Take a snowy walk in the woods with you dog at Deep Creek Lake

Deep Creek Winter Trails and Tails

Hey four-legged friends!

My name is Camden and I am a local Deep Creek Lake pooch. Let me tell you: this is one great place to be a dog! I spend my summers splashing around the lake, swimming and running along sandy beaches. Falls are spent tearing through the fall foliage and rolling across the leaves. And let’s not forget my mom’s favorite: spring, where I am coated in mud 24-7.

But, winters are my absolute favorite time to be a dog at Deep Creek! There is nothing I love more than making fresh trails in the snow, rolling about, digging my snout in the snow.

Will O' The Wisp

Will O’ the Wisp Wins Southern Hospitality Award

Railey Mountain Lake Vacations is pleased to announce that our condominium property, Will O’ the Wisp Resort, was recently selected as one of ConventionSouth Magazine’s 2014 Hot Picks for the “Top 100 Southern Hospitality Hotels for Groups.” The list was comprised of hotels with meeting space located throughout 16 states in the U.S. South and the Caribbean Seas region.

Hotels were nominated by the readers and fans of ConventionSouth magazine, then researched and verified for qualification by the ConventionSouth editorial team. ConventionSouth Magazine is a national multimedia resource for planning events that are held within the South and the publishers of the annual Guide to Meeting Sites in the South.

Will O’ the Wisp
made the list, along with three other Maryland hotels – Princess Royale Hotel & Conference Center, Admiral Fell Inn, and Governor Calvert House. Editors sought hotels and resorts that offered ample meeting space, a charming appearance, attractive grounds, and top-of-the-line customer service.

“It is with great honor to recognize these hotels,” said ConventionSouth Editor/Associate Publisher Marlane Bundock. “For a hotel to offer Southern hospitality, it’s location, aesthetics, amenities and staff must present an all-around welcoming spirit for groups and attendees from across the country and world.”

Will O’ the Wisp offers 49 lakefront condominiums on the shores of scenic Deep Creek Lake. Each condo has lovely lake views, and guests will find a variety of amenities on-site, including an indoor pool and spa, a fitness facility, game room, Ace’s Run Restaurant & Pub, a level lakefront with sandy beach, complimentary boat docking, and plenty of water activities.
