There were very few negatives, but the few I would mention is the temperature varied greatly throughout the house; some rooms were very hot while others were very cold. The upstairs and first floor had very little soundproofing, so it was as if we were all staying in one room sometimes. These are little things, though, and they didn't ruin our experience at all.

Our extended family stayed in the Log Mahal for a long weekend. We had a great time. The house is very big and the grounds are expansive. There is a nice playground outside and a fire pit. The kitchen was nice and open to the dining area and was well stocked with everything we needed. The back deck was really nice.

This is the second year we have stayed at the Log Mahal, it is a great house and in great shape. We ran out of gas and it was 56 degrees in the house but the rental company was prompt to resolve the issue and we had heat by mid afternoon. We would have no problem recommending this rental and hope to return in the future.

We had a great time. The lawn area is wonderfully large for kids to run around in. Even small tots and larger 5 and 6 year olds. The fire pit was also very nice and got used well. The house is great and was easy to make use of. The dining table and bench seating was great for 4 families and kids. We really were able to relax and feel comfortable.

It's a beautiful cabin in a great setting for kids and adults! It's spacious and laid out nicely. The oversized dining room table was perfect for our group of 13. The kitchen is accommodated well. The only thing with the kitchen (it's minor but noticeable) is the lighting isn't great. Counter top lighting needs added in some way-under the overhead cabinets or something. Sound travels like crazy in here too. We had the master suite on the first floor and we could hear everything the kids above us were saying very clearly. But I guess that's a nuance of a log home. Otherwise it is well kept and beautifully laid out. We really enjoyed ourselves

The weekend getaway was a college reunion to celebrate our class turning 40 years old. We had a blast. Log Mahal was the perfect size and the kitchen and dinner table allowed us to eat, drink and play games.

The house was perfect for the number of people in our party. The kids, ages 9-2, loved the large yard and play room in the loft. We had a wonderful weekend in honor of my husband's 70th birthday.

Family Get-Away. My dad wanted the whole family to get-away together. Finally it happens after 4 years. The Log Mahal had plenty of room inside and out. Kids loved the swing set and room to play baseball. The adults loved all the rooms. We felt like we were staying in an expense resort, not a cabin in the woods. The staff at Taylor Made were friendly and very helpful. A wealth of knowledge on surrounding area and what to do with small children. They were quick to fix the minor problem we had. Responded within five minutes. I would recommend the Log Mahal to anyone that wants to get with a large family. We will be back!!!

We really enjoyed staying at this "cabin" for the Thanksgiving holiday with our own extended family. There was plenty of room for everyone and the kitchen was well equipped. The double ovens were a bonus. The fire pit, basketball court, swings and hot tub were also really enjoyed.

We had the BEST time staying at the Log Mahal last weekend for a surprise birthday celebration for my boyfriend. The place sleeps 16 - there are actually 2 bunk rooms with 4 beds in each. I thought from the pics there was only the 1. So really there were 6 bedrooms. Plenty of space - I thinke we had 17 people in our party. Hot tub was huge, fire pit awesome. We had a great time. The Log Hut which I believe sleeps 10 is right across the fire pit from the Log Mahal and if there were people staying there not party of our party it might have been annoying for them as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay to the fullest and were out at the fire pit pretty late. Would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to others. Can't wait for our trip next year!!!

We stayed at the Log Mahal from Thursday, 6/25/2015 through Sunday, 6/28/2015 & had a great experience. Although when we arrived a few things were out of sorts, as soon as we contacted Taylor Made, things were immediately corrected for us & we really appreciated their hard work in making our stay just how we wanted it.

This was my second time renting this home. It's very cozy and perfect for entertaining family and friends

Had a wonderful time at the house Log Mahal. Everything was fantastic. Will be planning another trip real soon.
- Feltrin D. from Baltimore, MD, Posted: 09/10/2014
We loved the house! We comfortably fit 11 adults and 4 toddlers. The only negative review we had was that you could hear everything from any room in the house. Certainly not a deal breaker though.
- David H. from Bairdford, PA, Posted: 06/10/2014
we will be back to stay there again.
- Lynn T. from Penn Yan, NY, Posted: 04/15/2014
Log Mahal was the perfect vacation home for us. The staff at Taylor-Made listened carefully to our needs and found the ideal home. A beautiful log home with a hot tub, a large flat screen TV and two sitting areas gave us the space we needed and the amenities we found time to enjoy to the max! We will be back.

As three familes travelling with younger children 3-6 this house was perfect! The Loft and children's room had everything you could need to keep your kids entertained. There were even kid cups and plates.

The house was amazing. It was spacious and the log rustic look with the antler chandelier was a nice touch. I would definitely come back to this house. its close to swallow falls and wisp. Hot tub was big.

This house is amazing. Very beautiful and it had everything we needed. I will be renting again. We was surprise by the 6th bedroom in the basement.

The house is amazing. The real estate company is very responsive and helpful. Everything was perfect, except the heater failed three times. The maintenance crew was very fast and got things working within the hour each time. Aside from the heater, everything was perfect. I will definitely use Taylor-Made again, and more than likely stay at the same house next year.

All I can say is we can't wait to get back and it was soooooo much more than expected.
- Shari L. from Alexandria, VA, Posted: 11/06/2013
We had a group of 16 that stayed at the Log Mahal. There was plenty of room but you can hear everything going on in the house in all the rooms. A little hard to take a nap, but it was just lovely. Great cabin feel. We loved the fire pit outside. The house is well kept and has nice furniture. It did need to be cleaned a little better but I notified management and she said it would be taken care of. I love working with Taylor-Made! This is our 2nd getaway this year and we are looking forward to planning again for the Spring. Great company, Fantastic Properties.

Beautiful home in a beautiful country setting. Perfect for our little children, ages 1 to 7 (5 boys). They really enjoyed the toys and the large yard. We all fit perfectly around the large picnic dinning table and the kitchen had everything we needed for meals. My only wish would be a closet in the master first floor bedroom. We have already talked about coming back next year!

Our group was a multi-generational family, and this was everyone's first visit to Deep Creek Lake. LOG MAHAL was absolutely perfect. Clean with very nice amenities and room for all. Location was pretty central for all activities, but we enjoyed just hanging out at the property with the fire pit and the hot tub too. The staff at Taylor-Made were extremely helpful with the reservation process and everyone gave rave reviews. The only issue was the water, but the owner explained he'd just had some work done on the well. We used bottled water for cooking. Looking forward to booking the property again. Thank you to TM for the great vacation getaway.
