If your dates are booked at Ski & Glee already, check my other 2 properties at the lake. You can click the Owner Info link and then the All My Rental Listings link **********
Ski & Glee is located in a Ski in/Ski out access community next to 'Main Street' ski slope on top of WISP mountain. It has panoramic views of Deep Creek Lake and the surrounding areas. It is private but conveniently located to all the necessities. Ski & Glee boasts an indoor heated swimming pool which can be supervised through large glass windows in any of the main level rooms. An outdoor hottub allows you to soak while overlooking the lake in peaceful tranquility. An outdoor Sauna is next to the hot tub with a view of the lake through the glass door. Ample seating on the brick paver patio provides great outdoor gathering space.
The property has 5 king bedrooms and 2 queen sleeper sofas with 6.5 baths. That's 5 master suites, very desirable so that everyone feels they are getting an equally equipped room. Granite countertops, double ovens, microwave and fully stocked kitchen make for spectacular meal times. The outdoor gas grill adds to your cooking options.
Linens are provided and unlike most rentals, these are not the cheap see-through white linens from the linen companies that the rental agencies use. These are 650 thread count sateen finish sheets and luxury micro dry towels.
Most notable is the endless entertainment provided by the 73' HDTV in the Living room with an HD DVR, 55' LCD HDTV in the Game room with an HD receiver, 2 Xbox 360's, one with Kinect 3D motion, 10 real arcade video games, 2 pinball machines, pool table and hundreds of movies at your disposal.
Keyless locks mean you never have to find or return keys as well as peace of mind in knowing that no previous renter can obtain access during your stay.
Please take a look at all the other rental properties on VRBO and the 3 major rental companies in Deep Creek. Compare the 5br houses with indoor heated pools to Ski & Glee, I welcome the comparison! I have done my research and I am far cheaper yet offer far more. The only property you will find that will compare is my other property, Cloud 10 also here on VRBO (VRBO listing #161223) which is a 4br home.
Don't let bad weather hamper your enjoyment of your vacation. I know this goes without saying but 'happy kids make happy parents!' (It's also a given that men are just big kids)
Don't think of Ski & Glee as just skiing when it comes to outdoor activities. You are walking distance to the ASCI sports center at the top of WISP mountain which boasts the only mountain top white water rafting course in the world! WISP offers many non-winter activities such as ziplines, mountain biking, mountain roller coaster, dune buggy rentals, rock climbing and more. You are less than 2 miles from 2 different 18 hole golf courses as well. Trust me when I tell you that you will not take advantage of all that Deep Creek has to offer in one trip.
Come see why Ski & Glee is aptly named for the skiing and fun you will have while visiting here.

I live in Northern VA near DC, retired from software development and enjoy managing my rental properties.
The Owner purchased this house in 2011
To be honest, the close proximity to the airport. I flew in for lunch one day and fell in love with the area. True 4 season resort. There really isn't a season where you can not find enjoyment in Deep Creek. Winter and summer are obvious but spring and fall are beautiful. Leaves changing in the fall along with the festivals then Spring hiking and visiting water falls etc just make for an enjoyable trip anytime you come here.
This is my second vacation home in Deep Creek, the first one convinced me what a great area this is.
Ski & Glee on the northern end of Deep Creek lake is unique in that it is close to everything you really want to do while visiting. Everything you need such as groceries, alcohol, bars, ski slopes, marinas, arcades, batting cages, coffee houses etc are mins from the house. The indoor heated swimming pool along with outdoor hottub, dual xbox 360's, xbox kinect 3D motion, 100's of streamable movies and arcade make for entertainment no matter what the weather conditions or time of day/night. I manage the maintenance of the property myself and feel I do a much better job because it's mine and I actually care. This is one property that shines above other rentals in that it's always kept up and maintained, after all, it's got to be good enough for ME to stay there and I'm a hotel snob.
This was our first time at Ski & Glee and it was everything we hoped for and more. In April Deep Creek has no skiing or outdoor sports and we were there with our families and young grandchildren. My husband and I commented that there was not one fight among the little ones and we're sure that's because they were having so much fun and had so much to do ... including multiple "tournaments" in the arcade room. We especially appreciated the alarm system on the pool which put our minds at ease with the kids. The place is just beautiful and the VERY large screen TV was a hit, as well as the incredible selection of movies to watch. We feel that the expense and time we take for these get-aways is well worth it when we can see our families and cousins growing close. The dividends will be seen in years to come and Ski & Glee made it possible in a great way.
We just left Ski & Glee and could not have been happier. The arcade and pool were a kid's dream!! They all cried when they had to leave. The layout of the house is great, the pool is much larger than the pictures suggest, and all of the bedrooms were large and well-appointed. We absolutely loved the sauna (get very hot which was great!) and hot tub. We will hopefully be coming back next year, and found Rick a pleasure to deal with and super responsive! Thanks!
We just finished our third visit to Ski and Glee. This place never gets old. The views out the expansive set of glass doors off of the kitchen are incredible. These are the same views you have when relaxing in the hot tub after a great day of skiing. The kitchen is fully stocked with all of the tools you will need to create a feast. The owner is extremely attentive to any questions with a prompt email or text. There should never be a boring moment when staying at this home. One of my friends' families already ask me to reserve the house for next year.
My family and friends stayed at Ski and Glee over the 2015 New Year holiday. We were three families which included 6 adults and 7 children (ages 9 to 2). The place is absolutely wonderful! The kitchen had all the necessities to cook nightly meals for the hole gang. There was plenty of room that we call eat together in the kitchen/dining table. The arcade and pool provided the children plenty of activities when we were not on the slopes. The entire was perfectly maintained, with a great selection of movies to watch in front of the gas fireplace. Everyone had such a great time! Thank you!
Best place to stay with family and friends. Huge eating area for large groups, house kept in immaculate condition for the last 3 years that we have stayed at Ski and Glee. So close to the top of the slope where you don't have to worry about parking and avoid the crowds for tickets and just start skiing. The skiing was a bit limited due to the warm weather but with so much to do in the house, we did not lack in entertainment. Most importantly the owner is extremely responsive to every need and concern. The amenities on this property is extraordinary. This home is a must if you are looking for relaxation while your children stay entertained but if you are also a kid at heart this home is the best!!!!! Treat yourself to great accommodations.
Our family stayed at Ski and Glee this summer. 6 adults and my 5 grandkids (9,7,7,6, and 3). My son did not think there would be enough to keep us and the kids entertained for a week (he and his family are BEACH people). Ski and Glee had everything there so we never heard..."we're bored, what can we do"! Between playing putt-putt, swimming, horseshoes, bonfires at night and the arcade room, we could have stayed in and never left the property. As a matter of fact, it was hard to get the kids to leave the house to do the other amazing things Deep Creek had to offer. From hiking to the waterfalls to horseback riding to everything Wisp offered and a bonus of attending the local Garrett County Fair, our days and nights were filled with fun. The home itself was outstanding. CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN!!! Having 5 private bedrooms was fantastic. The kitchen had everything you have in your own home. With 11 of us it was great to have a double oven. This was as wonderful a vacation I could ever hope for with my family. I hope I can get the chance to go back again. Thank you Rick for such a welcoming and amazing vacation home. I would DEFINITELY recommend this to anyone who wants a vacation at a mountain paradise.
Free arcade included inside the house. Pinball machines and arcade games free of charge in the game room. Indoor heated swimming pool viewable from any room on the main level. Free private 18 hole mini golf course right on the property.
