We had a wonderful time. The home is exactly as described and we had no issues during our stay. The view and hottub very relaxing and beautiful.

The view was awesome and we really enjoyed the hot tub. The furniture was comfortable and the kitchen was well supplied. The pool table was most appreciated as well as the pit in the back of the house. The only negative is getting in and out of the driveway at the top of the incline.

Great house close to things to do. Great view! Taylor-Made is a wonderful company to work with. We rented a pontoon boat and jet skis and had a wonderful time. Restaurants, park access, groceries, rental boats, jet skis, movie theater, arcade, putt putt, go karts, zip line & ropes course all within a couple miles. Second fridge in the garage was helpful with our group of 16. Love seeing and hearing the wildlife! Lots of deer, turkeys and chipmunks around. We used everything at the house except the shuffleboard and fireplaces. Good beds as well. I've never slept on a good pull out couch mattress, so I was prepared and brought my own pillow top from home that I put on top and it worked great. I don't think many adults would be comfortable on the 2 pull out beds. But kids would probably be fine. One pull out couch is located in the living room on the main level and the other is in the lower level. The couch in the lower level is a big L shape and 2 people can sleep on it without opening the pull out bed. Check out the restaurant Moodshadow for a great variety of yummy food and drinks! Very happy with everything overall!
Only criticism was that while there were six bedrooms as described, we had understood that up to 14 people could stay at the house. The truth is that the house is designed for six couples to stay (each bedroom had a full, queen, or king sized bed). One of our guests ended up sleeping on the couch as none of the bedrooms had single/twin beds. It was fine, but I wish the description had been clearer about that.
Otherwise it was a lovely stay and we can't wait to visit again.

12 of us came to celebrate my wife's birthday. The home was warm and wonderful. The views were spectacular and the hot tub was lovely. We grilled on the first night. It snowed on Saturday and hanging out in the hot tub felt positively luxurious.

Awesome house. Living room had a great feel to it; large tables and kitchen island with huge open space and loft hallway made everyone feel connected on both upper floors; bottom floor was a great getaway if you wanted to catch a sports game or play billiards. Also, there is a fire pit out back. Hot tub was large. Two car garage as well. Overall great, would absolutely rent again.

Perfect place to celebrate my 50th birthday. This was my 1st time in Deep Creek, and we had so much fun. There was about 5 inches of snow on the ground when we arrived and it was still snowing. The driveway was plowed for us, a walkway was shoveled to the front door, and shoveled on the deck so we could get to the hot tub. Scenic- absolutely, overlooking the lake. Board game there for us to play, cozy downstairs. Thank you!

Very well organized. Everyone was friendly and more than willing to answer any questions, anytime. Receiving email reminders and info, of course using the app for other info, worked out perfectly.
The new dining room table and chairs are massive. The chairs are almost too heavy to reposition and are from the trendy firm, Magnolia Farms.
Over the last two years there has been new furniture in the living room as well. It is stylish and comfortable. However, there is seating in that area for only six people. We thought another chair or two would be nice. It formerly had an ottoman that was used for seating purposes.
Overall we have been extremely happy with Scenic Overlook. It is well maintained and suits our needs by having six bedrooms and two sleep sofas resulting in separate sleeping for eight individuals.

Our group of eight spend a weekend at Scenic Overlook for the fourth year in a row. It has wonderful views of the lake and is quite comfortable for us. Since last year the kitchen appliances have been updated and the ice-maker in the frig is appreciated as well as the quiet, new dishwasher.

We rented this place to celebrate three milestone birthday parties and several others that fell in September, too. The house is simply beautiful and its views are stunning. The pics do an injustice to what is actually there. We felt at home the moment we stepped inside and everyone in my family had a wonderful experience. We had a small black bear that came on the driveway to inspect our cars. That was extraordinary. The only downside was that we ran out of fuel for the grill.
"Scenic Overlook" stood by its name, wow was this beautiful. Views from every room and the double decks were perfect for entertaining.
Thank you to the owners for sharing this gem with us.

A+ This was the perfect rental. From the moment we arrived we were stunned by the view and layout of the house. Everything you could need for a great weekend in Deep Creek. Movies, games, hottub, pool table, top of the line appliances, garage parking, you name it this place has it. I would highly recommend staying here. The bedrooms were laid out perfectly as was fresh towels to shower. Plenty of dish-ware and utensils.

This is a beautiful location and a wonderfully accommodating vacation rental unit.
- Alexander M. from Pittsburgh, PA, Posted: 05/10/2017
Our stay was excellent. The view was fantastic and the house beautiful. The only issues we had we getting the dishwasher to run properly and some of the outside wooden panels were broken off the deck before we arrived, apart from that it was a most excellent stay.

This is the 2nd time we have rented Scenic Overlook. We stayed over President's Day weekend. The house is awesome, has lots of rooms and amenities...something for everyone. We were hoping for snow, but it was very warm at 60+ degrees. But that was ok because it made for a beautiful, clear view of the lake and crisp hikes around the neighborhood. I would recommend some type of window treatment on the windows in the master bedroom through. It's an awesome room, but would be nice to have a little darkness as an option. Overall a great house!

This is the 7th year that we have stayed at Scenic Overlook. Prefect weekend getaway for friends! Fits our group of 12 perfectly. Will be back again next year!
- Jill H. from Export, PA, Posted: 11/08/2016
The house and view were both beautiful. There was plenty of space to accomodate several couples on our weekend stay. While we could have used a few more bath and kitchen towels, no one had any real complaints about the home. The hot tub and deck were a big selling point for us. We would definitely stay here again!
- John S. from Baltimore, MD, Posted: 10/04/2016
There were 14 of us and we had an excellent time. The property was nice. Only small issue we had was not realizing that the property was not actually AT the lake shore. Hampered our fishing a bit but otherwise great.

Property was clean, well stocked, and well appointed. Our group of guys loved the shuffleboard table in the loft area upstairs. Plenty of room for a big group and beautiful views of the lake. Would stay again!
It was just as described and great for big groups. Lots of light flooding the house.
Nice to have two fantastic master bedrooms to choose from. The King master has a lot of natural light, perfect for early morning risers. The other has a large bathroom. Both are great.
We loved being able to grill outside, plenty of space to hang out. Comfy beds and clean bathrooms. All around great!

Our group loved this place. I wanted to stay out on the deck for as long as possible enjoying the peaceful scenic view. We got to watch a meteor shower at night and enjoy the hot tub.

It was a lovely house and our large family fit right in. The sofa bed in the basement was not comfortable by any means but the kids didn't mind sleeping on the floor in sleeping bags. There was plenty of room for the kids to play inside and the back yard was great for corn hole and s'mores at the fire ring. The walk to the community play area was convenient and we used the Garret County Community College aquatic center several times. It is a great swimming pool for all level swimmers.

This has been one of the best rental properties that we have stayed!!!
- Regina P. from Henrico, VA, Posted: 12/29/2015
It was an amazing experience. Everyone was well accommodated. We enjoyed the overlook of the lake and our time in the hot tub. Although we ran out of gas for the grill we were accommodated fairly quickly. Overall, it was a great time had by all.
