About the area

Deep Creek Lake is a great place to come and relax. But if you want activity, there is plenty to do. There is boating and personal watercrafting in the summer and skiing in the winter. There are tours and white water rafting, ATV rides through the woods, golf and mini golf, go carts, bumper boats, arcades, horseback riding, and much more. Try a new activity like dogcarting or dogsledding when you're here! At least 8 movies are playing at the Garrett 8 Cinemas at any given time. State parks such as Swallow Falls and Savage River are in the area. At a state park or on a private trail you breathe of fresh mountain air as you see nature up-close and personal. Our home is central to all of these activities.

“Great for family fun!”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2016

A great family vacation home. The flat yard and "safe" fire pit was a great hit for the kids (toddlers). Easy to keep clean with wood floors, and thankful for the baby gates and extra mattresses to throw down for the kids. Each room with TV's and dvd players allowed for quiet time for each family. The kitchen was stocked with supplies, and enough games/toys for all to enjoy. We saw lots of deer. The boat slip was a great amenity too. Recommend keeping the blinds closed during the day, as the heat rises upstairs. The linen package was well worth the extra $. Would recommend the Honi Honi for kid friendly restaurant, Brenda's Pizza was great (huge pies), and we did Swallow Falls for an adventure. Recommend the weekly pass to the state park for playground and beach fun. Such a great, relaxing time! Even enjoyed the hot tub during the kids' nap time!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

"Our family has been coming to Deep Creek for our family ski weekend for 9 years and we were all in agreement this weekend that this was the best home we have ever rented. It is really spacious which allows everyone their own space. The kitchen/living/dining area is laid out perfectly with seating for everyone. The home is really clean and is equipped with every appliance, utensil, and bedding - there was nothing we needed - this house had it all! We were there for skiing which was a short drive (7 miles) to Wisp Resort. We will be back to Mountain Lodge and will continue to make memories in Deep Creek!" - Michelle C., 02/23/2016

"Thanks to the Marins for a lovely holiday weekend stay. We had 11 people (+ one small dog!) in the house, and there was not only room for everyone, there was even room to have some alone time if needed! Our group cooked a Thanksgiving meal in the well stocked kitchen, thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub and the fire pit, as well as the stock of board games. The house was very clean and ordering linens made our stay even easier. Would definitely recommend this house for a great, relaxing getaway." - Amy V., 11/29/2015

"Property was beautiful. Everything was clean and had instructions so there was no confusion. Had a wonderful weekend and Ed was nice enough to mail back forgotten items. Would highly recommend!" - Marie P., 10/22/2015

"We had 4 adults and 5 children for our stay. Every person had plenty of room and had their own space. The inside of the house was immaculate. The pool table and air hockey table was played the entire weekend. The outside had enough room for us to throw baseball and cornhole. We also went down to the private boat slip and went fishing. The kids used the hotub in the evening and had a blast. The renters were so kind and responded quickly to any questions we had. We have been getting our family together for the past 7 years for a weekend and this place by far was the best." - Anonymous, 10/03/2015

"We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful house, a good time was had by all. We wanted something by the lake, and even though the house was not right on the lake, the boat slip was just around the corner and the state park with a beach was close by. Recommendation; if you plan to use the state parks, purchase a week pass. The fee is $40 for the week for a car load and can be used at all the state parks, which there are plenty of in the area. The fire pit was a big hit in the evenings and the large lawn out front was used for our lawn game competitions. There was an abundance of wildlife for our enjoyment. A note was left about a bear on the peninsula and glad we saw it. We had the thrill of watching a bear and her 3 cubs walk up the street straight for the garbage holder. Also loved watching the Deer and their babies come out every dusk for their evening feeding. The owners were very accommodating and very happy to answer any questions we had. I would highly recommend this house for your vacation stay." - Lorie C., 07/28/2015

"Mountain Lodge is an amazing home, we have rented several homes in the area, none of them compared to this house. Mountain Lodge has every amenity you might wish for, lots of space, very comfortable beds, nice game room, hot tub, fully stocked kitchen and can't forget the fire pit what a good addition. Property was very clean and well maintained, Our family will definitely rent this home again. I would recommend it to all my friends!" - Anonymous, 06/15/2015

