Description

DESCRIPTION:
Welcome to Knotty Bear Cabin, a spacious (pet-friendly) home ready for your vacation! The cabin is nestled in the Gravelly Run area right off Route 219, just a stone’s throw from the many offerings (Aquatic Center, Shops at Deep Creek Lake, Wisp, dining, entertainment) that the Northeast side of Deep Creek Lake has to offer. 

The cabin's open floor plan of the living room with large Roku TV and gas fireplace is comfortable and inviting for cozying in after a day on the lake or slopes. Have your morning coffee/tea on the front porch, a casual breakfast at the island, and dinner at the large eight-person dining table!

The space in this two-bedroom home offers flexibility in sleeping arrangements – a king bedroom equipped with a Roku TV on the first floor adjoins a large full bathroom with a separate shower and jacuzzi tub. On the second floor, an airy loft opens to the living room and can offer a seating area (or extra sleep space with the queen-sized sleeper sofa) or play space to accommodate your needs, while the large second bedroom boasts another king-sized bed with twin bunk beds and Roku TV.

Walking through the breezeway of this home into the garage, have some family fun at the ping pong table or take the stairs above the garage to a hidden game space with a shuffleboard table, foosball table and extra living room/den area complete with another Roku TV. Bonus – the noise made in the game room can’t be heard in the main living room, offering relaxation in the main house while the kids (0-99) play! 

After a long day of fun, make s'mores and hang out by the campfire, or take a relaxing soak in the seven person hot tub, and make some memories at Knotty Bear Cabin!

First the staff at Railey was great! Booking was easy over the phone and the person I spoke with was cheerful and accommodating. The house was 6 stars! Everything was great! We've been visiting for 20 yrs or more and stayed many places and this house was top 2 or 3. Nice quiet location and close to everything. Everything you want or need this house has it. We were able to bring our dogs too!! They loved running around the house outside!! Definitely recommend.
