Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 12

Your Deep Creek tradition begins when you choose the delightful 4 bedroom chalet Swimming Bear Lodge for your next stay! Located on a large wooded lot, you will love being surrounded by nature in this tranquil setting.

Step inside to the main level and immediately embrace the warmth and comfort of the Great Room. Large cathedral ceilings create a bright and airy living space while the warm wooden beams and walls add comfort and depth. An impressive wood fireplace lends promises of evenings curled up in front a crackling fire while the snow outside falls gently to the ground. The open floor plans leads you into your dining area and fully stocked kitchen where you will be able to prepare your family's favorite dishes!

In addition to the full bath, the main level also has two more bedrooms, one with 2 twin beds and the other with a Queen sized bed. Each bedroom has been beautifully decorated and offers everything you need for a peaceful night's rest. 

Head to the upper level area where you will find a bedroom with a King sized bed, a full bath. This space is the ideal place for the kids to retire to after a long day of playful adventure on the lake!

Feel like staying inside and enjoying time together' Go down to the lower level Family Room where you can spend your afternoons playing pool or watching your favorite movies on the large flat screen TV. The lower level also has a full bath (shower only) and your remaining bedroom with a Queen sized bed and a double futon bed, TV, and ceiling fan. 

Your amazement continues when you step outside and behold the magnificent backyard. Stargaze and unwind in the evenings in the bubbling outdoor hot tub or bring the marshmallows and gather with family around the outdoor fire pit. The kids will love running and playing on the large manicured lawn set back on a quiet little lane. A short walk away you will find your dock slip where you can dock your rented boat or spend hot summer days cooling off as you splash and play in the water. (Please note that this home has approximately 125 steps down to the water). 

Location is key and you and your family will love the close proximity to area activities. A few minutes south and you will discover the small town charm of Oakland, our county seat, which boasts antique shopping, Farmer's Market, and multiple dining options. Head north and less than 5 minutes away you will be tackling the ski slopes at Wisp Resort. Swimming Bear Lodge is spectacular Deep Creek home that will provide you and your family with a lifetime of new memories. Call today to reserve this amazing home!

For your convenience, this home offers free wifi.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall it was ok. The hot water smells like rotten eggs and the cold water is yellow. The remote to change tv channels was missing on the main level. 3 pieces of 4" firewood with no kindling for a two night stay.hot tub blew a circuit so it was cold. Ripped up flooring in the basement bathroom. The view was great, lots of space and decent beds. The thermostat was programmed to drop to 60 every few hours.

Owner's Response: Hi Jennifer, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I am glad you were pleased with the size and lovely view at this home. I apologize for any issues that you encountered during your stay. There is no issue with the water. Rather, our team overlooked a step that needed to be taken during the pre-arrival set-up. This has been noted and added to the set-up process for future reservations. The thermostat programming has been addressed as well. Regarding some of the other items, we always recommend that guests to give us a call so that we can help resolve certain things quickly. There was ample firewood and its location is marked with a sign that you may not have seen. The remote was in the home when it was inspected before your arrival and may have simply been misplaced while you were there. Hot tub breakers will trip if they are splashed with water. It is important to keep splashing to a minimum. The hot tub has been checked, and it is functioning properly. I appreciate your feedback and hope that you will come back in the future so that we can provide you with a better experience. Thanks again, Stacy

Beatiful home with lots of space and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and i recently stayed at the property for a weekend getaway. I had previously stayed the year before.

When you walk in the first thing you notice are the beautiful updated hardwood floors. I have never seen such beautiful hardwood! The kitchen. Was newly renovated with stainless steel appliances and beautiful quartz countertops...new furniture through out. We loved the setting with its spacious outside decks and easy access to the lake. We also noticed there is a bonus room for sleeping down off the game room. This is a home i would love to book for the Holidays with family. Would highly recommend this home for summer sport or winter sport travelers as the skiing is a stones throw away!

Reviewer Comments:

We come to Deep Creek for a family vacation every year mostly minter time, but often for a 4th of July week as well. We've been to many houses. We do like this location a lot, the house is very nice, but very dated and needs a lot of up-keeping. At this point, everything there is very old and half broken. We couldn't unfold one sleeper at all, the bed frame in the basement bedroom is broken, over the stove microwave is broken as well, but instead of fixing it, they just brought another one which sits on the counter-top. Drive way was covered with the leafs which told me nobody was in the house since beginning of the fall. Little things that make it annoying to deal with, but overall not enough to get upset:). I would say that next time i would avoid this house unless i'd get a confirmation it's been updated and fixed.

We stayed at the Swimming Bear Lodge for 2 nights. The house was clean when we arrived and everything was as promised. There two full propane tanks, and everything else we needed.

Reviewer Comments:

We very much enjoyed our stay, but I want to give constructive criticism so things may be remedied for the next tenants. The property is nice, but the exterior of the home is very dirty (on the home itself.. cobwebs, etc.). We never did find the 125 stairs to the lake, as advertised. The shower in the basement is old and the water pressure in that shower and the kitchen is weak. We asked for maintenance for the inside fireplace, at around noon on Saturday and were told someone would be out that day. We called two more times and on the last call, were told someone would be out on Sunday. We never did see anyone and figured out the fireplace flue issue on our own.
