We will return again and again. So much to do and our rental was clean, beautiful, well supplied with kitchen equipment, comfortable, and on a quiet finger of the lake.

Spacious inside and out. There was something for everyone, from grandparents to 20 somethings and our elderly dog too. Beautifully landscaped with plenty of room to relax and get away from it all. Pleasantly surprised by the three fire rings, with plenty of wood, and lakeside picnic pavilion. Taylor Made once again was pleasant to deal with and when we had a concern were very quick to send someone out to resolve that problem. Also, the treat they left for our dog was, according to him, delicious.

This was our 3rd year staying in this home. We could tell the owner wants his guests to be comfortable in his home. The interior is stylish and comfortable. Every year we visited there were more improvements both inside and out. Our family highly recommends this home for your next vacation!

A wonderful winter getaway! The house was well equipped, attractive and clean.

It was nice but so short. Arrived Friday night and was glad someone had already turned on a lamp and some heat. WHole family was there by 10:30pm. Parking was the only downside to staying - so near the main road and had to pack in on top of each other. HOuse was well stocked with utensils and beds were very comfy. Loved the lake view, pool table and hot tub!

We had a wonderful time staying at Hiatus. The views from the house are beautiful and the house sits in a nice, quiet spot. Even though there were other houses fairly close, Hiatus felt secluded and peaceful. We would definitely stay there again.

Everything was wonderful from communication with TaylorMade to the incredible property. We couldn't be happier.
- Jean M. from Glen Mills, PA, Posted: 08/28/2017
We loved everything about the house. It is a great location right on the lake and also at an end quiet part of the lake. We could kayak without being knocked over by the wake of the boats and jet skis. The two separate living areas were great because my daughter has a four month old and could nurse the baby in a cozy quiet space. House is also well equipped. I would highly recommend a say at Hiatus!

This is the first time we've vacationed with the extended family to Deep Creek Lake and the consensus is that "we loved it". 4 adults, 4 teenagers, and 2 grandparents and there was something for everyone to do! Everyone agreed that it was one of our best vacations! The Hiatus was perfect for the entire family and being dog-friendly, made it that much better. The location of the home is in a very private setting and the location to the lake was perfect. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything needed to make meal time easy. We highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a lake get away and will consider renting again in the future!

We arrived at Hiatus our Taylor-Made Rental on Saturday July 29th. The house is even better than pictured. Beautiful location on the lake, lots of grassy yard for our dogs and everything to enjoy the week. Best stocked kitchen I've ever enjoyed and we rent often in Florida and previously at Deep Creek. Loved evenings at the fire pit and days hiking nearby or swimming and kayaking from our dock. One of our best vacations ever, plenty of space for our teen and twenty somethings in the lower level too. Planning to stay here again!
- Lindsay S. from Tierra Verde, Fl, Posted: 07/26/2017
We had a wonderful week at Deep Creek. The weather was perfect. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck and especially loved the quiet cove. A perfect spot for families with young ones! I wouldn't change a thing about our week here.
- Neal F. from Seaford, VA, Posted: 06/07/2017
This is our 3rd year at Hiatus. Very enjoyable stay, except for some cooler, cloudy weather during the week.
- Michael M. from Coraopolis, PA, Posted: 03/05/2017
This house had a great layout for multiple families to get together, with various living areas, plenty of space, numerous bathrooms and a great stocked kitchen. On the outside, you can't beat it - from the morning view of the lake to the back deck space and proximity to walk to the dock just downtown he hill. The only drawback was the tough angle/approach of the driveway off of the road, but once we were parked, we stayed put! Highly recommended.

We had an amazing stay! The property was beautiful, all of the appliances were in perfect working condition, the hot tub was amazing, and the view of the lake... priceless! We visited two casinos, ate dinner at Brenda's after checking out on Sunday (great food), and there was a nearby market that had a huge variety of groceries, wines, deli, and bakery items. We didn't need to do any shopping prior to the trip. We will be planning our family trip for next summer... can't wait!

The rental is right on the lake. We woke up to a stunning view every morning. Also, the company came out and cleaned out the hot tub for us after our first night there, which was much needed! The check in/check out process was very easy, and none of my guests had any complaints.
- Kara M. from Aldie, VA, Posted: 01/03/2017
The house was lovely. It was clean, cozy and overall a wonderful place to spend Christmas!

Long weekend with the family - chose this house because my 90 year old father didn't have to walk up any steps to get into the home and there was a first floor master for him. The house is terrific for all ages!
- Anonymous from Thurmont, MD, Posted: 10/21/2016
Great place for family vacation. Perfect setup to bring child gates to give a 14 month old tons of freedom to explore the main level and deck. Love all the varied seating areas inside & out so room to spread out. Very comfortable & great kitchen.
- Anonymous from Allison Park, PA, Posted: 09/13/2016
we've stayed at several very nice properties in the deep creek area, but this one was by far the best. Located on a quiet cove, the house was well suited for 4 couples. Furniture was comfortable and kitchen well-stocked to prepare snack/meals. Did have a slight problem with the hot tub but I called and it was repaired within 2 hours. One bedroom did have bunk beds, which was a little weird for adults. Already booked again for next year!

