After a few years of not staying at Will O' the Wisp due to the rooms being so outdated, we decided to stay for a weekend in January after seeing some nice room updates on the website. We made our reservations over a month in advance and asked about a 15% off special that we saw online - we were...

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...

We stayed at Will O' the Wisp when my husband was competing in the 2015 SavageMan 70 triathlon at Deep Creek Lake, I am so glad we found this condo complex as it was the PERFECT location for us (only ~3mi from race start). This whole area is really cute and has lots of recreation activities - Will O' the...

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...

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...

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...
