About the property

Cabin Sweet Cabin - Deep Creek Lake - Our cabin is for you if you would like to be in a quiet neighborhood off the main road. Fully stocked kitchen, beautiful furnishings and log beds add to the mountain charm. We have lake access so you can bring your own boat or rent a boat during your stay.

Enjoy the neighborhood amenities like the fishing pond, picnic areas, playground and lake swim area or sit outside on the deck and enjoy the fresh mountain air. Great for a family with kids or a romantic getaway. We are not on a busy road so let the kids play outside & enjoy the quiet.

There are 6 State Parks with waterfalls & hiking nearby as well as the WISP Mountain Resort which has year-round activities such as zip lines, mountain roller coaster, segway tours, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding & the white water rafting course. Nature is all around for you to enjoy.

Flexible rental days: Want 2 weekends during your summer vacation? No problem - just reserve your dates early!

New Home with 3 levels of living space: fully stocked kitchen, 2 family rooms & game room with Foosball, ping pong table and large round table for playing games. Plenty of room to relax and have fun. New furnishings throughout!

There are plenty of games and books for the whole family to enjoy when you want to stay home and relax. Or you could take in the mountain air while sitting outside on the large deck. On the cool days and nights you could warm up inside by the fireplace or outside by the fire pit. Firewood included.

In the summer, enjoy the lakefront where you can relax on the community dock, take a dip in the roped off swim area or picnic by the lake. You can also bring your boat or rent a boat. Golf is just a mile away and nearby towns have arcades and mini-golf. Memories for a lifetime....

Fall Activities: In the autumn the fall colors are a site to see and the lake is quieter than in the summer. Come visit the nearby parks for spectacular views, hiking and site seeing too. You might just see some wild turkeys, deer or bears.

If you want to be on a main road this house is not for you. There is no traffic or cars zooming by. We are in a quiet neighborhood where your kids can play outside with no worry. This is a quiet neighborhood!

This property is listed by the home owner so you will NOT be paying any Manager Fees.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. Thank you.

Why Kim Messina chose Sky Valley

We are the original owners of Cabin Sweet Cabin. We have decorated the house and provided amenities that we would want to have if we rented a home for vacation. You will find a fully stocked kitchen, towels & linens delivered for your vacation and firewood for your campfires. We have ping pong, Foosball and plenty of games, books & videos for all ages for quality time during your vacation. There is also plenty of seating inside and outside for 10.

What makes this house unique

Come enjoy nature and the fresh mountain air. The deck out back is large enough to enjoy your morning coffee or a quiet place to catch up on your reading. The log beds and other decorations add to the mountain charm. We hope you come see for yourself the mountain side of Maryland!

Guestbook comments from the owner

(Note from our Welcome Book visitor page) We had a wonderful week! The cabin provided all the amenities of home. Traveling with three kids under the age of 3, your cabin provided to be the perfect place to stay! The kids couldn't get enough of all the deer in your backyard! and we were able to find so much to do in the surrounding area.

We have been taking this trip for over 12 years now always staying at a different location. This is the first time we are planning a repeat visit to the same place.

Thank you for all you did to make our vacation so memorable!

What a wonderful, relaxing vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time and would recommend this vacation home. It was so peaceful and wonderful being in a brand new house!! I did not want to go home.

I have used HOMEAWAY before and the rentals are always the BEST!

The kitchen even had everything we needed. See our reservation for this summer. We cannot wait!

House is great

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at this house. Location is good ... plenty of hiking and water activities within 15-20 min drive. House is spacious, especially the basement with the game room area. Our kids played downstairs for hours. Just one minor "ailment," the hot water heater seemed a bit undersized for the size of the home, but we easily adjusted by spacing out our shower times. Not a big deal for most. Kitchen was well-stocked, bedrooms were spacious, and we especially enjoyed the back deck and fire pit. Owner was very nice and responsive. The neighborhood swim docks and pavilion were also a short walk and we used them several times.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry our guest felt the water heater was not adequate. If there is ever a problem or question with anything in the house you can contact my cell at any time and I will do whatever I can to rectify the situation. I contacted 2 other guests and neither experienced any shortage of hot water, but I will have a plumber check the system just to be sure.

Lovely cabin in family friendly setting

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at Cabin Sweet Cabin. We had a lovely stay. The location is nice for families, with its own little beach, fishing pond and playground. We were unlucky with the weather, but we stayed busy teaching the older kids table tennis. Their are plenty of movies to choose from, too. The Cabin has all the modern amenities and is very clean. I loved the treats for the kids. So thoughtful! Thanks for helping us create our first memories of Deep Creek Lake.

The cabin was great!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the cabin. Same as the previous year, the cabin is absolutely spotless and like new! It’s stocked with just about everything that you need – cooking supplies plus more than just the basic utensils filled the drawers…even electric outlet protectors to keep the little ones safe.

As before, the owner was great…even beyond our stay. I left my briefcase with my work laptop at the cabin and didn’t discover it until I left home to go to work that Monday morning. Since my entire workday is dependent on my laptop, I texted Kim around 6:20 a.m. and crossed my fingers. I got a reply in minutes, and was talking to Kim by 6:30! She confirmed and arranged that I could go back and get the laptop, and by later that morning, I was back at work, in business. Kim has always been very efficient and great to deal with.

We spend the weekend with our two grown children and their spouses, along with our three grandchildren. We had plenty of living and sleeping space, and we all really enjoy sitting around the campfire in the back yard.

We highly recommend Cabin Sweet Cabin – you won’t go wrong!
