About the property

5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, sleeps 14 to 18

Comfortably nestled in a hillside only one street from the lake, Big Rock Candy Mountain Lodge is a 5 bedroom, 4 full bath lodge where modern meets traditional. Its central yet secluded location is less than 3 miles from Wisp ski resort, the ASCI adventure park, several state parks, the movie theater, restaurants and many other local amenities. The area truly offers four seasons of fun including skiing, golfing, hiking, kayaking, and fishing – plus zip-lines and the Alpine mountain roller coaster!

Relax in the great room with a movie from our DVD library on the 55” HDTV home theater system with surround sound, exercise with a game on the Wii, play pool or air-hockey in the basement, or check your E-mail on the high-speed wireless network.

Enjoy all the modern amenities this vacation home has to offer - or take a 5 minute walk to dip your toes in the lake, relax on the partially-covered wraparound deck with a book and enjoy the filtered lake views, or share your evenings around the fire-pit with s’mores.

Infant and toddler-friendly: Since we have 4 young children, the home has many features that will be appreciated by families with small children! First of all, leave your pack and play at home - there is one in the bunkroom! For eating, we have a high chair and several booster seats available. We also have a step stool in the main level bathroom (to reach the sink & toilet!), outlet covers and safety gates at both sets of stairs. And for rainy days, there are some children's DVDs, games, puzzles & books plus cards, as well as a Wii gaming console (with 3 games) and both an air-hockey AND pool table in newly finished basement. And for hikes with a little one, we also have a toddler hiking backpack!

About Cheryl Celebi

We have 4 girls 8 and under (including a set of TWINS!) and look forward to enjoying time in the summer on the lake and skiing this winter!!

Cheryl Celebi purchased this house in 2010

Why Cheryl Celebi chose Deep Creek Lake

Kaan is in the construction industry and recognizes quality workmanship. The house is beautifully built, as you will see. The giant picture windows afford a truly beautiful view - with peek-a-boo lake views in the winter (when the trees drop their leaves) and beautiful greenery in the summer. And the circular staircase is just simply FUN!

What makes this house unique

circular staircase, giant windows, very well-stocked kitchen, air hockey table, pool table, bunk room in the basement that sleeps 6!

Child-friendly luxurious lodge one block from the lake
average rating of 4.8125 based on 64 reviews

The Lodge was perfect for our 3 family ski weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The Lodge had just the right amount of space for 6 adults and 7 kids (ages 8 to 14). It was great to know the linens and towels were supplied, giving us one less thing to worry about. The 50 degree heat setting made for a super chilly first few evening hours when we arrived (in 20 degree weather), but once it warmed up, the house was really cosy. The house was spotless. The kitchen had everything we needed...baking dishes, cookie sheets, collanders, cutting boards, great knives, can and bottle openers, plenty of dishes and silverware. There were more TV/cable viewing options than we could ever hope for. I'd say the only things we'd give as constructive criticisms are that the open master shower with a sort of locker room shower head was hard to warm up in. And we were really bummed to throw away a huge bag of recycling we had collected over 3 days. It would be great to know where to take it or have that pickup service. Overall, we had a fantastic stay and would love to go back!!!

Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Great House for Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to the Celebis for their hospitality. Big Rock Candy Mountain Lodge was a perfect choice for a girls weekend getaway. The house was clean, spacious, well equipped with supplies and all the amenities we needed. It was in a great location - close to Wisp and plenty of restaurants options (although we opted to stay in and cook dinner). This will be my go to house - will definitely come back for another winter getaway and must make a trip back in the summer.

Amazing house and accommodating hosts!

  • 5 of 5

I was a first-time HomeAway user setting up a trip for a group of guys, and I think we all had a better experience than we could have hoped for. The owners were very great - they sent me emails with everything I needed to know about the area, and were very helpful and responsive when I had some last-minute questions.

The home is well-kept, spacious, and much more beautiful inside than the pictures can convey. There was ample parking, sleeping room, living space, bathrooms, and other amenities for 10 adults travelling separately. All appliances worked well, the deck is huge, and there was even space outside to throw a football! I think we made use of everything, from the air hockey table to the fire pit. The wood stove is an underrated touch to the great room, as well - we felt warm and at home despite some challenging weather.

We absolutely loved our vacation, and could not be more grateful to the hosts for an excellent first experience with HomeAway. I recommend this rental with as much confidence as I would a favorite hotel or restaurant - book away and enjoy your stay!

We had a great time at your place in Deep Creek. I did have to adjust the shower head in the 2nd floor bathroom- it is mounted extremely high for shorter people like myself and wasn't centered in the middle of the shower stall.

The place was very clean and I hope we left it for you like that as well.

I did notice a couple of light bulbs were burned out (the floor lamp by the window in the great room). I would have changed it but did not know where you kept the bulbs.

It might help to have some concise instructions in each room where there is a TV so that your guests don't have to bother you and your husband.

Overall, we did enjoy our stay at your place.

Thanks again for your hospitality.

Cindy Sears

P.S. your neighbor tight next door is nice. He has two dogs, one is a German Shepherd. We have two shepherds so I did chat with him.
