Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a quick, relaxing getaway and, as he would say, I am a little "high maintenance" when choosing vacation properties. This property was gorgeous, and obviously very well taken care of. It would be nice for a large family vacation, but it was also great for just the two of us. For a couple, everything you need is on the main floor (master bedroom suite, great room, kitchen, decks etc.). Very private and quiet, and many outdoor spaces to enjoy. As the others have said, the owner was very helpful. My only hesitation in writing this glowing review is that the property will be less available when we wish to return (and we do)!

HAS EVERYTHING - PLUS MORE. GREAT VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have found a more beautiful house with all the amenities imaginable. My favorite is the outdoor fireplace outside the living room. It is surrounded w. lovely, comfortable outdoor furniture. The hot tub, the heated ground floor, the gorgeous pool table. Up-to-date kitchen with all that is needed - plus reverse osmosis filtered water. ...can't say enough.

And the owner is so accommodating.

Our 9th Visit to this Lodge and never disappointed

  • 5 of 5

Our little group of 13 has visited Lazy Bear Lodge for the past 9 years! When we arrived at the home - we could not have been happier to see some of the wonderful upgrades this owner did since our last visit. (Actually, there has not been a year that we were not surprised by the great deal of thoughtfulness this owner puts into her rental on behalf of her guests) This year we enjoyed Sonas radio out on the deck, keyed entry making everyone's arrival easy, swings and new chairs on the lower outside and a gym membership for all staying at her Lodge. Every year we are supplied with such her generous gift of firewood and we are always appreciative. Upon entering the home, the first thought that comes to mind is -'this feels like HOME'. Lazy Bear never feels like a house - it feels like your home. Each and every room is super comfortable and doesn't disappoint. Some reviews mentioned some thoughtful suggestion and to that I respond: We have had 13 showers take place and not once have we run out of hot water. The home is always clean and spotless and ready to receive us - never run down or lacking attention - if there are any 'dirty hand prints up the stair wall’ we have never noticed. You will not be sorry you rented this spectacular home. We will be there for our 10th anniversary next fall - and have no doubt that Alayne will continue to put her renter’s first each and every time! That is what puts her above all others we have ever rented from – her attention to detail and truly caring for those who visit her HOME.

Owner's Response: So GREATFUL to have such awesome "Lazy Bear Family." I know we always laugh about feeling like family because it has been so long..9 years, wow! Where has the time gone?!..but this is truly the reason we built this lodge. After visiting the Deep Creek area for years, we had a vision of what the perfect lodge would look and feel like. We work tirelessly and are constantly looking to improve for just that reason...building relationships with and caring for our guests as if they were our family. That is the best reward of all! Looking forward to year #10!! Thanx Kim!!

Quiet, Cozy, Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Lots of relaxing time in this beautiful place. The wood fireplaces were cozy and really set the mood, especially the one outside on the deck. We were able to spend some great bonding time by the fire and in the hot tub. They are close enough to each other that we were able to enjoy both at the same time and still be together. The Sonos music system is awesome! Our group loves The Fall season and this Lodge took us to a whole new level To enjoy it. We can't say enough great things about the owner at was there for us every step of the way. Thank you we will be back

Great experience & very lovely property!

  • 5 of 5

This property is gorgeous and provided all the amenities we needed. Myself & 8 other adults stayed for a weekend. We arrived to a very spacious & clean house. The house is neatly tucked away & provides much privacy. We were able to enjoy the hot tub & lovely deck w/ the fireplace while listening to a lilttle music w/o disturbing anyone. I have no complaints from my whole experience when booking this property. I really loved how responsive the owner was during the entire process.