"We had a wonderful girls weekend at the house! Everything was clean and well-maintained, and looked just like the photos (if not even better!). Ed was great to work with, and we loved that the house came with easy and helpful instructions (the labeled light switches are super helpful). We had a group of 10 ladies, and the house was plenty big. We didn't even get a chance to use many of the fun games on the lower level. I would absolutely recommend this spot, and hope to come back in the future!" - Diana M., 05/18/2015

"Everything we expected. Great space for groups looking to for a quiet getaway. Walking distance to lake, 10 minutes to wisp, pool and air hockey are always a place, and can't forget the fire pit. I would recommend to friends!" - Drew D., 03/11/2015

"What a beautiful home! The house was amazing -- lots of space, comfortable beds, great pool table and ice hockey table, nice hot tub, a fully stocked kitchen....I could go on and on. The owners were very easy to work with. They provided all the information we needed to make booking and staying easy. We went over President's Day weekend with a group of old college friends. The weather was unusually cold, so we ended up just staying inside rather than trying to ski in -10 degree weather, which turned out just fine. I couldn't think of a better place to be snowed in. The property was clean and well maintained (oh, and the driveway was plowed every single day, so that we could get out if needed). We love Deep Creek in the winter, and this location was perfect for getting to Wisp (maybe 15 minutes away). In the summer, I am sure this place is perfect too. There is lake access that is just a few minutes away walking. Overall, had a great time. Would highly recommend this property rental to others." - Rose C., 02/17/2015

"Mountain Lodge is a great place to go and relax! Whether you go in the summer or winter, you will find this house has every amenity you might wish for. We have been coming here for years and years and enjoy it every time! The 5 bedrooms offer sleeping for a large group. The dining room table easily seats 10 people and the kitchen is fully stocked with whatever cookware, bakeware or appliances that you might need. There are two levels of sitting areas where you can watch TV, sit by the fire, play pool or play air hockey. Or you can relax in the hot tub steps from the back door. And new this year is an added fire pit located right outside of the deck. Deep Creek Lake is within walking distance if you want to go boating, fishing or jet skiing in the summer. And Wisp is minutes away for all the winter activities you desire. This is the home you should rent if you want a beautiful, clean, relaxing home away from home. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!!" - Marion L., 01/27/2015

"This is our 5th time staying in this wonderful home. It's a great house for a large family and friends. Between the hot tub, pool table, multiple tvs, games and now the new outdoor fire pit, there is plenty to keep everyone busy. If you're lucky, on a clear night, the sunset is beautiful. The house is always clean and ready for our arrival. Thanks for another great vacation." - amy g., 01/22/2015

"This is at the top of our short list of places where we stay in Deep Creek. Quiet spot near the end of the road backed up to the trees. Close to the state park and 5 minutes from Wisp. The great room is nicely decorated but not fussy. The basement game room gives kids their own hangout--keeps the peace. I always escape to the reading nook upstairs & the hot tub out back. Everything works (electronics, appliances, wi-fi, etc.) and the beds are comfy. The owner just added a fire pit and benches outside. Won't need it til warm weather, but there is water access a little ways down the road." - Ann D., 01/09/2015

"The house is beautiful and very spacious. It's perfect for families because it has a pool table and an air hockey table (which I love to play!). It also has 3 fire places!! The house and property were very clean and the home owners leave all their information in case you have any questions. The property is close enough to stores/restaurants in case you want to go out and grab some food but also far enough from other homes that it is very quiet. I recommend this property to anyone interested in some peace and quiet while still being close to all the excitement." - Yesenia C., 11/17/2014

"This stocked Deep Creek house has it all. From lake to mountain views, boating to snow skiing, and baking a turkey to playing pool. Not only is the house well appointed but it is homey and inviting, unlike many rentals. The owners seem to have thought of everything a renter may need. There are extra rollaways, board games to play and books to read. Gathering in the evening after the day's activity, sitting on the deck watching the sunset and viewing the stars was a highlight. We will definitely be back again!" - PJ T., 10/22/2014

