The only thing missing was a dock slip, and use of the Mountainside Community dock.
This was also our first time renting through Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations. The experience was great! They are professional, responsive, and their communications are thorough. I'm sure we'll be contacting Taylor-Made for all future rentals. Just be careful that you don't get locked out of their properties on the check-out date. The access code on the door changes before the check-out time.

We have been vacationing at DCL for 10+ years, and have stayed at 5 different properties. Boxer Overlook is the nicest yet. It is a very well maintained, well designed home. It's in a quiet community, yet close to all the DCL attractions and activities.
- Lindsay C. from Hagerstown, MD, Posted: 05/08/2018
The rental was wonderful. It was very accommodating for our group size. It was a very rainy weekend. However, having the hot tub and pull table, along with the view of the beautiful lake made all the difference. We will definitely rent with this property in the near future!

Our family of 12 spent Thanksgiving at the Boxer. We had a great time. The rental had everything we needed to be comfortable and entertained for the 4 days we were there. The hot tub and fireplace were nice

Perfect for multi-family, kid friendly, large deck, enjoyed indoor pool facility passes, close to main road.

Excellent home to stay in, especially for 6 adults and a dog... Not very much of a yard, if that is what one is looking for... driveway to the house very steep... No front yard except for a long flight of steps straight down to the house.

TaylorMade was great! The house was in great condition upon arrival. We had Comcast-related issues with the TV and internet, called TaylorMade, and they sent a Comcast representative within a few hours to fix the problem. Highly recommend this house and rental company!

Our stay was relaxing and extremely comfortable. Highly recommend

I planned a weekend getaway for a group of friends. Three couples and five single people. We had plenty of space to eat, sleep and have fun. Great location, close to grocery stores, close to an ATV and horseback riding place. The views were spectacular, the lake is right there! Though the weather sucked we but the hot tub and billiards table helped us pass the time. We will come back for the summer.
- Daniel G. from Pittsburgh, PA, Posted: 10/11/2016
We had an excellent time at Boxer Overlook this year. The open layout from the kitchen, through the family area, and dining room, is great for being together with everyone around the beautiful fireplace. Yet, when it is time to retire for the night, everyone can go to their own space with their own bathroom. Having the huge deck overlooking the lake is fantastic. Great place to enjoy beautiful fall weather. The house was extremely clean and prepared for our arrival. It is well stocked for cooking and we did plenty of that. We had one minor problem with a toilet and the maintenance staff was quick to respond and repair it. We have reserved the house again for 2017. It makes a great family getaway to relax and enjoy the moments.

Boxer overlook was a very peaceful getaway. The house has privacy from neighbors and is a walkaway from the lake.

WE ENJOYED OUR STAY AT BOXER OVERLOOK, THE WEATHER WAS A LITTLE COOL SO WE DID NOT SPEND A LOT OF TIME AT THE LAKE. THE GUYS WENT TO THE GUN RANGE AND FISHING. THE GIRLS SHOPPED AND WENT TO THE LAVENDER FARM. OUR LAST DAY WE DISCOVERED HERRINGTON STATE PARK, THERE BEACH WAS REALLY NICE AND WALKING TRAILS ARE OUTSTANDING.

My experience was pretty good. There were minimal problems and the staff was very helpful.

