About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom lakefront house

Happy Ours is a lakefront property with its own dock. Bring your boat or Jet Ski or rent one there. The house isn’t fancy (“rustic” is more appropriate) but the property is absolutely beautiful on a quiet part of the lake with less boat traffic than most parts of the lake. The house can comfortably sleep 14, and the large kitchen will allow you to cook or bbq your meals. The house is just a short drive or boat ride to restaurants, the movie theater and The Creamery (DCL's best ice cream). Spend your day tubing, skiing, wakeboarding or just swimming in the lake. Relax in the hammock or have cocktails on the dock while you watch the beautiful sunset. Roast marshmallows over a bonfire and be amazed at the number of stars in the sky. Hiking adventures at Swallows Falls and Herrington Manor state parks are just a few minutes away. Washer/dryer and DVD/video player. You will LOVE Happy Ours!

About Dianne Gurdak

We bought this house when we were expecting our 4th child. We have found it to be a retreat from the hectic life we lead. We have spent countless happy hours tubing, skiing, swimming, sunbathing, and relaxing there during hot summer days. In the evenings we have bonded over board games, bonfires, movie nights and charades. We all love going to the lake, especially our kids. There is so much to do there! As our kids' lives get busier allowing us less and less time to spend there, we would like to offer others the opportunity to re-connect and create memories of their own.

Dianne Gurdak purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Dianne Gurdak chose Deep Creek Lake

A beautiful property on the lake that you'll fall in love with. You can truly unplug and relax at Happy Ours.

What makes this cabin unique

One of the rare properties at Deep Creek with a cleared level lawn leading to the lake. Take a look at the pictures, but even the pictures can't do justice to the beauty of Happy Ours!

A beautiful place to stay.

I can't say enough about how nice this house is. We enjoyed the lake, the dock, a bonfire and just relaxing in a nice clean house. The owner was wonderful to work with and this house is in a wonderful location.

Beautiful Location and Comfy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Happy Ours is a "homey", comfortable cabin with all the requirements for a relaxing stay. The most spectacular thing about this rental is it's beautiful location right on the water. Our guests included our adult children and their partners as well as extended family members. The family enjoyed hiking in the parks and canoeing on the lake. We found it so relaxing to sit on the dock in the sun with the refreshing September breezes blowing across the lake. The cabin itself could use a little fixing up, however, the amazing location more than makes up for any lack in appearance. Diane was very helpful in answering our questions and flexible in accommodating our schedule. Our dog had the best time too.

The lot is awesome with great water views and dock.

  • 4 of 5

The house is dated but clean with a large kitchen.

The house is very close to the water front and dock and that is where we spent most of our time enjoying the views and swimming of the dock. The kids had so much fun they did not want to leave!

Thank you for everything.

Beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the location and the homey feel of the cabin. The yard is huge with plenty of chairs to lounge in and relax. The boat dock was very accommodating to both swimmers and boaters. A very roomy kitchen for the entire family to gather in. Also a dead end road makes for a wonderful walk. We loved it and are already looking ahead to next year's vacation.

Rustic awesome location!

  • 4 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at Happy Ours. There's plenty of room for everyone, well appointed kitchen, comfortable beds, and have never needed AC! There's always a little breeze by the lake. The best feature for our family is the quiet location near the dam on Deep Creek Lake. This year we also did some fishing with some success! The dock is great and the shallow area by the shore is perfect for little ones to play. We would definitely recommend this cottage for a relaxed, worry free vacation.

Relaxation galor!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a weekend and had such a wonderful time. Even the teenagers who did not have cell phone service while we were there did not want the weekend to end. The cabin is very quaint and homey so perfect for our family. My girls enjoyed looking at the photos on the walls and discussing how much fun that family had at their cabin. My 4 year old son enjoyed the toys of course.  We rented a boat and spent a lot of time on the lake, sat on the dock at night loving the quiet and stars… It was a much needed getaway at a perfect location. I would recommend this cabin to anyone who can appreciate the quaint homey environment. Thank you!
