House is an amazing location directly on the lake with a beautiful flat front lawn to the lakefront and your own firepit and dock.

It was beautifully furnished and the pictures do not do it justice-it's very updated!

It was impeccably cleaned and anything you could want was in the home (except the things that Stacey clearly states on your check in info to bring)

The views from every room are gorgeous and it truly felt like our family was staying in a home away from home.

Stacey was amazing with suggestions for what we could do with kids and a dog. She was so quick to respond to any question we had.

We are already asking to book again for next year!

Great property, very spacious

  • 5 of 5

Bear Hollow was prefect for a multi family weekend away. Plenty of room, well appointed house, beautiful views of lake. Boat slips made it easy to rent a boat and utilized it for the whole day. Loved having the fire pit for camp fires at night, nice to have plenty of chairs as well. House and hot tub was clean and well maintained. We would definitely rent again.

Former best kept secret

  • 5 of 5

This was the 4th or 5th time we have stayed in Bear Hollow and my husband and I could not be happier. This is our dream lake/mountain home. We have stayed in other accommodations in the area but these sister homes are the very best you can find. So many desirable amenities, very close to local hot spots (including the adorable coffee shop, Arrowhead market and the Honi Honi), and the backyard with dock and amazing views have us sold as very happy return customers year after year. Also, the fact that these houses are dog friendly makes them an A+ in my book. Thank you for allowing us to make wonderful family memories in your gorgeous log homes!

Relaxing vacation on the lake

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Bear Hollow and we enjoyed this trip better than the first. The weather was perfect. The accommodations were excellent for our family and friend group of 9(actually 10 with the dog). The property was clean and well-maintained. I have already recommended this property to a friend who just happened to mention to me that he was looking for a 5 bedroom property on the lake for his family vacation. I gave him one of your cards, and I am sure he will be in touch! The younger adults enjoyed the white-water rafting at WISP, and we all enjoyed renting a pontoon boat for a day on the water. The brick-oven pizza at Mountain State Brewing Company, and the food and drinks at Boardwalk and Honi-Honi were excellent.

The Van Rye Family

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Bear Hollow and was pleasantly surprised by the location and house! Not only was it spotless, but also well equipped from lines to dinnerware!

We had noticed by day 2 that the light in the refrigerator was out and one over the sink! We called the repair service and within a couple of hours he arrived! Enjoyed having a conversation about the area, since it was our first visit and he was very knowledgeable!

We loved our family vacation there and would recommend it in the future!

Deep Creek's best lodging

  • 5 of 5

We went for a family reunion. This is the second year we have stayed at Raccoon Lagoon and Bear Hollow. Love these two houses. Great location. The kids and adults had great fun in the water and the beautiful yard. The houses have all the comforts of home. The owners respond promptly and are very friendly and helpful. Can't say enough good things about these properties. Have already rented again for next year.
