  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.

The house was perfect for our large group. The kids enjoyed having several rooms and a separate tv area on the basement floor, while adults had 3 primary suites to use on the middle and top floor. It was spacious and well equipped (3 refrigerator/frreezers, washer/dryer, lots of cookware, sauna which we didn’t use, but was available) and just a short drive from Wisp. We loved the view of the lake from the back of the house, and enjoyed the clean hot tub. Plenty of parking for 4 large SUVs without having to move cars. Check in and check out was easy. We would happily rent again!

Love to hear that you had an awesome time with us, Claire! It’s great to hear that the home, location, and amenities all came together for a great vacation experience. Thanks for the review and please come see us again soon! Madison, Railey Vacations

This is the 3rd time we have stayed here and have found it enjoyable each time. The rooms are spacious and the amenities shown are accurate This time we encountered a problem with the oven (this was a little daunting as we always take most of our food) but a call to Railey had a service repair man sent within the hour.he needed to order a part but showed us what we could do to keep the temperature up in the meantime.

We appreciate you taking the time to leave us with your feedback Janet! Sorry to hear about the inconvenience concerning the oven, but we are glad to hear that we were able to offer a temporary remedy and ensure that it is repaired for future stays. Otherwise it's great to hear that you had another lovely vacation here with us and we hope to see you again soon! Madison, Railey Vacations

This was the perfect home and setting for a 4 generation family vacation. There was plenty of indoor and outdoor space for gathering. We had 9 adults, a toddler and dogs and always felt like we had adequate privacy. The refrigerator space, kitchen amenities and grills on the deck made it easy for us to prepare large family meals. We were so busy playing games, making s'mores and paddle boarding that we barely left the beautiful Waterfront Chateau. We hope to book again next year.

Home is a great size and multiple king suites were wonderful for our family group which included mainly adult couples. Kitchen was well stocked with quality pots/pans/appliances. The multiple fridges/freezers (3 of each) were a welcome benefit, though one of the freezers was not closing properly and couldn’t be used. There are no ice makers or water filters, so come prepared with plenty of ice/water. Kitchen is spacious and dual dishwashers are welcome for a large group. Beds and furniture were comfortable, and there was plenty of seating for our group of 10. The volleyball court was also a nice addition and sports equipment was provided. Lake access is a bit of a hike down a fairly steep incline, so be aware if anyone in your groups has mobility challenges. Once you get there, there is a lovely area with a platform and fire pit, which we would have enjoyed had more of our party been able to make the walk. A few minor repairs (blinds, door locks, shower doors/fixtures) would really push this property to the top of my recommendation list. Overall, it’s a lovely property with a great layout for large groups and nice amenities.

Wow, thank you for the wonderful review Laura! We will be sure to pass along your suggestions concerning the minor repairs to the homeowners for future improvements to the home. Otherwise we are so happy to hear that the home was well appointed for you and your group and that there was plenty of space for all! We hope to have the opportunity to rent to you again in the future! Madison, Railey Vacations

What an amazing house!! We had 8 grandchildren, 6 adults and 2 seniors. Everyone loved our time there!!! We swam in the lake, fished off the dock, played basketball, played pool, had a bake off competition (the house had all the utensils and appliances we needed)!! The kids played in the woods between the house and the lake and saw lots of wild life. It is a great property! We watched movies in the evening, played games, roasted marshmallows, BBQ’d on the grill and slept great on the comfy beds! We only left the house to go get groceries. If we had a problem with the house, Railey Vacations came out right away. Everyone had a blast and we hope to return again!! Highly recommend this comfortable vacation home!

Let’s start with the good! The house is huge, with lots of space, more kitchen implements than we expected, stunning views, and ideal access to the lake and its own floating dock. There’s climate control on each level, huge beds, and the bathrooms were great. It’s also clear the materials and furniture are high quality, even if they’ve been well-loved. Mornings on the upper deck are unmatched, and evenings around the firepit in the backyard are dreamy. There are boardgames, DVDs, and VHS (blast from the past!) for rainy days—90s kids will be delighted to see some familiar titles. The fireplaces and SmartTVs in every room are a great touch. Keep an eye out for deer, chipmunks, tons of birds and waterfowl, and the friendly groundhog who lives under the lower deck!The downsides: none of the screen doors have locks (no leaving the glass doors open on pleasant nights), and many of the doors were difficult to open or re-close (though I’ll chalk that up in part to humidity and swelling wood). The house wasn’t as clean as we’d like, though the sheets were fresh and the bathrooms were nice; there was a footprint high on a wall in the basement, several of the duvets in the basement rooms were uncomfortably damp or visibly unclean, and some of the kitchen items had obviously not been cleaned after use by previous renters or cleaners. The light and ceiling fan switches all face different directions and aren’t always labeled, plus the lights on the lower deck were either very faint or completely blown out depending on the lamp. Additionally, one of the trash cans up at the top of the drive had a broken latch and was torn into by a neighbor from the nearby bear colony when we first arrived. Heads up to future renters—bring extra bug spray! That’s not a ding against the house, though, just life in the woods.All in all, it was a great experience, and I’d definitely come back to the area, but the entire house could do with a little more TLC (especially the doors, lights, screens, and kitchen). That said, you literally can’t beat the location.

Thank you for taking the time out to leave us a review Em! We are so glad to hear that you and your group had a wonderful time at Waterfront Chateau and the home was able to provide you with all you needed and more! We will be sure to pass along your suggestions to the homeowners and our maintenance department concerning the screens doors, and the other doors to ensure easier use for future rentals along with the clarity of the lighting etc. Thank you for bringing these things to our attention as our staff always tries their best to provide top notch service for every stay, and we look forward to having the opportunity to rent to you again in the near future! Happy to hear otherwise you had a great time!

We always enjoy staying here and this time was no exception. Just a few comments - both dishwashers leaked-the ice maker on the second refrigator should be hooked up and lastly the check out time should be 11am. It is difficult for a house of this size with 15 people to all get it together by 10am. All said our stay was still very pleasant.

Hey, Janet! I'm sorry to hear about the few issues you experienced during your stay. I've shared your comments with the homeowner and our maintenance team for reference when preparing Waterfront Chateau for future guests.

Glorious Stay in Spring 2021

Reviewed on 2021-04-08 by Gadi , 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

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.

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 :)

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!
