Make Wonderful Memories at Gone Fish Inn! Formerly known as The Mac Shack, this charming home is right on the shores of Deep Creek Lake!

As you drive up to this home, Deep Creek Lake is visible above the roof line and gives just a sneak peak of how close you are to the water’s edge. The front door, surrounded by colorful stone, beckons you to start your vacation. A warm and comfortable great room with a massive fireplace, leather furniture, flat screen TV, and wood and stone accents greet you – you have arrived! As your eye takes in the cathedral ceiling and skylights, the all season room with a gorgeous view of the lake catches your attention. Sit, back, relax, and enjoy the view no matter the season in the plush recliners or sip your morning coffee at the café table. Off the great room lies the kitchen and dining area which has a striking centerpiece fireplace, an exquisite water view, and all the amenities you would expect in a lake front home. With stainless steel, granite, and lots of character, it will be easy to feed everyone while making memories around the spacious dining table. Just down the hall discover peaceful relaxation in a cozy bedroom suite with a private spa like bath and lake side balcony. The main level is finished with a convenient half bath and laundry area.

Upstairs offers an open loft perfect for taking in the wooded lake view, reading, or reflecting on your Deep Creek Lake adventures. Four uniquely decorated bedrooms and two full baths give everyone a place to call their own during the stay. Peaceful slumber will not be hard to find!

Access to the lake is the main feature of the lower level with two glass doors leading out to the lake side patio. However, when night falls or if the weather is not so nice, a large sectional surrounds a media center perfect for lounging, napping, or cuddling during movie time. Entertain all ages with ping pong and air hockey tables, plus a small table with games and a secret room of toys! A full bath and a bonus room with two full futons for additional sleeping space is located off the recreation room. 

Venture outdoors to find multiple lake side decks complete with a propane gas grill, and a private hot tub on the covered patio. A gently sloping grassy yard leads to a private boat dock just for your water toys. A paved driveway on the road side of the home provides space for vehicles and a boat or jet ski trailer.

They say location is everything. Gone Fish Inn sits along iconic Deep Creek Drive inside the radius of most of the resort activities and amenities. With so many restaurants, shops, marinas, and unique experiences close by, not to mention the ski slopes and golf courses just across the lake, this home is in the perfect proximity to everything as the main highway through the lake is just two-tenths of a mile away.

Gone Fish Inn is waiting for your lake vacation – plan your stay today and get away to the mountains!
