Description

DESCRIPTION: 
Looking for the ultimate private vacation retreat? Travel down the gravel roads and up the mountain and through the trees to arrive at Bracken Lodge. A stunning log home siting on 11 acres of forest, meadow, and amazing open space – with mile-long views across to the peaks of Meadow Mountain. With spruce logs brought from Yellowstone National Park as part of a salvage program, this home is truly one-of-a-kind at Deep Creek Lake. The private and secluded outdoor space marries to a superbly appointed interior for a wonderful place to lay your head, lift your feet, and enjoy the beauty of Deep Creek! Whether you are gathering inside or out there is space and entertainment for everyone. Open living spaces, plush beds, a stunning wood fireplace on the main level, gas fireplace on the lower level, and a loft workspace (perfect for teleworking!) adorn the inside of the home while an expansive deck, jaw-dropping meadow views, and beautifully stamped patio with a hot tub await outside. Not enough for you? Hook up your phone to the Bluetooth speakers to add the perfect music to any situation inside or outside the home. Or travel down to the lake access to launch your kayak, canoe or paddle-board in the serene no-wake cove on Deep Creek Lake. Have a picnic by the water before returning home and watching for wildlife along the way. Just 15 minutes to the main hub of the lake, Bracken Lodge is the perfect place if you are looking for a private retreat still close to all the action of the area!

This lodge in the woods was an amazing place to stay! The lodge is situated in the optimal spot for any vacationer looking for the perfect spot! It is close enough to the lake to enjoy the water, yet tucked into the woods enough to avoid an noise or disturbances... It is just a short distance away from all the lake attractions! This lodge was the absolute best vacation rental we have stayed at yet, here on Deep Creek Lake. My family and I have stayed in many rentals around the lake, and never have we had a rental so clean. The view from the back deck overlooking the little meadow is perfect for seeing wildlife, and the firepit outside tucked in next to the lodge, makes amazing memories! All and all, Bracken Lodge made a great family vacation! Our family will definitely be back for another stay!

Hi Chris! We appreciate you taking the time out to leave us with your feedback. It's wonderful to hear that you had such an amazing time with us and that the home was all you had expected and more. We also love hearing that you were able to experience the beautiful views and wildlife here at Deep Creek. We look forward to seeing you again soon! Madison, Railey Vacations

Bracken Lodge was fabulous! The home was comfortable for our group of 8 - having so many bathrooms was very convenient. Our family enjoyed the hot tub and we had many meals around the large dining room table. Every morning we were treated to local wildlife - turkeys and deer were in abundance. We rented kayaks and drove them down to the community ramp. The fire pit was nice - we spent a few nights out there having real conversation and making s'mores. The home is very well-stocked with cookware, dishware, cups, glasses and flatware. We made use of the crockpot and electric griddle which are surprising to find in a holiday home. Wifi and streaming tv's worked wonderfully. We enjoyed everything about this home. It helped that the weather was cooperative during our trip - cool and breezy mornings/evenings - and it warmed up (but not too much!) during the day. I recommend this home highly and can imagine it's spectacular in the fall with all of the surrounding trees. Thank you to the owners for making their home available for a relaxing holiday! And thank you Railey's for the ease of booking and availability of staff when we had a question. We were sad to leave and could have easily stayed longer.

We appreciate you taking the time out to leave us a great review Christopher! We are thrilled to hear that Bracken Lodge had everything you had expected and that the amenities and home were well equipped! Hoping to have the opportunity to rent to you again in the future! Madison, Railey Vacations

I cannot say enough positive things about how lovely this home is. I felt like a little kid waking on Christmas morning when we walked in. It's a beautiful home, tastefully decorated, and very well equipped. The bedrooms and bathrooms are quite large and provide ample space, except the tiny showers. The views from the great room are truly enchanting. Our family had a wonderful experience at Bracken Lodge.
