The house is beautiful and I loved the location it was very private. The staff was great and responded fast to all questions. It was stocked with everything we could have needed and more. Thank you for allowing our fur babies to share the experience with us. There was so much room and every coach had a bed inside wich really allowed us to spread out. So there are 4 bedrooms plus 4 couch beds! The only thing I did not enjoy was the water smell. However, with it being well water and on the lake there is nothing that can be done about that.

This was the perfect location for our family of four plus one dog. It’s at the end of a cove, so was very quiet with little boat traffic and the perfect spot to go kayaking. The house had everything we needed and was in great condition. Spacious and lots of natural light. We will definitely come back to Fancy Free for our next DCL vacation!

We had a good time inspite of 7 days of rain
- Timothy M. from Washington, DC, Posted: 07/18/2018
Three families (six adults, seven kids) fit comfortably in this lovely home. The home was as described and Taylor-Made did a fantastic job of responding to our inquiries and requests. We'd all highly recommend a stay here, especially the kids who asked if we can come back to this house every year.

We had a wonderful time at this location. There were some issues to deal with but nothing to dampen the stay there.

Everything was perfect. Location. Beautiful open floor plan. Amazing view of lake with access. Quiet neighborhood. Property description was spot on with location, layout, and amenities.
- MARIA S. from Bel Air, MD, Posted: 02/27/2018
Our stay at this rental was great. You practically need not bring anything but your clothes and yourself. The place was clean and we were able to utilize the sauna and hot tub ,and it was great on a rainy afternoon!
We had an issue with the hot tub, but someone came out a fixed it right away! Overall great experience.
- Brianna C. from Baltimore, MD, Posted: 01/03/2018
We had a wonderful stay at Fancy Free! The house had plenty to do for a snowed in cabin weekend. We particularly liked the multiple living spaces, the pool table, the hot tub, and definitely the big kitchen!!
- Greg L. from Windber, PA, Posted: 10/24/2017
The weather was Oct. The grandkids had a great time with a lot to do in the house and outside. PSU beat Mich. Couldn't ask for a better weekend. I would definetly recomend this house.
- Jason G. from Pittsburgh, PA, Posted: 10/10/2017
The location was quiet and private.
- Alexandra R. from Pittsburgh, PA, Posted: 08/30/2016
We had an amazing time. Wish we could have stayed longer. We were very excited to get pontoon boats for us all, but unfortunately the places were all out! We still had a great time.

It was great. Everything was right on with the pictures and descriptions. It is at the end of the lake, not a really busy part. This house has a dock close for you to use.

You will not be disappointed with Fancy Free II! Spacious, well equipped kitchen and lots of extras. What a great place!
- Stephen Q. from Alexandria, VA, Posted: 04/20/2016
Five families stayed here for a long weekend and the home was perfect. Large enough that no one felt cramped. The kitchen was very well stocked with anything you could want. The outdoor fire pit was a huge hit. Lovely property.

Great extended family get away...one that we will definitely consider again staying at next year!
- Anonymous from Gaithersburg, MD, Posted: 02/02/2016
The house is great. I recommend it highly for a nice, relaxing winter weekend. It may have been tough to get to in bad weather, but they keep the roads fairly clean. Once you're there, everything is good.

