We had a great time at this house. It was exactly as advertised and came with everything we could need. Something to take note of is that the hot tub is on the smaller side and fits no more than 4 people at a time.

We appreciate your feedback Sarah! We hope you had a wonderful time with us and please come see us again soon. Madison, Railey Vacations

I highly recommend staying here! The house was perfect for our large group and allowed everyone their own space and privacy. The home was exactly like the pictures and clean. The kitchen was fully equipped with all of the appliances, utensils dishes that would be needed to make daily large meals. I appreciate Riley Rentals for their accommodations made to our booking and the extremely good customer service. Their team was incredibly professional and helpful with all of my questions. I cannot wait to return and try out additional rentals they have available.

We appreciate you taking the time out to leave us such a thoughtful and kind review Nadia! It's great to hear that the home was well kept with everything you could've needed and more. Also we are pleased to hear that we were able to easily assist you with anything you needed and hope to have the opportunity to rent to you again in the future. Madison, Railey Vacations

Afterglow is a fantastic home! The location is perfect, close to everything but with enough space between houses, tucked into the woods, to make it feel like you're really getting away from it all! The layout of the house was perfect for our vacation with another family - we all had plenty of space for everyone! We've rented many homes, and were especially impressed with all the kitchen amenities - high quality pans and appliances, made it even easier to feel right at home! We will be back!

Hi Erin! Thank you for taking the time out to leave us a review! We are thrilled to hear that the home was well equipped with everything you needed and that there was plenty of space for all to spread out! We look forward to seeing you again in the future! Madison, Railey Vacations

This house was awesome! The house is beautifully furnished, clean, comfortable, and has tons of space to hang out and relax. The location is beautiful and fairly secluded. The covered patio area is amazing and we loved sitting around the outdoor fireplace in the evenings. Communication with RV as a host was frustrating. The booking required full payment up front with no refund period, then I had to fill out additional (extensive) paperwork on the RV site within 24 hours or lose my booking. They later emailed me to say the hot tub was fixed - great news, but I wasn't ever told it was broken, and that was a must-have for our group. I received 10 emails from RV about the stay, 3 of which were ads. Each time RV sent an email, they also sent an Airbnb message that just said "You have a new email", for an additional 7 emails. Instructions for check out were sent via email and not Airbnb. Everyone who came loved the house, but I didn't love the RV experience compared to a normal Airbnb.

We appreciate you taking the time out to leave us with your thoughts Kevin! We apologize for the experience that you had concerning our communication, and we would like to say that communication is a top priority of ours. Otherwise we are pleased to hear that the home was a great fit and you and your group had a lovely time! Please come see us again soon! Madison, Railey Vacations

Love this house. The aesthetic of the house is to die for. A few items I recommend: bring extra towels, toliet paper, pillows, and blankets. This house is centrally located and was in a great location to get everywhere. We got to see a bear a couple times roaming around too.

Thanks for the kind words Cody! Great to hear that you enjoyed the location and got to experience the wildlife here at Deep Creek! Please come see us again soon! Madison, Railey Vacations

Lot of activities to do for small children and adults. Close to beach, zip lining, fun zone, boating, grocery stores, and shopping. Can’t wait to return next year! This home was amazing and so clean! Clean and well stocked kitchen!! Cooked numerous types of meals and never had to worry a utensil or pot was missing. Layout was organized and well thought out for multiple groups to do different things at the same time. Bedrooms had blinds and comfortable beds. Bathrooms were clean. Hot tub was clean and functional. We grilled out and ate on the inviting roof covered deck many evenings. Minutes from the lake with a beautiful Mountain View. Would highly recommend!

My family and I enjoyed ourselves for the four days we were here. The open window concept was beautiful, loved the tint on the windows at night. The house was just as pictured and felt like a home away from home. Very close to some nice restaurants, Wal-Mart wasn't too far away either. I would recommend staying at Afterglow!

Beautiful place in a great location, just minutes from the lake. Place is brand new and feels like a luxury hotel. Very large with lots of space to sprawl out yet very cozy. Owners did a great job decorating the place; the decor was very thoughtfully put together. Had a great time hanging out in the hot tub while the snow was falling. Looking forward to going back soon and staying there in summer.

Glad to hear it, Gerben! The owners will be thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Afterglow and that the home exceeded your expectations. Give us a call when you are ready to book your next vacation. We would love to host you again! Jenny, Railey Vacations