Rental value is fair. The house is smaller than it looks in the photos on the website. The basement, which has two bedrooms is damp/musty. There is very little parking, and the parking next to the house can be downright dangerous, especially when icy / snowing. Fixtures, appliances, paint, linens are dated. Location is great, view on the lake is fantastic, traditional fireplace is fully functional, pets are allowed, definitely feels like a log cabin. My family had a great time. I have rented many houses at Deep Creek through Taylor Made,and would characterize this house as one of the better values.
- Troy C. from Duncansville, PA, Posted: 12/22/2015
came with our two children who are still at home along with our two children who are married, daughter-in-laws and granddaughter. Total of 9 + 1 on the way. We had a great time at this home. It was a very comfortable property and felt like home. Driveway down to the main level is very steep and could be difficult in bad weather but only other option is parking in property's upper lot and taking 30 stairs down to the home which may be a challenge for some; however, we did not mind either of these options.
- Georgette C. from Windber, PA, Posted: 10/20/2015
The view was awesome. We all had a wonderful relaxing stay. Would highly recommend this property. We will be back!
Super nice place, clean and with great kitchen fully supplied with dishes, etc. Overall great place would recommend and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again and with Taylor-Made.
- Jim S. from McDonald, PA, Posted: 09/16/2015
Great staff in attitude and helpfulness.
- Barbara G. from Rockville, MD, Posted: 07/21/2015
Boxer's Overlook was the perfect spot for a reunion of good friends. 5 couples stayed comfortably in this 3 level home. The view is great, especially at sunrise. The house was well appointed. The beds are comfortable. The AC worked well. When we had a small problem, maintenance staff responded promptly.
- Margaret M. from Westminster, MD, Posted: 07/15/2015
Great location-seemed very secluded but close to everything. The kitchen was so well stocked with pans, pots, dishes and everything. One downside was the icemaker didn't work but we made do, but, with 12 people it would have helped to have it. Sleeping arrangements were great for our group and lots of games and it had a pool table and hot tub. The view from the back deck was really beautiful of the lake and trees and we even had a rainbow one night. Thanks for a great time and we will be back.
- Anonymous from Ijamsville, MD, Posted: 07/07/2015
Great house with plenty of space and amenities. Clean and well maintained with the exception that the hot tub wasn't working upon arrival but Taylor-Made sent a maintenance person out to fix it that afternoon and we were soaking that evening. Location is close to Deep Creek Park for beach and boat access as well as shops and restaurants. Parking in the driveway was fine in summer but would be difficult w/o 4 wheel drive in winter as it is steep. Muddy creek falls and Potomac State Forest were short drives and Laurel caverns in PA wasn't bad either. All in a great vacation and we'll definitely be back.
- Jessica M. from Mars, PA, Posted: 06/23/2015
B.O. is quite a nice location for a family to go. We had 4 different families so all the bedrooms worked out well for allowing everyone space but also allowing the kids to be in a quiet area for sleeping. The pool table, hot tub and jacuzzi were great! The kitchen was well stocked (waffle maker, crockpot, E-Skillet). The house was well maintained and is beautiful. Cons: Paint is chipping on the porch and the dehumidifier downstairs is VERY loud. The dishwasher isn't secured to the cabinets, the kitchen sink faucet is partially broken. The steep hillside would be problematic for someone out of shape or in inclement weather.
- Carmen V. from Hyattsville, MD, Posted: 01/14/2015
Easy check in and check out via phone call. No stress arrival due to keyless entry. The house was clean and spacious. Great view and location. We all loved it.
- Kevin M. from Easton, MD, Posted: 11/18/2014
There is nothing negative I can say about my experience. My entire family enjoyed the cabin and the surrounding community. Its a perfect place to have fun with the family and also just relax.
- Chad A. from Washington, DC, Posted: 11/17/2014
A group of friends and I convened here to celebrate my 30th birthday and the engagement of two of my other friends. Everyone was blown away by the views, the comfortable, well-appointed rooms, and the kitchen fully stocked with all the equipment we needed for hearty meals. A memorable, beautiful weekend. The Taylor-Made staff were very helpful and thoughtful--even leaving me a birthday card!
- Daniel G. from Pittsburgh, PA, Posted: 10/22/2014
Everything was great!! Booking the reservation was very easy, along with the payment and email communication. Boxer Overlook was perfect for our family. We had five adults, a 1 year old, and a Labrador dog. The house was very clean throughout. The kitchen is very well furnished with all the materials you need for making fantastic meals. Great little hot tub on the lower deck just outside the sliding glass doors from the finished basement. Many good games of pool each evening. The fireplace was great every night. It was a little misleading on the amount of wood we were told was provided. We like having great fires and at time of reservation we were told there were 5 - 6 pieces of wood per night. Because of that, we ordered a pick up load of wood from a local person. When we arrived at Boxer Overlook there was almost a cord of wood already there. Luckily, we were able to cancel the pick up load before he started out. Other than that minor issue, the experience was great, and we have already reserved again for 2015. Fantastic view of the lake from the deck. And even though there are homes on either side, it was very private. Would recommend it to anyone.
- Carole D. from Harrisburg, PA, Posted: 09/23/2014
Boxer Overlook is a fine house for the price. The main and upper levels are fine; the lower level furniture is minimal and the bunk bedroom lacks a closet. This is my third rental from Taylor Made and the company is awesome to work with. Love their electronic document system - so easy!
- Kim L. from Sterling, Va, Posted: 07/22/2014
We had a wonderful time. The location of the house was perfect and the house itself was very nice. The only issue we had is the gravel drive way. I myself took a tumble one day when my ankle rolled on the gravel. I really feel this should all be paved. Other than that it was a great time.
- Linda D. from Odenton, MD, Posted: 06/14/2014
This was our second rental for Boxer Overlook. The house is beautiful and we enjoyed our stay. The view from the deck is beautiful! My only complaint was the spider webs in the corner of the doors leading into the house,out to the deck, and on the deck. I think these were neglected when the house was readied for our stay. The steep driveway is getting to be a little much for my elderly parents and we are talking about staying on a more level site.Only other complaint was that we had lots of extra pillows but no extra pillow cases. All in all though our stay was great!
- Alaina E. from Columbia, MD, Posted: 05/15/2014
Making the registration was very easy. We had a great stay at the house and ejoyed the hot tub, the pool table and the gorgeous view. The check out process was very easy as well. The house was very clean and welcoming. We will definitely be back!
We were 6 adults plus 4 kids, there was plenty of room for everybody!
There is a nice pooltable and a nice hottub, but the best of all was the view from the balcony, where we prepared nice bbq every evening!
Highly recommended property!!!

