We had a fantastic time! We rented a pontoon boat and pulled the kids around the lake on a tube, we went white water rafting at the Wisp, and hiked around Swallow Falls. The kids had a great time in the hot tubs and indoor pool. It was a wonderful and relaxing vacation!

26 of us came from various areas of the country to enjoy this "Kraus Family Vacay". It was wonderful to be able to stay in the same home and just be together as one whole unit. The home is just beautiful and view spectacular. Even when the weather didn't cooperate, we found enough to do to keep everyone happy. The indoor pool was worth its weight in gold!
- Andrea W. from Brandywine, MD, Posted: 04/04/2018
The house was perfect! No complaints.

It was definitely a pleasant stay and I will recommend it.

Had a wonderful time at this property. From the specialist to the maintenance crew, everyone was very polite and accommodating! Everyone in attendance enjoyed every inch of the property. We are are definitely looking forward to next trip.

My family and I were very satisfied with our stay at the Celebration house at Deep Creek. Already planning to come back next year.
- Carmen T. from Alexandria, VA, Posted: 09/06/2017
It was a peaceful week for our group of 23! We enjoyed boating, paddleboarding, fishing, the Discovery Center, Wisp and all those activities, and the local State Parks. The house was gorgeous and had all the amenities that we needed. Well, maybe a cake pan and good knives!
- Carol W. from Midlothian, VA, Posted: 07/31/2017
It's hard to make 25 people happy. But you did it. No one had a complaint. We had a ball . We went horseback riding, boating with the tubes, hiking kayaking, one of the great things was the two hot tubs after a day of hiking it felt good. The in door pool was a little to cold. It rained during the night days were beautiful. The house was clean had everything you would need Thanks for a wonderful vacation.
- Michelle Y. from Brownsville, PA, Posted: 07/10/2017
It was outstanding
- Natalie R. from Odenton, MD, Posted: 03/07/2017
My stay at the Celebration at Deep Creek was wonderful. The house was clean, the pool and hot tubs were clean and operable. The home was fully stocked, and in a great location. There were 14 of us with plenty space to spare. The staff at Taylor-Made were friendly, helpful and very professional. I would definitely stay again, and recommend this house to others. One recommendaction to owner (make sure all showers are in working condition), the shower in the basement was not working, and was a small inconvenience.
- David B. from Baltimore, MD, Posted: 01/31/2017
Great place to stay! House was very clean!
It was incredibly spacious and between the pool, hot tubs, lake, billiards table, and Foosball there was plenty to keep us entertained.
I would highly recommend the property and had a great experience.
- Roger D. from Washington, DC, Posted: 09/20/2016
I stayed at the property for a mid-September weekend with some close colleagues and friends from college and Celebration did not disappoint. The property was very clean and in great condition when we arrived.
- Dino D. from Pittsburgh, PA, Posted: 08/22/2016
Everything you want and need is at Deep Creek Lake. Celebration property is an excellent venue for large gatherings. All amenities were first class. Location perfect, close to The Arrow Market and gas station,theater across the road,Honi Honi around the corner with live entertainment,boating,golf at Load Stone, one of the best courses you'll play, with 8 miles of cart paths thru the mountains, 5 state parks within 20 miles, we hiked swallow falls. Dinner at Dutch's best filet you'll have. Perfect location, only 2.5 hours from Pittsburgh inner city. You won't be disappointed. Just CHILL !!!!!!
- Francis W. from Pittsburgh, PA, Posted: 08/15/2016
Very good experience with House and Taylor made. We appreciate the great weather.
The house was perfect. Plenty of bedroom and bathroom space for 21 people and the kitchen and living room area was large enough for us all to gather and eat together and talk together. This is important to our family. The house and grounds were very clean when we arrived and well maintained throughout the week. The staff maintained the pool and hot tubs throughout our stay.
This was the most equipped house we have rented. We brought some kitchen items that we have needed at other rentals and we never needed them. There was more than enough of kitchen equipment and dinnerware.
We rented a boat and paddle boards during our stay, which I would highly recommend for anyone. I had been warned about the boats and jet skis that fly by on the lake if the kids were swimming. This house is in a small inlet area off of the lake where very few boat owners slowly cruise to the lake area. It was perfect and safe for our grandchildren that loved swimming, but you still have the beautiful view of the lake front.
Between the lake and hiking our family was occupied with activities throughout the week. On the morning that we leaving 4 deer visited and we had the opportunity to view them from the back deck.
We will return to this location and if this house is available we will rent it again. Absolutely beautiful and these memories will last forever. Thank you to the owner and the rental company that manages this home.

