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!

Great escape

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was extremely clean, as other reviewers have indicated. The kitchen was well stocked and met all of our needs for cooking a Thanksgiving meal. The fenced yard is a bonus and made the area surrounding the cabin a great place for our dog to roam and stay safe during hunting season.

We were able to use our Verizon-serviced phones as hot spots for internet access and were able to stream some football games, although at times the streaming left a little to be desired. There is a great DVD selection and some games if you need additional indoor activities.

It is an easy drive to Raystown Lake, Altoona, Hollidaysburg, and other cool towns.

Adorable and cozy cabin! Perfect for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a girls weekend trip and it was perfect! The cabin was very cozy and had everything we needed! We loved sitting outside in the screened in porch to drink our morning coffee! This would be a perfect rental if you have a dog because the property was fenced around the cabin. We will definitely be renting this again for our yearly getaway!

Cozy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our short stay at the cabin for our friends wedding weekend. It's tucked back in the woods, and has everything you need for amenities, a fully stocked kitchen and cozy gas fireplace. We loved running out to Happy Hollow Restaurant for a local breakfast and driving the back roads checking out the fall colors in the area.

the cottage was pristine, and spotless, total bliss!

  • 5 of 5

the appointments in the cottage could not have been nicer. beautifully decorated with a nautical theme.

although we didn't do much cooking, we could have! the kitchen had everything one could possibly need to prepare a feast.

wonderful large walk-in shower.

we brought our own books, however our hosts thoughtfully provided us with plenty of enticing books of their own.

last but not least, our dog was provided with amenities of his own. he gives the vacation 5 woofs!

as do we.
