Welcome to the Cabin on top of Cedar! It is our pleasure to have you as our guest! Wonder Lake is approximately 820 acres and was originally dammed in 1929 and was the largest manmade lake for about 10 years, surpassed with the completion of the Hoover dam and the creation of Lake Meade. The lake is approximately a half block to the west, at the bottom of the hill; turn left as you walk out of the gate. The private beach, “Harvey Barton Park”, is a block and a half south, so just make another left turn at the bottom of the hill. Fishing, swimming, playground and boating are here. Should you be at the beach and someone asks where you live, just let them know you are staying in Ray’s Cabin as a guest. The beach is a private beach and, as we have been told, the nicest beach around.

Quiet & relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this cute cabin justice! It's bigger than it looks. Decorated like a hunting lodge with an adorable quaint kitchen. My dog enjoyed the large fenced yard & the dog decor on the screened porch. The owner responds quickly to communications. We enjoyed our stay!

incredible honestly one of the coolest places to have fun

  • 5 of 5

At first I thought the cabin was small from the photos. When I got there it was unbelievable , there is so many things around to do, a lot of space inside the cabin then I could imagine. Loads of places to sleep super big yard to enjoy while having a party. Lake is beautiful with litterly a boat rental 3 blocks away. When you get to the porch it's like my man cave with ththe Chicago Bears expect it's hunting instead of football. Place is awesome I would and am going to rent it out again. Owners are great aswell no coming in to check on you everything you ask them via email is responded to you within minutes . I respect the owners a lot thanks for letting me stay at you cabin loved every second of it. Fishing , swimming , bbq , yard to play games . Once again incredible cabin thanks so much. Would strongly recommend to rent when availble .
