McHenry Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Welcome to La Cabana! La Cabana is a delightful cottage located along the shores of beautiful Deep Creek Lake. Located off of Deep Creek Drive, the cottage is in the heart of all of the activities that Deep Creek Lake has to offer. Less than a five minute drive away are access to nearby restaurants, arcades, and skiing. NEW FOR 2010! We have added a washer and dryer to the unit plus have finished a complete bathroom renovation for the main bath.

The cottage offers a private yard and private docking facilities. With southwestern exposure on the lake, you will enjoy the sunshine until almost sunset. The yard at the lakefront features a picnic table for enjoying meals and a large swing to look at the lake and observe the beautiful sunsets. The waterfront offers a nice gradual slope into the water, making for nice swimming access. On the front of the cottage is a large deck offering wonderful views of the lake and lower yard. The deck offers a large table and chairs for outside dining as well as a glider for sitting and relaxing and taking in the wonderful views.

The cottage itself features 3 bedrooms (one queen, 2 full size beds), 2 full baths, an eat-in kitchen, living room, and separate family room. The kitchen is fully stocked with full size refrigerator, stove, and dishwasher. Supplied are eating and cooking utensils, including pots and pans for cooking.

For your added enjoyment and convenience, the cottage has central air conditioning, 3 color TV’s DVD, VCR and stereo.

We accept personal checks or money orders and require one half of the rent in advance to confirm the booking.

Fun Family Week

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 3 adults, 1 toddler & 1 GR dog had a relaxing & fun family week at La Cabana. The cottage was charming, cozy, clean & neat. Note: Unloading is an easier job when you park in the alley behind the cottage. We appreciated having the sliding glass doors between the kitchen & family room area. Liked our kitchen table meals together. Liked our quiet time in the LR area. Liked the updated Master bath. Liked being able to bring along our dog crate which we set up in the family room. The bisected property for dock access was not a problem & we enjoyed the dock’s spectacular lake view (& the swing too). Liked being able to cook out on the deck using the charcoal Weber grill. Liked having the fenced yard. Daily walks on Deep Creek Drive with my dog were pleasant. (Dog wearing orange visibility vest.) Enjoyed the beach area at Deep Creek State Park. Especially liked the 1 ¼ mile walking trail at Swallow Falls State Park along the waterfalls. (Ranger’s office doubles as gift shop – yummy home-made jams) We also walked the short but scenic trail from the McHenry Visitor’s Center up to Wisp (1 mile). Recommend Trader’s Coffee Shop & Brenda’s Pizzeria above. Also rented kayaks at Aquatic Center (within walking distance of cottage). We ended each day with an after dinner trip to the Lakeside Creamery for made on premises ice-cream. (Yummy!) All in all it was a memorable Deep Creek vacation. Thanks Rob for renting your cottage to us! Best Regards.

Great Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My family of six adults stayed here with our two dogs a few weeks ago. The house was very clean and there was plenty of space for us to spread out. The rental is off of the main road which felt much safer for when we had to cross the street to fish. The fenced in yard was great for the dogs.We spent most of our time outside during our visit and the private dock and fire pit really make this place perfect. Be sure to visit Swallow Falls state park while you are in Deep Creek. The hike was awesome with multiple waterfalls!

Awesome cottage!Great location!Great Email Contact

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over Thanksgiving in 2015. The weather was great for the stay. Rob has everything you could need in the cottage. The Backyard was great for our dogs and you could see the whole yard from the deck so you could keep an eye on them. 10 minutes from some really great restaurants. We ate at Will of the Wisp and had Thanksgiving at Dutch Daughters. Looking forward to coming back in the summer.

Awesome stay at LaCabana

  • 5 of 5

What a great find. We have stayed a few times in Deep Creek Lake. This was our best place to stay. The house was very clean and spacious. It was great having a family room in the back of the house also. Everyone could spread out. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook meals. The front of the house has a very nice deck. It was great sitting outside and eating our dinners. One of the best things I liked best about the house was having a fenced in yard. That was great for the dog. We also loved this area of the lake. We used the fire pit by the lake almost every night. Fishing was good off the dock. It was also nice for swimming and how you could gradually walk in. We had such a great time at LaCabana. The owner Rob is great to work with. He is very friendly and returns your calls promptly. We can't wait to go back again. What a great find!!!!!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

First I must say the pictures of the inside don't do it justice. I was surprised with cleanliness and layout. The bed that we slept on was very comfortable and the living room area was up to date and modern. The back room with the computer, pull out sofa,full bath, laundry room and entertainment center is also nice. Its almost like having your own studio apartment. Would be a great place if you have kids or guests visiting to sleep.

The dock itself is in a good location and not a lot of traffic going by in that area. We used the fire pit by the lake a few nights. Would recommend. The outdoor deck is nice for grilling or just to hang out on. The fenced in yard is nice if you have a dog. We parked our truck behind the cabin and trailer across the street by the lake in the designated parking area for the cottage. Also, if you are bringing a boat make sure you fill it up before putting it on the water. Gas is expensive on the lake!

Rob, the owner, is great to work with. He answered all our questions and got back to us in a short time. We have already booked for next year. Next summer can't come fast enough!

First class accommodations. All of the amenities were thought of and available. Very comfortable in all respects. Kitchen great for cooking and eating in. Great porch for sitting and grilling. The dock and lakefront are first rate. Fishing was very successful. Walleye and yellow perch for dinner and brought a bunch of fish home including catfish from the dock. Rented a boat from just up the streeta nd parked it at the dock for the weekend. The fire pit was fun, neighbors were friendly, played guitar and sang songs by the fire at night.

Excellent spot on the lake. Not a busy area with good privacy.

Will definitely return to this exact spot in the future. The owner was very nice to work with. An excellent place and Deep Creek experience.
