We had a fantastic weekend at Over the Rainbow. It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We had a toilet issue and someone came within the hour to fix it. The house was clean, cozy, and comfortable.

We rented this place for 4 families sharing a trip to Deep Creek during the winter ski season. The snow was paltry for us, but we were able to enjoy the nice lake views and our kids the ample play space in this large home.
- Paula J. from South Fork, PA, Posted: 06/26/2017
We way overpacked. We took everything including way too many clothes. With a washer/dryer and full cupboards of everything that one needs to cook. Pack lite and enjoy the lake, the view and the house.

Been coming to Over The Rainbow for a few years. It was nice to see theybhave updated the living room and dining room furniture and added some new bedding. House is very accommodating to guests as the bedrooms are spaced out nicely. Kitchen could use a few items (oven mitts, mixing bowls)
- Dide S. from Gaithersburg, MD, Posted: 01/18/2017
The house was nice but stains on the furniture. The big issue was that there was nothing in the kitchen like salt, pepper, toilet paper, paper towels, etc. The last home I rented (not with this company) had everything!

House as advertised. Great access to lake, maybe 200 feet till you are on the dock. House clean when we arrived. Bedrooms pretty good, but one of the beds was very loud when you sat on it and another bed was pretty hard. Outside of house needs a good pressure wash. Kitchen pretty good; bathrooms good. Fridge did not work when we arrived but they had someone come out on Sunday and fix it. Great response time. Overall, a pretty good house and we had eight people.

A brothers/nephews weekend was enjoyed by all. Amenities in abundance and lots of space. Lakefront location provides excellent views. Only minor negative was a couple of small maintenance items that have been present all three years. They did not detract from our stay.
- Michelle V. from Latrobe, PA, Posted: 11/17/2015
My family and I were at Over the Rainbow in October, beautiful house and beautiful location. The T-M staff was wonderful to work with; they went out of their way to help me find a house that would accommodate a disabled family member and provided me with help in unloading my stuff when I arrived on crutches. Outstanding service!!!
- Ellen M. from Presto, PA, Posted: 10/21/2015
We utilized most amenities, not all the tv's. We ate all meals here, plenty of kitchen supplies: pots, pans, serving utensils, large (clean) toaster , and even a roaster. The table is roomy and comfortable. The table finish is a little worn and one of the chairs had a loose back but cozy enough for a game of tripoly. Enjoyed building a puzzle on the large table too, that was at the house. Plenty of lighting too, the lights on the stairs was good. Every time we had a question the answer was in the house book. We hiked the trail at swallow falls and deep creek state park, there are fees to enter-cash only. The deck furniture was nice but the weather w as a little cold to use, but the view of the stars was wonderful. The glass windows over looking the lake were very clean too, refreshing view!

My husband and I recently got married in Deep Creek Maryland and we had booked Over the Rainbow with Taylor-Made to use both as our ceremony and reception location . We also stayed several days at the same location for a mini vacation and I have to say that the experience was absolutely amazing. Our wedding was fantastic and the backdrop and the setting ofthe house helped make it that way. The staff at Taylor-Made were very professional and polite and helped us out in ways that we didn't expect. We will definitely look to book another vacation with Taylor made in the future and thank you all for the hospitality.
Rented a boat and had a great time on the lake.
Only shortcoming was the lack of and mix of silverware.

Very nice experience. Great location. House was clean and comfortable.
- Susan D. from Baltimore, MD, Posted: 07/13/2015
This home was very comfortable. Even with the rainy weather, this home had enough room so that everyone was not on top of each other. The amenities of the home made everything easy; plenty of pots and pans. Did lack hot mitts and potholders, but that's the only negative we could find. T-MV were extremely prompt (less than 20 minutes) to replace a blender one evening. The location was just perfect. Fishing off the dock was fun with plenty of catches. The property was clean and well-maintained. Our favorite spot on the property was the deck. The key code entry/call-in made the arrival process VERY easy, as was the call-in for departure; much easier than picking up/returning a key. This year's gift of a small soft cooler was most appreciated. The location is just perfect - lots of sun and shade with the most perfect view of the lake. This was one of our best vacations homes in which we have stayed.

We have stayed in Over The Rainbow several times over the past few years. I appreciate the update to the grill and the new dek furniture pillows. As always, Amanda @ Taylor-Made was top notch with my booking. Would love to see a mop & bucket added to the broom closet. Had many rain storms and with the mud driveway i hates leaving the garage entryway dirty but there was no way to clean up betrer than a push broom once the driveway muck dried.

