Swallow Hollow Excellent Choice
Reviewed by: A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed for 0 days in September, 2014
We had a great time. Didn't know what to expect...Last minute booking.....LOVED IT!!! the place was extremely clean, plenty of sleeping arrangements, all updated appliances. The only problem was the water came from a well so it was hard to have everyone shower and do laundry, no water pressure. The outside amenities were fantastic, the hot tub, fire pit and amount of yard for the kids to play ball in were an extremely nice touch!!. Would definitely rent this cabin again. Highly recommend it!!!

We had a wonderful time in Deep Creek staying at Swallow Hollow. Perfect fit for my wife, 2 kids, dog and myself. The cabin was very clean and cozy. The location was great as we got to hike at Swallow Falls and attend the Deep Creek Dunk at the Honi which was very entertaining. Enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub after the days festivities. The Offlake rental company was also very hospitable. Thank you.

Perfect quiet family vacation
hon3434 from Pittsburgh, PA,
Stayed for 0 days in August, 2013
We really enjoyed our stay at Swallow Hollow. As a family with little ones, it was convenient to parks and beaches as well as restaurants and the Discovery Center. We were looking for a place that would also accommodate our dog, although we were surprised he was not allowed at some state parks. The house was very clean and Offlake Rentals made the check in and check out process super easy. They even surprised us with a little welcome bag and didn't forget about our pup! Bob was so helpful in figuring out the best rental for our needs. We didn't get a chance to use the hot tub but the kids and dog enjoyed running around the yard and the firepit nights. We would come back!

We were here in November and had the best time. It was our second trip to Swallow Hollow, and we will definitely be back again. The house is private and comfortable. The amenities are perfect for a group of friends who want to cook, enjoy the outdoors, soak in the hot tub, and sit around a campfire.

Our third visit to Swallow Hollow. If we go to this area again we will surely book another stay. The location is a quiet and comfortable. A short drive to the restaurants and the lake. Had a problem with the Spa Tub in the upstairs bathroom that the service company did not fix but they did fix a water problem in the kitchen sink. I will probably check on this before I book another trip.

Centrally located rental. Close to the state parks. Close to the public beaches. Close to the restaurants and shops. We had privacy but were within minutes of the state parks and beach. The rental was in great shape. Great amenities. Well maintained. A wonderful and relaxing way to spend a week with the entire family. We will definitely come back!!

Auutmn Glory Visitors from Sharpsburg, MD,

We stayed at Swallow Hollow for 5 days during autumn Glory 2011. The home is very clean and well maintained. The furnishings and decor are both attractive and comfortable. The kitchen is well-stocked with plenty of dishes, glassware and small appliances. The location is convenient to all the autumn Glory activities in Oakland and McHenry and is very near 2 state parks yet it is still very peaceful and quiet. The weather was cold and windy this year but it was nice to come back to the warm cozy house after shopping and siteseeing. The people at Offlake Rentals are great to deal with. We didn't have any issues at all. They were thoughtful enough to have a full bowl of water ready and waiting for my dog when we arrived at the house. There are many dog friendly activities in the area so he had a great time too.

Enjoyed our time at Swallow Hollow. It just as billed. Plenty room, nice setting, and very clean. Easy access to all activities. I'd also recommend calling Offlake rentals directly prior to booking a DCL spot. They were exremely helpful and friendly and guided me to the right home for the type of group I had.

We took our 3 teenagers and 2 big dogs with us and we had a great time! The only down side was after we arrived we found out we could not take our dogs into Harrington Manor and Swallow Falls parks (they are only 5 min. from house), only Labor Day-Memorial Day are dogs allowed, that was miscommunicated to us. We loved the Hot tub, fully stocked kitchen and cleanliness of the home...very comfy. A pool table would have topped the stay. The home is beautiful, quiet and the dogs also loved it!!

A quiet, calming, peaceful get-away.
LRM from Pittsburgh, PA,
Stayed for 0 days in July, 2011
The cabin is very well-maintained and exceptionally clean. The location is ideal for those who wish to get away and have a quiet time to simply relax. The kitchen is fully equipped, and the outside grill worked flawlessly. The only thing missing was a baking sheet or shallow baking pan that would have been helpful for some of the items we bought along to cook. The staff at OffLake Rentals were very accommodating and efficient. If you like to take short drives, the surrounding countryside along the scenic back roads that run through the state forests of Garrett County provide some awesome mountain vistas and forest views. Lots of deer and other wildlife were seen when we drove around. Having your own rental cabin provides privacy that a motel or hotel cannot; however this comes with a price, that we felt was well worth it.

This place was perfect for a single family. Me and my wife have 2 teenage daughters and one 2 year old son and we have been going on skiing trips for several years but usally with 2 to 3 other couples. This year when the other couples could not go we was not sure if we could afford a place by ourselves until we found this place and it was perfect for us.

