  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.

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. We are sometimes able to accommodate late check-outs (and early check-ins), so please don't hesitate to ask about this option during your next visit.

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

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.

Huge, Awesome House with a Great Location!

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!

Sean, thank you for leaving a review for our "Waterfront Chateau." We enjoy reading such positive experiences and are glad to hear you have been able to enjoy this property in multiple seasons. We look forward to your summer (or winter) return trip! - Seneca, Railey Vacations

Favorite Place to Stay!!

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 :)

Hi, Christy! Railey Vacations loves to hear from repeat guests, so your review was a joy to read. Thank you for visiting us during all seasons! We look forward to your next visit at "Waterfront Chateau" whether it be winter or summer! - Seneca, Railey Vacations

Huge spacious retreat! Loved it!

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

We have rented this unit for the past several years, and have noticed a negative slippage in the maintenance.  Bird's nests above outdoor speakers, heavy moss on the roof, mildew on outside decks, and many webs and insect nests.

Thank you for your continued visits, Tom! We appreciate the feedback and will be sure to take a look at the items you've mentioned. I'm sure we can get these taken care of for your next visit! - 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!

And we hope to see you back soon, Allegra! Thank you for the review and so happy to hear you had a wonderful time. - Jenn, Railey Vacations

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

We have stayed at Waterfront Chateau with our friends on many occasions for ski weekends at Wisp and always have a great time. You are close to the top of the mountain and the house is comfortable and nicely furnished. We will certainly continue to stay there.

Happy to hear it, Gregory! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
