Ponte Vista is a gorgeous house with plenty of room. We enjoyed the hot tub, day drinking on the patios with great views. The kitchen was as stocked as mine at home and had everything you may need to make anything! We did "Friends-giving" which included a turkey with all the sides :) The pool table was also a big draw for us. Bedrooms are large with comfortable beds. If your looking for a great weekend getaway - look no further and book this house. You won't be disappointed

This magnificent home had everything that we could want or need for a great weekend in the mountains. The home is located about a block from the lake with a nice view, was surrounded by trees which provided privacy and was smartly decorated throughout. The two wrap-around decks, two fire places, a hot tub and a pool table were bonuses that we all enjoyed very much. I can surely recommend this beautiful home to anyone and everyone!!

We had a great weekend in this beautiful home! Everything we could have needed was available for us. The staff was friendly and accommodating--the response to our maintenance requests (heat wasn't working) was almost immediate, even at a late hour. The home was clean and well cared for. We would definitely consider renting this home again in the future for our couples retreat.

Great rental house for our family of adults and a baby. Could not have been a better choice in Deep Creek Lake area. Beautiful view of the lake and within short drive of grocery store and recreational activities.
- Anonymous from rochester, NY, Posted: 09/27/2017
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Deep Creek. The area had lots to see and do and was easy to get around by car. The house was clean and well maintained. We needed to call to have the hot tub cleaned and the service man was there very quickly. The only drawbacks were the house had a very steep driveway and the dock was not easily accessible.
- Anonymous from Glenelg, MD, Posted: 08/08/2017
The house was exactly what we wanted. It was lake access with a short walk to the lake. The water was deep this time of year and the kids had a blas jumping off the docks. The rooms were exactly as described (some of the mattresses were a bit hard), and the view was fantastic. The only negative is Taylor-Made's internet! We couldn't keep connected on our phone or computers. Our Kindle Fire worked just fine, though.

This was exactly what I was looking for in a weekend get away. I absolutely loved the home and all the amenities. The view is amazing!!! It feels like your home away from home. They've done a great job with this property. The house was very close to the ski resort and town so it was no hassle at all to run to the store for anything we needed. My only complaint was that I didn't booked for a longer trip.
- Wendy M. from Pittsburgh, PA, Posted: 01/31/2017
The house was great! Very clean and comfortable. The grill did not work but that is the only negative we had. Thanks for a great trip.

The home was even nicer and more spacious than it looks in the photos. It was clean, with plenty of hot water for all tenants in a fabulous location. We will definitely return to stay at ponte vista in the future. The only two small issues that need resolved are that the dishwasher never turned out a clean dish which made for a lot of time spent handwashing dishes pots pans etc and the toilet handle in the master bath (main floor) does not flush. You need to take the back off and manually flush the toilet every time. Other than that, it couldn't have been nicer. We loved our time spent in the home.
- Fred W. from Crownsville, MD, Posted: 03/05/2016
Had a great time.Everything went smoothly and home was clean and in great condition.

The house was amazing, everything was in great shape when we arrived. Someone came to set up the hot tub right when we got there. The driveway is very steep and we got 36 inches of snow between friday morning and sat night, but taylor made was great and plowed it once a day. Which helped sooooo much. I will definitely be renting this again next year!