WE HAVE STAYED AT OVER THE RAINBOW IN EACH OF THE LAST TWO YEARS. WE HAVE BEEN VERY PLEASED WITH IT'S AMENITIES AND ITS LOCATION. IT IS VERY COMFORTABLE AND USER FRIENDLY
- Michele B. from Darlington, MD, Posted: 03/26/2015
This is the third time we stayed in this house,it's In a great location and maintained very nicely.
It was a very easy rental process and all staff we encountered were very professional and courteous. We were there during the snow on President's day weekend and had concerns about getting out of the driveway. When I called the office they arranged for someone to come and plow the driveway for us the day after the snow! That is excellent customer service! I highly recommend this property. You will not be disappointed!
- Holly F. from Smithsburg, MD, Posted: 02/18/2015
The perfect place to be snowed in with great friends. This beautiful home exceeded our expectations. Plenty of space and an exceptional view of the lake. We were very impressed with how well stocked the kitchen was with anything and everything you would need. The only thing that was missing was an oven mitt.
- Elena S. from Silver Spring, MD, Posted: 01/06/2015
wonderfully appointed house,spacious 4 bedrooms,a huge master bedroom,even,which is a real rarity,decent pool table...everything to our liking.
- Kathleen H. from Mount Airy, MD, Posted: 12/02/2014
WE HAD A GREAT TIME AND A WONDERFUL STAY. WE DID HAVE A FEW MINOR COMPLAINTS. THE LIVING ROOM FURNITURE WAS VERY WORN AND NOT COMFORTABLE. THE BATHROOM BY THE FRONT DOOR HAD AN ISSUE WITH THE TOILET AND IT DID NOT WORK. THE ONLY OTHER THING WAS NO POT HOLDERS OR OVEN MITTS IN THE KITCHEN. THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE SINCE WE PREPARED THANKSGIVING DINNER THERE. OTHER THAN THAT, WE LOVED THE HOUSE AND IT WAS CLEAN AND PRETTY.
- Anonymous from Pittsburgh, PA, Posted: 11/19/2014
We have stayed at this home for the past few years. We love the layout as it gives you privacy yet plenty of space to gather together also. Over the years they have done improvements. Could still use some nicer kitchen appliances and some tlc on the outdoor dek lighting but it's still our favorite place to stay.
- Andrew P. from Laurel, MD, Posted: 09/15/2014
4 of us (two couples) stayed at this property in Sept 2014. Pluses are the house layout, house decor, proximity to and view of the lake, cleanliness, and the amenties (especially the pool table and two fire pits). Minuses are the highway noise from across the lake and the large number of spiders outside that needed cleaning (though the latter may be true anywhere). Overall the accommodations and amenities were excellent, and we recommend this place.

Our family had a great time on our vacation over Labor Day weekend. The house worked out perfect! No complaints, lots of fun and laughter.
- Ronald B. from Clayton, NJ, Posted: 08/19/2014
Cool, windy, wet but enjoyable. We had several maintenance issues develop why we were at the house. (Toilet and door lock). Reported to Taylor Made and they had someone there within several hours to make the repairs.

Over the Rainbow was lovely and just as depicted online. We had 3 families - 3 couples, 3 girls and 2 boys + a toddler and it was plenty of space! One complaint would be the lack of Adirondack chairs (or any chairs) for down in the grass to overlook the lake. The weather cooperated a little bit mostly it was nice to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Loved the water views from the LR and Kitchen. Great cross breezes when windows were open. One of the moms we travelled with brought blackout shades for the kids rooms and it made a huge difference - slept till 8am or later. The windows to let in a lot of early light so keep that in mind! I will say that the booking and payment process with Taylor was a bit clunky and disorganized but the house was lovely. Thanks!
- Lori V. from Forrest Hill, MD, Posted: 05/07/2014
We came together from MD, Kentucky and Holland for a little family reunion. The house was perfect, clean, cozy and had everything we needed. The boat slips were not yet in the water which we were hoping we could fish from. The outside deck furniture could use an update, but finding the fire pit by the lake was a wonderful surprise. We had a great time and would recommend the property.
- Anonymous from Vienna, WV, Posted: 04/11/2014
A FEW MINOR PROBLEMS, AS I SUSPECT WE WERE THE FIRST VISITORS IN A WHILE (TV CABLE NOT ON) BUT OTHERWISE WE ALL ENJOYED OUR STAT
- Anonymous from Reston, VA, Posted: 03/17/2014
The property was very nice! However the coffee maker did not work and the master bedroom television did not work very well and should be replaced. The outdoor furniture was worn and dirty. Otherwise the experience was very good!
- Darlene P. from Bel Air, MD, Posted: 02/26/2014
We all enjoyed our stay completely. WE plan it again next year as always.
- Anonymous from Houston, PA, Posted: 01/21/2014
This property was great for a girls' weekend. We just wanted a place to kick back and chill out for a weekend, and this place was perfect. Even though it was very windy, cold and snowy, we had everything we needed and didn't have to leave the place all weekend until it was time to go. Everyone had a great time.
- Anonymous from Pittsburgh, PA, Posted: 10/15/2013
We have been in this home several times. We love the layout and the location. The owners have added new couches in the main living room which was a nice suprise! Kitchen is equipped well. I wish they would replace burnt lightbulbs in the outside lights, they have been out for the past two years!
- Jonathin C. from Washington, PA, Posted: 10/02/2013
The house was more beautiful in person than on the website. We had a great time, and plan to rent this house every year on our anniversary
- Cecilia C. from Haymarket, VA, Posted: 09/20/2013
We will rent this house next summer. The view of lake and yard was wonderful. The house was spacious. My family definite wants to come back next summer

We've stayed at Over the Rainbow many times and are never disappointed. It was a lovely weekend!

