  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.

Amazing Stay at Absolute Delight

We had a perfect weekend getaway thanks to this wonderful house! The property is perfectly located right on the lake and has spectacular views. Our group was impressed by how clean and spacious it was. The hot tub was definitely a huge plus given the snowy weather we got in April! Would highly recommend for large groups.

Thank you so much for this wonderful review, Rebecca. We're so excited your stay was everything you hoped it would be, and we totally agree with you about the hot tub in snowy weather! We look forward to hosting you again in the future. -Susan, Railey Vacations

Annual Ski Trip to Deep Creek

Reviewed on 2022-03-13 by Stephanie

This was our second stay at Absolute Delight (stayed in it 6 years ago). The home comfortably fit all of us with the 8 bedrooms. The layout of bedrooms and bathrooms maximized the use of the bathrooms (either private bath or shared which was great). Deck, patio, fire pit, and grill were used the entire weekend! The ability to connect to the indoor and outdoor speakers added to our atmosphere. Path to lake as well as private covered picnic table next to lake was great (also solar lights within trees). Kitchen was beyond stocked with silverware, dishes, pots/pans, 2 coffee pots, 1 keurig, 2 refrigerators, 2 ovens, and 2 dishwashers. CABLE TV in the main living areas (including kitchen) and bedrooms - seems silly but most homes require you to sign into a streaming service. It's nice to start or end the day relaxing in bed with CABLE (tons of channels too).

We’re glad you enjoyed another fun and relaxing stay at Absolute Delight, Stephanie! Thanks for this detailed review. We hope you’ll visit again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Great time at Absolute Delight

Perfect spot for our group of 14- it was a repeat visit and there will be more! Kitchen stocked to perfection including two refrigerators and 3 ovens; hot tub was lovely; wood fireplace in great working order. Railey was very responsive to our calls. Only negative is that the wood provided is very new (not seasoned) so we did have to provide a lot of our own to get the fire going. Not a big deal, there is plenty of wood around to buy, even a wood vending machine- who knew?!

We’re sorry to hear that you experienced some issues getting the fire started, Maryanne, but are so glad to know that this disruption didn’t prevent you from having a fantastic time at Absolute Delight overall. Thank you for staying with us! We can’t wait to host you again! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Annual Family Christmas Gathering

Reviewed on 2021-12-20 by Weldon

Absolute Delight accommodated our group of 19 for overnight stays and our group of 24 for dinner and full day of family gathering time. The kitchen is well-stocked and the location is convenient for grocery, theater, restaurant on a rather busy section of the lake area. The house did provide for easy handicap access with only one small step to be overcome for wheel chair entry. However, the restrooms on the first floor were not as easily accessed with the wheel chair. Furnishings and layout presented some wheel chair challenges, which were all over-come. We enjoyed our two nights in Absolute Delight.

I’m so happy to hear that Absolute Delight accommodated your group well, Weldon! While we’re glad the accessibility obstacles were able to be overcome, our wonderful reservationists would be happy to assist you in finding a rental that eliminates these obstacles altogether for your next visit to Deep Creek. When you’re ready to begin planning, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us so we can ensure your next getaway is fun, safe, and worry-free. Thanks for allowing us to host you, and we hope to do so again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

The location was wonderful and access to the lake was so easy! We were able to kayak most of the day. Plenty of seating for 18 people in the dining area and also outside. 2 fridges in the kitchen was great! Cubbies by the front door were so convenient for storing bottle water, pop and household items. We plan on repeating our stay next year.

Absolute Delight was absolutely delightful. The location on the lake is quiet and the kids could play in the water without a lot of boats going by. The beds upstairs were brand new and super comfortable. The dining room table held 14 people, exactly the number in our party. We enjoyed the fire pit and spent a lot of time on the back deck. We had a great week.

4th year at Absolute Delight

Reviewed on 2019-01-22 by Nancy

This is our 4th year at Absolute Delight over Dr. Martin Luther King Birthday weekend. The lakefront property is a great location for Deep Creek State Park, movie theatre, grocery store, other state parks, and ski resort. We love staying here, but we may be outgrowing the house. If it only had a sleep sofa on the second floor in the loft game room we would be able to accommodate most of our group in beds. Even though the literature describing the house says that they provide blankets for the beds, they do not. Because we are renting in the winter everyone has to bring their own blanket. Rather inconvenient. The house has a well stocked kitchen, which we really appreciate, since we are cooking meals for 20 people. The driveway is quite steep, so you must have a 4 wheel or all wheel drive vehicle to access or exit the property. Railey Mountain Lake Vacations does an excellent job of keeping the driveway cleared and salted.

Thank you for the feedback, Nancy. We'll be sure to check the verbiage on blankets vs. what's actually accommodated in the home for accuracy as we certainly don't want to misadvertise what's provided. We're so happy you've otherwise been enjoying the last few years at Absolute Delight and hope you'll be able to continue to accommodate your group here but if you need larger accommodations, please don't hesitate to contact one of our Vacation Specialists to assist you! - Jenn, Railey Vacations
