"Rating5 out of 5

Glen Burnie, MD

This is the perfect spot for a romantic get-away, or simply a weekend to get away from it all. This cabin was just perfect for us, secluded, quiet, clean, beautiful. A completely wooden interior (floors, walls, ceiling) was warmed up with throw rugs, comfy furniture, and appropriate decorations. The owner greeted us and explained how things work (hot tub, etc), gave us directions to local attractions and was on her way. The little extras, such as extra-plush towels, books and magazines for reading material, and luxurious soaps made it all the more special. It was only minutes away from Deep Creek Lake, yet was tucked away in its own special corner of the world. I would highly recommend this vacation spot to anyone!

Perfect little cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5
The Bears Den is the perfect place to truly get away from it all. The trickling of water that meanders into the pond is such a soothing background, and the only "neighbor" we could see or hear was an industrious little bird on the other side of the pond who was busy arranging his bower. Other friendly birds would occasionally perch on the bushes near the back deck to watch us drink coffee or lounge in the hot tub. Inside, my husband and I had everything we needed -- a cozy sleeping loft (which overlooks the trickling spring), comfortable furnishings and all the pots, pans and utensils we could want to support our cooking and grilling endeavors. Laura was warm and welcoming and had provided a variety of menus, guides and printed directions to town so we could navigate the area. The photos and online descriptions did accurately depict the location and cabin, which was clean and well maintained. The upstairs linens -- faux-suede coverlets over soft chocolate-brown sheets -- reinforce the idea of snuggling down into a soft, comfy den. The trails up the mountain behind the cabin were easy to follow, and we passed several cool rock formations on the climb to the top. All in all, a wonderful cabin in magical surroundings that we already have recommended to friends!

We had a great time! We didn't have to bring anything but food and drink. It was just right for a romatic getaway. Secluded and peaceful. I would love to go back again.

We had an absolutely fantastic time at the Bear's Den. It was beautiful and peaceful. No one else around. We cannot wait to come back to it! The place was clean and tastefully decorated. Due to the location, make sure you double check that you have everything on your shopping list so you don't have to run into town as it takes away from the time you'll want to use for relaxing. Thank you so much! It was exactly what we were hoping for!!

An amazing, peaceful retreat!

This home is a dream! I have rented cabins throughout the eastern US and this one is now my favorite. The location is serene with abundant wildlife. The home itself is incredible. Comfy beds, quality linens, towels, etc.. The list of things to do is endless, without even getting in your car. Yet it is near many shops, arcades, restaurants, Deep Creek Lake, state parks, etc..The list goes on. We came to The Bears Den looking for some much needed quiet, alone time. Thanks to a major east coast snow storm, we got it. Enjoyed the selection of movies on hand and the large hot tub. Before leaving, the sun made an appearance and we even spent some quality time on the porch swing. Hated to leave, but looking forward to my next visit! And the next, and the next, etc..... Thank You!

Wonderful Christmas at the Bear's Den!!

Wonderful Christmas at the Bear's Den!!

The photos on the website do not do justice to the beauty of this setting. We arrived on a very snowy Christmas day and the cabin was warm and welcoming with the gas fireplace blazing and the hot tub heated. The cabin is very clean, cozy and well stocked with everything you need--fresh linens, towels, soaps, etc. But what makes the Bear's Den so exceptional (besides the extraordinary beauty and peacefulness of the location) are its owners, Rob and Laura. I have rented places in Deep Creek Lake before but have never known such gracious and accommodating owners as this couple. Laura checked on us Christmas night to make sure we had everything we needed. When she learned we did not have cell phone service, she contacted my family and friends to let them know we arrived safely! She checked in everyday and her husband made sure the roadways were plowed. Renters in their other cabin got stuck in the snow and they spent hours digging them out. Laura also followed us down the snowy roads to make sure we got to the Interstate safely. While Laura and Rob are accommodating, they were not intrusive and very respectful of our privacy. We loved our 4-day stay and will return there again. I highly recommend any of the cabin rentals offered by Laura & Rob (Cranesville Country Rentals).
