Walk about chalet

Reviewed on 2022-10-13 by Keith

Overall we were pleased with the space and utensils. The place was not cleaned to reasonable standards meaning alot of dust on common furniture in bedrooms and dog poop on one of the balconies. Some of the light fixtures and ceiling fans did not work, but overall it met are needs. Family time is what we were there for and we had a blast.

Hi Keith! We appreciate your feedback and sincerely apologize for the appearance of the home upon arrival. We strive to provide the best rental experience possible, however we are only human and sometimes we do miss our mark. Please feel free to call us in the future with any issue you may have and we will send out housekeeping or maintenance to remedy these issues quickly. We otherwise are happy to hear that you and your family had an awesome time on vacation! And we hope to have the opportunity to rent to you again in the future to leave a better impression.

Walk About Chalet- great house with an awesome layout for big groups! Loved the loft area!

Hi, Stacy. Thank you so much for your awesome review! We really appreciate you taking the time to let us know a little about your stay at Walk About Chalet. It's sometimes difficult to find a great place to stay with a larger group. We are so excited to hear how well the home and the layout worked out for yours. When you are ready for another Deep Creek lake vacation, please give us a call. We would love to host you again. -Susan, Railey Vacations.

Great location. But very poorly maintained and run down.

Great location proximate to Wisp and to the lake. Really great layout for our two families totaling five adults and five kids. But so much was dirty or in disrepair, it was frustrating, especially for the price. Two toilets flush so weakly that they could not get a single piece of toilet paper down. At least one shower head was missing. The coat rack was mounted to drywall without attaching to a stud, causing it to fall out the instant we hung coats on it. The tea kettle in the cupboard was coated in grease. The arm that holds the hot tub cover was precarious - not fully attached to the base. So many items in need of repair, and the cleaning crew needs to move the furniture when vacuuming once in a while.

Hi there, David - I’m very sorry to hear about the disruptions you faced while staying at Walk About Chalet and have shared these comments with our team for review. While our team does their best to bring every rental to tip-top shape for each reservation, we are always happy to revisit the home to ensure your comfort. For future visits to Deep Creek, please know that you can always give us a call within 24 hours of your arrival should any aspect of the maintenance or housekeeping be found unsatisfactory; we’re happy to send someone to accommodate right away. Our team is able to make repairs and clean freely, but any replacements or deep cleaning must be approved by the homeowner, and we will be sharing your review with the owner for use when making updates. Thank you so much for taking a second to share your experience with us, though we regret that it was anything less than exceptional. We hope for the opportunity to remedy any lingering disappointment with a fantastic DCL getaway in the future. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Great stay for large groups

We had so much fun at Walk About Chalet! The large kitchen, dining room, and living room allowed for everyone in our large group to hang out and eat meals together. The kitchen was well stocked with all of the equipment and utensils you could need. We also enjoyed the privacy of everyone having their own separate bedrooms with plenty of bathrooms, so no one felt cramped or crowded. We did not go skiing, but the proximity to Wisp Resort is a huge plus. We could see skiers coming down the mountain from our view on the back patio. We recommend this place and would stay here again!

We’re glad you enjoyed your stay at Walk About Chalet, Brenna! Thanks for taking a moment to share your experience with us. We hope you’ll visit Deep Creek again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations
