About Rick Holofcener

I purchased this property new in 1987 with 2 other college friends from Frostburg University College. The property has been maintained very well and re-decorated several times. I am currently living in Thailand and do not have the ability to spend much time there, so we have decided to rent the property to others.

Why Rick Holofcener chose Deep Creek Lake

We chose this particular unit because of its unobstructed views of Deep Creek Lake and easy ski-in/ski-out location. This is one of the only units in Villages of Wisp that has a great lake view.

Five Star Stay at Deep Creek Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this PERFECT townhouse. The house was lovely, convenient, had absolutely everything we needed. We would recommend the additional linen service - it was so nice not to have to bring linens, and worth very penny. Someone mentioned bringing Tupperware containers for leftovers- not a bad idea - we used freezer bags in a pinch. We will definitely be back. Thanks very much to Rick and the other owners !

Great ski rental @ Wisp!

  • 5 of 5

Our large family enjoyed a wonderful extra long weekend at Slopeside ski-in/out. The townhouse was exactly as depicted in the photos and in great condition. When we arrived there was not enough snow on the closest run (Eye Opener) to actually ski-in/out but there is a short hike down the street and across the road to get to a blue run (Down Under) which made getting on and off the runs easy through out the day. We enjoyed using the hot tub and did not eat out a single time (ample cooking utensils, pots, pans, dishes, etc.), recommend bringing your own tupperware containers. We opted not to get the linen service so if you decide to go that route, recommend bringing hot pads and or trivets, dish towels etc. for the kitchen. There were lots of games, books, movies to watch from the house and we made a fire (brought our own wood and fire starters). Overall we would absolutely rent this place again--the owner and property manager were very responsive to questions we had before and during our stay. We got discount ski tix from Costco and had no issues getting passes the night before we planned to ski. Check out the ski times for Wisp as they change throughout the week (no night skiing on Mondays and different holiday hours). We'd love to come back in the summer and check out the area during boating season. Highly recommend this property for family trips (we had 2 families of 4 people each). Thank you Rick!

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 4 of 5

This house is even nicer than the photos! Very warm and cozy, and we loved the hot tub, which was extremely clean. Nice kitchen, bedrooms were well appointed and comfortable, bathrooms look like they were just redone. Being an end unit is nice, too. We did not have much firewood when we arrived, but the rental company came within a couple of hours with more wood--but check as soon as you get in. What was there was probably 10-12 inches in diameter and way too big for the fireplace. Also could not get DVD player to work but that may have been our problem. Otherwise, it was very nice. Beautiful view in the winter. I highly recommend this property, you will have a wonderful time at Deep Creek here!!

Some good, some not so good comments

  • 4 of 5

Property was clean. Kids loved the loft. Very narrow spiral staircase to access. Kitchen appliances were good. Toaster oven was handy.

There was only one DVD player in lower level and it did not work. The family room had a VCR. No movies for us. Flat screen TV's were good.

We had to purchase fire starter sticks and matches. Bring your own if you want to use the fireplace. Wood was outside and wet. At the end of your stay you need to collect all the garbage and drive it in your car to the dumpsters on a different road. Yuk.

Skiing was great and Wisp/Deep Creek is a fun family destination.

Guys ski trip

  • 5 of 5

I rented the townhouse for 4 guys on a ski trip. Great place with a great location! Very clean and well laid out. True ski in and ski out from trails accessible from the back door. Big screen TV, hot tub, wood burning fireplace were all much appreciated amenities. I highly recommend this rental, and I will definitely rent again next trip to Wisp.

WOW the snow!!!

  • 4 of 5

We travel around to different ski resorts and always rent condos for the convenience of food and space. This is our third trip to Wisp resort and found the ski conditions this trip to be the best with 2' of new snow upon arrival and another 1' during our stay. Unusual but...LOVED IT!. The condo was ski in/out for our more advanced riders. The Mom skiiers walked to the end of the street and crossed over the guard rail to enter on the "down under trail". The condo had the best equipped kitchen of any that we have rented. While the condo was comfortable it needs some updates; new mattresses, kitchen chairs, dishwasher sounds like to was going to explode. The stars were given for the hot tub and location. Not having to drive and park was great and even better was the late checkout. Thank you!!
