  1. Lake Area
    Any home which does not come with any type of designated access to the lake but is located within the lake area. While these homes do not have access to the lake, they potentially offer many other great benefits, such as beautiful mountaintop views, quiet communities, great locations, and more. You can reserve a boat ahead of time at a local marina, or access the lake through the public state park, which offers a sandy beach.
  2. Ski In/Ski Out
    Refers to any home that provides direct access from the house to the slopes of Wisp Resort without driving or crossing a road. The convenience to the slopes in the winter is the best amenity! Some of our homes in the Lake Access and Lake Area categories may also be considered a Ski-In/Ski-Out property.

Nice house. Very close and convenient access to the slopes. Great layout and neighborhood. If the snow blowers are running, they are a little loud at night. The groomers can also be heard during the night. I guess this is the price you pay for being so close to the slopes and lifts. This would not be an issues three seasons of the year. Window coverings in the master bedroom are needed.
Welcome back to A Step Away, Jeremy and thanks for another review! We'll be sure to take a look at the window coverings in the master bedroom to assess if some could be added. So sorry you felt the ski resort activity was a bothersome noise level while here this time - we'd be happy to find you a house a little farther off the slopes next time, but still within a short distance! Please contact one of our Vacation Specialists and they'd be happy to assist you. - Jenn, Railey Vacations

This was our 4th season staying at this location, and our 3 families had a blast. Having the house right on the slope and in front of the lift makes life easy for the kids and the adults. House has plenty of room for 3 families including kids. Perfectly setup. Even the hot tub is in a great spot to say hey to friends while the get ready to head down main street.
Hi, Chris! Thank you for allowing us to host your vacation! I am glad to hear you all enjoy the property so much you have stayed four times! Thank you for entrusting with your needs, and we will be looking forward to your next trip! - Seneca, Railey Vacations

Neighbors were not friendly. Asked us to turn outdoor movie down which we did immediately and still called rental office. Called rental office because we were temporarily parked by their place while unloading. (They were not there yet but must have seen on their camera) Accused us of a towel in their front yard that was there when we arrived. We threw the nasty thing away anyway. Would not say hi or acknowledge us. Just not relaxing when you have people like that to contend with.
Thank you for letting us know about the neighbor interaction, Walt. We'll be sure to investigate this. Oftentimes, this is another rental home and so the likelihood you would encounter this kind of interaction again is very rare. Regardless, we apologize you had this experience disrupt your vacation and hope you'll give us another try in the future. If you feel you'd like to try another home, please call our vacation specialists and they'd be happy to assist you in finding another accommodation! - Jenn, Railey Vacations

Beautiful House

Reviewed on 2020-09-02 by Pearl

House was very clean and beautiful. Hot tub was wonderful on chilly nights. Half the jets weren’t working but it was fine. I guess it was due to be cleaned on Saturday when the maintenance worker came to drain it and refill with clean water. It was a little annoying since it takes 8 hours for the water to reheat and it wasn’t ready until 11pm. We were not forewarned he was coming - he just showed up. The “community” fire pit was right near the house and there’s a pavilion with picnic benches and Adirondack chairs around the fire pit. We enjoyed using the fire pit a couple times. All in all, very nice house with a beautiful view. We enjoyed our stay!
Hi Pearl, thank you for the feedback regarding the hot tub. We do occasionally need to drain and refill these for maintenance reasons and so it may have been a time where it was necessary in order to maintain clean and safe standards for our renters. Our hot tub technicians visit to treat and clean the hot tubs every couple of days, we list this in the contract as advanced notice that we'll be popping by to keep that clean for you so as not to have to call our guests multiple times during their vacation. Glad to hear you otherwise enjoyed your vacation at A Step Away and we hope you'll be back to visit again soon! - Jenn, Railey Vacations

The property was great...we did not have the snow we had hope for over the New Years holiday, but we were able to walk to the open lifts and the home provided enough space for us to enjoy being in the home together. It was clean and the bedrooms were spacious. The kitchen and large dining area accommodated our needs, we had a full house. The back deck with the hot tub really helped since we were not able to ski as much as we hoped. (Reviewed on VRBO)
