About Richard Wathen
We're a DC based family that has owned two Deep Creek properties. We bought this house because of its great lake frontage and closeness to the Wisp. We've been using at as a family house for over 10 years and are renting it for the first time.
Richard Wathen purchased this House in 2004
Why Richard Wathen chose McHenry
In the summer - its all about the lakefront, boating and outdoor living. It's a true lakehouse with your own space on the lake and docks. Lots of privacy - with a wooded lot on one side and only one occupied house in the immediate area - but close to the Mchenry MD family activities and access to I-68. In the winter - you can walk to the Mainstreet lift at the Wisp Resort and the main lodge is a 3 minute drive for easy drop off of everyone in the morning. There are a wide range of winter activities - skiing, cross country skiing and snow shoeing, snow tubing and ice skating minutes away.
What makes this House unique
Lakefront and indoor amenities geared to family activities. Great decks, a hot tub, grills and firepit. Great lake views and big modern dock. Its modern and decorated for a true mountain lake feel. Its proximity to Wisp and easy access to I-68 from the north end of Deep Creek lake make it a perfect weekend trip.

Perfect for family weekend getaway
We’ve rented several Homeaways and this one was exactly what we expected. Perfect location, view was lovely. We were there during off season, so it was quiet. Our family enjoyed hiking at Swallow Falls, and we went to the Garrett Historical Museum, well worth the trip. There is a nice grocery near the house that had amazing Donuts. Get them fresh early in the morning. Thanks for the great family memories.
Fantastic House Terrible Neighbors
I can’t say enough about how great the house was and how easy it was to rent with VRBO and the owner. The house was beautifully decorated and location on lake was gorgeous. Our only complaint was the only neighbors next to use for Saturday and Sunday night were extremely drunk, loudly shouting as drunk people do, swearing and playing their music some of which was vulgar rap. Our family does not drink in this manner or use such inappropriate language shouting it at the top of our lungs. I don’t know if they were the owners or renters like us. It really put a damper on two evenings by the fire we hope to have had. If they were the owners I would not rent this house again. Only negative part of our trip
This was the perfect getaway for me and my family. Right on the lake and about 2 minuted from the fun activities at Wisp. The house was a great size and very clean. We will be booking this again!
This is a great lakefront location - minutes to the supermarket, restaurants, and McHenry Beverage Shop!
Loved the outdoor fire pit on deck,hot tub and dock. Excellent location
In the heart of the Deep Creek Lake recreational area, but only 2 Hours 45 Minutes from DC (we've done it over 100 times in the last 10 years). In the summer you can buy your groceries, rent your boat and park your car for the rest of your vacation if you want to.
In the winter its a 5 minute walk to the Main Street Ski Lift at the Wisp Resort - or a 3 minute drive to the main lodge. Lots of other winter activities snow tubing, ice skating and cross country skiing all around.
