  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.

Amazing property in great, convenient location. You are within walking distance to stores and restaurants , minutes from Wisp ski mountain but feel as though you are staying in a private winter wonderland. The views are spectacular, the house is well maintained and decorated and everything was cleaned and stocked. The hot tub with heated towels was the perfect end to our day . We travel often, and this was one of our favorite stays to date. Highly recommend!

We recently stayed at “Playin’ By Ear” over Presidents’ Day weekend and had an incredible experience! With two families and three young kids under the age of 6, the location proved perfect. Not only were we close to the slopes, allowing for easy ski trips that the kids absolutely loved, but the house itself catered brilliantly to our needs. It came stocked with a variety of games and toys, which was a huge hit with the little ones.The proximity to the lake was another highlight, offering serene views and easy walks to enjoy the natural surroundings. Inside, the house was immaculate, showcasing a very clean environment and furnished to provide top-notch comfort and style. The accommodations exceeded our expectations, making our stay exceptionally pleasant and relaxing.We were so enamored with our experience at “Playin’ By Ear” that we’ve already scheduled our next trip back. It’s the ideal getaway for families looking to enjoy both outdoor activities and in-home comfort. Highly recommend for anyone seeking a peaceful, enjoyable, and hassle-free vacation at Deep Creek Lake!

It's so amazing to hear that you such a fantastic time with us Steve! We are pleased that the home was well equipped with plenty of activities for the kids as well as a great location for a day filled with skiing.

Spacious updated house with lots of amenities. Lake views from the master bedroom and living room were beautiful. We brought a kayak and paddle boards which were easy to move from the house to the dock. Enough room for extended family to visit together. Would definitely rent again.

Staying at this lakefront property was absolutely amazing! The location couldn't have been more perfect - close to The Wisp for skiing and snowboarding, within easy reach of fantastic restaurants, entertainment options, and a grocery store for convenience. Additionally, being lakefront offered breathtaking views that truly enhanced the overall experience. Waking up to the tranquil beauty of Deep Creek Lake right outside our window was simply magical. The picturesque setting added an extra layer of charm to our stay. The kids were overjoyed with the shuffleboard and board game selection, providing endless entertainment. The hot tub - a luxurious addition that made evenings even more relaxing. The property was impressively well-stocked and clean. Highly recommend this gem for families or anyone looking for a cozy retreat in a prime location!

Thank you so much for your well thought out review Lauren! It's wonderful to hear that the home was well equipped with all the amenities for you and your family to enjoy. The lake here at Deep Creek provides gorgeous views and a serene environment for the perfect vacation. We hope to have the chance to rent to you again soon! Madison, Railey Vacations
