My family and I stayed at the Wisp in July as part of a wedding party. The hotel, while better than others in the area, is a strange place. We saw multiple rooms, and the layouts are interesting, to say the lease. Our room had a bedroom with a queen bed, and a living room with a Murphy bed. The bed room was interior, with no windows. The small refrigerator was shoved into the hallway wall, next to the bathroom, not in the bedroom or living room. Very strange design. To be fair, the rooms were clean and quiet, and the views can be nice, depending on where your room is and the season.
The hotel's indoor pool is very nice, and much larger than expected. They also offer complimentary use of a beach area which is 2 miles away on Deep Creek Lake.
The activities at the resort in the summer are fun, but expensive. The mountain coaster is great, but one ride will set you back around $15 for two riders on one car. The zip-line courses are also pricey, costing $35 for the smaller children's course, which is not very large at all.
Overall, the Deep Creek area is very nice, but not the most affordable vacation. Rental houses are the norm, and hotels are few in number. The Wisp is not a bad hotel, but not one I would visit again.
