    Very nice place! Fit my whole family! Everything there! Not far at all from Raystown resort! Only issue was a musty smell in cabin. Could use a good dehumidifier to help! Had a fire pit which was awesome for mountain pies and s’mores! Was there for my daughter’s wedding! Lots of room if you have a bunch of people with you! Close to the lake! Beautiful setting!

    The house was nice but we found crumbs from chips in the bed and furniture was dusty. Getting in and out of one of the bedrooms was a little inconvenient. You had to either go outside and back in through another door or walk through another bedroom. Overall, it wasn't bad.

    We had a very quiet and relaxing stay at this mountain retreat. The house had all the required amenities as listed. We appreciated receiving ahead of time a list of kitchen supplies, local grocery stores, restaurants, precise directions to the house as well as specific house information. We reached out to the property manager with a question and our request was taken care of right away. This house was also located only a few miles from the lake which was delightful as well.

    Definitely quiet and clean. There are some maintenance items (broken cabinets, broken furniture drawers, probably due for newer pots and pans, may even want to consider a new ranger on-some of the eyes don’t heat as welll as they should)) that definitely need to be done but otherwise it really was clean. Cell service was non-existent and the internet is not overly strong. It’s to be expected because of location. I just wouldn’t expect to stream a lot. The beds were actually very comfy so I think mattresses must have been updated. It is convenient to Raystown and Trough creek which was wonderful. The kid’s loved being in the downstairs area. I would also suggest updating the toys and toy storage if that’s an amenity. The storage containers were coming apart. No animal sightings but it was quiet and very peaceful! Communication was good with the property manager when we needed it. Although she wasn’t keen on email-cell phones don’t work and no local calls so I am not sure how else we were to communicate-but she responded in a timely manner either way!

    My family and I had a wonderful time the cabin getaway was just what we needed.

    Really enjoyed this cabin and the location. There was plenty of space for 6 adults to stay. Liked having two full bathrooms and a bed for each. It is a cabin, so of course it is rustic, but it was in really good shape. While we had a few hiccups with the pellet stove, the property manager and handyman were very responsive and helped within 30 minutes on a Sunday morning. The location was perfect for us, too, as we were looking for hunting and fishing spots around Lake Raystown. As other reviews noted - don't forget trash bags, toilet paper, paper towels, etc. The rest of the supplies in the kitchen were perfect. Didn't feel like we were missing anything. Great stay. Thanks!

    The cabin was nice and very peaceful. These are the reasons that I did not give it a 5 star. The basement has damp issues. There are multiple dry moisture buckets all around the basement to try to control the dampness.The door that you enter with the lock box for the key had a very noticeable musty smell. My daughter has asthma and could not take the smell therefore could not sleep in the bedrooms in the basement. Bring own pots & pans trust me. The silverware drawer & toaster was full of little particles and needs to be cleaned. I believe they did clean before we arrived but still seen areas that needed cleaning. Grill outside was a joke and not usable. The ac could not keep up with the heat and only satisfied the area in front of it. No ac in the bedrooms!!! Now the Good Stuff. It was really cozy and neatly decorated. There was charcoal for the grill if you want to call it a grill. But the manager did say one was order just not in time for us. There was enough wood for a fire. I would skip a fire and enjoy the stars. INCREDIBLE ON A CLEAR NIGHT :)

    Relax with a capital R!

    This was our second stay at this property. It is quiet, peaceful , and spacious. About a 20 minute drive to Raystown lake. Ten minutes to Tough Creek state park. Lower bathroom is utilitarian but very functional. Cabin is showing some age spots - but so am I. Firewood is provided but: bring your own kindling and start up wood. Or bring a maul to split some of the large pieces. Internet is slow and streaming is almost impossible. (But they state that in the info for the cabin - so believe it) . There are games, books, DVD's, puzzles for rainy days. Charcoal grilling is possible but inconvenient. Refer may be too small for more than 6 or 7 guests. You can walk out the door and into the forest. There is wildlife around . Overall this cabin works well .

    Overall good experience. Great location. View in the morning, overlooking the deck from the dining room is awesome. House needs thorough cleaning. Electrical appears to be piggybacked. Turning on microwave trips upstairs kerosene furnace along with heaters used in downstairs bedrooms. Literature provided stated that There is plenty of wood both in the house and outside of the house. Not entirely accurate. Plenty of wood outside. None inside. If it's raining and/or cold, best advise is to bring some dry wood to start the downstairs furnace.

    This lovely cabin had a lot of character and space. It was perfect for our two families (4 adults, 3 kids). There were endless beds, lots of games and toys, a great selection of dishes and cookware, an updated kitchen, a fire pit, a beautiful view, and just a two minute drive to hiking trails and the lake. It was a little challenging having no cell service, but we were able to connect to the wifi with no difficulty which allowed us to message our family and house-sitters (via iMessage only). I did give this cabin only 4 stars as there was a long list of items we had to bring ourselves (sheets, towels, toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, etc.) and because of the isolated location it wasn't easy to run to a store and get more of something, but the owner was very good about providing lots of information to prepare us for what we needed to bring and places to shop, eat, and visit. If you are looking for a rustic place to get away from noise, email, and internet, and just want to relax and enjoy peace and nature, then this is the perfect cabin for you.

    Backed up against Trough Creek State Park - the place provided an incredibly relaxing experience. Sitting on the deck in the early morning or around the fire pit in the evening you can really disconnect. We used the place for a small family reunion this summer. Trough Creek State Park is 15 minutes away and provides great fishing, hiking and picnicking. Tatman Run is about 20 minutes away and provides a small beach area for swimming. While you could sleep 10, 7-8 is probably the more ideal. The two downstairs bedrooms are a bit awkwardly laid out. The place could use a a little TLC, but it was comfortable and nicely decorated with nearly all the amenities you would want.

