Reviewed 30 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Rock Haul was an excellent vacation rental for us. This was our second Thanksgiving in the Deep Creek area in the past 6 years, and we enjoyed this home much more than the previous one. The kitchen and dining room were well stocked with pretty much everything we needed, even for our Thanksgiving dinner. The home itself was cozy and...

Management response:

Thanks for your kind review. We try to keep the house well stocked for a group of 12 to enjoy. We think this house has the best view of the lake.

Management response:

Thanks for your review. The buffer area around the lake is controlled by MD DNR and they do not allow any cutting of the vegetation, or we would have a better lake view. The view is not bad, and some vegetation helps to limit the boat noise.

About the neighbourhood
Rock Haul is located in a residential area on a peninsula in the North Glade Cove area of Deep Creek Lake, very near Deep Creek Lake State Park. Located nearby are Maryland's premier State parks: Swallow Falls, Harrington Manor, New Germany State Parks, and the beautiful and rugged Savage River State Forest. Wisp Ski Resort and Outdoor Adventure Center, including the whitewater course, are 15-20 minutes away. The lake is at an elevation of 2,500 feet, so it is generally much cooler in the mountains than in nearby cities, so you rarely need air conditioning. Many activities are available close by: boating swimming, fishing, skiing (cross country and downhill), horseback riding, biking, hiking, or just relaxing. Two parks are managed for cross country skiing in the winter: Harringto... more

How to get there
From points east, take I-70 west past Hagerstown and Hancock, bear left onto I-68 to Cumberland. Continue past Cumberland and Frostburg to the Grantsville/Swanton Exit (Rt. 495). Turn left toward Swanton, and continue for about 15 miles. Turn right onto Glendale Road (Rt. 22) – there is a sign to Deep Creek Lake State Park. Follow Glendale Rd. for about 3 miles and turn left onto North Glade Road. Take the next right at the fork onto Harvey’s Peninsula Road and go down by the lake. Once the road bends and goes past Bill’s Marine, look for the Harbor Community Association sign. The next driveway to left is ours (#815).
