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...

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...

I used a guest towel to wipe the inside of my rental car windows, one employee was very rude about informing me that I was not to remove towels from the room even though I returned it. When expressing my dissatisfaction of treatment to the front desk the previous employee overheard and began to argue with me. When I expressed...

Went there for ski trip. Great location, helpful staff, great pool, covered parking spots useful in the winter. The room that we were in 108 had 2 queen beds and a sofa bed. The living area had very poor insulation leading to high thermostat settings making the rest of the condo very hot. I have informed the front desk staff...

Beautiful lake view. Each apartment is different; we stayed in 309 which was a 1 bedroom on 1 level. It had 2 queens and 2 pull out couches in the living room. Love being across from the gameroom and down the hall from the pool *and hot tub!). Kids also like raquetball and playing lakefront. We forgot my daughters bedtime...

This was our first visit to Deep Creek and it ended up being a lousy trip! I rented a room at Will 'O The Wisp for my husband's birthday, and I had chosen the room (#714) specifically because of it being on the top floor (more privacy) and the amenities (two large flatscreen tvs, King-size bed in the loft, etc),...

We stayed two nights at the Will O' the Wisp while attending a wedding. We were originally given a studio room with a queen bed (with a receipt that said one bedroom) so be careful to call and be very specific if you want a separate bedroom and/or kind bed. We were able to upgrade to a nice one bedroom...

We were headed from Pittsburgh to New England for the Christmas holidays and the weather turned frightful. We got out the trusty GPS and looked for local hotels and stumbled on the Will O the WISP. All the units are fully equipped condos with lake view. Non-holiday and non-weekend nights are very reasonably prices. There is a wide variety of...

This was the first time we were at Deep Creek Lake. The unit we stayed in was a bit dated but very comfortable, with a great balcony, and every amenity we could need. The unit was very clean. We enjoyed the pool and the lake too. Dinner at the restaurant was very good and convenient. The parking was a bit...
