Waters run suite was perfect for our family of 3. The apartment was so clean! We loved the farm sophisticated decor and the full kitchen. We added breakfast and oh my goodness! Fresh fruits and juices (pressed orange AND apple), vegetarian quiche (per our request), apple crisp to die for and yogurts parfaits with blueberries! We had so much food and had leftovers! Sadie is very responsive and helpful. The animals on the farm (a St Bernard and a cat) are so friendly. Our son loved petting them! We spent 3 days skiing at wisp only 25 minutes from the farm and we will be back! You will find nothing comparable to this stay around the ski resort. I advise you to book on Sadie's own website to get the best deal and avoid the middle man fee. Plus, you get can adds-ons from her directly.
We wanted to love this place, but read on. We stayed in the Suite. Things started out on the right foot. We weren't able to get an early check-in, but the host coordinated an early bag drop-off for us, which was great. The room is super cute. It has a really comfortable queen bed and a remote controlled fireplace. There's free "country" wifi and Dish Network TV. The room was clean. The bathroom towels were super nice. There was a small fridge and microwave. We knew the suite was attached to both the main house and a guest house. The documentation we were provided stated only a single person lived in the main house. We also knew the guest house would be occupied during our stay. We *thought* that wouldn't cause an issue. On the following morning, at 6am, we were awakened by a baby screaming. I get it -- babies cry -- you can't control that -- and if that was the only thing that happened we would have been okay with it. But for the next 3 hours (up until we left for a hike), there continued to be loud noises from the guest house. Doors slamming. Kids running all around loudly. Microwave doors slamming in the kitchen. It was almost as if they were completely unaware that other guests were staying in the house. Either that or they were completely rude. And I'm not even sure whether it was the other guests or owner's family --- read on. We returned from hiking and lunch around 2:45pm, hoping to catch a nap since we were awakened so early in the morning. That was not happening. In the attached main house, the owner's family (owner, husband, 4 young kids) and other visitors (definitely heard at least 2 adult female voices) had come to have a family outing of some sort. For the next 5 hours, kids were running around and playing loudly, furniture was being re-arranged, and clanging ensued in the kitchen. Again -- we would have probably been okay with a bit of mid-day noise if that was all that happened, but after the 6am awakening, we were not pleased. Hardly the restful experience we were looking for. When I messaged the owner about it, she told me the previous Guest House renters had checked out at 10am and a new couple was checking in tonight. So, that's how I know it was the owner's family making all of the noise mid-day -- and also why I'm not sure who the culprit for the morning noise actually was -- that may have been the owner, too. All in all, we wanted to love this place. It had potential. But the paper thin walls and noise from others really detracted from the restful experience we were looking for. And I'm especially dissatisfied if all that noise came from the owners visiting their father that lives in the attached main house. We were under the impression he was the only one going to be in the main house, not a loud family reunion going on during our stay. Other things to note: - there's some annoying creaking noise that you can hear at night - shower pressure is just okay; temperature was great - wifi is slow (we were told this, so it wasn't a surprise) -- don't expect to stream things - Google thinks you get free breakfast here. Their website also implies this - it specifically says, "A homemade breakfast is prepared for you to enjoy at your convenience in your private space." My wife was excited about this. But turns out that you don't get a free breakfast. You have to pay to add it on. They should remove this from their website as it is misleading. - the freezer in the guest suite is not cold enough to keep ice cream cold. ours melted. :-( And finally, a quick update on our second night. Once the family reunion died down, it quieted down. We did hear the TV of the couple that checked in for the night, but it was barely noticeable compared to the previous noise. The weird creaking noise was still audible. Sleeping was fine that night until one of the two outdoor farm dogs started barking quite early in the morning waking us up again. The dog has barked the previous morning, too, but we were already awake at that point. The dog would stop barking just long enough for you to fall back asleep and then bark again. Still, sleep 2 was way better than sleep 1. However, neither morning was great for a restful sleep-in.…
We went to Water's Run to go skiing at Wisp Resort which is close by. The suite was beautiful and very clean and inviting. The hosts were beyond accommodating, even providing a state park pass for our use. It was really a lovely place and I will definitely go back in the summer to enjoy the lake activities!
My husband and I spent a weekend with our granddaughter. The accommodations were perfectly suited, the grounds were welcoming and the breakfasts delicious! a peaceful and restful weekend -- away from it all.
Spent a wonderful week at Waters Run Guest house during the 2014 Deep Creek Canoe Slalom Word championships. We chose this location as it was close to the Savage River, where I have great memories paddling, as well as a launching spot for daily road biking. It was the perfect combination. Our own entrance with deck, where each morning we enjoyed a deliciously prepared breakfast, and in the evening special relaxing time - reading, painting and sipping a glass of wine. The crow of the rooster woke us, and the fresh breeze reminded us how beautiful it is to be in the country. thank you Don and Beth.