We were staying for one week, we would like to have stayed longer!

Our group had a great weekend at this house. Our only issues were the icy driveway and check-out. Our cars had a lot of trouble getting out of the driveway because it was a sheet of ice, plus the stairs hadn't been shoveled or salted. On the last day, our access code to the house stopped working around 9 a.m., so we had to leave the door open a crack in order to get in/out while packing our cars.
- Anonymous from Centerville, VA, Posted: 01/06/2014
We really enjoyed staying in this house. The amenities are great and the views of the lake are beautiful! The only negative is the driveway (with the snow, it was very tricky to park). Overall, highly recommend!
- Jim M. from Alexandria, VA, Posted: 12/29/2013
Everything about the staff at Taylor-Made D C Vacations was beyond excellent. The only situation we ran into was an icy build-up on the driveway and steps. Other than that, Bravo!. I would definitely use you again and highly recommend your vacation group.
- Anonymous from Philadelphia, PA, Posted: 12/19/2013
My only suggestion would be for there to be better upkeep when it comes to plowing and salting. We arrived on a snowy day and my brother in law was unable to get his AWD up the very steep hill to get to the house. The road was not salted or plowed.
- Emily M. from Hyattsville, MD, Posted: 11/13/2013
We had a wonderful time in this beautiful home. It was spacious, clean and well-decorated and had all the amenities we needed. Thanks!
- Amy S. from Bulger, PA, Posted: 10/30/2013
The house was beautiful, clean and the entire weekend experience was wonderful. We had always stayed at the American Pride, which is another wonderful site. We were fine, however if someone would have issues with stairs, this is not the house for them, both inside and out lots of stairs. I have already recommended Taylor Made Vacations to my boss, who has never been to Deep Creek and plans on booking in the spring. Thank you as always - you are truly the best.
- Meghan H. from Glen Burnie, MD, Posted: 09/18/2013
the only thing that I did not care for was the steepness of the hill and parking area available. I wish we could have had maybe one more car and also it was hard getting in and out
- Nancy F. from Ashburn, VA, Posted: 08/29/2013
Great family get away. Nice house with a great view. Central to everything.
- Anonymous from Baltimore, MD, Posted: 08/18/2013
Great rental for my 12 person family. We enjoyed using the fire pit and hot tub. My favorite thing was sitting outside on the wrap around porch - what an amazing view of the lake! The kitchen was well stocked with all essential cooking items. Highly recommend!!!
- Lisa S. from White Plains, MD, Posted: 07/23/2013
We had a great time and the house was wonderful! The only thing I wish we had known - was how steep the driveway was. We had several family memebers who have back/knee issues and it was difficult for them to get in the house or into a car.

