Be sure to check out my new business Fun Unlimited, just 3.8 miles from Ski & Glee at www.FunUnlimitedDCL.com. It is a Free Play arcade with 101 games, all set to free play for $15/hour fixed cost. After 1st hour it is prorated by the minute at a lesser $10/hour rate or you can get an all day pass for $30! Parents who pay for their children under 16 are free! I have a working vintage museum in the business for adults 16 & up that houses 30 vintage games from the 1950's - 1970's. The lower level has 71 more games including 13 real pinball machines, 2 skee ball machines, 28 racing games, shooting games, fighting games, bowling, flight simulators and so much more. Come see what I have been working on at the lake!
If your dates are booked at Ski & Glee already, check my other 2 properties at the lake. They are https://www.vrbo.com/161223 and https://www.vrbo.com/457987
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 more affordable 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.

I live in Northern VA near DC, retired from software development and enjoy managing my rental properties and running my Free Play arcade at Deep Creek Lake called Fun Unlimited, check it out at www.FunUnlimitedDCL.com
Owner purchased this House in 2011
Why 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.
What makes this House unique
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.

Best at the Lake
2nd Time here even better then the first. This place has it all no need to go anywhere else. From the game room w/ all the video games set to free play and a pool table. Outside Hot Tub and sauna big gas grill view of the lake & mountains! Indoor large swimming pool nice kitchen w/ a big table for all to sit and eat or play games. The only thing missing is you! The owner is both easy to work with and responsive to all needs. While your here check out his arcade Fun Unlimited also tons of fun! Can't wait to come back again & again.
Annual weekend of relaxation and fun
This is now the sixth year we have stayed at Ski and Glee. It is the perfect rental since you never know what mother nature will throw your way. Sixty degree weather on a ski trip (several years ago).. do mini golf. Or as this year had it... wind chills of 30 below zero. No worries, we had plenty of movies and video games to pass the time while we were not skiing/boarding. The owner is very attentive to any questions/inquiries. We look forward to scheduling our trip next year! Thank you for sharing your house with us.
Another great stay at the lake
This was our 2nd booking at ski and glee and it once again made lasting memories. The house and amenities are top notch and Rick is always available for questions or concerns.
Traveling with three generations poses challenges regardless of the destination, but Ski and Glee was perfection for everyone! From the three-year-old to her Pappy and everyone in between, we had a blast! The indoor pool, the amazing arcade, the impeccably maintained house--we couldn't have asked for a better winter getaway. It was a home away from home infused with all the entertainment a family could want. Rick was fantastic to do business with and made himself readily accessible--so much easier than communicating with a random website or company. He takes great pride in his property and renters reap the benefits. We will absolutely be back!
Deep Creek is nice, but we go for THIS house . . .
How do you write a review about a place that you love, and that you’ve reviewed years ago, but that you’ve grown to love so much more even, and have spent so many weeks and weekends there that you feel like you should write about it again? It’s hard to know where to begin . . .
We have spent time at all of this owner’s homes in Deep Creek, and so we have come to accept as a baseline his high standards of cleanliness, high quality linens, towels and mattresses. Thanksgiving can be especially challenging though, due to the need for a great kitchen, lots of accessories (6-7 enthusiastic cooks working throughout the day), and a huge dining table. Ski & Glee pulled all of these things off without a hitch and so much more.
The indoor pool was in full use throughout Thanksgiving day with kids swimming constantly yet in full view of parents at all times due to the huge windows between the kitchen/living room and the indoor pool — yet we were mercifully spared the noise due to the superb soundproofing. The meal itself was easy to manage with the huge table and close proximity (within) the gigantic kitchen, and made all the more memorable by the beautiful views just opposite the table, overlooking the lake and mountains.
After the meal the kids moved their energy into the spacious game room to play xbox and the many stand-alone arcade games, while the adults survived the post-turkey bliss by chilling in the living room and selecting a few movies from the nearly infinite — and very up-top-date video library. Once again we were spared the noise of kids having probably too much fun in the next door arcade room, by the excellent sound reduction that could be enabled between rooms. It made for an absolutely wonderful Thanksgiving day.
If you’re interested in a high end rental, with excellent value, where you end up feeling that perhaps you may have underpaid for the experience, then I submit Ski & Glee strongly for your consideration. It’s walking distance to the slopes, has amenities that are tough to match, has entertainment options for all ages and a floor plan that is amenable to comfortable multi-family interaction. In addition, all the little things that aren’t often considered initially, like quality of materials and the general fit and finish of the house, are superb and make for a truly unforgettable experience.
Deep Creek is a destination, but we GO for the house ...
5th Visit to Ski & Glee
Just finished my 5th consecutive summer vacation at Ski & Glee. As always, the kids and grandkids had a great time. They are already looking forward to going back again next year. The property is uniquely suited to large multi-generational families like ours as it has something for everyone from pinball, to a pool table, to electronic games, to board games, to an indoor pool, to a miniature golf course and so much more. The owner works hard to make sure that everything is in perfect working order, and if not, he comes out during your stay to fix whatever is wrong. And the rental cost is very reasonable for what you get. If you want a great property, with a nice mountain (and lake)view, and a bundle of things for everyone to do without even leaving the house, you should consider staying here.
Free arcade included inside the house. Pinball machines and arcade games free of charge in the game room. Indoor heated swimming pool viewable from any room on the main level. Free private 18 hole mini golf course right on the property.