Had a great experience at Fancy Free for the weekend! Plenty of room and the house is gorgeous!
- Mark S. from Frisco, TX, Posted: 10/27/2015
This is a perfect house to get away from it all. It is secluded and in the woods is a perfect place to relax. Love the fire pit. The staff was great too.
- Mandy S. from Somerset, PA, Posted: 08/24/2015
We LOVED our visit at Fancy Free II. The house was roomy enough for everyone and we loved being at the end of the cove. It was perfect for the kids. We will definitely vacation at Fancy Free II again.
- Alex T. from Washington, DC, Posted: 05/19/2015
The experience was incredible. House was beautiful and couldn't believe how many amenities were included. Taylor-Made runs a first-rate operation and could not have made renting any easier.
- Liza W. from Washington, DC, Posted: 02/24/2015
Beautiful, spacious home great for a ski weekend. Everyone in our group was so impressed by the house!
- Anonymous from Washington, DC, Posted: 02/04/2015
The house was much more spacious than I expected after looking at photos on the Taylor-Made website. The kitchen was incredibly well stocked with utensils, plates, and glasses. We fit 16 people very comfortably. Everyone had a great time!
- Kim C. from Annapolis, MD, Posted: 02/03/2015
I needed a place for 12 people for a ski weekend and rented Fancy Free II. It was wonderful. Fully equipped kitchen with plenty of plates, glasses, etc for a large group. Comfortable beds and plenty of towels. House was clean and the setting beautiful. Simply could not have been better!
I think everyone had a great time. Thank, Bob Jones
- Bob J. from Dundee, OH, Posted: 01/10/2015
Rocky start-house not clean when we were told to go there after checking in at the office. The heat was very uneven-bedrooms freezing. extra table and chairs were very helpful. Kitchen well stocked with glasses, dishes and cooking equipment, etc."YOU COULD HAVE SUPPLIED BETTER WEATHER."

Beautiful home in a great location. We would come back. The only negative is that the docks come out in October and the home becomes creek front. Just something to note if you dont know much about deep creek lake. That said, the home is great. Plenty of room and lots of nice updates. The owners and rental company are great! Very easy booking process.
- Mark S. from Frisco, TX, Posted: 11/04/2014
This is a great place tucked away in the trees and on the water. I really like this place. The only problem is that the bog screen TV's are not in good shape.
- Dana M. from Washington, DC, Posted: 08/25/2014
Fancy Free II was a wonderful home for our large family for a week. We comfortably fit 14 people and all the in house activities kept us busy with some rainy weather to deal with. The kitchen was amazing for out big group!
- Angela H. from Silver Spring, MD, Posted: 08/18/2014
We had a fun week. The house was really nice. We enjoyed all the house had to offer, including the hot tub, pool table, movie selections and sauna.
- Leonard R. from Latrobe, PA, Posted: 08/14/2014
house is well equipped and near the lake. We also enjoy the fire pit for evening gatherings.
- Joanna W. from Salisbury, MD, Posted: 06/10/2014
The house was very clean and comfortable. My family enjoyed our vacation together at Fancy Free II and would definitely go again. Check in and check out was simple and easy. The kitchen was very well stocked and had every appliance that we needed. Bedding, towels and floors were very clean although the sofa in the living room could use a cleaning or replacement. Overall, I was very happy with our stay.
- Sharon S. from Saltsburg, PA, Posted: 04/23/2014
An excellent home for a great getaway with friends!
- Shauna M. from Venetia, PA, Posted: 02/25/2014
We recently stayed at Fancy Free II for a ski weekend with another family. The property was clean, and large enough for our two families. We enjoyed the hot tub after a long day on the slopes. Overall, the place was a fantasitic home, and we would recommend to anyone looking for a nice place to stay.
- Scott L. from Leesburg, VA, Posted: 01/22/2014
Had a great snow filled weekend at Fancy Free II over MLK weekend 2014. Mother Nature was kind enough to provide 6 inches of fresh snow, making conditions at Wisp great. 11 degrees was a bit chilly, but, once you got in the hot tub, that did not matter. Overall, house was in very good condition and being lake front, while better in the Summer, made for some great scenery, and seeing the eagle catching his breakfast in the cove was cool. Plenty of things to do at the house, from pool, to foosball, to poker to sauna and hot tub. Kids have space to spread out with three floors of entertaining space to go to. Would come back again

