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

  • 5 of 5


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.

Exceeding Expectations definitely lives up to its name

  • 5 of 5

Good old Mother Nature was sending us her April showers limiting our outdoor activities however your home provided us with so much to do - we never really needed to step outside.

The kitchen was great. The two refrigerators were full and we prepared and shared some awesome and memorable meals made better by your oversized dining table allowing us to eat together - reminiscing for hours about the decades of memories we have been blessed to share as parents, children, cousins and in-laws.

Our competitive and coaching side came out - as we all used the pool table and foosball table for hours of laughs and competitive fun. At the end of our days we played a few rounds of volley ball in the swimming pool and then relaxed in the hot tub.

Thank you on behalf of our entire family for a wonderful weekend and new memories added to the archives of our life’s journey. To quote one of the youngest cousins, “We had a blast!”

As we said our goodbyes on Sunday morning everyone was saying, (We should do this again same place same time next year.” My husband and I are thinking about it - I may be calling to book again for April 2017.

Thanks for the memories.

Exceeded All Expectations

  • 5 of 5

It has been almost a month since my family reunion event at the Exceeding Expectations home (yes, I'm just writing the review but for good reason) and we have plans to go back for future family events. I started writing this review at least 3 times and felt the words were not eloquent enough to give the home its total praise!

As a retired member of the US Military, father of 4 with 1 on the way, and full-time business life definitely has its stressful moments. Coordinating family reunions has never been on my "things-to-do" list. Laurie took all of the stress out of booking our event, she seemed to genuinely care about the needs of every member of our family. An absolute great person and I am definitely looking forward to doing business with her in the future.

Now to the good stuff! This home absolutely has it all! Anyone looking to spoil those that deserve now! Do Not Wait! Thanks in large to support from Laurie (the home owner), we were able to plan events and activities prior to arrival.

1. The initial response to walking into the home-breathtaking. The house has 4 levels so pace yourself as you initially walk onto the property. Every bedroom in the home is a huge "master" bedroom with its own bathroom!

2. We'd planned on eating at different restaurants doing our stay, until we saw the kitchen. The kitchen has 2 of everything, which makes cooking meals for a group of 16 much easier than we originally anticipated. We ended up cooking or grilling at home every night of our stay.The dining room table is HUGE and perfect for great conversation and meals; we also used it for game night events

3.This home is so accommodating that it can be very easy to just stay inside and make up reasons not to leave the "castle" or "palace" as the kids call it. My wife and mother-in-law both suffer from allergies so finding a home this elaborate that is both pet and smoke-free was major!

4. The indoor pool is where the teens and kids spent most of their time. I love that the windows in the pool area open to allow fresh air from outside. The pool tech really does come to the house everyday to ensure both the pool and hot-tub are functioning properly, awesome

5. Fast, reliable WiFi. Usually this would be higher on the list but the kids enjoyed the time with the family so much that phones and tablets were rarely used. I used it to conduct a few business transactions and it performed greatly

The home definitely Exceeded all Expectations
