The cabin's fire pit, hot tub, and grill made our stay at flight time even more enjoyable. The cabin owner is extremely nice, and very easy to work with. He will make sure your stay at flight time is an enjoyable one. You might even see some deer or the neighbor's dog - 'bear' during your stay. Even though this cabin is located in McHenry, MD it is only a hop and a skip away from the lake, swallow falls, and other outdoor adventures. We will definitely be coming back to flight time on our next trip to Deep Creek MD. Thanks again Troy!
