Excellent Location - Beautiful Home
The house was amazing - the view and location on the mountain was perfect! Plenty of room for all who stayed. It was an adult friend/couples getaway for my husband's 50th birthday and we all enjoyed our weekend! 2 living rooms was great, theater room was good for the guys to hang, pool table & bar area was the perfect gathering place to chill, kitchen space was amazing, sauna was so relaxing and the hot tub was a nice place to end the evenings. THANK YOU!
Thank you! I am glad you had such a good time at the lake. It is great to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed all the amenities. Give us a call when you are ready to come back!

Spent a long weekend from Wednesday night to Saturday morning at Mountain Merlot. The house was in excellent shape and getting into the house for check-in was seamless. When we arrived we heard a smoke alarm chirping and called Taylor Made and they had someone out within an hour to replace the batteries. The house was equipped with linens and the kitchen contained enough cookware to cook dinner for the three nights. The hot tub was not on when we first arrived and we had to turn on the breaker switch. the hot tub was ready by the second night. There is a short walk to the ski lift with access to all of the trails of Wisp mountain. We enjoyed our stay at Mountain Merlot and would stay there again.
Thanks for the awesome comments! We appreciate and value your feedback. Mountain Merlot is a really cool house, and the location is amazing! Glad you had a great time!
Please come see us again soon!

We have stayed at this location 3 times now and it must be the best ski in ski out choice in the resort. It leads to a lift that goes to green slopes or a black diamond overlooking the lake. Hot tub is surrounded by pine trees, which gives some nice privacy for relaxation and spending time with others. The kitchen is beautiful. Fridge was freezing some items placed in the very back of it and ice could have been cleared a little better near the hot tub, but overall a wonderful stay. Comfortable and ample furniture in multiple areas for people to gather. The giant table is awesome for meals for all guests.
Thank you for returning to Mountain Merlot! I am glad you had another fun ski getaway at Deep Creek. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to seeing you again!

Mountain Merlot was the perfect home for our weekend getaway. It was spacious, with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone in our group. The dinning room table was large, accommodating everyone so that we could enjoy dinner together. The house was clean and had a lot of amenities to help make our stay fun. Ping pong, hot tub, board games and the beautiful views from the deck made it desirable.- Lacy , Posted: 09/21/2020

Wonderful Second Stay
This was our second time staying at this massive house. It is such a comfortable and well maintained location. It was impeccably clean and the kitchen supplies were really nice. The location is perfect to get into a lift or any level of slope. We were very happy with our stay and will come back a third time for sure! Only suggestions would be to put a mat or outdoor carpet going from door to hot tub. It gets slick and icy- could lead to falls. Drain in one of the bathroom showers wasn’t draining well, but not a big deal.
Thanks, Lauren! So happy that you enjoyed your stay! This home does have the perfect location for skiing! I will have our maintenance techs take a look at the shower drain. Hope you come see us again!- Lauren , Posted: 03/02/2020
