Rich in Deep Creek history, this cottage was built as company housing for Deep Creek's Hydro Electric Dam workers in 1925. Featuring private Youghiogheny River frontage in the protected Wild and Scenic Corridor, this home is a completely unique Deep Creek Lake vacation rental.
Offering one-level-living, you will love the open floor plan that is perfect for spending time with your favorite people. Enjoy river views in the great room as you curl up on the sectional sofa to watch TV or a favorite DVD. Nicely updated, the kitchen has beautiful granite counters along with stainless steel appliances. You can make big breakfasts, delicious dinners and late-night snacks to satisfy any appetite. There is seating for four at the table and two at the breakfast bar.
Each of the two bedrooms is decorated with a good night's sleep in mind. You will love the river view bedroom that has doors that open to the deck. It is furnished with a queen bed, TV and DVD player. The second bedroom also has a queen bed and a TV.
The large deck makes it easy to enjoy the outdoors! Sip your coffee in the morning with the sounds of nature all around you and have afternoon barbecues while you soak up the sunshine. In the evening, toast marshmallows around the fire pit and then take a dip in the hot tub while listening to the river and stargazing.
Off-the-beaten-path, you are still within a five-minute drive to Wisp Resort, lake activities, restaurants and Fork Run's hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing.
Be sure to visit Deep Creek Lake State Park. They have a sandy beach with lifeguards, picnic areas, playgrounds and canoe and kayak rentals. You can also take the kids to the Discovery Center that is home to hands-on exhibits about the local, natural environment. Park staff often have great activities like guided hikes and tours of the aviary.
Want to stay at home? Just bring your fly rod, walk down your private access and in seconds you are knee deep in one of the best fishing spots in Maryland. Walk the river's hiking paths and observe Osprey, Bald Eagles, Heron and more. Infamous "Slide Rock" is on this property, which is the take-out for the class III and IV kayak run from Swallow Falls. You can also launch your flat water boats from "Slide Rock" and enjoy a relaxing 2.5 mile float to the Sang Run take out.
Perfect for couples and small families, Cross the River is a home that will make your Deep Creek Lake vacation truly unforgettable!