"I sent an e-mail to the address that we were using to set this up, but in case you didn't get that let me say again that we absolutely love your place and found it to be more than we expected in every way. Everyone was comfortable, pampered and amazed at your efforts at accommodation. Annie said that the pots and pans were better that hers! We had plenty of everything, it was clean, inviting and homey. Elegant but not at all pretentious. All in all an absolutely awesome experience. If you ever need an endorsement you can simply ask. Thanks again for a wonderful memory." - jeff b., 10/16/2014

"We loved this beautiful home. We took our boat and the whole process was so easy. The deep creek state park launch site is less than 2 minutes and the boat slip was so convenient. The house was so roomy, comfortable and nice. Loved that our furry children were allowed to go. Wildlife everywhere. The house was extremely well stocked with pots, pans, even baby gates and little luxuries. Will definitely be back!" - Andrea I., 10/05/2014

"Our experience at the Marin's chalet was one of the best vacations that we have had in years! The overwhelming opinion of our family was that the place exceeded our expectations and we wished we had more time to stay there! It was perfect. We highly recommend this property to anyone who would like to relax but also have plenty of activities to keep them busy at the house if they want to." - monica s., Thurmont, MD, 09/21/2014

"Just wanted to THANK you so much for allowing the Turner Livsey and Smalls family to get together with our kids at the end of the summer and ENJOY your fantastic HOME. It was great from top to bottom with so much to do. We even enjoyed Kick Ball in the front yard, the gas grill was easy to use and the Black Bear came past for a Visit. The deer also visited daily and we felt right with Nature, deep creek has alot too. Thanks so much for accomodating all our needs." - karen t., , 08/21/2014

"The Reynolds family of 13 enjoyed our stay at the Mountain Lodge for a week in July. We had all the space, accommodations and wonderful surroundings anyone could ask for. The Lodge is absolutely beautiful and a perfect fit for multiple family vacations. We too enjoyed seeing the deer every day and was visited by the black bear looking for something to eat. There was lots of local activities for the kids and fun fishing for the adults. We appreciate you sharing your vacation home with us and would love to back again. Don R. Sylvania, OH " - Don R., Sylvania, OH, 07/20/2014

"Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home! It was beautifully furnished and very well equipped. It seemed you thought of everything we could have possibly used to make our stay very enjoyable. There was plenty to do in the area or the perfect setting to just sit back and relax. My son even spotted a bear while out running on one of the trails in the area.

"The Clark family just enjoyed a wonderful week at your beautiful vacation home.This was our second year to stay at your home by the lake! We got to see all the deer everyday in the side yard and the black bear came by again this year to see if we had any good "garbage" to go through! We did alot of swimming, fishing, and zip lining.The kids also enjoyed the hot tub and air hockey table. We hope to come back again one day soon.Thank you so much!" - Uleta C., Warriors Mark, PA, 06/13/2014

"Thank you for renting your beautiful home! We loved it. So many reasons I can't write them all but , the porches were awesome, the hot tub was so relaxing, 3 queen rooms were perfect for groups of couples, and its so close to the state beach park. We also went to wisp to ride the coaster and my husband went mountain biking. We enjoyed local restaurants and also cooked out many times. Deer came up so close to the house every evening it was awesome. We could walk to the lake or ride a bike, the neighborhood was very quiet with friendly people. I was happy not to run into any bears, lol. We also loved the game selection, pool table and air hockey. We were never without something fun to do. I can see how much time and thought you have put into your home. I look forward to going back next year, hopefully for longer. I can't think of anything that needs improvement. Great house and very affordable." - Amy M., , 06/01/2014

"We loved our stay at the Mountain Lodge!! It was a beautiful home with every amenity we could want. We brought our four kids aged 8 years old to 11 months old and had plenty of room. Although it was considered the "off season", we were able to find plenty of things to do to keep everyone happy. The owners were unbelievably responsive and accommodating. When we arrived it was 75 degrees and before we left it was 15 degrees and snowing! We could not figure out how to turn the heat on so we had to make a call to the owners and they were able to turn it on remotely, AWESOME! Huge thumbs up to this property and experience. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation!" - Steve O., Annapolis, MD, 04/16/2014

"We had a wonderful time at the Chalet. There were a lot of activities to do right at the house and it was very spacious for our 11 person clan. It was also very clean and well kept. We would love to stay again!! " - Carrie D., Manassas, VA, 03/23/2014

"We loved the house. It was a wonderful weekend. Thank you so much. " - Paul C., Canfield, Oh, 03/16/2014

"Mountain Lodge was the perfect place for a weekend of friends and fun! The house was clean, big enough for 11 people to sleep comfortably and had everything we needed for cooking, grilling, etc. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. Thanks again!

