Deep Creek Lake is one of my favorite places to go – year round – or especially in the ‘off-season’ – Spring/Fall. We tried to stay pretty low-key on this trip… But we did make it over to Ohiopyle and visited Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Falling Water” house! Overall, the weather was typical April in the mountains. The ski slopes had closed the week prior…. But on the last day, we woke up to 4 inches of snow! Because it’s a lake and a mountain, the Summer AND Winter are busy seasons. But, if you go after the snow melts, but before it’s warm enough for water activities, you can score a really good deal on lodging. Will O The Wisp is a good option. It’s a condo complex right on the lake. Indoor poor, indoor games, restaurant/bar on-site. Each condo is privately owned — so they are all differently decorated/updated (some are rough — some are great).
