The house was very clean and organized. It has a great hot tub and a lot of privacy.

Such a wonderful house, all the things we needed, sweet decor, plenty of room. Loved the location, so private, and loved the hot tub!

This was our first trip to Deep Creek and after an issue with another rental company days before we were leaving, we found Monkey Hill Lodge! I’m so glad my previous rental got cancelled because this was the BEST switch in locations! We were back in the trees where it was quiet but close enough to the stores and parks to enjoy them! Also, we packed so much stuff not knowing what would be available at the rental but it was like staying in a nice hotel! Clean sheets and pillows, lots of towels, and the kitchen was fully stocked! Including dish soap, paper towels, toilet paper, and garbage bags! We were super impressed and checking in and out was a breeze! The WiFi was also had a good connection which was important because I had a possible work project to take care of! My husband and I really enjoyed our time here and will definitely consider Monkey Hill Lodge in the future and Vacasa for the wonderful stay!

The house was just the right size for my friends and I. The house is in the perfect location. It’s secluded yet close to the water. There’s also a little market just down the street. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t the best while we were there so the front porch was the perfect spot to play cornhole.

Perfect escape for a family getaway. House had everything we could have wanted a more! Stocked kitchen, spacious bedrooms, large table with lots of seating for games and meal time. Plus they provided plenty of towels, bedding, mini soaps, shampoo and conditioners in the bathrooms. Location was just 15 minutes from where we rented a boat on deep creek. There is a small country store less than 2 minutes from the house stocked with everything you could need. We all enjoyed our stay and would go back.

We had a great weekend away and would definitely stay again. The cell service was not great and the internet was slow at times, so be prepared. The house was very comfortable, everything was clean and well maintained.

Had a great time in this quiet house! We loved relaxing in the hot tub and cooking in the fully equipped kitchen!

The house was nice and it was clean. The air conditioning units throughout the house were very nice. The hot tub was nice but it was a little dirty. Overall very nice stay.
Manager response:
We are glad you had a great stay! We apologize that the hot tub was not cleaned properly prior to your arrival. We will follow up with our housekeeping team. We hope to host you again soon!

We loved the seclusion, the views, the closeness to Wisp Ski resort (about 20-25 min) and very spacious for a good price!

Our mini-vacation was great! Cabin was clean, convenient, peaceful. Loved waking up every morning to a few deer friends in the yard! The only thing I would change is to leave directions on how to turn on the fireplace and the mattresses were so uncomfortable. Some people may like a hard mattress but it was really uncomfortable for us! Other than that it was a beautiful cabin. Thank you!
Manager response:
Thanks for staying with us Cindy! We appreciate your feedback. Our local operations manager is dropping by the property to leave a note with the fireplace, and he will check the beds to see if they need replacing. Hope to host you again soon!

Love the remote location. Everything was provided in the home. The kids had a blast with the unfinished basement and space throughout- we have FIVE kids! We prefer not staying in town close to Wisp so the location was just perfect for our family. We brought our two labs and they enjoyed some freedom in the woods. Hiking trails around are awesome. Swallow Falls is only 15 minutes away and 5 minutes to the State Park. The hot tub was conveniently located for the cold exit into the home.

Vacasa Recommendation: Maybe put something down on the stairs outside the hot tub - it can get icy!

Renter Recommendation: The closest grocery store is 2 minutes away if you need anything; however, it’s VERY expensive ($6.00 for a small kraft salad dressing). Bring as much as you can in terms of food from home!

Great stay - thank you!

The stay was excellent!! We only stayed 4 night due to hurricane Florence but great getaway for the price. Our host Jay from Vacasa was very helpful as well. Definitely doing it again!!