"Ed & Ruth, The Mountain Lodge was the PERFECT place for a surprise weekend(Feb 2014)! Our friends (and of course us) had a blast! All the comforts of home where there! We got our use out of the downstairs playroom with pool, air hockey, darts, hot tub, and the card table!! My family is now looking into booking it for a weekend get away in the near future!! Thank you so much for allowing us to get away and enjoy the beauty of Deep Creek!!! -Samantha and Friends! " - Samantha S., Mckeesport, pa, 02/23/2014

"I rented the Mountain Lodge the third weekend in November, 2013, for a bonding retreat for twelve women and could not have been happier. Everyone loved the house. It is absolutely gorgeous. It was roomy and had plenty of natural light. The house and furnishings are well maintained, the beds and couches were comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped, and everything we needed was nearby. In fact, we loved the house so much, we plan to go back next year. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Marin for making our bonding retreat a memorable one. " - Sharon C., Baltimore, MD, 11/17/2013

"Hi Ed, We had a great time. You have a very nice and spacious place there - we had a total of three families there and we didn't feel like we were on top of each other. " - Bill M., Brambleton, va, 10/07/2013

"Thanks!!!! This was a very special event and your home made it work really well. My husband's 75th birthday is in October. I asked what he wanted and thought he might like a dinner party. What he really wanted was a weekend with his children and grandchildren. So I found your house and it was perfect. The space near the stairs going to the basement was a great place for the 2 year-old to put puzzles together and to dance around. We played pool, air hockey, scrabble, and put together (not totally) a puzzle. Cooking was a breeze and the bedrooms were great and comfortable. " - Colleen C., Unit 1013,Ba, 09/23/2013

"Ed & Ruth, Thank you for the rental of your home! Our family enjoyed the stay and the view VERY much. We saw deer daily and the family had a wonderful time even though it rained a lot. We would be interested in renting it again at some later date and time. I just wanted to let you know that your house is beautiful and we really enjoyed our stay. Again thank you for helping to make our first but not last trip to Deep Creek Lake a great experience. " - Robin O., Odenton, Ma, 07/21/2013

I see your calendar does not go that far ahead yet, could you tell me when I should check back to reserve this week.We would love for this to be our yearly family vacation home. Thank you so much...

"We had a wonderful time at the house. We were there with a high school team for their retreat. It was a great place for them to do group activities. It was a perfect setting. " - Kathy P., Morgantown, WV, 06/06/2013

"Thanks so much, this was our 3rd year using your home and as it has been in the past a wonderful experience. I will be contacting you in the near future for our next getaway." - malonia h., , 06/02/2013

"This was an amazing vacation property! I managed to keep it a secret on the trip out, and everyone's jaws dropped when they saw how nice it was. Tons of room, and the amenities were amazing! The weather was a bit cold, but there was so much to do no one even noticed. Lots to keep you occupied in the surrounding area. If you're staying here, I would highly recommend the Mountain State Brewing Company for dinner or lunch. The food was delicious, and had tons of vegetarian options available. Beautiful area, insanely impressive vacation property, and the owners were super friendly and helpful! I honestly cant think of a single negative thing to say, this place was perfect! Thank you so much for the amazing weekend! " - Matt F., Columbus, oh, 05/13/2013

"We had a wonderful week long vacation at the chalet. Everything was perfect at the house, with 9 people along we had tons of room. Our group ranged from a four year old, to a 75 year old and the house worked for everyone!! The location is perfect and seems far away from everything, but really is only a short drive into town where there are tons of things to do and great places to eat. Would highly recommend both Deep Creeek Lake and the chalet for a family vacation, even the dog had a great time!" - valerie j., York, PA, 05/05/2013

