About the property

3* Bedroom 3 Baths Direct Lake Front, 5 minutes to Wisp

This 1,350 f^2 direct lakefront home is located 5 minutes to Wisp and sleeps 8.

There are two bedrooms on the lower level with steps to the lake, and one bedroom is actually an open loft.

With 3 baths, there is no wait to shower before evening activities. Bring your whole family and even a couple of friends, and stay in comfort.

There is a fully equipped kitchen and a large dinner table for everyone to have dinner together, but also try great eating out choices nearby. Do not forget to cook-out by the lake one night.

Linens are included

Roast chestnuts in the wood fireplace, and make use of a variety of books and games for a cozy evening. We hardly get around to watching TV there, but there is a nice TV with cable. Free wifi is available too, of course.

Dock your boat, bike, ski, kayak, swim and have fun!

About Jackie Krakovsky

We are a family of four from Gaithersburg, MD. Our two daughters, today 17 and 13 love this place, and their older and younger cousins do too. The area offers exactly the kind of active vacations kids love, and parents need! We use our home in Deep Creek at least twice per year; one week to ski, and one week in the summer. Our friends and relatives come here often as well.

Jackie Krakovsky purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Jackie Krakovsky chose Deep Creek Lake

We vacationed in the area for years, and always enjoyed it. One early June weekend, my older daughter and I came for a mud run on the top of Wisp. Then we took a couple of turns on the whitewater course. At dinner we were tired and happy, and discussed another wonderful day in the area. Then we turned to our old family conversation about how cool it would be to have a lakefront place that is also close to Wisp. The next day we rented a jet ski, and found ourselves staring at Lakewood from the water. As luck would have it, by the evening we were looking inside, and our pie in the sky dream quickly turned into reality. We've been ecstatic about this property ever since.

Great View

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I came here for Senior Week, and it was amazing! The view was great and there was so much to do. We went paddle boarding, white water rafting, kayaking, hiking, and antiquing. We stopped by The Popcorn Factory and Deep Creek Donuts. The house is close to all of these things as well as a ShopRite, and WalMart isn't too far away. The house was very clean and fit exactly our needs. Thank you for a great house that made our trip possible! I would highly recommend this rental to families as well as seniors, as long as you are quiet and considerate to the neighbors.

Nice lakefront townhouse

  • 5 of 5

If you want to be lakefront, then this is the place for you! Enjoy the view from the deck or walk down the steps to the swing benches lakeside. The townhouse provides 2 bedrooms and 2 baths downstairs. The other bedroom and bath is up on the loft. The living room and big dining table area provide ample space for family gathering. Kitchen has all the supplies needed. We found the check in services at a local rental company office to be efficient and convenient. Clean sheets and towels are included. Pets are permitted.

Bring your boat!

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed the townhouse, especially the beach area and slip for our boat. Of course, the beautiful weather didn't hurt, either.

The townhouse was well-appointed and comfortable. Having 3 bathrooms was fabulous. The owner was responsive and the local real estate company checked in on us. We had a wonderful vacation.

Enjoy Breathtaking view of the frozen lake within five minutes of Wisp, and all the amenities and fun activities winter vacation can offer: Ski, snow tubing, snow boarding, hiking.

In the summer, rent a jet ski, a kayak or a boat or use the private dock just steps from your back door.

Public launch facilities are just a couple of minutes away, and we have a trailer parking area.

Do not miss the championship whitewater course at the top of Wisp mountain with activities for all levels.

You will love a family hike in the Swallow Falls State Park. Not only does it have beautiful waterfalls, it is the oldest forest on the East Coast.

If you mountain bike, take a quick ride to the Wisp area. There are amazing downhill and trail opportunities. Other biking choices are too numerous to mention.

Rope course, mountain coaster and other outdoor activities are too numerous to mention.

... And just in case it rains, we have an indoor swimming pool, plenty of games and a fireplace.

For dinner, we like nearby Pine Lodge, and Unos for both lunch and dinner (though do not forget you have a kitchen).

5 minutes to Wisp. When it's busy in the winter, we just pay for Valet parking and save lots of time. Or park at the top, by the adventure center. If you rent skies, definitely park at the top parking lot; there is no wait there for anything.

Have fun!
