Our home “Absolutely Shore” at Deep Creek Lake is located on a quiet cove that provides lakefront access to calm waters from our private dock. The playground is next to the fire pit for hours of outdoor enjoyment in our spacious backyard. We are unique with a level yard and quiet street making it a great place for families of all ages to play inside and out.

Our home has plenty of extras inside including a well-stocked kitchen with double appliances, game room with pool table and bar, two gas fireplaces, smart TVs, k-cup machine, drip coffee maker, crock-pot, ice makers, WIFI, and plenty of seating in the living/family room and dining room. Outside we have a hot tub, basketball hoop, large private dock, off street parking, upper deck, lower patio, gas grills, porch swing, playground, fire-pit, variety of seating, and absolutely beautiful lake views. We recently added 2 restaurant style child's highchairs along with a plastic set of plates and cups.

Bed layout: King, King, Queen, Full+single bunk, triple single bunk, Full (Murphy bed)
Utilities: Central air conditioning, central heat, ceiling fans, landline telephone, cable/internet, weekly trash pickup (twice a week all summer)

Fresh linens are included at no extra fee. Upon arrival all beds will be made and plush towels will be provided for each guest. Accurate guest counts are important to ensure correct supplies are provided. The driveway can easily hold 4-5 vehicles off the street. A boat trailer would count as a vehicle. Our private dock can hold 2 boats. Launch your boat at the nearby MD State Park boat launch. (4 miles away). Checkout the Oakland Farm Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays all summer.

We are renting our home directly to your family and we want to do everything possible to ensure you enjoy your stay. Any extra fees you pay are required by VRBO and not distributed to owners. Unlike most of the other properties in the area, we manage our own home and do not add resort fees, surcharges, admin fees, guest fees, or hot tub fees. Our home was previously managed with a local rental management company and we were not able to bring all of our great reviews over to VRBO when we discontinued their service. Please help us build our great reputation again by leaving us another great review here at VRBO. We have exterior security cameras that focus toward the trash bins along the street.

Our calendar is accurate and we make every effort to respond to inquiries within a few hours. Book today to ensure you can visit Deep Creek Lake, MD and make memories in our home “Absolutely Shore”.
