Exceeds Expectations

I would like to first say that the pictures displayed do no justice for the actual house. The house is BEAUTIFUL we were a group of 13 and the house was more then enough space for us all. We all agreed to make this an annual thing that we come back yearly to this exact same house… Laurie was so helpful in planning this amazing bday trip.

Exceeding Expectations!

  •  5 of 5

This is the second year my friends and our families have stayed at Exceeding Expectations and we were not disappointed. The house is clean and beautiful. All of the amenities of home, plus space for 6 families (including children), an indoor pool, a hot tub, a pool table, foosball table and arcade games. The kitchen is big enough to cook meals for our 21-person group, and there is plenty of room for socializing, playing games, or relaxing. The property is beautiful (a great place to check out the changing leaves in the Fall) and convenient.

Also, the rental company is very helpful and everyone is friendly and accommodating. The owner is also available to answer questions and she provides very detailed information about things to do / see and what you need to bring.

Wonderful experience. Thank you for exceeding our expectations yet again. We will be back!

Bachelor Party Perfection

  •  5 of 5

Laurie’s house, Exceeding Expectations, is perfect for any vacation big or small. The house has recently been beautifully renovated and sports an amazing chef’s kitchen, 3 zone climate control, more bathrooms than you will ever need, and an amazing indoor pool that can be used year round. The house is convenient to everything Deep Creek has to offer; boating, hiking, skiing, and plenty of restaurants and shops. Laurie was responsive prior to arriving to my vacation and offered plenty of ideas on what to do around town. I will definitely be booking this home again in the near future. Thanks!!!

Enjoyed Ourselves Thoroughly

Always good to hear from you . . . I apologize for not writing sooner.

Exceeding Expectations is a beautiful place . . . your home fit our needs well . . . everyone found a place to rest their head. We loved the area . . . never had an issue with what to do . . . it is truly a beautiful place in a wondrous area.

Our oldest son built a special trailer for all of his family’s stuff which we all used . . . canoe, kayaks, paddle boards, bikes . . . and all. Because of the difficulty getting both the trailer and the stuff unloaded each day, we wound up going to the state park to unload, play and load again. There were no complaints . . . the eleven grandchildren love the water . . .

We thank you so much for introducing us to the area . . . and your kindness . . . and your professional attitude. We went to many of the places you listed . . . and we did find a Super Walmart conveniently in Oakland to buy all of the groceries to feed the nineteen of us.

We appreciate all that you did to make this summer vacation a memorable one.
