About Marisa- Manager

Joy & Chris Daniels- Owners of A Mountaintop Retreat!

Marisa- Manager purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Marisa- Manager chose Raystown Lake

My husband and I live a hectic lifestyle, but have always enjoyed a quiet retreat by the water as a sanctuary from the business of everyday life. We were fortunate to have the opportunity to purchase this beautiful property in 2006 and have been stealing time away whenever possible since! We are thrilled to be able to offer this retreat to family, friends, church members and guests so that they can enjoy the privacy and tranquility of our property while a short walk/drive away from all the excitement of Raystown Lake!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed our stay at the cabin on Trout Lane. It was spacious and clean and we were all very impressed. Some of us really missed our cell phone and 3G connections, but the atmosphere was worth the sacrifice! We will definitely be back around the same time next year.



Thank you very much!

Fabulous Vacation

  • 5 of 5
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!!

Absolutely Perfect !

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 3 of 5
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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are continuously updating and have some schedule this off season, based on traveler reviews; including the 2nd bath (which we do not advertise as a full bath because of its use doubling as a utility room, although it is functional) so we appreciate all of your input.

In addition, we did include much of the information above, regarding the grill, all linens, pet friendly property, etc. both on our sites and in the 8 pages of rental information provided, because we do want our renters to make an informed decision. I have allergies and get allergies shots regularly and have no difficulties at the property so we are sorry that you had a different experience. Linens are not typically provided at most VRBO properties, unless otherwise stated including, tea or dish towels.

We recently stayed at a high end property in the outer banks and had to bring, purchase these items there as well.

I will review all of our documents to make sure this information is clearly stated to avoid any future miscommunications. Again, thank you for your stay and input so that we can continuously improve.

GREAT would love to come back

  • 5 of 5
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!

  • 5 of 5
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!
