The Maine Retreat is a quiet oasis close to the action of Deep Creek Lake, yet nestled in a private lakeside community. A short trail walk through privately owned woods takes you from cozy, quiet seclusion to the beauty of Deep Creek Lake's shores. This home is for the outdoor enthusiast, the nature lover, and the wildlife watcher. City slickers need not apply-- welcome to Maine!
Take a seat on the Covered Porch or take a stroll around the property-- 3 Acres of Private Woods, with a Trail to the Lake, are yours for savoring. Take the Canoe out and see if you can catch local bass, bluegill, perch, or walleye with the Fishing Rods, Tackle, Paddles and Lifevests we provide.
Within 10-15 min., you'll reach Deep Creek Lake activities, and when you return home, partying neighbors and bright street lights won't interrupt your view of the clear night sky, the beautiful sounds of nature, or peaceful alonetime with your loved ones. Three equal-sized bedrooms with a queen-sized bed, two full-sized beds, and a pull-out sofa easily accommodate 6 - 8 adults with these four beds.
The backyard firepit is sure to be a place where memories are made, roasting hotdogs, making smores, and catching up with those who mean the most.
More Features of The Maine Retreat
The large front and back yard offer plenty of Kid-Friendly and Pet-Friendly space for outdoor games, such as horseshoe, badminton, volleyball, and a Southern favorite, cornhole (beanbag toss). You'll find these and other fun items (frisbee, water guns, etc.) in our gaming closet. You'll enjoy hours of indoor family entertainment from the satellite TV, DVDs, Videos, CDs, WiFi, PlayStation and PS2 games on rainy mountain days. Bring your bikes, as the North Glade Hills community is a great place to ride. Kids can ride through the neighborhood and adults can enjoy the long country roads. Nearby Deep Creek State Park has hiking trails, boat launch, public beach with picnic areas and basketball courts, a science center, and tourist/info desk.
Guests have full use of the property, with the exception of our locked owner's supply closet in the dining area. Guests may also use our Association's shared lake access area at North Glade Cove on Deep Creek Lake.
Before you arrive, email or call to learn insider tips about the area. Once you arrive, you'll find a home-made guest book, chock full of our favorite places to relax, eat, and explore. A local property management company is available to respond to house needs 24 hours a day. We're also just a phone call away.
A few items are available upon arrival. We provide a starter roll of toilet paper and paper towels. Dish detergent and basic kitchen items are supplied. A few logs of wood should be outside to get your first fire going. For safety reasons, we prefer not to stock fire starters in our log home:)
We expect that guests will take care of our home during their stay. Positively no smoking in the house.
We try to ensure that pet-allergic guests can still choose our home. Therefore, pets are allowed with permission, for an additional $100 fee, which is charged after the initial AirBnB transaction is processed. Pets that cannot stay off of furniture or beds, and pets which scratch floors, etc. are not accepted. Pets may not "go" on the lawn. They must use the woods behind the house. Please pick-up after your pet.
We ask that everything is returned to the way it was found. The internet and tv connections should not be adjusted. We ask that all dishes are washed and returned to their proper place. Garrett County has an enforceable noise ordinance- "Quiet Hours" are between 10PM and 8AM. You may use our canoe, but canoe/fish/swim/stay here at your own risk. Enjoy your stay and notify us of any issues before you go!
He's from Maine. She's from Maryland. He loves to fish. She loves the spa. We found a perfect marriage at our cabin in Deep Creek Lake and he proposed here, right down by the water. We love to travel and we love a good vacation. When we left MD for ME, we couldn't leave our cozy cabin behind. After a few years in ME, we started craving some winter sun! Our FL home provides much needed R&R for our family, and our MD cabin is unique and irreplaceable. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do, wherever you choose to stay!
