You may also want to enjoy an evening camp fire by the lake as you listen to the night sounds by starlight.

Our home is within a short distance of the whitewater rafting course at Adventure Sports Center International, the new Hale Irwin Lodestone Golf Course and Wisp Ski Resort. The kids will enjoy playing miniature golf, the video arcade, riding the go carts or the bumper cars at Smiley's Fun Zone. The area has some wonderful gift shops for you to explore in case of a rainy day.

Meals are not a problem with the fully equipped kitchen and Shop N Save grocery store just down the mountain. Not into cooking? There are plenty of wonderful restaurants to choose from. You are just minutes away from a great meal by car or by boat.

Whatever you decide to do at Deep Creek Lake we are positive you will be happy staying in our 'Glory Days' home.

Nov. 2017 The perfect vacation house

  • 5 of 5

Everything was amazing and family/friends loved your home. I've been going to Deep Creek since I was a kid and have stayed in at least 12 different vacation rentals and this is the only house I would rent again. Exceed all our expectations. Endless amenities, very clean, and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need to cook a big family dinner... I could go on and on about how much I love this house. The owners are kind and very accommodating. Thank You!!!

Beautiful house in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The house is extremely cozy and in a perfect condition. The rooms are nice and comfortable. The location is perfect: it has a lake- and a hill-view. In short, the hosts make it feel, literally, like home. And of course, the hosts are very cooperative and kind.

Great house, great location, great owners!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Deep Creek for 7 summers, and this was our first year staying at this house. We were very pleased from the moment we arrived. The house is beautifully appointed with high quality furnishings and decorations. It does not feel like a rental house at all - feels well very well cared for. Everything was very clean. The views from the Master bedroom were outstanding. There was an extensive DVD (and VHS) collection, the wifi was excellent. The dock was very nice, as was the lakefront area. It's a fair amount of steps to get down to the lake, but there is also a side path that can be used if you don't want to take the stairs. The location is outstanding, being on a private road, yet close to the Wisp and the various things in McHenry, and also a short boat ride from Uno's, Lakeside Creamery, etc. The owners were great to deal with and are obviously very nice people. We will be back!

The perfect winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5

This might be a long review but I wanted to give this house and it's owners their due.

First things first. Reserving this house was so simple and easy. Using VRBO can be tricky at times due to the large number of agents who mask their listings as owners but this was not the case. Claudia and Mark were quick to respond and answered all of our questions completely. They made us feel at home before we even left home.

We arrived on Saturday evening to a beautiful home. As soon as we walked in the door we felt so relaxed and at ease. The house is perfectly furnished from top to bottom. The little touches around the house showed us the owners really care about their guests. We thought we would go out to dinner the first night but we felt so comfortable there after a long day of skiing we just put on our slippers and cooked up a nice spaghetti dinner (The grocery store is 5 minutes away)and then just relaxed looking forward to the morning when we could see the view from the house.

WOW is all I have to say is wow, what a view to wake up to. After breakfast we were off to go skiing. We were at Wisp in 5 minutes. The weather was perfect all weekend and the crowds were not as bad as people say they can be.

Relaxing in this home is easy. The movie collection is by far the most extensive I have seen in any rental home. They had movies for every age group. The furniture is very comfortable and up to date. The furnishings are nice and not typical of rental homes and that made it feel like a home not a rental.

We are already looking to go back over the summer and next winter as well.

We really had a great time.
