Dog-Friendly Country Cabin with Deck, Firepit & Air Hockey - Close to Yough River
Please note: There is a 13 night limit on reservations per local regulations. Reservations over 13 nights are prohibited and cannot be honored.
Experience the pleasures of country living at this three-bedroom Oakland home, a dog-friendly Maryland escape with a private deck and firepit, its very own air hockey table, and a wondrous location close to Swallow Falls, the Yough River, and Deep Creek Lake.
This two-level cabin is located on an open, grassy property, just one mile east of Swallow Falls and a put-in on the Yough River. Spend your days hiking and kayaking through Swallow Falls State Park one mile east, get your summer and winter thrills on the slopes of Wisp Resort six miles north, and discover the sandy beach and boat launch at Deep Creek Lake State Park seven miles east.
Make yourself at home beneath the shade of mature trees, where you can lounge on the private deck, shoot a few baskets in the driveway, or ready the gas grill for an afternoon barbecue. Take a seat at the picnic table with a cold drink, open a book on the bench swing, or take your dog for a walk around the neighborhood (please note that dogs must be leashed).
Lend a hand preparing dinner in the full kitchen (with stainless steel appliances and a dishwasher), and use the free WiFi to look up a few fresh recipes. Roast marshmallows for dessert around the outdoor firepit, challenge your loved ones to a post-dinner game of air hockey in the game room, and end the evening with a few cable or DVD favorites on the flatscreen TV.
Experience the natural wonders of this special region of Maryland - begin planning your Oakland escape today!

The location, the backyard with fire pit and the swing. The cows next door. The house. We loved it, this was our 2nd stay at Still Meadows.
Stephanie G.Jul 2022
The location was nice and the house had some nice amenities. The AC issues from previous reviews seemed to have been addressed. The only constructive feedback we have is that the mattresses weren’t very comfortable.
Sarah B.Feb 2022
Just as described, very clean and cozy. Great location near Swallow Falls. So nice that they allow dogs, and yet there were no dog smells!
Only complaint was that there was no basketball hoop (one of the reasons we chose this place).
Tyra D.Nov 2021
Great little cabin for a weekend getaway, very close to Swallow Falls. Would definitely stay again!
Susan N.Oct 2021
This house comfortably fit our family. There were so many activities made available from air hockey, badmitten, basketball, games, corn hole and more. Beautiful big lot for the pups to explore. The kitchen was very well stocked.
Lisa B.Jul 2021
We enjoyed our stay. The location was great right near the state park with beautiful waterfalls. It was frustrating that the code we were sent didn't work, and it took sometime to get a correct code since our cell coverage was spotty there and our calls kept disconnecting. Since we have dogs it wasn't a problem, but the unit really does smell like dogs, and we aired it out a bit with only a little success at improving the situation. Great set up and fun activities, though. (Basketball, air hockey, horseshoes, volleyball...)
Mary R.Jul 2021
Peaceful, quiet. Loved the cow’s and we saw a bobcat in the woods. Thanks for leaving the firewood. The place was very clean. A wonderful Vacation spot!!!
Katey C.Jun 2021
The house was well kept and clean. Lots of space and games if you have kids. Close to many restaurants. The only thing that could be improved was the ac unit upstairs.
Daniel B.May 2021
Well taken care of, clean, and close to the local amenities. Would definitely stay again!
KAREN L.Apr 2021
The cabin was exactly as it appeared on the website. Very clean and comfortable. Only negative was the couch smelled like dog.
Thank you for your review, Karen! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We have provided your valuable feedback to our local manager to address the issue with the couch. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope we can host you again!
Daniel R.Jan 2021
Would stay here again.
Ryan A.Jan 2021
The cabin was exactly how it was portrayed before getting there, and was always a great home to come back to from traveling the area. Hoping to come back someday, or send some friends out there!
Michael W.Oct 2020
This place was an awesome home and overall trip. It is set up for a great vacation with plenty of activities and close to a bunch of parks! My only complaint would be that the beds were very uncomfortable. We would definitely stay here again but just bring a blow up mattress! Also the place was immaculately cleaned from top to bottom.
Kristi T.Oct 2020
The house was immaculate and so welcoming. Loved the property and enjoyed the cows right next door. We will definitely go back again.
Alex M.Sep 2020
Clean and quiet place!
Crystal P.Jun 2020
It was quiet and relaxing....just what we needed after the last couple if months! The house was very clean and inviting....and bonus that there are cows next door that I jokingly named...#23 Moo Hefner and #8 Angus Young! I would recommend this house to everyone and it's only 1 mile from the entrance to Swallow Falls Park!
