Just shy of perfect

Reviewed on 2022-10-14 by Jake

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!

Newer and Comfortable Cabin

House was adequate and on the newer side. The neighbor has built a building looking directly into the living room and drapes on the sliding glass doors would be a wonderful idea.

Hi Wendy! We appreciate you taking the time out and leaving us a review! We are glad to know that you enjoyed your time at Lighthearted Lodge and will be sure to pass along your recommendations concerning the drapes to the homeowner for consideration in future home improvements, We hope we have the opportunity to rent to you again in the future!

Lighthearted adventure

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

New home in a peaceful setting away from it all. Located in a quieter part of Deep Creek, this house is new and inviting inside and out. Large deck, plenty of places to sit for eating or playing games together. Lake access is a short drive away where we launched our SUPs in a calm part of the lake.

We’re so glad you enjoyed Lighthearted Lodge, Jennifer! Please come back and visit again soon. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Our family had a great vacation and stay at the Lighthearted Lodge. We loved the layout of the cabin and felt right at home. Everything was easily accessible and very clean. The hot tub and air hockey table were big hits for our family.

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!

So glad to hear you enjoyed yourselves! Come back and relax again soon. - Lainey, Railey Vacations
