  • Why should I direct book rather than use an online travel agency such as VRBO?

    We ask our guests to book directly with Red Barn Vacations in order to give our team the best opportunity to get to know you and offer the best rate available. You have the promise of our ‘Best Rate Guarantee’ when you book through our website. Red Barn Vacations is locally owned and operated, and all our homes are owned by individual homeowners. When you book direct, all of the money you pay goes to support our vision and local ownership, and not giant corporations.

  • What additional services does Red Barn offer?

    It's your vacation: get spoiled! Our concierge service takes all of the work out of planning the perfect vacation. Whether we are pre-stocking your fridge, arranging catered meals, or coordinating boat or ski rentals, we make it easy, and effortless, for you to enjoy everything that DCL has to offer.

  • Am I able to bring more people than my home occupancy advertises?

    The occupancy of a home is determined by county ordinance thus adding additional people over 2 years old is not allowed. If you need additional rooms for overflow, reach out to us and we are happy to provide you with rooms at the Red Barn Inn at a reduced rate.

  • Are there quiet hours mandated at Deep Creek Lake?

    Yes! Please remember that there are many people that are lucky enough to call the Deep Creek Lake Area home. It is important and respectful that you move all activities inside after 11 pm and before 8 am and be mindful of the noise even then. Sound carries while in a swimming pool, hot tub, or across the lake so while it may not seem loud to you, it very well be to others. If we receive a complaint, we will make every effort to contact the contract holder but please be mindful that neighbors who complain are instructed to call the police non emergency line to rectify the nuisance.

  • COVID has changed the world of cleanliness. What should we expect as we enter our vacation home?

    We are a small, elite company committed to the finest guest experience available. Unlike our competitors, we have the capability to provide an enhanced cleanliness experience, disinfecting all surfaces and offering triple sheeting. We highly encourage our homeowners to utilize cotton duvet cover sheeting in order to have the coverlets changed with each new family that uses our homes.

  • Can I get a refund or change homes after I have signed my Rental Agreement?

    Most likely not. All of our homeowners consider their homes to be small businesses and like you, they rely on the revenue from their rentals to maintain their homes and ability to vacation at Deep Creek Lake. Securing one of their homes negates the ability of others to rent. Securing travel insurance is one way to protect yourself financially from unforeseen circumstances and we highly recommend that you purchase it. Should you need to cancel, we will work hard to rebook the home that you rented in order for you to receive a refund, less 10% of the total cost of booking. If we are unable to rebook, you will forfeit all payments made at the time of cancellation. Travel Insurance is always non-refundable.

  • How do you define the various lake access choices?

    As you research the perfect Red Barn Vacation elite hone for your summer vacation, it is important that you understand the various definitions of lake access. Here they are: Lakefront - just as it sounds, this label describes homes located directly on the lake. Be sure to study the property descriptions so that you understand the proximity of the home to the lake and any barriers that may exist. Lake access - This means that your home is not directly on the lake but the home provides space on the lake to swim and fish and perhaps even a dock slip for your personal watercraft or rental. Split Lake Front - If you book a split lakefront home, you can expect that there will be a road to cross to get from your home to the designated lakefront.
