What makes this cabin unique

This property is well structured with a complete fenced in yard which is idea for children and anyone traveling with a pet. We do offer a pet package $50 flat rate for two dogs which includes Food and water bowls, pet bed, and endless treat jar. We have made exceptions in the past for three dogs however the pet fee then goes to $100. The fee is applied to a special cabin dehairing cleaning, flea and tick cabin bombing and yard clearing. Of course we ask each guest to clean up after their dog. We are animal lovers and pet owners ourselves and know the challenges to traveling with a pet or pets. We also in cases of more than two dogs take an extra security deposit. In over a year renting we have never had one problem with a pet and have returned 100% of security deposits for pet owners.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a wonderful place to getaway! The cabin couldn't have been cozier with its little fireplace and huge fenced-in yard for the doggies. Adorable, lakeside decor and well-equipped with all the essentials. We spent some time on the screened-in front porch just enjoying the scenery. Wendy, the property manager was so pleasant and helpful and Elizabeth, the owner was gracious and flexible when we decided to extend our stay an extra evening. An absolutely serene and relaxing place to escape to!!! Would return in a heartbeat!

The perfect little hide away...

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is exactly how the descriptions and the picture state. It was a great little get away. Close enough to the boat ramp but far enough away where we actually had some great family time. Be warned those with teenagers there is "NO SERVICE" at the cabin at-least with ATT. It was fabulous not to see cell phones in hand 24/7. Elizabeth is great to talk to and will respond quickly with questions. The only surprise we had was the driveway was a bit steep which caught us off guard at first pulling our boat up but plenty of room once you reach the top. We didn't take our dogs this time but it would be the perfect place to rent for dog, the fenced in yard is very nice.

The house was very clean, comfortable and the property was well maintained.

  • 4 of 5

We loved this place! The beds were super comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed, (we cooked several meals during our stay). We were able to relax, watch movies, sit around a campfire well into the night and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. We were just 10 minutes from activities at the lake but far enough away that we could totally unwind being "away from it all" at the end of the day. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone who is looking to enjoy the Raystown Lake area at a reasonable price!

The perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Overall the experience was wonderful. It was the perfect little cabin in the woods for my family and my dogs. We were able to enjoy the outdoors while relaxing by a cozy fire. The lake was minutes away, and we were able to go there without any trouble and enjoy the magnificent views. My dogs enjoyed the open space they had, and were able to explore new scents. Communication with Elizabeth Barber on the cabin was excellent. Elizabeth was very helpful with this experience. The people in the area were also very helpful and we enjoyed our stay a lot. This is definitely one place we would love to visit again. The perfect place to unplug and recharge your batteries.
