  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.
  2. Golf Area
    Refers to a selection of our properties which are the most conveniently located within or near a golfing community. Some homes under Lake Front, Lake Access, or Lake Area categories may also be considered a Golf Area property.

Gorgeous home and back yard! We even made use of the fire pit and brought our own wood. Hot tubs are always a hit. We appreciate the goody bag as well! The indoor pool was great too and the speakers for music was awesome! I loved how you can control what rooms the music plays in. The fireplace inside is decorative only. There seemed to be a bit of a shortage with the hot water though.

Thanks for the kind words, Lettie! We are happy to hear that the home was all you had expected and the amenities were well-equipped. We hope to have the chance to rent to you again soon! Madison, Railey Vacations

We had a wonderful vacation at this home in December! Everything was functioning! Had a great time in the pool, great time in the hot tub! It seem to be very roomy, and set up very nicely for us all to enjoy each other, and have our own little space to go to when we wanted to. Great kitchen to cooking also!

Great house. Does have some minor issues, new carpet needed, new outlets, doors stick. Pool was great, location on the water was great. Very roomy. Nice washer/dryer and clean home. Garbage bin was big to hold our garbage for the week. We had issues with wasps but Railey was quick to respond on July 4th. Would recommend and would rent again.

We appreciate your feedback Christine! We will be sure to pass along your suggestions to the homeowners for future improvements but otherwise pleased to hear that you and your family had a wonderful time together! Looking forward to seeing you again soon! Madison, Railey Vacations

Beautiful house with an amazing lakefront location

Reviewed on 2023-01-09 by Doreen , Gambrills, MD United States

Overall our family (11) had a wonderful stay at The Castle on the Lake over the New Year’s weekend. The house is large, beautiful and well equipped. We enjoyed the beautiful lakefront location and all the amenities, particularly its close proximity (less than 10 miles) to Wisp Resort. We would definitely rent the house again. The following are a few comments:1. There is limited privacy in street level suite. The owner should install window covering or stencil on the glass doors.2. The hot water is scalding and could potentially burn the skin. The owner would save money by lowering the hot water temperature. I would be hesitant to have little ones in the house until this is changed.3. I would have appreciated a text “heads up” that the pool or other maintenance services would be accessing the property after we checked in. I don’t believe the doorbell works.4. Hangers would have been convenient. Most people do not travel with hangers, even though we brought a lot of other stuff as required or suggested.5. Perhaps, consider offering additional towels and wash cloths. One per person was not enough. Also, there were sheets for the futons upstairs, but no blankets or towels/wash cloths.6. We appreciated the paper products available, they were a good supplement to our own.7. Although we were provided one, there’s not really a pool code to enter the pool unless you trigger the alarm. Access appears to be obtained by pressing the red button and closing the door within a specific timeframe. The posted code is only used to deactivate the alarm.8. Suggest checking the oven temperature. It seemed cooler than the selected temperature. It might need to be recalibrated. 9. Oven mitts should be replaced or washed. They were really filthy.10. We were able to download the app and stream music through the house system, but it was very spotty. It was constantly cutting off and on. It wasn’t usable or enjoyable as a result. The Railey staff and property management were very responsive before and after our arrival. They provided assurances that some of the previously reported issues with the house were resolved and to our delight, they were: beds were comfortable, new furniture was added to existing and no mildew smells during our stay. Thanks so much for your customer service.

Hi Doreen,
Thanks so much for the great review! We really appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback, and we look forward to the opportunity to host you again in the future! We will share your suggestions and concerns with the owner and the property manager and will take these suggestions into consideration. Again, we certainly hope to see you again in the future. - Jenny K

Home is absolutely beautiful! We had our family 2022 New Years here and we will be back next year. Had a few small issues that were resolved immediately thanks to the fast staff response. Most people shy away from the expensive places but you get what you pay for and this home is worth the price. If you are looking for one of the top homes in Deep Creek this property is definitely at the Top! See you next year

Thank you for this awesome review, Chad! We are so glad your group had a great time at Castle at the Lake and we can’t wait to host you again next year. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

This property could be so much, but it is rundown and need cosmetic/structural help. House smells wet and mildewed. Furniture is broken, stained, moldy and smells. The dust in this place shows it is not cleaned often. Windows and door blinds are broken to the point they should be removed. Toilets run constantly and had broken handles…after further inspection, they need replacing in several rooms (thank goodness Railey’s team was able to get the flushing going again for the short term). Trim around borders are being held up with nails which are protruding. Broken door near game room. Flatware needs replacing, not complete setting; so many missing pieces. Cable goes in and out. Some rooms didn’t work period. Fire pit needs work. Signature properties should stand out like 5-star hotels. This property ranks a 3-star.

Hi, Darlene - I’m so sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at Castle at the Lake and appreciate you taking the time to share your concerns. Though some of these issues are currently in the process of being addressed (e.g. damaged blinds in some areas of the home), we’ve not previously heard mention of many concerns you’ve listed, and we will have our teams visit the home to ensure these issues are resolved as soon as possible. We’ve also alerted the homeowner to your comments for review when making updates. While I’m glad to hear that our team was able to repair the toilets promptly, we do regret that you were left with many additional concerns. Your feedback will help us to ensure the comfort of our future guests, and likewise, we sincerely hope for the opportunity to remedy your disappointment with a fantastic DCL getaway in the future. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, and we wish you the best as we enter the new year. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

This is a beautiful home that I've rented before. Great view of the lake. Good location. Sad to say I probably won't rent again based on pets not being allowed. My dog goes everywhere I do.

