Family Gathering in May
Despite a very rainy weekend, our family enjoyed our stay at Deep Creek Lake. The lake view is magnificent and the home very well appointed. The owner works very hard to make you feel very much at home.
Breathtakingviews well appointed home
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our two labs really enjoyed delinking from the dock. Very private, restful and rejuvenating!
Wonderful cabin by the lake.
The cabin was wonderful and just what I expected. It was cozy and comfortable with awesome views of the lake. It was convenient to get out and do things and comfortable just to stay at the cabin and relax. The large deck was great for relaxing in the afternoon after getting out and seeing Fallingwater one day and hiking another day. The ability to spend time with my dog made it all the more special. Mike, the owner, was super friendly and helpful. He provided lists for what to do in the area (I wouldn't have known Fallingwater was so close and was great for a part day trip) and checked in while I was there to make sure everything was ok. I would definitely recommend Almost Gone and stay here again.
Almost Gone is good to go
Comfortable home. Beautiful setting. Perfect for a small family lake vacation. Dogs like it too.
Beautiful cabin- inside and out!
We stayed for a long weekend in February. Leading up to arrival, the owner was very helpful and sent a packet with directions, things to do in the area, how to work the technology in the house, etc. Upon arrival, you notice the breathtaking view of the lake behind the cabin. The cabin was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook all the food we brought and to enjoy our meals. The second day we were there, it snowed a good amount and it was absolutely beautiful. We made a fire, cooked on the grill and sat and watched the snow fall on the lake while we played games and ate dinner. We were pleasantly surprised that they actually plowed and treated the roads leading up to the cabin. We thought since it was kind of further off the main road, we would have an issue getting out and there was not at all. The other guests and I fully intend on coming back to this cabin in the summer to take advantage of the boat dock in the back yard. I highly recommend this cabin for the thoughtful owner as well as the views and spacious living space.
Almost Gone - Great location for all Seasons
We loved our weekend stay at Almost Gone. Michael is a responsive and informative host. He gave good suggestions for hikes and entertainment. The cabin is lovely and well equipped with modern conveniences. The "smart" house with Google Alexa technology was all new to me, but fun to use. The best thing about this location is the view of the lake. With no leaves on the trees and the lake frozen over, it was really spectacular. I would come back again in other seasons to further explore the area and spend more time in the old growth Hemlock forests.
Definitely don't miss hiking at Swallow Falls/Herrington Manor state park, the hike and the waterfalls and bathing pools are spectacular among old growth forests.
