Fun-Filled, Relaxing Retreat on Top of the Mountain
"Just returned from a wonderful week of vacation in DCL at Rick's house. I honestly can't say enough great things about this house and I echo everyone else's comments about how "all-inclusive" of a house it is!
We were 3 families with 6 adults and 6 kids (aged 5-11) and were 1st time visitors to Deep Creek. We arrived at 3pm and had no problem using the keyless entry. The first thing you are greeted by is a beautiful, clean smell...and the awesome arcade. The indoor pool was clean and big enough for everyone (and has a convenient door alarm). We all did nightly s'mores around the fire pit and enjoyed the hot tub as well (too warm in the summer for the sauna but I'm sure it rocks in the winter!). The beds really are comfortable and as Rick states in his info, the sheets are a really great quality. There were ample bathrooms (one in each bedroom) and even 2 on the main floor. The kitchen was absolutely beautiful and well-stocked...the floor-to-ceiling sliding windows overlooking the lake were gorgeous and the adults had morning coffee every morning outside.
It is a very quiet and serene setting with birds chirping every morning. And even though we had absolutely great weather (NO RAIN!), I'm sure we would have been completely entertained if we had been house-bound (SO many movies), to boot!
If you have never been to this area, I'd recommend definitely eating at Archie's BBQ at least once (met the owner...who knows Rick...great food), visiting Swallow Falls (waterfalls and hiking) and boating the Lake and docking at the Honi Honi bar for some live music and drinks and treats for the kids. (NOTE: DO NOT rent from Deep Creek Lake Boat Rentals!!! The owner is shady and rude. Not only did our boat stall 4 times and we had to wait for help while our boat drifted in the open with no anchor (they wouldn't give us one), but we were given a boat with a gas gauge that said "1/2 full" - which were told was incorrect and was actually full - and after we put $100 worth of gas in it, we had to fight for some $$$ back). Go to Bills Marine. But I digress...
Rick obviously puts a lot of care and attention into his homes and it shows. Our kids didn't say they were "bored" ONE time the whole week. We barely SAW them between the arcade, the pool and the VERY popular mini golf course!
If you compare pix from other properties, you can see how well-appointed his place is.
I would recommend this place to ANYONE!!! Thanks for a WONDERFUL vaca Rick!"

"Our family reunion at Highland Manor couldn't have been better. We had LOTS of people, including a bunch of little kids and we all just disappeared into the home at bedtime, while having more than enough common social space on the upper floor when we wanted to eat together and have activities. The pictures don't do the place justice: it is MUCH bigger than it looks, with the large kitchen, dining, outdoor dining, and living room areas able to accommodate large groups for cooking, eating, and games. The indoor pool is small, but clean and well-maintained along with the hot tub. We particularly liked the alarms on the doors to and from the pool area since we had a number of non-swimming toddlers on the trip. The home shows some slight wear, but nothing that affected our stay. The quiet gated community has a nice common outdoor pool around the corner, beautiful hiking paths, and is just up the mountain from Wisp and the lake. Laurie provided answers to all our questions during the planning stage and was a pleasure to work with."

"I rented this condo for a golf weekend in Deep Creek. We normally stay at the Wisp Resort but they were booked for the weekend we wanted to attend. I am so glad that Wisp was booked this condo was the perfect place to stay for the weekend. We had 8 adults and the condo was plenty big enough. The owners have thought of everything, there was no need to bring anything but our personal belongings. The weather was great so we got to enjoy the table and chairs on the deck. No complaints at all, I would book again for any future trips. Thanks to the owners for sharing their place with us. Was a great time had by all."

"I was looking for place to get away with my family as well as with my brother's family. We recently lost our father to cancer and needed a place to "escape" for a while.
I stumbled upon Could 10 and it was exactly what the "doctor ordered."
Starting with the million dollar view...to all of the extra amenities (pool, hot tub, pool table, darts, arcade, mini golf of which we used all of them)...our stay couldn't have been any better.
Thanks Rick for creating a family friendly place to relax and forget about life for a while."
