Impressed at every turn
We rent in the Deep Creek area often, though this was the first time renting a Taylor-Made vacation property. Over the years we had come to accept & expect certain things about rental homes (not just in Deep Creek, but in general) - namely, spotty/impersonal customer service, uncomfortable & mismatched furnishings, dull/missing/poorly maintained knives, utensils and appliances - etc. Our experience with Taylor-Made Vacations, and specifically at Brief Respite was quite the opposite - a pleasant surprise in every meaningful way. The booking process was simple, transparent, and efficient. When I called with a few 'baby gear' questions after reserving our rental online, the staff was helpful, specific and friendly. The 'free weeknight' special was a great complement as well, and when I inquired about it (expecting to hear all the reasons our booking wasn't eligible) instead they happily updated our booking to add another free night in a 3 minute phone conversation (you do have to pay for the taxes for the extra night, FYI, but it was still a great value). The check in, maintenance, and departure instructions were clear & smooth. The house itself was clean, comfortable and welcoming. The bedrooms are generously sized, the bathrooms were luxurious, and the layout flows well for a group with enough common space and enough privacy as well - we had 6 adults and 4 little ones (9y, 5y, 18mo and 3mo) with us and it never felt condensed or disjointed even when people were engaged in different activities (i.e. crafting, watching a hockey game, playing a board game, & cooking). Having two master suites was also a huge plus. Babies napped & slept in quiet while adults and bigger kids stayed up and entertained themselves without having to be all hush-hush about it. The sound boundaries within the house were better than expected, though I will note the downstairs master is under the kitchen so you can hear the steps above you. The outdoor amenities (decks, fire pit, hot tub, etc) are all high quality, thoughtfully placed, and well maintained. They could use a couple more chairs at the fire pit, but the setting is serene and we found ourselves gathered out there almost every night of our stay. The views even from within the house are amazing - the pictures cannot even do justice. The walk down to the dock is beautiful, but can be slippery after some rain (though it dried quickly). It was even nice being down a little private road that we could take walks up and down without worries of traffic (and the perfect distance for our little ones' legs!) We did call Taylor-Made a couple of times during our stay for some assistance with the hot tub and gas fireplace and in both occasions they were pleasant and helpful, with a lovely maintenance technician arriving within an hour or two in each case. The hot tub issue was fixed promptly and it was only a small issue (temp wouldn't go above 99 and some hot-tub-enthusiasts in the group insisted on 104) - and while they were not able to get the gas fireplace downstairs working, they spent quite a bit of time trying to locate a chimney company that could come and pick up where they had left off. This is great customer service in my book - even if you can't resolve everything, the effort, attitude and experience matters a lot. However, none of these things are what led me to want to title this review "Ruined for Life." (I decided against it so as not to cause confusion, but it was a strong contender). Because while all of these aspects of our experience were delightful, what has really changed my expectations regarding vacation rentals irrevocably were all the many, many thoughtful extras at Brief Respite. The couches and beds are actually comfortable. The lamps match. The chairs match and aren't wobbly. There are plenty of places to sit. Plenty of counter space. Easy for more than 1 person to be in the kitchen at a time. There are ample utensils, kitchen gadgets, dinner & drink ware, tupperwares for leftovers, etc. They even had decent wine glasses as opposed to those small restaurant style ones which I personally detest. The movies and games they supply are actually ones you want to watch and play. The puzzles (except 1) have all their pieces and the one that doesn't is labeled accordingly. The TVs are all newer models and the remotes are labeled for what functions they control. There are drink coasters. There are wood fireplace tools including a wood carrier and bellow. Kitchen rags. Toilet paper. Paper towels. Dishsoap and dishwasher pods (they lasted us all 4 days!!) and hotel-style shampoo/conditioner in each bathroom which was especially a relief as I forgot mine. The list goes on and I never had realized before how much those little touches make a big, big difference. I don't know which kudos should go to the owners and which kudos should go to Taylor-Made, but the thoughtfulness in this home has raised the bar on what a vacation property should be has just been raised, at least for me. Thank you for the great hospitality and looking forward to returning soon.
Thanks so much! It is truly wonderful to hear how much you enjoyed Brief Respite and that you were so happy with our service. We always try to remedy any issues quickly so that you can have a carefree experience. Your feedback is much appreciated and will be shared with our team. See you next time!

Cute house! Definitely able to spread 8 people put comfortably! The view was amazing! The house had everything we needed from seating to all things in kitchen to make meals! First time being in Deep Creek and would come back again! Booking through Taylor made was also easy and stress free!

Beautiful Home and Location
Great home and layout which accommodated our large family of 8 (4 adults, 4 small children) perfectly. Enjoyed the snowy weather, sledding outside, and warming up in front of 1 of 3 fireplaces and an outdoor hot tub. The only downside was flaky wifi performance which could be easily improved with better wireless router placement/installation.
Thank you for submitting this review of your recent stay, your feedback is very valuable to us. We are happy to hear you had a wonderful time here at the lake and have mad a note to pass along about the wifi. Sometimes the signal in our area gets very weak.
Please come see us again soon

Even Better the Second Time
We had previously stayed at Brief Respite back in 2014 and really enjoyed our time there, so we didn't bother to shop around when looking to book another trip to Deep Creek Lake. We were impressed that Brief Respite is actually nicer now than it was 6 years ago. There has definitely been some remodeling, new furniture and new appliances/electronics over the past few years. The property still feels very peaceful and secluded. There is something for everyone in this house, whether it's s'mores over the fire, a dip in the hot tub, a rousing game of air hockey, or just relaxing in the recliner. I'm hoping to go back again, sooner than 6 years from now.
Thanks, Robert! We are so happy that you came back to Brief Respite! We hope that you come stay with us again!- Robert , Posted: 10/13/2020
Wonderful stay at the lake for our extended family! Your home is so nice - so many thoughtful touches! We swam in the lake everday - soaked in the hot tub - had cookouts at the fire ring - played golf and mini golf - rode go-carts - went horseback riding and even found time to relax! We'd love to come back!- Anonymous , Posted: 07/25/2020

Awesome time at the lake. Everyday on the water - kayak, paddleboards, tubing, boat rides! The weather was perfect and it only rained 1 night. The house was very comfortable for extended family to get together. Already planning for 2021!- Anonymous , Posted: 07/18/2020

Wonderful Weekend Getaway
Brief Respite is a beautiful property. Decor and views are even prettier than the pictures. House is really well appointed, kitchen is nicely organized and has everything you need. We were three families and our teenage kids and had plenty of room to spread out.
Thank you for the review! It is wonderful to hear that you had such a good time. We appreciate your feedback and hope to see you again.

Brief Respite was just what we needed for our 10th anniversary! The house is like home (but so much quieter!). I thoroughly enjoyed the quiet and the birds and the company!- Anonymous , Posted: 05/17/2020

Great Place for a Large Family
We had a great time at Brief Respite. With ages ranging from 2 to 77, the house met the needs of everyone. The kitchen was large enough to cook complete meals for 11 and the kitchen table was great for eating all together. We loved the game room downstairs. We tried to use the hot tub but it never warmed up sufficiently. Having 2 levels meant we could split up at times and then hang out all together as well. The deck would be great in warmer weather and the view of the trees and the lake was gorgeous with fresh snow and ice covering all of the trees. Everyone was thrilled with the house and we would love to return someday.
Thanks, Deborah! So happy that you enjoyed your stay! The owner actually purchased a new hot tub and it will be installed this week! Hope you come see us again!- Deborah , Posted: 01/01/2020