The house was great. It was in great shape and had many little extras. It was very comfortable and matched the rental description. The only issue was the WIFI was not strong enough through out the house.
- Judie S. from Selinsgrove, PA, Posted: 06/27/2016
Wonderful property and location. Could not have asked for anything to be done differently. The house was perfect ! Had a great week!
Also stay with Taylor Made...they are very helpful and accommodating.
- Jacqueline C. from Cochranton, PA, Posted: 06/13/2016
I was very impressed with the beauty and comfort of this home. It was almost as though the owner furnished it with the renters in mind. I would highly recommend it. My whole family loved it so much that we have already reserved it for next year. The location was perfect also. It is in a cove with calmer waters. My grandchildren were able to swim off the dock. The ducks came close enough that they were able to swim with them! There is even a little picnic pavilion right by the lake. We have rented at Deep Creek for several years and have definitely found the house for us!
- Katherine G. from Germantown, MD, Posted: 02/23/2016
Hiatus is a great home for the entire family. This trip was our annual ski weekend to Wisp and I would rent this home again! Great Kitchen & plenty of rooms and activities for the entire family.
This was our first experience with Taylor Made Vacations and we were thoroughly impressed with their customer service and attention to detail. We highly recommend Hiatus and Taylor Made!
- Ruth E. from Bel Air, MD, Posted: 10/30/2015
We have been vacationing at DCL for over a decade but this is the first time we have chosen to return to the same home next year. Hiatus had everything we needed in a lakefront home and more. It was exceptionally clean and well appointed. The location on the lake was convenient and we were able to bring our dog, which is important for our family. When we need a new sofa, my husband wants to get the same couch that Hiatus comfortable and they have foot rests, too! BONUS!

Beautiful home with a great layout! The kitchen is amazing and is stocked very well. Nice deck off kitchen with plenty of outdoor furniture. We could not of asked for better weather, it was beautiful. Spend time down on the dock, and having a pavilion right there was really nice. The walk back up was a little steep for me, but the youngins didn't seem to mind. It was so convenient having a grocery store only 5 miles away. I would definitely rent this home again.
- Kristen H. from Pittsburgh, PA, Posted: 07/20/2015
Good location - close to grocery store, yet in a remote cove. Nice house - only wish the bathrooms were in better condition and the house had a better view of the lake (tough to see much through the trees). We liked having a key code so we didn't have to check in or out with Taylor Made and could go straight to the house.
- Kimberly M. from Hunt Valley, MD, Posted: 07/03/2015
It was a beautiful vacation, and the house was wonderful. There was one maintenance issue-the basement shower door glass fell out when we opened it. So we just didn't use it.
- Neal F. from Seaford, VA, Posted: 06/29/2015
Stayed at Hiatus as a family getaway with grown kids coming from two directions. Wonderful location away from the noisy part of the lake. Thanks to good weather, we enjoyed floating on inner tubes and floats off the end of the dock. It has a nice porch to enjoy breakfast on in the morning. And a nice hot tub to enjoy in the evening. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

My family took a week-long vacation to Deep Creek Lake and stayed at the Hiatus property. We were looking for a house that would be comfortable for a family with 2 teen boys and Hiatus was perfect. The downstairs became their hang out with 2 bedrooms and baths as well as an entertainment area that included games, a large TV, a pool table and easy lake access. The upstairs was nicely laid out and the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to cook. The house was in great shape and very comfortable. The back yard sloped down to the lake. It offered great access to the water for canoeing and fishing. We were there in early April and many of the outdoor activities at Wisp (the mountain coaster and the zip line) were closed. We did enjoy the parks in the area including Swallow Falls State Park. I would recommend this property to anyone looking to enjoy a quiet time at the lake with plenty to keep everyone in the family entertained.

We wanted a break from the holiday hustle. This property was spacious, well-equipped and very comfortable. Perfect to just get away and relax--and we could bring the dog!
- Anonymous from Edgewater, Md, Posted: 12/30/2014
This was the best house we've stayed in so far! The owners really keep the house stocked with the essentials. Thank you for sharing your home and we will be back next year!!
the Hiatus is a quiet, relaxing setting on Deep creek lake and enjoyed the fireplace in the evenings. We did some hiking at Swallow Falls, on the trails through the huge Hemlocks. The ladies enjoyed the shops around the area as well as some quaint coffee stops. The Fall foliage had just started to turn, and I am sure the peak season will be beautiful.
- Paul G. from Sullsburry, MD, Posted: 10/08/2014
Paul G from Salisbury, MD. Wonderful get-a-way week end. The Haitus home on the lake front met our expectations, and the pictures and description were accurate. Very clean and the service from Taylor-Made was more than expected. We were greeted by a Taylor employee shortly after arriving, and upon leaving discovered we had a dead battery in the car from some lights inadvertently left on. Taylor sent a man out to jump start our battery. Many thanks for the extra service.
- Chris Z. from Delta, Pa, Posted: 09/24/2014
We had a great time the lake access was a big hit. We fished and my son went kayaking all day. The fire down by the lake was great at night . We enjoyed the geese and ducks. The house was very acomadating.

