The house was great for our family trip to Deep Creek. We had plenty of towels for each person, and each bedroom and bathroom was nice and clean. The kitchen is well stocked, although the knives should be replaced because they are bent and/or getting dull. The house was really quiet too despite being close to a main road. I would suggest curtains or something to block out some sun on the main floor. Although it's definitely living up to its Sunny Boy name, sometimes the sunshine streaming in is a bit overwhelming for the AC. Part of the problem was that 2 of the 3 AC vents on the main floor were blocked by furniture. It was extremely useful having a laundry area with a washer and dryer, although the door to the closet was broken when we arrived. It was really nice to have some "oh we forgot items" such as dishwasher detergent, sponge, paper towels, toilet paper, and bathroom soaps already there when we arrived. The grocery store is so conveniently located to the house, literally a 2 minute drive. A few boat rental places nearby were great too. A convenient gas station was also nearby which made going home a bit easier since we didn't have to hunt around for a station. The house is 5-15 minutes away from all sorts of awesome places to visit including Lakeside creamery (amazing ice cream), Brenda's pizzeria, Simon Pearce Glass Factory, Oakland farmers market, Swallow Falls State Park, Deep Creek State Park, Herrington Manor, Firefly Farms, and others. Overall the house was great, would absolutely recommend to friends and family to enjoy a very reasonably priced but worthwhile home to rent on vacation.

We all loved the house. It was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans. The beds were comfortable. We had a great time.

The house, view and location were a great choice for our adult family. Access to groceries and activities including the boat rental next door made life easy. Our only improvement would be to suggest a bigger TV as it would have improved our experience watching the World Cup and movies.

Stayed at Sunny Boy for a long weekend to attend my sons graduation from WVU. It was conveniently located with easy and quick access to 68. The house was perfect for our stay. We enjoyed the deck, pier and hot tub for a relaxing time. The large kitchen table was great to accommodate our large family. It was great not to have to take towels or linens with easy check in/ out. House was clean, spacious and nicely decorated. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Sunny Boy! Thanks for the memorable long weekend!!

We didn't realize the property was on a well travelled road until after we booked it, but it turned out to be more convenient. There were a few flaws but nothing to really complain about. Overall, it was a great house and happy we booked it.

We came early April hoping for sunshine and fishing but was hit with snow instead. That was our only disappointment. The property was very nice and spacious. It is well sticked with everything you need to have a wonderful time. The view of the lake is beautiful. Check in/out was extremely easy and convenient. The staff i spoke to very nice and helpful. We will certainly be back!!

We recently stayed at Sunny Boy during a very rainy weekend. The house was in a great lcation and was as described. The lifesaver was having access to the pool at GCCARC. We were able to make 4 little girls happy! The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, cooking utensils, and pans. We appreciated that there were small items ready for us such as trial size dish detergent, tissues and a dish washer tab. We had brought ours, but it was nice to know if we hadn't we were covered until a trip to the store could be made. The beds were made and towels were ready for us. Having stayed in this house before, my opinion is that it is showing some age - nothing that interfered with our stay, but some cabinets and shower heads need to be fixed/replaced. Overall, it is still a great place to stay.

Overall we were very satisfied with a house and had a wonderful time in a great location. The only recommendations I would make today owners are to get a larger TV in the living room and better TV and all the bedrooms. But the house met all our needs and the views of the slopes were great. We have already booked for next year. I would recommend this house to family and friends but really wish they would upgrade their TVs.

My partner and our dog plus my son and his family spent Christmas holiday at Sunny Boy. It was absolutely beautiful waking up every morning to the view of the lake and especially after the complimentary snowfall on Christmas Day. The house was spotless and had everything we needed. Lots of clean, fluffy towels and comfy beds. Two fireplaces and lots of room for the dog (a black lab) to explore. We didn't want to leave!!

Wonderful, relaxing, beautiful vacation home. We have been coming to DCL for vacation for more than 10 years. Sunny Boy is the perfect house for a relaxing summer lake vacation. Being able to hang out on the private dock and fish well into the evening is one of main reasons we keep coming back to Summy Boy.

Convenient to boat rentals, restaurants, grocery, and mini golf. Good backyard privacy. Decent furnishings. Kitchen and family room would be a small for a large family.

We enjoyed our stay at Sunny Boy, especially coffee on the deck overlooking the fantastic view of the lake. The panoramic windows and double sliding doors really bring the outside in. The floor plan was great with everything you need on the main level. There are only a few steps up to the door from the parking pad making unloading easy and ideal for the disabled or elderly. One additional master bedroom upstairs and two others downstairs accommodates larger groups so everyone has their own space. We enjoyed the hot tub and shooting a little pool as well as watching movies by the fireplace. It is also close to the main road and convenient to area restaurants, marina and activities -- but you felt private seclusion in the rear of the home. Overall, the property was clean, although a little outdated and worn, and we felt right at home. I wish we could have stayed longer!

We felt at home the second we walked into the great room! The house has a great layout, spacious and filled with light! The four legged family members also felt at home and loved the yard and lake access.

The experience was great. Gorgeous location, lovely house, very well-equipped. We were 4 adults and 3 children and the house served our needs very well. Overall a positive experience.
Success from Start to Finish!
Sunny Boy met and exceeded our expectations. The images on the website were accurate. There was good flow from the open kitchen dining living room layout. We all felt connected during our stay. While we were four couples on this trip the house could definitely sleep 6 more people comfortably and the linen services was supplied for this. The house is well kept and clean and in good working order. The kitchen was well stocked the beds were firm and the hot tub was in good working condition and heated up nicely during the below freezing temps. Overall a very positive and memorable experience for us with Sunny Boy. I would easily return to this location for future trips to Deep Creek! Thanks!
