“Pharmacist Retreat”
Reviewed 14 June 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Overall very satisfied with the property. The rooms were all very well decorated, clean, and spacious. Laurie was a great host and was always accessible (via text and email) to any questions that arose. As an added bonus, she included a list of activities/ recommendations near the area and a curtesy k-cup supply for our large group. While I was initially hesitant regarding close proximity to the neighbors, our group was able to maintain our privacy without any problems. The hot tub and pool were cleaned daily; however, the pool alarm system was a bit bothersome. I would have to say that my favorite feature was the open nature of the upstairs area. It was a great space to entertain 20 people comfortably and brought everyone together. I recommend this rental to anyone with a large family or group looking for a comfortable and spacious rental.

“Great house for a huge family!! ”

This house had plenty of room for the 16 of us. I loved that we were all able to sit at one table each night for dinner & the indoor pool was one of the best features of the house!! Everyone used it & the jacuzzi was so relaxing at the end of the day. The kitchen was huge & we definitely loved having the two refrigerators & dishwashers!! Whenever we had a question Laurie the owner responded quickly & was so great during the whole process, from the first phone call I had with her when we were Interested in renting it, until after we all got home & she reached out to make sure our stay was great! I highly recommend renting this house.

“A nightmare due to bedbugs”
Reviewed 27 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We arrived at Highland Manor on 5/12/16 for a 3 night stay. The property was spacious and provided the amenities as stated. However, after the first night a few of us discovered bite marks on us and we casually dismissed it as mosquitos. By the next morning more of us had been bitten and the bumps were very red and extremely itchy. We began to suspect bedbugs. Our suspicions were confirm as we pulled back the top mattresses. OMG! There they were. We immediately called management who gave us large plastic bags to put our items into to take to the laundromat. We requested to be moved into another property and they refused to do so. We had been planning for this trip since reservations were made in February. There were 20 of us including children that had plans for more happy memories in Deep Creek. However, it turned into a nightmare which traumatized us days later. We had to get shots for allergic reactions and bacterial infections from the scratching. Please inquire with management prior to your arrival to see if the property has been professionally treated before you check in. We will not be returning to DCreek. I felt that management could have been more accommodating and moved us to another home so that we could resume our vacation.

Dear Valued Guest,

We deeply regret your encounter with bed bugs during your stay. As the management company we are trained to carefully assist the guests, and ensure proper treatment is followed through to completion. Although it does not occur often, it is a very unpleasant experience for guests and we sincerely apologize. We strive for a worry free vacation for all our guests and are very sorry we were not able to provide this for you.

For this reason we have provided a full reimbursement for your vacation. The home has received a full extermination from a professional pest control company and received positive guest feedback since this happened.

Again we offer our apologies. We hope that you and your family will be able to return to Deep Creek Lake another time for a more pleasant and enjoyable experience.

“Great Place to spend away with a large family!”
Reviewed 22 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Twenty family members stayed at Highland Manor for a holiday getaway right after Christmas. While most of us came from Ohio, there were family from Texas, Georgia, & Florida. There was plenty of room to spend every meal together and play games or just hang out but also plenty of space to spread out and have privacy as well. We went for a ski trip but it was so warm there was no snow, but having a house like Highland Manor to stay in, it did not matter. Most of the family was able to go zip-lining, they came back with some great stories. They also went on the mountain coaster at Wisp Resort just down the hill from the house. The house was clean and spacious. The kitchen is generously stocked with all sizes of pots and pans, coffee makers, even a crock pot. We did not have to bring anything except food. We cooked every meal in the huge kitchen and spent time talking and catching up with family around the large table and open area. The family enjoyed challenging each other in games of pool and foosball, spent time watching the football games on Sunday together, we played board games in the evenings and people could retire to their bedrooms as they wanted. The room with the swimming pool was also a great place for some family to hang out as well as the covered hot tub just a couple steps outside the pool room on the deck. It was cold outside but the hot tub felt so nice and just 2 or 3 steps into the warmth of the pool room, we didn't have a chance to get cold. There are 6 bedrooms downstairs and 2 large bedrooms upstairs off the family room. Plenty of bathrooms for everyone. There were plenty of places to sleep. Some of the younger adults stayed up until the wee hours of the morning playing pool or hanging in the hot tub so some even decided to sleep on a couch or a couple of the guys slept in the warm pool room on the lounge chairs because it was so warm and relaxing! Our family had a wonderful time and the house is just beautiful. When we first arrived through the big wooden doors, we were in awe at the beauty. Everyone had to take the tour through the house before we even unpacked the cars. The only child that went was my 5 year old grandson and he loved the house and was sad to leave after four nights. We would definitely return for another vacation at Highland Manor in winter or summer! Laurie is so sweet, she was very helpful in planning our visit and kept in touch with us before and after our trip. We highly recommend Highland Manor!

“50th Wedding Anniversary celebration at Highland Manor a success!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We really enjoyed our week at Highland Manor celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary with family. Highland Manor is a beautiful home with a fantastic location which was perfect for our active family. In our travels around the lake we did not see a home or location we would have preferred. The large kitchen provided space for several people to work at the same time. Everyone took advantage of the pool table and foosball table-lots of competitions. The house is large enough to provide privacy for all. The swimming pool and hot tub were an extra bonus as well.
Our children arranged with a local caterer to prepare an anniversary dinner for us served right at the house. This was a perfect way to have a special dinner for the 7 adults and 4 young children.
The owner, Laurie Cohn, was delightful to work with. She answered all questions quickly and gave great suggestions about the many activities in the area.

“Tranquility nestled in the mountains of MD”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed with friends at this rental property twice---it's that good! We love the views, the large rooms, and location. It is easy to get to from the Washington, DC area. For those who want more than the pool, deck and hot tub at the house, Deep Creek has a lot to offer year round. I highly recommend it for weekend away or a vacation.