Nice place, has everything you need except food, drinks and friends to have a good time. Driveway can be tricky in the winter and the property is a little steep down to the water.
- Linda B. from Fairfax, VA, Posted: 01/27/2014
Wonderful experience for our first winter visit. The covered carport in front was a nice surprise, and very well stocked with firewood. The house seemed very new on the inside. Also our first time in a dog-friendly house and I was a bit worried it might have a doggie odor and/or evidence of doggie misbehavior, but absolutely none. We had a minor issue with the sheets on two beds but the nice folks at Taylor Made responded quickly. This house wouldn't be our choice in the summer, as it's a fair hike up to the house from the dock, but lovely to look at in the winter and extremely private. We hope to return.
This was the first time we rented from Taylor-Made. The staff were nice, professional and extremely helpful when selecting the property and then planning activities. We were so pleased and will definitely rent from them again.

Our family came from MD, MA and FL with high expectations, and this home - Hiatus - delivered. The house was very clean, spacious with tons of amenities including a chef's kitchen (with matching dinnerware, all possible utensils, and appliances), a pool table, hot tub, outdoor fire pit for guitar playing/s'mores-making campfires and private dock to launch kayaks, paddleboards and kids into the water. Plenty of private space for adults and separate play area for the children. We are a biking family and were perfectly situated along several nice rolling hill routes around the lake, within the parks and a short ride to the activities at Wisp Resort. Perhaps the only negative comment was from the oldest member of our group who found the long stone path between the dock and the house steep and unstable.
- Anonymous from Cockeysville, MD, Posted: 08/20/2013
We had a great time. The house was just what we needed. The only complaint is that we had a terrible night's sleep in one of the bedrooms. When we checked the mattress the following morning, it was a pillow top mattress that was pillow-top side down and it was not a mattress that can be flipped. Essentially we were sleeping on the springs all night. Loved the free movie rentals. Everyone at the office was very friendly. Love that you don't have to go the office to check in or out. Very efficient. Reservation process was equally efficient. Will definitely use Taylor-Made for our next stay!
- Gary M. from Bethesda, MD, Posted: 08/08/2013

The location is great, secluded and peaceful. The amenities at the house exceeded expectation, virtually everything was provided and top quality. Would definitely recommend this property.

The Hiatus was truly amazing. Beautiful place, great location on Cherry Creek Cove portion of Deep Creek Lake. House and amenities in top notch condition. Had one issue with the freezer downstairs, called taylor-made and a serviceman was there within 30 minutes to fix the issue. We were there for a one week family vacation in the early part of the summer and loved it. I can see how it may be difficult to navigate the driveways in this part of the lake when roads are icy, but this was obviously not a summer-time problem at all. Would ABSOLUTELY recommend this rental without reservation for summertime travelers, wintertime travelers might need 4WD depending on conditions.
- Janet M. from Pittsburg, PA, Posted: 05/29/2013
We loved the house and the private location on a quiet cove. Great for canoeing, kayaking, speed boating right at the property and it was close to town.
- Anita K. from Baltimore, MD, Posted: 04/09/2013
We had never been to Deep Creek. Angie with Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations was so helpful in choosing a place for our family. We made all meals at the home and basically celebrated exactly how we were hoping the weekend would go. We were in between seasons- when arrived lake had ice, family went snow shoeing and by Sunday, lake was melted and we enjoyed the hot tub!!! The home was beautifully appointed and really recommend this home and area for a family getaway. They even had balloons and a birthday card for my husband. How sweet is that???
- Christopher J. from Upper Marlboro, MD, Posted: 02/20/2013
Great rental spot!!! Great amenities, layout, and location. Cant wait to come back again next year.
- Michael D. from Amissville, VA, Posted: 01/23/2013
The vacation was very nice. The only issue we found was the shower door in the master bathroom is broken and door will not open. The bathrooms should be updated and remodeled but the rest of the house if very nice.
- aretha s. from baltimore, MD, Posted: 01/04/2013
for the very first time i was a little disppointed with the house i selected.loved the surround sound but the tv in the basement volume out sounded the upstairs tv.the house didn't feel homie to me it was kind of cold and i didn't feel somewhat welcome.the masterbeds were small,over all this place was much differnent from the other 10+ properties we have ever stayed at with taylor made. maybe if the owners would put up some personal pictures or a little touch of them in the house to make a guest feel like they are away from home but home. one thing i can stay the kitchen was great everything match ours at home this house had stainless steel ours is just all black. we love the outdoors so wish we could have used the outdoor pit that would have been something different. maybe after we have stayed at the of the others properties if this on is still around we will give it another chance.