"WE HAD A GREAT TIME, THE HOUSE WAS GREAT AND WE SURE WILL BE BACK SOON." - Kawal D., 14891 Michele drive, Gl, 04/07/2013

"What a lovely home. It suited our purposes perfectly and was very clean, well maintained and comfortable. I am hoping to visit Deep Creek again and would rent this property without a doubt. Thanks so much. " - Shannon G., Baltimore, MD, 04/02/2013

"We had a wonderful time staying here, the house has it all. While we were in the area to ski at Wisp, this house is conveniently located only 10 minutes away and it was a nice place to retreat to after skiing all day. Especially the most comfortable couch and flat screen tv in the living area, and the outdoor jacuzzi in the evening. The house is huge, I can see how it would easily sleep 12 people with comfortable seating throughout the house. While we didn't use 90% of the house, it is really equipped with everything you would need. We would definitely consider staying here again on our next trip to deep creek. The owner is terrific to work with and is extremely responsive. " - Michelle G., Washington, DC, 03/17/2013

"We very much enjoyed the house - It was even larger and more well equipped than I was expecting from the pictures. We felt very at home and will definitely stay here again when we come back to Deep Creek in the future. I would say it is one of the better rental homes I've ever stayed in." - Paige C., Baltimore, MD, 02/18/2013

"We just recently had a "guys" weekend at the Marin's home on Deep Creek Lake. It was truly more then we expected. The pictures don't do the home justice. It had more then we even needed and was perfectly set up to accomadate a large group. The house is well maintained and set in a beautiful location. 13 deer in the backyard at once! can't beat that :). My friends were very impressed and are already planning another visit to Deep Creek Lake. Thank you for everything!" - Andres S., , 11/11/2012

"This is my 3rd stay @ this beautiful house; I do a scrapbook Retreat for 11 women + myself and EVERYONE LOVES IT!!! The house is always very clean, kitchen well stocked and the owners are very accommodating ~ the location, while not right on the lake allows for peace and relaxation everywhere you look....a great place to JUST GET AWAY FROM IT ALL!!! The spacious rooms allow for us to work on the lower level and relax in living room and loft area.... IT JUST DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER.....Thanks Ed and Ruth for such a wonderful home to come to!! " - Kathy S., , 10/29/2012

"My family and I had a wonderful time at the Mountain Lodge home. There were ten adults spending a weekend getaway together and this home and location was perfect. It is a beautiful place to get some R&R plus it was very clean & accommodating. Renting from the Marins has been a pleasure and I would definitely consider another stay. We have rented many vacation homes in the past and this is by far one of the best. Thank you for a great stay  Terry & family, PA 10/28/12 " - Terry S., Gibsonia, PA, 10/14/2012

"The house is roomy and beautiful. So clean and well maintained. The owner was very responsive to questions and concerns during our stay. We loved the croquet in the side yard. So family friendly and a wonderful place to spend a relaxing week. We were able to rent a ski boat close by and enjoy the great weather/water. Thank you all who made this possible. Farley's Northern Virginia" - Pacers, Northern VA, 09/13/2012

"Dear Ed, We loved your home. Very spacious and hope to rent it again . " - Charles B., Apartment 4301,Ca, 08/26/2012

"Had a great time. Your house was perfect and contributed to a fun week. Rest assured we will look you up again on our next trip to Deep Creek. Thanks again. " - Bill S., Pittsburgh, PA, 08/19/2012

"Ed, Well, we all made it back home safe and sound. We had a ball even though the weather left a bit to be desired. Thankfully none of the days were complete wash outs. We hit all the high lights at the resort area, plus a pontoon boat for the lake, Amish carriage ride, horseback riding, etc,etc,etc. Your house was a very good base of operations for our family vacation. We've already started telling our friends in person what a great time we had at Deep Creek. I will certainly recommend your house to my friends not only because of it's spaciousness and location but also for you being such a gracious landlord. You were on top of everything in a responsive and friendly manner. I've rented vacation homes before and had some very negative experiences so I know a good one when I come across one. Thanks to you. May God Bless Bill & Shirley W " - William W., Xenia,Oh, 07/29/2012

