About Stacy Sweitzer

Our Mission

Offlake Rentals offers AFFORDABLE VACATION RENTALS - accommodations comfortable for your family & your budget!

The Offlake Rentals Team

Why Stacy Sweitzer chose Deep Creek Lake

large, open house with multiple gathering areas. Great mountain and lake views from every room. Private dock and private lakefront just down the path out your back door.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The layout of this home was perfect for two families. There was alot of space for everyone to enjoy. The basement space was great for teenagers. The downside was all the steps to the lake with small children. Another downside was the outside entrance to the game room. It would be used more if there was a better way of getting to the room. Although that is a minor problem. It was a great place and we loved every minute of our stay. I would recommend this house to anyone.

Best stay yet in Deep Creek

  • 5 of 5

A group of my friends plan an annual trip to Deep Creek every year. We typically stay in a different house each time and since the numbers have grown, we have needed larger houses as the years have gone by. We were nervous the size of this house would not be enough. Fortunately, to our surprise the house had room for at least twice as many people. Very, very spacious house. The condition of the house was fantastic, featuring an open, newly renovated kitchen and living room which accommodated our large group very well. The bedrooms were in great condition. My wife and I stayed in the master bedroom and it was unbelievable. The house has a back deck that spans the length of the house which was great for Bbqing and enjoying the scenery. There is also a large gameroom located on top of the master bedroom. It was rarely used by us but would be nice if you had kids to deal with. The only issue with the gameroom is there is only one entrance and to get to the entrance you have to walk out the front door and all the way around to the side of the house. Minor issue for us but could be a real issue in winter months or if you had kids using the gameroom.

The location of the house is prime. It is located near the middle of the lake just outside of the busy area near bills marine and the honi honi. The honi honi and grocery store were less than 1 mile from the house which made it very convenient when additional items were needed. Also, bc the house isn't located in a cove, we had no seaweed problems which was a huge issue with houses we had rented in the past. We had no problem just swimming off the dock.

The only two negatives from this house was he fact that the gameroom cannot be accessed from inside and also that the backyard was pretty steep. We couldn't play bocce or corn hole bc it just wasn't possible.

Other than that, this may be the first house worthy enough for a return visit from our group of friends. Unbelievable house and stay! Highly recommend!

Nice vacation home!

  • 4 of 5

Offlakes rentals were great to deal with. The home was clean and nicely equipped. Quality furniture in the great room. ( Lazy Boy) The beds were pretty saggy...but over all the home served our extended family of 5 adults and 4 busy boys well. We only used the game room once the whole week as it is upstairs with an outside entrance. I will warn you there are steps everywhere. We live in a ranch home and being at Shenandoah gave us our exercise.:)it has wonderful lakes views...the home could use spruced up outside but the inside where we spent most of our time was great. We would rent this home again.