I stayed at the Ponte Vista for a weekend getaway with some friends, and everyone had a great experience. The house was clean and fully stocked with kitchen supplies, towels, and extra blankets. It's just minutes away from the Wisp Resort and local grocery store. We had an issue with heating, but maintenance came to the house almost immediately to fix it. I would definitely rent it again!
One of the best features was the pool table. We used it every day and it made for some really fun times for the adults.
The kitchen is VERY well stocked. Even things we brought ourselves were there, like a hand mixer and popcorn maker. Plenty of utensils, pots and pans, serving dishes and the like.
The table was able to fit all 8 of us, but not without some challenges. The description says it seats 10, but it really only seats 6. There are stools at the breakfast counter, so that worked out just fine. But it was a struggle to all sit down together for Thanksgiving dinner.
The only real issue we had was with the hot tub. It was not clean and, in fact, we only used it once and got out when we started seeing lots of floating hair clumps. We didn't call to have it serviced because, for starters, we didn't notice it until Saturday and by that time it seemed too much of a hassle to call someone in.
Things to bring: extra toilet paper, paper towels, dishwashing soap, trash bags.
Overall, our time was wonderful. We would definitely stay at Ponte Vista again!!
- Jen W. from CROFTON, MD, Posted: 12/01/2015
My family of 4 and our friends (another family of 4) stayed at Ponte Vista over this Thanksgiving weekend. We were there for 5 days and had a wonderful time. The house is very clean and large enough for everyone to fit comfortably. The windows and views of the lake were terrific. The wood burning fireplace in the main living room was cozy, even on the warmer days, and the gas fireplace in the basement was perfect for watching movies with the kids.
- Antonio M. from Windsor mill, MD, Posted: 11/24/2015
Your talking about the ultimate experience !! This was my second trip to Deep Creek and it just keeps getting better. The home is amazing and comfortable and the activities are plentiful!! Great great time to spend with the people you love
- Sharon B. from South Bend, IN, Posted: 08/04/2015
From start to end Taylor Made was courteous, helpful, and professional. The amenities within the house provided everyone a great relaxing experience.
- Ralph D. from Berlin, MD, Posted: 07/28/2015
This was our 3rd stay at this house. It is beautiful and everything is top of the line. The outside of the house needs some work though. The deck and table need power washing and staining. The lounge chairs are dry rotting and ripping. They have planters, but only weeds growing. I would recommend something decorative instead of planters. The ice maker wasn't working but that can happen. We just bought ice. When we notified the office they sent someone the next day with ice. He made some adjustments but it still didn't work. The staff were all very nice and polite. There are 3 stories and only one thermostat on the middle level. Lower level got very cold but upper level took some time to cool . All in all we had a very nice stay. Hope they spruce up the upper deck.
I was more than excited to actually play pool again and WIN a few games. The grill turned Saturday afternoon into a BBQ heaven. The weather was more than excellent for those few days just topped everything off!
I want to thank the owners for opening their home to us and Taylor Made for their assistance in the making of my wonderful and beautiful birthday celebration.
May The Peace And The Love Of God Be With You Always!

It was my 60 plus birthday on May 2,2015. My father had just passed a week before my reservation. I was encouraged to keep my reservations after all arrangements for the funeral services were made. I am glad I did. This comfortable home, the mountainous beauty, the scenic area and the company of close friends helped me to get through this difficult time. I believed it was God's plan for me to take a step back a be revitalize in a very grounded home. My church family more than enjoyed the comfort and spaciousness of the home. My chef/friend raved about the kitchen facilities. The hot tub was more than therapeutic.
The location isn't a lake access which we thought it was from the pictures but worked out perfect for us to take a walk. We drove to the lake to rent a boat and it was less than 5 miles away.
- Isha P. from Potomac, MD, Posted: 05/04/2015
We were very happy with the overall cleanliness and set up of the property. We were a large family, 7 adults, 6 kids and a toddler and had enough beds for all. The basement was cold like the other reviewers have mentioned, but it wasn't uncomfortable for the kids.
The only downfall was the single bathroom on the top floor because it is used by 3 bedrooms that could potentially hold up to 8 guests. This single bathroom doesn't seem to be enough but there is a half bath not far (down 1 flight of stairs).
The bathroom is a very minor set back though. Otherwise, this house is amazing!
- Anonymous from Pittsburgh, PA, Posted: 03/24/2015
This house was beyond our expectations. We enjoyed the hot tub, local surroundings (Swallow Falls State Park), cooking on the grill, etc. The televisions met the needs of the guys to stream TV and play video games. We would definitely go back again.
- Anonymous from North East, MD, Posted: 03/18/2015
Very nice house overall, great location with regards to proximity to Wisp. The only issue with house was inability to control heating for basement/lower level. Very cold in that area rendering it essentially unusable during our stay. Zone controlled heating access would be ideal. Overall, beautiful home and we would consider staying there again.

The house looks even better than in the pictures! Very spacious and well kept. Our only issue was with the driveway being steep and getting snowed in. I called several times to have the driveway plowed, was promised someone to come during the day, and no one came. Come the morning to leave (and after several calls to the emergency line), we finally got a plow (and after getting a car stuck in the driveway). Other than that, our experience was wonderful- easy check in and out. Will rent again, just maybe not during the winter months!

