Why Mickey Nye chose North Glade Hills

This property is our second home so it is much nicer than a typical 'rental'. We spend a lot of time at Deep Creek Retreat with our four children. You will see lots of personal things throughout the house with each of our kids 'claiming' one of the bedrooms as their own and with lots of enlarged photos that I have taken from our travels around the world (India, Nepal, Italy, Switzerland, Ireland, Colorado skiing, Canadian Rockies etc).

We want to make our guests feel very much at home while staying with us. I want you to feel like you're my sister and I just tossed you the keys for our home for your own little weekend get-a-way.

Our cove is very private, as it is somewhat shallow. There is a huge advantage to this as there is no fast boat traffic, only the occasional bass-boat. Our kids enjoy swimming off of the dock and crossing to the other side of the cove and play in the grassy area.

Kayaking up the cove and into the creek is one of our favorite things to do at the end of our boating day. We usually take turns in the three person (2 adults, 1 kid) kayak. Keep the noise down and you may see lots of wildlife. We enjoy going out at 9 am on the boat, returning about 3 or 4 pm. Then we chill on the boat, enjoying a cocktail or beer while the kids play in the water, lay on the tube or kayak in the cove and creek.

We have a large outdoor fire pit that is great for enjoying some family time. You have a nice view of the lake from the fire pit and can watch the glow of the evening sky above the house as the sun sets in the west. I built a stone wall with PA stone which makes for a very nice backdrop to the fire pit. We provide a limited amount of wood for your fire.

I also like to communicate with our guests after they arrive to be sure everything is going well. A phone call after you arrive can be expected. I am always receptive to a call if there are questions or issues with the house. Thank you

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Mickey. Not sure if this is the proper place to write a review but suffice it to say we were delighted to share your place and appreciated all the amenities included. For the Grandsons the foosball, pool table, basketball hoop and tetherball were all put to good use when they weren't on or in the water down at the dock. The kitchen facilities were well stocked and convenient. We very much enjoyed morning coffee on the deck and evening fires at the fire ring also the hot tub. Thanks for all

Quite Cove

  • 5 of 5

House is on a very quite cove and does not have the boat traffic that the rest of the lake sees. House was exactly as pictured and was very comfortable for the whole family. The downstairs game / TV room was a great plus for the kids. Deck was awesome for dinners as the yard is shaded which was a nice break from being in sun all day while enjoying the lake. Dock was a perfect match for our 19' boat. We spent several evenings enjoying the fire pit and hot tub. When we weren't on the lake Wisp resort and local parks offered a number of fun activates which everyone loved (mountain coaster, white water rafting, mountain biking, zip lines etc.) Stairs down to the lake are indeed not for suited for the elderly or infirm but made me feel less guilty about missing the gym for a week. Owners were very helpful, easily accessible by email and phone which made the process of scheduling the vacation a breeze.

Owner's Response: Hi M&L, Thanks for the great words. We enjoyed having you as our guests. We agree that our cove is very special due to very low boat traffic if none at all. Glad you enjoyed the fishing. Our family also enjoys gathering at the fire pit and "chilling" on the dock lake side. We use the steps and landings as our "aerobic workout" which we also always need more of and put that to good use. Cheers Mickey

Family Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our families from Virginia and New Jersey met at Deep Creek Retreat for a post Christmas getaway. We were a party of nine and the house had more than enough room for us. We were able to check in early at no extra cost so it felt like we had an extra day added to our stay. The Christmas tree was a great touch for our secret santa exchange! Mickey was great and called us the first evening to make sure all was good. The weather was not great (no snow) so he gave us some great tips to maximize our stay. We did some hiking, visited Falling Water and Simon Pearce, and took a trip down the mountain coaster at WISP. After some busy days we took advantage of the amenities of the house. Steaks on the grill one night and a nice dinner prepared in well-stocked kitchen another. Once we were ready to relax we had to decide between gathering around the fire pit or hanging in the hot tub. We really enjoyed our time here and hope to return again next year.

Owner's Response: Hi Dave and Heather, Thanks you for the kind words. We are glad you had a great time while being a guest in our home Deep Creek Retreat. We enjoy allowing our guests to have "early check-in" at no extra cost when we can. That and late check-out do make the stay feel so much longer. I am also glad that our tips on the area were useful to you. We are looking forward to having you return as our guest and friend. Warmest regards. Mickey & Phyllis

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I spent an extended weekend with my family and my sister's family and now have memories for a lifetime. There was so much to just right there at the house, from the kayaking to the bonfire to the spa. And all on a very quiet and peaceful cove. The kitchen was well stocked and the house had all the amenities you wanted. We all felt very comfortable and at home and would definitely return.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the Deep Creek Lake house in July. Even though our family members were of various ages, everyone found something they enjoyed. It is a very beautiful area with lots of outdoor activities available. The house was very comfortable and the large deck was wonderful! Most of us ate breakfast on the deck looking down at the lake and enjoying the wind rustle through the trees. Probably the favorite place to gather as a family was the fire pit. S'mores all around!

Owner's Response: Hi G, It was so much fun having you as our guest. As we spoke during your stay and afterwards, it was obvious your family had a really nice time. Glad you liked the fire pit, the hot tub and the use of our kayaks. Thanks for your thorough review of the house on your exit and finding someone's missing item. See you next year. M

Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at DCR. Beautiful setting. Very relaxing. Kitchen was very well-stocked with all the supplies we needed. Very clean. Felt like a 'real' home and not just a rental! Kids loved the basement and fire-pit. Will rent again. Thank you!
