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 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.

Return to the Birds Nest

  • 5 of 5
When it came time to plan our second trip to Deep Creek lake, we didn't consider any other location. The Birds Nest is the perfect cozy house with everything you could possibly need. A fireplace for chilly mornings, a hot tub for relaxing after hiking and the perfect location. Close to State Parks, restaurants and a short walk down the driveway to view beautiful sunsets on the Lake!
We will miss our breakfasts on the deck while deer stroll through the woods, sitting on the beach (1 mile away) and our hikes through Swallow Falls State park.
Polly is a gracious host, providing any help or information needed. We only wish we could fit our family of 15 in the Birds Nest when we return to Deep Creek Lake next summer!

Owner's Response: Rita and Lynn,
It was such a delight to see you back at The Birds' Nest enjoying all the activities that the cottage and area offer. The location is superb for both active guests and those who wish for a quiet escape and a place to kick back.
Have a great time next year when you bring the entire family to Deep Creek Lake! Stop in to say hello, if you have time. We look forward to your return to The Birds' Nest at a future date!

View of the lake, right next to Deep Creek Lake State Park, clean, has great internet and DirecTV for relaxing after hiking all day. The hot tub helps there, too.

Short drive to Oakland and less than a mile to a small market, a bar, and a pizzeria.

Four of us (all 28-30 years old) had a great time there, and all wished we could stay longer. Would recommend for anyone.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you and your friends had such a great weekend in The Birds' Nest, Conor. Yes, the hot tub is so relaxing - especially after a day of outdoor activities! I wonder if you went up to ASCI to check out the white water course that was the site last month of ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships.

The Birds' Nest location is really convenient for all lake activities and for the many places to visit in Garrett County.

We have tried hard to provide all the things our guests need in a vacation home and it is always rewarding to hear that people love staying there and plan on returning!
