"Family Celebrates the Holidays in Style"
Rock Haul was the perfect place for our family to come together to share an early celebration of Christmas. Six bedrooms and three baths were ideal for our situation. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. No one was concerned about being the last one to shower because there was always plenty of hot water. We awoke Saturday morning to an ice covered world. No one cared. In fact, we all enjoyed having breakfast while admiring the beauty of the trees and speculating on whether or not the ice fishermen on the lake really knew what they were doing. A wide variety of board games and DVD's, not to mention cable TV gave all of us entertainment options. We ate all our meals at Rock Haul. A well stocked, large kitchen made meal preparation easy. We also appreciated the fact that all eleven of us could sit comfortably around the dining room table. If busy work and school schedules can be coordinated in 2017, we all voted to return to Rock Haul. We had a wonderful time!!! Bob & Kay O
"Great Family Vacation Place"
Loved this place for our group of two couples, one mother with a baby, and a grandmother with three school age grandchildren. The ground floor apartment with two bedrooms, bath, and family room provided separate sound-proof quarters for the grandmother and school age kids, and the adults and baby were undisturbed on the top floor. There is direct access to the dock, where the kids had a great time playing (with adult supervision). The kitchen is big and well furnished, and the fire pit area was a hit. It's reasonably close to the beach at Deep Creek state park. There aren't other activities for kids close by. For boaters, it would be ideal. Andrea K.
"Rock Hall on Deep Creek"
The Joyce home at Rock Hall met the needs of my family for a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. The house is well maintained and comfortable. John Joyce is very easy to deal with. We used the MD State Park pass to visit Swallow Falls and Deep Creek Lake State Parks. I launched our boat at Deep Creek Lake SP, which is a short ride from the house. The boat dock at the house is convenient and equipped with a ladder for swimming in the lake. The cove area is great for kayaking as well. We golfed at nearby Fantasy Valley at WISP, checked out the man-made whitewater course at the top of the mountain, attended the Garrett County Fair which happened to be that week. And of course we spent much time exploring the lake. An enjoyable time, enhanced by the comfortable home. Robert G.
"Great Stay at Rock Haul"
The Rock Haul home was awesome! It was a great location with a beautiful view of the lake. Great for watching sunrises. The house was fully equipped with everything you needed: kitchen appliances, plenty of pots and pans, wifi, cable & dvds player, games, a balcony with furniture, and a fire pit. Overall, my family had a great time and we'd love to stay here again! A guest from Fort Washington, MD
"Roomy and comfortable house - great for a family gathering!"
My extended family were very comfortable in this house with bedrooms for everyone and a large dining room. The kitchen had all the appliances and cooking equipment we needed and there were fans for each window. The two bedrooms upstairs with A/C window units kept the upstairs cool as long as the bedroom doors were kept open. the owners provided a pass for Deep Creek State Park which had a great beach. We also enjoying very much walking to and swimming in the Swallow Falls which was a short drive away. My family had a great time - swimming, playing board games, watching fireworks, and roasting marshmallows! Heather P.
"Felt like home away from home!!"
Rock Haul was an excellent vacation rental for us. This was our second Thanksgiving in the Deep Creek area in the past 6 years, and we enjoyed this home much more than the previous one. The kitchen and dining room were well stocked with pretty much everything we needed, even for our Thanksgiving dinner. The home itself was cozy and comfortable for our group of 11, and the Owner's were quick to respond to any questions we had. We would definitely come back!! Robert G
"Awesome Retreat"
Wonderful trip. The home is roomy will nice amenities. Kitchen was well stocked with all items needed. All appliances worked well. Nice selection of DVDs and VHS movies for everyone as well as games. The Wii was a nice addition. Nice view of the lake. Peaceful and Quiet neighborhood. We stayed during the coldest weekend of the winter and the home was nice and warm, loved the wood stove and the fact that there was plenty of firewood for our use. Dining room table was large enough for us all to sit and enjoy a meal together. Our family will definitely be returning to Rock Haul in the future. (Maybe when it is warm enough to enjoy the grill, fire pit and swimming in the lake. schensley Boonsboro, Maryland
"Large house with loads of entertainment options"
Large house with TONS of indoor entertainment options that come very handy if the weather isn’t great. DVDs, VHS tapes, flat screen TVs, even a wii console. Decor takes you back to the mid-80s in not a bad way at all! Great location for local amenities. Crystal
"Beautiful log house - nice view of lake - close to everything"
A beautiful three story building with a very rustic feel to it. The home faces a beautiful tree-lined lake. At night you can go out on the dock and see a star-filled sky. There is a full kitchen and grill, so cooking is no problem. For food, there is a grocery store just a few miles away that has all you need. John and Kathy have plenty of board games and old DVDs/VHS for a nice night in. The house is also just a few miles away from many scenic trails to hike and lakes to boat on. A great place to stay for a weekend with a group of friends or with your family! Joaquin
"Nice house with beautiful view of the lake"
My Dad and his friends had a wonderful fly-fishing weekend at John's home. They said that the kitchen was great, the beds were comfortable, and the house has a beautiful view of the lake. They said that they would love to return again sometime. Thanks for having them John, they had a great time! Eliza
