We stayed at a very nice vacation rental home during the 4th of July 2014 week. Enjoyed the pontoon boating on the lake --beat a storm. Watched fireworks from Wisp Resort. Most people were nice, especially others, also, visiting from out of state. Views here are beautiful.

We have stayed at the 2 B & B's that are lakeside and loved them both! These are the pricey side but worth every penny. It is such a great treat to be able to leave your room and jump off the dock into the clean, clear water. We discovered that The Wisp rents stand up paddle boards which we... More

Had an interesting experience at Ace's Run tonight. After we got the yummy pasta, the power went out because of a thunderstorm. The staff and management had to shut down the kitchen (which was sad) but they were SO nice and concerned about the customers, that it made it all right. We had just gotten served, and finished our meal... More

Loved the area. Very scenic (coming from Baltimore). Lots to do if you enjoy the outdoors. Very relaxing if you find the right spots. May be a challenge to keep kids occupied if you are looking for theme parks, but the water sports and hiking are good.

This was the 1st time we had spent a week at the lake. There was so much to do! We rented a boat from Bill's Marina & enjoyed the lake every day - from tubing, rafting, fishing, swimming & the beach. It was a great week!

Friends have a house on the lake, and it's such a great experience, relatively peaceful, lots of activities, and beautiful.

We rented two houses on the lake for a family reunion mid-June and were not disappointed. There is lots to do--the bike enthusiasts had miles of back roads and sweeping views to enjoy. The hiking trails are plentiful but make sure that the trail you are on is appropriate for the age of the hiker--we did some "carrying" which adds... More

After 5 days in Washington, DC, we drove to the Deep Creek Lake area for a few days of quiet and some fun, outdoor adventures. Nice area, great folks everywhere you go, beautiful landscape. Even saw our first bear! Great experience for the whole family.
