    ski weekend (in 60 degree temps)

    1 4 5

    Loved the house, great view of the slopes, well stocked, nice layout. Long and Foster was nice to work with, and responded quickly on questions regarding the hot tub. Only negative was that it was at times loud, as sound carried throughout the house.

    Always a great time!

    1 5 5

    This was our 5th year staying at Wisp Watch. It is a perfect ski retreat and makes trips to the resort and back easy, especially with young kids and those who have no interest in skiing but still want to walk over to the lodge, ice skating, mountain coaster, tubing, etc. This house is spacious and cozy all at the same time. We plan to keep coming back year after year!

    Manager's Response - 02/13/2014

    Thanks for your response. We can't wait to have you back again next year!

    Great stay right next to the slopes!

    Had a wonderful stay will 11 people at Wisp Watch. The location was perfect! We could go back to the home to hit the hot tub and grab a bite to eat after a morning on the slopes. After relaxing we were back in the snow. Perfect to be able to walk and not rely on the lodge. Also plenty to do for those in our party who do not ski/snowboard. The pool table was well used and was nice for everyone to walk to ice skating and tubing. Would definitely rent again!!

    Manager's Response - 01/21/2014

    Thanks for your review! This is the prime home for winter groups! Just across the street from the resort, and when you are sitting in your living room-it actually looks like people are skiing down into your front yard! Amazing! Glad you had a great time--hope to see you back again soon!

    Right by the resort

    1 5 5

    This was truly an amazing place to stay for the weekend. Price wasn't bad at all for being so close to the resort. We really enjoyed being able to just walk over to go snowboard, instead of cramming into a car and packing up the boards. Especially when we got snowed in on Saturday! Who wants to drive to the resort in snow? My family and friends said they would rent this house again and again! The amount of rooms and living areas was just perfect and the hot tub was very nicely placed, felt private and cozy with a view of the slopes too! Loved this house! Thank you!!

    Manager's Response - 01/11/2014

    Thanks for your review. Long and Foster and the owner of the home loved having you too! Hope you come back!

    Great Golf Stay

    1 5 5

    We had 8 guys staying at this location for a 3 day golf vacation, everything worked out great. Very nice property with easy access to the Wisp course and a short drive to Lodestone. This was our second stay here and we'll be back again next year.

    Nice house

    1 4 5

    We 18 people rented this house and a townhouse nearby called Deep Creek Village 20. We were 5 couples with 7-8 kids. We rented during the Memorial day Weekend. Anyways this house was perfect. Perfect view of the ski slopes, mountain coaster close by, Close to a nearby gas station/shop and save. House was nice and clean. Every bedroom had bathroom. Not much Kitchen countertop space. Water heater tripped after 1 day for some reason (or was shut off by owners before we arrived. So we had to wait 4-5 hours for water to get heated up. Hot tub temperature never went beyond 88 degrees so could not use it during that "bit-chilly-weekend". We are decent people: we kept and left it clean when we left. I would definitely go back next year because we like the combination of this house with a nearby townhouse.

    You won't find a better location

    This place is excellent and had everything we needed. Hot tub is great- you can watch people ski down the mountain from the hot tub and a few balconies. The best part is being able to walk to the resort. The house was clean, with extra blankets when needed. Plenty of pots and pans to cook and lots and lots of space for everyone. 1 fireplace was broken, but we checked it and let the renter know right away- we didn't get a response but I haven't been charged so I assume it was received and noted.

    Sorry for the delay in making this response, I've had some serious health issues since our summer vacation with our two daughters and their families at the Wisp Watch. Gosh, we loved it. The place was sparkling clean and very well equipped. The Long Foster staff have been consistently professional in this and our prior DCL vacations. God willing, we will be back next year.

    We had a wonderful time !!! Loved everything our house offered!! First time online pics where exact!!! Wonderful experience!!! We will not make it an annual trip!!!

    The location is Great ...Absolutely beautiful !!!