Everyone loved the Cabin, it was clean and very spacious. The kitchen was great and we loved the hot tub and sauna. Our only issue was that the water smelled a little funny, but overall it did not take away from our amazing time!
- Ann Marie O. from Bethesda, MD, Posted: 12/02/2013
We had a great time at Fancy Free II! The house was set up perfectly for all of us. Master on the main floor was very easy and convenient for the grandparents and the kids loved all of the game and play space.
- Prajwal B. from Pittsburgh, PA, Posted: 09/24/2013
Nice house, good fun
Recommend getting some landscaper to help redirect water drainage away from backyard. Gets very swampy.
Recommend either getting or updating water filtration system to reduce water smell issue. We used bottled water for all drinking water due to smell.
- Melinda F. from Catonsville, MD, Posted: 08/05/2013
Recommend a new dryer and wash machine. The dryer left clothes either too damp or insanely hot and shrunk several things. Wash machine left clothes too wet to try and hang dry.
- Carol J. from Neffs, PA, Posted: 07/30/2013
People were all very professional. Arrangements all done over internet with no problems at all. House was beautiful and location perfect on the lake. We had 16 family members, kids and adults, and all loved the house and the area and Wisp Mountain
- Justin T. from Snellville, GA, Posted: 07/24/2013
Our family had a fantastic time staying at Fancy Free II. When we arrived we were very surprised. We expected a nice place but FFII far exceeded our expectations. It was very clean, well stocked and spacious. If I had to make a recommendation it would be to clear trees leading to the lake to be able to truly be lakefront. Thanks for having us.
- Margaret M. from , , Posted: 07/22/2013
We loved this house! We had four families with a total of 16 people. We had plenty of space - great areas for adults to gather, as well as the kids. The house was very clean and well-equipped. We loved the access to the lake, and really loved having the dock/boat slip. My one suggestion would be to equip the bathrooms and/or bedrooms with hooks to hang towels. Overall, an excellent experience!

This property was a great rental for our family vacation with 8 adults and 6 children. It's situated on a beautiful, quiet spot--Heron Cove--on Deep Creek Lake. It was an excellent location for swimming, boating, and outdoor fun and yet not too far from services. Unfortunately, it rained for two days while we were there so we could not do as much as we had hoped. We also had spotty cell service due to storms during our stay. The property, however, is lovely and so comfortable. We liked the big comfortable couches and separate areas when we were stuck inside!
The kitchen was well stocked with glasses dishes and cooking utensils and cookware. We ate every meal in the house on the very large kitchen table. Room for everyone. Hot tub was a hit because of the cool weather in June. Boat ramp was such a convenience for our boat.
Our only complaint would be the outside furniture was very dirty. But not a problem for us to sweep clean. I highly recommend this property.
- Sharon F. from Jarrettsville, MD, Posted: 06/17/2013
We had an awesome week in this gorgeous home. We had ample space for 8 adults and 5 children.

