  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.
  2. Ski Area
    Ski Area homes and units are in the direct vicinity of Wisp Resort. Ski Area homes may require you to drive a very short distance and/or cross a road by foot. Some homes under Lake Front, Lake Access or Lake Area may also be considered a Ski Area property.

Great location, fun for the whole family.

Perfect location for our Wisp ski trip. Nice view of the lake. Roomy foyer for ski gear. Had fun in the loft game room one day, as it rained and we didn't venture out. Knives in Kitchen were great, I'm used to bringing my own because they are never good. King bed in every bedroom. Only con, not necessarily the owners fault - 70% of the dishes/pots/pans were dirty, so we had to clean everything before we used it.

Hi, Stacy! I’m sorry to hear that the dishes were dirty upon your arrival - we ask all guests to wash any dishes used during their stay prior to departing and also have our housekeeping team check to be sure this was done. We regret that these steps were missed and will share your comments with our team as a reminder. Despite this hiccup, we’re so glad to know that you had a great time at Rivendell overall, and we hope you’ll visit us again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

We found a lot of dead bugs, beds and pillows were uncomfortable and in addition to old tvs that were not working well not a single amenity was provided (we had to bring own toilet paper, trash bags, dishwasher pods, washing machine and dish detergent, not even salt was provided in the kitchen) Paid luxury price for very average rental Only the location within 1 min of slopes was a plus

Hi, Merav! I’m sorry to hear that a few aspects of your stay did not meet expectations and appreciate you taking a moment to share your experience with us. I’ve relayed your comments regarding the bedding to the homeowner for reference when making updates. Because bedding preferences vary so greatly, it can be difficult to find a solution that is perfect for every guest. That said, feedback is always appreciated and considered. We’ve also made our maintenance team aware of your comments regarding the televisions and will have these inspected to be sure they are in working order for our future guests. As outlined in your booking agreement, we do not provide toiletries, cleaning supplies, food items, or paper products in the interest of our guests’ safety. We apologize for any inconvenience. We hope that you were able to enjoy your stay at Rivendell overall and look forward to the opportunity of remedying any lingering disappointment with a fantastic DCL getaway in the future. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

We love the house it fits our family needs along with the location on the lake. We were a little disappointed in the appliances (hard to work them) and needs some updates in some areas of the house like painting. Otherwise we were satisfied with the house after Railey fixed our problems. (Kitchen faucet was loose, sink in 2nd bathroom would not drain properly, toilet seat was loose in the master bathroom and mold issues in the first bathrooom on the main level.) Railey was quick to fix the problems except for the dock.
