Property description

Relax, recover and unwind at Writers' Refuge, a beautiful secluded mountain chalet. This is a spectacular opportunity to enjoy all that Deep Creek Lake has to offer.

Whether skiing in the winter, boating in the summer or admiring the changing colors in Autumn, Deep Creek Lake has something for the whole family to enjoy.

This beautiful three-story chalet has 4 bedrooms (2 with queen beds, 1 with full bed and 1 with 2 twins and a trundle), 2 baths and is located 2 miles from Deep Creek Lake and 1.5 miles from the WISP Ski Resort entrance.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: We are a family of writers and communicators based in Washington DC. Mom and Dad have been journalists since the late eighties...and there is a good chance that our son will follow in the family business. Writing is what we love to do. But it is also a deadline-intensive line of business. So every chance we get, we head for Deep Creek Lake and Writers' Refuge.

Why the Owner Chose McHenry:
It is a chalet-style house and we fell in love with it the minute we drove up the drive way. It was off the beaten path while still being convenient to all the best the area has to offer. You are five minutes away form the the lake and the slopes. Or you can just curl up with a book in bed...or on the deck...and get lost in the rustic surroundings.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
The chalet is completely surrounded by the woods...away from all distractions. The views are gorgeous...especially at night...especially from the hot tub when you lean your head back on a starry night.
