About the neighbourhood
The home is located in a neighborhood of single family homes on large lots with many trees and on a peninsula near the main portion of the Deep Creek Lake. It sits on a hill with a good wintertime view of the lake (when trees are not in leaf). It is very close to Deep Creek Lake State Park and not far from Swallow Falls, Harrington Manor, and New Germany State Parks and the beautiful and rugged Savage River State Forest. This area is a year round resort with boating, swimming, fishing, skiing (downhill and cross country), hiking, trail riding, horseback riding, and just relaxing. The Wisp Resort, with its ski center, and adventure center with man-made whitewater course is closeby.
Getting around
No public transit is available. Our website has suggestions about what to do while at Deep Creek, but a private vehicle is necessary. We are very close to Deep Creek Lake State Park, for boat launching, beach, picnic & play area, Discovery Center, and hiking trails.