Our 5 children, spouses and grandchildren (from 1 to 20)) gather every three years at a location for a week vacation. They come from the east, west and south. This year we chose Deep Creek MD. By far this was the best location and house we have selected.
- Janet M. from Bethel Park, PA, Posted: 06/01/2016
3 generations of family from 3 states had an enhanced experience due to the amenities offered at Celebration on the Lake. I would recommend this property. We loved the pool, sauna, hot tub and game tables. The grill was used. The kitchen and dining area were big enough for us! The only problem was that they only supply on roll of TP per bathroom so we had to make an unexpected run to the store our first night! (I think they should be more generous on the TP, little expense on their part and necessary for the stay!)
- jennifer p. from homestead, PA, Posted: 05/26/2016
We all had an amazing time, the property was gorgeous, even though it rained most of the weekend. We found plenty of things to do to keep us busy inside. Never had an issue with feeling over crowded. The pool, hot tub and sauna were amazing. We had a few minor issues and maintenance was there very quickly. You really don't need to take anything with you, everything is provided.
- Tamera B. from , , Posted: 03/02/2016
Celebration at Deep Creek is a huge, beautiful house! There was lots of space for the 8 couples that gathered together for the long weekend. There's lots of amenities to keep everyone busy.. From the nice, heated indoor pool to the pool table, larger televisions with Internet and cable! The dining area had more than enough space for our group to sit down and eat together. We had an awesome weekend! The only things I could possibly suggest to enhance the experience would be adding a Keurig and better cookware in the kitchen. The great room furniture was a little dated and there wasn't nearly sufficient seating for sitting around the fireplace and enjoying movies. However, even with that being said, we had an awesome stay at Celebration at Deep Creek and would definitely recommend to families or groups of friends!
- Stephen G. from Washington, DC, Posted: 02/24/2016
We had a group of around 15 adults, 30+ and between the pool, sauna, games, etc. I also left some personal items and the crew went out of their way to find them and send them back.
- Anonymous from Baltimore, MD, Posted: 02/23/2016
Everything turned out great!
The pool was a hugh hit especially with the kids.
The size of home and number of beds accomadated our family adequately.
- Anonymous from Dublin, OH, Posted: 01/04/2016
Overall was adequate. My only complaints would be, pots and pans were well used, the one dish washer cleaned marginally, the other dishwasher did not clean the dishes at all.
- Vance R. from Upper Marlboro, MD, Posted: 12/15/2015
Overall the experience at Deep Creek was great. The property was clean and maintained and all utilities (pool, hot tub, pool table, sauna, etc) were in perfect condition. Property was right on water and was very close to hiking as well as ski slopes (although this crazy December weather wasn't quite ready for snow).
- Anonymous from Louisville, KY, Posted: 11/30/2015
The house was great. There was a small electrical problem with the stove top the first night. The maintenance staff was very responsive and fixed the issue quickly. We had no other problems with it the rest of the week. The room layout, pool, hot tub, and kitchen were great for our group of 21.
Our only complaint would be that the dock is very hard to access, especially for elders who are a bit unsteady on their feet. And that there is no place to sit by the water if you cannot get to the dock.
Other than that I would wholeheartedly recommend Celebrations at Deep Creek.
- Barbara G. from Rockville, MD, Posted: 09/15/2015
Celebrations is an awesome home. It really has so many amenities that add to the experience of being at the lake. The property managers (Taylor Made) were very helpful, responsive and polite.
- James B. from Victor, NY, Posted: 08/03/2015
Loved the Celebration! We had 7 different families come together and everyone was happy with the week and wants to come back. That rarely happens! Lots of room for everyone! Great eating place where everyone can sit done together every day for dinner and then Euker all night. We never turned the tv on. Pool table was a big hit for the kids. The pool was great for the little kids only. Probably wouldn't need it in the summer.
- Anonymous from Chester, MD, Posted: 07/20/2015
The house was great for us. The cove it is in is secluded from all of the boat traffic and waves which was perfect for our kids.
- Anonymous from Manhattan Beach, CA, Posted: 07/15/2015
We had some amount of rain every day, but the house was perfect to keep everyone entertained. Indoor pool was a hit with the grand kids.
- Anne S. from Severna Park, MD, Posted: 05/28/2015
We had a wonderful stay at Celebration! Our crew descended from MD, PA, MO, and GA. The home was clean and well-furnished. It met all of the needs of folks aged 13-85. In fact, we are considering a return trip to the same location next year!
- Sandy O. from Pittsburgh, PA, Posted: 05/12/2015
There were 16 of us and the place was plenty big enough for all of us. The only complaint was the temperature of the water in the indoor pool. I asked for it to be turned up but not sure if anyone ever showed up.
