McHenry chalet description
'A Dream Come True' is the name we chose for our new vacation home, and it could not be more appropriate. We spent months looking for the perfect combination of location, style, amenities (like a 50' Plasma TV), and activities for our friends and family to enjoy. Mission accomplished! Imagine relaxing by the fire pit or unwinding in the bubbling hot tub after a long day spent water-skiing on beautiful Deep Creek Lake, golfing on the six nearby courses, or skiing on Wisp's 32 slopes and 110' of annual snowfall, all only moments away. During summer, enjoy our complimentary State Park passes, valued at $75.
A Dream Come True is right in the midst of all the popular summer and winter North Lake activities. In the summer you can walk or drive 5 minutes to the boat rental shops, restaurants, supermarket, and Fun Land's Go Cart Raceway and minigolf. The Deep Creek State Park is 15 minutes from the house and provides public boat access. In winter, the Wisp ski resort is less than a mile away. On snowy Deep Creek days, take the kids to the snow tubing park. By staying here, you avoid the time and traffic driving over the bridges to get to all the North Lake activities and the resort - you are already there!
In the mornings, take a stroll for a nearby cup of fresh coffee. With an acre of privacy, you can let the kids go off and play or ride their bikes on the quiet cul-de-sac (in winter they can sled down the front lawn!). Give them one of the provided two-way radios to stay in touch. Spend your days on the lake, on the slopes, at the nearby State Parks, golfing, mountain biking or antiquing -- the activities are endless -- and don't forget Wisp's new mountain coaster and recirculating whitewater course!
In the evenings, enjoy a game of pool in the recreation room, or watch your favorite DVD on our 50 inch Hi-Def PLASMA TV with Sony home theater and surround speakers (try Halo for Xbox 360 on the Plasma, truly amazing). We have a selection of books, videos and Xbox games ready for you to enjoy. Bring your laptop and connect to our WiFi to enjoy easy access. Or simply relax with a game of darts, boardgames, or perhaps just a quiet evening spent by the fireplace in the Great Room with cathedral ceiling.
Need some down time? some tranquility? Relax by the fire in our comfortable chairs. Pull up a chair on the deck and listen to the birds sing among the tall hickories, or kick back on the swing and simply enjoy the foliage on a bright summer day. You are visiting a beautiful mountain lake vacation area, why rent a townhouse or a condo when A Dream Come True has it all for less! Since many of you have asked, there are 4 bedrooms with queen size beds, plus 2 queen sofabeds (1 in the Great room, and 1 in the Family room), and of course the deck, patio and porch in the pictures -- plenty of room for several families.
To help make your vacation memorable and avoid expensive lessons, keep this CHECKLIST in mind when renting: How far away are Wisp and the lake? Will you get a valid contract to back up your deposit? Are the home & furnishings NEW, or do you like 'rustic'? If it rains, is the home big enough & filled with amenities to keep everyone happy? Will you need 4-wheel drive to get to the house? Is there cell phone coverage? Will you be wedged in among partying neighbors? Are the grocery store and restaurants nearby? You won't be disappointed here!
Also included in your rental are professionally laundered bed and bath linens so no need to bring your own.
We encourage you to share your experiences at Deep Creek in our visitors book we keep at the house. Maybe you found a great little place to shop or dine or a really neat family activity. Just take a few minutes to jot down the details and share about your trip.
Our renters have raved about A Dream Come True. Come see for yourself! We book up fast so send us an inquiry today -- then get ready for a great vacation! Thanks, Brian and Mary Lee
Please note that if you plan to use the fire pit, you can purchase wood bundles at the grocery store less than 2 minutes from our home. We do not store wood at our home since doing so can invite critters that we do not wish to welcome! You will need to take any left over wood with you when your stay is over.

We really enjoyed our stay at this property! It was perfect for six adults and five children - everyone had plenty of room to spread out. The kids and adults enjoyed the pool table and darts, and we were able to watch the college football games everyone wanted to see. The house was very clean, the furniture was clean and comfortable, and every family had their own bathroom. We also loved sledding on the driveways and road leading to the house and were minutes from the grocery store and the ski slopes. Perfect, perfect, perfect!

What a great vacation home! We had a great stay. The home is close to restaurants and local attractions. The owners were great, in fact the wifi went out and we received a call about how to correct it with 15 minutes. The pool table and hot tub were great additions. The house was very clean inside, however the deck was filthy and the outdoor furniture was in bad repair.

Owner response: Elle, We're glad you had a great vacation! Thank you for the positive feedback on our home...we do take a lot of pride in it and sharing it with others. We also appreciate your note about the deck furniture. We just reviewed things prior to the summer season which resulted in us replacing the grill as it no longer met our standards. So we will be sure to take a second look at the deck furniture. We hope you enjoyed the Deep Creek area as much as us and hope we can accommodate you the next time your travels bring you to Deep Creek. Take care! Mary Lee and Brian

We had a wonderful Christmas in this house. House was clean when we arrived, and it had everything you need for your stay. We have two kids, 8 and 2 years old and the house was perfect for both of them. We had a nice snow storm and the kids didn't need to go to the ski resorts to have fun in the snow, the house even had a nice slope for the kids to sled. Pool table and hot tub were perfect for the adults to entertain and have fun. Perfect house for the whole family! We would definitively go back!

