Very peaceful place, considering the Deep Creek Lake is full of power boats and jetskis. nature at its best! butterflies, hummingbirds, flowers, and water streams. Lots of birds, so bring your binoculars! The Cottage is next to the Youghegheny river. Its knee deep, some place waist deep, so it was perfect for the children. We stayed here twice in summer and both times had the river all to ourselves! Btw, the water rises a few times a week 1-2 Feet due to scheduled water releases, so it becomes perfect time for tubing and kayaking. Folks bring their water gear and go down the river during the water releases.
The cottage was comfortable for a small family and can fit a big family or even a group. The place is on 15 acre property, where you can just sit and relax or enjoy a nature walk.
There is a microbrewery restaurant 7 min drive, if you dont feel like cooking. The owners are super pleasant! Don will give you info on anything else you want to do in the area.