We've used Taylor-Made before, & will use them again. Used to rent from Railey & stumbled onto Taylor-Made. Happy I did.

This place is fully equipped and wonderful! The fireplace and hot tub were a real treat, and the house is roomy enough for all of the guests. The only two things I noticed that could be improved upon were that the pool table is not in great condition, and that the house floors and furniture had a lot of really long white dog hairs that stuck to everything.

Absolutely beautiful and the perfect size for a bunch of great friends who were looking for the perfect gey away weekend. Will definitely book this house again!
- Frank G. from Gulford, CT, Posted: 09/25/2012
Great location for WVU football weekends. House has great views, kitchen well stocked with glassware, etc. TV's in every room and lots of space to spread out. CONS; no gas grill, deck and some of its furniture need serious face-lift, a little loud on deck with hidden Rt 219 just below.
- Karen S. from Bunker Hill, WV, Posted: 09/07/2012
We were having a family gathering with our son and two daughters and our 8 grandsons. It was a wonderful experience.
All of the Taylor-Made folks that I dealt with were very easy to deal with, from reservation making through our stay. With out a doubt would use Tayor-Made again and will suggest to others!
The only minor items that would have made everything absolutely perfect, would have been if the decking on the house had been treated(some peeling on both back decks and front porch) and would have been nice to have had a working ice maker in the refrigerator.
- Curt N. from Marysville, PA, Posted: 08/07/2012
Very nice, spacious house and was very clean at check-in. All six of us really enjoyed the accomodations, location, view, and the area in general. This house was much larger than I had expected.
- Theresa D. from Jeannette, PA, Posted: 07/24/2012
We were able to do more things because of the savings on the rental.
First and foremost this property is a house, and it needs care and upkeep like any other house, but the property managers make it feel better than a hotel! They are awesome.
- Michelle D. from Penn Hills, PA, Posted: 07/10/2012
I loved it!
- Linda D. from Odenton, MD, Posted: 06/26/2012
Our only problems were the upstairs shower leaked into the kitchen ceiling and the coffee pot dripped all over when we made coffee. We called and maintenance came out right away and looked at the shower/ceiling. We opted not to use the shower instead of having workers in the house during the vacation. We bought a coffee pot which we left and were reimbursed for. My parents and children loved the vacation! The only thing I was not crazy about was the noise from the road below the trees...but it really was not too bad.
- Patrick B. from Middletown , MD, Posted: 05/30/2012
No trashcans were present. Also, needs house stereo for inside/outside audio.

I was surprised with all the pots, pans, and dishes that were at the rental. I brought some of mine with me thinking it was not going to be enough to cook for 8 adults, I was wrong. This was a great stay for myself and my friends. We plan on making this a yearly trip for the 4 couples.
- Amanda Michelle L. from Frederick, Maryland, Posted: 02/29/2012
We had a group of 14 friends stay at Boxer Overlook for a weekend away and the home was beautiful, the views were truly breathtaking, and the property management company couldn't have been better! They made the whole experience easy and fun for everyone! For most of us, it was our first time in Deep Creek, and we all fell in love! When we come back we will definitely use Taylor-Made!
- Tim C. from Centreville, VA, Posted: 02/14/2012

The only thing that could be done is to trim the trees and bushes in front of the deck so that you can see the lake. Property was very well equipped for cooking.
- Rita M. from Pittsburgh, PA, Posted: 08/05/2011
The house itself was beautiful. The parking was a challenge: unpaved, tight, upper spaces rquired many steps. View from deck obscured by trees. Ice maker not working but AC was great. With a little improvement would move from good to great!
