinner on the deck and relaxing in the hot tube. Perfect for any group, but an excellent place for the romantic in your life.

Wish we could have stayed there longer….

Owner's Response: It was such a pleasure meeting both of you, John. I am glad you saw and did so much while at The Birds' Nest. It is in a super location and close to many activities in the area whether it be lake activities or hiking, biking or sight-seeing. A sign stating "Deep Creek Lake - Maryland's Best Kept Secret" used to greet visitors but the secret is now out and the sign has been removed! We really enjoy sharing our favorite haunts with guests.
Thank you for choosing The Birds' Nest. We look forward to meeting you again.

Wonderful week at the Bird's Nest

Wonderful week at the Bird's Nest
  • 5 of 5
Our 6th visit to Deep Creek Lake found us at the Bird's Nest and it was a delightful place to be. My husband is in charge of finding our lodgings on our getaways, and he did not disappoint by bringing us here. The Bird's Nest is a cozy, comfortable, well-appointed and very well-maintained property within easy access of everything you might want to do while in Deep Creek...or the perfect place to just relax and enjoy Mother Nature. I loved the close proximity to Deep Creek Lake State Park and the peace and quiet you could find while still being in the heart of Deep Creek Lake. Polly is a gracious and superb host who makes her guests feel welcome and very comfortable. We recommend the Bird's Nest highly to one and all.

Owner's Response: Julie and Keith,
What a delight to meet you and to hear that The Birds' Nest provided all you needed for your vacation. Yes, the location is superb.
It was lovely chatting with you when you were on your hike and I was taking my daily walk with Maggie Dog!
The Lake is quiet now that Labor Day is here. It won't be long before we will be gearing up for winter. I am looking forward to guests enjoying the beautiful new propane fireplace insert. No more lugging in logs! They can be used in the outdoor fire pit while the snow is on the ground!
Thank you for choosing The Birds' Nest. I hope we will meet again.
