Our vacation chalet backs up to the serenity of the forest. Relaxing on the deck, you can enjoy seeing wildlife such as deer, chipmunks, and hear occasional wood peckers. Enjoy a refreshing swim at the lake, or in the heated indoor pool at the lodge. Unwind with a round of golf, a game of tennis, enjoy fishing or kayaking, then explore the nature trails. Skip cooking and enjoy a relaxing meal at the lodge. All this and more, and you have not even left the resort!

Interaction with Guests
We are never more than a phone call, email or text away should you have any questions. You will have the entire home to yourself the entire time of your booking. We will only come by request.
The home is setup with self-check in anytime after 3 pm, offering maximum arrival flexibility.
A guest book, mobile concierge app, and Alexa offer many ways to get answers at one’s continence.
Our home is part of over 2000 acre Alpine Lake Resort with its own private 150 acre spring fed lake and award winning 18-hole golf course. While many come initially because it is only 20 minutes away from the Deep Creek Lake Recreation area, most find that they do not need to leave the resort to find what they are looking for on their Get-Away.
The home is located on just over a third acre, backing up to “green” behind with another cottage on one side only.
The roads are paved and well plowed in the winter to get around.
The resort provides 24-hour security that patrol regularly.
Located right on the West Virginia side of Maryland border (you can see and walk to the border) one is never far from entertainment, shopping, skiing, tubing, boating, rafting, horseback riding, bowling and endless other activities.
In the town of Terra Alta we have one of the best brick oven pizza places in the region, Shorthorns Bar & Grill.
You will need a car to get around these parts. While you can walk or bike to the lake, golf and Lodge; it is quite a hike back up hill to our home.
In the winter a four wheel drive is always preferred. But the roads are so well maintained that I usually drive my Prius all year round.
Other Things to Note
The home has central heating in the winter. The Wood Stove is decor only and not for use. Upstairs bedroom has separate electric baseboard heat with thermostat.
There is no air-conditioning. It is rare in these parts, because at 2710 feet, it is relatively cool even in the summer. With windows open, fan is often more than enough.
This is a Smart Home, meaning that it has security, convenience and comfort features that are automated, like the outside door, there is no key but a keypad. There is a doorbell camera facing the driveway. This is they only camera on the premises. We want to be clear in disclosing that and that your privacy in our home is in compliance with which ever platform you booked your vacation.
The home’s security, fire, smoke and carbon monoxide sensors are monitored by a Central Nationwide Monitoring Service. The alarm system will be disabled during your entire stay. But fire/smoke and carbon-monoxide sensors are monitored for your and our protection, should they trigger, emergency services will be dispatched immediately.
Be respectful and clean up after yourself.
As the good king Hammurabi once said “Good rules make good livin’” (paraphrased), so I’ll spell out some specifics:
Communicate your arrival and departure times, and any changes. We want to be sure we have everything ready for you! Please don’t arrive early without prior notice.
Do not smoke/vape anywhere in the house or on the premises.
Absolutely no Pets.
Children are welcome.
Arriving at the home with more guests than you booked.
Remove make-up before crawling into bed. Make-up stains bedding and towels. We have specially embroidered washcloths marked “Make-up” for your use.
Please don’t eat or drink anything while sitting on the bedding. We want to provide nice-quality bedding yet still keep our price low. This is a family-owned business. However, accidents happen! If you spill something on the sheets or blankets, please alert us immediately so that we can wash it. Thanks!
Strip the beds of sheets when you leave, then fold the blankets and place on the beds.
If you are here for more than 2 days, double bag your trash and place it in the crawl space at the back left of house.
Communicate to us promptly if the accommodations to not meet your needs or expectations. Give us a chance to fix it – because we will try!
Thanks for reading all our rules! We love our guests and look forward to hosting you.
