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. Open floor plan, well equipped kitchen with new stainless appliances. 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 steamy, sparkling clean 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 hot tub on the back deck or watch a movie on our 50" TV. 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, well stocked

  • 5 of 5

Great family get away. 7 + a dog for a Christmas vacstion. The cabin is very clean and easily slept all of us. Owner is super responsive to any questions or issues, but most things can be answered in the instruction book at the cabin. Cabinets are full of cooking pots, pans and utensils. Just bring your own food and coffee (pot and filters there). Enjoyed the hot tub, walks around the peninsula and family games/puzzles. There is a Walmart in Oakland for any forgotten items or last minute needs. Overall positive experience.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this cabin. It was extremely clean and the hot tub is well-maintained and brand new. The convenience of a washer/dryer and dishwasher in the cabin allowed us to spend more time with our family. The beds are comfortable and the showers are large and roomy! There is even a place to have a fire pit in the large back yard. We will return here next year! Thank you, Doris!

Great Cabin!

  • 4 of 5

We used the cabin for a mini lake vacation. Also an excellent alternative to paying for an overpriced hotel room for WVU Graduation.

Wonderful, quiet neighborhood. Very clean and well equipped. Super responsive owner who answered all my questions prior to the trip!

Dock slip
Car: necessary

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



Zip Lining Wisp Resort