"The house is amazingly spacious, we enjoyed our weekly stay relaxing and spending time together. The house was far enough off the normal path we didn't feel like we were at a resort area but it was close enough that we didn't not do any of the resort activities. Thanks for the opportunity to stay at your place!!!" - Darrell R., Street, MD, 07/15/2012

"Ed, Thanks so much for an ideal location and exceptional lodging for our extended family to enjoy our biennial reunion! From Maine to Texas, we were able to relive memories of growing up in Pittsburgh and create new memories. It was nice to be so close to the state park for hiking with horseback riding and golf close by too. The ladies made good use of the hot tub, while the guys enjoyed the pool table. It more than lived up to our dream when we stopped by to visit last September to plan the reunion. We highly recommend your place - so charming! Thanks again. Larry " - Larry L., Dublin, OH, 07/08/2012

"My family and I enjoyed our stay at the Mountain Lodge. The house was large enough for our group of 9 and located close to everything. The large yard was a great place for us to play games. Because we had small children we often drove to the boat slip however there was a nice parking lot with restroom access that made it an easy task. We would absolutely stay again." - Laura D., Boalsburg, PA, 07/01/2012

"Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. We had a wonderful week, looking forward to many more. We will recommend your home to anyone coming to deep creek. Thank you again. Vicki Evans" - Vicki E., Christiana, PA, 06/17/2012

"Ed, This was a great weekend and a wonderful house. We were there to train on the Savageman course as well as do a fair amount of running and swimming. We had a blast doing all of it and the house was a perfect place for us to come back to and rest up. I hope you are able to have a relaxing weekend there-it really is a beautiful home in a great setting. One note: we enjoyed the deer every morning and evening. We also enjoyed the bear that stopped by for a visit one morning as well. He seemed like a young guy who most likely had split from his mother earlier this spring. He did nothing threatening to us or the dogs but as per your note on the 'fridge, we did want to let you know a sighting was as recent as this weekend. Best, Chris " - Chris V., WASHINGTON, DC, 05/28/2012

"Ed, we had a blast. thanks so much. looking forward to another visit later this year. (Diana and Maggie)" - Diana k., bethesda, ma, 05/25/2012

"The house is amazing! Centrally location to everything. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the deer in the mornings and evenings.

"Dear Ed and Ruth, We had a fabulous time at your home! We feel very fortunate to have found such lovely accomodations on short notice (our original vacation plan was to take our family to Hatteras, NC, but as you may have seen, the road got washed out by Irene in 5 places!). After our stay in Mountain Lodge, we felt very lucky to have shifted from beach to lake. Your home was inviting and comfortable; our grandchildren loved cavorting on the lawn with the deer, and we all took advantage of relaxing on your decks and boating on the lake from your convenient slip. It couldn't have been a better getaway...many thanks! Mary Jay and Peter Michel " - Mary J., Alexandria, VA, 09/02/2011
"Thank you very much for the use of your beautiful house this past week. It is a beautiful home, very spacious and loved by all. We enjoyed very much every morning and some evenings seeing the deer right outside in the yard. Hope to be back again next year. Thanks again. Evans from Christiana " - Vicki E., Christiana, PA, 08/14/2011
"We had a wonderful weekend in this home (June 3-5, 2011). Our group ranged in age from 7 to 82 and everyone loved it. The house is comfortable and well equipped. It had plenty of fun extras like the pool table and the hot tub. The children and the dogs loved the grassy yard. The location was great--we were close to everything. We hope to stay again!!" - Jeanne C., Columbia, MD, 06/05/2011
"Thank you so much Mr. Marin. We had an absolutely wonderful time! Your house is amazing. It had everything we could have needed and more! We hope to visit again in the future. Thanks again! Samantha (and family!) " - Samantha O., East Stroudsburg, PA, 04/28/2011
"Hi Ed, We all had a wonderful time at your house. My family as well as the other family loved it. When we were driving down the street, I lost track of counting the houses and I pointed to your house and I like Wow, look at that house. My husband said that's the one we are staying in and my 18 year old daughter was like "Really???". She was so exicted! The air hockey table was a huge hit. That keep our boys busy. It was a very relaxing vacation. Everyone had a great time. Thank you for letting us stay there. I was not disappointed and would love to rent it again. Have a great day. Michelle C " - Michelle C., Catonsville, MD, 04/19/2011
"Our experience at Deep Creek cannot be expressed in words. The house was beautiful and fully equiped with everything we needed. It was very clean as well. We really ejoyed the hot tub as we watched the snow fall, it was amazing. We will most certainly be returning very soon." - Malonia H., Denton, MD, 04/03/2011
"This house is well maintained and beautifully appointed. Mr. and Mrs. Marin were wonderful to work with. My scrapping group is already making plans for next spring and those plans include this beautiful home. " - Thelma V., , 03/28/2011
"Great house! Thanks so much! Everything was great! " - Brooke J., Washington, DC, 03/20/2011
"We just spent 5 days at Mountain Lodge at Deep Creek, Feb.16-20,2011 and would highly recommend it! We live in central Va. and have 3 adult children in Pa.,Md. and Va. It was centrally located for everyone. Two of our kids are married, one is engaged and it provided a great get-together for us all. The house is gorgeous, laid out well, and stocked with all the amenities. Our group loved playing pool and the hot tub. We had never been to western Maryland- what a beautiful area! would love to see it in summer too. Some in our group enjoyed skiing at Wisp also - what fun! Thanks again Ed and Ruth for sharing your beautiful home with us. John and Pam and family " - John C., Lynchburg, Va, 02/20/2011

