  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.

Almost Aspen is Almost Awesome

Hi there, Debbie! I'm so sorry to hear that the hot tub was not working properly during your stay, especially as you mentioned this is the second year you've experienced this disruption. In the last year, we've not received any complaints regarding the hot tub at Almost Aspen nor has any service beyond basic maintenance been required for this hot tub. I do not see any maintenance requests submitted under your reservation and we sincerely regret that we were unable to address this concern prior to your departure. We understand how disappointing inoperable amenities are, particularly guest-favorites such as the hot tub, and we'll have our team take a look at the hot tub to ensure everything is in order for future guests. In the future, please know that you can always give us a call should you experience any issues at your rental and we'll send a team member to assist. With this in mind, I'm so glad to see that you enjoyed your stay in Deep Creek overall, and we are looking forward to hosting you again in the future. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Update: New Hot tub on site and installed. Homeowner, Railey Vacations

What a lovely and spacious house! The layout was perfect for our theee families, with kids ranging from 6 months to 12 years. The giant kitchen table accommodated everyone, with room still for a puzzle and a high chair. We hadn’t realized beforehand how helpful it would be to have both multiple fridges and multiple dishwashers! On the fun front, it was just so fun to be able to wander down to jump in the water multiple times a day. This was a perfect setting for us and we would love to stay there again.

We had a family reunion with our children and grandchildren. For the most part Almost Aspen was great. However, there is an open drain in the laundry room which really concerned us - who knows what is growing in there. Another concern was that when we arrived there were 4 windows open and a sliding door unlocked. It didn't look like anything was missing so we didn't call the office. But we would all go back, we had a really fun time.

Thank you for letting us know, Mary. We'll take a look at the drain in the laundry room and if something like the window/door situation should ever happen again (it shouldn't, this is very out of the norm), please give us a call. More than likely the windows were left open during the cleaning/inspection process to allow in some fresh air, but we would certainly always want to be made aware of the situation so that if nothing else, we can ensure this doesn't happen again. We're glad you otherwise enjoyed your vacation and hope to host you again soon! - Jenn, Railey Vacations

House is beautiful. all furnishings and amenities in great shape and very comfortable. Suggestion to improve the WiFi, it is horrible! Not sure what the owner pays for but the connectivity was spotty and very slow. Other homes we have rented that were not nearly as nice had much better Wifi, improving this feature would make this place top notch all the way.

Thank you for the feedback, Debbie! So sorry about the WIFI, we're going to take a look at that with the homeowner to see how we can improve. If you're ever in a rental home experiencing weak signal again, please call and let us know - we'll have our IT department come out to take a look!

Beautiful home and the space was perfect for the 14 of us. Could have fit plenty more people given they had a pull out upstairs, extra beds in several rooms, and two other cots we found in the closets. The views only added to this house. The only downfall was that we were so close to the other homes with little privacy when on the back porch or in the back yard. People actually used our backyard to get their backyard. So on both nights of our trip we had people walking through our yard while we were outside to get back to their houses. That is why I only gave 4 stars.

Thanks so much for the review, Desiree. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and apologize that some of the neighboring rentals used your backyard to access their areas - it can happen from time-to-time depending on the renters in the homes and their knowledge of what space is theirs vs. neighboring properties. But if it ever becomes a problem on future stays, you can certainly give us a call and we'd be happy to try and address it for you. We hope to see you again soon! - Jenn, Railey Vacations

Loved the view!

Almost Aspen was a beautiful home with plenty of square footage inside and lovely deck/patio space outside for our family of 12! Great memories!

Happy to hear it, Linda! Thank you for the review, please come back and see us again soon! - Jenn, Railey Vacations
