Dog-friendly lakefront cottage w/dock, firepit & lovely views

You'll have every necessity for a memorable lakefront vacation at this two-bedroom Swanton cottage, a vintage retreat on the shores of Deep Creek Lake with a dog-friendly living space, an outdoor firepit, and a dock for fishing, swimming, and launching kayaks.

This small cottage sits at the end of a quiet gravel road, on the shores of an inlet of Deep Creek Lake. Dangle your feet from the dock as you sip your morning coffee, sunbathe on the sandy swimming beaches at Deep Creek Lake State Park three miles northwest, and pass the winter months on the slopes of Wisp Resort seven miles beyond.

Wake each morning to the sounds of chirping birds and set the table in the enclosed sun porch for breakfast with a view of the lake. Grab your fishing poles and kayaks as you head down to the dock, spend the afternoon playing fetch with your dog in the yard, surf the free WiFi, and watch the evening stars come out as you tell stories around the firepit.

This home is also accessible for guests with limited mobility, including a wheelchair ramp outside and grab bars in the master bathroom tub.

Enjoy the simplicity of lakefront living - book today! A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.

Great lakefront home

The house was old, but very comfortable. We spent most of our time out on the screened-in porch, when we weren’t floating in the Lake off the large dock.

I can’t say enough about the Vacasa service, though. We encountered an issue with the e-lock, but a phone call to the main Vacasa site resulted in a QUICK return call from a local Deep Creek Area Rep. He immediately resolved the problem...over the phone.

Again, the house is very old, and the interior, an obvious retrofit, is equal parts outdated and quaint. Every system worked as advertised, except the gas stove. Of course, a gas fireplace is unnecessary in July.

Vacasa, you’ve made yourself a return customer with your excellent customer service!
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, Richard! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and found our on-site staff helpful and accommodating. We are happy to report that the gas fireplace is working as should, and we look forward to your return!

The beds were comfortable the views were great. The only thing I would suggest is that the place needs some updating with carpet and livingroom furniture.

Old, outdated, broken baseboard heaters, hot, musty, smelly, and is a converted garage into a "cottage". It was dark and dingy with little to make it worth the cost. My friends and I spent our weekend outside the house avoiding it. Thankfully it did have a dock so we were able to spend our time there. Vacasa was understanding until the local vacasa representative contacted me. He was defensive and did not want to hear any complaints. I won't use them again.
Manager response:
We are so sorry to see our guest was displeased with our home and services. We wish this guest had called during their stay so we could have assisted them immediately. We could not find anything wrong with the heater, but we are working with the owner on doing updates. Thank you!

Loved the porch, dock and the seclusion.