- Kathy C. from Haymarket, VA, Posted: 01/20/2015
We had a great time. The house was fabulous , the ski resort and tubing was tons of fun for the kids and adult's. We had six family's 11 adults and 7 kids and it never felt crowded in the house. Great great time!!!
- Keshawna F. from Baltimore, MD, Posted: 12/04/2014
It was an excellent experience. The house was beautiful and we didn't have to leave the house for entertainment. Our house had a pool, jacuzzi,a pool table and a fuse ball table. The obit trouble we had was with the service and WiFi.
- pat m. from york, PA, Posted: 09/01/2014
all perfect with house nd property except the walk way to the dock...2 of my grandchildren fell on the branches and rocks leading to the dock....for such an awesome house I would imagine the walkway could be repaired and made safer to get to the dock...that is our only complaint
- Twana J. from Cleveland, OH, Posted: 08/18/2014
great trip!! think the home could use some updating
- Anonymous from Alexandrea, VA, Posted: 07/16/2014
Great experience. We had a few maintenance issues, whenever we called someone was out to fix them right away. The house was very spacious, great location. Everyone had a great time. Wonderful place for a reunion of friends!
- Duane G. from Monroville, PA, Posted: 06/17/2014
Everyone loved the house and the boat dock , Only thing I would of liked is if the indoor pool was warmer it was set on 82 we felt it was cold , they wanted a added fee to make it warmer . Besides that everything was great
- Edward H. from Centerville, VA, Posted: 05/20/2014
We had an awesome vacation. Thank you!
- Kenneth N. from Rome, NY, Posted: 04/23/2014
We had a family reunion to celebrate my mother's 95th birthday. The location and layout of the house is excellent and the amount of utensils, dishes, towels, dining space with chairs, etc - more than met our needs. The hot tub, sauna, and swimming pool were exactly the right ingredient to make the stay even more pleasurable for the grandkids. The house is in very good condition with only one or two minor fixes needed to make it perfect (i.e. one stove burner needed to be fixed and the sprayer in one of the kitchen sinks needs to be reinstalled into the sink since it is loose) - but the house is clean and was well cleaned upon our arrival. We enjoyed Celebration so much that we are considering coming back in 2015 for a reunion "replay".
- Ryan S. from Garden City, SC, Posted: 04/11/2014
Great place, great house and a great company from which to rent. The snow even cooperated for the Wisp's last weekend of the year.
- Anonymous from Alexandria, VA, Posted: 03/31/2014
Awesome weekend gateway for 15 friends to celebrate, party and just relax. Cabin was excellent and full of all the amenities we needed. We didn't have to leave if we didn't want to. Pool area was nice and sauna was relaxing. Kitchen and sitting area is huge and accomodated all of us to sit around and have a good time. The hot-tub was the best part! The bedrooms we also great! The setup of the house allowed everyone to have their own bedroom/bathroom and privacy whenever it was needed. Property was in a great location as well and the 24hr store down the street is awesome whenever you need to restock something. If we travel to this area again, we will definitely stay in the Celebration house again!!! a must-stay property!!
- Molly M. from Arlington, VA, Posted: 03/18/2014
The house was great. Amenities were working and clean. House was fully stocked with towels/kitchen appliances/bedding etc. Location was great, had a great weekend and hope to return soon. Thanks!!
- Rathetta H. from Clinton, MD, Posted: 02/19/2014
The home was very spacious and location was great. The only 2 things I would recommend to Taylor Management is to make it their business to go pass all of their winter properties prior to guest arriving and turn up the heat. It was freezing in the home upon arrival. Also the driveway had not been removed of the snow but once I contacted Management they responded quickly.
- Harold W. from Baltimore, MD, Posted: 02/05/2014
I must say that the property is absolutely amazing!!! My family had a great time and the location was perfect. Situated near shopping, food and the Wisp Resort. Check in was simple with digital door code which saves traveling to the office to pick up keys. We received a phone call before arrival letting us know that a knob had to be ordered for the stove which left a large burner unusable. Upon arrival, everything was in order and the house was well cleaned and maintained. The only problems were that the pool house had a defective pipe causing the heated room and pool not to work. We also lost the functioning of our gas fireplace, dining room table and a downstairs bath tub clogged. The staff was responsive and at the house for service immediately. Even though things could not be fully repaired, we appreciated their professionalism and the companies prompt service. I would definitely return but will check ahead of time to make sure all the amenities are working.
It did not really affect our great times with the place though.
I recommend this to any big groups of 18 or more as it has PLENTY of room to house everyone.
