Seasonal draws in Wisp Resort

By summer, Wisp Resort is a verdant patchwork of manicured fairways, glowing yellow bunkers, and pitch-perfect greens, all interspersed with roaring whitewater rivers and encircled by the boat-peppered shores of Deep Creek Lake. By winter, the hills of the surrounding Appalachian Mountains come blanketed in snow, the chairlifts creak into action, and the whole place is given over to powder hounds looking for a ride. You can bag your Wisp Resort vacation rentals whenever you want, and even opt for bubbling hot tubs and summertime porches if they take your fancy, too.

Things to do

Wild Wisp Resort offers family attractions

This one's different to most vacation destinations. Here, Wisp Resort is the attraction. An all-in-one adventure playground for the whole family, it's got boating, skiing, golfing, hiking, biking, snowshoeing, skating, water cruises, kayak sessions, rollercoasters – what more could you want? If you are ready to break away from your Wisp Resort vacation rentals, there's always the beaches of the Deep Creek Lake State Park, or the wild hills of the Savage River State Forest to explore. And the sprawling Monongahela National Forest is less than an hour to the south, offering a real glimpse at West Virginia's hinterland.


Wisp Resort is all about the outdoors

Buckle up those ski boots come winter, folks – Wisp Resort vacation rentals with ski-in access mean you can be the first carving over the 34 slopes by morning, and the last off the pistes when the night-skiing floodlights go out in the evening. And if the winter ice isn't about yet, Wisp Resort has an altogether different outdoor adventure up its sleeve. That one involves heart-thumping mountain rollercoasters, archery lessons, orienteering courses, golfing, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, pontoon tours of Deep Creek – the list goes on.


Sun lovers and powder hounds all love Wisp Resort

There's never a bad time to come and enjoy all that Wisp Resort has to offer. The winter months of December, January, February, and March usher in the ski season, which sees powder hounds flock to the ski-in, ski-out rentals all around the pistes. The spring is great for dodging the crowds, but also catching the pretty forests of April and May. Summer sees the resort burst with vacationers, hikers, bikers, and outdoorsy types, and September and October are great for watching the Appalachian woodlands change color.

Natural features

Wisp Resort is surrounded by nature

Wisp Resort sits in a fold on the north-western side the Appalachian ranges. It's located deep in the panhandle of Maryland State, surrounded by pockets of woodland, rivers, and hills. You can visit the Deep Creek Lake State Park by foot from many a Wisp Resort rental, and enjoy the little lakeside coves and boating sectors there. For something even more wild, you can hit the South Savage Mountain Natural Area or the Savage River State Forest, which both mingle with each other to the north-east, offering walks on the Meadow Mountain Trail System, the Monroe Run Trail System, and others.
