1. How do I make a Reservation?
First, check the Availability
Calendar to make sure that the house is available on the dates you would like
to reserve. Next, use the Reservation
Request form to notify us that you would like us to reserve the house. After
we receive your request, we will send you a rental agreement that indicates
the total costs. After you sign and return the rental agreement then we will
block out those dates on the Availability Calendar.
2. Will I need a four wheel drive vehicle?
A four wheel drive vehicle is highly recommended
during the snow season (November through March) when visiting the Deep
Creek Lake area. The drive way to the house is a little bit steep but
constructed of asphalt and gravel to maximize traction. It is plowed
for snow regularly by a local contractor.
3. Is the boat dock available year round?
No. The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) require that the
dock be removed from the lake from December 1 through April 1. The dock
will be pulled out sometime in November and put back sometime in April.
4. How far away is the boat dock?
The boat dock is located about 120 feet directly in front of
the house. To access the dock you will need to walk down the driveway and
cross Garrett Highway.
5. What do I need to bring?
You will need to bring linens (bed sheets, pillow
cases, bath towels, hand towels, kitchen towels, and wash cloths),
bath toiletries, detergents, and
kindling for starting fires in the wood burning fire place. A limited
quantity of disposable products such as toilet paper, garbage bags,
paper towels are supplied to make it through your first day. There are
several grocery stores in the area for purchasing these items, or you
may want to plan ahead and bring them with you.
6. Why is there an extra charge for Linens?
A quality linen service to accommodate ten guests adds a
significant cost and are sometimes unreliable. We want to provide a worry free
and affordable place to stay for our guests, whether they are a family of four
staying an extended weekend, or a party of ten staying an entire week.
8. What do I do with the trash?
The trash should always be bagged and placed in the
animal proof bin. This bin should remain by the street (at the end of
the driveway) at all times.
9. Are pets allowed?
Yes, pets are allowed for an additional fee. You must
clean up after your pet in the house and in the yard. Do not leave
your pet unattended while you are away. Extra cleaning fees may be
held from your security deposit if there is excessive hair in the
house, or if your pet soils the carpeting, bedding, or furniture.
