Amazing stay!

My family and I had an awesome and amazing stay at On the Rocks! I have stayed in several houses at Deep Creek and this is hands down THE BEST! The house was very clean and well taken care of. Every little detail is perfectly thought out and the space couldn’t be more perfect. The hosts were wonderful as they knew it was our 10-year wedding anniversary and had a bottle of champagne waiting for us upon arrival... that's the personal touch at its best! The house is fully equipped with everything you need to have a comfortable stay and the location is super convenient to the lake, Wisp, shops and restaurants. We had a great day on the lake and came back and relaxed in the hot tub and played games. This was the PERFECT place for our family to celebrate our special day!

Hi Ethel! Thank you so much for this amazing 5 star review! We were at Railey’s and the homeowners work diligently to provide the best rental experience possible and we love to hear when we’ve succeeded! It’s wonderful to hear that everything at On The Rocks was all you expected and more and that no detail was overlooked! We hope you got to experience all DCL has to offer and look forward to having the opportunity to rent to you again in the future!

What an amazing home!! My family & I had an incredible stay at the On The Rocks home. It was clean, cozy, and perfect for a large family. Each room has its own bedroom which was super convenient, and perfect for families with lots of kiddos! The back deck has a gorgeous view, and the home is close to so many great activities for all. We rented a pontoon boat right across the lake, enjoyed the local park, trails, state park (beach), indoor pool, arcades and much more! We will definitely be back!

Hello, Shannon. It sounds like On the Rocks was a perfect fit for your families needs. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this awesome review of your stay and for sharing some details of your vacation with us. It's really nice to hear the home's size, layout, location , and amenities exceeded your expectations. We are really pleased to know that you plan to return again. When you're ready, please give us a call. We can't wait to host you again. -Susan, Railey Vacations

We've been vacationing in Deep Creek each summer for many years now, and although we've rented many different homes in that time, this one is our favorite! The living room offers ample seating for everyone to be together comfortably, the mattresses were comfortable, tons of outdoor seating, and the porches...my goodness, the porches! A bonus was having a kitchen stocked with literally every gadget, utensil, and small appliance you could possibly need! Thank you to the Stitelys for going above and beyond in appointing this beautiful home!

Wow! This is wonderful to hear Laurie! We here at Railey’s and the homeowners strive to provide the best rental experience possible and love to hear when we’ve succeeded! Isn’t it great when the home, location, and amenities all come together to provide you with the upmost comfort for a relaxing vacation! We appreciate you taking the time out to leave us a review and we hope to see you again with us here at DCL!

Great for families!

Wonderful home for multiple families. We had private bedroom/bathrooms for all four families and quiet places for babies to sleep. We loved the views and the outdoor spaces--on the deck overlooking the lake, the level front yard with a fun rock to climb, glider sofas on the front porch, and the patio with a large hot tub. A small playground is a short walk through the woods. We loved our stay and plan to return!

Carol, we are so excited to hear that your group had such a wonderful stay at On the Rocks. When you have multiple families, there are a lot of different needs and expectations to meet. It's fabulous to know that On the Rocks was the perfect match for your group. Thank you so much for your five star review and for taking the time to share the details of your stay. When you're ready for another amazing Deep Creek lake vacation, please give us a call. We would love to host you again. -Susan, Railey Vacations

We stayed here with 4 other families. The home is very well furnished and well stocked. Very clean as well. Some of our kids even used the recreational center swimming pool facility and that was a lot of fun as well. All in all, a great stay !

Hi, Rahul. It's great to hear that your group had such a wonderful time staying at On the Rocks. With a large group, it's definitely important that the home provides enough private and group space to meet everyone's individual needs. We're so glad to hear that you were able to take advantage of the recreational center swimming pool. It's marvelous to have that option so close, and fabulous to hear the kids enjoyed it so much. When you're ready for another outstanding Deep Creek vacation, please give us a call. We would love to host you again. -Susan, Railey Vacations