Owner response: Veronica, We are so glad to hear you and your family had a great time. It can be magical when it snows and yes, our driveway does make for a pretty good sled run! Please let us know if we can ever be of assistance for your future travel plans. Best wishes in the New Year! Brian and Mary Lee
This was a nice home for a family gathering -- my dad's 75th birthday. We had 6 adults and 2 children (ages 14 and 11), and there was plenty of space so it didn't feel like we were on top of each other. Deep Creek Lake State Park is about a 10 minute drive away, Swallow Falls State Park about 25 minutes. Also, less than an hour to Ohiopyle, where we went rafting on the Lower Yough. The master bedroom was definitely spacious enough, and the others were fine -- not huge, but sufficient. One person complained that their mattress was lumpy, but no one else did. We spent a lot of time in the 2 tv rooms, and although we had to move in a dining chair or two, it was generally roomy enough. The gameroom was a hit, although it would have been nice if the dartboard was not right next to the pool table (meaning that a pool player was often in the line of fire), and also if there were chalk provided for keeping score on the dartboard. The basement was cool (in terms of fun, as well as temperature), so we had to bundle up in blankets to watch a movie, then shed the blankets as the upstairs was much, much warmer. A few quibbles about the house - the front door lock was very finicky (even despite the warning provided), so it was sometimes a struggle trying to get the key to lock (or unlock) the door. Would have been great if there were screen doors at the front and sliding glass doors, to prevent moths from flying in. The dishwasher racks were also very delicate and seemed to come off the tracks very easily (probably a combination of years of use by renters, and the fact that the plates were heavy). Finally, it would have been nice if a couple of staple items (for example, salt, pepper, sugar, some spices, extra toilet paper) had been stocked so we didn't have to run to the store for those -- we've rented places before where those items have been provided. That said, we had a very nice time. It's a good location, plenty of space, and met our needs. We didn't use the hot tub or grill, although both were available. We used the kitchen 2 nights, and went to some McHenry restaurants the other nights (thumbs up to Mountain State Brewing Company; also went to Santa Fe Grille and Will o the Wisp). Despite our minor nitpicks, we had a really good time, enjoyed our stay at this house and at DCL. Recommended.

Wonderful Place to Stay
Wonderful Place to Stay
The house overall was excellent. The owners were very prompt in answering any questions or concerns we had. Very clean cant state that enough. Although we do have some cons to list, overall it was an excellent stay and we are just giving these as suggestions. Would definitely recommend this as an excellent place to stay with your family. We had 2 families that stayed and we were together and yet had our own space. Made many priceless memories here! Pros: Close to everything, Quiet cul-de-sac, Nice deck to drink morning coffee, extremely clean Cons: Door lock needs replaced as we spent 5 minutes at least each time locking/unlocking because it just spins, could use hand rails on both sides of stairs (our daughter has a disability but others may benefit from this upgrade), we realize board games and dvd player are extra benefits but when its listed and can be seen as a winning point to book this place over others - it would be nice if games were complete and dvd/vhs player worked

Owner response: Kenda, thank you for your nice comments. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate you reporting the issue with the dvd/vhs player which allowed us to have that replaced. We are also looking into the item you noted with the lock to see what is needed there and will inventory the games as well. We take great pride in our vacation home and the opportunity we have to share it with others and we want everything to be just as perfect as it can be. Thanks again for the feedback and if we can be of service to you and your family in the future, just let us know. Take care, Mary and Brian
We just returned from our Anniversary get-away at the chalet and had a wonderful time! The chalet was exactly what we were looking for during our stay! We can't wait to book again! Clean, beautiful, pristine area with great amenities! Thanks again and look forward to our next stay!

Your house was absolutely WONDERFUL! We had a blast and it was perfect for us. We loved it (esp. the pool table and hot tub), and hope to come back again. You have an awesome place! My sister and her husband came from Dublin, Ireland. We haven't seen her in 2 years and your home made the most awesome reunion for us! Thanks Again, Sarah Jones

Hello, I must say your home was very comfortable and beautiful. It was the little touches that may the accommodations complete, like the flower arrangements, the pictures, table mats and other household items. Your book collection was great. We always bring extra household items when we come to Deep Creek like pots and cooking utensils, the items remained in the vehicle, because your property had everything we needed. On Saturday we decided to cook on the grill, the propane tank was empty. I called Coldwell and Banker office, they were very pleasant and stated if we refill it just save the receipt for reimbursement. I would highly recommend your property to my friends. Thanks for a Relaxing and Comfortable weekend. (my husband met your brother next door)

Great family vacation, We stayed at A Dream Come True for the last week in June and loved every bit of it. We took the kids Power Wheels and they drove around all evening, and adults wound down in the basement shooting pool and watching movies on the Big Screen after spending the entire day on the lake. Was in a nice easy to find location, home, was bigger than it even seems on pics, with rooms everywhere. thanks again
