I had an amazing time at this cabin! it was perfectly as described and so pretty and cozy in person. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the beds were so comfortable. I loved staying here with my family, it was the perfect getaway! The only thing to mention is how small the TV is but otherwise the cabin was a 10/10. Check in was super easy & we were able to have a late checkout for an extra fee. So worth it! Such a great experience with Railey’s Vacations. I definitely recommend this place.

This was a great place to stay. Quiet, but close enough to other places to not feel like you’re alone in the middle of nowhere. Plenty of space, nice and clean. Hot tub was great and very clean and easy to use. The only downside is there is only 1 tv in the house and it is in the basement (which was nice, but a bit removed when you’ve got kids sleeping upstairs)

Hi Rebecca! Thanks for the kind words. The Railey's staff and homeowners strive to provide the best rental experience possible and we love to hear when we've succeeded! We hope to have the chance to rent to you again soon! Madison, Railey Vacations

We loved our time at this home. It was comfortable, pretty, and surrounded by glorious trees in a beautifully green, quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed the hot tub, dinners on the deck, cooking in the well-stocked kitchen, and being so close to the dock and swim area. We've been coming to Deep Creek Lake for 19 summers, and this location was one of our favorites.

This house met our every need. The kids loved the basement and the additional games were perfect! The hot tub was great. The adults enjoyed the fireplace and quiet sitting area upstairs. There were enough beds and bedrooms for our group of 8. We enjoyed some cooking at home but also enjoyed the many restaurants close by. This house was a little farther away from Wisp than we have stayed in the past but it was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of that area as well. After the first time driving to Wisp, the drive there didn't seem far at all. We would definitely recommend.

Mae, we are so thankful for you taking the time to write this wonderful review of Lighthearted Lodge. It is great to learn that you and your group thoroughly enjoyed all of the amenities this home has to offer. Happy to hear that you enjoyed some of our local restaurants and the Wisp as well! We sure hope that you will come back to visit us in the future. Jenny, Railey Vacations

The Lighthearted Lodge was in a nice location and was decorated cute. The hot tub was a major bonus! However, I have two minor complaints: finding where to leave the trash was a treasure hunt all its own, and the cobwebs and dust (especially in the shower and the kitchen window) were a little off-putting. I am obsessively clean, so this may not be something that bothers everyone. As far as the trash, where to dispose of it was buried in the rental agreement and was time consuming to figure out. Maybe leaving a note by the door for trash disposal instructions or something would be more effective.

Hi Jake! We appreciate you taking the time out to leave us with your feedback. We will pass them along to our necessary departments as well as the homeowners for future improvements. Otherwise we are so happy to hear you and your family had a great stay with us and enjoyed the hot tub! We hope to see you again soon!

Absolutely stay here! We had a fantastic trip in January and we are looking forward to another stay. The air hockey kept our boys entertained for hours. After we shoveled the snow and ice off of and leading to the hot tub it was wonderful as well. One note, there are 3 queen beds and no doubles as noted in the listing. Everything was perfectly clean but we had brought our own sheets that ended up not fitting.

Hi, Jonathan! We double-checked with the homeowner on the size of each bed in the home and found that Lighthearted Lodge does include 3 queens. We apologize for any inconvenience this caused! The home’s description has been updated on our website - thanks so much for bringing this to our attention. Aside from this mix-up, we’re so glad to know that you had a wonderful time in Deep Creek overall, and we hope to host you again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

We had an amazing stay at this beautiful, new home. The finishes are beautiful, the loft and open feel is inviting, and the basement adds a whole other place to spend time as well. Whileit doesn’t have a private dock, the community docks were great, a quick 3 min drive and you’re there. Sand entry or stairs off of the docks. The hot tub at this home is spacious and so very relaxing. We had a great time and hope to rebook in the future. Thanks for sharing your home with us!
