Amazing experience during your stay. House was very warm, accommodating, and personable. You xan tell that the owners put a lot of thought into making renters feel comfortable and at home. I would certainly recommend this house.

Love to hear that you had an awesome time with us, Tanya! It’s great to hear that the home, location, and amenities all came together for a great vacation experience. Thanks for the review and please come see us again soon! Madison, Railey Vacations

The house was really exceptional. Some cosmetic upgrades (new flooring, etc) had been done since the pictures were taken and we were pleasantly surprised. The house was very comfortable and well-appointed for our family getaway- we especially loved having 4 separate masters which gave everyone a bit of privacy if needed. The kitchen was well stocked and the appliances all worked well. There isn’t really a place to store food since the cabinets are all filled but there is plenty of counter space. We appreciated having televisions with cable and streaming abilities. The Wi-Fi also worked very well. We had quite a few devices connected and it handled everything well. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and the kids loved the pool table and air hockey table. We also enjoyed playing in the snow in the yard and admired the beautiful view. The house was perfect for us - we hope to visit again soon

Thank you so much for taking the time out to leave us with your thoughts Jessica! 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 that the home was stocked with everything you needed and the amenities were well equipped. We hope to have the chance to rent to you again soon! Madison, Railey Vacations

The house came just as pictured and was clean. It was perfect for what we wanted, a quiet weekend away with friends. The house has more than enough to keep everyone entertained. It's hard to find a space that doesn't have someone sleeping on twin or bunk beds, but this had 4 rooms with king beds & private bathrooms. It was perfect, will definitely book again!

Love to return and do it again at the same place, although we may try a lake side house next time! Railey app/reminders were perfect and timely. Loved receiving them to keep me updated and ensured I did what was needed to check-in/check-out. Pets were allowed which made life fun with our family pet. House had great features/amenities. House had ample supplies of pots/pans dishes etc. Lost of room for everyone to spread out. Only real issue was low water pressure so we staggered use of washer with our showers. We had Railey fix a couple things, that was an easy phone call and someone showed up who was very professional and took care of our issues. Great customer service from the people who fixed our frig door and hot tub!!

Thanks for your review, David - I’m sorry to hear that a few inconveniences popped up during your stay but am glad that they didn’t prevent you from having a great time overall. We’ll have our team take a look at the water pressure to see if there is any room for improvement there. Thanks for alerting us to this issue! We greatly appreciate your communication and patience in addressing the fridge door and hot tub, as well your kind words about our team. We are always here to help! That said, if you found that a Lake Front home would be preferable for your next stay, our wonderful reservationists can assist you in finding a home that meets this need and any others you may have. When you’re ready to begin the search for your next home-away-from-home, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. We can’t wait to hear from you! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

We just used them for the first time and could not be happier with their responsiveness and efforts to make everything right. Will absolutely use them again and recommend them to anyone! Only good vs great because I feel the communication concerning the rental could be clearer. Many documents, emails, and postings are very general. If your community has this then you might be able to do that, kind of communication. Especially with being new to DCL it would be nice for everything to be spelled out. They do have an app but it could use a lot of help. Buttons don’t consistently work and information has to be really searched for. But again, this was the only drawback.

Thanks so much for your kind words, Trent, and for your suggestions on ways we can improve our service. We’ll share your feedback with our communications team to use while making updates to our system. In the meantime, please know we are just a phone call away should you have any questions!
