I have already reviewed our specific cabin but realized that unless you know cabin numbers none of these reviews show up when doing a search. The lodges are near Deep Creek Lake and Wisp ski resort. The lodges themselves are not located lakeside but on the other side of 219 and there is no lake access from them. The lodges are modern, clean and beautifully built. The website is spot on when explaining the amenities in each lodge and some of these lodges can hold a lot of people plus some have hot tubs.. Ours was a 2 bedroom, 1 bath (sleeps 6). Contains a main room with king bed, gas fireplace, tv, a small dining table, dresser plus the kitchenette area and a very small 2nd bedroom with 2 bunkbeds and a tv. It is advertised as a hotel suite with a lodge experience which really means you get one roll of toilet paper and paper towels along with 4 bath towels with wash clothes but nothing else ....so come prepared!!! We were told over the phone that soap/shampoo etc was provided but if you read the website carefully you will see that is not the case.
The king bed was very comfortable but the bunk beds are not so. I guess that's why the kids get them.
The back deck is very small. On the upper level lodges there is a common area behind the back decks with 2 BBQ grills and 2 firepits. These are common area items but we found that the rental units where the BBQs and firepits were located was being claimed by the adjacent rental unit.. We even got reported to the management office for using their "space." There really should be a sign stating these are common area items especially because other than your lodge room microwave there is no way to cook over heat. We found the grills in constant use during the busy times but had bought our portable gas grill with us (not supposed to) and used it. Having only 2 bbqs grills in an area that could potentially have 150 people staying in it seems rather ridiculous. The lower level lodges have to climb a steep set of stairs to use the grills. Also the lower lodges have no back deck. As far as views the upper level has a view of the lake but it seems the lower level lodges do not.
As in other reviews we found problems upon check-in: a broken tv, a spotted bedspread and a broken deck light. We reported them the next morning and they were fixed that same morning (remember this is a rural area so get ready for some aggravation.) The cable never did work with all the channels...too much interference ....however the Wi-Fi was great!
Definitely not a long term stay option unless you are eating out a lot or gone to friend's houses to eat. There is nothing around the immediate area for children to do except play in the rocks between the cabins or in the very tight tthruway between the parking spaces on either side. Definitely not a romantic getaway unless you have to stay in your cabin and you are happy with that. Even the private hot tubs are in sight of the roadway or in view of common areas. The area is very quiet and is a respite from busy days and people.
I give it 4 stars because the cabins are very nice and as long as you know what you are getting and it fits what you need ....than it is great. These lodges are fairly expensive and without a lot of amenities you are really paying for the very nice and new lodge room experience.
