Check in was quick and easy. The home was lovely. Our son rented a boat and we all had a great time on the lake.
Enjoyed touring the Swallow Falls, Cathedral State Park, and Deep Creek State Park.
The Friday, Jue 29th storm was an experience to remember. It wind blew the gas grill about 15 feet across the deck.

overall very good property

My experience with booking the location and checking in helps to make this review an overall very good experience. We did have a couple of issues that put a damper on our trip. Luckily our party ended up being a little smaller than expected. I think having the entire party of 18 would have been tight. We ended up with 13 people and it was a perfect fit. Each room had its own bathroom and that was a plus. The room sizes were really nice especially the downstairs rooms. In my opinion only small children would be able to fit on the pull outs in the bedrooms. I couldn't even imagine a young teen sleeping comfortably in the twin pullouts. It was hard working the DVD player in the living room. The loft TV and DVD player had some issue with sound. We were unable to get the sound up enough so that the kids could watch a movie. Our biggest issue was a bad smell in the kitchen area. We intially thought it was an old mop and moved that to the garage. After the smell got worse we called maintenance to have them come check behind the refrigerator for a possible rodent. Because it was a holiday they were unable to come out but promised someone would be out in the morning. We never had anyone come out. I was disappointed at the lack of service regarding this matter. I explained this during my checkout and also listed all of that on the survey that was turned in. Although the checkout agent apologized for the lack of service, we were never contacted by anyone else regarding the matter. (The property was very clean otherwise)

our original rental fell through the day before we arrived due to the sale of the house called "Crestview" we were upgraded to this property and it was really nice. With the exception of no instructions on how to operate the DVD player in the living room the stay was perfect. As much as I would like to say we would stay there again, it is well above our price range and we couldn;t afford it but would certainly recommend it to others who could. Thank you again for a wonderful weekend! Read more

We had 7 couples stay in this house. The loft area pull out bed needs to be replaced. The springs were broken and they brought us cots which were worse. In the end, they did refund that couples money with no hassle.

At first the price seemed outrageous. However, with six couples it worked out to the same as a motel room. Accomidations were plush,with beautiful full kitchen ,barbque grills, dining room big enough for all of us,the ammenities go on and on.We all had a wonderful time.
for the most part, a great property!

Great location - we love the nine hole golf course across the street and the close boat slip. Very well equipped kitchen, which was frequently used by our resident chef. Excellent amount of outdoor furniture, which is used frequently. Two problems - hot tub started with a 'skunky" smell (quickly remedied after we called the rental people) and it is more set up for family groups than a group of golfing buddies - the six main beds were fine, but the additional fod out beds in the various bedrooms were quite uncomfortable.
Fun with family

The Falcon had too much rest - needs maintenence
Left on 01/20/2010 for a stay in January 2010 | snowbunny
Falcon's Rest had the potential to be GREAT, but fell behind due to poor maintenence and updating. Below are a few of our +/- about Falcon's Rest:
*Great for multiple families. Each bedroom had either a king or a queen, Its own bathroom, and a sleeper sofa or chair.
*Only about 30% of the lighting worked due to burned out lightbulbs.
*Arrived to house and found a pile of used cigarettes outside the door.
*Deck was completely covered in snow & we could not reach hot tub
*Bedding should be replaced
*Area rugs in kitchen were filthy
*Dishes were put away dirty
*pool table in loft area takes up too much space
*feels a little cramped inside

The whole experience was great. Upon arriving at the rental office. The people there were friendly and helpful. The directions to the home was perfect and the home was wonderful! It was conveinent to the shopping for food and the wisp for the kids. The home had everything it promised to have. The only thing I could not find there was a working can opener.
The home was very well maintained. However the furniture in the main room was soiled. Which simply means that it has been used often. The owner may consider a new one or even cleaning the existing one.

The house(Falcon's Rest)met and exceeded our expectations.A bath room for each bedroom was definitely a plus.The game room was well used by the younger and older family members.The house was very clean and well maintained.All of the appliances worked and most were used.The family room and fireplace was well used as was the large dining table.I received excellent service from all Railey employees.Would use Railey and request Falcon's Rest again for another Deep Creek Vacation.

Service was good. House was beautiful and very accomodating for our family. The only problem was I requested the outdoor furniture to be outside and they came and put them out late Saturday and the gas grill was empty and had to be refilled. Other than the few little things it was a lovely weekend.
