“Great place for a family vacation”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2013

We were happy with Mountain Joy from the moment we walked in to find freshly made beds and neatly folded towels, ready for our stay. The welcome bag was a nice touch and provided some essentials that helped us get through the first few days. We loved the open layout of the common area and the deck that runs the entire length of the front of the house. There were so many comfortable places to relax, alone or with a group. The home was very welcoming. The kitchen was amazingly well equipped - everything we needed was easily found! Lots of dishes, utensils, pots, pans, and even some "speciality" items. Great location for us as we spent time with family in accident, MD and liked being close to restaurants and shops in McHenry. We were concerned about the steep drive but no one had any difficulty navigating it. We had a wonderful time.

“The location was great but the facilities were not!”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2012

The services provided by Railey were very good; prompt response to needs and personnel were cordial. The best thing about the home was the location - in the woods, off the road, and close to activites. Otherwise, it left a lot to be desired: the kitchen and wood floors were dirty and had to be cleaned soon after we arrived, even though it was to have been cleaned before we arrived (what did they do in those 6 hours before we arrived?). The carpet was dirty and should have been cleaned before it was rented, the screen on a door was coming loose, faucets leaked, and the stove, in addition to being very dirty, had an element that did not work. If you say the house accommodates a certain number, it would be good to have eating space for that number. In short, we liked the location best and the house itself was arranged conveniently, but the cleanliness makes us think hard about whether we would rent this house again or any house from Railey if they do not keep better track of the quality of their properties.

“Family Reunion”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2011

The house was very nice, good layout, close to the lake and kitchen nicely equipped. The only issue with this house was there was no air conditioner and it was very hot and uncomfortable. I would not return to this house except for in the winter if I were going skiing.

“Accomodations fabulous for our group but trecherous driveway”

Reviewed 30 Dec 2010

As far as accommodations, the layout and features couldn't be beat. We did have problems with getting the driveway plowed and cinders applied. It took calls for three consecutive days before a plow came up our drive. (It was Christmas time) 4wheel drive and cars with chains had difficulty once the ice accumulated. Luckily we were able to park on an adjoining property drive in order to get about. Not sure I'd rent there for winter, but would in a heart beat for fairer weather conditions.

“Nice to be in the hills”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2010

The house was well equipped and had a great configuration for our extended family. The kitchen was very functional and the variety of amusements and places to hang out made for a lot of flexibility. The location was great as well.

“Relaxing, Stressless, bonding”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2010

We stayed at Mountain Joy which was comfortable and affordable. The hot tub was just what the doctor ordered and we cooked on the grill almost each day. This was beyond a doubt the best vacation ever. I was able to enjoy my two grand children (boys) for an entire week. one discovered the love of fishing in the lake and the other conquered the fear of riding the roller coaster. I had a full fun week. We shopped for gifts, visited Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural wonder "Falling Water", and sunbathed at the beach,

Response from the manager Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for recognizing our commitment to service. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to having you as our guests again!

“Mountian side slide!”

Reviewed 6 Jan 2010

This house is perfect for our group, we loved the layout as it kept all of us together on one floor, this is something we have been searching for for 5 years. However our rental was Dec 26 through Jan 3, there was a lot of snowfall making the driveway a slippery nightmare. If it weren't for the steepness of the driveway, this would be our house rental of choice for the future. Unfortunately we are now back to searching.
