Property description

1,350 f^2 lakefront home 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!

Car: Necessary


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!


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: We are a family of four from Gaithersburg, MD. Our two daughters, today 14 and 10 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.

Why McHenry, MD, USA:
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.