The only thing we would have changed is to make sure to get a house right on the lake next year. We were a little shocked to find out how far the house was from the lake. The view was amazing though :)
- Tonya S. from Baltimore, MD, Posted: 07/22/2014
We had a wonderful time. The house was amazing. It was peaceful and the hot tub felt wonderful. We went out to the go carts and mini golf and the restaurant was very nice. We had a wondrful view of the water. The beach was very nice. The kids enjoyed the activities and the quality family time. We will be returning.

Loved the house, and the location!! The view was breathtaking. Just wish we had been told that the driveway was so steep. The management company did a GREAT job keeping it plowed!! Also, a house that size could have used one more bathroom upstairs.
- Nicole H. from Baltimore, Md, Posted: 02/10/2014
Great property overall!
- Ingrid V. from Burtonsville, MD, Posted: 02/04/2014
We had a great time and the house was awesome! The driveway was the worst!!!! It's on a high hill and property management didn't put sand/salt on it. It took us 1hr and 30min to shovel it ourself when the maintenance guy only put two bags down. So heads up!!!
The third floor really needs a second full bath. with the possibility of 8 people sleeping on the second floor, one bath is really challenging.
Lovely, comfortable furnishings in the home. A firmer mattress in the MBR would be more comfortable.
- Anonymous from Houston, TX, Posted: 01/03/2014
The home was lovely and very clean! The downside was that the downstairs, (lower level where the large TV and pool table and wet bar) was so cold the first few days of our visit that it was unusable. A separate heating system really needs to be installed.
- Breon J. from Oxon Hill, MD, Posted: 10/29/2013
We absolutely loved the house and would definitely return. One thing, the hot tub didn't have directions on how to operate so we were definitely confused.

4 high school girlfriends rented this home to get together to celebrate our 60th birthdays. The hot tub and large screen tv and gas fireplace made for very fun evenings. The house was located close to many attractions and the lake view was beautiful both in the morning while enjoying coffee on the deck and watching the sun set while soaking in the hot tub !

Wonderful property, very quiet and relaxing. The view was spectacular from sunrise to sunset and through the night!. Our entire family really enjoyed our stay.

We have rented many vacation homes over the years. This was by far the cleanest, with plenty of towels, comfortable sheets, and the kitchen was stocked with cookware to accommodate any meal that you would want to prepare.
- Kristie H. from Milton, DE, Posted: 07/23/2013
Ponte Vista was a great property to compliment our first experience at Deep Creek. The layout of the house suited our three families (6 adults; six children, ages 11,7,4,6,3,20 mos)well. We were able to spread out or gather together depending on the situation. The second floor deck was great for grilling and karaoke. The kitchen suited our needs as we cooked dinner for 12 four out of the seven nights. The property was close to several local attractions including the State Park, Swallow Falls and the Wisp Resort. We will definitely make our way back to Deep Creek in the near future!

Very nice house. Great views of the lake. Nicely furnished. The only downside is the walk to the boat dock, which is long and steep.
- Anonymous from Elkton, MD, Posted: 07/10/2013
Everything about this home was wonderful. Waking up every morning to a lake view was amazing especially since the entire front of the home was all windows. The house was much more beautiful in person than it was in the pictures and it looked wonderful in the pictures. You never expect to get better than the pictures and with this house you do. The fact that the house was on the same road as Wisp Resort and right around the corner from numerous restaurants and stores was an extra bonus. My family and I plan on coming back every year.

Great week at the Lake! Wanted to mention that we had a small issue with the the security system, and Mr Taylor was quick to respond and resolve it!

