This was our second time renting this house. We really enjoyed our walks throughout the beautiful neighborhood and the hours spent in and around the pool looking out of the many windows. We also enjoyed sitting on both decks.

Hi, Angela. First, thank you for being a return client. The best advertisement we could ask for is people like you who return to stay with us again. It's great to hear that Exceeding Expectations has indeed consistently exceeded your expectations, providing a beautiful and peaceful vacation. Of course, when you are ready for another vacation at Deep Creek Lake, we would love to host you. -Susan, Railey Vacations

This lovely home served as a home away from home during our stay. The accommodations were exceptional and a couple of guests mentioned they slept better than they did at home. There was plenty of room to space out and for anyone needing time apart from the group they could do so with ease.

Hi, Brenda. Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It sounds like Exceeding Expectations lives up to it's name! We are so happy to hear your group felt at home during your stay, and that the home's layout worked well, providing a nice balance between shared and private space. It's also awesome that everyone slept well. When you are ready for your next DCL adventure, we would love to host you again.

This was a great way to spend a week. Some in our group ventured out but half of us never left! Private, comfortable pool, tons of space on the decks… we usually watch a bunch of TV but we never turned one on here. Laurie did great with our requests, quite a mind for customer service. Though I never liked interacting with the Railey, I will say that when a smoke detector 25’ up a ceiling started chirping at midnight one night, there was someone there pretty quick with a big ladder to solve the problem. I would be happy to return, but may try check out Laurie’s other property instead! (Reviewed on VRBO)

We’re so glad to hear that you had a wonderful time at Exceeding Expectations, Michael! You know it’s a great vacation when you opt out of TV time.

This is a great home for families with young kids. There is plenty of space for them to play without disturbing adults who might like a little quiet time. The pool area was their favorite (though adults found its air to be too hot / humid; a few more screens might fix that. Overall, a great house and location.

This house has space for 15 to spread out. The covered pool is a plus for the children in any weather. The house is a little tired looking and needs some TLC., and some repairs, but it works well for a large group, and our family enjoyed their vacation. Could have used some instructions for the house, but we figured everything out.

We’re sorry to hear that this home did not meet your expectations, Faye. We hope the earlier check-in and complimentary bottles of wine upon arrival helped to brighten your stay a little, despite the dissatisfaction you noted upon check-out with the unlevel yard, placement of the fire pit, and smaller trash cans.

It was a great experience. Kids never had a dull moment. Spacious house with entertainment area on one floor, good size indoor pool with jacuzzi on the side another. Each bedroom with it's own bathroom/shower. Outdoor space for barbeque and campfire as well. Very nice attentive owner, with promptly responsive rental company as well. Left with great memories! Thanks (Review from TripAdvisor)

We're so glad that the entire family enjoyed, Motti! Come back and make more memories soon. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Exceeding Expectations was a gorgeous home with all the amenities that a large family could ask for. It was a perfect location for all ages, with multiple master bedrooms that added to privacy. The indoor pool was fantastic and enjoyed by all! The owner is the sweetest host and extremely prompt during the whole process, booking through check-out. Can’t wait to return!

We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed a wonderful visit, Emily! Please come back and relax again soon. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

The pool was great. The rooms are very large & there was plenty of space. People should know with the trees in full bloom there is no view of the lake.

Thanks for your review, Shirley! If you're interested in a house with a clearer view of the lake during the summer months, you can contact our vacation consultants and they will be happy to assist in your search for the perfect home-away-from-home. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay overall and hope to host you again soon. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

I rented this house for my sister’s bachelorette weekend. We had 20 girls and there was more than enough room! We never felt cramped or on top of each other. The beds were super comfy and linens and towels were provided which was very nice. We were all amazed by how big and and gorgeous the house was. The hot tub was a big hit along with the HEATED INDOOR POOL!!! Laurie was amazing to work with. Throughout the whole booking process she was very responsive in answering all my questions. Even during our stay, she texted and emailed to see how everything was going and if we needed anything. I would definitely recommend Exceeding Expectations to everyone!

We're so glad you had a great time, Shari! Give your sister our congratulations, and come visit again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations 

THE BEST birthday celebration

I have to say. This was THE BEST birthday celebration I've ever had at Deep Creek. My group, which is a large group, has gone to Deep Creek multiple times over the years, but no experience was as good as this one and it wasnt just the house that was amazing. Laurie, who owns the house, WAS PHENOMENAL from start to finish. Literally ANY problem I had trying to book the house, she either took care of it or contacted someone to make sure it was taken care of. She worked with me EVERY step of the way to make sure that I not only could secure the house but also get it for my birthday weekend. While we were there, I could count on her to answer my texts at any time. She made sure to provide me with any and all information I needed to enjoy my time. Even Railey vacations were professional and timely. I told Laurie that 5 stars was not enough and trust me, it's not. This was amazing and I'll always be checking with her first when looking to rent in Deep Creek. The house was amazing! The pool was clean, the gaming floor was fun. The house was clean as well. I felt very comfortable the entire time I was there. Definitely 10/10 would recommend. Fantastic time at Exceeding Expectations. And that's exactly what Laurie and the Railey Vacations team did. Exceed our expectations BY A LONG SHOT.

What a fantastic review, Antonio! Thank you so much. We are so honored to have hosted your birthday celebration and thrilled that you enjoyed it thoroughly. We hope you'll visit us again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

We have rented several houses before,in the Lake Erie area, and this was the best house, by far, to accommodate our family. Loved that each bedroom had its own en-suite bathroom. The bedrooms were large. Plenty of spaces to socialize and not feel cramped.

One word - Amazing! Let me first start by telling you about the owner and management company - the BEST you'll ever work with. We had a trip planned with 5 families that got canceled due to weather. We reached out to Laurie and she couldn't have been more sympathetic and understanding with our situation. She got in contact with the management company and kept us informed all along the way in order to make sure we got a reservation and were taken care of! Absolutely the best experience I have had before our vacation even started! Now the Property - WOW! Everything was great! The house was immaculate and was perfect for our group. Each room had its own private bathroom which made it great that no one had to share! The kitchen and dining area were huge and worked perfectly for our group. The indoor pool was OUTSTANDING! We had 10 kids running around, playing, swimming, and just having the time of their lives! It made it perfect for days when it was raining outside or when they just wanted to get up and go swimming. The amenities were an added bonus as well - included with the stay was a pass to the local rec. center where they kids enjoyed swimming and part of our group was able to get their fitness done in the gym. Our entire group wished we could have stayed longer because this was a fabulous experience and a wonderful vacation!

Wow! thank you so much for this excellent review, Matt! I'm thrilled to hear that your group had such a wonderful stay, and please know that we were more than happy to lend a hand. We hope you'll visit us again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations
