Great Place to Gather with Family.

August 1, 2014

We had family coming and going during our week stay, and it felt like home as we welcomed them into our "second" home. All the amenities we needed were there. The location was private compared to others nearby. We were centrally located to everything. While the rooms were not as spacious as newer, more expensive homes, they were roomy and very comfortable for our large crew. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean and nicely decorated. The dock was a hike to get to but who cares when you're enjoying a vacation in the mountains. It was very relaxing, we would go back again.

Home Away From Home

December 8, 2013

We were a group of eleven (11) family members celebrating a 50th birthday for a weekend. Our ages ranged from 21-75. From the moment we arrived, we felt like we never left the comforts of our homes, especially with the completely equipped kitchen. With the well designed layout of the house, at no time did any of our family members feel like they were on top of one another. The weekend we were there was unseasonably hot. The wooded lot enabled us to open the windows for a cool breeze throughout the house. We were so comfortable in our surrounding that some items were left behind. Mr. Johns, the owner, was kind enough to locate those items, pack them up and ship them back to us at cost. He goes out of his way for his clients and makes himself very accessible to communicate with. We look forward to renting again in the spring or summer months, when we can take advantage of the water activities in the area. The Meyer Family

Great Place to Stay

December 7, 2013

We spent our Thanksgiving here with family which included small children. There was plenty of space. The house and kitchen were well equipped. There were movies, internet, TV and games for all to use. Working with the owner was very easy and he was very prompt in answering our e-mail questions.

Nice at the price. Not on water, but not a far walk to its private dock. Close to the state park with its beach, launch ramp & discovery center. Good for having the grandkids around, quiet area, off the main road, good size yard for play and well wooded back lot. Great 2 level covered deck with views of deer, hawks, chipmunks walking nearby that thrilled kids; has hot tub on lower level; picnic tables for large outdoor bbq, nice gas grill. Rustic feel with log exterior, knotty pine interior and homey furnishing. The beds are good sleepers. Kitchen well supplied with utensils. It is a nice place, not pretentious or upscale, but definitely comfortable. Only shortcoming is the small washer/dryer unit but we were able to work around that. The owner is great to work with.

Owner's reply:

We are so glad that you found the house so suitable for your group. One of the nice features is that it is so roomy to spread out a group of 12. I am sure the kids enjoyed playing the Wii. Deer frequently graze the lawn, and chipmunks are everywhere. We also enjoy the homey atmosphere of the house.

    John and wife Kathy have owned property and been going to Deep Creek Lake since early the 1980s. We discovered the area cross country skiing and loved it. Although we live in Annapolis, we try to get to Deep Creek about every three weeks to look after the properties and enjoy the mountains and lake....
