    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.

Enjoyed the home, it got the job done with room for our large family Winter Escape. There were a few items that were either a challenge or annoying. The challenges were in the kitchen. The pantry space is nil. We had to rearrange one cabinet with plastic glasses to have any. The rest of the kitchen items we brought ended up on a long bench seat under a long kitchen window. Also someone needs to go through the pots and pans and replace as needed. Cooking for 20 was a challenge with what was there with both size and condition. Having 2 ranges, 2 refrigerators, 2 microwaves, and 2 dishwashers was definitely a plus. As to the annoyance. The floors are especially noisy, particularly in the kitchen. We had to put the center of the kitchen floor off limits until everyone got up in the morning. We had a couple of other small problems but once notified, Railey immediately rectified the situation.

Thank you for your feedback, Robert! We've shared your comments with the homeowner for reference when making changes/updates to Serendipity. We appreciate you taking the time to share and are glad to know that you had a good stay overall. We sincerely hope you'll visit Deep Creek again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Update 6/21/22: Hi Robert, you'll be happy to hear the owners of Serendipity have made many renovations and upgrades to the property since your stay! This includes new flooring installed in the living room, dining room, kitchen, and downstairs family room, painting of the whole inside of the house, repairs to the downstairs bathroom/shower, as well as two new stoves, dishwashers, and refrigerators, new kitchen countertops, new sink, and a new fire pit and chairs. We hope you'll be back soon to check out all the improvements the owners have made to better the property for their renters! - Jenn, Railey Vacations

House Needs Some Attention

This house worked well for our larger group of friends getting away for a weekend. The house itself is TIRED. It didn’t feel very clean, things were falling apart and there is a legitimate distinct difference between the heat on the upper floors vs the basement (at least 15 degrees.) I am not sure I would visit this one again - it is pretty pricey for a place with holes in the wall and pillows that are falling apart.

Thanks for your feedback, Luke. I’m sorry to hear that several aspects of your stay at Serendipity did not meet expectations and I’ve relayed your comments to the homeowner and our maintenance team to ensure your concerns are addressed as soon as possible. We regret that your experience was anything less than exceptional and we sincerely hope for the opportunity to remedy your disappointment with a fantastic DCL getaway in the future. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Needs Improvements

I have stayed in several Railey properties, and for the most part have been satisfied. However, Serendipity does not seem to meet the standards of Railey. While it is in a great location and is very spacious, the owners could benefit from visiting the property and doing some cosmetic work. When you walk up to the porch, the front stairs bow so be careful. The kitchen is stocked to the point that there is no place to store the food so we ended up putting non-perishables on the window bench. The lights under the microwave are missing the actual light fixtures. The refrigerator on the left is missing a bulb and a shelf in the freezer is broken. Let's not talk about how creaky the kitchen floor is! We couldn't get the dishwashers to work so ended up washing everything by hand - no big deal. It wasn't until the morning we were leaving that we realized there was a switch in the back under the sink - it may control the dishwashers, but we don't know. When you go downstairs to the lower level, the paint on the column at the end of the railing is chipping badly. We were very surprised to see a hole in the wall above the shower head in the hall bathroom in the basement. Also, one of the beds has a board with a nail hanging out under it. It was hard to regulate the temperature. People on the upper level were extremely hot and had to open the windows while the people on the lower level were cold. The back porch is expansive but the house is in dire need of being painted. None of the issues were great enough for us to call Railey - we just lived with them because it was only a weekend. I think that the owners should take it off the rental market until they are able to address these issues.

Hi, Hassan! We're so sorry to hear that your experience at Serendipity fell short and appreciate you taking a second to share your concerns with us. I've passed your comments along to the homeowner and our maintenance team for review and have emphasized the concerns you mentioned which echo those from previous reviews. While our team is able to perform regular maintenance and cleaning, any deep cleansing, painting, or replacements must first be approved by the homeowner. We will discuss necessary updates with the owner which will help to ensure our guests are comfortable for the entirety of their stay. Thank you for your review, and we sincerely hope for the opportunity to host you again. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

This is a nice home, but it needs lots of work done, the house floors are horrible everywhere you walk the floor sounds like you are going to fall in, there is mold on the roof of the house, one of the bedrooms in the basement had a whole in the celling, box spring on the beds are falling apart. If these things get fixed, I will rent again.

Great house for a large gathering but bring extra blankets if you are sleeping in the basement (50% of the bedrooms) and don't take the bedroom below the kitchen! Also ~ hope you're tall or like to climb to get pots and pans~ on the other hand-- bedrooms with the pull out chair/sofa were very good for families with little ones, spacious house, kitchen was stocked and kitchen table is great

Thank you for taking the time out to share your experience with us. We're so happy you had a good time at  Serendipity and can't wait to have you back soon. ~Deborah Fike, Railey Vacations

Our friends trip to deep creek was amazing! Our check in process was fast and easy. When we walked into Serendipity it was exactly like the pictures....beautiful! The house was very spacious and well prepared. The house was right near a dock to the lake which was great! The floors in the house are very loud and creeky, especially in the kitchen, so if you decide to stay in the bedroom under the kitchen be prepared. Our only issue were the door handles, they were very difficult to open the doors to the rooms. Other than that Serendipity was amazing and we will definitely come back!

The house was very clean when we arrived which is always great to see but we did have a few issues. The biggest was the lack of hot water. Many of us woke up to take showers but all we had was frigid water. It took us some time to figure out the problem. Someone had shut off the circuit breakers to the electric water heaters. We eventually had hot water a day and a half into our weekend trip. Secondly, and this is pretty minor, we made great use out the fireplace but there was no poker or small shovel for the fireplace. This made it difficult to adjust the wood in the fire and to clean up before we checked out. Again nice house but we did have things we would have liked corrected.

I'm sorry to hear about the issues with the hot water and the fireplace, David! I'm glad our team was able to return the hot water prior to your departure and we appreciate your patience in this process. We'll share your suggestion for a fire poker with the homeowner for consideration when making updates to Serendipity. Thanks so much for taking the time to share! I'm happy to know that you ultimately had a great stay overall and sincerely hope you'll visit DCL again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations
