“Great location and facilities for large family's annual vacation”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2013

We have been satisfied with finding this rental for the last five years. We have agreed to return for another year. We appreciate the response to our concerns last year regarding numerous maintenance issues. We treat this rental as if it was our own home and want to see it available, affordable and livable for the foreseeable future. We like the location on the lake and in the cove. We use the pool, theatre, gym, sauna and hot tub daily. The pool table is occupied almost constantly. The large dining room table and new table for the children meet our needs. We like grilling and the covered porch was useful this year because of rain. We rent a pontoon and enjoy hiking, biking enjoy a movie,family games or a campfire in the evening. The location provides a base for activities for all ages. Thanks for improving the back yard. The kitchen with two washers suits our needs but we found you might increase to four dish clothes and four dish towels to be adequate. The dryer is not working to capacity as it seems to take long for clothes to dry. We do try to do our part to keep things clean and found the vacuum cleaner does not function. The service with Railey is exceptional as we have had recent experiences with Hilton Head Island and Vrbo. The personnel are attentive, responsive and helpful, seeking to please your clients. Although we do not want to see the area become clogged with commercialism,we would recommend a camp bow wow franchise for the area to provide for dogs while on vacation. We will suggest this for additional consideration to the entrepreneurs at Railey.

“Wonderful Memories for all...”

Reviewed 21 May 2012

I was attracted to the Memory Maker for its Home Theatre and it was everything I/we thought it would be. A great home with all the desired amenities. I'm glad we got a chance to experience this home. We only wish that the suite with the bunk beds had a little more privacy...other than that no regrets.

“Absolutely the Best Home!!!”

Reviewed 10 Nov 2010

When we booked our vacation we were excited but it seemed just to good to be true looking at the pictures of the Memory Maker on line. When we arrived, we were absolutely amazed at how beautiful, spacious and well-kept the home was. Our vacation was definitely a memory maker!! Thanks again and we look forward to our stay in 2011!!!

“Absolutely wonderful”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2010

Oh my God we had a very nice time and my family and friends really enjoyed staying in Memory Maker and we will never forget this house cause, it has so many things to do in there and we had the theater, swiming pool, sauna, workout room and steamroom and we enjoyed being in Memory Maker. I would recommend this house to any one and they will really enjoy staying in Memory Maker.

“We Had a Great time but this place was not clean”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2010

This place was not serviced but it was rented to me. For 7,000 dollars please we were robbed. Cobwebs everywhere. A power wish would have helped. Some TV had to be serviced. The movie room TV had to be set up. Woukd never stay at this place again.

“The perfect house on the perfect cove on perfect DCL.”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2010

We have spent 11 summers renting through Railey. This was the sixth summer at Memory Maker. We loved the remodel of the house two years ago and find the theater and invaluable ammenity. The cove is perfect for the kids and adults to swim and lounge. The only downside to this home is the extremely heft price tag. We certainly could not afford the rental without the multiple families we rent it with for the week.

“great family oriented complex; great location. truly memorable.”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2010

For the price we pay I was not happy about a couple issues which arose: The housekeeping staff had difficulty finishing their clean up from prior visitors on time and ran almost a couple hours over. They did a fine job and they thanked us for our patience. Sky lights in two upstairs bedrooms required Jim to do an impromtu cover up with plastic garbage bags and painters tape. Sorry, but we do not need daylight in the bedroom at 5 am when on vacation? Thanks Erin for response and to Jim for Sunday visit to accomodate . Ignored/Undone Repairs to gym equipment: treadmill stuck on safe and leg press machine cable sheared. Athletic family expects to use gym highlighted as a feature. No one called to respond or followed up on the request for repair.

Memory Maker is a beautiful home with a pool house in a great location. However, during my stay with 18 other family members, we discovered the main house and the pool house had ceiling leaks, air conditioning problems and broken furniture. Needless to say, this created quite a few inconveniences. It was obvious this particular home was not properly maintanced or inspected before our arrival. This was my third time renting from Railtey, and my first time being dissapointed.

We had a blast! The customer service team went above and beyond their call of duty. It was a surprise and they never slipped up and called my home, they followed great instructions and helped me to make this the best surprise party my husband has ever experienced. There were 8 couples and each of them are still leaving thank you's and pictures on my email. The property was not just amazing online, it was so much better in person--just incredible. I was speechless when we pulled up. I still can't believe we pulled it off. All of the amenities were spectacular and we are considering doing a family trip next year for either Thanksgiving or Christmas...can't wait! The only thing we didn't like was it was a short stay(weekend) and we would have loved to stay one more day. "Thanks Railey Mountain Staff" for all of your help and professionalism.

“Christmas at Deep Creek”

Reviewed 29 Oct 2009

I rented Memory Maker for the Christmas holiday, taking all the kids, their spouses, and grandkids. This house is all they describe and more. Some times you can go for a while and not see anyone. The house is well maintained. Having a Stadium Theatre (seats 20) was great for everyone. The swimming pool was a big deal for the kids. The indoor and outdoor hot tubs gave the adults hours of fun. Memory Maker has two separate buildings with a small private parking lot between the buildings. Two of the bedrooms are located in that building with a loft kitchenette style living room space along with the movie theater, gym, the pool, indoor hot tub. In the main building the loft area with the pool table was great for small tournaments. The only problem we had was the lack of a big snow. I wished we could have been snowed in so we could stay longer. You will totally fall in love with this house, we did. I will rent Memory Maker again.
