Spent Two days at black bear retreat for fishing trip with family. House is in great location to Deep Creek boat ramp. Home needs some TLC. But for a fishing trip it was great. Love the fire pit!

There were six of us on our stay and we found Black Bear Retreat to be the perfect size for our group. Although the property is not right on the lake it's a short drive to get there. There were ample grounds to play outdoor games. We enjoyed the hot tub and the fire pit. I was pleasantly surprised to find there were air conditioning window units on both the first and second floor. The property was clean when we arrived. I've been renting from Taylor Made for the last several years and their staff is always professional. I was a little puzzled by the parking restriction of three vehicles since the parking area was pretty large and additional vehicles could have easily fit. Overall, this has been my favorite rental to date and we are hoping to return to Black Bear Retreat again next year!

It was a cute charming place, perfect for the 6 of us that went. Totally enjoyable! Secluded, yet easily able to get to other places to enjoy. I definitely would recommend!

This rental was a last minute couples retreat rental and it was lovely. This rental was worth the money spent. It had just the right space for three couples. There were minor things that could've made it more comfortable such as the hot tub, the temperature of the water was not hot enough (100). But that wasn't a deal breaker. One thing that should be address is the driveway. I would recommend that maybe have it graveled or paved. It was so much mud from the recent snow. We kept tracking it from the car to the house. Our rental truck was a mess to say the least. I am just glad it wasn't my personal car. Also, the kitchen was semi stocked. It was missing a few key items that we normally have in past rentals. May need to do a checklist just to make sure everything is there for future guest. We was missing a mixing bowl, casserole dish, and containers. Again, that wasn't a deal breaker. We made due of what we had. We will definitely be back next year. Hopefully a bigger house with a little more amenities.

Clean, well stocked, nice house. Tucked away toward the end of a dead end road, so nice and quiet.

Good experience overall. The only negatives would be the lack of forks. If a large party were to stay there, they would need to bring plastic forks. Also, one of the grill's nobs (right side) was broken. So, I needed to use the left one on both sides, in order to balance out the grilling. Otherwise, we had a great time.
