About Rick Holofcener

I purchased this property new in 1987 with 2 other college friends from Frostburg State University. 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 McHenry

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.

What makes this townhome unique

Ski-in/Ski out with spectacular views of Deep Creek Lake.

Fantastic access to the slopes

  • 4 of 5

The townhome is all the way on the end, right next to the slopes. The easy access was amazing! Overall we liked the house. Only issue we had was that with the bedroom/loft combo upstairs, it was open to the rest of the house. So noise really carried. Otherwise a great stay!

Thirty year old home needs renovation

  • 1 of 5

The property was spacious, plenty of sleeping accommodations, kitchen was fully equipped and it was in an excellent location with a beautiful view of the lake. However this home is badly in need of renovation inside and out. In fact our first impression when we entered the property was an unpleasant musty odor from the carpet and furniture which is badly in need of either deep cleaning or replacement. The majority of the window handles were not working; many were even broken. This was especially crucial because this unit did not have air-conditioning, which fact was not in the description of the property and only brought to our attention AFTER the second and final payment was made. The absence of AC also caused other problems like condensation of the toilets in the bathroom which resulted in wet floors and also mold in the laundry room. Lastly, the poor air circulation and moldy conditions exacerbated the upper respiratory condition of several family members who are asthmatic. They had difficulty breathing and had to increase the dosage of their asthma meds. Some might consider this to be a health-hazard.

Owner's Response: Thank you for feedback. We are sorry you had a negative experience using our place. After further investigation, it was discovered that the humidifier in the lower level had been overflowing and leaking water on the carpet. It was also discovered that there was a leak behind the refrigerator leaking water into the laundry room below causing the oder and dampness. These two items have been fixed and the oder is completely gone. Regarding the handles on the windows. We are having those replaced within the next 30 days. Our home does not have central air and it has always been advertised that way on this website. Since the temperatures in deep creek lake area are usually 15-20 degrees cooler than the city, air conditioning is very rarely needed in the summer. However, there was an unusual hot spell the period you were there. We do supply fans to use as needed. Regardless, we feel sorry that you had these issues. We would be glad to offer you a significant discount on our home if you would like to come up to the area again. I think you would be satisfied the next time.

Great place for several families

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful, well kept, and fully stocked. Three families stayed together, and we all had a fantastic time. The bigger kids bunked together downstairs in those fantastic triple bunks, and most of the moms (except the nursing mom) had their own beds. We enjoyed the hot tub while the kids played in the corner yard and the woods. Aside from a few windows that don't open properly due to broken latches and two stove burners that don't work (neither of which inconvenienced our stay in any way), everything was perfect. Thank you for a lovely experience for us and our kids!

Three Nights at Deep Creek, MD.

  • 4 of 5

Stayed three nights in mid June. Communication with the manager was good and he was very responsive. Overall the condo is fantastic and was available at a fair price. Very roomy and lots of space. Late check-in was easy, with a lock box at the rental office and everything was in order. The view was amazing and the location is close to everything. The appliances worked well, the WIFI was strong and cable TV was available in all bedrooms/main living area. There is no AC but the fans did a good job of keeping the place cool, especially on the upper floors. The hot tub was great, there was a nice grill and patio furniture to use also. The condo could do with a fresh coat of paint and some windows didn't open properly. But overall, it's in a great location, has lots of room and provided everything we needed for a great trip to the lake for a few days. I would recommend this condo to family and friends.

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 !
