Why Doris chose Deep Creek Lake

We built this cabin for our family. We've been transferred out of state so we rent it, but still try to visit a few times a year. We are not in a rental pool and we do not own any other homes around the lake. We have a great cleaning & maintenance crew that keeps the place very clean and in good shape for our guests.

What makes this cabin unique

Dedicated dock slip, so you will not have to pull your boat in and out daily. Just drop it off at our dock and leave it till you are ready to go. Quiet street, more golf carts than cars!

Clean and well stocked

  • 3 of 5

The cabin is very tidy and well stocked. Everything is super clean. There were only 2 of us and we had plenty of towels. The hot tub was also clean and ready to go when we got there. The one big downfall was that the beds and sofa were not comfortable. We tried both beds and neither was comfortable. One had some sort of a mattress pad that made a lot of noise.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you felt the beds were uncomfortable, no one has ever told us that before. The one in the front room is only 2 years old and I've had others ask me where they could buy one like it. ..but I agree with the mattress pad, I actually just went online to Kohls to get a new one. It is a waterproof pad that was supposed to be good, but I really don't like it either. Thank you for coming.

Perfect Cabin for a Fall Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

6 friends stayed at the cabin for a weekend trip. The house was perfect for what we needed. Just the right amount of beds and the kitchen and common area were plenty big enough as well. The hot tub out back was a great feature, especially during the chilly fall nights. The owner Doris was very responsive to questions over email. We had a great time at Sullivan's Retreat!

2nd Trip even better than the 1st!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to see the seasons change and needed a getaway from work. We stayed here early summer and loved it so much we decided to stay again. So clean and comfortable, this is our new go to cabin. Love it! oh and the view from their dock is one of the best on the lake to take in the fall colors. Brought chairs down and a picnic lunch. It was amazing!

Excellent Deep Creek Lake Getaway!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cabin! Excellent communication to/from the property owner. Cabin was very clean, well stocked with kitchen accessories, and convenient to many of the lake attractions. Would absolutely stay here again.

Clean Cabin on Quiet Street

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed this cabin for our anniversary getaway. The owner was easy to reach and attentive to any questions or needs. The cabin is on a shaded lot one street away from the lake and has a full kitchen with comfortable beds. We found it funny that the acorns falling from the trees near the cabin set the car alarm off twice while we were there. Water access is about a half mile away and offers a decent view of the lake from the dock. We found out that the cabin front door locks automatically when we were sitting in the rocking chair out front, so have the combination with you (we hadn't used a computerized lock before). The best place we found to eat was Uno's on the water—our appetizers and entrees were great! And if you climb the fiberglass/cement elephant in the nice area behind the restaurant, be prepared to have your wife laugh at you — I made it up on it though. There is also a nice 24/7 market right near the restaurant that was stocked with just about everything you could want. We wanted to rent a canoe or row boat, but only kayaks, paddle boards or motor boats were offered at the places on the lake - we didn't try in the park. We found a fun place called the Shawnee Trading Post while we were driving around. If you enjoy looking at an eclectic collection of sculptures and statues it is really a vast assortment and most are for sale. We even paid the $3 each to tour his private collection - I think it was worth it - the wooden carvings that were crammed into the inside portion were quite amazing. We had a peaceful time at Deep Creek and the cabin served as a nice central point to our visit. If you are looking for a quiet respite in the Deep Creek area this is the place.

Wonderful cabin for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cabin for our weekend getaway. I must say, my communication with Miss Doris was phenomenal! Any questions/concerns/problems were responded to almost immediately. Wether it be though email or phone, she was always getting back to me at

lightning speed.

Pluses on the cabin: very clean, especislly the hot tub, had things to keep us entertained when it was rainy, dock was super close and we were able to leave our kayaks tied up, quiet, fire pit area was great.

Very pleased with my stay and will visit again!

A short walk to our dock slip reserved for you boat or a couple jet skiis, the slip is also a great place to just jump in and take a swim or bring your chair and relax in the sun.
