DESCRIPTION:
Lazy Moose is the perfect home for your next getaway! As you enter this log style home, you will receive a warm welcome from the resident mounted moose head above the fireplace. For days and nights in, relax front of the fire, in the hot tub, or the lower den area shooting a game of pool or having a movie marathon. Looking for a quieter place to relax?

Great cabin in Deep Creek that fit our large group perfectly! The listing photos are accurate and the house was as described. We found the kitchen to be a bit small/ill-equipped to handle our group of 14, but everything else was great. Amazing views and communicative host. Would stay again but with a smaller group!

Our 2 teenage granddaughters loved the loft and spent most of the time there. The game room was a lot of fun with the pool table. The mighty moose was amazing to look at. The adults enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub in the evening. This was our family Thanksgiving get-together and we had a great time watching football, playing games and enjoying the home.

We always enjoy an annual trip in the fall to Deep Creek for the Autumn Glory Festival. Our stay at the Lazy Moose (instead of camping in single cabins) allowed the whole family to be together and enjoy our family time. The kids loved the moose 🫎 and all the space in the home allowed the adults to have their own ‘space’, while bringing everyone together for meals and downtime, if desired. The location was perfect for us as we love hiking. A quick ride to Swallow Falls and Rock Maze trails provided for enough activity to wear out children, adults and our dog! We had a rainy day and temperatures dropped so the indoor fireplace was a bonus. The pool table kept adults entertained for a bit too. We enjoyed our stay!

We appreciate you taking the time out to leave us with your thoughts Brenda! We are thrilled to hear that you and your family had a fantastic time together, enjoying all the different activities here at the lake. Please come see us again soon! Madison, Railey Vacations

The Lazy Moose was a great house for a week family vacation! The unique layout provided plenty of room for whole family time but also plenty of rooms for alone time. Some things such as the fridge and dishwasher could be updated and the overall look of the landscaping and cleanliness outside could be improved. Overall, it was a great rental and I would use it again!

We had such a wonderful time at the Lazy Moose! The house was beautiful and the view was just breath taking! We traveled with little ones who ooh-ed and ahh-ed at the wonderful Moose above the fireplace -- it was a big hit! The wood burning stone fireplace was fantastic and the gas fireplace in the basement was cozy too. The pool table and jacuzzi were great. We are VRBO landlords as well for a beach property so we appreciated the easy check-in process and wonderful follow up. Our only constructive remarks have to do with the kitchen ~ we don't think the refrigerator is cooling the way it should and some sort of storage piece to the left of the stove would go along way to add additional counterspace and storage. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us and we wish you all the best! Carol & Bob

Thank you so much for the great review Carol! The Railey’s staff and homeowners work diligently to provide the best rental experience possible and we love to hear when we have succeeded! We are so pleased that Lazy Moose was well beyond your expectations and that there was something for everyone to do there!

Our family of 11 truly enjoyed our time away at Lazy Moose. The management folks were responsive when we had a small plumbing issue. The only small issue was that the access to the lake was a bit difficult and w3e had to cross a busy road. We made it work, however. The house is well-appointed and had so many amenities that we could have left some of our kitchen items at home! We are used to some rentals being sparse in the kitchen department. But Lazy Moose had lots to offer! When we entered the house, we were all impressed with the lovely decor and beautiful construction of this home. The wood warm and beautifully done. The view was lovely and the weather was spectacular. We even enjoyed an outdoor fire one evening! Although the loft was not completely private, our group was able to make it work. Some of us had to work and the internet proved competent to handle the traffic. We rented a pontoon boat one afternoon (FunTime--great group!) and celebrated an 84th birthday at Dutch's Silver Tree--HIGHLY RECOMMEND! We ate on the terrace overlooking the lake and it was a magical evening. Thank you to the owners of Lazy Moose for sharing this oasis with us! Lovely!

We're so glad you had a wonderful time celebrating at Lazy Moose, Anita! Thanks for allowing us to host. If you found that a Lake Front home would better suit your group, our wonderful reservationists would be happy to assist you in finding a rental that meets this need and any others you may have for your next visit to DCL. When you're ready to begin planning, please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions you have or for recommendations of homes that meet your wants and needs. Wish the birthday-goer a happy 84th for us, and please don't hesitate to visit again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

We had a wonderful time at the Lazy Moose. The home was spacious, clean, and very well kept. HVAC guys had to come out to repair the ac/heat system but they were very, prompt, cordial, and thorough. They also came out to repair the gas fireplace downstairs but they did not have the right parts. Again, no worries. There was another firplace upstairs. We normally like to be lakefront but this home had beautiful lake views

I’m sorry to hear that a few disruptions with the A/C and the fireplace arose during your stay, Bobby, but am so glad these didn’t prevent you from having a wonderful stay at Lazy Moose overall. We thank you for your patience and we hope to host you again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

We had an amazing time at the Lazy Moose! The house was perfect for our group of 8, enough beds for everyone and enough space that it didn’t feel like we were on top of each other! One draw back during our stay is the house heat and stove stopped working! It turned out the propane needed to be refilled, which the management company got done the same day. Would rent again in warmer weather!

We found the Lazy Moose to be very welcoming with plenty of space for our group of ten to spread out. It’s a wonderful log cabin in a great location with lake views. Our only complaints would be that the kitchen could use a refresh of some of the cooking equipment and the hot water heater struggled to keep up at times. We would definitely stay again though!
