Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9

Our cabin is a charming retreat in a native woodland setting. It's in the heart of Deep Creek Lake, offering recreational activities year round. Wisp Ski Resort is 3 miles and the lake is a short stroll away. Stay at our cozy hideaway under the stars. In winter you'll find a snow filled wonderland as you relax by the crackling fire. Spring, summer or fall take a swim, explore nature or go boating. Go to the nearby cafe or stay and have cappuccino on the deck. Take a day trip to Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater. Our cabin is an accommodating, truly hip, cozy getaway for families and singles. It's the place for a wonderful healthy break at an affordable price.

We will continue to make changes to the property in keeping with a greener world. We would appreciate your insights in creating a 'greener' cabin as well. Here's to a healthy body, mind, planet and lifestyle. We look forward to sharing our cabin retreat with you.

Eco Friendly Living: It's our goal to have the cabin completely renewable(green)and self sufficient, as soon as technology and financing allows(keep renting and we will get there sooner!) Currently we have used eco-paints that do not emit harmful gases. We've furnished the cabin using Craig's list which means most everything is recycled at least one generation. We use renewable products and recycle whenever possible. Water is renewably drawn from our well and heat is enhanced by the fireplace.

Charming Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a weekend getaway at this charming cabin in the woods. Our children loved exploring the woods in the back yard and sitting in the hot tub. It was cozy and tastefully decorated.

cute, clean and conveniently located

the cabin was what it promised--very woodsy, a great Jacuzzi, very convenient to Deep Creek State Park and WISP, and well stocked with supplies (including marshmallows)!

Quaint and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The house was very conveniently located so that we were able to enjoy Swallow Falls State Park and boating during our stay. The house had all we needed for a comfortable stay! The kitchen was well stocked and we were able to easily cook in both nights of our visit. Beds were comfy and plenty of room for our party. We would definitely stay here again when in the area. Thank you for a great visit!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (4 adults +1 child) spent a wonderful week and this home was perfect for our needs. The house is great, fully equipped and clean. It is very close to the lake, restaurants, shops, boat rental places, etc. The deck is very nice and inviting. We would stay here again.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful time hanging out at this cabin. It had just enough room for the seven of us. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the fire pit and the fire pit and hot tub were a great bonus. Sean was extremely helpful and communicative before our trip and proivded a ton of great information about things to do, and everything we needed to know about the house.

I loved how well stocked the cabin is. If you need it they have it. It's also centrally located so doing activities up and down the lake was easy.
