Lakefront home w/ private dock, hot tub, gazebo & incredible lake/ski views!

Surround yourself with lush woodlands and magnificent views of Deep Creek Lake at this three-bedroom McHenry home, a charming waterfront retreat with a private hot tub, a beautiful lakeside gazebo and dock, and a central location close to restaurants, shops, and ski slopes.

You'll find this cottage nestled among the trees on the eastern shores of Marsh Run Cove, the northern arm of Deep Creek Lake. Follow the staircase down to the private dock and gazebo at the water's edge, fill your days and nights with visits to Deep Creek Lake State Park and Black Bear Tavern and Restaurant, and return each winter to ski and snowboard at Wisp Resort across the water.

Between the cathedral ceilings, gas fireplace, and floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the lake and woods, the living space is full of coziness and comfort. Begin your mornings with pancakes and coffee in the full kitchen (with a dishwasher) and dining space, browse the free WiFi or flip through the newspaper in the warmth of the lake-facing sunroom, and walk down to the dock to hop on board your fishing boat for the day. Each afternoon, light the gas grill for a barbecue dinner, watch the sunset over the mountains from the gazebo, and retire to the outdoor hot tub, the indoor jetted tub, or the sofa for a night of cable TV and DVD favorites.

Whether you're an angler, a boating enthusiast, a skier, or a hiker, you'll find so much to love at this McHenry vacation home!

This house was lovely, warm and cozy with an amazing frozen lake view. The deck was huge and heated although it was hard to keep the room warm it was certainly comfy enough to sit and relax in winter. The gas fireplace was awesome for a warm cozy feel. The kitchen was equipped with pots, pans dishes etc. Only two drawbacks to this place was all of the stairs getting down to the house (especially for my mother-in-law). The double bed upstairs was really uncomfortable- it had a crater in the middle that my hubby and I kept sinking in to. overall it was a great stay.
Manager response:
Pamm - We are pleased you enjoyed your stay despite the stairs and the bed in the upstairs bedroom. We will be sure to address your feedback with the local staff and see what can be done about these items with the local staff. We look forward to hosting you again soon.

A really great place, perfect for a long birthday weekend. It has its own private dock perfect for a nice swim on a hot day. Additionally, great hot tub for the evening. It’s really close to great coffee shop, homemade ice cream and groceries. Will definitely stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay at Haleys lakeside cottage. It was clean and homey. The views were spectacular!!! Would definitely like to stay here in the summer.

The home is adorable, clean, and has a beautiful view. Also, having a private boat dock was wonderful. Unfortunately, since it sits on a steel hillside at the lake’s edge, there were many flights of stairs to navigate. My back and legs weren’t happy.
Manager response:
We appreciate the guests feedback. Pictures of the stairs from numerous angles can be found on this units listing page, we want to make sure that all future guests know the amount of stairs they will have to climb.

Charming little place; we enjoyed our stay here - the lakeside porch offers a wonderful view. Had a few minor issues upon arrival - have to say, the Vacasa property manager was more responsive than any other rental company we've ever dealt with at the lake. You'll do well choosing to rent from Vacasa at Deep Creek; we were very happy with their service.

There are 3 sets of steps of about 20 - 30 steps EACH, some of which are falling apart. You cannot put a boat over at this property. Close access to boat ramp though, which you have to pay for. You cannot use the garage. Good area, close to several parks, house was clean, supplies adequate. Pictures do not represent real size of rooms. Nice bedrooms. Could take blow up mattress for additional sleeping in loft area. TV's in every room. Good hot tub. There are quite a few repairs necessary, so it was over priced. No chairs to use on dock. There was a charcoal grill, but you need to purchase supplies to use it. Ash can had not been emptied for a long time.

First, if you are going to rent this place, you should know what it is truly like. No where did it indicate that there are 32 steps down to the front door. When we arrived the place was not yet cleaned and the man was still trying to get the hot tub clean. It was a mess. He did a great job emoting it and refilling it.
The sliding glass doors need repairs, one does unlock and the other does not lock. The master bath needs updated as the tub is all rested and scratched. Why advertise a tub with jets if it is all rusted and not appealing to get in. The upstairs sink does not have a stopper. I had to do some cleaning in the kitchen. The toaster oven was a mess and there were dishes in the dish washerthat were not washed. We had no idea where the key to the hot tub was and we had to call someone. They also did not indicate that there was no air conditioning, only two window units in each bedroom and something 8n the dining room with no instructions how to use it. The master bedroom cupboard has mildew. We had to burn candles in the den to take away the mildew smell. There is no way the cleaning service that we paid for could clean the place in the short time they were there.
We couldn’t get in until after 4:30. Coming down from upstairs
The handrail was black from dirt.
I trust your company when I rent a place on Home Away or VRBO and now I am very unsure that you what is written in the
right up is true to fact.
Manager response:
We appreciate the guests feedback. The locks for the doors are on the side of the door, they have been checked by local staff and are in perfect working order, we want all of our guests to feel safe. The A/C is located in the kitchen and the controls are on the front panel. Our local staff has talked to housekeeping and walked them through what needs to be cleaned and the standards Vacasa has for cleanliness.
