  1. Lake Front
    Any property that borders the state-owned ‘buffer strip.’ Lake Front means you have access to the water for swimming and a boat dock if applicable to your home. You can go directly to the water from your door with no road between. Lake Front does not necessarily mean you have a view of the water, since much of our shoreline is wooded.

The place was nice. Needs some things updated. Wouldn't want in the winter due to the steep driveway. We had an issue the entire time with the TV's. It appeared that the cable was disconnected, but the boxes and remotes all remained. We finally figured everything out with a couple of days left.

Hi Joe. Thank you for your feedback. We will be sure to look at your check out survey to see nay concerns you may have had for future rentals as well as send IT out to assess the cable situation. Otherwise we hope you had a good time and that we get the chance to rent to you again soon! Madison, Railey Vacations

The house is just as advertised. We've rented for years from Railey and this is the most secluded property we've ever had.. literally the end of the road and plenty of trees around. We were 9 adults, two toddlers, and a dog, and we had plenty of space for all of us with even a spare bedroom. We actually held a very small wedding on the property and it was a lovely venue. We had everything we needed, kitchen and grill utensils, sheets, blankets, towels, and firewood for the firepit, which we enjoyed every night. All in all, a wonderful weekend in a great house, in a secluded cove, and we would definitely rent again.

We hope the wedding was magical, Riley! So glad we could accommodate for the event and you enjoyed the home. We hope you'll be back to visit us again soon and thank you for taking the time to leave a review! - Jenn, Railey Vacations

Abbott's Bliss is an amazing house. We loved the fire pit and the large deck. The pool table was good to have although it is very work and the bumpers were bad. We also enjoyed the hot tub but only half the jets were working. Maintanice came to look at it but left without telling us anything and did not fix it. It was a walk to the pier.

Thank you for the feedback, Kathleen. We apologize for the lack of communication, typically the hot tub technicians try to get in and out as quickly and quietly as possible so as not to disturb our guest's vacation time. We'll certainly take a look at the pool table condition as well to see what repairs may need made. Glad you otherwise enjoyed the home and we hope you'll be back to visit again! - Jenn, Railey Vacations

We had the opportunity to stay at Abbot’s Bliss for a weekend in June during the Gran Fondo bike ride. The house was great for a group. The bedrooms were a good size with a suite above the garage. The kids enjoyed the hot tub and pool table. The kitchen was great for cooking meals for our group with plenty of seating. We needed a service call to correct the air conditioning, as it was hot this weekend. The technician came quickly and resolved the problem while we were at dinner.