"We rented the Marins' beautiful Deep Creek house for a long weekend in September. It was delivered just as described, it was clean, and it was well appointed. The owners were also friendly and responsive. We would definitely stay here again." - Sanchi J., Washington, DC, 09/12/2010
"We celebrated my Father's 70th birthday at Mountain Lodge and had a wonderful time. All of our guests were easily accommodated in the very spacious house. The views from the front deck were enjoyed every afternoon as we savored wine and cheese while watching the sun go down and the deer running through the neighborhood. I would recommend this house to anyone. The owners were very personable and great to work with. I can appreciate working with an owner who takes great pride in their property and keeps it in top condition for their renters to enjoy. I would not hesitate to rent this vacation home again the next time we are at Deep Creek Lake." - Guys Get-A-Way, St Mary's County, Maryland, 07/21/2010
"We had an AMAZING time at your vacation home. I have only been to Deep Creek Lake once before and that was about 14 years ago. It sure has changed, but for the better. It is obvious that you truly thought of the comfort and needs of your guests when you decorated and prepared your house. There were so many extra touches such as liquid hand soap in every bathroom, TVs in every bedroom, all "fire" items being gas, and having two master bedrooms. The kitchen was well stocked, and having a pool and air hockey table was great when the weather was not so good. We all said the only thing that could have made the house better was if it were "lake front" but we also felt it was worth the inconvenience (only because we are so slow and disorganized with our big group!) :) and that we would love to make this our regular vacation spot! Thank you again for sharing your home, and caring so much about our enjoyment. You are truly the kind of person we would want to deal with when renting a vacation home. We will also suggest this home to others that we know. Oh, and if you ever find you have a last minute vacancy for a long weekend stay, let us know. If it's a reasonable price, we would love to go back! :) Beth and Dave " - Beth H., Baltimore, MD, 07/18/2010
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your home. Everything was absolutely perfect. From the layout of the house to the hot tub to the full size air hockey table to the fireplaces. We will definitely be back in the future. Thank you! " - Joan G., 1421 Columbia Street, NW, 01/02/2010
"Dear Ed, Our family had a wonderful time at your chalet this past weekend. We had plenty of space and the kitchen enabled us to cook a splendid feast. Thanks so much for the opportunity to get together. I hope we left everything pretty much as we found it. Let us know if anything was amiss. We know we left behind a couple of cookie sheets and a salad spinner, but perhaps they will come in handy for a subsequent renter. Sincerely, Christine Swanson " - Christine S., Columbus, OH, 11/29/2009
"We had a great weekend in your home and would love to do it again same time next year or even sooner, if possible. " - Terry Z., New Windsor, MD, 09/20/2009
