About The Owner

We are a family of writers and communicators based in Washington DC. Mom and Dad have been journalists since the late eighties...and there is a good chance that our son will follow in the family business. Writing is what we love to do. But it is also a deadline-intensive line of business. So every chance we get, we head for Deep Creek Lake and Writers' Refuge.

The Owner purchased this chalet in 1999

Why The Owner chose Deep Creek Lake

It is a chalet-style house and we fell in love with it the minute we drove up the drive way. It was off the beaten path while still being convenient to all the best the area has to offer. You are five minutes away form the the lake and the slopes. Or you can just curl up with a book in bed...or on the deck...and get lost in the rustic surroundings.

What makes this chalet unique

The chalet is completely surrounded by the woods...away from all distractions. The views are gorgeous...especially at night...especially from the hot tub when you lean your head back on a starry night.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The kids loved having the lower floor to hang out and watch movies! The hot tub was a huge hit as well!

Cozy and private retreat.

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is comfortable, tucked away in the trees and a short drive to town, the lake, WISP ski area, or a hiking trail. Owners were very responsive and accommodating. Lots of utensils and cookware, but if you're staying for a while and want to do more in the kitchen, you might want to bring, for example, measuring cups and spoons. Lots of space for a larger group.

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed Friday and Saturday night in October. The House was perfect as described. We found everything we needed and more. Owners were great to work with and very accommodating. The location was perfect for fall in the trees with beautiful leaves all around. We followed the recommendation and got Brenda’s Pizza and it was great also. We will definitely go back next year It was Perfect. Thanks Patty for the use of you lovely home. The Browns

Would recommend this home to anyone seeking spiritual renew and relaxation from the grind. To the owners thanks a lot for everything.

PEACEFUL AND RELAXING STAY!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was very relaxing and peaceful. We had 10 people total but the house was more than enough room. Its secluded enough to be at peace, but also very near the lake, which was just a short drive away. Several kitchen pantry items were available. The hot tub was a hit :) We grilled all our meals then watched movies which were provided in the basement; great selection. The owner was hands on and very good at communicating. Property was clean, but since its surrounded by trees, some leaves flew in and of course, moths and bugs. But that happens when you live with nature :) There was only one shower on ground level, but the upstairs bathroom only has a tub. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend/relative. I am already planning my next stay at this property during the winter season! Thank you, Patty!
