The perfect family gathering spot!
A FAMILY REUNION TO REMEMBER
There was plenty of room for us to dine together, inside or out, play games, shoot some pool, or watch a movie, as well as spots for smaller groups. The beds were comfortable. And what a joy to be on the water, so convenient for a swim or boating.
While there was plenty to keep us occupied without leaving the property, we did enjoy some hiking in nearby parks, a tour of Falling Waters, river rafting on the Youghiogheny River and a super 80th birthday dinner at a nearby restaurant.
The owner was so helpful in providing suggestions. I would highly recommend this property to anyone.
Note to possible guests : Downstairs rental, which includes pool table, is optional and an additional fee. If interested please contact me. Thanks.
Perfect extended family vacation spot!
A beautiful, comfortable retreat!
A group of 7 of us used the lodge as a home base for our "Moms Retreat" weekend - we couldn't have had a more relaxing enjoyable weekend! The lodge is HUGE - we only used a fraction of the space, and all easily had plenty of personal space to retreat to (including our own rooms), and there were plenty of bathrooms to go around. The property is secluded & gorgeous. The facility itself is extremely well maintained & comfortable, and the owners were extremely gracious in their communication/hospitality leading up to the trip. We spent quite a bit of time in the common space just chatting around the fire, but also took full advantage of the hot tub on the back deck (amid a beautiful scene of softly falling snowflakes). A few of us also ventured into town for a "spa afternoon", while others took advantage of the hiking trails in the area. We all agreed that we wished we could have stayed longer!
From the Owner
“We love the ruralness of the DCL area and just sitting by the lake and enjoying the quiet. Six acres provides a good bit of privacy, but we also like the restaurants and activities a resort area provides.We have a large family and a larger extended family, it is nice to accommodate our family comfortably. When we purchased the house we knew it would be a rewarding and challenging project to convert it from a commercial property to a home. We plan and do most of the improvements ourselves and it has been a great experience. There is still much to be done and every year our returning guests find a new project finished.”

For many visitors to Deep Creek Lake, the fall offers a world of spectacular fall colors as the trees display their own 'Autumn Glory'. The lake area is beautiful and peaceful this time of year as the summer winds down. While you can still continue to power boat and sail into the fall, the autumn air is crisp so dress warmly-and is there a better way to view the fall foliage than by water? We don't think so. The fishing can also be fantastic this time of year as the fish stock up on forage for the approaching winter.
Autumn Glory Festival is a most anticipated event at Deep Creek for Fall visitors. The annual Autumn Glory Festival is held in mid-October in nearby Oakland, Maryland. For three days the town hosts many great events such as sthe Maryland State Banjo and Fiddle Championships, parades, Oktoberfests, pancake breakfasts, arts and crafts, antiques, a wide variety of foods, and more. Be sure to book The Lodge at Sawmill Hollow early as this is one of the most popular weekends all year!
Exploring the Trails by horseback is a relaxing but exciting way to spend an autumn day. Hayrides, carriage rides as well as overnight pack trips are also available. With 74,000 acres of state forests, hiking and mountain biking are a great way to see this amazing area and the beautiful fall scenery.
Deep Creek Lake and nearby Oakland host many festivals throughout the year. Check out local activities at www.wispresort.com or www.visitdeepcreek.com or look for additional sites via google etc.
Looking for a day trip? Frank Lloyd Wright's 'Falling Waters' is approximatel 50 minutes from the Lodge and just a wonderful trip.
