Great location between Lake and Wisp with close proximity to lots of activities and stores.
Great hot tub, fire pit, swing set, and lots of room! No AC which was not disclosed but fans were provided. . No WiFI which was disclosed
Caution to anyone with toddlers, the railing is not safe with spaces far enough apart that toddlers can fit through. They did provide baby gates for stairs but my nephew had to avoid the main level so as to avoid any falls through the railing.

Upon entering the townhome, we were hit with a musty, dusty smell. Walking through and investigating the origin of this smell revealed very outdated, filthy conditions. The cloth covered dining room chairs were covered in stains, the throw rug under the dining room table was dirty and smelled, two pedestal fans were covered in dust (which we took apart and cleaned in order to make use of them), a towel hanger in the upstairs bathroom was torn from the wall, outdoor door mats were covered in hair, outside furniture covered in dirt, living room furniture was old and also stained. The only redeeming value of the townhome is that the beds were comfortable and the showers nice. I stayed at this home with my brother for a family getaway. If either of us had children, we would have turned away, but we made use of the townhome simply for sleeping, showering, and bodily functions. I wish I could upload photographs taken to support my claims above. I will not be reserving this property if ever again vacationing at Deep Creek.
Manager response:
Michael, thank you so much for taking the time to provide your feedback. We apologize that the home was not in better condition upon your arrival and regret to hear that this was your experience while staying with us. Please know this is not our standard grade of presentation. The comfort and satisfaction of our guests is our priority and the experience you had is certainly not commonplace. We appreciate you bringing these matters to our attention and working closely with the homeowner to address these concerns. We hope you will allow us the opportunity to provide you with a truly exceptional vacation experience in the future.

Great place! Only thing was there was no WiFi and reception wasn’t great, I would recommend for owner to consider getting WiFi for guests. Beautiful spot right on the lake with a super clean and comfortable hot tub on the back deck. The surrounding neighbors and overall area was very quiet. The upstairs bedrooms were very very hot and there seemed to be no central air or window units, just fans for the bedrooms. Overall, I would come back here it is 2 minutes away from town and 10-20 minutes away from many state parks in the area!
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Lauren. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement regarding the Wifi and temperature control within the home. We'll pass your suggestions to the owner for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

We stayed as a family of four for three nights. The highlight for our 3yo and 6yo was definitely the hot tub. The large dock, which was a very short walk from the back door, had a lot of boats docked but a decent sized swimming platform at one end in shallow water made it great for our kids (but bring water shoes!). It did not appear that the canoes and kayaks pictured were available to us unfortunately. The fire pit is shared but we were the only ones we saw use it any of the nights we were there. There is also a small shared playground in the backyard which was great for our little one. The location is great with everything we needed close by. Inside was decent enough. Beds were fine, kitchen was small but had what we needed. Second floor deck was great! Living area left a bit to be desired. That was probably the only negative with our family in the evening. Due to having young children we relax w them watching cartoons or a movie and that was a bit tricky with the configuration of the tv and couches. Some essentials that were included were dish soap, dishwasher soap, laundry detergent, hand soap in all bathrooms, shampoo and conditioner, trash bags and hand towels. Small amount of all those but it was plenty for us. They also provided plenty of towels!

Perfect little town home right on the water! We had a great time boating and enjoying views and wildlife!

This place was the perfect atmosphere for my girls weekend with friends! It’s right on the lake which makes it so nice to wake up on the water. The hot tub was the highlight of the trip! Also, the Greene Turtle is right across the street so it’s perfect to walk to for a few drinks and food!

Place was beautiful, loved every second of it!
Todd B. Aug 2019
We enjoyed time to be away with the family at this home most. The hot tub is a great addition and the lake to play in just a few short steps was fantastic!

People said this place is outdated and yes it has some outdated parts, but this is a place for peace and has everything one would want!

Great town too!

Great spot on the lake made it easy for kayak launches. Air conditioning would have made it perfect.

The only positive about this unit is the view of the lake. The decor is dated and tacky. The kitchen is small and dated but well stocked with dishes and utensils. Looks like they're in the process of refreshing this unit but they have a long way to go.
Manager response:
We are pleased to say the owners have painted the unit, and put in a hot tub and screen doors this year. There are even more improvements planned for this fall. Thank you!

Townhouse was right on the lake with a great boat dock to access the lake. The listing needs to make this more clear so that people with kayaks and paddleboards know that this is a great place to launch in a no wake zone.

A lovely condo that feels just like a lake cabin. Nice balcony and deck with a great view of the beautiful lake.
