Property Description

Deep Creek Lake is listed in 1,000 PLACES TO SEE BEFORE YOU DIE! (US and Canada)

Looking for a getaway in Maryland? The Birds’ Nest is a tastefully decorated, romantically secluded lake-view vacation home at Deep Creek Lake, Maryland. It’s an enchanting choice for a special occasion: honeymoon, wedding anniversary, girls’ weekend, or just a quiet escape.

Summer rentals run from Sunday to Sunday.

You bring your lovebird; The Birds' Nest will provide the atmosphere!

Nestled among tall oaks and lush rhododendrons, this tastefully decorated, 2-bedroom home is conveniently located at 296 State Park Road for year-round accessibility. It is 0.6 miles from Deep Creek Lake State Park and approximately 6 miles from The Wisp Ski Area. The charming little town of Oakland is about 5 miles away.

The lakefront, across the road from the property, offers one of the best views of the lake — the sunsets and star-watching are magical! You may swim or launch your kayak from here, though there is no dock facility.

The downstairs of The Birds' Nest has a well-equipped kitchen, one bathroom, a living room with a propane fireplace insert, a study area with WiFi access for your laptop computer, and a bedroom (double bed). Upstairs is a large bedroom (queen-size bed and a futon) with a sitting area overlooking the woods, a walk-in closet, a half-bath with washer and dryer, and a surprise nightlight! A flat-screen television with satellite connection, a DVD player (with video library), and a CD player are located in the living room downstairs.

High-quality bed linens and towels are supplied at no extra charge; bring your own toothbrush!

Relax in the sunken hot tub in a very private resort-like setting after a day of outdoor activities.

Enjoy the landscaping and seasonal waterfall on the property.

The deck offers a view of the lake and has a picnic table with a gas grill. There is a fire-ring outside The Birds’ Nest for toasting marshmallows and telling tall tales!

We welcome your house-trained family dog, too. Fee required per animal. There is a new dog park beside the HART For Animals facility in McHenry which is free for use.

Wild animals love this location and visit regularly. We do ask, however, that you do not feed the bears!

Our goal is to fulfill the need for a superior rental vacation home that is not a “McMansion”! The house is 900 square feet of well-planned space with high-quality furnishings. It sleeps four people comfortably, with separation between the bedrooms for privacy.

Nice little getaway!

Thank you Polly for letting us stay in the Bird's Nest! We had a great relaxing quiet time. Although the cold/rainy weather didn't cooperate, it was exactly what we needed to disconnect from the everyday routine. This place has everything you may need and more. And talk about that hot tub!!! It doesn't get any more romantic than being with your hon... Read More

Relaxing escape

We enjoyed our peaceful 2 night escape at the Bird’s Nest. Excellent location, and the comfy cabin has everything you need and is well cared for by the owner Polly. I will miss my morning coffee with a view. Will definitely return.

Quaint, Relaxing, Beautiful Cottage!

We enjoyed a peaceful Labor Day weekend at the Bird's Nest. It was joy to meet Polly and her dog Maggie. We walked our dog to the state park and even did some fishing. We sat around the fire in the evening roasting marshmallows and then relaxed in the hot tub before bed. The beds were so comfortable! The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare... Read More

Excellent Stay and Amazing View!

The Bird's Nest is fantastic! It's a great little home, and perfect for the group we had - 4 adults and 2 pups! Polly was a great host and even let us use her kayaks. We were able to launch them across the street, which was extremely convenient. I would definitely recommend the Bird's Nest again. We'll certainly try to rent again if we come back to... Read More

Great little place! Very homey!

Loved the Bird's Nest. Polly was the best hostess and the cabin was fully equipped. We didn't need a thing. Enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit! Looking forward to our next trip!
