Spent a wonderful 3 nights at american Pride for Thanksgiving 2013. We had twelve people, 7 adults and 5 children. It housed us all very comfortably, the kitchen was well equipped and a great time was had by all. Sitting in the covered Jacuzzi at night while it was snowing was wonderful.
Nice house for a short weekend - wouldn't do a week though

We recently stayed here for a ski weekend at Wisp. Renting through Taylor Made was great.
-Great open floor plan with lots of seating at the bartop counter, dining room table, and living room
-Basement is very cozy and comfortable; pool table is a plus
-Bedrooms are a great size and the beds are comfortable
-Hot tub is sized-well given the occupancy amount of the house
-The lake is an easy walk from the house (for those in the summer) and Wisp is only a 15-20 minute drive.
-Water pressure was nonexistant in the house if one person was taking a shower. For example, I took a shower in the master bathroom, and those trying to use the kitchen faucet had no water until I was finished.
-No gas for the gas fireplace.
-The owners need to hire new cleaners - the place was cleaned "typically" for a rental but there was a lot of dust everywhere.
Overall, the house was good for us for a short weekend but with the water pressure issues, I couldn't do it for a full week. Read more

We enjoyed our stay. Some of the things I would suggest to know before renting: Hot tub jets does not come back on when it auto shuts off, seems there are 2 roof leaks-1 in the master bathroom and the other in the living room near the beam. The house offers a firepit but firewood is not provided nor was mentioned we had to purchase our own firewood. The pool table is not level. Other homes we stayed in did offer firewood and were better maintained. Doors and walls were dirty when we arrived. We enjoyed our stay and looking forward to renting the same location in the future. We like the proximity of the lake, firepit, hot tub, open layout and community amenities. The home is equipped to handle small children which is a big plus for our family. Read more

The owners of American Pride have put in a completely new water system. So the brown water should be fixed.
American Pride is amazing!

I would recommend this house to anyone traveling to Deep Creek. It is close enough to a dock to bring/rent a boat, and close enough to the state park/ski areas as well. Loved this house--will go back to it next year!

We did have an issue with the water. We were told it wa due to rain and melting snow causing too much phospate in the water. The rental company did provide plenty of jugs of water for us.

We had one of our best get away weekends at American Pride. Plenty of great amenities which made the weekend too short. When we arrived a tree had fallen in the driveway, but we had fun pushing it into the woods. The only issue was the well water which remained cloudy/discolored even after letting the water run. Overall, we gave American Pride 2 thumbs up!

We enjoyed our stay at American Pride and have a few suggestions. It would be nice if there were extra blankets. It snowed the day we were there and the hill getting to the house was iced over and we couldn't get up the hill, but we called and they came out to plow and salt within 10 minutes :) It would be helpful if they had a little more salt available to use on the driveway. Also, an extra shoe tray would probably be used when there is a big group using the home. This house was equipped very well with items you need to cook various meals.

The only thing I could improve upon would be to have more comfy mattresses. Maybe memory foam mattress toppers could be added. We really enjoyed the kitchen as it was relatively well stocked with a good selection of cooking utensils, and had a nice grill. Also, I do not know if there is any way to get the brown sooty residue out of your water, but this would be good too.

Our family loved our stay at American Pride. The owners have done a wonderful job with making the home welcoming and just a wonderful place to relax with family. We loved the open floor plan, the furniture was really nice and comfortable (we all want to go out a buy a couch like the one in the family room now), great location, nice view from the hot tub - I could just keep going on! This was our first trip to Deep Creek and we are planning on making it a family tradition now. Thank you for the great experience Taylor Made!
If I could kindly point out just 2 things that may want to be addressed for future visitors at American Pride...there was a lot of dust and cob webs high out of reach with the beautiful high walls.
Wonderful Vacation Home

My family and I had a lovely stay in 'American Pride' in this last week. We found this home to be well designed, beautifully appointed, very clean, and nicely stocked with everything a visitor might need. Additionally, the Tayor-Made group obviously understands the importance of customer service as their staff is just exceptional. I most definitely recommend Taylor-Made and this vacation home in particular. I am sure that others who stay here will have as memorable a time as my family and I did in Deep Creek. Thank you!

