Located on top of Wisp Mountain, DC Highlands is an exclusive gate community. Guests staying here enjoy numerous community amenities such as the outdoor swimming pool (June 17 to Labor Day), a small playground, tennis courts, as well as many walking and hiking trails. Use of the Lakeside Park, with a covered pavilion and bathroom facilities, is included and is located approximately a five minute drive down the mountain.  Your check-in packet will provide the code to the restrooms.  Please note that only “walking and fishing with a license” along the lake is permitted unless your rental home has special deeded additional lake access rights.  All boat docks are private property; please do not trespass.  Swimming and kayak access is available at Deep Creek Lake State Park.

Tennis Courts

The courts are open 24/7, but they are not lighted.  Please keep court time to one hour when others are waiting.  No bikes, skateboards or roller blades on the court. Please remove all balls, containers and water bottles when leaving.


There is a great pavilion adjacent to the pools and tennis courts.  The pavilion has comfortable chairs and tables to picnic or read on.  We also a a great wood burning fireplace (BYOFW) which is perfect for smores and conversation.  All fires should be extinguished by 11 pm. Please turn off the lights when finished and throw trash in the designated dumpsters in the parking lot.


Got little ones?  Feeling young?  Jump on the slide or climb the monkey bars.  The only rules are be safe and have fun.  Open year round.

Walking Paths

There are miles of beautiful walking paths and trails in the woods and to the lake in DCH.  Some are paved, some are wood chipped and some are authentic (beaten down growth). All are relaxing and filled with beauty and solitude.  The walk to the lake is a leisurely walk down, but a great exercise routine on the way up.  Lots of steps!