Only complaint is when we were there we tried connecting to the WiFi and it said we were connected but there was no internet access so we couldn't check emails and things like that which is why I unfortunately had to give it a 4 out of 5.

    This was our first time using vrbo so I didn't know what to expect. The cabin was as advertised. It was spacious, comfortable, and cozy. The upstairs is large and has a very good heater that quickly heats that floor. The downstairs is cold, and as long as you know how to use a wood stove it warms up quickly. If you don't know how to use a wood stove, instructions are in the initial paperwork and I suggest, as the initial paperwork says, get starter logs to get it started. The rest of the instructions given covered all of our other questions. I had no surprises. Over all we loved it, it was quiet, private, and exactly what we needed. We appreciated the pictures, info, and honest reviews. If you liked what you read and saw there, you will love this place.

    The cabin was lovely and as described. Pros: the location is private and backs up to forest. There is truly the feeling of getting away. The only con is simply that without lighting the wood stove downstairs it was too cold for anyone to stay down there. We tried to follow the instructions but the wood stove only produced smoke. The upstairs has two heaters and they do a great job of keeping the second floor warm and cozy. I’d highly recommend this location for anyone who wants to get away, or in our case, any hunters or outdoorsmen/women. We loved our stay!

    Loved the location of this little cabin. Tucked back into the woods, quite private (although there are neighbors relatively nearby). The kitchen was adequate, although I really wish there was a dishwasher! Doing dishes by hand on vacation for a large group is a lot! The beds and furniture were pretty comfortable, although the mattresses were a bit saggy. We really enjoyed the fire pit! The one major drawback were the flies. I'm not sure what happened with this property before we got there, but there were at least 100 flies buzzing around when we arrived. We used a vacuum to suck them up off the windows - there were that many! We were killing flies all weekend, but they just kept coming. Perhaps have the cleaning company take a closer look?

    This cabin was absolutely perfect and definitely has more than enough room to sleep a large family! They definitely maximize the use of space and the decorating was charming. The furniture is all very comfortable and there was no complaints about the beds. There is a concrete charcoal grill similar to those that are found at state parks near the fire pit and also a small portable charcoal grill on the upper deck. Both had fairly small grill surfaces but we were able to accommodate that. The yard was great for our kids and boxer to run and play. We had a few visits from a beautiful black bear that came through the woods behind the garage but he left fairly easily, the kids named him Boo Boo Bear! The beach is no more than 4 or 5 minutes away and is small and secluded but still got a few waves from boats going by and had a great playground as well. We also visited the waterpark that was about a minute further than the beach. About six miles away is a general store with pizza & putt-putt and a small ice cream shop that also has hot foods as well. The only thing we would have changed was to have more lights outside specifically on the steps as there was not much light that hit them after dark and lights on the garage would have been great as well. We only stayed the weekend this year but have already asked to reserve for a week next year and we cant wait to return to our happy place in the mountains!!

    My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the retreat for a long weekend at the end of September. We were thoroughly impressed by the location of the property and all of the amenities that the retreat had to offer. We found the interior of the retreat to be cozy, inviting, and comfortable. We spent the days exploring the beauty that surrounds the lake and the evenings relaxing by the fire. Our only complaint is that our time at the retreat went by so fast! We are already looking at dates to book the retreat next Fall. We highly recommend this property to anyone that is looking to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature!!

    Great location/needs some improvements

    This is a cabin. It is in a great spot, barring the neighbors playing their radio. We saw a bear in the yard in the evening one night. A couple tips that would have my stay better. There is no gas grill. Bring charcoal. Bring ALL linens I including a tea towel. Bring 2 tablecloths , one for in the house because the table's varnish is sticky and 1 for the outside picnic table. Bring chairs for outside deck!!! There is one broken glider that seats 2. There is no dishwasher. I felt like I had to rewash/boil everything because there have been dozens of renters. Do not come if you have allergies. There are at least a dozen artificial flower arrangements covered in dust and dirt. The beds were comfortable. 2 rooms downstairs, one without a window. Basically 1 usable bathroom. Washer and dryer available. There is a small ac unit in the living room that cooled things off but was super noisy and blew on you. I would have liked this property better if I would have come prepared or could have made a more informed decision about renting this place. With some small upgrades, repairs and cleaning, this place would have been awesome.

    GREAT would love to come back

    We all had a GREAT time. The retreat was BEAUTIFUL. A home away from home but only better no cell phones, no interenet & no kids. What more could u ask for. Maybe snow. We would love to come back & maybe stay longer. The time went by so fast. The kitchen had everything we needed & there was always enough hot water for showers & there was 10 of us. I would recommend the retreat to anyone. Very clean & no signs of any critters. Thats a BIG plus. I recieved my security deposit with in a week after we got home. Another BIG plus. This was our first time there and it was a GREAT first impression. Thank you so much for allowing us to rent the Retreat, The Groves, Dunlaps, Taylors & the Heffners.

    Wonderful Fall Weekend!

    Hi Liz, My family and I just returned from Raystown and our 3 day weekend at the house. It was so nice and cozy. There were 4 adults and 1 13 year old and we had more than enough room to spread out and have fun. The area is incredible and we enjoyed the 90 minute boat tour of the lake on Sat. The bedrooms were well appointed and extremely comfortable. We made apple dumplings on Sat. evening and found everything that we needed! Our 85 year old mother came along and she didn't want to leave! She had a wonderful time there and was very comfortable. Thank you once again and we will be back! The Starrs and Witmans
