Description

3rd NIGHT FREE FOR SPRING!

Make Wonderful Memories at The Mac Shack! This charming home is right on the shores of Deep Creek Lake!

As you drive up to this home, Deep Creek Lake is visible above the roof line and gives just a sneak peak of how close you are to the water’s edge. The front door, surrounded by colorful stone, beckons you to start your vacation. A warm and comfortable great room with a massive fireplace, leather furniture, flat screen TV, and wood and stone accents greet you – you have arrived! As your eye takes in the cathedral ceiling and skylights, the all season room with a gorgeous view of the lake catches your attention. Sit, back, relax, and enjoy the view no matter the season in the plush recliners or sip your morning coffee at the café table. Off the great room lies the kitchen and dining area which has a striking centerpiece fireplace, an exquisite water view, and all the amenities you would expect in a lake front home. With stainless steel, granite, and lots of character, it will be easy to feed everyone while making memories around the spacious dining table. Just down the hall discover peaceful relaxation in a cozy bedroom suite with a private spa like bath and lake side balcony. The main level is finished with a convenient half bath and laundry area.

Upstairs offers an open loft perfect for taking in the wooded lake view, reading, or reflecting on your Deep Creek Lake adventures. Four uniquely decorated bedrooms and two full baths give everyone a place to call their own during the stay. Peaceful slumber will not be hard to find!

Access to the lake is the main feature of the lower level with two glass doors leading out to the lake side patio. However, when night falls or if the weather is not so nice, a large sectional surrounds a media center perfect for lounging, napping, or cuddling during movie time. Entertain all ages with ping pong and air hockey tables, plus a small table with games and a secret room of toys! A full bath and a bonus room with two full futons for additional sleeping space is located off the recreation room.

Venture outdoors to find multiple lake side decks complete with a propane gas grill, large picnic table, a stone firepit surrounded by benches, and a private hot tub on the covered patio. A gently sloping grassy yard leads to a private boat dock just for your water toys. A paved driveway on the road side of the home provides space for vehicles and a boat or jet ski trailer.

They say location is everything. The Mac Shack sits along iconic Deep Creek Drive inside the radius of most of the resort activities and amenities. With so many restaurants, shops, marinas, and unique experiences close by, not to mention the ski slopes and golf courses just across the lake, this home is in the perfect proximity to everything as the main highway through the lake is just two-tenths of a mile away.

The Mac Shack is waiting for your lake vacation – plan your stay today and get away to the mountains!

President's Day Weekend 2018

The overall experience was great. We had a nice weekend with friends in a very accommodating home.

Of note:
- Due to a combination of rain and melting snow, there was a leak coming from the north skylight in the main-floor family room. We noticed this leak on our final morning in the home.
- Also, using the shower in the south upstairs bathroom appears to cause a leak in the broom closet next to the kitchen.

These issues did not cause us any problems or negatively affect our stay, but we thought we should make you aware of them for future guests.

Overall this is a great lakefront location with plenty of space for a large group. The kitchen is large, the home had lots of areas to congregate, and the basement game room was great fun for adults and kids in our group. Where I think the property could improve is the following: there were many dirty dishes in the kitchen cupboards. By dirty I mean dishes that weren't washed well, had residue on them. We ended up washing MANY of the kitchen dishes just to feel like we had a clean set of dishes to work with. This applies to a lot of the tupperware and pots and pans. I think the management company could do better at monitoring what goes back into the cupboards after each stay. We read in prior reviews that for the big kitchen it is, there was not a ton of pots, tupperware, etc. I think it was adequate, but probably could have been equipped a little better in terms of quality of pots and pans, mixing/prep bowls, tupperware, etc. Overall (and aside from dishes inside the kitchen cupboards), the place was very clean. We did enjoy our stay in this home and found it to be quiet, peaceful, with beautiful views of the lake. One last thing - this home does sit on a channel that does get a fair amount of jetstki and boat traffic. There is a boat rental place on the same channel. It makes it really convenient to rent a boat. It also means there is some traffic going by, and in our experience we had to warn swimmers to pay close attention to the boat traffic. There were a couple of times the jetskis got uncomfortably close to the dock. This not the fault of this home - but it is something to consider if you plan on doing a lot of swimming in the lake near the dock. Final thing - it was very easy to get checked in/out of the property and there was good communication in advance from the management company.

