Overview

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!

Great location on the lake!

  • 4 of 5

House accommodates a good # of people. Could use some updating in kitchen, bathrooms. Would have loved a deck to sit out and enjoy morning coffee or drinks at night. Great dock and cute fire pit area.

Property is wonderful. House needs some work

  • 3 of 5

We had a great time at this property. The house location and yard, dock is wonderful. The house needs some updates, but clean. Real potential in this property if they would update bathrooms, carpets etc. Would visit again though. Owner was very nice and answered all our questions, problems

A beautiful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

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.
