The Railey family legacy and history of Deep Creek Lake go almost hand in hand – from small stone cottages on the shores of the lake to the largest and most productive real estate company in the area. The Railey family pioneered using personal vacation homes as vacation rentals at Deep Creek Lake – forming Railey Mountain Lake Vacations 36 years ago. The concept of renting your home to guests has exploded across the country and even the world.

Railey Realty has always worked alongside Railey Mountain Lake Vacations to support the cycle of real estate and vacation rentals. Providing the best of both services allowed each company to grow and succeed. In 2009, the owners of Railey Realty made the strategic decision to open their own vacation rental company, forming Deep Creek Lodging Company.


We’re very excited to announce that the Railey family is coming back together in 2018! Railey Realty’s Deep Creek Lodging Company and Railey Mountain Lake Vacations have merged to create the largest vacation rental company at Deep Creek Lake, Railey Vacations! The real estate sales company, Railey Realty, remains separately owned.


If you are a Deep Creek Lodging homeowner, you will greatly benefit from the 36 years of local repeat renters, the large in-house support personnel, and the company expertise found at RMLV. All of the Deep Creek Lodging staff that you have worked so closely alongside has all been offered employment with Railey Vacations. Please feel free to reach out to our office or your owner representative for more information.

If you are a Railey Mountain Lake Vacations homeowner, your financial partners now include the area’s largest and most productive real estate company. As before, the entire management team at RMLV is committed to providing you with the service and professionalism you have come to know and expect.

If you are a guest or returning customer, your current reservations and any new reservations made this summer will remain the same. Operations for both companies will continue separately throughout the summer. You can still make your reservations for Deep Creek Lodging Company on our website, www.deepcreeklodging.com, as you normally would. In the fall, we will be transitioning our online reservations to www.deepcreek.com. Renters arriving in the fall and beyond will be given updated instructions for check-in and check-out procedures closer to their stay.


Both homeowners and guests can rest assured that Railey Vacations will maintain the 5-star customer service and vacation experience you have come to expect. We will be sharing best practices across both companies to better support your financial goals. Our management team and support staff are committed to our shared growth and success.

See you at the lake!
