Charming, Eco-Friendly Cabin Retreat, Heart of Deep Creek

Bedrooms 3
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9

Our cabin is a charming retreat in a native woodland setting. It's in the heart of Deep Creek Lake, offering recreational activities year round. Wisp Ski Resort is 3 miles and the lake is a short stroll away. Stay at our cozy hideaway under the stars. In winter you'll find a snow filled wonderland as you relax by the crackling fire. Spring, summer or fall take a swim, explore nature or go boating. Go to the nearby cafe or stay and have cappuccino on the deck. Take a day trip to Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater. Our cabin is an accommodating, truly hip, cozy getaway for families and singles. It's the place for a wonderful healthy break at an affordable price.

We will continue to make changes to the property in keeping with a greener world. We would appreciate your insights in creating a 'greener' cabin as well. Here's to a healthy body, mind, planet and lifestyle. We look forward to sharing our cabin retreat with you.

Eco Friendly Living: It's our goal to have the cabin completely renewable(green)and self sufficient, as soon as technology and financing allows(keep renting and we will get there sooner!) Currently we have used eco-paints that do not emit harmful gases. We've furnished the cabin using Craig's list which means most everything is recycled at least one generation. We use renewable products and recycle whenever possible. Water is renewably drawn from our well and heat is enhanced by the fireplace.

Loved it! It was just the right size for my large family.

  • 4 of 5

I loved how well stocked the cabin is. If you need it they have it. It's also centrally located so doing activities up and down the lake was easy.

Relaxing and well kept

  • 4 of 5

My family rented the cabin because we were attending a wedding in the area and were very happy with our choice. It felt a lot more like home than staying at a hotel. It was cozy but we all had plenty of room to get ready without getting in each other's way. It was walking distance to the lake and convenient to anything that we needed. We loved it!

Wonderful and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 enjoyed the cozy cabin in the woods. It was wonderful to unwind. The owners were great to work with and all their recommendations were quite helpful. We enjoyed so many activities in the area and found the cabin to be centrally located to everything. Another plus, was a very well stocked kitchen. We hope to come again, maybe in the winter!

Me and my friends had such a wonderful time at this cabin. We made great memories with fire pits, playing board games and cook out. We were thankful about spending time at this cabin. Highly recommended for a weekend trip!

Charming and rustic return to simpler life

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I eloped on Wednesday, we booked this place last minute and we were so happy we did! It was great. Private, romantic, and charming. We enjoyed just snuggling up and watching VHS movies. And we relaxed in the hot tub as well. It was so great, thank you! A honeymoon we won't forget <3

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you had a wonderful honeymoon at our cabin! Please let us know if you ever decide to return for an anniversary visit. It's thrilling for us to share this special place with people who love it. And, if you run out of VHS or DVD movies, there is always the Smart TV in the king bedroom!

Such a perfect, cozy cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the weekend for a bachelorette party. There were 7 of us girls and the space in the cabin was just right. It's so cute, charming and cozy! The deck with the lights and hot tub was definitely our favorite part/setting. We would 100% come back for another girls trip in the future. Also, the owners of the cabin are so great and patient answering all of the emails/calls we had. The location was also in an ideal spot. Close enough to the lake, the coffee shop and of course the Honi Honi Bar. It was a perfect weekend at this cabin!! Wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review! I'm delighted that you had a great time. I discovered Deep Creek 27 years ago when I came with a group of friends for a bachelorette party - and now you have done the same! You were able to celebrate AND leave the cabin in perfect shape. Very impressive.

The landscape is a native hemlock and pine forest with moss strewn boulders and ferns. At nearby Swallow Falls, a 12 minute drive, you can see spectacular waterfalls and Maryland's last stand of old growth hemlock forest with 300 year old trees.

Other Activities: Kayaking, snowboarding, rock climbing, miniature golf
