  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.

Family vacation was enjoyed by all

Reviewed on 2022-07-11 by Amy

We had a great week at the lake. Enjoyed the time together. The house was big enough to be together and apart as needed. Really enjoyed the lake very clean. Cold at first but easy to get used to. Had to call maintenance for a couple of things ie. internet, water on carpet, and dryer. All but dryer were immediately resolved.

Hi Amy! Glad to hear that you and your family had a wonderful vacation with us here at DCL! We are pleased that you were satisfied with Better Days and it’s spacious layout, along with the beauty of the lake! Thank you for taking the time out to leave us a review and we are grateful that we were able to quickly remedy any issues you may have had!

Beautiful Home, Lovely Stay; Some Improvements Needed

Reviewed on 2021-09-16 by Rebecca

This home really is beautiful, very clean, spacious and overall provided us with a wonderful weekend with friends. The dock was ideal for sunbathing, floating on rafts, and making memories. The website says firewood not provided but actually there was a lot of wood near firepit, perhaps left by previous guests. Cozy couches and a HUGE deck that everyone enjoyed. Small but meaning improvements could be made here to make this a truly 5-star experience. There is no keurig (description mentions k-cups but it's a nespresso); the stove and dishwasher need updated/repaired. Trash bags, ample dish soap/hand soap, back ups of toilet paper/paper towel, & cooking spices (more than S&P) not provided in this home. Perhaps this is usual, but not in my experience renting homes/cabins.

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at Better Days, Rebecca, and we appreciate your feedback about how we can ensure that your next visit is even better than the last. The detailing of the coffee machine as a Keurig was our mistake and has since been corrected on our website - thanks for pointing this out! As the stove was just replaced, we're surprised to hear that you experienced some trouble with it. We'll have our maintenance team take a look right away to ensure everything is working properly with both the stove and the dishwasher. To ensure the safety of our guests and the cleanliness of the rental, we do not provide any food items, toiletries and/or cleaning supplies, or paper products for our guests. Upon booking, you should have received a detailed list of the items you can expect to be provided for you and those we encourage you to bring along for your stay. If you ever have questions on this, please don't hesitate to reach out via phone or email. Thank you again for taking the time to share your thoughts, and we are looking forward to the opportunity of hosting you again in the future! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Thanks for the review Nancy, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay!

Lots of clean up needed on this house

The house has a decent layout, a fabulous deck and is located on a beautiful lot. However, The kitchen is very small for a 6 bedroom house. There is black mold growing in the downstairs closet, the hot tub water was green and smelled horrible. The dishwasher bottom rack is broken. Although the master bath has the largest tub that I have ever seen, there wasn't enough water pressure to fill it within a reasonable period of time.The grill was disgustingly dirty.

Hi Laura, Thank you for the feedback and we sincerely apologize you had this experience. We'd like to update you that this home was purchased by new homeowners in December 2020. Since that time, the home has undergone extensive remodeling and refurbishing. Some of those updates include painting of every interior and exterior surface, replacement of virtually all carpeting on the main level with plank wood flooring, professional cleaning of all remaining carpet downstairs, new furniture throughout most of the house, and cleanup of all outside areas. This home also no longer allows for pets and the hot tub is sparkling clean and working perfectly. We hope you'll consider coming back to visit again so you can check out all the great changes that have happened here! Thank you, Jenn - Railey Vacations

The house is quite nice and the property is beautiful, but the house could definitely use some improvement. The outside is horribly dirty and the stained carpets are a real turn-off. I realize it’s pet-friendly, but the carpet should really be addressed.

Beautiful home, comfy, and roomy. We had 7 adults and 9 children (ages 4 to 15) and it worked out great! Really nice lay out. The deck is amazing, and even with the trees, we still had a nice view of the lake. The hot tub and the fire pit were a HUGE hit! The dock was so much fun, the fish were biting like crazy which made all the fishermen in the group happy! The kids all enjoyed jumping off the dock. The large screened in porch was really nice so when it rained we sat around the table playing cards. Excellent vacation and a good time was had by all. I highly recommend this home. It made our favorite list and we will definitely be renting this home again.

So happy to hear it, Susan! We're glad to hear you and your family had a great time and look forward to hosting you again soon. - Jenn, Railey Vacations

Beautiful view and clean house. Would definitely work great for a smaller group, but definitely not for a large group of 15 adults. The dishwasher rack was broken and there were only 14 forks for 15 people. Two bedrooms did not have televisions and that was very disappointing to the two couples.

Creatures comfort weekend getaway 2019

Reviewed on 2019-01-24 by Amanda

We stayed at creatures comfort January 2019. We had a group of twelve adults and the house was more than accommodating for our sized group. The house is beautiful, spacious and for the most part very well maintained. We had a few small blemishes upon arrival, the carpet had a handful of stains ( which in my opinion is to be expected with a rental property) one of the light fixtures in the kitchen ceiling was falling down and a pantry door was off the track and missing the hardware for us to put it back on the track. There was one diggin shovel and half a shaker of salt for the snow. We were able to request two more snow shovels and salt from the rental office and they provided them in a timely manner. The beds were very comfortable and our entire party agreed that they slept well during our stay. The kitchen is stocked with everything we needed to spend the weekend cooking and mixing frozen drinks! The hot tub was well maintained and large enough to fit 6 adults comfortably. The tub in the master bedroom is huge but takes forever to fill up and the water temperature doesn’t stay hot so unfortunately we weren’t able to utilize it. Within our first night we all agreed we want to come back to this house in the summer and explore all that deep creek lake has to offer in the warmer months ! Our only issue the entire weekend was getting out of the driveway. The slope is steep and not recommended for vehicles without 4 wheel drive in the winter time. I would definitely recommend this house if your looking for a couples retreat !

Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review, Amanda! We're happy to hear you and your group had a great time, despite a couple of setbacks. We look forward to your return during warmer months and will be sure to take a look into the things you mentioned for improvements! - Jenn, Railey Vacations

We were a group of 8 adults, on a long weekend getaway, and Creature Comforts was just the ticket! Plenty of rooms, hang-out areas, a great deck, amazing dock and lakefront area, fire pit, and hot tub. The barbecue is not gas, so be sure to bring charcoal. Master suite is amazing... including HUGE ensuite bathroom with HUGE Jacuzzi tub. Highly recommend... love that it was pet friendly, and would definitely rent again!
