  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.

Glorious Stay in Spring 2021

Reviewed on 2021-04-08 by Gadi from CHEVY CHASE, MD United States

My family and another stayed at the Waterfront Chateau in late-March/early-April of 2021. It was glorious. The house is a 1-minute walk to the lake, where we put in our kayaks with ease, even at a time when the docks could not yet be in the water. There's a small deck on a hill immediately overlooking the lake where we had coffee in the morning and where we waited with our kids as each waited their turn in the boats. The water itself was calm and there was a slight breeze that helped to keep us cool as we paddled. The house itself was large and very well kept. We cooked meals for twelve (five adults and seven kids) easily in the large oven and cooktop. One night, we ordered take-and-bake pizzas from Brenda's Pizzeria, which we highly recommend. The two dishwashers in the kitchen made clean-up quick and easy. There are also plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone as well as games and videos to keep everyone occupied when it was rainy (and even snowing!) outside. When we had questions or issues in the house, the management company was responsive and quick to address our concerns. Though a selfish part of me wants to leave a lackluster review in the hopes that fewer people will book this property, I must in good conscience give the Waterfront Chateau the highest rating and I strongly recommend this house to anyone who is considering it.
It's so great to hear that the entire family was able to relax at the Waterfront Chateau, Gadi! Though we certainly understand wanting to keep the good stuff all for yourself, we greatly appreciate your awesome review! Come back and visit again soon. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

We had a lovely time. Called about the shower door and someone came out right away, the driveway was cleaned right after the snow and we didn't miss any ski time! Great ski conditions, enjoyed the hot tub at the end of the day. Even the day we couldn't get ski passes was fun to play games and enjoy the view. Thanks!

Very clean, comfortable and spacious home away from home. The massive kitchen table allowed all our friends to gather for meals and the large kitchen was plenty of space for our group! The beds were comfortable which is a huge priority of mine when booking a vacation home. I also loved the proximity to the ski slopes and we really enjoyed our days at Wisp. I can’t wait to return to this place and see the gorgeous lake views in the summer!

Went last weekend with a small group to escape for the weekend and go skiing. The house was amazing and more than enough room for 10 people (you could easily get away with four or five families here). Had an idyllic ski weekend with fires, hot toddies in the hot tub and some games of pool. The top of Wisp Mountain is 5 minutes away and you can ski right on the mountain. Snowed all weekend and the driveway was plowed at least once a day and the town keeps the roads in good shape.
Hi, Braeden! Thank you for allowing Railey Vacations to host your winter wonderland getaway. We are glad to see you were able to enjoy the location of the property and its amenities to the fullest extent. Please, come back and visit again! - Seneca, Railey Vacations

We stayed there recently for a ski weekend at Wisp and were thrilled with the accommodations! Very spacious house with tons of room for larger families or a group outing with friends. Located very close to Wisp, this house was perfect for skiing during the day and relaxing by the fireplace or playing games at night. Lots of options to keep the kids entertained. I’ve stayed at this house several times during the summer and loved it for a getaway weekend on the lake and it was just as awesome for a weekend on the slopes!

I've been to this house many times throughout the years and wouldn't stay anyone else in the Deep Creek area. First, this location cannot be beat!! Wisp is within minutes and you can easily access the backside of the mountain from this house, helping you skip the lines. And, when you return from the mountain, you can warm up by one of the fireplaces, in the sauna, or in the hot tub. In the summer, we've enjoyed being able to spend the day right on the lake on the house's private dock. The large decks and outside firepit also provide other spaces to enjoy the weather year-round. Second, the house is enormous and, despite having up to 18 people, it has always felt like more than enough space. Always enough bathrooms and multiple dishwashers help, too! Looking forward to my next trip :)

We loved having enough rooms to sleep comfortably and enough bathrooms to accommodate all of us! Huge open spaces with giant windows and beautiful views made the house amazing! The hot tub, large common areas, and sauna were definitely a plus! This house is on top of the mountain and has a very steep driveway, so it was a little difficult to get out with the icy roads on our final day, but we were warned this would be a possibility, so it was not unexpected, but it is also not to be taken lightly!
Colleen, we hare happy you were able to enjoy Waterfront Chateau and all the amenities it has to offer. We apologize for the difficult weather, but we hope you will come back again soon! - Seneca, Railey Vacations

The home was spacious, beds were comfortable. I listed some areas in need of improvement. The outdoor seating in shambles. More care to the cleanliness of the floor air duct in kitchen, laundry area. The docks were in need of repair, there is a large tree that looks like it could fall into docks, that needs to be removed.
Hi Cynthia, thank you for the feedback. We'd like to let you know that we did inspect for outdoor seating in a severe state of disrepair but did not find anything at the home fitting that description, I do apologize if you felt it was not in suitable condition during your stay however. The air ducts were given a thorough cleaning and will continue to be well maintained! We'll also take a look at the dock for any necessary repairs but please know the buffer strip is state owned and there may be limitations as to how we address the tree you've mentioned. We hope you'll visit us in Deep Creek again soon! If this home did not suit your tastes, we have many other homes and we most certainly feel we can find one to suit your ideal vacation. - Jenn, Railey Vacations

Lovely large house with plenty of room to spread out inside or outside. Kitchen is well equipped (though the addition of a toaster oven would be welcome) with two big refrigerators and lots of cookware. Dock was great, just fine for our 21 foot boat. Two cautions--look for the Railey sign with the house name (no street number marks the driveway) and boat trailer parking is suitable only for small, light weight trailers at most.
Happy to hear you had a great time, Douglas! Please come back and see us again. - Jenn, Railey Vacations

Great house with a great layout. Plenty of room for everyone and lots of space to hang out. The walk to the lake wasn't too steep or full of steps, and the private dock was perfect for swimming from (although the fish weren't biting). We had a cool and rainy week, making the hot tub and sauna much appreciated. We'd go back in a heartbeat!

This house is just as described. Very roomy and perfectly clean. Our family of 20 had a great time. There was plenty of room, so no one felt crowded. It has a very nice dock, which we used for the pontoon we rented from Silver Tree Marine. The kitchen is stocked with any kind of pan or utensil you could need, and a very nice double sized refrigerator, plus a second refrigerator in the pantry area. The customer service and maintenance staff are great. We had an issue with one of the ceiling fan lights not working. They came out within an hour, and had it fixed the next day, after the part came in. We were very happy with our entire experience at this house.
Thank you for the great review, Brandy! We're so glad you had a wonderful time. We hope you'll come back and see us soon. - Jenn, Railey Vacations
