Bug Beware

Reviewed on 2022-06-28 by Julia , Boston, MA USA

The view from the tall castle was amazing but we could not get past the amount of bugs inside the house- moths, ants, spiders, beetles. Majority of my travel group came back with bumps and rashes and did not know if that was from bed bugs or the furniture.

HI, Julia. Thank you for sharing the details of your stay at Tall Castle. We are so happy to hear that your group loved the spectacular view from this home, but are not happy to hear that you had to share the view with various assorted and sundry bugs. Of course, being in the mountains on a lake surrounded by trees does guarantee that you will never be completely bug free, there should never be so many that they interfere with your vacation. I'm so sorry you had that experience. I have passed this information on to the homeowner and our maintenance department who will solve this problem. We would love to host you again sans bugs next time, and hope you will call us when you are ready for another Deep Creek Lake vacation. -Susan, Railey Vacations

Excellent view, but definitely needs TLC and updating

We stayed at Tall Castle in May of 2022. The pictures definitely show the wonderful view of the lake you have from this property, however, if you're looking for an updated, modern, well maintained home, look elsewhere. This house has great potential but is very run down in terms of furniture, paint, hot tub, porches, balconies, etc. The kitchen was well stocked and the washer/dryer, although old, did work well. For the expense, I would have expected something much more well taken care of.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave specific feedback, Tracey. We are so sad to heart that Tall Castle did not entirely meet your expectations, but are glad you were still able to enjoy the view, the lake and the surrounding area. I have passed your comments and suggestions on to the homeowner. Guest experience is very important to our homeowners, who use guest comments and suggestions to inform their decision about upgrades and repairs. We would love to host you again in the future for a Deep Creek Lake vacation that meets all of your expectations. -Susan, Railey Vacations

This house was not what was expected. The house needs many updates with things not working. . Maintenance to the house needs to be done on a regular basis. Hot tub did not work. Unable to access firepit due to high weeds and grass. Door knobs falling off in you hand when opening doors and screen doors falling off track when trying to slide. Furniture needs to be replaced. Sofa falling apart . Beds that were advertised was not what was in the house and was hard.

Thanks so much for your review, Robert. I’m sorry to hear that Tall Castle did not meet your expectations and will be sure to share your feedback with the homeowner for use during future home improvements. Though our team is always happy to lend a hand with maintenance concerns, including hot tub repairs, we are unable to replace inoperative appliances/amenities or make changes to the outdoor landscape without homeowner approval. The homeowner for Tall Castle has been made aware of these concerns, and we hope to see them addressed soon. For future stays in Deep Creek, which we sincerely hope you will consider, please know that you can give us a call to inquire about any recent or pending updates to our rentals, as we understand this may influence your decision about where to stay.

So beautiful, but needs some TLC

This house has wonderful potential. The view was beautiful and was so close to everything we wanted to do in Deep Creek. However, the house was not taken care of and given the updates that it needs. We enjoyed the outside dining area though we had to move chairs from inside to seat all our family and the adults enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings. We could not use the fire pit as it was down a hill with overgrown grass and no seating around it. We loved our trip, but would choose a different house next trip.

Hi there, Samantha - thanks for your review! First, I’m so glad that your group was able to enjoy the beautiful view and community surrounding Tall Castle. These aspects of the home are certainly hard to beat. That being said, we understand the frustration that comes from not being able to make full use of your rental’s amenities. We’ve alerted the homeowners to guest concerns regarding overgrowth, the small amount of outdoor furniture, and inability to make use of the firepit. While our team is happy to assist in any way we can, we are unable to make changes to the home without homeowner approval. We hope to see these issues addressed soon, and sincerely thank you for your patience. While planning your future visits to Deep Creek, please don’t hesitate to give us a call should you have any questions about a rental home, or if you would like suggestions of homes that will meet your group’s needs. Our team and future guests appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We hope to host you again soon. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Would not recommend until problems are fixed/replaced!

Reviewed on 2021-08-12 by Jessica

Before even checking into the house, I called about the bad reviews & was told they were fixed. When we got to the house, the hot tub did not work, the fridge did not keep anything cold, the garbage disposal did not work, bar stools are broken, and there are so many weeds that you cannot even walk to what they consider a fire ring. Very unhappy. When we called to inquire about such issues they were “not able to help” because it was after hours and I was told the longer I talked, the longer it would take for her to try to get maintenance. Would not recommend this house until things were fixed up! Only nice thing about the house was the view!!

Thanks for your review, Jessica. I’m sorry to hear that these issues disrupted your stay and regret to learn about the way your inquiries to our team were handled. Providing excellent customer service is a priority to us, and the occurrence you’ve described (being told we “cannot help” and attempting to cut your phone call short) will be investigated to ensure it does not happen again. While we are always happy to lend a hand with maintenance concerns, including repairing hot tubs or kitchen appliances should they stop working properly, we are unable to replace inoperative appliances/amenities without homeowner approval. The homeowner for Tall Castle has been made aware of these concerns, and we hope to see them addressed soon. In the meantime, please know that you can give us a call to inquire about any recent or pending updates to our rentals, as we understand this may influence your decision about where to stay.

Great view but needs updates and items fixed

Great view good location. Hot tub not working only 74 degrees, dishwasher not working, door handle fell off, refrigerator not getting cold so they brought us a loaner refrigerator and put it in the living room and left the broken refrigerator too. We bought ice and used coolers for our food to keep it cold. Lots of spider webs, stains on items, main door sticks and takes 2 hands to open, pool table placed between 2 basement poles so hard to use properly. House does provide spacey rooms, a good view, and area had lots to do.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share feedback from your stay, Malissa - I'm so sorry to hear that your visit was interrupted with these inconveniences. We will certainly look into the issues listed here to ensure that your next visit to Deep Creek can be spent making memories. I'm glad that the area and view brought some enjoyment to your group, and we hope you'll return to Deep Creek soon. In the meantime, please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

I had a great time. Communication was easy fantastic. It was a bummer that the hot tub was broken by the previous renter, but they offered to fix it during my stay, however I declined for privacy and they respected that. They have flat screen tvs which are not in pictures, which was a pleasant surprise. Overall 10/10 would recommend. Amazing beautiful location.

I'm sorry to hear that the hot tub was not working properly for your stay, Tony, but am so glad this didn't prevent you from having a wonderful time at Tall Castle overall. We sincerely hope you'll visit DCL again soon! - Lainey, Railey Vacations
