  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.

We loved staying at this property along with our family dogs. We brought our boat along and were able to dock right on the private dock. The dock also provided a great place to swim, sit in the sun, and enjoy the views.
So great to hear, Sydney! Come back and visit again soon. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

The place has plenty of amenities to keep us all busy for the week. Dock, Pool table, corn hole, gaming system in basement - loads of utensils (knives need sharpening). Serene back yard with firepit where we cooked smores and marshmallows. The hot tub was divine! Watch our for mosquitos though - proximity to the water and a ton of rain the week before made them swarm!
Thanks for your feedback regarding the utensils, James - we'll be sure to pass your comments along. We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay overall (those mosquitoes can certainly be a pain) and hope to have you back again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

We booked Lake Effect to take in all the Fall foliage and boy, we were not disappointed. The house has a nice deck that overlooks the lake where we took full advantage of eating breakfast each morning. The property was big enough for our 2 dogs to run and enjoy the lawn. The house is nicely furnished with everything you need to cook in the kitchen. Very cute decor and made us feel like we were in the mountains with the 3 foot bear next to the fireplace. The fire pit and hot tub were very nice additions to our stay too. We loved it and will be back!
Hi Jamie! We are happy you had a great time at Lake Effect! We hope to have you back in order to take in the other seasons at Deep Creek Lake as well! - Seneca, Railey Vacations

We traveled with family/grandkids/family Lab. House was perfect for walking dog down the quiet street in the morning/evening. Located on the water in a cove so it was perfect for playing in the lake around the dock. We used the two storage racks for our waverunners to store them out of the water when not in use- a big plus! New outdoor chairs/tables delivered the week we were there for bottom level porch and for dock area- nice too! Everyone was great to work with and responded back to my inquiries within a couple hours or sooner. We will definitely be returning to this property again with the family!

The cove the house is located in is quiet and peaceful. Lots of beds for various sleeping arrangements. Also the grill and decks are so nice—and we loved the hot tub!

I had a great experience. Me and few friends went for the weekend for some girl bonding. We loved the house, the only problem we had was the deck was not shoveled. So we could not spend much time out there. It was snow on the deck and all over the chairs and table that are on the deck. Also we had a slight problem with the trash cans. One would not open and one was buried in ice from the snow, other than those two minor things, it was an awesome stay. We are looking forward to coming back in the summer.
I'm sorry to hear you had snow trouble, Jene! Please never hesitate to give us a call if you find yourself unable to use amenities due to snow - we're happy to provide assistance. I'm so glad these inconveniences didn't disrupt your stay too much and that you were able to enjoy overall! We hope you'll visit us again soon. - Lainey, Railey Vacations
