Why The Owner chose McHenry

Our property provides the ideal lakefront for your family to enJoy fun filled days on and in the water. Our large private dock is for your use only and is located near the end of Cherry Creek Cove. The front of the dock sits in about 10 feet of water, perfect for carefree jumping and diving. Because of our position in the cove boats do not blast by the dock creating wakes or safety issues. Best of all the other side of the Cove is State Park property, free of houses, noise and lights. Evenings at the fire pit have that great backwoods feeling.

What makes this house unique

House has an open floor plan, all the modern conveniences and yet the stone and wood textures create a wonderful cabin feel.

This property worked especially well for our 2 families of adults, teens, and preteens. It was spacious, comfortable, beautifully decorated and within close proximity to the lake. The fire pit area and dock were a great place to hang out and be near the water. The house had everything we needed and the linen service was great! Steve and Eileen were wonderful to work with and made sure we had everything we needed for a great week of fun. We will definitely be back!

Perfect mountain/lake getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in this home for many years now. We love the peace and quiet. We love the cove which the kids can swim in without getting run over by boats and jet skis!! Nice walks and more. The house is comfortable and homey and we feel comfortable vacationing there with our four kids! This house is perfect for all ages!

Great winter get-away

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! We wanted a winter, long weekend get-away for two families and this was the perfect place. This house is absolutely beautiful. The entire front of the house is glass and looks out over the lake. It was wonderful to watch the snow fall...oh so peaceful, even with four kids running around. Very spacious, up to date, and loved the wood burning fireplace. Made it an official winter retreat. It was a hop skip and jump away from Wisp, which is the main reason we chose this location. Would love to come back during the summer and take advantage of the lake and golf. Highly recommended for families!!!

My extended family and I stayed here for a week and I have so many good things to say! The house itself is lovely. The rooms are very spacious and I can't say enough about the kitchen. It's incredibly well stocked for a rental and the knives are even sharp! The dock was wonderful - we had a boat there and spent a lot of time swimming down there. The best part of the house was the fire pit. What an amazing location and such incredible surroundings. It rained several times during our stay, but the forest is so thick there, we barely got sprinkles at the fire pit. We rented a water trampoline one day from Bill's Marine and highly recommend that for kids (and adults). We also did some of the activities at the Wisp Resort's Outdoor Adventure Center. Great activities for all ages. The only thing I didn't realize was that there is a road between the house and the lake -just keep an eye on the kids when crossing the road. Some people come around the curves pretty fast. We would highly recommend this property and hope to stay here again! Steve and Eileen were great to work with and very responsive.

Return Visit Did Not Disappoint!!

  • 5 of 5

Another fantastic week with the family at Deep Creek and wouldnt think of staying at any other place. We are in the market and have been looking around.....problem is, the bar is set pretty high!!! This is a wonderful home and situated on perhaps the best cove on the entire lake!!! Nothing better than getting an early morning swim in while the kids swing from the rope swing on the opposite side of the cove. The dock was a great spot for getting some sun and dropping a line in the water. A great week in a very comfortable vacation home with all the conveniences.

Deep Creek is a true 4 Season Resort. The summer months offer all lake watersports as well as flyfishing, kayaking and white water rafting on the Youghiogheny, Savage or Casselman Rivers. Golf at the Wisp Resort or several other challenging courses within a short drive. The Fall is a wonderful time for Autumn boating and exploring the many State parks. Winter offers downhill and cross country skiing at the Wisp Resort. Ice fishing and snow mobiling are enjoyed by many.
