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.

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.

Great getaway

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was charming and perfect for a quick ski getaway. Owners were highly responsive and helpful to ensure we were in with everything we needed, and quickly provided the refund of the security deposit after checkout. Great location too, minutes from slopes or the Honi.

Loved staying at this Cozy Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I stayed at this cabin Christmas weekend (2016). We had a great time. The cabin is awesome and fully equipped with everything you need. It is very cozy and nicely decorated inside. The back deck & hot tub are a great addition. We really enjoyed the hot tub surrounded by all the pretty trees and rocks. Very relaxing! We went snow tubing at Wisp Ski Resort on Christmas Eve which was only a 5 minute drive. My 6 year old had a blast. Then spent the day at Swallow Falls the day after Christmas. It was about a 15 minute drive. I highly recommend going there. It is beautiful! The cabin is close to several restaurants & stores. The owners couldn't have been nicer. They were very accommodating and responded right away with information or questions we had. Thanks for a great stay. We will definitely be back!

A very memorable experience for our family

  • 5 of 5

We had the good fortune of staying in this charming cabin while at Deep Creek Lake this Fall. It was our first time to Deep Creek Lake in the Fall and this charming little treasure was just the icing on the cake. Thanks so much Dale and Sean for letting us experience your little piece of heaven. The cabin was extremely clean and very comfortable and allowed us to experience nature at its best.

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
