If your dates are booked at Ski & Glee already, check my other 2 properties at the lake. You can click the Owner Info link and then the All My Rental Listings link **********

Want to see what I have been adding to this property to make it better every single month?

Ski & Glee is located in a Ski in/Ski out access community next to 'Main Street' ski slope on top of WISP mountain. It has panoramic views of Deep Creek Lake and the surrounding areas. It is private but conveniently located to all the necessities. Ski & Glee boasts an indoor heated swimming pool which can be supervised through large glass windows in any of the main level rooms. An outdoor hottub allows you to soak while overlooking the lake in peaceful tranquility. An outdoor Sauna is next to the hot tub with a view of the lake through the glass door. Ample seating on the brick paver patio provides great outdoor gathering space.

The property has 5 king bedrooms and 2 queen sleeper sofas with 6.5 baths. That's 5 master suites, very desirable so that everyone feels they are getting an equally equipped room. Granite countertops, double ovens, microwave and fully stocked kitchen make for spectacular meal times. The outdoor gas grill adds to your cooking options.

Linens are provided and unlike most rentals, these are not the cheap see-through white linens from the linen companies that the rental agencies use. These are 650 thread count sateen finish sheets and luxury micro dry towels.

Most notable is the endless entertainment provided by the 73' HDTV in the Living room with an HD DVR, 55' LCD HDTV in the Game room with an HD receiver, 2 Xbox 360's, one with Kinect 3D motion, 10 real arcade video games, 2 pinball machines, pool table and hundreds of movies at your disposal.

Keyless locks mean you never have to find or return keys as well as peace of mind in knowing that no previous renter can obtain access during your stay.

Please take a look at all the other rental properties on VRBO and the 3 major rental companies in Deep Creek. Compare the 5br houses with indoor heated pools to Ski & Glee, I welcome the comparison! I have done my research and I am far cheaper yet offer far more. The only property you will find that will compare is my other property, Cloud 10 also here on VRBO (VRBO listing #161223) which is a 4br home.

Don't let bad weather hamper your enjoyment of your vacation. I know this goes without saying but 'happy kids make happy parents!' (It's also a given that men are just big kids)

Don't think of Ski & Glee as just skiing when it comes to outdoor activities. You are walking distance to the ASCI sports center at the top of WISP mountain which boasts the only mountain top white water rafting course in the world! WISP offers many non-winter activities such as ziplines, mountain biking, mountain roller coaster, dune buggy rentals, rock climbing and more. You are less than 2 miles from 2 different 18 hole golf courses as well. Trust me when I tell you that you will not take advantage of all that Deep Creek has to offer in one trip.

Come see why Ski & Glee is aptly named for the skiing and fun you will have while visiting here.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: I live in Northern VA near DC, retired from software development and enjoy managing my rental properties.

              Why the Owner Chose McHenry:
              To be honest, the close proximity to the airport. I flew in for lunch one day and fell in love with the area. True 4 season resort. There really isn't a season where you can not find enjoyment in Deep Creek. Winter and summer are obvious but spring and fall are beautiful. Leaves changing in the fall along with the festivals then Spring hiking and visiting water falls etc just make for an enjoyable trip anytime you come here. This is my second vacation home in Deep Creek, the first one convinced me what a great area this is.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Ski & Glee on the northern end of Deep Creek lake is unique in that it is close to everything you really want to do while visiting. Everything you need such as groceries, alcohol, bars, ski slopes, marinas, arcades, batting cages, coffee houses etc are mins from the house. The indoor heated swimming pool along with outdoor hottub, dual xbox 360's, xbox kinect 3D motion, 100's of streamable movies and arcade make for entertainment no matter what the weather conditions or time of day/night. I manage the maintenance of the property myself and feel I do a much better job because it's mine and I actually care. This is one property that shines above other rentals in that it's always kept up and maintained, after all, it's got to be good enough for ME to stay there and I'm a hotel snob.