Grad Students, looking for a get-away from Harrisonburg,
Stayed for 0 days in February, 2011
We had an absolutely wonderful vacation! The house was clean and check-in was so nice with the keyless entry! One of your realtors mentioned how the house was set back off the road, perfect for dogs; he was right on with that! Our two dogs had a great vacation too, plenty of chasing the ball in the snow, we went to Swallow Falls Park and they had steak! Swallow Hollow's amenities were a high point of the trip, especially the kitchen! We love to cook, and it was wonderful to have such a clean and updated kitchen. Mornings of french toast and for dinner scallops and stuffed mushrooms...mmm! We also enjoyed the hot tub and surround sound, giving us wonderful privacy and time to relax and just talk. The only issue we had was that the fireplace was not working, but not a deal breaker at all! The surrounding area was wonderful as well, we went to Jg's for lunch and beer one day, we went snow tubing at wisp and had a fantastic lunch at Mt. State Brewing (highly recommend) and a perfect dinner on our last night at the Cornish Manor. Overall we had exactly the vacation we had hoped for (which rarely happens, when all your expectations are met and exceded!) We hope to come back to the area in the summer when the lake is more active. Already in the works is a trip with another couple, and Swallow Hollow will be our first choice, along with Offlake rentals.

Helping a bride to relax and enjoy her wedding day!
A. Very Satisfied Howes from Eldersburg, MD,
Stayed for 0 days in October, 2010
We booked Swallow Hollow for my brothers wedding party. My goal was to have a place on Friday night that the bride and her wedding party could relax, get some rest but still feel special..even regal. This cabin was perfect. It was beautiful with plenty of room for everyone. They all enjoyed long baths in the soaking tub as well as drinks by the hot tub. She said it was amazing and since we own property near by and the wedding was there she was able to get ready at Swallow Hollow and not get involved in all the craziness of getting the wedding set up. It was also a great place for the whole wedding party to hang out after the reception and get changed. We have already started recomending it to family and friends who come to Oakland to visit us and we have plans to use it again, possibly next month. The only thing I would add is make sure to pack additional toilet paper, towls, and trash bags for your stay!

Our stay was very relaxing. Just what we wanted. A place not too far off the beaten path and with nice amenities. We enjoyed soaking in the hot tub, Also enjoyed the open kitchen and living area. The wood burning stove with a big window was a plus. Everything was well maintained and clean. Stacey at the rental agency was able to pro-rate the partial week, making the stay quite affordable. She also was very quick with getting us set up. What a pleasure she is.

We had a wonderful stay in your home. Everything was beautiful. The house, the city everything. The bed was the most comfortable bed that either of us have every stayed in and we loved hiking at swallow falls. The only complaint we have was that the hot tub was dirty with a ring of mud. Also you could use a curtain in the master bathroom.

Total Relaxation
Bud and Erma Kennedy from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina,
Stayed for 0 days in July, 2010
For the first time in many many years we had a vacation that was totally relaxing. The location was private yet close enough for restaurants and shopping with a 10 to 15 minute drive. My favorite was sitting on the porch and enjoying the cooler weather. My wife's favorite was the quiet location and the spa tub in the master bath. We are already planning a return visit in 2011. We loved the easy check in process. This was the first time we have ever rented a home for vacation. It most certainly won't be the last. This is much better than a hotel or a resort. A really great way to spend a week away from the South Carolina heat.

We loved the home very spacious and private we had 3ft of snow on the ground and 50 degree weather. We went on a romantic sleigh ride and then never left the cabin again. I would recommend this place to anyone, we want to bring the kids back for a summer getaway. The main bath is so nicely done with the tile and tub. The kitchen is huge with everything in it you need.We spent alot of time in the hot tub relaxing.The added bonus of the surround sound throughtout the whole house was great. My wife has me installing our own system now.

Loved this house! Everything was so new, and clean, and beautiful! The hot tub was especially nice for the family, particularly for the family members who participated in the Deep Creek Dunk that weekend. Amenities for all ages too, with video games in the loft upstairs. The weekend wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for the folks at Off Lake who worked hard to make sure the house was ready after 2 feet of snow fell the day before in one ot the biggest blizzards in many years! Got to walk to Swallow Falls and enjoy some of it's splendor in the winter-time. Looking forward to staying here again for next year's Dunk!

Great place to stay and relax. The hot tub is an excellent place to watch the deer at night. The location is great because you are close to the tourist stuff but far enough away to feel removed. If I had one suggestion it would be to offer (via email)last minute weekend deals at a discounted price. Anyone from Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Baltimore or the DC area could make this a last minute weekend getaway after a bad work week.

Fun girls weekend get away

this is the second time that my girlfriends and I rented this house. We like the fact that we know EXACTLY what we are getting. The house is has been very clean and comfortable both times we have stayed there. The only "problem" is that the upstairs gets a bit warmer than the downstairs-- we just turned the fans on and it cooled it down. The hot tub is very relaxing. All in all a great place to go to. I am sure we will be back again.

The place was beautiful and just the rigth size. Well stocked for cooking a Thanksgiving dinner for many. We however did have a disappointment in that the spetic system backed up, could not be fixed.

Our service was excellent, all the way through! Bob was friendly and very helpful, and despite the cold, the hot tub was very nice. The home in its entirety was warm and welcoming, and close to Swallow Falls and other state parks. It was a little off the beaten path, which is what I like, but still very close to civilization, only minutes from shopping and restaurants. Everything in the house was immaculate, well kept, and well organized. Wy wife and I were married at Swallow Falls and spent our days at Swallow Hollow. My only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!
