Fully enjoy lake life living.  Idylwood is centrally located within 5 to 10 minutes of all the major shopping and dining spots around Deep Creek.
If your idea of a perfect vacation is watching the beautiful lake from a set of large sun-filled decks, Idylwood is your place.  With spectacular views of both the sunrise and sunset from all the rooms and porches, you will love your time at Idylwood.
In the fall, come see the amazing foliage as you enjoy Indian Summer days!  Come see the amazing colors, hike the forests and waterfalls, and take a boat out around the lake. 
Idylwood is located at the mouth of Cherry Creek Cove, the perfect place to see the widest part of the lake and surrounding mountains.  Idylwood has a dedicated boat dock down the back stairs and to the left about 5 houses.  Rent a boat or bring your own and store it at our slip.
Nothing is better than eating on the water, especially in the fall.  Make a quick run across the water to grab an ice cream from Lakeside Creamery or pick-up Brenda’s Pizza.  Buzz over to Uno’s or Honi-Honi, Firewater or Ace’s Run, or many other restaurants and bars accessible from the water.  Idylwood is within a 5-minute boat ride across the lake to all the places you want to be this summer and a 10 minute car ride to the same places.
Make a gourmet dinner or enjoy take-out in our large kitchen and dining areas.  Hang out in the expansive three-season porch playing ping-pong or pool while cooking on the grill on the back deck.  Feel the lake breeze blowing through the large screened-in windows of the porch in the morning as you sit on the couch with your coffee thinking about what amazing activities to do today.
Take advantage of the large mudroom for all your lake laundry.  Wash towels and suits quickly and store out of the way of the rest of the home.  Idylwood is designed to support all your fun on the lake, hiking, and outdoor sports.
When inside, there are two living spaces both with wood-burning fireplaces for the chilly spring and fall evenings.  Choose to hang out upstairs to see the amazing sunsets and a sky full of stars.  Go down to the lower-level game room for a cozy night of family games or movies with lots of space to spread out. 
During all seasons, enjoy the expansive view from the living room and master bedroom.  The floor to ceiling windows with massive wooden angular ceilings makes the home feel grand inside and out.  The backyard has no trees blocking the long-range views of Deep Creek including the bridge, windmills, and sailboat races.  Given Idylwood’ s southern exposure, both the sunrise and sunset are visible from every room. Make sure to be up before the sunrise to see the fiery orange sunrise and take time to watch the amazing sunset as well. 
Need places for everyone to sleep?  Idylwood is set up for up to 4 couples + children.  The back bunk room has 3 full size bunk beds along with an expandable queen-size memory foam bed hidden in the beanbag.  There are 2 queens and 2 kings in the other bedrooms for the adults as well.  Enjoy your own small refrigerators in the rooms downstairs for your own goodies without having to go to the main kitchen.
Speaking of the kitchen, it will thrill the chef in your group! Two ovens, a Wolf gas range, a center island, and lots of storage space make it easy to prepare big breakfasts and delicious dinners. One main refrigerator along with two drink refrigerators make sure everyone’s drinks and food will be cold.  Bring wine?  Idylwood has a wine refrigerator to keep your wine perfectly chilled as well.  Everyone can gather around the table to share homestyle meals and stories about the day’s adventures. The convertible game table just inside the enclosed porch makes it possible to add seating for another 6 people along with the seating for 12 inside the home and seating for another 8 outside under the stars. Sliding doors give you easy access to the enclosed porch and to the grill when you’re in the mood for a cookout.  Idylwood is perfect for large dinners and gatherings.
The central location puts you within minutes of activities, restaurants, shops, mini golf, arcades, and much more. Wisp Resort is just 4 miles from your doorstep. They are well-known for year-round adventures that include two golf courses, skiing, snow tubing, mountain biking, a mountain coaster, and an aerial ropes course.
Exploring state parks is a favorite pastime at Deep Creek Lake. With sandy beaches for swimming, stunning waterfalls, miles of hiking trails and abundant wildlife, they will surely be a highlight of your vacation. 
???????Any time of the year and any way you want to vacation, Idylwood has a spot for you!  Come relax, unwind, and reconnect at Idylwood.  Make your next vacation unforgettable! Choose Idylwood for your next trip to Deep Creek Lake!
