This is a group of individually owned condos - all with one wall lake views - that are rented to travelers. The two My husband Snook, and I have stayed in were beautifully and thoughtfully decorated. #106 on the bottom level where you can walk right out to the lake/beach had nouveau rustic delightfully comfortable spotlessly clean furnishings in addition...

I used a guest towel to wipe the inside of my rental car windows, one employee was very rude about informing me that I was not to remove towels from the room even though I returned it. When expressing my dissatisfaction of treatment to the front desk the previous employee overheard and began to argue with me. When I expressed... More

Went there for ski trip. Great location, helpful staff, great pool, covered parking spots useful in the winter. The room that we were in 108 had 2 queen beds and a sofa bed. The living area had very poor insulation leading to high thermostat settings making the rest of the condo very hot. I have informed the front desk staff... More

Beautiful lake view. Each apartment is different; we stayed in 309 which was a 1 bedroom on 1 level. It had 2 queens and 2 pull out couches in the living room. Love being across from the gameroom and down the hall from the pool *and hot tub!). Kids also like raquetball and playing lakefront. We forgot my daughters bedtime... More

This was our first visit to Deep Creek and it ended up being a lousy trip! I rented a room at Will 'O The Wisp for my husband's birthday, and I had chosen the room (#714) specifically because of it being on the top floor (more privacy) and the amenities (two large flatscreen tvs, King-size bed in the loft, etc),...

We stayed two nights at the Will O' the Wisp while attending a wedding. We were originally given a studio room with a queen bed (with a receipt that said one bedroom) so be careful to call and be very specific if you want a separate bedroom and/or kind bed. We were able to upgrade to a nice one bedroom... More

We were headed from Pittsburgh to New England for the Christmas holidays and the weather turned frightful. We got out the trusty GPS and looked for local hotels and stumbled on the Will O the WISP. All the units are fully equipped condos with lake view. Non-holiday and non-weekend nights are very reasonably prices. There is a wide variety of... More

This was the first time we were at Deep Creek Lake. The unit we stayed in was a bit dated but very comfortable, with a great balcony, and every amenity we could need. The unit was very clean. We enjoyed the pool and the lake too. Dinner at the restaurant was very good and convenient. The parking was a bit... More

We stayed in 506G. It was a little cramped for a family of 5 (three teens) but not too bad for 4 days. The staff was always helpful and nice. The room had a great view of the lake, though blocked a bit by trees. The pool and hot tub are clean and not overly chlorinated. The room itself was... More

This sign was on the wall of #306C, and we decided that means YOU the renter, not the owner. We paid more for a week-end here than we ever have before because we were celebrating our anniversary. The weather was supposed to be bleak, but there was a fireplace, movies, cooking facilities, and a nice pool and hot tubs. Imagine... More
