We came up for a beautiful weekend! From the wide open land, the boats on the lake to the wonderful and beautiful cabin, we had an A plus stay! This is 100 times better than a 5 star hotel.

Best vacation home ever!!!

  • 5 of 5
We ran across this home on VacationRentals.com and thought, "wow....this looks like a great place!". When we arrived and had a chance to take it all in, we were even more impressed. As a vacation rental, this place is set up to provide just about everything you could want. The setting is beautiful, peaceful, relaxing and fun! We had a great time, caught plenty of fish in the lake, including a bass that weighed over 6 lbs.! We couldn't have asked for a better environment for our family and friends and the landlords our very friendly and accomodating. We will definitely be back!

Great place to getaway

  • 5 of 5
The place was all we expected and more! My former college roommates meet up every year and this was by far the best place we've ever rented. Large spacious yard, offered plenty of activities (fire put, horse shoes, fishing, paddle boat). Plenty of covered deck space, and outdoor seating, so even though it rained we were still able to be outside. Inside was extremely clean, plenty of space to sleep and a stocked kitchen with everything we needed. Highly recommended for a private weekend getaway! We will definitely be back next year for our 7th annual trip.

A Little Slice Of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home for 8 days in late August 2014. We would love to write a bad review so that future availability would be guaranteed for our family, but we just can't! This cabin and property far exceeded our expectations. The home is beautiful and extremely clean. It is very well equipped, has comfortable bedding and furniture, and plenty of seating both inside and out. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and very well maintained. Maureen was an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout the entire rental process. We highly recommend this lovely, secluded retreat as a great "get away from it all" vacation spot.

Charming cabin

  • 5 of 5
I rented this property a year ago for the anticipated Cooperstown Hall of Fame induction as we were hoping that a couple former Braves pitchers to be inducted (which they were). While the drive is about forty to fifty minutes away from Cooperstown, it s a gorgeous drive and far away from the congested little town during induction weekend. We enjoyed the amenities and the hostess is very thoughtful and has planned diligently for all age groups and interests. We came away with many memories and were very pleased.

Location

From the Owner

This home was my father's vision. He toiled long and hard at clearing the land and having the cabin loving built in just the right spot for the best views. He lived here for many years enjoying his accomplishment. After his passing we decided to share the beauty of his place with others. We hope that you will enjoy your stay at Ray's Rustic Retreat.

Amenities

From the Owner

If you would like to get away from it all, this is the spot for you. Only 2 miles from town but you feel a world away from the hustle and bustle. So private and yet close to everything you might need. You will never tire of the view from the wrap around porch. Country at its best.
