Hi, Barry! Thank you for choosing us to host your vacation at the lake! I do apologize about the dishes and will pass the work along to our housekeeping supervisor.

The perfect cabin

My group and I loved the cabin so much. The kitchen was amazing and fully equipped and the grill was fantastic and conveniently positioned next to the kitchen. The hot tub was my favorite very clean and a relaxing way to spend the day and night looking at the stars. While it wasn’t completely secluded, it was far enough from other cabins. I appreciated how close the state parks were (highly recommend Swallow Falls) and restaurants and markets. While the loft shown was not available, the rest of the amenities were. Also 10am was very early for a checkout. Overall a great trip! Can’t wait to come back!

We wanted to get out of town for a few days and found Little Bear Cabin in Gallatin Woods. This place was exactly what we were looking for, quiet and tucked away, the neighborhood offered plenty of places to walk and it was convenient to all deep creek has to offer. The cabin remarkably clean and amenities provided by Railey were fantastic. Will definitely rent through Railey again!

Our 3 kids and dog loved our stay at Little Bears Den! The fireplace was great and the tv apps worked great. The fenced in deck allowed our little ones to run around and we enjoyed a short walk over to the little community playground. The wooded setting of the community made it feel like we were away from it all, yet the amenities of Deep Creek were a very short drive away. Would recommend a furnishing refresh, and we were disappointed the loft was not accessible. We'd love to stay here again!

The area is bliss, with plenty of nature surrounding you and the neighbours in the distance. The facilities are glorious, with all the appliances, utensils and kitchenware you require. Simply bring your food, your clothing and sit back and relax. We were celebrating a birthday and had three separate families, there was plenty of room to socialise but also have some quiet time over the long weekend. If I were to be really picky, there would be three improvements: give access to the loft (ladder was removed for some reason), the fire to give off more heat and rely less on the ducted heating and always have gas for the BBQ. Regardless, a beautiful stay which hit the mark!

We loved the look of Little Bear's Den - it has the greatest feel from the moment you pull in the driveway. And I know that this may not be for everyone but we loved the fact that it was the first property in the development, very close to the lake! The inside is the perfect amount of room for a small group and the furnishings were awesome to match the "cabin" feel. The fireplace and hot tub were our favorite amenities. In fact, the hot tub had a slight malfunction and the technician was there in under 30 minutes and made an immediate fix.

We had a great stay at Little Bear's Den with our family of 6 including 2 teens and our elderly parents. Just enough room to spread out and then sit all together in the main living area. The kitchen was great for cooking meals, and was well stocked with supplies. The porch and deck were both wonderful. We loved the feel of the house, the decor, the games, movies and the BIG windows. It was also great to be able to park our cars easily during the week, and have access to WIFI. It was so peaceful and quiet. We had a wonderful time for our first trip to Deep Creek, and look forward to returning.

Our overall stay was very nice and house was well kept and equipped with everything we needed. Downfall was that the refrigerator was not in proper working condition the first 24 hours we were there, our food never got cold enough and icemaker was not working. We had to keep our food outside (which is not ideal considering the bears and wildlife). In talking with the maintenance crew, it sounded like this had been an ongoing problem and could have been prevented. Once a decision was made about the refrigerator, it was quickly replaced but still took a good 12 hours for it to get cold enough to put our food/perishables back in it. My family have been renting from Railey for years and we continue to come back each year because we enjoy Deep Creek and great customer service you provide and the measurements you will go to make the situation right.

Little Bears Den decor was exceptional! Loved the antler chandelier - the dining room table and especially the bear carved in the mantle. Housekeeping did a five star job on cleaning! The home was well equipped and having firewood was a huge bonus! The only downside was a bit of musty odor in the master bedroom and unfortunately, the water smelled like swamp gas which made you smell like swamp gas after a shower :-(
