Category: Deep Creek Lake Real Estate, Wisp Ski Resort
Some more quality exposure for Deep Creek Lake and Wisp Ski Resort. It’s nice to see the area getting the attention of a national publication and a Baltimore television station as of late. Here is a link to an article about the area that appeared in the Spring 2008 issue of Luxury Living Magazine.
It is interesting to note that the author of the article lives in Park City, Utah - which is another resort area with a much larger ski area than the Wisp. The author really has nothing but good things to say about the area and favorably compares the lifestyle and activities offered at Deep Creek Lake to those found at the larger western resorts.
The author does touch on a few real estate items in the article. She notes that a brand new home at Deep Creek Lake that costs $1.3 million would be considered a “steal” in Park City - where $1.3 million would only you buy a 2 bedroom fixer upper. Sure Park City and some of the other bigger resorts are larger than the Wisp - but Deep Creek Lake is much more accessible and easy to get to for someone from Baltimore, Washington D.C., or Pittsburgh.
We have many clients who own vacation homes here and in other resort areas - and speaking with them they always tell us they spend more time here at their Deep Creek Lake house than at their other vacation homes in other resort areas. When you factor in ease of accessibility, the lifestyle offered, and what you can get for the money - there is no doubt buying a second home at Deep Creek Lake is a great value compared to other resort areas.
