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

We found this hotel/resort, with an in-room fireplace, and full kitchen with a second in-room balcony one of the best in the area. The Staff is more than helpful and courteous. Very Reasonable! Everything is handy there! Restaurant and Boat/Jet Ski rental! We love it!!!

I love everything about this place from the 1970's wallpaper, to the aquatic area to the beautiful lake front views. People are great and Garrett County is neighborly. Situated right on Deep Creek Lake, this hotel is surrounded by a nice variety of shops and beautiful scenery. I highly recommend at all times of the year.

We ended up at Will O the Wisp after a pipe burst at Silver Tree Suites while on a business retreat and what a disappointment. It was more money, and while spacious, it was pretty outdated. We stopped at the bar on our way out to the Dutch's for dinner and that seemed reasonably priced with great service, but when... More

We booked a fall trip here two months ago in one of the Full-Bedroom-Loft Units on the 7th floor. Our stay here was an outstanding experience. When booking, our host Spencer, was extremely helpful answering my many questions. During the stay, the front desk was very helpful in offering recommendations and accommodating any requests (extra wine glasses and extra time... More

My partner and I rented a one-bedroom first floor condo (I believe it was unit 108) for five days at the beginning of Oct. 2013. We were very pleased with both the accommodations and the location. Staff was very courteous and the property was clean and welcoming thru-out. The condo itself was well-appointed and very comfortable for two people. The... More

We recently spent a couple nights here in a 7th fl. loft suite. The view from the balcony was spectacular. The 3rd fl hot tubs were perfect - warm and sparkling clean and the pool was 8 ft deep and also sparkling clean. The price was very reasonable. The actual unit was clean, and comfortably furnished though the bathroom is... More

We come every year (August) for a family reunion from California. This is a great place to stay. They have remolded quite a bit. Since every unit is privately owned they each have their own character. Their website shows the different rooms now, so very helpful. I like the 7th floor of you're looking for a romantic get-away. The ground... More

So my asst booked me a room here overnight on business and it was a pleasant surprise. The room itself was a bit like a small apartment so not like the normal business hotel, but it was a nice surprise. The rooms were clean but a bit dated, but the location and views were spectacular. The only drawback I found... More

From Pgh, we've been staying at Will O'Wisp for at least 8yrs. We find the staff pleasant and our room is always very clean and comfortable as well as nicely decorated. In some of the units, the bathrooms could use some updating, but they are very clean and the towels always look brand new. There are some rooms where the... More
