  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.

This was a nice property to spend time with our family and friends. The hot tub was great. The only drawback for the weekend was the weather. The fall leaves were beautiful.

Thanks for the review! We are so happy to hear that you and your group had a good time together enjoying the amenities. We hope to see you again soon! Madison, Railey Vacations

Smack Dab is definitely "smack dab" in the middle of all the Deep Creek action. The yard, dock and fire pit were very nice and enjoyed by the entire family. The hot tub was great and got much use. The bedroom on the main floor is very noisy at night (even with a sound machine on traffic could be heard) and also headlights from passing vehicles would shine in the room. The fans provided at the house were needed and appreciated. Exiting the driveway was a bit "tricky" at times since the neighbor's truck was parked along the side of the road which caused limited visibility and caution was needed because of the busy road.

We appreciate you taking the time out to leave us a review Ken! We will be sure to pass along this information concerning the neighbors truck to our staff to ensure that it is handled accordingly for the safety of all guests. Otherwise we love hearing that you and your family had a great time together and we hope to see you again soon! Madison, Railey Vacations

Good for short stay, max 6 persons!

Home was cozy. A little loud being on the main road and the floor boards squeak, so if you’re staying in the basement keep that in mind as you will hear every foot step from above. Wouldn’t recommend more than 6 persons as main living room seating is limited and deck is on the smaller side. Overall we enjoyed our stay but will probably choose a larger home for our party of 6 next time.

Thank you for submitting a review for Smack Dab, Sana. We appreciate it and hope you will come back and rent with us again! Jenny, Railey Vacations

This house was great and worked well for 2 families except for the fact it was on the main road and very noisy. The basement bedroom was very loud as well due to a noisy HVAC.

Thanks for your review, Natalie! I’m sorry to hear that Smack Dab’s location wasn’t quite what you were expecting. For your next visit to Deep Creek, please know that our wonderful reservationists are available to assist you in finding a home that meets all of your needs and preferences, and we hope you won’t hesitate to reach out. We’ll have our maintenance team take a look at the HVAC to be sure all is in working order for our future guests - while some noise is to be expected from the unit, we want to be sure it’s not overbearing. With all of this in mind, I’m so glad to know that your group had a good time overall, and we look forward to the opportunity of hosting you again in the future! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Hi, Callie! If you found that a more isolated home would better suit your group, our team would be happy to assist you in finding a rental that meets this need and any others you may have for your next trip to DCL.

The house itself is very nice, but because of the proximity to the road it is extremely noisy! The bedroom on the main floor is particularly bad as it faces the road. Also, the deck is very small. The table and chairs and the grill take up the entire space. There is no ability to lounge outside. There are only plastic chairs.

I'm sorry to hear that the nearby road was a disruption during your stay, Keith. Smack Dab is in a central area of Deep Creek and does see some traffic. If you would prefer a more isolated home with more outdoor lounging space for your next visit to DCL, our wonderful reservationists can assist you in finding a house that meets these needs and any others you may have. When you're ready to plan your next getaway, please feel free to reach out. I'm glad to know that you enjoyed your stay overall. We look forward to hosting you again in the future! - Lainey, Railey Vacations
