Lovely home but better suited to a fall or winter stay if you're looking for a lake view.
Thanks for your review, Julie! Our future guests will surely find your feedback helpful as they plan their getaways. We’re glad you enjoyed Great Expectations and hope you’ll visit Deep Creek again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Overall Great Expectations was an awesome house for a large family to stay in. plenty of rooms and amenities. Our only gripes were the beds need to be replaced, none of them were exceptionally comfortable and the one in the upstairs master bedroom creaked with every move you made on it. Also the hot tub needed to be cleaned twice before we could use it and the hot tub area should be cleaned more often as it has bird droppings all over the cover. The rest of the house was perfect, and we enjoyes every minute of our stay there!
Thanks for your review, Andrew - I'm sorry to hear that the beds didn't suit your group. We understand how important a comfortable bed is, especially on vacation! Because every person prefers a different type of mattress, it can be difficult to find a solution that is perfect for each guest. That being said, we will be sure to share your feedback with the homeowner for consideration during future updates. We will also share your comment regarding the location of the hot tub - while homeowners are sometimes limited in the number of locations suitable for hot tub placement, any and all feedback is appreciated. We extend our apologies that the hot tub was not fully prepared upon your arrival. While it is important to us that all amenities are available to guests as soon as they arrive, we also want to be sure that everything is properly cleaned for you. I'm so glad that these inconveniences did not prevent you from having a wonderful time at Great Expectations. Thanks again for your feedback, and we hope to host you again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Thank you so much for taking the time to communicate your concerns, Angela - your feedback helps us to identify and address issues promptly, ensuring quality for all of our guests. We'll be sure to take a look right away. I'm so glad to hear that you were able to enjoy a relaxing stay overall. Come back and relax again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

This cabin looks even better in person than it did in the pictures! It also comes stocked with everything you need in the kitchen, games, and books. There was tons of space for my group of 7 to either all be together, or spread out. The couches and beds were a mix of very comfortable to not comfortable. The mattress in the master suite definitely needs to be replaced, but the master suite itself is fantastic! The porches and hot tub area overlook the woods, and feel private. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this cabin!
Thank you for taking the time out to share your experience with us. We're so happy you enjoyed your stay at Great Expectations and can't wait to have you back soon. ~ Deborah Fike, Railey Vacations

Great house for a group! 5 bathrooms made it so that each room essentially had their own bathroom. Everything was very well kept and the location was great...right near the marina where we rented a boat.

I love coming to the lake. My group and I have been visiting for the last 5 years and plan to come for as long as we are able. It is looked forward to by our group. We get a different house every year and have always been satisfied to the utmost with our accommodations. We love the lake and the service of Railey.

The flooring on the main floor is beautiful but makes a lot of noise for those sleeping in the basement. Not sure that there is a fix for this. Great Expectations looks better then the pictures. It is a very nice house with plenty of rooms and areas to sit and relax. The decks are great and the screened in porch area is an added bonus for those that like to sit outside and read with out the bugs. The location of this home is very nice and quiet area of the lake.

As in Great Expectations!

We booked this house for the Holidays. Checked in on 12/25/18. To be honest the house is lovely. It was a bit smaller than what we imagined. The pictures make it look huge. But that did not take away from our experience. There were enough rooms and beds to fit everyone. The wood structures inside the house made it feel as if we were in a cabin for sure. The master suite was beautiful with a balcony which included a magnificent view. We used the Hot tub even with frigid temperatures and it was lovely, only thing is they need to put a light above it or near it. We had family members who fell on ice as they were exiting the hotel since they couldn't see. Luckily no one was hurt too bad.

The house was in good condition; everything worked quite well and was appropriately stocked. The only drawbacks we could find were that the fire-pit was in such poor condition that we did not use it during our stay. There was dirt, trash, and dead bugs/worms underneath both downstairs couches. Lastly, the temperature control is almost impossible. Upstairs suite was like a sauna with the temp set to 66 and windows/doors open in 40 degree Fall weather. Main floor bedrooms weren't much cooler. A few kitchen utensils could use updating and the hot water was temperamental. None of these items really hindered our experience and we did enjoy our stay thoroughly.
