Peaceful and quarantined exactly what I was looking for. Had a small issue with turning the water on, but everything came out good I the end. Would definitely stay again
Alec D. Feb 2020
The water has a strong metallic smell that makes it impossible to drink or want to bathe in. It smells as if something had died in the water. If this wasn't an issue, it would be a 5 star review
Manager response:
Hi, Alec! Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay. A sulfur odor is normal for the water in this area, but we have reached out to the owner to see if there is anything we can do about this. We hope to see you again!

The house itself was very clean The kitchen was well equipped and the layout very conducive for our family! We enjoyed the deck but did wish we had a fire pit. The huge window in the living room was wonderful. Bedrooms very spacious and Beds very comfortable. We really appreciated the pass to the park! We loved this house and would definitely rent again.

This house was situated on a convenient street, with parking in the driveway. Right away, we could see that everything was very clean and well maintained. The house had three large bedrooms, and easily slept the 6 adults in our family group, with two rooms with king sized beds and one bedroom with a queen and a full bed. The spacious living room had an immense picture window that allowed us to view the beautiful forest behind the house. We sat and gazed out into the woods, watching deer as they passed by. The kitchen was well equipped and attractive. Furnishings were comfortable, and the decorating was sweet for a cottage in the woods. Really, we all loved the house and agreed that we would like to return someday!

This house is clean and well located. It’s also close to all DCL amenities and some nice walking/hiking paths. Great place and reasonable rates!
Susan V. Jul 2019

Elena K. Jul 2019
You can’t beat this location: 5 min to pizza, movies, coffee, water rentals and state park.
The rooms are nice. The kitchen had all the cookware, but didn’t have any cooking basics. So bring your own spices and salt and etc. had a wonderful stay
Walter H. Mar 2019
Everything about this house was great. The bedrooms were spacious as well as the living area. I would definitely stay here again.
James M. Jan 2019
Great house, great location, 3 spacious bedrooms, nice sized family room, medium sized kitchen - only complaint is less than desirable water pressure; showering was a bit of a chore. Overall, very happy and would probably rent again given the overall value. Thank you.

Very cozy, ideal spot for a get-away weekend. Little bit hard to find but worth the trip. Came for my niece's destination wedding. No problems encountered, very clean and clear directions as to how to use the property and leave it for the next guests. Ideal for my husband who needs a reclining chair to sleep in and there were two he could choose from. First floor master made it convenient as well.
John L. Oct 2018
Large living room/family room open to dining area. Lots of seating and open space. Large bedrooms. Wooded view through enormous picture window. We will definitely have this property on our short list to visit again.
Brianne O. Oct 2018
My friends and I had a wonderful time! We loved the location, as well as, the wonderful view in the back yard! We would definitely stay here again.
ROXANNE M. Oct 2018
This house was sooooo lovely !!! It was very well kept and very well maintained. I just loved everything about it. It was great to look out the huge picture window and watch the wild life. Plus, it is in a very good location....right off of Route 219. The bedrooms were so roomy and comfortable and everything you need in the kitchen was provided. I would HIGHLY recommend this vacation home to anyone. I am taking away a lot of wonderful memories......THANK YOU !!!!!

The house was very clean and was extremely well-equipped. It was also close to Deep Creek State Park, grocery stores etc. This house definitely exceeded our expectations.
Gregory L. Aug 2018
The house is fine, but it lacks lake access and a fire pit in the backyard.
Donna B. Jul 2018
This was our second time staying at this home. It is the perfect size - wonderful wooded view in the back yard with a nice deck. It also has a well-appointed kitchen with everything you could possibly need.
Annie E. Jul 2018

Lisa R. Apr 2018
We loved the location and the home met all our needs. Cozy, warm and comfortable.
Bryan C. Feb 2018
This place was the best I could have asked for in a Deep Creek getaway home. Place was awesome, very well stocked with cooking supplies, super clean and just felt like I was staying at a clean family owned property. Will be back at this location in the future 100% of the time I stay in the Dee Creek area.
D D. Feb 2018
Very clean and comfortable. Immediately felt at home. Kitchen had everything we needed. Nice proximity to Wisp and shops - easy drive within 10 minutes. Would stay here again with no hesitation.
TIMOTHY R. Jan 2018
I looked at a lot of properties for our weekend at Deep Creek. Overall I am very happy with the house, the size, the amenities, the location, and the value.
Katie H. Oct 2017
We had a great weekend at Z Lake Retreat. The layout of the house is really nice with a master en suite on the first floor and two additional beds with a bathroom on the second floor. We loved sitting on the deck for our meals and loved the view of the wooded back yard. The house is very close to a grocery store (Arrowhead) if you need to pick up any last minute items!
Mary Ann D. Sep 2017
This was a very nice house. Really loved the deck. With the woods behind it we saw deer and a raccoon came up on the deck one night while we were sitting out there, which we could've done without! The kitchen had anything you would need for preparing meals. It was very clean and we enjoyed our stay.
Bill H. Jul 2013
From check-in until departure everything went so smoothly. We absolutely loved the little house. It was perfect for two couples and so nice to come back to after a day of sight seeing. An added bonus was a doe with two fawns that visited us on a daily basis. The rental was in a great location for us to venture from to enjoy all of the great scenery and restaurants in the area. We would definitely choose to vacation here again. No downside.
Nina T. Jan 2013
Coldwell Banker Deep Creek Realty made the rental process very easy and their customer service is phenomenal!! The house was clean and very well equiped. The location is great, close to all amenities. We look forward to staying here again very soon.

We enjoyed staying in Z Lake Retreat very much. It was 10 minutes from wisp ski hill, and in a beautiful wooded setting. The kitchen was so well equiped, it was a delight to cook. Loved the gas fireplace, and the layout of the home. Perfect for our family!
Cheri . Oct 2010
This pet-friendly house was gorgeous and very convenient to shopping, activities, downtown Oakland. We really enjoyed the large picture window looking out onto the woods - we saw a flock of turkeys in the back yard! All the bedrooms were very spacious, nicely appointed kitchen, cozy gas fireplace. I would highly recommend this to anyone with or without a dog!