We LOVED the interior of the cabin. It was meticulously and perfectly decorated to immerse the guests in a rustic, woodsy, Deep Creek state-of-mind as soon as we arrived. The beds and linens were extra comfy. The kitchen was extremely well-equipped for our needs. We had a group of 8 women and we were all accommodated by the size of the dining table, the hot tub, the living areas, and the number of beds. Everything we used (appliances, AC, DVD player, fireplace, hot tub, showers, blinds, etc.) was in working order. There was loads of natural light. The cabin was very clean, including the linens, dishes, and towels. The dock was only 1/4mi walk away. The view was fantastic. Overall we had a great experience with the rental property and I would definitely recommend it to a friend. I think it would be a great rental for all 4 seasons. We appreciate the owners and Taylor-made for giving us such a nice weekend.
- Denise H. from Andover, MN, Posted: 05/31/2013
We absolutely loved the property, well kept and decorated home. We were impressed with how well supplied the home was with basic necessities. The only reason we didn't give it 5 stars all the way across was due to the flushing mechanism on the main floor and upstairs bathroom. Because it was so difficult to flush, the handle ended up breaking rendering the toilet unusable unless we manually opened the tank. Maybe it's time to change the toilet out!? Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful home!
- Amanda T. from Flintstone, MD, Posted: 05/07/2013
We had a great time! This house was the best we stayed in so far! I will definitely recommend this house to someone! Everything was spotless and so very nice! I definitely loved it there! Can't wait to come back up again! Thank you so much!
- Stephanie S. from Fairmont, WV, Posted: 04/09/2013
Ponte Vista was every bit as lovely as it was pictured, and the lake/mountain views were beautiful. I did not feel, however, that this home was ideal for as large of a group as it sleeps. If the house actually had 12 staying, 8 people would be sharing one bathroom on the top floor and there would not be ample seating in the dining or living areas. We were a party of 8 and felt crowded. Many guests probably do not use kitchens for much more than a coffee pot, but this particular listing boasted a kitchen with every imaginable gadget for preparing a gourmet meal, which became my primary reason for selection, as we love to cook together. I was very disappointed to not even have a decent knife or large mixing bowl in this kitchen. I realize that guests can get things disorganized, but I encourage the owner to put the contents of drawers and cabinets in better order and inspect the washing that guests are doing, as we had to wash several dirty glasses before using them. Also, the ice dispenser in the freezer door does not work. "Little things" like these add up to make a stay less enjoyable.

We did not expect 16 inches of snow during Spring Break, but we could not have asked to be snowed in at a better place. The home was perfect for two couples and four teenagers. We enjoyed watching the snow fall as we sat in the hot tub, played billiards and other games or just watched tv. My only regret was that the firewood was too wet to catch in the fireplace. We were very comfortable and enjoyed our visit tremendously. The home was very cozy and clean. It had all of the amenities that anyone could want in a home. I highly recommend this home. I just hope it's available when I decide to return. I would love to come back in the summer. :-D

- Peggy W. from Washington, DC, Posted: 12/31/2012
My family enjoyed everything except for the snow removal and the awful smell that was outside that prevented us from enjoying the hot tub. This was very disappointing for a number of my family members. One of our cars actually slid sideways down the driveway!!!!! It was very scary.
- Troy C. from Dunkinville, PA, Posted: 12/25/2012
Great place to relax. Home was very nice for a winter retreat but I think it would be awesome for a summer or warm Fall retreat. The separate little lodge style pavilion would be an amazing place for dinner and games. Again an overall great place.

The only 2 issues we had with the property were: 1.There was no hot tub key. We called the office and spoke to someone who offered to come out with a key, but never showed up. Therefore, we could not use the hot tub. If I were to shedule this vacation
Creek so we didn't realize how important it is to pick the right house for a dock and outside activities. Thank you
- Anonymous from Manlius, NY, Posted: 08/16/2011
It was a fabulous house inside! But the location did not work for us. The elevation was too steep, and the dock was extremely inconvenient! There was no place to ride bikes close to the house and the kids could not play outside. We had never been to Deep
karts, WISP, and restaurants yet on a road that dead ends so not a lot of thru traffic. The decor in the entire house was great we enjoyed the wi-fi, the seven TVs and of course the hot tub. The only down side was the access to the lake which is about 250
yards down the street then a very steep couple hundred feet down to the lake. It was fine for us because we have older kids but if you have young kids or older folks it would be tough going. This house is perfect for a family up to 12 and we highly recommend
it for summer or winter.
- Tony P. from Hanover, MD, Posted: 08/16/2011
We absolutely loved this house. It has a great view of the lake from the second story deck and third story front bedroom, but is surrounded with trees for lots of privacy and solitude. It's close to all the amenities and a short drive to food, gas , go

Long walk to the pier - otherwise great
