    Beautiful little cabin

    By: Trip Date: 06/16/2023

    Beautiful little cabin tucked in the woods. Lots of wildlife so keep ur ears and eyes open! We had an amazing time!

    Got Engaged!

    By: Trip Date: 09/08/2023

    We loved coming here it was super cute and just perfect for two. It was a special weekend we ended up getting engaged! I would come back again!

    Great Re-Set to a busy life

    By: Trip Date: 08/05/2022

    This was a great experience for a first-time glamper like myself. Everything was well kept. No disturbances and just one with nature.

    worth the stay

    By: Trip Date: 10/28/2021

    We had a very nice stay. Just take some dvds to watch as there is no cable, dish or internet. But we’ll worth the stay. Nice and relaxing

    Plenty of outdoor activities.

    By: Trip Date: 10/11/2021

    You are really up in the mountains with nature all around you. It’s very quiet and away from it all. Lot of outdoor activities set by host.

    Great Proximity to the lake and budget friendly.

    By: Trip Date: 10/08/2021

    We had a great weekend staying at the cabin! It’s a perfect place for a budget conscious couple to stay in the area, especially for a fall trip. Great proximity to the lake and a number of great hiking destinations. Loved the hammocks and the fire pit!

    Wonderful Experience

    By: Trip Date: 05/07/2021

    My girlfriend and I shared an absolutely wonderful weekend at Romel’s Retreat. The cabin was extraordinarily clean and well kept! All of the necessary amenities were readily available. We enjoyed a fire, were able to grill out, cook breakfast in the kitchen, and have a restful nights sleep. Everything in the deep creek area was so close and easy to get to! We would definitely recommend going to see the falls! The directions given were spot on. It is definitely worth the cost, and we look forward to going back in the future! Thank you so much for great hospitality!

    absolutely gorgeous!

    By: Trip Date: 05/23/2021

    The location is absolutely gorgeous! So much to do in the area! You have so much space to yourself! It was nice to get away from everything for a minute and just be at peace. Cooking over a fire. Playing some horseshoes. Reading a book in a hammock. It was perfect. Surrounded by wildlife, with trails to hike not so far away, I couldn’t have asked for a better place to book!

    Father & daughter getaway

    By: Trip Date: 07/15/2019

    Great location for my 6-yo daughter and I. The cabin was clean and comfortable with thoughtful touches to inspire our journies. We enjoyed quiet mornings listening to the songbirds and at night making s’mores around the firepit and stargazing. All in all, terrific value!

    Beautiful scenery

    By: Trip Date: 08/09/2019

    Cozy little cabin! Very clean and quiet. Beautiful scenery and very close to everything in deep creek!

    Weekend retreat

    By: Trip Date: 08/30/2019

    It was everything and more than what I had imagined. Worth every penny, going back again.

    Quick getaway

    By: Trip Date: 07/12/2019

    Very cute cabin, not hard to find at all and conveniently located close to many things to do and places to go. We loved the fact they had board games and outdoor games as well. The cabin is small, cozy and even romantic for a couple or intimate and big enough for an small group of friends. The communication was fast and prompt enough. I must warn you to be prepared for a phone/WiFi free stay, since the signal is almost none. If we go back to Deep Creek Lake we will definitely stay at the cabin again!! Thanks for the little touches and how clean the cabin was.

    Great for small families

    By: Trip Date: 08/12/2018

    A really nice place to stay for small family or couple. kids activities, firepit, picnic table and grill. Cabin is set in woods ut a nice big field for the volleyball and soccer. turkeys and deer walk right past cabin while enjoying covered porch with my coffee. brilliant stars at night by fire pit. central to deepcreek, swallow falls, Herrington manor, and Yakagany River. very new clean smaller cabin set away from other mountain retreats.

    Thank you Patrick and it sounds like you enjoyed the same qualities of Romels Retreat that we enjoy….wildlife, privacy, dark skies at night to enjoy the heavens. We look forward to hosting you again someday!

    Cute cabin for a girl’s weekend

    By: Trip Date: 10/19/2018

    The cabin was cute, quaint and exactly what we were looking for to accommodate our girls’ weekend. The fire pit was a wonderful addition to our cold nights and the cabin heated very nicely. We enjoyed waking up to watch deer and turkey munch on their breakfast in the front lawn. The drive way was a bit wonky to navigate but once we got the hang of it, it was a very fun and cool experience.

    Thank you so much for being our guest and taking great care of the home and we look forward to hosting you again someday! Indeed we do utilize a local rental company to caretake the cabin as the remoteness requires good oversight to ensure no problems that aren’t promptly handled. We do monitor our messaging leading up to, and throughout, our guest visit to ensure to help in any way that we can. Glad that you were able to enjoy the solitude that is offered at the cabin!

    Fantastic time

    By: Trip Date: 11/02/2018

    This place surpassed our expectations. It was a fantastic time. The views from the cabin were phenomenal and I recommend it to anyone who wants to go to western Maryland.

    Thanks for your kind words and we are so very appreciative for your recommendation; however we will caution that it is the perfect opportunity for smaller groups as it is a small cottage on top of the mountain. We love it when we ‘surpass expectations’ as you say and you are correct – the mountain/valley views rock! Hope to see you again someday!

    Nestled in nature!

    By: Trip Date: 11/09/2018

    My wife and I went on a birthday trip here with our married friends. It was the perfect amount of space for two couples, with enough privacy. It was the size of a tiny house and super cute. We were rained and snowed in during our entire stay and I absolutely LOVED it! It was exactly what I wanted; quaint, quiet, and nestled in nature, but still close to town.

    WOW! Loving it – we know the weather didn’t play ball with you during your visit (a shame, as there is so much to do right outside of the cottage) but it sounds like you were able to still create some lasting memories. Thanks again and we look forward to hosting you again someday!

    Great little cabin

    By: Trip Date: 04/13/2019

    Great little cabin for a solo retreat, couple, or small family.

    We are so happy Matt that you got ‘exactly what you were looking for’! Awesome guest and we look forward a future visit!

    Nice Mountain Cabin

    By: Trip Date: 04/19/2019

    We enjoyed a fun weekend during the off-season of Deep Creek and Wisp. Nice mountain cabin with lots of outdoor space.

    So happy that you were able to enjoy Easter on top of our mountain and take advantage of the outdoor living! Hope to see you again on your next escape….

    Mountain views breathtaking

    By: Trip Date: 05/25/2019

    This cabin is so clean and amazing. The road up is a little sketchy; the car we brought is very low to the ground and we were concerned, but made it fine. We were surprised that there were other cabins in view, but the view of the mountains below is absolutely breathtaking. GPS directions are useless, but written directions in email are spot on. The beds were all a little uncomfortable, but that is just personal preference. Would absolutely stay again!

    Thank you for your feedback and, indeed the road climbing the mountain can be ‘interesting’! We appreciate your comments and thank you for being our guest!
