Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My wife and I grew up in the North East part of Pennsylvania. After spending a few years in the Washington DC area during my wifes Graduate Schooling, we decided to relocate closer to where we grew up and chose Hershey, PA as our place to call home. We have 1 son and 1 daughter, both under age 4. We enjoy spending time at the Chalet, boating, relaxing, and spending time with our children and family.

Why the Owner Chose Raystown Lake:
The property was the perfect combination of size (6 acres), privacy, and location. Only 3 miles from Raystown Lake and 35 minutes from State College (as we are both Alumni of Penn State), along with it being only 100 miles from Hershey gave us the perfect excuse to have a second home that offered so much convenience for our activities outside of work.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
The home boasts SPRAWLING size (3700 sq foot) privacy, a 1200 sq foot wrap around covered porch, along with a fire pit, and spaciousness everywhere you turn. As you sit on the porch in the evenings, with the lights turned down low on the porch, it doesnt get much better than seeing the lightning bugs flash in the woods while enjoying a glass of wine with good conversation between family and friends.
