    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.

Awesome Cabin Retreat

Special Memories was the perfect location for out 15 person family get together! Large upper and lower decks with plenty of seating and a beautiful view! Dock for person boat and kayaks with well lite pathway. Fire pit, volleyball court and plenty of grass area to play yard games. Comfortable beds with cute loft area for the kiddos. Large indoor table for eating and games and great entertainment space in basement. The only minor complaint was that the lake was much more rough than we anticipated. It was difficult to paddle board and dock was a bit rocky but completely out of the owners control! Highly recommend this beautiful cabin on the Lake!
I'm so glad to hear that the house met all of your expectations, Sarah! We hope the lake will be a bit calmer for your next visit - see you then! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

The weekend we stayed at this location was a group of graduate students to celebrate the end of their program. This location was perfect as it had plenty of space to cook and eat dinner together, play some yard games, and enjoy the spa. We all had a very great impression of this property and will definitely consider it as a place to stay in the future!

The house was great. The only complaint is the showers, particularly the water pressure in the master bath. It was insufficient to take a shower so we all ended up using the shower on the main level which kind of screams at you. ;-) Love renting houses with Railey. Love the sheets and towels being included and especially love the care package you provide with the essentials. It's so nice.
We're so glad you had a wonderful time at Special Memories, Amelia! Thank you for alerting us to the water pressure issue in the main bathroom - we'll have our maintenance team address this right away.

Pictures online do not do this home justice. It is a great space - upstairs, downstairs and outside. We had 15 people stay and there was plenty of room for this many plus more. There is plenty of outdoor/usable lawn space so that we could really enjoy it + the lake. We played volleyball, soccer, through the football around, bocce, etc all in the backyard by the lake. The firepit was amazing and someone had left firewood over but note that this is not the norm so bring some or plan to buy some at their front office. The grill was filled with propane on arrival - awesome touch. There was also a smaller charcoal grill under the deck but looked like that hadn't been used in awhile. The dock slip was perfect (rented a 15 person pontoon both). Note there are 2 fridges...we used one for food and one for drinks. Hot tub was easy and nice - can improve on this by telling us how to change the temperature on a sign nearby (eliminate operator error :). Only thing I wished was a little more clear was exactly what was in this house specifically rather than "all our houses could have __". Did not appear house had AC but we actually didn't need it with ceiling fans on with a day as hot as 80. Mattresses could be better for sure. For a lake house, inside surprisingly didn't have bugs inside. Would 100% stay here again.
Thanks so much for this great review and all of the helpful feedback, Jennifer! We're so glad you had a wonderful time at Special Memories.

We had an amazing get together with great friends for my husband’s 50th Birthday. While the house and surrounding land right on the lake was great, there were a few things about it that could have been better. After arriving and putting things away, we started to notice little things. Some of the undersides of the table and butchers block kitchen island and cabinets were sticky to touch. The air conditioning only worked on the bottom floor of the house. That room was freezing cold. The water pressure was poor in the showers. Other than those minor issues, we had an amazing time and hope to return to deep creek at some point in the future, but probably to a different home.
