This was our first visit to Deep Creek Lake. The home was clean and welcoming, landscaped with lovely pink impatiens and red geraniums. It was a wonderful place for our multi generation family vacation. Our 80 + year old parents enjoyed the upper master suite. They felt pampered with the soaking tub and hand held sprayer. The grab bars and other handicap amenities were perfect for them. The more active members enjoyed the privacy of the lower level. Which has a mini fridge, sink, and microwave. In reading past reviews I can tell you the charcoal grill has been replaced and the kitchen was well equipped with plenty of utensils, including spatulas. The home is located about the middle of the lake and close to the state park boat ramp. Restaurants and grocery store are just a short drive. We had a great time and would definitely recommend staying here.
Having two master bedrooms on separate floors, each with their own full bathroom, is great for having others join us. Since we don't go out to eat and prefer to fix our own meals, the spacious kitchen with an openness to the dining room and living room make family gatherings convenient. Enjoy the lakeside views and time on the dock. Only drawback, simply due to the location on the side of a steep hill, is the very steep, short driveway down to the lower level parking next to the house.
Spacious and cozy rooms were a pleasant surprise when we arrived at Robins Nest. A fully stocked bright and clean kitchen was appreciated also. Beds were comfy and there was adequate closet and dresser space for your clothes. The boat dock was also great for fishing and sunbathing. All in all we really enjoyed ourselves.
We have stayed at Robin's Nest for six years now, so clearly it is a home we like since we continue to return. As time has passed, there have been a few things that we feel should be maintained. For example, the grill at the house is horrible. It's old, inexpensive, the bucket that catches the ashes was broken this year. Since most of the time is spent at the home and not at restaurants, and for the money you pay to rent this house we feel it should have a nicer, better functioning grill. The house is also missing a lot of kitchen utensils. Again, for the money you pay.. we feel like we should have what we need.. even the small things. We didn't have a single spatula, but we had four blenders for some reason. The location is wonderful, the yard is great, the private dock is on a great area of the lake. The owner keeps a large pontoon boat the dock however, which is large enough to block the breeze on the lake! If you dock your own boat too then you are left with only one side of the dock to really use for swimming. For us that meant our swim area was right next to the neighbors. Overall, we do like the house. There is a lot of room, and it is a good house for accommodating people with different interests. for example, having a TV in each room and on each living room area allows for kids of different ages to all have something to watch. The service from Long and Foster is sometimes sketchy. The rental agents are very nice, the property manager is a little curt. Which means if you need something while there, you can be left to feel like you are causing a problem.
Nice, comfortable home. Upper bedroom was perfect for older adult. Great fishing off the dock - due to cove location. Partially covered upper deck provided more outdoor time, even during showers. Sadly, many spiders and webs outside. Nice quiet location, but houses close in this cove. Beautiful view toward Southern end of the lake.
This was our 5th year to stay at Robin's Nest. Overall, we love the property, which is obvious since we keep coming back. This year we did have some issues though that were more disappointing. When we arrived, the house was like an ice box. The air conditioning had been set down to 50 degrees. The Hot Tub on the other hand had been jacked up over 110 degrees. I assume the people before us messed with these things, but we felt that the Long and Foster inspector should have found these things before we checked in. We had to have a service call to fix the hot tub as it had been locked into the high temp settings and couldn't be fixed by us. We lost 3 days of hot tub use b/c of this. While the rental office was friendly about it all, their response was more like "Oh that's funny that someone would do that". It really wasn't funny to us. One bed also had stained sheets. I believe the sheets were washed and clean but they had round brown stains on them. That's still gross. Fortunately we had an extra set of sheets and we changed them. Finally, this year there was a large pontoon boat docked at the house. We understand our contract does say that the owner's boat is docked at the house, but since the main reason for us coming to the lake is to use our boat it would be nice to have a center slip to dock the boat in, not have a gigantic boat there.. we tripped over the dock ties a couple of times, bumped into the platform that hangs over the dock. It basically limited our "play space" on the dock. Perhaps consideration to the cost of the house should be given if the dock can't be properly used. Despite these items, the house is clean, has nice lakefront for swimming and accommodates our family well. We still plan to return, just hope that next year is a little smoother.
We've stayed here several years and the home works well for us. This year, however, there were a few minor issues. - The pull out sofa bed was filthy when we unfolded it. There was candy, candy wrappers and a lot of food crumbs. We had to vacuum it out befor use. - The renters prior to use left three large, damaged water toys deflated on the deck and lakefront. We had to clean them up. - The prior renters also stacked a wall of stones and slate pavers in one of the beach areas by the dock. This would have taken a while to clean up, so we did not and therefore did not have use of that beach entry. - Maintenance workers arrived Saturday morning at 10:30 and, after knocking, open the lock and entered before we could get to the door. The thought we were checking out on Saturday rather than Sunday. The apologized, but questioned us aboutw whether it was truly a Sunday-Sunday rental. - Charcoal grill has a huge hole in the grate that holds the coals, which makes it tough to have full use of the cooking area.
The house was great and the staff and flexibility were even better
lovely home--just perfect for multi-generation family get together. The youngest thought they had their own private beach, and the grownups enjoyed the peace and quiet of the decks for eating and talking and relaxing. The proximity to Deep Creek Lake State Park was a real plus.
The home is in very good condition and very clean. Everything is there and ready to go. We had a great time, and will book for next year.
