Some good and some BAD.

Reviewed on 2022-02-20 by Bonnie

Beautiful views and and very well stocked kitchen. Everything you could possibly need for a large group. Now for the bad, the water pressure in this place was awful. If someone was in the shower no one else could even get a drink of water without the pressure being reduced to zero. This made for a difficult time for our large group. Showers had to be scheduled and other water use monitored. I have never experienced this even in a mountain home. Several bedroom TVs did not work. Hot tub was broken but I was notified several days before arriving, was still disappointing. I would use Railey again but this home is off my list.

Hi, Bonnie! I’m so sorry to learn of the disruptions that arose during your stay. I’ve shared your comments with our team to ensure your concerns are addressed as soon as possible. We are so glad to know that these hiccups did not prevent you from having a good time at Best Kept Secret overall and hope that the refund we were able to offer was some consolation. We look forward to remedying any lingering disappointment with a fantastic DCL getaway next time around. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

This house was everything we were looking for - plenty of space, a working hot tub, and isolated so we didn't have to worry about disturbing our neighbors. The driveway was well maintained so everyone was able to leave safely on Sunday despite the winter weather. There were a few things wrong with the house. The pool table was clearly very old and not useable because of holes in the top. We always stay at homes with pool tables, so this was extremely disappointing. The downstairs bedroom with bunk beds was practically uninhabitable due to loud metal clanking sounds you can hear from the water pressure changes whenever someone took a shower or used the water. The people who stayed in that room didn't sleep a wink The doors to all of the rooms have cracks, so you can hear everything happening everywhere in the house like it's right next to you. Do not stay here if you are with a group that makes any noise in the mornings or evenings - you will not sleep. The trash can drawer is falling apart, but that was a minor issue. Maintenance came out within an hour or two of us calling about a few other minor problems (windows mechanisms were broken and wouldn't open/close) which was appreciated. However, the major problems couldn't be taken care of. The beds in the rooms were also different from room to room, so try them out and choose your room wisely. The bed in our upstairs king suite was hard as a rock, but some people in our group said their beds were soft. The temperature control had much to be desired in the bedrooms. Some rooms were hot, while others were cold. Even with everything that went wrong, this house was better than others that we've stayed at in years past.

Thanks for your feedback, Sara! I’m sorry to hear that a few aspects of your stay at Best Kept Secret didn’t meet expectations, and I’ve shared your comments with our maintenance team and the homeowner to ensure your concerns are addressed as soon as possible. With that said, I’m so glad to know that these disruptions did not prevent you from having a good time in Deep Creek overall. We sincerely hope for the opportunity to host you again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

The cabin was a great house but confused as to why we have to bring our own toilet paper, soap, and other basic necessities. They did tell us to bring these things in advance though!
Reviewed on Airbnb

Hi Ashley, apologies for the confusion. We provide the welcome bag with starter toilet paper and paper towels but you're correct, we do not provide soaps, paper products, and other necessities for our guests that would typically last the entire duration of a stay. This decision is due to the fact that we'd need to replenish items between each rental for safety/hygiene and past history has shown that products we did provide were nowhere near entirely used by their stay's end - so there was a lot of 'waste'. We felt it a better decision to allow guests to bring their own toiletries and paper products, which they could then take home and continue using to help cut down on unnecessary waste. Hope this helps better explain our decision. Appreciate the review and sounds like you otherwise had a great stay - please come back and see us again soon! - Jenn, Railey Vacations<br />

The accommodations were wonderful. The Best Kept Secret had 6 bedrooms, two living spaces, a large dining area and kitchen, and a beautiful view of the lake as the icing on the cake. checking in and checking out were both easy, but just slightly inconvenient because the keys had to be picked up and dropped off at the office. We would highly recommend the house.

This was a great house! Very clean and spacious. We loved having a separate area downstairs for the kids, and with a door that closed to keep the noise at a minimum. We experienced some maintenance issues but Railey responded quickly when we called. There was also no horseshoe pit that was advertised, as far as we could find. We would definitely stay here again.

I have stayed at a lot of homes in DCL but this one was my favorite. The layout was just perfect for our family trip. It was important to me to have a large enough space in the kitchen/dining/living room area for us all to eat and hang out together and this home delivered. The dining table is massive and there is a very long kitchen counter with stools along it for extra seating. The wrap around balconies are huge and have a gorgeous lake view. For the house itself, I loved that the kitchen was fully equipped. Everything pot,pan, utensil you could possibly want or need was there. The wifi had a strong signal and there were new flat screen tvs in every room with the ones in the living room and basement being smart tv's. In addition to the 6 bedrooms were 2 pullout sofa beds we were not expecting so that was nice to have. It is hard to tell from the pictures so just so people know, 2 of the bedrooms have king sized beds & the room in the basement with the bunk beds has a 3rd bed that pulls out from the bottom. I do not have any criticisms really. This place was wonderful. If I am being really nit picky the only things I would change or like to know before coming is there is no way to play music so bring a speaker. The unit in the basement is REALLY old and does not work at all. The fan in the basement makes an awful noise and should probably be repaired or replaced. And we were really confused on the whole basement fireplace, blower switch going on. None of these things were an issue for us though. Loved the home and would be happy to book again.

Wow! This is a wonderful review, Shermane. I am glad that your group found so many things to love about Best Kept Secret! We appreciate the critiques just as much as the praise, and will share your comments regarding the basement unit, fan, and fireplace with the owner for consideration during future updates. We sure hope you'll visit us again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations
