My husband and I just planned an overnight get away. Unfortunately Will O' the Wisp usually requires a 2 or 3 night stay most weekends during peak months. But we were able to stay the one night on a Sunday to Monday. We chose an efficiency which had been recently remodeled. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen was nice (but no stove or dishwasher....which we did not need), and the bathroom had a great shower and double sinks. Someone brought a large dog in the condo nearby and it barked relentlessly for quite some time. People came out onto their porches and said they tried calling the front desk. Within 15 min peace was restored and we could sit on the porch and enjoy our view of the lake without constant noise. There are plenty of places to eat within a short drive and a market you could walk to on a nice day. More of the condo's are being remodeled and updated. We used to be able to burn logs in the fireplace, but now they only allow the artificial logs (which makes sense). So be sure to bring some along or you will pay top $ for them. Their indoor pool is wonderful and is a good size....larger than the usual hotel pools these days. They appear to be constructing an outside seating/bar area to the one side of the beach, which should be a welcome addition. One thing I will add here about our room (205A), there is a see through blind that gives you a great view of the sunrise ....if you enjoy being up at the crack of dawn. But there is no curtain and the light comes streaming in. Since the bed is located next to the sliding door to the porch, you will be waking fairly early if you're a person who likes it dark while sleeping (like me).