It was absolutely amazing. Beautiful scenery and the house was beautiful inside and out. Only thing missing was a broom :)
- Kaley H. from Hagerstown, MD, Posted: 06/05/2013
We found TaylorMade to be a very easy company to work with. All their staff was very nice. We used Over the Rainbow for a wedding venue of about 75 guests. First let me say the view at this property of the lake is amazing! It is a beautiful property! The house had plenty of room and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils etc. While inside the house itself was clean, the overall yard could have used more maintenance from grass seed, to smoothing the gravel driveway in some places. We had to spend our first day sweeping leaves and cobwebs from the deck-both above and below, as well as the front door, to make this acceptable for our future wedding guests. We had additional minor issues like a screen door left uninstalled, burned out light bulbs, and loose hooks and toilet paper fixtures. For an event the property worked well and is beautiful. The lawn slopes slightly but we were able to easily prop tables up.The only major issue we had was the AC pipe drains right into the middle of the lawn, and this also happens to be the only place a 30X30tent will fit. This was a MAJOR hazard to our guests-creating a large slippy muddy spot. Additionally there is a tree stump here that should really be ground out as it is a tripping hazard. We enjoyed our stay, and wish we could have stayed longer. The wedding was wonderful and all our vendors were familiar with the property which helps. We especially loved the hot tub, pool table, and having the docks right there in front! Will definitely be visiting again.

- Tom P. from Baltimore, MD, Posted: 02/26/2013
WE just got back from a 2-night stay with 10 others (6 adults, 4 kids). The place actually fit all twelve of us rather nicely with plenty of room, rooms and bathrooms. The place must have recently been remodeled as the floors looked new. We had a great time at Deep Creek and wished the stay would have been longer!
- Charles L. from North Bethesda, MD, Posted: 01/18/2013
This is a stunning house and location. We have rented this house now twice during the winter. We enjoy everything from the spacious home, the location right off the water, and it's short distance to Wisp. The lake views are stunning and the outdoor hot tube is fantastic, especially after a day of skiing/boarding. Our experience here and with Taylor Made has been a pleasure - we plan to come back again and again.
served all your wedding needs. wonderful back drop for pictures. Only concern was the grounds, rough, had two persons trip in holes We filled a couple of them for safty. other wise had a great day.
- Gwen H. from Manchester, MD, Posted: 10/24/2012
Had a beautiful Wedding at Over the Rainbow.
- Leslie Q. from Virginia Beach, VA, Posted: 07/09/2012
We had a wonderful time. However, several drains were clogged and the electronics were not as promised. One item we requested to be repaired(floor plug) was never attended to even though one maintenance man knew about it.
I did like having a garage and the huge deck.
I was not too keen on the bedroon layout. I feel a master bedroon should be upstairs with privacy and not a central location of the house!
- Anonymous from McDonald, PA, Posted: 06/12/2012
The only thing negative I have to say is that the place could use a new coffee pot! I must have my coffee in the morning and it's very frustrating when it takes 30 minutes for a pot to brew, which makes 3 cups and you have 10 people!
- aretha s. from baltimore, MD, Posted: 01/25/2012
we as in my husband and i have stayed at least 6 propeties at TaylorMade and we are looking into properties and land to build our home there becasue we love it so much. We even drove up for 1 day to go fishing, dinner and made a day trip out of it.
- Anonymous from Lititz, PA, Posted: 01/14/2012
We very much enjoyed our stay at Over the Rainbow. A quick snowfall added to enjoyment. We did have difficulty maintaining a comfortable temperature throughout the house. In most cases it was too warm--- except the master bedroom.
- Robert W. from Frederick, MD, Posted: 10/26/2011
Excellent, from beginning to end. Already send a complimentary email to the property management company. A few things in the house need some attention, but they are very minor. Lovely location, well maintained property, well managed. Will rent again in the future.
- Cathi C. from Washington, PA, Posted: 09/14/2011
This place is beautiful My family and I had a wonderful time. We want to get it next year for a week. The only complaint is that it could have been cleaner.
- Gregg R. from Bel Air, MD, Posted: 07/25/2011
We had such a great stay! Thanks to Jodi for her recommendation and great service. Can't wait to come back! Beautiful house on a beautiful lake property!
- Susan J. from Medford, NJ, Posted: 07/22/2011
Over the Rainbow is becoming a family tradition. We love the location and great lakefront. We would love to see the kitchen stocked with pots and pans in better condition. It's tough to cook with "yucky" cookware. My only other complaint is the same as last year...Please "retire" the basement sofabed! It is truly disgusting and unsleepable. (sorry). That being said, our family continues to make treasured memories here.
The house was listed for sale and we were not informed of this. During our stay the realtor came by to show the house even though we had informed the rental agent that we did not want that to occur during our stay. Apparently there was a miscommunication because the realtor showed up anyway, but was very understanding that the house could not be shown because we were there.
The heat did not work when we arrived and Jeremy from maintenance came over and fixed it promptly.
- Steven K. from Jefferson, MD, Posted: 10/25/2010
The dishwasher was not working. It leaked when it was used.
1.screen door to deck needs resetting

