January Fun

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice weekend with family and friends. The house is very roomy. Having 5 bedrooms is great. The gas stove warms up the main floor nicely. The house is close to Wisp but you do need a 4WD vehicle to reach it in bad weather. The owner was very responsive. The game room was a nice bonus.

I am very grateful to have discovered such a nice place. Perfectly located and very easy to relax. We did not want to leave! Nice sized bedrooms and bathrooms. I never got tired of sitting on the deck watching the view. The owners did a great job. Thank you!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This house is at the same time private and close to all the activities in McHenry. Worked very well for a guys' weekend...spent a whole day at nearby Wisp Resort. Very close to the grocery store and local restaurants. Lots of room inside, great deck outside, and the game room is a nice touch. Campfire was a nice way to unwind after the busy day.

If you want a peaceful stay close to the action of Deep Creek, this is a great choice. Owner was very good to work with.

Huge House, Very Private

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house, very large and spacious. Great game room in the lower level. Private location but close to everything. Living room very comfortable with large flat screen and every television station you can imagine. Kitchen was fully equipped and easy to find everything. Three nice bathrooms. All the rooms are very large. We stayed for only two nights, but next time, we will be there longer. Easy rental process and owner is very easy to work with. Can totally recommend this property for families, people traveling with dogs, just about anyone.

No Cleaning Fee added to these rates, it is already included in price. Also, linens already included too. Master Bedroom with King Bed on upper floor with master bathroom that has a separate deep tub, and stand up shower. Upper floor also has a loft. Main level has two bedrooms with Double beds and large closets. There is also a full bathroom with tub/shower on this level. The main level is the entertaining and hang out area. It has a large living room with a cathedral ceiling, a kitchen and large dining table, a sectional sofa, a 42" flat HDTV, and two French Doors to look out at the beautiful view. There is a 500 sqft deck with table and chairs, and a grill to make the perfect evening hangout. Full kitchen with all necessary appliances, coffee maker, crock pot, toaster, microwave oven, and blender. It also has plenty of plates, cups, glasses, silverware, and pots and pans. Lower walk out basement area has two bedrooms. One has a twin bunk bed and a twin bed. The other has a double bed in it. There is a full bathroom with tub/shower on this level. Washer/Dryer room in lower level. Lower level also has a game room that consists of a ping pong table, air hockey table, and a foosball table. There is also a sofa that pulls out to a nice double bed. A TV/VCR is in this room too. There are also plenty of board games available. Towels and linens are included. We also ask for the renter to do a simple wipe down cleaning before they leave. We also ask if all the bed sheets and towels can be put in the washing machine and washed, and then put in the dryer. That way when the cleaning company comes they are ready to be put back on the beds, etc. Money may be taken out of the initial security deposit for any damages or extensive cleaning needed. Cell phone service is fine at the house. One TV are at the house with cable, which is plenty! Although the property sleeps 12, we would appreciate no more than 8 adults total. So 8 adults and 4 children are fine. The main reason for this is that there are bunk beds in one bedroom downstairs and this could be difficult for an adult. Also, the driveway really only has parking for 3 cars/SUVs and could be tight if there were anymore.