Hans H.Jun 2020
The location is well located to access Swallow Falls and Herrington Manor State Parks, as well as the Nature Conservancy’s Cranesville Swamp and Mount Nebo WMA. Games for the family, the fire pit, air hockey, and the basketball hoop were all highlights while at the place.
Dinia L.Mar 2020
We had a great time... House was nice and clean.. fire pit was a nice touch.. but it's definitely a lady bug infestation... Especially up stairs.. we caught at least 10 of them in a few hrs
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Dinia! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We apologize for any excess of ladybugs, and we'll be sure to treat and remove them. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
marianne p.Mar 2020
It was perfect! Clean and up to date. Plenty of parking. Close to everything.
Robin H.Jan 2020
Had everything we needed for our stay. 15 minutes from Wisp and attractions. Wishing the beds were a little more comfortable, other than that it was great!
larry d A.Oct 2019
The home was pleasant, clean, sitting in a beautiful setting.
Shannon E O.Oct 2019
Nice cabin with lots of entertaining activities, basketball, board games, outdoor games, etc. The only thing is I would suggest bringing an air freshener or candle as it does have a musty/wet dog smell in the entry way.
Thank you for staying with us, Shannon. We are glad you enjoyed the home though we apologize for any unpleasant odor you experienced. While we have not detected any persistent odors since your visit, we would have been happy to address any concerns had we been made aware of the issue. We look forward to hosting you again.
Charles G.Sep 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Still Meadows. Liked everything about the house.
Joseph B.Sep 2019
Loved the area, the house and property was really nice. Being able to sit outside and make S’mores over the campfire. Being there with part of our family was great.We come up to Terra Alta for our family reunion at my mother’s house. We enjoyed our stay just wish we could have spent more time there.
Andrea P.Aug 2019
Nice house, great outdoor, good location. The AC is quite noisy and without it upstairs is quite hot. Apart that, very nice place.
Kelli E.Aug 2019
We absolutely loved this. Beautiful, clean, comfortable place.
Sheryl D.Aug 2019
This was a great home base for our raft trip down the Upper Yough! Looking forward to exploring more of the area in the future.
Susan C.Jun 2019
Loved the grassy flat lot that was so nicely maintain for a family cookout for my sons high school graduation.. beautiful day and the home was very nice we will be back..
Eric O.Feb 2019
It was quite
Barbara K.Jan 2019
It was great for a girls weekend
Jessica H.Jan 2019
The place had everything we needed for a weekend away.
Ramsey B.Nov 2018
The house was perfect! Clean, great location, and lots of amenities. Definitely going to come back to this house at least once a year!
Dennis C.Oct 2018
The home was spacious, comfortable and somewhat secluded. My wife & I would book this home in the future should we visit the area again.
Robert R.Oct 2018
Cozy & perfect lodging with all the amenities from home and less than a mile from Swallow Falls and 4 miles from Deep Creek....but the $120 clean up fee is a little pricey if only staying 2 nights. Will have to stay longer next time to make it cost effective.
We appreciate the guests feedback. The cleaning fee is set by Vacasa and varies from house to house. The cleaning fee not only includes the cleaning of the house, but also the linens and cleaning of the amenities.
Tyler R.Aug 2018
We really enjoyed a nice quiet getaway. This house was perfect for that. It was tucked back in a nice area. We enjoyed making bonfires when the weather was nice and we enjoyed the company our the neighbors’ two cows. The house isn’t far from the lake and Swallow Falls. We would definitely consider coming back here again!!
Tammy K.Jul 2018
We loved this cozy and clean place for our friends gatherings.
we loved everything about it except for a bathroom. bathroom was clean but having only one bathroom for six of us a bit hard.
Janet W.Jul 2018
The house was very much as advertised, and well supplied with the basics you need!
Jackie A.Jun 2018
I loved the home but it was impossible to sleep upstairs due to the heat. It had to be close to 100 degrees upstairs.
gary s.Jun 2018
Everything as advertised. Loved the kindling and seasoned firewood...the best. Excellent WiFi...used outside at the firepit. Very clean and updated...would rent again.
Lymerka R.Apr 2018
This house was just perfect for our family. It was really cozy and comfortable. The long driveway was great for the kids to ride their scooter and skate board. The fire pit was great to make S'mores and just to hang out with the family.
Gerald M.Feb 2018
Very comfortable, cozy and clean in a lovely setting that's in the center of the most beautiful part Maryland.
The air hockey table and provided board games are great in the evening or if the weather isn't so good.
We were looking for something away (but too far away) from the crowds around the Wisp area, and you can't do any better than Still Meadows.
There was snow on the 2nd day of our stay and Vacasa ensured the rather long driveway was plowed several times.