4.need bathroom rugs
5.not conected for comcast
6.bedroom remote doesnt work
7.floodlites out side dont work

Our stay was good and would recommend. Following is a list of concerns:
- David P. from Frederick, Maryland, Posted: 09/08/2010
We had a wonderful stay at "Over the Rainbow"... the only thing that went wrong is that we left our pasta strainer in the kitchen! So, now future tenants should plan on fixing pasta to eat! :) The 3 outdoor hotdog sticks were nice to use while we sat around the campfire by the lake and made s'mores, thanks! We had a great vacation at "Over the Rainbow".
Just a note: We have been considering buying a lake house and "Over the Rainbow" was a prospect, but after seeing the condition it was in, we'll keep shopping.
- Susan J. from Medford, NJ, Posted: 07/28/2010
The owners have really let the place go. (We have rented this property before.) From the cracked tile, haggered carpet, and sagging furniture (patio, too) to the awful choice of cooking essentials, we were very disappointed with the "inside". Having said that, it is hard to beat the location and view on the lake. If you plan to rent, don't expect the inside to match the glorious view of the lake.
- JJ J. from Mclean, VA, Posted: 02/04/2010
everything went well. however, it would be a good idea to notify winter vacationers if the driveway is uphill. we didn't bring a 4-wheel drive vehicle and struggled to get up the driveway. you guys helped us out though. thanks.
- Susan B. from Huntingtown, MD, Posted: 09/15/2009
Our vacation was very nice, but the overall condition of the house was a bit disappointing. The quality and quantity of cookware, dishes, and appliances in the kitchen was far inferior to most places where we have stayed at DCL. The carpet and furniture was stained more than most places we have rented. There should be trashcans in the bathrooms and the musty smell of the basement should be addressed. However, the location and layout of the house was excellent.
- Anonymous from Hunningtown, MD, Posted: 08/11/2009
Everything was great, the house is comfortable and well laid out and the view of the lake and the level walk to the lake was a plus. The only slight downside was it was quite busy being on the main channel the shared docks (this was very minor for us), lastly because of the location the fishing was not very good. These were only small issues overall it was a 4 star rating.
- Anonymous from Pittsburgh, PA, Posted: 07/20/2009
The lake view and convienvce is great. Cleanliness was not great. Kitchen cabinet doors are falling off hinges, back of house where you enter is unkept, lots of weeds and unkept landscaping. Older furniture. I could look past these little things for the great lake location!
- Anonymous from Lutherville, MD, Posted: 07/06/2009
The only issues that we had was that the hot tub was not cleaned prior to our arrival because the company didn't know we were coming, the large master bed was extremely uncomfortable, and there wasn't a functioning vacuum in the house and the one that was brought to us didn't work either. Other than those minor things, the place was great and we had an amazing vacation.
- Shawan R. from Baltimore, MD, Posted: 02/24/2009
this home was beautiful inside and out. just a few things missing like a stereo system and computer.and there was not a television in 2 of the bedrooms. besides those things the house was beautiful. the manager chad was very friendly and professional. just because of his friendliness we will be renting from taylor made again.
- Sarah L. from Frederick, MD, Posted: 12/30/2008
Our post Christmas weekend at Over the Rainbow was great! All ten of us were easily accomodated in the house. The location and views were amazing and the pool table and large living room provided enough room for everyone.

Beautiful, peaceful, scenic place. Had lots of fun just looking out the big window. My one friend didn't even want to ever leave the place--even to go out to dinner!
- David S. from , , Posted: 09/30/2008
The home was fantastic. Probably so much more than the two of us needed. For off season, thought the price per night was a bit high. Had we brought a large group, would have been one thing, but is was the two of us and we used all of four rooms in the entire house.
- Sheldon C. from Teaneck, NJ, Posted: 08/25/2008
Perfect location, great house. A family of 8 plus a baby had a great time!
