This place to stay has some amazing rooms. Every room has a great view of Deep Creek Lake. In the room that we stayed in,there were TVs in every space besides the two bathrooms and the kitchen. There was definitely enough sleeping space. We also enjoy the indoor pool and exercise room. We enjoyed it.

We're such beach people but this time thought heading to the Mountains would be a great change. And it was. Will o the Wisp is right on the lake. Although it offers hotel-type rooms we stayed in the condos. Right off the bat, be clear that many of the condos seem to have their original owners. So very few have... More

Very nice place, clean, quiet, romantic, nice pool, convenient parking, great views of the lake. Would stay again for sure. Prices in the fall were great but when I looked to stay in the summer it was kinda pricey, probably because it's right on the lake.

So want to start off by saying that the front desk and staff at Will O'the Wisp are wonderful. The problem with this vacation was that the condo's are owned by individuals and there is nothing that makes those owners keep up their condo's to standards. We had a reservation for room 514, which it was obvious when we walked... More

We went this weekend and stayed at this place. Had a nice balcony overseeing the lake, their own beach on the lake and docks you could fish from or swim from. Nice indoor pool and two hot tubs joined together with a falls from the top hot tub into the bottom one. Nice restaurant on site and the staff were... More

We spent six days here and really enjoyed it. Truly amazing view. The lake is right out the door, with a dock to jump off. The pool is huge and the hot tub has a small waterfall! The staff is so friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant attached to the condominiums with excellent food. The room was very clean... More

Good location. The room was great and we had a nice view of the lake. Kitchen was fully stocked with all needed items. We were a short distance from lots of great activities and food. Clean, comfortable and just like home. The pool here was AMAZING. Great for rainy day fun.

Very warm and friendly place to stay. Unique condos and all the amenities. The staff was just fantastic , met our every need and then some. Right on the lake, beautiful view and located in the middle of anything you'd need. Very nice docks for boaters.

I have read the other reviews and they are not incorrect, but for the price you get a lot. For a young family, the indoor pool and hot tub is key. No other facility has the indoor pool on grounds. We stayed in the 2 bdrm cottage closest to the hotel and it was perfect. Yes, a dish drying rack... More

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...
