We stayed here for 4 nights and absolutely loved it! Grilled burgers and steaks on the deck, enjoyed the fire table, and the cozy couches. One day it rained the entire day and we didn't mind one bit! 10/10 Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We can't say enough about how much we enjoy our occasional weekend getaways at this charming cabin. It has everything-lake access, hot tub, games and smart TVs, fire pit, all in a quiet wooded setting. The cabin decor is charming and very clean with all amenities, so you can pack light and simply enjoy your stay. Very easy booking via Vacasa website.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Golden A-Frame. I rented the house for a birthday trip and it was spacious enough to fit all 6 of my friends. The big hit was the hot tub. After a day of hiking we sure enjoyed just relaxing by submerging in the hot tub. I loved that there were enough towels, blankets, pillows, and hand soaps during the stay. I took a few cooking utensils, but you don’t need to take anything because the kitchen has everything that you need. The fire pit and gas grill on the deck were great. We had a great time grilling and roasting marshmallows at night. The house is a 15 minutes drive from Deep Greek State Park, where you can find several hiking trails. The community where the house is located, has a residencial swimming and boat riding area. We had some issues with the garbage disposal but Vacasa costumer service line was quick to respond and sent a person the next morning to fix it. I will sure be renting this place again and I am hoping I can’t stay longer.

The Golden A-Frame is a spacious and cozy cabin, with all the amenities one would need! The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful, well kept, and the neighbors themselves are very friendly. The community docks were only a 15-20 min walk from the cabin and an even shorter drive. Despite it raining for the majority of my trip, there were plenty of games available in the cabin (i.e. shuffleboard, darts, board games) and Netflix available to keep busy! I would definitely book again, especially for hopes of good weather to be able to enjoy the fire pit, hot tub, and grill!

This was our second brief stay at this comfy home this summer and we will be back again. As before, the home was clean with essential amenities including bedding, towels, and soaps. The quiet, wooded location is a perfect setting. We were able to take advantage of the community lake access on a lovely sunny day and come back to the cabin's outdoor fireside seating, and deck hot tub. While the cabin has many TV's and games, what we especially enjoyed this trip was listening to the collection of old 45 records on the small record player!

We loved the A frame cabin! Just what the dr ordered! It’s in a remote area but not too remote; about 15 min beautiful drive from town (Unos/Lakeside Creamery area on the lake) and a few minute drive to swimming docks on the lake in the neighborhood (no dogs allowed there at that part of the lake though so that was a major bummer). Hot tub was great but couldn’t get it to turn off. We called about that and about the fire table not working but didn’t hear back even though we could tell someone came to check them out so that the reason for the .5 deduction. House was very clean and modern and had towels, sheets, blankets, soaps, dishes, etc. Plenty of games to play and 3 TVs with Netflix etc. Around the lake we rented jet skis and a pontoon with a tube on the back (dogs permitted on the pontoon) from Fun Time Water Sports (they were great!), went on the mtn coasters at Wisp (get there early and your dog can hang out with anyone not riding), climbed at Monkey Business, went swimming at Deep Creek Lake State Park (dogs welcome at the beach too just keep them on the grassy area, not the sand patch), and took our dog to the trail just outside of Swallow Falls Canyon Trail which was AMAZING playing in the river and swimming in the falls all day. If you have a dog, look for the gravel parking lot outside the park entrance (next to the one lane bridge).Awesome trip and again the hot tub was a definite highlight at the house. We stayed in bathing suits the whole week!

Our family rented this cabin for two weeks. It was exactly what we were looking for—cozy, old school, comfy and beautiful. It is as chic as it looks in the photos, plus there are lots of fun touches like a vintage Nintendo (our kids loved it!). The swimming/dock area in the community was great for the kids too (you won’t find many other roped off swimming areas like it on the lake outside of the state park). The kitchen was just right for the type of cooking we planned for—lots of grilling and minimal prep work. We felt very at home! Only recommendation would be to add a dehumidifier to the basement. We had a lot of rain during our stay and it definitely gets sticky.
Hello, Jaso! Thank you for your review, and for your suggestion to add a dehumidifier to the home. The local team has been notified to further address. We appreciate your feedback and welcome the opportunity to improve the home for our future guests. Thank you for staying with us, we hope to host you again in the future!

Golden A-Frame was charming, very clean, and well-stocked with lots of cozy places to unwind. It offered the perfect escape in a quiet neighborhood with lake access. You can swim in the lake by day and return at days end to relax in the hot tub, or just hang out on the large deck and grill out or roast marshmallows. The lake access was a short drive across the neighborhood with a few docks to swim off and a beach area as well as picnic tables and benches. I loved that there were a ton of towels, dish soap, shampoo, etc. including Mrs. Meyers hand soap. Also plenty of games to keep entertained and smart tv’s to relax with a movie. We will definitely plan to come back!

Went with just my boyfriend and within 5 minutes of being there we knew we already wanted to come back with friends! This sweet, cozy cabin has amazing amenities and there is plenty to do inside and outside of the cabin. The neighborhood's private lake docks are a few minutes walk away and if the lake isn't your thing, the cabin itself has so much to offer - darts, shuffleboard, a jacuzzi, board games, grill, large deck, smart TVs, fire pits, several areas to sit and relax, etc. The owners have thought through every detail, the design is absolutely beautiful, and the place was spotless. Completely recommend!

Golden A-Frame is a great house for a friends get away, family get away, or a couples get away! It is beautifully decorated and was very clean. The house has lots of fun amenities. There is a hot tub, fire pit, swings, a fantastic wrap around porch, darts, and shuffle board. It was the perfect location with a private beach and swimming area for the neighborhood and a quick drive to other parts of the lake. We will for sure be going back!

The home was very sweet and comfortable. Wooded lot. Have to drive to the lake. Well equipped. The deck and furniture were a bit dirty- had to really wash down the table and chairs before using it. Inside was clean.
The only issue was with Vacasa, the management company. We had a few questions prior to our visit and they were impossible to get ahold of. Multiple emails, texts and tried to call but there was always a 2 hour hold time. So we never did get the info we needed prior to our visit.
Thank you for providing feedback, Roxanne. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed this home and apologize for any delay in assistance while we experience a high volume of calls, emails, and texts due to the pandemic. We hope to better assist you in the near future!

My husband and I booked Golden A-Frame as a birthday getaway for just us. Due to some unforeseen circumstances we ended up taking our three children as well. We all had a wonderful time and the house was just what I had imagined!! Plenty of room for all of us, very clean, and well stocked. There were also lots of games and activities for my children, including board games, movies, and even crayons and coloring paper. We will definitely return!

Beautiful home. Lots of games and parking.

Our family got out of the DC area for a weekend away, and couldn’t have dreamed of how enjoyable our stay would be. The cabin was beautifully designed, cozy and warm, and had all the amenities that you would want for a relaxing weekend away. Plenty of entertainment choices (Netflix, YouTubeTV, Disney+, Amazon Prime), and the various environments for entertaining is perfect! Beautiful Loft relaxing loft. The fact that we could bring our dog along made it even better. May become routine visitors of this beautiful A-frame.
