Lakefront property hasn’t been this affordable since 2004! (email me for stats) Here is part of a post I recently put on the Railey Realty blog:
Lakefront prices haven’t been this low for quite some time and there are some really great deals out there right now for any price range. Visit my website (i♥DeepCreek.com) or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more info on any of these Railey Realty listings!
Fractional ownership has its advantages – being on the lake for $139k in one of the nicest lakefront townhome communities at Deep Creek Lake, Creekside
, is one of them! Another advantage is the sweet Bennington pontoon boat they just purchased for owner usage – you pay only for the gas! It’s not a timeshare; they work much differently and you actually own a deeded 1/8 share. They are professionally managed, incredibly well appointed, and now you can ‘swap’ time at other locations throughout the year, including Wisp Ski Resort, several locations in North Carolina and even Costa Rica.

A Deep Creek Lake legend – Will o’ the Wisp
condominiums. A lakefront condo that is close proximity (~ 1/4 mile) to the Creamery, the Honi-Honi bar, Garrett 8 Cinema’s and Arrowhead Deli & Grocery. First floor units are coveted because they walk directly out to the water, a sandy beach and your deep water dock slip. The hotel has a lakeside restaurant onsite, indoor pool, hot tub, fitness center, laundry facilities, outdoor swimming area and even an arcade. And they are income-producing! Front desk management and hotel staff make overnight & weekly rentals a breeze. More photos here.
I’m a huge Ski Harbor
fan. That’s the first community I ever invested in at DCL, and one of the biggest reasons was the location & amenities. There’s over 1,700 ft of lakefront – more than virtually any other condo/townhouse community. It’s surrounded by no-wake zones on both sides of a peninsula, meaning quiet and calm waters to kayak, fish or swim. Your dock slip just outside your door, and the best seat in the house for the 4th of July fireworks just across the water at Wisp. Add an indoor pool, tennis court & beach volleyball – a great combination of amenities! More photos here.
2 bedroom lakefront cottage at Hazelhurst. You won’t find a better lot in this price range with 2BR cottage already in place & a newer 2 car garage to park your boat and store your toys.
Mature trees offer plenty of shade and you have wide views of the lake on 50 feet of frontage. The Type A dock allows 2 power boats – most other homes in this range only have one boat slip available. And Hazelhurst is a great community to live in on the lake, tucked away on the southern shores of Deep Creek. More photos here.
Want to be closer to the action? This 3BR cottage on Rock Lodge has 1.59 acres of land and a whopping 228 feet of water front. This home is close to the Wisp Ski Resort and Deep Creek Lake State Park, as well as activities and restaurants. It was originally built in 1937 and upgraded over the years. It features solid wood beams and wood stove in the living room. It also has a Type A dock, deep water and great views of the northern areas of the lake. You can watch boats passing by all day from your yard or your deck. More photos here.
Lakefront property with a newer home – Waltons Landing offers a quality home built by Nemith Builders. Built in 2008, this is a 3 level chalet and is decked out w/ custom granite, ceramic tile, hardwood floors and modern kitchen finishes. Lakefront area offers a 5-slip common dock & a ‘no wake’ cove. This property is in the heart of McHenry and is a very short distance to Ledo’s pizza, McHenry Beverage Shoppe, and Funland. Wisp is just around the corner. Excellent potential to rent as a vacation home! More photos here.
