Be Wisp’d Away...

To your own wooded, lakefront hideaway. A boat slip, sledding hill and 3.5-acres of private trails allow for true year around fun. Nestled within one of DCL’s most tranquil coves, Wisp’d Away provides a warm atmosphere to enjoy the good things in life with good people. Whether it’s an adventurous day on the lake, reconnecting with nature or a cozy evening at the fire pit, here,
your time is all yours.

Located 20 min from downtown Mchenry & Wisp Resort your vacation awaits.
If one word were to describe Wisp'd Away it would be "Hygge".

If you have ever left a gathering of friends and family and felt as if you were wrapped in a hug, that is hygge; a feeling of comfort and joy, brought about by time with close-ones in a setting of effortless, cozy luxury that brings the outdoors in.

With an open floor plan and views of either the lake or serene wooded trails from every window in the house, Wisp'd Away provides for a simple, modern cabin feel. Impeccably furnished by local artisans, Wisp'd Away's high-end touches such as exotic stone kitchen counters, a brand-new, wifi-enabled, 8-person jacuzzi, 2 outdoor gas grills, 4 Roku Smart TV's, a bluetooth compatible Crosley record player, a Tesla level 2 charger and a massive stone fireplace located in the center of the house, leaves a luxurious modern-vintage feel in every space of the home.

The heart of the home: eating & drinking, oh my!

Inside, and on the main level, a wide open kitchen and dining area allows for seating up to 12 people, plus 1 infant highchair and 2 toddler highchairs. A large center kitchen island and bar give space for casual morning coffee and breakfast prep while a formal sit-down dinning table comfortably sits 10 for family meals.

The kitchen includes everything you need to cook a full Holiday dinner or prepare for a 4th of July celebration; with 2 stone sinks and ample counter space there is more than enough room for multiple cooks in this kitchen. A full-size, walk-in pantry affords for abundant storage and under cabinet lighting serves as early morning ambiance for sunrise cups of coffee.

Cuisinart pots/pans, cupcake/muffin tins, cookie sheets, pie plates, multiple casserole dishes, storage Tupperware containers along with mini-appliances such as a Keurig coffee machine, a drip coffee maker, toaster oven, rice cooker, Hot Pot pressure cooker, 2 blenders, tea kettle and an ice machine located in the freezer.

Downstairs, a mini-kitchenette area located in the movie and game room, allows for guests staying on the lower level, to make a quick cup of coffee and hop back in bed, as well as, a blender bar area for evening cocktails and treats during game times. (Keurig coffee machine, mini fridge, microwave & sink)

The Billiard's room includes a live edge drink rail and bar and mini fridge for late night fun without disturbing the rest of the house.

Outside, 2 gas grills and multiple seating areas give you various options for gathering. The upstairs patio consists of an 8-person dinning table and outdoor living room nook, while the downstairs walkout opens up to extra large Adirondack chairs, a round picnic table, a porch swing, 2 loungers and access to the jacuzzi platform with bench seating all around.

Captain, Pirate or Stow-away: work and play!

For all you Captains out there, the upstairs loft area has a dedicated workspace inclusive of a 24in-HD, flatscreen monitor and a HDMI cable for laptop connection. There is 1gb internet throughout the house.

Pirates, pick your playtime: on the lake, in the woods or are you an indoor stow-away?

Whether you are an adrenaline junky and want to push the limits waterskiing/wakeboarding, white-water rafting and tubbing or prefer to slow down with a stand-up-paddle-board (SUP), kayak or canoe trip, Wisp'd Away's lake frontage has you covered. Meander down a short private path to an assigned boat slip and dock.

SUP/canoe or kayak around Savage Cove to explore our wetland refuge and its wide variety of ducks, turtles and birds, or jump on your boat and head directly into the larger body of Deep Creek Lake for fun-filled afternoons of boating, sailing and tubing. Tie up an inflatable pad off the dock and spend a lazy afternoon relaxing in the sun. (Rental options for all water equipment referenced in the Guidebook).

Are you interested in a wooded adventure? Mountain biking, hiking, snowshoeing, and forest Hide-n-Seek tournaments?

Head out into our 3 .5 acres of private trails for a quick mountain bike or cross country ski warm-up-- before hitting some of DCL's larger trail system or play rounds of hide-n-seek in the woods with the little ones, build a fort, play freeze tag or climb, swing and flip with your littles on the Creative Playthings outdoor activity center. Your imagination is the only limit.

Indoor Stow-aways: need to rest a sunburn? Rainy day? Some alone time?

Every communal room in Wisp'd Away is arranged to foster a sense of togetherness, conversation and well-being.

On the main floor, the cozy living space makes perfect use of the large glass patio doors giving way to expansive views of the lake and woods, while a grand stone fireplace brings about a sense of intimacy and warmth. Local artisan furnishings and decor provide for just the right touch of under-spoken luxury while you sit and read by a roaring fire, or enjoy a glass of wine while listening to some music. The open floor plan across the kitchen/dining and living area gifts a feeling of oneness with all the activities of the home.

On the lower level, the main family room hosts a 70-in Roku Smart TV and massive cloud couch for movie nights and game times. A full-size, electric air-hockey table, dart board and multiple boardgames give options for more indoor fun. A private Billiards room grants additional space for separate groups to enjoy different indoor activities- the 7-ft pool table is just the right size for casual play.