Great fun filled family vacation

We took our three boys and one of their friends to this great vacation home for a relaxing week. We were supposed to be a much bigger group and the house had accommodations for many more than ended up going. The house was clean, beautiful and had great amenities. The rental company was very helpful and gave great tips on places to rent a boat and fish. We would definitely recommend this property and the rental agency to anyone looking for a great quiet place to vacation. We especially enjoyed renting a pontoon boat for the day with a tube to pull the kids. The staff at Bill's marina were very helpful with that process. We enjoyed a very nice dinner out at Deep Creek Seafood - a new place that is a must for great seafood. And we had a black bear in the back yard within 2 hours if arriving. That was a site! All in all great, relaxing family vacation. Would definitely go again! Thanks to Deep Creek Lodging!

The house on the whole was very clean, tidy and provided sufficient amenities. The linens and towels were fresh and clean. There were plenty of dishes, glassware, cutlery and silverware for our group of 11, however, it lacked somewhat in cookware. There was only one large pot and no baking sheets/pans. The small throw rugs in the two upstairs bathrooms looked to be filthy but that may have been due to the fact that they need to be replaced. Not sure on that. I took a picture but cannot put in this review. Also, the main floor half bath really needs to have a blind or curtain on the large window next to the commode. My only big complaint was that the outside decks were pretty dirty and FULL of cobwebs. Would have been nice to have them been blown free of all the debris and sitting outside would have been a little more enjoyable. There also could have been a little nicer deck furniture other than the big old rough picnic table and benches. Also, dirt would come down into the hot tub from the deck above when it rained, wind blew or someone walked onto the deck. We put a large piece of visqueen down to prevent that but again had the decks been clean it would have been avoided. We loved the easy access to the water/dock, the fire pit/firewood, the use of the hot tub and the view of the lake from the house was spectacular! Being so close to boat rentals, restaurants, shops and the grocery store was a HUGE plus. Deep Creek Lodging responded to any needs we had very promptly and courteously. Overall, our week’s stay at The Mac Shack was very enjoyable and even though we only had one day of sun, we were entertained and satisfied.

Great Trip!

This place was perfect for a group of 10 friends looking for a getaway. The kitchen table is large enough for everyone to sit around and same with the downstairs couch. It's right on the lake and so easy to get to from 219. Everything was clean and as described. The only complaint I had was that some of the bedrooms and bathrooms didn't have blinds (or they were broken) or door locks. Neither was a deal-breaker, but still not ideal. (Hence my 4 stars for the general condition.)

I have been to Deep Creek for the past five years with the same group and we all agreed that this was our favorite house out of the five. I highly recommend!

We had an excellent experience. We love the home, the size, the flexibility of space, the extra mattresses, and the quality of the ameninties.

Please note that we detected a couple of possible issues that might warrant attention. These issues did not cause any problems for us at all, but I thought that the owner might like to be made aware.

(1) There may be a small roof leak coming from the north skylight in the great room. It was quite rainy on Saturday, and we felt a drip or two from the light and noticed a very small area on the floor beneath the skylight with a small amount of water.

(2) A guest also felt a drip in the broom closet off the kitchen and thought it might have come been related to a leak from the plumbing from the south bathroom upstairs.
Manager response on 2017-03-07 - Response from Deep Creek Lodging Company
Thank you for your feedback, and we are glad you enjoyed your stay! We will certainly investigate and address any possible leaks. Again, thank you for reporting this issue, and we hope you will stay with us again!

In general, this was an excellent weekend vacation spot. The house was easy to find, spacious, and well-maintained. The kitchen amenities were good for large groups. The proximity to the lake was right on target. And when we had issues with the hot tub, someone came out to inspect it within two hours. We'd definitely consider staying here again.

While we didn't have complaints, we did have a couple observations. Some of the items were a bit rough around the edges or not functioning up to par (gaming equipment falling apart, hot tub cover trailing styrofoam, etc). Shoring up those details would make this a five-star stay across the board.

We loved the location of this property. The house was generally nice except for the 1. An up stairs bedroom had NO drawerers to put your clothes.
The lower level had a musty smell.

A Beautiful View on the lake ,plenty of things to do in the Deep Creek area.
The house has a lot of room for a big family to still have space for individual

We really enjoyed our stay at the Mac Shack! It was fully equipped for all the families. We all enjoyed the gorgeous lake view, fire place every night, fire pit for s'mores and the relaxing hot tub. Tons of fun for kids in the basement. Enjoyed the different gathering rooms in the house. The large kitchen table allowed all of us to gather for fun card games and lots of laughs! We will always remember our time at the Mac Shack! We had a small problem with the temp in fridge upon arrival but the property management was quick to send someone out to fix right away. Very professional and quick service!
