Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: The Hoffman family. Brian, April, Kristin, Kari & Kaitlyn. The Swope family Kirby, Tonya, Garrett, Brett & Tabitha are not pictured. Thats how we came up with the name 'Hope House I' the Hoffman & Swope families.

Why the Owner Chose Raystown Lake:
The Hoffmans and the Swopes grew up in the area, and after having families of their own they decided this would be a great way to give back to the community they love and encourage others to come and enjoy all that Raystown has to offer. 'At the HOPE HOUSE circa 1843 if only these walls could talk!' We also enjoy helping folks with there stay by recommending things to do and sites to see. Since we came from the area we have some inside advantages.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location, Location, Location...It is located in Marklesburg population 215. The town will welcome you. You can chat with the neighbors or wave at locals as you walk the streets in the evening. Hope House is midway on the Lake, between Seven Points Marina and Raystown Resort. Trough Creek State Park is just a short drive away. Or you can walk to Aitch Boat Launch/Recreation Area. From water parks in the summer to ski resorts in the winter. Caverns to tour and Penn State football to watch. From Old Steam Railroads to ride and Historic Iron Furnaces to see. There is something for the whole family.
