traveler reviews for this deep creek lake house rental

Lifes a Bear hideaway.

Review submitted: November 3, 2013   Date of arrival: October 14, 2013

We stayed at this home, Lifes a Bear Hideaway as an escape from hotels when we came to work in West Virginia.Its about 40 minutes to WV, with a beautiful drive through the mountains. Its a beautiful home and everything was as described or better when we got there. We had 7 of us there and there was plenty of room for us all to have a little of our own space. The hot tub was a great feature.The weather was pretty cold while we were here , so after a hard days work it was nice to come back and get in the hot tub, relax, and keep warm while enjoying the outside. We would love to stay here again. Hopefully next time it will be in the summertime. Karen was right on top of things in getting back to us on our request to stay. I didnt give her much time since I only found the home 3 days before our departure. She pushed everything through and was great. Thanks Karen. Hope to get the chance to stay in your home again.

Great place to stay

Review submitted: August 14, 2013   Date of arrival: August 3, 2013

This was a great place to stay. The place is bigger than it looks, and very clean. My family and me enjoyed it very much,and if a country setting is what you want then you want this place. It will be the first place we look at when we go back to Deep Creek.

Name fits house, saw a momma bear and cub three nights

Review submitted: June 25, 2013   Date of arrival: June 12, 2013

House was great. Very clean.

Name fits house, saw a momma bear and cub three nights. That cute little bear cub could get in garbage can and throw trash out, even with turning can backwards in wooded container.

House was on dead end road, so it was very quiet and peaceful.

Close to Funland (better arcade), Smiley's (better rides) and the Wisp Ski Lift Roller Coaster.
