It had been years since we stayed here and the outside of the building showed every year. Very little had been done to keep up the exterior; building façade, sidewalks, parking lot. . . all were pot-holed, cracked, and in disrepair. But since the condo rooms are all individually owned, they were a pleasant surprise. We stayed in two different... More

This place sits on the lake and has a decent dock, and nice restaurant and bar, The rooms are basically rentouts owned by someone, with a kitchen and nice view of the lake. Fairly close to some good restaurants and icecream... walking distance. Decently priced for the holiday too... some aspects come off as a little old and run down.... More

Spent the weekend at Will O' the WISP with my college friend. We were so impressed with the accommodations and the front desk staff. The condo (2 floors) was fabulous, faced the lake and we will definitely return. The staff were professional and friendly. 👍👍👍👍👍

After a few years of not staying at Will O' the Wisp due to the rooms being so outdated, we decided to stay for a weekend in January after seeing some nice room updates on the website.

My husband and I really enjoyed our weekend at Will O the Wisp in Deep Creek. It was quiet and clean. The room (loft level) had a great lakefront view for a very reasonable rate. We had a balcony and fireplace. Perfect location. It was very quiet, nice for couples. If you are planning to bring children in the colder... More

We stay here everytime we go to Deep Creek. Some of the units are dated but the sandy beach and the indoor pool make up for it. We love seeing the same staff year after year. My favorite thing to do is sit on the floating dock in the sun. It's quiet and peaceful. You won't regret it.

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
