At The Start Of It All offers the perfect lakefront retreat for those looking for a central location to enjoy both on the lake and off the lake fun at Deep Creek! This beautiful contemporary home is located within walking distance to the fairgrounds, Funland, and farmer’s market and a short drive to Wisp Resort where you’ll enjoy thrilling adventure all four seasons.

As you step inside, you will be greeted with a warm and inviting atmosphere flooded with natural light and vaulted ceilings accented with wood planks. You are sure to feel like you stepped into your second home. The great room is where you and guests will spend much of your time, gathered around the stone fireplace where you will be able to unwind and share the latest happenings in everyone’s life. Adjacent to the living room is the large modern kitchen with granite countertops offering ample space to prepare delicious meals on the updated stainless-steel appliances. Serve them up at the breakfast bar or fix up the dining room table with seating for 8.

The upstairs master will be a delight and features vaulted ceilings, a comfortable king-sized bed, large windows with lake view and gas fireplace with flat-screen TV. You will also enjoy the large ensuite bathroom with separate shower and jacuzzi tub. Your guests will be equally as comfortable with two bedrooms also outfitted with king-sized beds and lake views. The 4th bedroom is perfect for teenagers, located on the lower level, it features twin-sized bunk beds and private access to the lower deck.
Also on this level is the rec room with pool table, gas fireplace and flat screen TV. Watch a game as you challenge your guests to a game of pool. No need to head upstairs for a drink, your wet bar will come in handy for fixing a kick drink and late-night snacks.

Outside you will have your own dock if you want to bring your boat or rent one locally at the nearby marina. At The Start Of It All is the perfect spot to watch the annual Fire On The Mountain 4th of July fireworks display, too! Enjoy the show from your deck, dockside or head out a short distance and float in the middle of the lake as Wisp Resort is just around the cove.

Come winter, you will also be a short drive from the ski slopes, downtown McHenry, and the Market Square Shopping Center. No need to worry about getting around when there is snow on the ground during your stay here!
As the day ends, make sure you spend it cooking out on the gas grill and enjoying dining al fresco as you share a bottle of wine and pitcher of refreshments. And no day would be done without a soak in the hot tub as you star gaze and relax in the bubbling warm water.

No matter what time of year you choose to visit, there's always something to do when you stay At The Start Of It All. During the fall, enjoy the changing foliage, pumpkin patches, and hayrides. In the winter, Wisp Resort is a must for skiing and snowboarding. Springtime offers scenic hikes to enjoy wildflowers and beautiful waterfalls as the snow melts. Of course, in summertime you will take advantage of the warm temperatures to hit the lake kayaking, paddleboarding and boating, or take a bike ride at one of the local State Park trails.

At The Start Of It All is sure to provide the amenities and comfort you need to make the most enjoyable memories with those closest to you. Book your stay today and don’t miss out on four seasons of fun in a prime lakefront location!
