Deep Creek Lake 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 children 7 and under, the home has many features that would 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 3 safety gates at both sets of stairs and the door to the bunkroom. 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 7 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!

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.

We were so excited to come to this home and spend much time at WISP, tubing and enjoying the outdoors. Unfortunately, we arrived the Friday of the biggest snow storm of the century. While we expected that we may have some trouble, we did expect that we would get plowed out and that the driveway would be taken care of. Neither of these things happened. We were essentially stranded at the house all day Saturday. WE actually walked in the blizzard almost 2 miles to see if we could find an open store that sold shovels, as there was NOT a shovel on the property. Unfortunately, we were unable to purchase one. A kind neighbor lent us one for a few hours so we could dig out our car. The next door neighbor was then kind enough to take my husband to the store to purchase one (he had an ATV with a plow). We ended up digging out the entire driveway so we could get out by Sunday. We were unable to get out for our Saturday lift tickets.

In addition to the snow issues, we had trouble with all of the TVs and were never able to get the Wii to work or the TV in the lower level. Considering the fact that we were snowed in for 1 1/2 days, that was incredibly inconvenient. I never did feel that the owner was very responsive. She did however, take $200 off the final bill.

Owner's Response: Hi Nancy, As you indicated, the recent blizzard was one of a kind, lasting for 36 hours nonstop with a state of emergency declared by the Governor, which requires ALL vehicles to have both snow chains and all season tires. Residents were also advised NOT to travel. It was an incredible storm. There were some areas that received up to 44 inches of snow, which naturally caused some issues with plowing and equipment failure. There were many areas that were not plowed for days. Unfortunately, our property was also not completely plowed until a full day after the storm stopped and for that we do apologize. But more snow also means better skiing, when you can get to the slopes safely. Because of the weather forecast, we contacted you a day prior to your arrival (Thursday) to ensure the house was heated in advance and gave the option to check in as early as you needed on Friday in consideration of your safety. In addition to the $200 inconvenience discount, we also offered an extra day of stay knowing the storm was coming, in concern for your safety and comfort. One of the reasons we wanted to own a home in Deep Creek was because of the small, close knit community, so we are very happy that our neighbor JC was able to help. We have always kept a shovel on property, but will make sure to keep extras in the future. We also regret that our phone conversations to guide you and your son through getting the Wii to work did not produce positive results. We wish you had called us back to ask for additional assistance; we were completely unaware that you still had issues. Hopefully we can host you again in the future. - Cheryl & Kaan

Awesome House and Location

  • 5 of 5

Definitely going back soon !!! This place has everything you need to enjoy your stay. Very kid friendly, open floor concept in the kitchen, dining room and living room. Plus game room, private bedrooms and bathrooms. So we spent quality time with extreme comfort. We had a surprise birthday party and had family traveled from Georgia and New York to stay. This place feels like home, close to the food store, the lake, skiing, state park, everything you need. Plus a huge bonus is that the owners are very caring. We can't wait to take our next vacation here. Very Grateful, Eric, Allison and family.

New Year's Eve

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 11 adults stayed at Big Rock Candy Mountain to celebrate New Year's Eve. Our trip was nothing short of excellent. Cheryl was so easy to contact before and during our stay. The bedrooms were more than spacious for our large group and the beds (even the bunk beds) were very comfortable. The big dining room table gave us a great place to all gather for meals that we cooked in the very well stocked kitchen. Every cooking utensil we could have dreamed of was in the kitchen somewhere. The fridge was spacious enough to fit all of our food for 4 days. The mini fridge and wet bar in the basement with the pool table were an added benefit. The only thing we weren't able to do on our trip was ski because the weather was too nice! Instead we found a nearby trail at swallow falls and spent a few hours hiking. The local grocery store was a convenient 5 minutes away for all of the last minute supplies we needed. This is our groups third year renting a house for New Year's and was by far our best experience. We are hoping to visit again!