    Perfect for a ski vacation

    1 4 5

    Location and view of the slopes is amazing. Easy walk to main lodge/resort/lifts/rental/tubing park & Kids Wisp center. 5 bedrooms, decent size with 4.5 baths. Hot tub nice touch- hidden from road, but can still see the slopes. Perfect for families with kids (we had 3 families with kids staying- small kids do well here too). Great lay out, but in winter would recommend bringing extra blankets as the 2 basement rooms get very cold. Only complaint, there was no soap (not even kitchen complimentary) or toilet paper in any bathroom. One would think after traveling 3+ hrs L&F; or the owner could spare a square for guests.

    great place to stay

    1 5 5

    This house was a great place it is fully equiped with everything you will need even games for kid and adults to play. very clean i would rent it again.

    Great location and excellent shape.

    This house was in wonderful condition and had everything our group of 12 needed to have a great ski weekend. The kitchen is fully stocked and there are 4 1/2 baths which is great! The bedrooms are small but the common rooms (which is most important) are a great size.

    Wonderful Location, Close to Slopes!

    We had a fantastic time in this rental property. Rooms are well proportioned, house is well stocked with all amenities. It was clean and organized. Best of all, it is literally across from Wisp resort!

    We have stayed at this property before and found it to be excellent all the way around with regard to our needs for our family, location, cleanliness, etc. As always, the check-in process was simple and quick which is much appreciated.

    Wonderful experience & plan to return!

    1 5 5

    The house was perfect! It was spacious and had a homey atmophere. We loved being so close to the water and the resort. This allowed us to do a ton of things with the children without getting in the car! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. We are planning to return next year and return to this rental.

    Our family enjoyed this house. It provided the bed rooms needed and space to spreadout. We liked the location because it was close to the store, activities and resturants. The only negative we had was regulating the temperature in the house. the basement was quite cool, the middle level comfortable and the top level was on the warm side. Other than that, we enjoyed the house and had a wonderful family vacation.

    Great May Golf Trip

    1 5 5

    This property was given to us after our original property was sold a couple of weeks before arrival. Our golf group was more than please with the last minute switch. Everything worked out great from the property itself to the location to the Wisp course and restaurants. Very nice!

    We loved it!!

    1 5 5

    The house is simply perfect for our family & friends! We are looking forward to repeat visits for many years to come! Thank-You!!

    The house was great for our needs. Very clean. Nicely decorated. We appreciated the detail that went into supplying everything you could need in the kitchen.

    Great house

    This house had everything you needed. It was like being in your own home, but on vacation at the same time. Everyone had enough room.

    Perfect location

    1 5 5

    The house had everything we needed, it was clean, modern & comfortable, perfect location for fireworks show, easy lake access, restaurants and grocery store all near by.

    Fun place

    The house that we stayed in was really nice. Wisp Resort's snowmobile ranch and snow-tubing made our trip memorable.

    We had come down to Deep Creek to celebrate a birthday - there were four couples. Wisp Watch was the perfect accommodations for us. It was very nicely decorated, very clean, and location was great. Other than the rainy weather, the weekend was a success. Thank you.

    Perfect ski house

    1 5 5

    This was our 3rd year at the house. Easy to the slopes, especially with a bunch of kids! Lots of room, great kitchen, great bonus room. Only comment is that it would be nice if they had a few basic supplies (ie: olive oil/cooking spray so food does not stick to pans). Also, the ski entrance did not get shoveled out. Otherwise, great home and we have already booked for next year.

    Lets Do It Again in 2011

    1 5 5

    We had a great time at the house. The only problem we had was the water heater was to small so only two people could take a shower and then the water would be cold. Other than that the house was beautiful. Great location. Can't wait till next year. The people at the rental office was also very pleaseant and helpful.

    Great experience!

    1 5 5

    House is beautiful and conveniently located. We woke up in the mornings, and simply walked to the ticket booth (in our gear and with our equipment). Many things were provided to us, making the trip less stressful. Highly recommend!

    great for family get together

    Nice place for a large group. Basketball hoop and pool table nice surprises - give people things to do. Wish the water access was closer.

