You are here

  1. Split Lake Front
    Any property that borders on the buffer strip, but there is a road between the house and the water. The property owner owns the land on the other side of the road, but you must cross the road to access the water for swimming or use of the dock (if applicable). Split Lake Front does not necessarily mean you have a view of the water, since much of our shoreline is wooded.
  2. Lake Access
    Any property that has a specific, dedicated place to access the water for swimming or a boat dock (if applicable). The property owner does not own the access area. You may be able to walk to the water or you may need to drive to the area, depending on the particular property. Most Lake Access areas are designated by the community or HOA.

DESCRIPTION:
Just off Deep Creek Drive, Firefly Cove puts you steps from the shores of Deep Creek Lake, minutes from fantastic restaurants and shops, and in the perfect location to enjoy every second of your getaway! Start your day by sipping coffee on the deck while the sun rises over the water, then head to the dock for hours of swimming and boating. Bring your resident grill master along to cook up mouthwatering meals on the gas grill or swing by Black Bear Tavern for awesome burgers, steaks, seafood, and more! For even more fun, take a short drive to Deep Creek Fun Zone or Monkey Business Aerial Adventure Park for go-karts, arcade games, laser tag, mini-golf, and ropes courses. When the sun goes down, stay warm with a dip in the hot tub or s’mores at the fire pit. Winter visitors and indoor dwellers need not worry - inside, 3 fireplaces, 4 flat screen tvs, and a foosball table are sure to keep spirits high.

The home is lovely, very clean, and comfortable. This was the second time we rented Firefly Cove, and we are planning to do so again in May to celebrate our 49th anniversary. The location is private but close to everything. Some restaurants and shops are within walking distance. Railey Realty makes staying there trouble free! Even our dog loves it!

Thank you so much for taking the time out to leave us such a kind review Debra! It's great to hear that the location was perfect and that we were able to help you with anything you may have needed! We look forward to seeing you again soon for your anniversary! Madison, Railey Vacations

Cozy Firefly Cove

We simply loved our stay at Firefly Cove. A beautiful Autumn weekend with our family and two dogs. The location was close to grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops and more. The layout of the home was roomy and enough seating for the 8 of us to be in the living area together and at the table for meals and games. Nice area outside to walk our dogs too. Everything in working order. Towels and linens were clean and above average.We will be back for another stay at Firefly Cove next fall for sure. One thing to place to our Wish List would be a Keurig with a larger water reservoir to accommodate more than one brewing cycle. I feel as if we had some issues with it, although it did work....it may have possibly leaked ? We had a difficult time figuring out how much water we could put in it. Even a coffee maker with a 12 cup ground coffee carafe would be great. Bottomline, Firefly Cove was terrific and we would not hesitate in renting it again. Thank- you for making such a great home available to rent.

Hi Sue! We appreciate you taking the time out to leave us with your feedback and we will be sure to let the owner know about the coffee pot to ensure it is working for future rentals. Otherwise we are so happy to hear that you and your family had an amazing time with us. It's great that the home, location, and amenities all came together to create lasting memories. We look forward to seeing you again in the future! Madison, Railey Vacations

Hello! We wanted to reach out on behalf of the homeowners and let you know that the they have placed an upgraded version of the Keurig Duo in the home. Thank you so much! Madison, Railey Vacations 1/12/24

Firefly Cove was PERFECT for our group of 3 families with 6 children total. The bunk bed room was spacious and accommodated the 6 kids perfectly. They loved having their own room. The other bedroom and bathrooms were absolutely amazing, as well. The lake access/dock was the icing on the cake. We had tubes for the kids to float on and even though it was cold in the lake, they had a blast. The kitchen was well stocked, and the grill was perfect for our steak dinner! This home is convenient to literally everything in the Deep Creek area and parking for our 3 cars was super easy. The hot tub was clean and refreshing and the fire pit with chairs was perfect during the evening. Great home, we will definitely be back!

Wow, thank you for the 5 star review Meghan! The Railey's staff and homeowners strive to provide the best rental experience possible and we love to hear when we've succeeded. It's great to hear that the home, location, and amenities all came together for the ultimate vacation. We look forward to seeing you again soon! Madison, Railey Vacations

Fantastic home. It exceeded our expectations....many smiles from our picky daughter to boot! From the pictures, we thought it would be nice, but upon opening the door we were very impressed. Beautifully decorated (loved the wood ceiling, and furnishings), and very comfortable and homey. Only small criticism was the proximity to the major roads and loud teenager cars every so often, but on the plus side it was very close to shopping, restaurants, etc. I may not have used it right, but I don't believe the gas grill had any propane in the bottle, but that was a minor inconvenience. Some things we really loved were the many board games (nice touch), fooz ball (haven't played in years and brought back great memories), car charger (saved me a bunch of gas), and the basket of fleece blankets to keep warm and cozy. All in all, really LOVED this house. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for the wonderful review, Gary! Truly appreciate you taking the time to detail your feedback and memories with us. Occasionally the propane for the gas grills may run out while you're visiting one of our homes and when that happens, please feel free to give us a call; we'll be happy to stop out with a refill! Happy to hear you otherwise had a great time and we look forward to having you back again in the near future! - Jenn, Railey Vacations
