Overview ↑↓

Relax your body and soothe your soul tucked in this country setting, minutes from Deep Creek Lake & WISP Ski Resort. Listen to the Hoot owl calling to you at night in the expansive forest surrounding this chalet. Rare will be the day you would NOT see deer, turkey, wild rabbits or other wildlife - they also enjoy the forested privacy surrounding this prestigious vacation home. An easy 10-15 minute drive and you are in downtown Oakland, Historic Swanton, or 1 of 3 State Forests (Potomac, Garrett, and Savage River State Forests) with an abundance of hiking & biking trails, spring-fed streams & rivers, and pristine forest. For the adventurer wishing to explore the caves, cliffs, or raft the rivers and fish the lakes, you will love the central location.

3 steps gets you from your car to the covered porch with seating. Entering your chalet the great room immediately offers a wood-burning fireplace with comfortable seating for evening relaxing. The kitchen overlooks the great room and the large dining table. Intelligently designed house offers oversized glass sliding doors seemingly bringing the surrounding forest inside for you to enjoy. The 3 level chalet offers a full bath on each level, full laundry for your convenience, and 2 separate living and gathering areas.

Relax in the main level living area offering a vaulted ceiling. Chat and share memories with each other while listening to the crackling fireplace and the solitude of the surrounding forest. Downstairs the walk-out basement offers a fooseball table, card table & chairs & large flat-screen TV mounted over the gas fireplace. Just out the back door you can soak the bones in the hot bubbly Jacuzzi in total privacy!

The main level offers a bedroom with Queen bed & TV while upstairs are found 2 more oversized bedrooms: One bedroom offers 2 twin beds and the other bedroom offers a full and twin. The lower level offers a Queen bedroom and a 5th bedroom also with a Queen. Additionally their is an air mattress available for guest overflow as needed. Abundance of board games can be found along with plenty of books to peruse. We are lucky that we are able to offer high speed wireless internet in such a rural location but you can find it here! The wrap around deck is sure to host many evenings of fun family time!

Great location

By: Trip Date: 02/07/2020

The house is beautiful! The location is private, and close to Oakland/Deep Creek. The house is roomy, the giant dining table is great for a large group, 3 full baths meant no one has to wait for a shower, and the mud room is perfect for dogs. We made a fire and watched it snow. My group had a great time and want to come back next year.

Family reunion

By: Trip Date: 08/10/2019

This house is an outstanding choice to stay at! The house was clean, amenities were great and a very quiet location to have family gatherings.

Friends getaway

By: Trip Date: 08/16/2019

The house was a perfect space for us. Everyone had their own bed, and plenty of bathrooms to accommodate. Our group loves to play board games and got to play some fun new games. It was close to everything but still felt private. I highly recommend this house.

4-generations – perfect home

By: Trip Date: 01/24/2020

Just spent a wonderful weekend with four generations of family at this perfect home. Everything was exactly as described, plenty of space and extra blankets to keep cozy, 100% clean, fast responses from the owners and helpful property managers. No TV in the main level living room but it was not missed – even by the kids. Would definitely recommend and can’t wait to be back! A great place, indeed!

Response from Tina & Robert:
We are so honored to have been able to host your multi-generational family visit and appreciate the care you took of the cabin. we hope to host you again at Forest Ridge on your next visit!

Perfect place

By: Trip Date: 06/13/2019

This was the perfect place for our long weekend getaway with friends and family. The pictures on the listing were accurate. It’s clean and had more than enough space for adults and kids alike. It felt nice and private but was still close to restaurants and entertainment.

It brings us joy to see that you were able to enjoy the solitude and quality of the chalet. Thank you for being our guest, taking such good care of the chalet, and we hope to host you again someday!

Hot tub, Amazing!

By: Trip Date: 02/15/2019

We had the best time! The house was beautiful and had everything we needed. The hot tub was also amazing and very clean. We will definitely be back!

Thank you for being our guest at Forest Ridge and we look forward to hosting you again someday! We are stoked that you were able to relax in the hot tub!

Great for large groups

By: Trip Date: 03/08/2019

Had a great weekend here with some friends and family. The property is as-advertised — very roomy, clean, and accommodating for large groups. Wifi, coffee-maker, television, foosball table, and hot tub all worked great. The description of the property warns that the driveway can be difficult to navigate in the snow without 4-wheel drive. It did prove to be a challenge, but didn’t cause any major problems — just come prepared. I would definitely recommend staying at this property if you’re looking for a nice, laid back weekend. Communication with hosts was easy and pleasant as well.

WOW – awesome feedback and thank you! We are so very excited that you were able to enjoy the chalet and we hope that you will visit with us again in a different season to experience our area’s beauty at other times of the year! Tina & Bob

Perfect for families

By: Trip Date: 03/15/2019

This home is absolutely perfect for families! Seriously no complaints at all! The communication was incredibly fast and so supportive! Thank you! This place comes with so many games for all ages to enjoy. It has a nice tv center/game room in the basement perfect for children… Read more

We are so incredibly happy that you had a great visit and were able to truly absorb the awesome that is our area! Additionally it sounds like you were able to enjoy some of the inside amenities we try to provide. You ‘private’ comments indicate how much Forest Ridge was able to help you in your family celebration and that really excites us! We look forward to hosting you again someday!

Great Value!

By: Trip Date: 03/22/2019

Great secluded location, easy check-in process, and very great value.

So very glad you enjoyed the value offered by Forest Ridge. While we are still offering it at the ‘introduction rates’ we are happy that you took full advantage of the cabin and took good care of the home while you were there!

Private location

By: Trip Date: 04/26/2019

Very private location. House was clean, well supplied as described. We look forward to staying here again.

We love great guests like you and thank you for taking such good care of the home. We look forward to seeing you again on your next visit!

Respite from the city life

By: Trip Date: 05/11/2019

Perfect get away spot if you need to escape from the city life. Plenty of space inside and out.

Very happy you were able to enjoy the solitude! Generally the only ‘traffic’ we see are the turkeys and deer in the morning and early evening at the cabin! Thanks for being a great guest!
