Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great. It was like a home away from home. We had one tiny issue with the air conditioning leaking which was addressed immediately. I would definitely recommend staying here if your headed to the Raystown Lake area. Thank you for the hospitality.

Fine stay, unsatisfying end

  • 2 of 5

The property was nice with a lot of amenities. It was clean and nice and isolated. The deck was relaxing and the bedrooms accommodated our party nicely. Plenty of chairs and mountain pie makers for nights by the fire ring.

If you have your own boat and can launch at Shy Beaver that's a much better option for this rental location than if you have to go up to 7 Points.

We took good care of the place and expected to get the full deposit back, but we ended up paying $150 because we left lights on and didn't strip the beds. Seemed like a steep price to pay and we will not book this place for our stay next year.

Great house for the family get-away - Clean and roomy

  • 5 of 5

Our family needs a large house to all gather in one place and this one worked great for us, including our 4 young grandchildren. The place was every bit as nice as the listing described. We liked the large deck with two picnic tables. Nice gas grill for cooking; modern and clean kitchen. Everything worked and the check-in and check-out were easy. It will certainly be on our list for future events, too! Location also worked well for us. Nicely isolated property, but grocery store in Saxton is conveniently close-by; Raystown Resort area is a drive, but an easy trip.

The Best of Everything...

  • 5 of 5

Unfinished Business has everything you could want in a Raystown vacation spot. Its only a few minutes to the lake or town but the cabin is totally secluded and so peaceful. Highlights for the group were the spacious deck, professional ping pong table and huge open fire pit, not to mention wifi, cable, a whirlpool and all the amenities of home. Great parking and plenty of room and easy access for the boat are a huge plus. A great place to vacation!
