Everything you'd imagine when you think of a cottage in the woods. Very cute and homey and very clean. Needs updates tho, like new mattresses and a new dishwasher
We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay at Bunbury Cottage, Nikki, and we appreciate your feedback! Because bedding preferences vary so greatly, it can be difficult to find a solution that is perfect for every guest. That said, feedback is always appreciated and considered. We’ll share this suggestion as well as your suggestion of a new dishwasher with the homeowner for reference when making updates. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave your review! We hope to host you again. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Cabin Experience

Reviewed on 2021-11-28 by Celes

The cabin could use some updating but the worst issue was the water. We didn’t cook with it, want to shower, or even give it to my dog to drink. The smell of the water was absolutely awful so we ended up leaving Sunday night instead of Monday. The cleaning fee was almost as much as the 3 night stay which was shocking as well. I have stayed in cabins in multiple states and nothing is ever perfect; nor do we expect it to be. However, this one didn’t quite meet expectations.
Hi there, Celes! I’m so sorry to hear that your group experienced some discomfort regarding the water. While much of the water in Deep Creek is sourced from wells and therefore has a unique taste and smell, it is entirely safe to use and consume. That said, we will have our maintenance team ensure that the water filtration system is functioning properly at Bunbury Cottage. Thank you for alerting us to your concern! We understand that hesitancy regarding your rental’s water source is a major inconvenience and we sincerely hope for the opportunity to remedy any of your lingering disappointment from this experience with a fantastic DCL getaway in the future. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Cozy cabin with a couple issues

Stayed here over the weekend of 10/28-10/30. First and foremost we really like the cabin. It’s perfect size for a small family or a couples weekend. The decor is lake cabin appropriate and the kitchen has everything you need. I would definitely rent again. That said, the water issue hasn’t been exaggerated. You can’t drink it or cook with it. It smells and tastes like rust. Overwise it’s a great option for people who aren’t too fussy
I’m glad to hear that you had a good time at Bunbury Cottage overall, Keith! We appreciate you emphasizing your concerns regarding the water - we’re going to have our maintenance team take another look at the filtration system to see where there is room for improvement. We’ll also discuss actions with the homeowner, as high-quality water is non-negotiable in our eyes. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. We hope you’ll visit DCL again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Late July stay

It is a relaxing house. If the neighbors are quiet! The first half of our stay the people next door were the partying type and very loud, made it very hard to relax and sleep. Lots of kitchen supplies, the only thing I couldn't find was oven mitts of any type which made cooking a little difficult. The house itself is cozy and we liked the decor. The couch in the living room was perfect. Not all the lamps were working in the living room, the TV was pretty small and not so good. We didn't even try the bedroom TVs. The beds were not very comfortable. The shower upstairs is a very tight squeeze. The water in general was not good. I have experience with well water but I've never seen anything like this. Or tasted anything like that. We literally smelled like rust after showering or washing your hands. We didn't even try the hot tub the water was just so unpleasant. My scared dog did ok with walking along the shoulder of the road most days and once we found the little walkway to the lake that was a nice length walk for him. In summary, the house is cute and cozy, could use some TLC touch ups for sure (the upstairs floor was looking a little iffy) and the water is something else...definitely bring lots of bottled water along. Anything we reached out to the Railey representatives for they were quick to respond and help with whatever they could help with, which was very nice.
Thanks for your feedback, Elizabeth! I’m sorry to hear that a few aspects of your stay didn’t meet your expectations and appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts. Please know that we are always here to lend a hand with any disruptions that pop up, including noisy neighbors. In the future, don’t hesitate to give us a call and we will do our best to resolve the problem promptly for you. We’ve shared your comments regarding the kitchenware, TVs, bedding, and upstairs flooring with the homeowner for reference when updating Bunbury Cottage. Thanks for your input! We’ll also have our maintenance team take a look at the lamps to be sure these are working properly for our future guests. While the well water does have a unique taste and smell, it is safe to use and consume. That said, we’ll have our team check this out, too, to be sure everything is in order. I’m glad to know that you had a good time at Bunbury Cottage overall and that your pup acclimated well! We hope to host you again in the future. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Everything was clean and comfortable. If you've never been exposed to well water, it is different. Because of my cancer, I could not enjoy, but the rest of my family did.

The house is nice and furnished with taste, problem - not strong water pressure. Water is not of a drinking quality (probably true for the whole lake area) so it is better to buy clean water for cooking and drinking. A cute house but a little bit dark.
Hi, Yevgeniya! Thanks so much for your review - we're glad you had a great time overall. We'll take a look to see if there is any room for improvement regarding the water pressure. Given the area, most of the water is sourced from a well. While it is safe to drink, we do understand that some of our guests prefer to buy bottled water or use an alternate water source. However you prefer to enjoy your vacation is perfect for us! Thanks again for your feedback, and we hope you'll visit again soon. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

We have been to Deep Creek Lake many times in the past couple of years and this weekend was one of the best ever. We had a fast, friendly check in with treats awaiting our pup when we arrived. Bunbury Cottage was perfect for cozy evenings by the fire even though it rained quite a bit the first day and a half. The kitchen had everything we needed, it was well-stocked and incredible clean, the hot tub on the deck was great were checking out the stars and we felt completely at home. An awesome fall weekend at Bunbury Cottage!
