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!!!

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!
