About the property

2 Bedrooms, Loft, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 7 (8 w/children); WiFi

Come visit the lake and enjoy the comfort of our cabin. On a beautiful wooded peninsula, our lake access cabin is an easy short walk down a country lane to a reserved boat slip and is convenient to all the lake activities yet not in town for the summer traffic to be a bother. Stay toasty warm in the winter with our beautiful stone fireplace. When its hot in the summer, we have AC and ceiling fans for your comfort. Bring your boat, your jet ski or canoe and dock them during your stay at no extra charge. You will not have to pull your boat in and out daily like many other locations. A perfect spot to jump into the lake or bring your chairs and sun on the dock. Enjoy your morning coffee on the front porch rocker or the back porch looking down towards the lake. You'll love the new hot tub any time of day, but especially after skiing and hiking! Few cars come by so a great place for kids and pets to run around and play. A large stone fireplace warms the living area and the kids can play upstairs in the loft while the adults enjoy the large steamy hot tub on the back deck or roast marshmallows over the fire pit. The yard is large, so bring your games and enjoy! Our cabin is very cozy, clean and very comfortable and has everything you need to have a relaxing and fun getaway!

Why Doris chose Swanton

We built this cabin for our family. We've been transferred out of state so we rent it, but still try to visit a few times a year. We are not in a rental pool and we do not own any other homes around the lake. We have a great cleaning & maintenance crew that keeps the place very clean and in good shape for our guests.

What makes this cabin unique

Dedicated dock slip, so you will not have to pull your boat in and out daily. Just drop it off at our dock and leave it till you are ready to go. Quiet street, more golf carts than cars!

Quiet, clean cabin situated in small deep creek neighborhood. Minutes fro food, activities and shops

  • 5 of 5

When my husband and I were originally looking for a place to stay for our 10th wedding anniversary, one of the main requirements be that the location be private. Initially, we were concerned about the proximity of other properties to this location, fearing that privacy would be lacking. However, our stay was quiet and cozy for the entire weekend. The house was clean and well maintained and it was truly a joy staying here. The hot tub is maintenanced regularly (someone had been out to check it before we checked in) and was awesome!! Overall, a great experience!!

Cutest little place on the lake

  • 5 of 5

If you are ok with a quick 5 minute walk down to the private dock, it is the best and cutest cabin on the lake. Very easy to get into and very clean when we entered for the first time. Loved the hot tub after a long fun day on the lake! Only thing we had to do was go buy more toilet paper and paper towels which was a quick trip to Arrowhead Market. Wish we had our own place like this one. We will likely be back! :)

The little things

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes it's all the little things that really make vacation feel like vacation. Here's what we loved about this place:

-Fluffy, not scratchy, towels

-Each seat in the hot tub has a different jet pattern

-Solid, nice iron patio furniture

-The cute tune the washer plays when it starts and stops

-Super clean fridge

-Classic log cabin with a waving American flag out front

-Great mattress in the master bedroom

-Quick responses & tips from the owner make you feel like you're in a friend's home, not a rental property

-Loft area = kids clubhouse

-Extra large coffee cups

-Lots of towels, pillows and blankets

-Large kitchen island

-The hills on the road to the cabin that make your belly flip (instant giggles from our boys)

-Pitch black darkness and silence at night.

We had a great time at this cabin. Very family-friendly and close to everything. I recommend this to couples, families and four legged friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a nice review Ashley! We pride ourselves on the upkeep of the cabin and the little things I know make our guests more comfortable. I'm very glad you liked it. Your comment on the hills reminded me of when our boys were small and we'd speed up just a bit just so they could get that extra good 'belly flip'! Thanks again for being our guest. Please come back again soon!

The property was comfortable and clean.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this comfy, clean, and beautiful little cabin. It was a perfect size for our girls weekend getaway. Everything worked well and we loved the hot tub. Wish it was closer to the water, but we had a good time. The instructions about what to do with towels seemed unclear. Thanks for a great getaway.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. Didn't have to do anything with the towels, that's why there was nothing about it in the house book :-). Thanks again for being our guest. Doris

A clean, cozy and comfortable lake access cabin with two comfortable queen beds and bunks/futon in the loft, two bathrooms, gas grill and eight person steamy, clean hot tub, is open and spacious. Air Conditioning for the hot days and ceiling fans for comfortable cool evenings. Located on a nicely wooded lot with lake access on Harvey Peninsula, our cabin is great for a family or small group of friends to enjoy a retreat. A short walk to our dock slip reserved for you boat or a couple jet skiis, the slip is also a great place to just jump in and take a swim or bring your chair and relax in the sun. Plenty of lake activities all summer long, and a great place to see the leaves change in the fall. Enjoy hiking, white water rafting, swimming, boating, water slides, hunting, fishing, go carts, arcades, state parks and so much more. You will never want to leave! Only a few hours from Baltimore, Washington, Pittsburgh and close to Morgantown, our cabin is great for a weekend get away or a relaxing way to get away from the stress for a week. Our cabin is not big and fancy, but its comfortable and will make you feel right at home.

Some fun activities around the lake:

ASCI White Water Course






The Honi Honi Bar
