Oakland House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, sleeps 14 to 18

Comfortably nestled in a hillside only one street from the lake, Big Rock Candy Mountain Lodge is a 5 bedroom, 4 full bath lodge where modern meets traditional. Its central yet secluded location is less than 3 miles from Wisp ski resort, the ASCI adventure park, several state parks, the movie theater, restaurants and many other local amenities. The area truly offers four seasons of fun including skiing, golfing, hiking, kayaking, and fishing – plus zip-lines and the Alpine mountain roller coaster!

Relax in the great room with a movie from our DVD library on the 55” HDTV home theater system with surround sound, exercise with a game on the Wii, play pool or air-hockey in the basement, or check your E-mail on the high-speed wireless network.

Enjoy all the modern amenities this vacation home has to offer - or take a 5 minute walk to dip your toes in the lake, relax on the partially-covered wraparound deck with a book and enjoy the filtered lake views, or share your evenings around the fire-pit with s’mores.

Infant and toddler-friendly: Since we have 4 young children, the home has many features that will be appreciated by families with small children! First of all, leave your pack and play at home - there is one in the bunkroom! For eating, we have a high chair and several booster seats available. We also have a step stool in the main level bathroom (to reach the sink & toilet!), outlet covers and safety gates at both sets of stairs. And for rainy days, there are some children's DVDs, games, puzzles & books plus cards, as well as a Wii gaming console (with 3 games) and both an air-hockey AND pool table in newly finished basement. And for hikes with a little one, we also have a toddler hiking backpack!

About Cheryl Celebi

We have 4 girls 8 and under (including a set of TWINS!) and look forward to enjoying time in the summer on the lake and skiing this winter!!

Cheryl Celebi purchased this house in 2010

Why Cheryl Celebi chose Deep Creek Lake

Kaan is in the construction industry and recognizes quality workmanship. The house is beautifully built, as you will see. The giant picture windows afford a truly beautiful view - with peek-a-boo lake views in the winter (when the trees drop their leaves) and beautiful greenery in the summer. And the circular staircase is just simply FUN!

What makes this house unique

circular staircase, giant windows, very well-stocked kitchen, air hockey table, pool table, bunk room in the basement that sleeps 6!

We had a great time at your place in Deep Creek. I did have to adjust the shower head in the 2nd floor bathroom- it is mounted extremely high for shorter people like myself and wasn't centered in the middle of the shower stall.

The place was very clean and I hope we left it for you like that as well.

I did notice a couple of light bulbs were burned out (the floor lamp by the window in the great room). I would have changed it but did not know where you kept the bulbs.

It might help to have some concise instructions in each room where there is a TV so that your guests don't have to bother you and your husband.

Overall, we did enjoy our stay at your place.

Thanks again for your hospitality.

Cindy Sears

P.S. your neighbor tight next door is nice. He has two dogs, one is a German Shepherd. We have two shepherds so I did chat with him.

Family friendly

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Deep Creek at Big Rock Candy Mountain Lodge. The house was very accommodating for our large group. Kitchen was stocked with all cooking supplies needed. Location was great and we really enjoyed nights at the fire pit. Would defiantly consider staying at this location again during our next visit. Thank so much to the Celebi's for sharing your home.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

The house had plenty of room for our extended family. Our sons' families with our grandchildren stayed in the basement rooms and

it gave them privacy and quiet. The house was equipped well, especially the kitchen! Cheryl answered our questions clearly and

quickly. The walk to the lake, however, did not provide any beach or entrance into it. That was disappointing. Overall we had a

great time and would recommend it to others. Any kind of boating activity is available.

Very nice stay. Thanks for sharing your home.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay. The home was very accommodating, well stocked, and clean. The owner was very helpful and pleasant to offer assistance. Our only disappointment was not having a lake view. The area was well located for shopping and restaurants.

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a family getaway that included two small children and three teenagers, and this place was accommodating for all of them. Having one under 2 years old and choosing this house made life much easier. The pack and play, baby gates, high chair, and step stools on site made not having to pack all that great. The teens loved the movie collection, pool table, and air hockey. All and all it was clear we made the right choice.

The location is also great as it seems centralized to all the sights and everything was within a 10 or 15 minute drive. Walk distance to the water was a plus for some evening fishing and swimming as well. I highly recommend checking this place out. Thanks to the owners who addressed all our questions in advance in record time and when we did have a problem (TV was not working correctly) they addressed it within minutes and had it fixed with in hours. That is service!!! Looking forward to coming back.

Beautiful house and area.

  • 5 of 5

We loved Deep Creek and this property is beautiful. One concern was the grill, but I let the owner know and was assured it would be replaced. If you stay there, you will love it. If you notice any problems, let the owner know and they will take care of it. Thank you for a great mini vacation. We hope to stay again next summer or maybe sooner.
