  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.

We truly enjoyed our small getaway at the Water in the Sky in Deep Creek. This home is located in a private community and is located on a quieter side of the lake. We loved having direct lake access and a hot tub. The house was very clean and had plenty of towels and sheets for our stay. We also appreciated the rental company for leaving us a bag of toilet paper, dish soap, laundry detergent, etc. One quick tip: be sure to turn the hot tub on as soon as you get there! We didn't realize that it would take 6 hours to heat up and we were bummed when we couldn't use it the first night because we waited too long to turn it on. Another great feature was the glass enclosed porch with accent lighting! What a peaceful place for an evening drink and a morning coffee.
Thank you for the review, Anita! Regarding the hot tub, we're so sorry this was not prepared for your arrival. We do not have any expectations of our guests to prepare the hot tub for your own vacation and this would typically be ready to go as soon as you arrive. We're glad to hear you otherwise had a great time and hope we'll see you again soon! - Jenn, Railey Vacations

We LOVED Water in the Sky - it was the perfect cabin for our family of 4 with two boys (2 and 8) and a German Shepherd. It was clean, decorated PERFECTLY, and had everything we needed. The kitchen was equipped with anything we'd need and we loved the hot tub. The beds were super soft and we slept great. The lake view was beautiful and we had no issues accessing it or traversing the path to the lake, even for our 2 year old. We would definitely return to the sweet cabin.

The cottage was perfect for a "Couples Retreat." The cabin was cozy and clean and of course, the lake view was awesome. According to earlier reviews, the back door was not working and the house smelled heavily of pet odors. Those issues must have been taken care of before we arrived as the house smells quite pleasant and the back door worked just fine.
Happy you had a great Valentine's getaway, Glenda! Please make a visit to see us again soon. - Jenn, Railey Vacations

We really liked the location, very private, pretty and quiet. The dock access and lake were nice. Fire pit and hot tub nice. Great kitchen, great mattress . A few things to improve on would be landscaping, rethink that Victorian tub/ shower, fix the back door so it locks and opens, pet odor was strong.i have a dog but really strong odor. A bit pricey for the overall condition.
Hi Cheryl, thank you for the feedback. We'll absolutely be sure to address the concerns you've listed for any necessary cleaning and repairs needed. We apologize for the inconveniences. We hope you'll give us another try again in the future. - Jenn, Railey Vacations

Nice little cottage but Lake Front and Dock are the best features. Dock is great to just sit and float on with many ways to moor your boat, PWCs, kayak, etc. That is where we spent most of our time besides on the water. The semi- circular driveway is nice so you don’t have to back out on a narrow gravel road. It is in a private community so most of the time the surrounding neighbors were quiet with little traffic. Some minor fixes would be new floors, back porch door, rotting steps to dock, etc. Also wish the boat ramp was closer. Overall would stay here again.
Thank you for the suggestions, Chris, we'll be sure to take a look! Happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to hopefully hosting you again in the future. - Jenn, Railey Vacations

Our goal was to find the perfect little cottage and hopefully have a white Christmas. Water In The Sky did not disappoint and neither did Mother Nature with 10” overall of snow!! Our Christmas was MAGICAL! We put up a Christmas tree, roasted hot dogs, made smores in the fireplace and had the traditional holiday ham. We LOVED the property and we are planning on making it a Christmas tradition. THANK YOU for the memories!!

It was really cute and comfortable. It was exactly what I was looking for. It was clean. I would recommend this place for a single traveler, a couple or a young family. My dogs also enjoyed the cottage. My only complaint was that the WiFi was iffy but I went there to relax and get away so it wasn't that big of a deal. I had to unplug it a couple times and it worked. I would definitely rent this place again. Loved the location. It was far enough from the main road but convenient to get to things.

My husband and I had a great winter weekend at Water in the Sky. The cabin is cozy and clean and the décor is great for a cabin in the woods. The sun porch is wonderful to sit in except when it's too cold even with the space heater. The walk down the steps to the water is easy and the water view from the sun porch is relaxing and pretty. The kitchen is newly updated and nice, the king bed is comfy, and the bathroom is updated, clean and nice. Our golden retriever had a blast chewing sticks and chasing squirrels! We might try to go for a summer visit too. A few glitches were that the WiFi worked the first day we were there but then didn't on the second day, but we called the 800 number for the WiFi service and they walked us through how to fix it, and then it worked. We did have a safety concern about the shower that we shared with Railey to pass on to the owner that should have a very easy fix.
Happy to hear you (and your pup) had a great time, Janet! We hope you'll make that summer visit with us soon! - Jenn, Railey Vacations

Cabin is CUTER in real life, pictures do not do it justice. Cabin was SPOTLESS! As soon as we opened the door we were greeted by warmth, warm lights, a gift basket (notepad and pen, toilet paper(1), paper towels(1), a souvenir mug with tea and coffee bags, etc. So cute!) It was so CLEAN; we were so impressed. The furniture was cozy, the bathroom is super charming, the fireplace was perfection (we used it all weekend. Also, buy your own logs.) and the kitchen was stocked with tons of cooking and eating/drinking utensils. We literally felt like it was OUR cabin and we had just come home. NO WiFi. NO working landline. Frustrating as phone service is spotty out there being out in the woods and we really could have used BOTH for GPS/directions around town and also checking up our daughter back at home. Also, these amenities are both included in the rental price, so that was a little annoying. Make sure to prepare yourself to know where you want to go/get going in case you don't have gps or service to the outside world. Specially when it gets dark! Very dark at nighttime! The bed was super, super plush. Get ready for an awesome nights sleep! Cabin very close to all attractions. The water view was awesome and the nature all around was so inspiring. It was a really great cabin. Even with the little hiccups we would rent this particular cabin again!
Thank you for the review, Amavy! We're sorry to hear you had troubles with the WIFI and service. Deep Creek Lake can be spotty for cell phone reception throughout the entire area because of its rural location, which would affect both your service and your data. We'll be sure to check the WIFI at this home for any issues. Please know that we do not charge additionally for homes that include WIFI or Landline Phone service. Glad you hear you otherwise had a great time and we hope you'll come back to see us again soon! - Jenn, Railey Vacations
