|Minimum Stay||2 - 7 nights|
'LAKE EFFECT' is our new vacation home at Deep Creek. Our family has been visiting and enjoying the lake for twenty years - and looking for a lakefront home to call our own for the past decade. In April 2014 we finally found it.
The home is a cedar sided three level lakefront chalet. Formally listed as 3 bedroom, 2 bath -- but we also have a loft with twin sleeper and a lower level with 'sleeping nook' (we can't call it a bedroom by lake rules). The nook has a queen and a full with its own flat panel LED tv.
The upper level has two bedrooms, one queen, one king and the upper full bath. Queen bedroom has a 32' LED flat panel tv; King has a 36' LED unit and a separate walkout to private deck facing the lake - a great spot to enjoy your morning coffee, read a book or stare at the stars over the lake. Note: we added a whole house ductless heat/ac system in early 2016. The system allows separate heat and a/c controls for each living area and bedroom so you can select your personal comfort level.
Main Level includes one bedroom with a King plus 36' LED tv and separate walkout to main deck level. Another full bath on this level plus fully outfitted kitchen (all new appliances in summer 2016!).
Great room is a massive open space featuring cathedral ceiling bounded by all glass from floor to ceiling that opens to the main deck and the lake! Brand new leather sectional with 55' LG HD plus DVD and On-demand/Netflix/etc is situated nearby the toasty wood-burning fireplace - for those sundays in the fall/winter when a football game on the big screen is in order (we have Xfinity X1 system with full NFL and other sports networks included and HD signal).
The lower level also includes separate walkout deck area plus a newly-finished family room with another massive flat panel LED, DVD, music dock and game room with new pool table. A queen sleeper is included in the family room furnishings.
Around the corner from the game room/family room is the sleeping nock highlighted previously. Separate from each is the newly finished laundry room that includes washer/dryer, wash sink, ample space for hanging your clothes and sporting gear after a day on the lake or slope; and a separate full size refrigerator/freezer for your use.
Walkout from the family room and you'll experience the true 'Lake Effect' when you take five steps into the top of the line Hot Springs hot tub overlooking the lake front area and fire ring.
Main level deck features all high-end Kingston outdoor furnishings and seating for 12 nearby the new gas grill for your outdoor bbq pleasure!
Lakefront is gently sloping with a mix of just enough white oaks to add some shade and ample light to let you work on your tan in the lakefront hammocks or enjoy smores in the fire ring! Quiet neighborhood with safe no-traffic wooded roads for walking, biking or taking your favorite pup for a stroll. Picnic table with private dock just a few steps away highlights the waterfront features and completes the 'Lake Effect' at our home!
Thanks for looking, we hope to have the opportunity to share our new place at the lake with you and yours!
Annapolis is home but Deep Creek is where we'd rather be . . . :). We have been visiting the lake for 20 years and practically raised our kids on that lake and the slopes. Now they're able to ski and wakeboard without us so we get to enjoy some quiet time - thus the 'Lake Effect'.
Paul and Stephanie Peditto purchased this house in 2014
For twenty years we've been looking for the right home in the right location with the features we found most important from our many visits to the lake. We spent a few months after settlement putting our personal touch to the home and are truly happy with the results. Great lakefront in a location that's super quiet and relaxing but still just a few minutes from all of the 'action' - it's really a wonderful location to vacation any time of year. We hope you'll agree!
The house is listed as 3 bedrooms but we finished the basement with a full family room on one end with pool table, foosball, huge flat screen and pull out queen sleeper; then we added a 'sleeping nook' (4th bedroom) to the other end with a queen bed and full bed - and separate tv/dvd flat screen. With the existing 3 bedrooms, the loft and the lower level add-ons, we can comfortably sleep 12-14.
We also added a new ductless mini-split air conditioning system that allows independent thermostat control over the main living area and each bedroom. Super quiet, efficient and ensures individual comfort control for every guest.
First, the owners are super accommodating - tending to our many questions in advance and making sure all was in order. Their 'things to know' sheet is spot-on with tips on the house, the lake and where to eat/drink. House is wonderful too! Room for everyone to spread out and enjoy their own space. Hot tub is just a few steps from rear door so it's not hateful even in single degree temps to make the jump into the tub. Sitting with flakes falling and stars shining on this completely silent lakefront was truly epic! For our less adventuresome crew, the new 'pro level' pool table was a great feature (other homes we've stayed in have old recreational tables that are just torture to play). House is adjacent to the neighbors home but we never saw anyone else during our stay and apparently there are no other rentals nearby as we had most of the peninsula to ourselves the entire time...notwithstanding a handful of ice fishermen in the cove - they were catching fish but we weren't about to try that ---- maybe next trip since we'll definitely be back to Lake Effect in the future!
The Lake Effect property is the ideal vacation home. The home is well equipped for families with plenty of space. The layout provides a little space for everyone. The downstairs offers plenty of room for games. We enjoyed eating meals on the deck watching the activities on the lake. The property has just the right amount of sun and shade. We spent most of our time on the dock. This was our second vacation at Deep Creek and the best yet. The house is on a quiet street and while the neighbors are close on one side, the property provides plenty of space to play games, lie in the hammocks, relax in the hot tub or sit by the campfire. The owner provided plenty of fire wood which was just one of the many amenities. The owner was very prompt in responding to questions and checked in during our stay to see if we needed anything. We would highly recommend this home for the perfect family vacation!!
Our families live 12 hours from each other. I found this vacation house that was 6 hours travel for all 3 families & nestled in a beautiful, lake & Forrest area of MD. We had an awesome weekend together. Will definitely do it again. We didn't bring our dogs but the owner was very generous with an invitation❤️
We had a blast at the lake and in this home! Owner's can't control the weather but they made sure that the house has everything else you need - just bring your food and other 'essentials', the home has the rest. Pool table, foosball, great hot tub, indoor wood fireplace and outdoor fire ring, decks galore with views of the lake from all of them and beds everywhere for everyone! The house is close to one neighbor but they were never there or otherwise kept to themselves and our experience at DCL is it's hard to find a home with private dock and great features that doesn't have neighbors...especially for less than $7k/wk!
We also enjoyed that fact that this is a quiet community. As the owners suggest, you can walk around the neighborhood without worries about traffic and our dog loved the other friends who walked with their owners every morning. Plus you're still close to everything - five mins to movie theater, restaurants and ski resort (we'll be back for a winter junket!).
Loved it and can't wait to visit again - thank you!
The property is very spacious, has a fully equipped kitchen, and wonderful views. We loved the fireplace and the kids enjoyed the basement/play room. We had a wonderful time. The owners are very responsive and helpful. Definitely a great place to stay and we would love to be back.
My family and I were really looking forward to our trip to like affect cabin. We were very pleased with our stay and would recommend this cabin to others. One of our favorite parts of the cabin was a wood-burning fireplace which we maintain for most of the weekend. We all agreed that this cabin would be nice to enjoy during other seasons when you can take advantage of the fire pit, the hammocks and the dock to the lake. We hope to return :)