We're so glad you had another great getaway at Castle at the Lake, Alicia! That said, we entirely understand needing to bring every member of your family along for vacation. Our wonderful reservationists would be happy to help you find a rental that meets all of your needs and allows you to bring your pup. When you're ready to plan your next visit to Deep Creek, please don't hesitate to reach out. We hope to host you again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Amazing Vacation Home

Reviewed on 2021-04-11 by Cynthia

Our family vacationed at the Castle at the Lake. What a beautiful home. First I must say after reading the many negative reviews prior to us arriving I was very nervous. I emailed them with questions prior to our arrival and they would quickly respond. Thank Jenny Kahler for always responding and providing the great information that we needed. She is so helpful and I want to personally thank her for her assistance. Our arrival was as expected. No problems and the house is exactly what is pictured. Rooms are huge. The pool was a great addition and we all enjoyed it, along with the hot tub. Positives - House is huge Kitchen had everything that we needed Heated floors throughout the downstairs was awesome The surround sound throughout the house was great. We were able to hook up to it and play music throughout the entire house to include outside. Amazing. House was very clean Customer service was fantastic. We had to call about the TVs and lights and they came quickly. I think it was Brittney who always answered the phone as we also had to call back as the temperature rose and we had to use the AC which was not working. I did make a couple of calls but she was always so gracious and it was fixed the next day. The indoor pool very nice Local towns were not too far. Suggestions/Negatives The bed in the room downstairs needs new mattresses. It was sort of sunken in the middle and should be replaced. The blinds are broken and should also be replaced They did leave 2 small rolls of toilet paper but with that big of a house you should expect for many people to come so that definitely would not be enough. Thank God that Jenny suggested things for us to bring but these things should be included as this house is not cheap. The miniature amenities were not enough. No soap was provided and should have been especially during this pandemic, but we had our own. Not much else that I can say or suggest. The house was truly amazing and well maintained. Our family truly enjoyed. If you need a huge house with an added bonus of the pool inside I would book this house. Would I book again? I probably would not because the town had absolutely nothing open for activities during our time there, which we were surprised as it was Spring Break. This is not a big tourist area so there is not much to do if that is what you are looking for. We were looking for a great house for our family to get together and we were able to bring dogs which was another bonus so it was perfect for us. Castle by the Lake is amazing and we saw other homes in the area which looked amazing as well.

Thank you for taking the time out to share your experience with us. We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Castle at the Lake, and can't wait to have you back soon. ~Deborah Fike, Railey Vacations

The lake was frozen and the kids were able to ice fish and play ice hockey. Perfect winter home for entertaining teenage kids and toddlers.

Beautiful house in great location. The bedrooms were huge with their own bathrooms. Some of the bathroom showers need maintenance. All the kitchen appliances worked well. We had 2 children there and they loved all the room downstairs to roam in and there was plenty of outside lawn for them to run in. The pool and hot tub were very clean. There was nowhere to hang wet towels in the bathrooms or pool.

The picture and positive reviews of this house did not disappoint. Great location and enough space for all that went. Offered things to do both inside with the indoor pool and outside with the hot tub, fire pit and lake access. There were a few minor items that did not work perfectly, but as expected, with a rental property that has as many visitors as this property likely does in a year there were none that would keep us from returning to this property in the future. Travel to the food store, etc. was a bit further than expected but again all positives clearly outweigh this or anything else.

Hi, Randy - thanks so much for your review! We're glad you enjoyed your stay at Castle at the Lake and want to make sure our future guests do, too. We'll take a look at your survey responses for more information on the amenities that weren't functioning properly during your stay so that we can repair or replace them ASAP.

This house was truly awe inspiring! This house was ground zero for a fun filled wedding weekend and our guests could not have had more fun. Seeing my cousins and friends swimming in the lake, playing football on the lawn, or laying in the sun the day after our wedding was awesome. The kitchen and living area made entertaining a breeze and we all had comfortable and luxurious accommodations for the night. There's a wine cooler! A second freezer. So many great perks! And the game room will make your jaw drop - it's huge! Great for a family reunion or get away!

As a resident of the area, I am usually working and don't get to experience the fun that Deep Creek Lake has to offer. Deep Creek Lodging and the Castle on the Lake opened my eyes to how much fun it is to vacation here at Deep Creek Lake. I urge all others to take some time to do this for themselves. It's a rare opportunity to live in a place where you do not need to leave to go on vacation.

What a fun opportunity, Derrick! We're so glad you were finally able to enjoy Deep Creek to the fullest. We hope you'll enjoy another staycation soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

The location was great. I wish we had more control of the heat it, it was cold most of the time, some shower heads need replacing, our oven went out twice and the fuse box had to be reset by a property manager and a few more kitchen items could be added (pots baking dishes etc). These minor things will not stop a good time and I still would recommend this property.

Thanks for your review, Charlie! I'm sorry to hear that a few inconveniences arose during your stay and will be sure to share your comments with the homeowner and our maintenance team to get these issues resolved ASAP.

We came during the offseason and midweek, so it was very affordable. The house was clean and in great shape. The beds were comfortable and kitchen had everything we needed.
