Deep Creek Family Weekend
Outstanding house that was perfect for our family of 12. The house is spacious and bright because of the number of windows. We really enjoyed the deck and the view of Deep Creek Lake. The entire family enjoyed the area and as an avid road cyclist I found great places to ride and further explore the area.
Dream home for a group vacation
This is a fantastic home to go with a large group. The house is even more beautiful and comfortable than the pictures suggest. The spaces are large and comfortable, the view fantastic, the kitchen very well appointed, the furniture very comfortable. We would come back a million times!
Only a few small details could have made our stay better: 1) a 10 am check out for a group that large is too early. Even the standard 11am would be a huge improvement, it's hard to get that many people ready to go, and the house cleaned up by 10. 2) They really mean it when they say you should bring your own consumables. We had to go out to buy toilet paper by the first night, and there wasn' t even a small amount of dish soap, for example, which we did not think to bring. These small details would be inexpensive, and make the stay much more convenient for guests.
That being said, these are minor gripes. I wholeheartedly recommend this home to anyone.
AC not working - memorial day weekend
We reserved this property in March 2019. We booked it for 2 nights for the memorial day weekend (5/25 to 5/27). We were looking forward to getting away and enjoying our trip to Deep Creek. We had planned to relax at home and enjoy our time indoors at this property. It was a warm weekend. The outside temperature was in the mid-80’s. We checked in the afternoon around 3pm on 5/25 - couple of hours later we realized that the temperature of the home remained warm and uncomfortable. The home was just not cooling enough.. The NEST thermostat showed a temperature of 78 degrees and it was pretty warm and stuffy in the home. It stayed 78 degrees all thru our trip. Bottom Line: Air conditioner was broken and we were not informed about this by the owner of the property !!!! She happily accepted our booking in March which actually said “yes” for air conditioning when we reserved. (Of note, we received a final contract only a week prior to our trip (May 16) which had some shady language in small font, that AC is not guaranteed). The house remained hot and stuffy all night – it just did not cool. We texted the owner immediately the next morning – she replied saying to open the windows, etc. She did not mention, I repeat – did not mention to us at all that the AC was not working when she very well knew that it is broken. The thermostat stayed at 77 degrees the next day as well and we called multiple times that afternoon and evening but she did not respond to our calls. We checked out on 5/27 and subsequently contacted the owner again about the AC issue after we got back, she then told us that the AC was not working. Can you believe it ??? Took our money and is now not willing to offer any compensation for the inconvenience this broken AC caused us. Instead she is hiding behind the shady contract language that “AC is not guaranteed”. This is totally unprofessional behavior on part of the owner. I would not recommend this property to anybody. (Also note, we we filed an official complaint with VRBO which did not help at all)
It is a shame that people give false information. We were in constant communication with them and NOT ONCE did they complain about the AC. It was in the 60’s lower 70’s not 80’s. We live there and the temp was very comfortable. The reason VRBO didn’t help them is because it was a scam to get money back. VRBO contacted me and I have all the text messages from these renters with NO mention that the AC was not working. The Nest was not locked and they could have changed it.
It is important to know that they didn’t mention anything about the AC till they 6 hrs after they checked out.
Everything works and I hope they have a great summer .
Spacious home away from home right on mountain!!
This house has it all - 5 spacious bedrooms, huge kitchen with everything you need to cook any meal, family room with pool table and gas fireplace, hot tub on back deck and all within a short walk of the slopes. We will definately be back next year to enjoy all the amenities this home has to offer. Thank you Judy and Tom for sharing your lovely home.
Great Ski-in Ski-out rental....We were a very short walk away from Main Street trail. Perfect for experienced skiers (but no access to Green Circles or Blue Squares from this location).
Shared space in this house was great - lots of areas for large groups! Kitchen was fully stocked with plenty of flatware and cookware.
Everything was very clean and well maintained. Both wood burning fireplace and gas fireplace. Prefect for winter getaways!
Overall, great stay!
Perfect Winter Getaway
