Deep Creek Lake Community Spotlight: Deep Creek Village

Experience the best of every season when you stay at the Deep Creek Village townhome community.  Located at the northern end of the lake, it put a multitude of activities at your fingertips.

SUMMER
Be sure to bring your tennis racquet and bathing suite to take advantage of community amenities. The tennis court is a popular spot during the cool early morning hours. A community dock gives you a place to beat the heat or to cast your fishing line. Dock slips are available for rent too, so ask about reserving one when you plan your stay. That gives you the opportunity to rent a boat or use your own and head out for on-the-water-adventures. With Wisp Resort within walking distance, this is the place to stay if you never want to hear “I’m bored” from the kids in your group.  Their zipline, mountaincoaster, Segway tours, and disc golf course will keep everyone entertained.  Having two courses nearby, Lodestone and Fantasy Valley, will keep golfers happy.

Get the Best Price on Your Deep Creek Lake Vacation Rental

Best Price Taylor-Made Homes

When you’re searching for the perfect Deep Creek Lake vacation rental for your family, there are a variety of things you look at – Does it have the right number of bedrooms?  Is it in the location that you love best?  How many can it accommodate?  Of course, the most important criteria is the price of the home and if it is within your budget.

Recently, HomeAway, VRBO, and VacationRentals implemented a “traveler fee” to reservations booked through their websites.  It varies from 4%-10% of the total value of the booking (not to exceed $499).  When booking through these sites, you can review the fee by looking at “view details” of the booking section.

Why pay more for your vacation when you don’t have to?

We list our homes on these sites in order to give our properties maximum visibility.  In light of this recent change, we encourage you to make your reservations for Deep Creek Lake vacation homes directly through www.deepcreekvacations.com or call 1-866-351-1119.

We appreciate our guests and understand that vacations are an investment.  We always want you to get the best value when you choose one of our homes.