    Good with some cleanest isues

    We enjoyed staying at the house, especially on the 4th the fireworks display was wonderful from the patio. But the experience was somewhat diminshed dead bugs and flys all over the place. The area around the hot tub was full dead leaves from last fall and beer cans. After that I questioned if the water was even clean. I didn't use it, while others were willing to risk it. My TV cable didn't work well and the repair said it was because the TV was so old. We had to call multiple times to get trash pickup.

    Manager's Response - 07/29/2009

    Mother Nature is not always your best friend with the very natural setting here at Deep Creek Lake in particular the summer months. We do experience a lot of flying bugs. This is not necessarily a poor representation of the property itself but what occurs in every area. The debris outside should have been caught prior to your arrival and we do apologize for this oversight on our part. All of our hot tubs are serviced weekly in accordance with local code. In checking the issue with the cable television, the TVs in this home are 3 years old and it appears the trouble was in the cable box itself. We strive to make all of our guest?s experiences a positive one and we do hope that you come back to the Deep Creek Lake Area.

    Questions and Comments:

    Have you ever waited until the last minute to make vacation accommodation plans? Did your vacation opportunity just become available and you want to see what the current deals are?  This is a courtesy feature for you to use to bid on available vacation rentals.

    Bidding is only allowed for online customers.  Do not call about the bidding process-email only, however you can call our office to see what current discounts are being offered.  The discounts will be similar to what an accepted bid is expected to be.  The bidding form is not to get a lower discount than what is offered through our office, but a convenient tool to use so you do not have to call in.  Remember, not all homes will accept a bid, and sometimes, the discounts that Long and Foster offers will be more or exactly the same as what a homeowner might accept.  

    If you are within 5 days...make us a reasonable offer.

    Please be courteous and only submit serious bids.  Ensure that you read and follow the Last Minute Bidding Rules below, or your bid will be deleted and not considered.


    Bidding Process and Policies

    1. Review the properties using our reservation availability search to the left. Each property listing will have a “Last Minute Bid” Tab on the property page and this is what you will need to complete to be considered for that specific home.  Find the home you really want before you make a bid.
    2. Complete the form fully and honestly, and submit your bid. If not completed, it will not be accepted.
    3. Only submit a reasonable bid. A ridiculously low offer will not be considered and will be deleted immediately. Examples of considered bids will be 10% Off the advertised rate.  3 Nights for the rate of only 2. 15% off a 3 night stay, $150 off the advertised rate…for example.  Be smart, you know what a too low bid would be.
    4. Our Long & Foster Rental Staff will contact the property owner to determine if your offer is acceptable or if a counter offer shall be made by the owner, then we will contact you immediately with the result.  If the bid is thrown out due to a low offer, you will not get a follow up.
    5. When your bid is accepted, you will be required to pay for the lodging in full via credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover) and execute our standard lodging agreement within the next 90 minutes. Failure to do so will void your accepted bid, and we will not resubmit for approval.  Remember, if someone books before you confirm it, your offer is also VOID.
    6. Your right to the vacation property cannot be assigned or re-sold. Please carefully review our occupancy guidelines as this is your responsibility.
    7. Our standard processing fee, Accidental Damage Waiver Fee and taxes will be added to the agreed upon bid submitted below. No exceptions.
    8. A non-response after 24 hours shall deem the bid to have been unacceptable to the property owner, or thrown out due to an unrealistic offer, so please continue looking for a rental.
    9. We will only accept the first bid submitted in a given day per person/email address, so only 1 BID ALLOWED. If you bid on multiple homes, all bids will be thrown out. If your first bid is accepted, you will not be permitted to make additional bids unless you are looking at booking multiple homes or a different date.
    10. Please remember bidding is only allowed on properties within 5 days of arrival and only allowed for one home at a time. Bids that are outside of that 5 day window will be ignored and deleted, as will unrealistic bids.
    11. Please review the policies and procedures put forth by Long and Foster Resort Rentals and do not make a bid unless you agree to all terms.
