Deep Creek Lake is a great place to be a dog– just ask anyone here at Railey Mountain Lake Vacations. A big thank you to our employees for sharing some photos of their beloved pooches for your daily dose of cute. Check it out!

Meet Camden!

Meet Stella!

Meet Sage!

Owned by Jessie in Marketing, Camden is a playful pooch with a lot to say! His favorite things include cuddles, kisses, and sneaking into the cat food. Thanks to the science of doggie DNA testing, Camden was recently revealed to be a Pomeranian/Shih-Tzu/ Shiba Inu mix! The perfect mutt!

Owned by Leah, manager of our Owner Representatives, Stella is a true blond Labradoodle, in all stereotypical senses! Born in Mobile, Alabama, Stella happily resides and plays on Wisp Resort Mountain. She enjoys mountain biking, chasing skiers & snowboarders, swimming in the lake and lounging on the couch watching Netflix.


Owned by Laura in Accounting, Sage is a loyal, wild, and playful dog! She loves being outdoors and cuddling. She will gladly give you some kisses! Sage is pictured here playing in the snow– dogs love all the snow that Deep Creek Lake gets! Perfect for running through and rolling around in.

Meet Tanner! Meet Reba! Meet Duncan!
Owned by Leigh, Director of Acquisitions, Tanner is a 13 year old Lab Mix. Tanner’s mother was adopted from the local animal shelter; little did they know at the time, but their new dog was actually pregnant. Tanner is one of her puppies…two for the price of one! He’s a kind gentle soul that has grown up loving Leigh’s kids through their childhood years. Also owned by Leigh, Reba is Leigh’s “big girl!” This 3 year old Bloodhound was adopted about 6 months ago from HART for Animals. She has a mind of her own and that serious smug look fits her personality to a tee. She a big cuddle-bug and loves all the attention. She loves to go on runs and bellows the whole time she’s in action. Also owned by Leigh, Duncan- or “Dunc” for short- is a two month old chocolate lab. Duncan was an unexpected surprise that Leigh’s daughter brought home after spending a weekend with her cousin. He’s still in his puppy stage… so that comes with all its challenges. But Leigh says he’s the smartest dog she’s ever had! After just 3 weeks, he learned how to sit, shake hands, and lay down on command. Needless to say, he gets lots of treats. How can you not love all that cuteness?
Meet Lylah! Meet Tanner! Meet Hank & Winnie!
Owned by Mikaylah at Will O’ the Wisp and Devin in Hot Tubs & Pools, Lylah is a yellow lab. She is just four months old and full of love and energy. She loves to chew shoes and cords, but she’s a truly loyal pup! Also owned by Mikaylah and Devin, Tanner is a small dog with a big personality! She’s half Eskimo Spritz and half Terrier. Mikalyah’s dad brought her home when Mikaylah was 7 years old; she is named Tanner because she was “tanner than all the other pups.” She’s got all the energy in the world for being 12 years old! Owned by Jenn, RMLV’s data specialist, Hank and Winnie are two special dogs! Hank loves treats, barking at anything that moves, and long walks…to the couch. His sister Winnie is the rebellious, adventurous counterpart to Hank’s more lazy, reserved character. She loves fetch, zoomies, sneaking food when no one’s looking, intentionally covering herself in mud, and generally anything that gets her into trouble.
Meet Kohl! Meet Roscoe! Meet Bruno!
Owned by Christy at the Suites at Silver Tree and Keith at Property Services, Kohl loves to swim and chase his ball! Walks, hiking, and playing in the snow are also some of his favorite things to do. Owned by Amber in Purchasing, Roscoe is the Property Services office mascot! He spends his days playing, eating peoples’ lunches, and of course – working hard. He may be getting up there in years, but he’s not ready to retire yet! Owned by Jenny, RMLV’s Housekeeping Supervisor, Bruno is 13 years old. Unfortunately, he was hit by a car and lost use of his leg when he was just a few months old, so he now only has 3. But you would never know it! He runs, digs holes, and plays like any other 4 legged dog. His favorite pastime is chasing squirrels in the neighborhood. Always faithful, he is never far from Jenny!
Meet Sunna! Meet Patty and Duke! Meet Ellie!
Owned by Shari, one of our dedicated Owner Representatives, Sunna is a big and beautiful Great Dane! Also owned by Shari, Patty is a sweet black and white Boarder Collie and Duke is a handsome red and white Boarder Collie. Owned by Lori, RMLV’s Executive Director, Ellie is an Australian Shepard with one blue eye and one brown eye. She loves long walks in nature, swimming in the lake, and having her belly rubbed! Ellie has starred in many RMLV photoshoots!
Meet Alvin! Meet Ellie Mae! Honorable Mention: Meet Pooh!
Owned by Kellee, one of our dedicated Owner Representatives, Alvin loves to be pampered! Although he goes by ‘Alvin’, his full name is Prince Alvin Spuds Makenzie Oliver the Second! Also owned by Kellee, Ellie Mae, sister to Alvin, loves going on car rides! What a sweet girl! Matt, RMLV’s IT Supervisor, tried to pass his cat off as “the cutest doggo.” Luckily for him, we can’t resist a cute face! Pooh loves attention of any manner, knocking assorted objects off of tables, and eating anything and everything (including sauerkraut)! Although Pooh loves living in Deep Creek, we should mention that guests are not permitted to bring cats with them on DCL vacation.

From swimming in the lake and hiking in the woods to curling up in front of a crackling fireplace, it’s a proven fact that dogs LOVE Deep Creek Lake. As you start thinking about your next mountain-lake vacation, consider taking your furry family members with you. We have a large selection of dog friendly properties!