Appreciate your having supplied the fridg and really wish that we could have it next year.....mayber at an additional $40 for the service???Everything was super and all 14 of us found ourselves totally relaxed and comfortable. The new mattresses were great too. Oh and thanks for the terrific weather. Couldn't have been nicer. You can use my name in the review. See you next year.
Will return for sure!

Great home, comfy, cozy, felt like home. Spotless!! Maintanence came right out to refill hot tub ( we over flowed it) and add more chemicals. Office staff is AMAZING! very helpful. Fully equiped kitchen. It was an easy relaxing weekend, can't wait for next year! CON- needs a much lager hot water tank for all the guest it holds. And dry firewood in home for downstairs ( blizzard and it was all wet) Otherwise, I recommend this house to anyone who wants to relax with group or family, yet still have plenty of private time. Super super house! Read more

We had a memorable time. Youngest daughter got engaged, 37 inches of snow, and great support from your home inspector and husband who dug 3 cars out and would not take any compensation. That was a tough job but they never gave up. Great house with plenty of room. We would love to do it again making it an annual gathering. I only wish you weren't 11 hours away

I do not think I have enough space here to say everything that I need to say about the rental. My family was very pleased with Taylor Made and the American Pride house. We got together for Christmas and thought we should have brought our Christmas tree but to our delight there was already one there decorated with lights and candy canes. The house was very comfortable and cozy and had everything in it from dishes to movies to board games. We really enjoyed ourselves and plan to go back next year!!!! The staff was wonderful and attentive and made you feel very welcome. I think we may have started a new tradition with family and Taylor Made. Thank you for our Christmas memories!!!

It was so good to be able to get away and relax on vacation. Usually a vacation will leave you more stressed out when you come home. Also spending time with my first grandchild and her father's family was a wonderful experience.

We loved it. We want to come back again. The house is a very short walk to the lake -- much closer than anyone had indicated to us. Our dog loved the short trek to the shore. The yard is open enough for activities, and the deck is a great place to hang out with friends.

We found the house to be in need of a few repairs. One bureau was unusable, hot tub hadn't been cleaned, gas grill was filthy and baths could have been cleaner. Probably wouldn't rent this house again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at American Pride for our family reunion this summer. The house is in a quiet, residential area that has limited car traffic and access to a community center with a terrific indoor pool. The house is nicely furnished with beautiful artwork. The beds were all quite comfortable (only one on the lower level was a little bit soft). We appreciated knowing that the hot tub water was replaced each week. We rented two kayaks for a few days and were able to store them on racks near the community dock. There also was a boat slip for a ski boat or sailboat that can be rented by the day or for the week. The only place to swim was off the end of the community dock, where there is a ladder. If you want to swim from the shore near the community dock, you need water shoes because the shoreline is rocky not sandy. If you fish from the dock, be sure to purchase a fishing license for anyone 16 or over (and keep it with you) as the licensing requirements are enforced. I would highly recommend this property.
Management good, cleanliness not so good
Left on 07/28/2009 for a stay in July 2009 | Debbie B.
The house was not clean. A cleaning person was sent over, but the cleaning standards were low. Also, the toilets plugged up easily and caused a horrible odor in the basement level. Dock provided with the house was good and not too far. There was a walking path to the dock, but you could drive and park at the dock as well. If the house had been clean then our satisfaction level would be a 5.

I did however want to thank you for your prompt attention to my phone calls regarding a few minor problems that we had during our stay at American Pride. I felt like you and your staff were genuinely concerned about our issues and took care of these issues promptly and courteously. My family would stay at this location again and we will highly recommend Taylor Made to our friends and family. Thanks again for everything. By the way the wedding was spectacular and the weather was perfect just like you said it would be!

a few notes that might be helpful. in advertisement it stated four queens when in fact they were doubles. place was not clean but chose to clean on own instead of calling. things we didn't clean were the cabinet where the trash can is. it REALLY needs scrubbed! some of the windows are so filthy that you cannot see out. grill took two hours for us to clean. please leave a vacuum cleaner for guests to clean. it was nice to have the clean linens and sheets. i only wished the lake was closer or the beach area was cleared so we could sit. overall we had a wonderful time with our family and we would like to reserve again for next yr. the people at taylor made were very kind and helpful.thanks!!
