The Washington Post recently published an article titled “What Can You Buy For $300,000? Vacation Homes to Escape From the Beltway.” The article noted that mortgage interest rates are still at historical lows, real estate prices are still depressed and many people in the metro area are considering the idea of purchasing a vacation rental home. There are a lot of “Good Deals” out there these days and many of the resort area homes can be rented to vacationers to offset the expense. This is a good time to buy a second home at Deep Creek Lake.
The Post article examined three vacation destinations within driving distance of Washington DC and picked up on the property I have for sale at 1165 Harvey Peninsula Road. This house (pictured above) is a great 3 bedroom plus loft log home located within walking distance to the shoreline of Deep Creek Lake and just several miles from the Wisp Ski and Golf Resort. The house is situated on a half acre wooded lot with a large deck, hot tub, wood burning stove and pool table. The house is priced at $269,000 and has all of the amenities required for the perfect family retreat. Click here to view 28 pictures of the property and the full sales sheet.
The author, Katherine Reynolds Lewis, wrote “For a vacation home that you can use or rent almost year round, many Washingtonians flock to Deep Creek Lake.” She is absolutely correct. The majority of my customers come from the Washington DC, Baltimore and Northern Virginia areas but Deep Creek also attracts second home buyers from Pittsburgh, West Virginia, parts of Ohio and New York. I first visited Deep Creek Lake on a camping trip with my parents around the age of 13. We trailered our boat up from the Chesapeake Bay, launched at the state park and spent the night tied up to the docks at Johnny’s Bait house. We didn’t catch many fish but we had a great time. I moved to Deep Creek full time about 10 years later. The move was a great decision.
