Vacation Rentals

The Deep Creek Lake area offers plenty of vacation properties -- cabins, town homes, and mountain chalets -- for rent by the week or in 2- and 3-day intervals. They come in all sizes, from a two-bedroom lakeside cottage or slopeside town house to eight-bedroom behemoths with extra everything (fireplaces, hot tubs, decks, boat slips, and even ski-in/ski-outs are available). Many allow pets. They generally come with all the linens, appliances, and tools you'll need. Most homes are individually owned and rented through agencies. Reputable ones are Railey Mountain Lake Vacations (tel. 866/544-3223;, Long & Foster Resort Vacation Rentals (tel. 800/336-7303;, and Coldwell Banker Deep Creek Realty (tel. 410/387-6187;
