  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.

Description

DESCRIPTION:
You couldn’t ask for a better location at Deep Creek Lake than at our A Shore Thing lodge! Located a 5-minute walk from the foot of Wisp Ski Resort at the front and right on the McHenry Cove from the back, this house puts you in the center of DCL's top attractions. Easily set off for a day on the water with friends and family from the home’s private boat slip (you can bring your own vehicle, rent one, or rent kayaks and paddleboards from the nearby boat rental businesses!). Inside the open-concept home, you and your guests will be dazzled by the lush country decor, gorgeous high ceilings, long lake-facing windows, and all the amenities you need for a fun and comfortable stay. After an exhilarating day on the lake or slopes, enjoy a refreshing beverage on the patio, rock back and forth on the wooden outdoor swing, or relax into the hot tub on the lower level and watch the sun go down over the lake. On Marsh Hill Road, you’re also within a 5-minute’s drive of the top restaurants, shops, bars, minigolf, go-karts, and other family-friendly activities in the heart of DCL, and within 20 minutes of Swallow Falls State Park, Deep Creek Lake State Park, ASCI Whitewater Rafting, and more outdoor adventure spots.

Fun family week in Deep Creek!

Reviewed on 2022-08-03 by Dana

We had a great week long stay at "A Shore Thing". The house was well equipped with kitchen cookware / dishware & appliances and the layout was perfect for our 2 families with small children ages 4 to 2 years old. We did have an issue with the AC not working the first couple of days but every time we called Railey they quickly sent someone out to resolve the issue. The house is situated on a busy road with no front yard but it was not an issue for our group. The large grassy backyard was a huge plus as the kids loved playing outside in the evening. We did bring our boat with us and the dock was perfect. The house is located in a great spot with quick access to grocery stores, shopping, restaurants, hiking etc. We would definitely stay at this house again and look forward to our next Deep Creek vacation.

Thanks so much for the detailed review, Dana! We're so glad to hear you and your group had a great time at A Shore Thing and that Railey Vacations staff were responsive to your needs during your stay! We appreciate your understanding that sometimes unforeseen things happen but that we always do our best to attend to them as we're made aware. We look forward to the opportunity to host you again on your next visit! - Jenn, Railey Vacations

This was our first time visiting Deep Creek and we had a great family mini-vacation here. Property was very clean, spacious, and had many amenities. We enjoyed the hot tub, the convenience of having a boat dock in our backyard, and the beautiful view of the lake. We had a wonderful time and hope to return next year.

I'm happy to hear that A Shore Thing offered everything your family needed for a fun and relaxing getaway, Carol! Thanks for spending Labor Day weekend with us. We're looking forward to hosting you again! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

We really enjoyed staying at 'A Shore Thing' It was very convenient that we could book the house for a long weekend. Yard and house were beautiful. Furnishings inside and outside were very nice. Bedrooms and bathroom were spacious. We would definitely book this property again. Parking is a little tight but doable.

Thanks for this great review, Mary! We're so glad you had a fantastic time at A Shore Thing, and we hope you'll visit us again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Happy stay on the lake!

Reviewed on 2021-08-23 by Debbie

We had a wonderful time by the lake at this house. The layout was perfect for our group. One couple was upstairs, one on the main floor , and the two teenage kids were downstairs and liked having their own area. The house has lots of windows so it’s bright, which is nice. Even though we had some rainy days, it never felt dark or gloomy. The walk to the lake is very easy and the lake is closer to the house than we thought it would be. The deck is very spacious as well! The bathrooms are huge and well-done. The kitchen is also a nice size. It’s easy to get to the local grocery store and the local coffee shop. I think we might have been the first renters in this home and we hope that they have many more happy renters to come!

Thanks so much for this kind and detailed review, Debbie! We’re glad your family loved A Shore Thing, which is indeed one of our newer homes. As such, your review is greatly appreciated and will surely help future guests in planning their stay. We’re so happy to have been able to host you and hope to do so again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations
