Charming, Eco-Friendly Cabin Retreat, Heart of Deep Creek

Bedrooms 3
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


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, lovely cabin; well furnished

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was for my 45th and our 14th and provided a fully furnished get away that gave a perfect balance of amenity and disconnect that allowed us to recharge and reconnect far away from everyday and close enough to familiar comfort.

Relaxing and Homey Cabin Near Deep Creek

  • 5 of 5

Kudos to Sean and Dean for creating such a comfortable and homey atmosphere. After spending our days frolicking in the snow, taking a horse drawn sleigh ride, or just exploring the area; it was so nice to come back to the cabin and relax in such a warm environment! We really enjoyed staying at your cabin!

Quite, cozy and Beautiful place for a weekend getaway!

  • 4 of 5

My Friends and family spent 2 days in this Cabin and we all loved it! It was close to the wisp resort where we ski for a day, it was surrounded with nature which I love, you can walk to the lake for a few minutes and a few minutes drive to the shops and restaurants.

Perfect mountain experience

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a cozier cabin. Enough space for the teenagers to chill, but small enough we still did everything as a family. We enjoyed the selection board games with our children. The hot tub was an experience in the snow and on a starry night. The customer of snow made everything even more magical! And the owners were wonderful to work with. We love using the inside and outside fires and she helped us secure enough wood prior to our stay. The place was super clean and all the little touches really made it one of the best vacations we have had in a long time! Can’t wait to come back!!

The landscape is a native hemlock and pine forest with moss strewn boulders and ferns. At nearby Swallow Falls, a 12 minute drive, you can see spectacular waterfalls and Maryland's last stand of old growth hemlock forest with 300 year old trees.

Other Activities: Kayaking, snowboarding, rock climbing, miniature golf
