“What?”
Reviewed 16 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Great place. Had a blast. Only problems old lines in kitchen in bags and no knew ones yet i paid for linens. And if you get 4 large people in hot tub no hose to refill. Other than that. Beutiful. May make it a yearly tradition. Thanks for having us. 4.5 stars.

“Great for larger groups”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We traveled to Deep Creek in May 2016 with 9 adults and 2 children. This rental was very nice. We really appreciated the 3 bathrooms and multiple bedrooms. It had lots of space and even room at the dinner table for everyone. It was a short drive to McHenry where all the commercialized things are. They do have dock access although we did not use it. We wish it had more shrubs to increase privacy but we didn't have any issues with neighbors. Our overall opinion of the lake was mediocre mainly due to the fact that we had small children who couldn't participate in what the lake had to offer. We would stay again, maybe when the kids are older.

Very impressed by the condition of the home and the cookware. Most times, rental have poor quality kitchen gadgets but not this one.

Thanks for your kind review of our house and for taking such good care of it. We are sorry that the previous tenants had left it so messy that you could not get in on time. We always try to keep if well equipped. Please plan to come again when the kids are a little older.

“Cross Country Ski Trip”
Reviewed 10 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Six of us stayed at the White Oak Lodge for a couple of nights (2 adults and 4 scouts) so that we could go cross country skiing nearby. The place was very clean and roomy, and we certainly could have fit at least another 4 boys. The boys loved the wii and the wifi, and we also made use of the hot tub and fire pit. There was also plenty of room to play outside at night in the snow.

“Very nice place”
Reviewed 20 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed over a weekend with our friends at this place. It was a very nice, clean and cozy cabin. The reason that I am not giving a 5 star rating to this place is because of a minor issue that we had with the hot tub. On our second day, we needed to refill the hot tub and there was no hose in the cabin. We were instructed to fill out the hot tub using a big trash can (a fairy clean one ...). We eventually were able to make it but a hose for such circumstances is really needed at the cabin. Everything else was fine, we will definitely consider staying at this cabin for our next vacation.