4 families with kids rented the house and had a great time. The house has everything you need including towels and all kitchen stuff. Very clean, very well maintained. The only problem was very slow internet. We can recommend this property and Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations to everybody.
- Nancy R. from Baltimore, MD, Posted: 12/28/2012
It was so beautiful,my family enjoyed the snow.The home was a home away from home.The homeowners made it very comfortable.We even rented a xmas tree :-)
- Lisa V. from Fairmont, WV, Posted: 11/28/2012
absolutely perfect...the owners thought of everything...Taylormade was wonderful. ..super easy check in and out...
- Anonymous from Baltimore, MD, Posted: 10/09/2012
Fantastic weekend at Taylor-Made. Couldn't have asked for more.
- Tom B. from Hoboken, NJ, Posted: 10/02/2012
Everything was great. My only complaint was that the water from the sink, showers, toilets, etc. smells awful. If you were to compare it to rotten eggs, I'd say that it was an understatement.
- Anonymous from Moon Township, PA, Posted: 09/05/2012
The water after the dry summer was extremely shallow in the inlet. It made it difficult to get the boat into the dock and out. There were several minor maintenance issues (Loose handle, bulbs out type of thing) which we made Taylor-Made aware of. They had a maintenance person out quickly to attend to these. Unless someone reported these items they would have had no idea as to the problem. We would love to return someday. This house was 300% nicer than our previously rented location in Deep Creek. The two master suites are large enough to hold 3 bedrooms in each one! There were plenty of towels, kitchen appliances and dishware. More than our group of 12 would ever have dreamed of using! Games, Sauna, hot tub, movies. Oh and a total of 6 televisions! We parked 4 large trucks and two trailers easily in the large circular drive. This alone is a unique asset to this property! If you go watch for deer on the shore line at dusk, they are regular visitors easily seen from the deck.
- Jennifer M. from Catonsville, MD, Posted: 08/14/2012
Check in and out was very easy. This is the second time we stayed here - love the house and location. Did end up buying a dust pan as we could not find one, and needs a better broom for quick clean up. Great kitchen, well stocked with everything you could need. I would recommend a bigger dishwasher. I also would recommend more comfortable deck furniture - the wooden chaises could really use some cushions. Overall a great experience - thank you!
- Adam K. from Gibsonia, PA, Posted: 08/06/2012
The home is clean & tidy with a great hot tub out back. Our primary issue was that the kids like to swim and fish at our site, but the location was rather poor for clean swimming and requires a fair walk to get to a beach where it seems good to do so. The owners were very friendly and helpful in their recommendations. A nice queit spot for those wanting to enjoy the general outdoors, but probably not the best for active families.
There were several negatives about the house which will put us in search of another property: 3 of the bedrooms are located in the basement. It was damp and cold and smelled like a basement (needs a good dehumidifier). The house also needed a really good thorough cleaning and inventory check of broken items, missing cables and remotes. We were also disappointed to see waist high weeds, two decks that needed to be swept and bottles/broken glass on the property. The lot that the house is situated on is very wooded and though it is lakefront there is only minimal view of the water during the summer months. It is quiet, shaded and private (all positive), but we personally would want a little more of a water view next time around.

Deep Creek Lake is a wonderful place to vacation and we are looking forward to vacationing there again. Overall we liked the house and Taylor-Made was good to work with. The house had a nice layout for our three families, was well stocked (games, books, DVDs kitchen), and was located on a nice quiet cove with little wake and boat traffic.
- Greg W. from Leesburg, VA, Posted: 06/18/2012
We took a real chance on Fancy Free II. We had never been to Deep Creek for any length of time, and we didn't know the area very well. You could say we hit the jackpot. The house was perfect. Location on the lake was great. We loved it!
- John J. from Parkville, MD, Posted: 05/08/2012
Fancy Free II is a wonderful property that our group would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone! The amenities were abundant and the appointments were many: sauna, hot tub, TVs galore, pool tables, foosball, mammoth kitchen, fantastic location. You name it, this place has it. The only cloud - literally - that we had was the weather as we caught a few periods of rain. Even that was no problem with all of the nice things to do indoors. We will be coming back in 2013!
- Anonymous from Pittsburgh, PA, Posted: 03/13/2012
We truly loved our stay at Fancy Free II. Taylor-Made was great and easy to work with. We will definitely be back!
- James H. from Centreville, MD, Posted: 02/24/2012
We had a great weekend at the spacious Fancy Free II. It is a great house with plenty of room. Great for central gatherings or room enough that you can have some time alone. Kitchen is well stocked with the essentials and made eating on site very easy. We've stayed at a number of houses at DCL and would definitely consider this home again.
- Anonymous from Washington, DC, Posted: 01/24/2012
A bunch of friends rented the place for a ski weekend. We all had a blast! Thanks!
- Theresa C. from Aliquippa, PA, Posted: 01/04/2012
We have been spending new year's in Deep Creek for the past three years and have always had a great time. Taylor Made has always accommodated us well; we have been pleased with every property we've rented. A little more snow would have been nice, but we can't control the weather!! Always a fun get-away!