- Chan C. from McLean, VA, Posted: 02/04/2014
Celebrations was a great time, and it was everything we expected it to be. The location of the property was right off the main road which provided access to everything that was needed. The place was well kept with the exception of couple of things with the dining room table which had a huge warp in the middle, one of the stove tops not working, and the vacuum not working as well.
- Anonymous from Dunn Loring, VA, Posted: 01/11/2014
We had a great time at this property. A very spacious house w lots of things to do.
A general comment is that the carpeting is quite old and dirty looking. I don't think it was dirty but it looks like it needs to be replaced.
Another general comment is that the maintenance people responded very quickly.
The pool maintenance people were very friendly. The pool temperature when we arrived was 80 and the pool guy boosted it to 82 which was the maximum permitted by the owners. For 6 grandchildren under the age of 8 this was not really warm enough. There was a whole lot of shivering going on even though they were swimming actively!
- Emily D. from Harrisburg, PA, Posted: 01/05/2014
The only problem we experienced with this house was that the two top-level bedrooms and attached baths were VERY cold. The heat from the main level rose into the loft area but didn't extend into the bedrooms and baths. It would be nice if the owners would provide ceramic heaters in the future for these areas during winter rentals. I wonder if the reverse of this problem occurs during summer rentals and these areas are very hot? And to go along with this comment the two bedrooms on the main level were too hot even with the thermostat set at 67-68.
- Currie G. from Upper Marlboro, MD, Posted: 12/02/2013
My family and I enjoyed our stay. The house was amazing. Immediately we were chatting about our return and other family members would extend and invite to and possibly getting a second property next door. Only disappointing issue the sauna did not work other than that our stay was wonderful. The sentiment of everyone - all good things must come to and end when we left the property on Saturday.
- Anonymous from Saunderstown, RI, Posted: 09/07/2013
We had an amazing week at Celebration at Deep Creek. We (6 adults, 5 teens/children) celebrated my parents' 50th wedding anniversary there. The house was in great condition. The layout was perfect with two gathering areas....the adults socialized on the first floor while the kids/teens hung out downstairs. The views are beautiful, and we loved the location of the house on the lake. Close to restaurants, movies, ice cream shop, etc. The amenities are fabulous - indoor pool, sauna, hot tub, pool table, foosball, huge deck, spacious kitchen, flat TV's throughout the home, plenty of parking, etc. We enjoyed going to Wisp for some outdoor fun like Segway rides, canopy tours, and the mountain coaster. We rented a pontoon for the week and enjoyed time on the lake every day. Great to have your own private dock. The rental company was great to work with....they helped us get flowers for my parents into the home ahead of time, and had good suggestions for restaurants & things to do. We had a minor issue that was resolved within two hours with courtesy & professionalism. Overall, we all had a great week in this home. We hope to return to it in the future.
- Anonymous from Pittsburgh, PA, Posted: 08/28/2013
Very happy with Taylor Made Vacations - house is huge lots of room, clean and they do supply some of the amenities you need to get started - laundry soap,dish soap, paper towels, etc.... Only issue we had is when sitting on back deck every once in a while you get a odor of raw sewage.
- Ken G. from Long Beach, NY, Posted: 07/29/2013
Almost perfect, but outstanding none the less. This is a great house with some great amenities. The only negative I can give it is the fact that it is located near a septic field that occasionally gave out a nasty odor. Hopefully, the owners will address this issue with the county to get it fixed. Bottom line is we will be renting Celebrations again!
Negatives: Trash containers inadequate for this size house. Upon arrival containers were packed full and overflow in plastic bags was torn apart by animals. We had to store bagged trash in house until Monday pickup.
Lower level rooms were very damp, could use additional dehumidification.
Overall house was clean on our arrival with the exception of the kitchen floor. We purchased a sponge mop to clean the floor.
- Frank S. from Macungie, PA, Posted: 07/09/2013
Positives: Amenities (indoor pool, sauna, hot tub, well equipped kitchen), furnishings, location, staff at Taylor-Made.
- Anonymous from Baltimore, MD, Posted: 06/14/2013
from start to finish this house was packed with things to do. waking up watching sunrise over the lake, fishing on the dock, watching the families of duck, or sitting in the hot tub, sauna, swimming in the indoor pool, watching family movies together. I had a group of 20 ppl, mostly teenagers and everyone loved it! Thank you
- Makeda R. from Germantown, MD, Posted: 03/26/2013
Overall, our stay at Celebrations was wonderful! Property management sent maintenance everyday to treat the pool and the house was very clean and cozy. My only complaint is that a few of the dishes in the kitchen need to be replaced, as they are a little old and dirty. But, we were able to work around this issue by using aluminum foil. Thanks Taylor-Made for making our annual vacation memorable and fun!
