Apple Cottage is a delightful vacation home that offers you an authentic log cabin experience! It has the feel of an old-fashioned mountain home, but don't let the rustic touches fool you - this cottage is equipped with lots of modern amenities to keep you comfortable. Plus, the convenient location is within less than two miles from a state park, marina, restaurants, nightlife and the movie theater.
You will be immediately charmed the moment you step onto the covered porch and open the adorable front door. Exposed beams, hardwood floors and a stone fireplace greet you upon entering the great room. It is easy to image cozy nights spent watching TV or playing board games by the firelight. This area doubles as a space for guests with a queen sleeper sofa.
Incorporating lots of unique features like a washtub converted to a sink, the home's kitchen allows you the ease of making your favorite home cooked meals. (Please note that the oven and dishwasher are not full size.) There is bar seating for four along with a table that seats three in the great room.
A bedroom with a queen bed and TV is ready and waiting when you need a little shut eye after a day filled with adventure. The second bedroom, with a double bed, is equally as welcoming. Both are furnished with a good night’s sleep in mind.
The covered porch at Apple Cottage provides a space for rain-or-shine rocking chair relaxation. A porch swing is an added bonus! Outfitted with a fire pit, picnic table and bubbling hot tub, the back yard is the perfect spot to spend lazy days soaking up summer sun or enjoying fall foliage.
Within a short walk, you will find Silver Tree Marine where you can rent a boat for on-the-water fun! Cruise miles of shoreline with stops to swim or fish in quiet coves. When you return to the dock, grab a bite at Dutch’s at Silver Tree. It is a local favorite with delicious crabcakes!
Deep Creek Lake State Park is about 1.5 miles away. You can experience everything from swimming and kayaking to fishing and paddleboarding. Park naturalists lead guided hikes through miles of scenic trails too. If you have little ones with you, be sure to stop at the Discovery Center. They have a variety of hands-on environmental displays along with an aviary.
With the best of the area at your fingertips, you can easily reach mini-golf, ice cream shops, antique stores and more. Wisp Resort is within a ten-minute drive. Their year-round adventures include skiing, golf, snow tubing, mountain biking, ice skating, disc golf, Segway tours and many other fun activities.
If you are in the mood to paddle, try a guided white water rafting tour on the man-made river at the Adventure Sports Center. Those who are seeking something a little more leisurely will enjoy a flatwater kayak trip with All Earth Eco Tours. They lead you along a pristine reservoir surrounded by breathtaking scenery and abundant wildlife.
Whether you are planning a couple’s getaway or a family retreat, Apple Cottage is the ideal spot to make your Deep Creek vacation memories.
