About John and Kathy Joyce
I live near Annapolis, MD with my wife Kathy, where we enjoy sailing, gardening, hiking, and cross country skiing. I am a retired teacher and Maryland State environmental manager.
John and Kathy Joyce purchased this Cabin in 1985
Why John and Kathy Joyce chose North Glade Hills
We bought this property at Deep Creek because of our interest in cross county skiing and teaching people the sport. The many recreational activities on the lake and many State Parks and Forests in the area make it an ideal vacation spot. We had the house built, and now rent it after we have retired. It was designed to accommodate a large group of people comfortably.
What makes this Cabin unique
The house has a beautiful view of the lake from the covered porch which covers the main floor facing the lake. The lake front across the cove from us is kept in natural forest and will never be developed. We have a boat slip at a community dock in front of the house where you can swim and fish. There is a picnic area with tables, gas grill, charcoal grill and fire pit, and a nice lake view.

Nice house, great location
Our extended family had a good time and was comfortable in this house. There is lots of room and the kitchen is pretty well equipped. We enjoyed swimming off the dock, and spent a night around the fire ring.
Very nice place, older home, but location and atmosphere was good.
Nice place, great location. Clearly an old home but well equipped and nice atmosphere. Only real issue was a slight smokey smell in the lower level due to the wood stove and spotty WiFi availability. Overall would book again quickly.
Very good location, nice layout, but it needs some TLC
The good part: we liked the view and location of this house. It was a good size for our group. It allowed my well behaved dog. Great rental price.
The not-so-good part: ants in the kitchen and bedrooms, spiders in the basement. Basement fireplace smelled bad - initially we thought it is a smoker's house. One coffee filter was not cleaned in weeks because it had mold to the edge of the filter cup. Some alarm got on in the basement in the middle of the night and was turned off next day by the maintenance people, after we called.
Sorry, I hate to leave bad reviews, but I think the owners should be aware that the house needs better cleaning and bug control.
Family Celebrates the Holidays in Style
Rock Haul was the perfect place for our family to come together to share an early celebration of Christmas. Six bedrooms and three baths were ideal for our situation. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. No one was concerned about being the last one to shower because there was always plenty of hot water.
We awoke Saturday morning to an ice covered world. No one cared. In fact, we all enjoyed having breakfast while admiring the beauty of the trees and speculating on whether or not the ice fishermen on the lake really knew what they were doing. A wide variety of board games and DVD's, not to mention cable TV gave all of us entertainment options.
We ate all our meals at Rock Haul. A well stocked, large kitchen made meal preparation easy. We also appreciated the fact that all eleven of us could sit comfortably around the dining room table.
If busy work and school schedules can be coordinated in 2017, we all voted to return to Rock Haul. We had a wonderful time!!!
Great Family Vacation Place
Loved this place for our group of two couples, one mother with a baby, and a grandmother with three school age grandchildren. The ground floor apartment with two bedrooms, bath, and family room provided separate sound-proof quarters for the grandmother and school age kids, and the adults and baby were undisturbed on the top floor. There is direct access to the dock, where the kids had a great time playing (with adult supervision). The kitchen is big and well furnished, and the fire pit area was a hit. It's reasonably close to the beach at Deep Creek state park. There aren't other activities for kids close by. For boaters, it would be ideal.
Rock Hall on Deep Creek
The Joyce home at Rock Hall met the needs of my family for a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. The house is well maintained and comfortable. John Joyce is very easy to deal with. We used the MD State Park pass to visit Swallow Falls and Deep Creek Lake State Parks. I launched our boat at Deep Creek Lake SP, which is a short ride from the house. The boat dock at the house is convenient and equipped with a ladder for swimming in the lake. The cove area is great for kayaking as well. We golfed at nearby Fantasy Valley at WISP, checked out the man-made whitewater course at the top of the mountain, attended the Garrett County Fair which happened to be that week. And of course we spent much time exploring the lake. An enjoyable time, enhanced by the comfortable home.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our house. There is so much to do at Deep Creek, and it appears that you took advantage of much of it during your week stay. The cove is nice because it is away from the main part of lake and is quieter for kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding. We hope you enjoyed it enough to come back next year.
