Raystown Lake house description
Wildwood Lodge owners, Pam & Bob Wild, have been in the vacation home rental business since 2005. They purchased the Lodge in Dec. 2012 and spent 3 months renovating the home. The Lodge is their 3rd vacation rental property, all of which are within walking distance of each other. All homes, Wildwood Chalet, Cottage and Lodge are rustically beautiful and immaculately clean. (www.wildlodge.net)
The Lodge is nestled in a 3 acre wooded lot, offering a peaceful retreat yet 10 minutes from Raystown Lake and 5 minutes from Allegrippis Trails which is ranked among the top 5 trial systems in the nation for mountain biking. It's also awesome for hiking. We're only 10 minutes from downtown Huntingdon for dining & shopping.
This house offers it's own eclectic charm, furnished with Amish made hickory tables, chairs, rockers, pine log & hickory headboards, as well as lovely leather furniture. The new kitchen has maple cabinets and granite counter tops. A beautiful knotty pine cathedral ceiling covers the entire great room. The walls are adorned with rustic artwork and artifacts of days gone by.....sure to spark interest and conversation ! The kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly need.
Wildwood Lodge features 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths, a great room with a dining area that includes a gorgeous hickory table, rec. room with rustic bar, large deck, patio off the rec room and cozy firepit area.
The Lodge provides all the creature comforts you could hope for, including expanded cable TV, free internet, free local/long distance phone service, gas grill, movies and much more. For those families with small children don't take up space in your vehicles for a pack and play, baby gate and highchair, they will be provided. There will also be a plastic kiddie pool, nothing like a pool with a little water to keep toddlers occupied for hours.
The house can comfortably sleep 13 and perhaps a couple more for those who want to bring a cot or air mattress. Guests may bring their own sheets or they can be provided for an additional fee. Comforters, blankets and pillows are provided. Cleaning fee is included in the rental rate.
Wildwood Lodge will enable you to sit back, relax and enjoy the sounds of nature, moonlit evenings by the fire pit or fill your Summer days with fishing, boating, hiking and water activities on Raystown Lake, the Crown Jewel of Central Pa. Fall and Winter offers opportunities for hunting, downhill skiing, cross country skiing, and trips to 'Happy Valley' to enjoy Penn State Nittany Lion football.

Pam does not disappoint
Pam does not disappoint
We had 16 guests. The house was roomy and very clean. The surroundings are beautiful with the peace and quiet that you want in this environment. The house has all of the conveniences needed to cook and entertain. The kitchen is well appointed and the bedrooms are good sized. We used the grill and fire pit with no issues. When renting houses, you are usually given the barest of interiors but Pam has taken great care to create a lodge decor and aesthetic. We were all impressed and excited about our stay it Wildwood Lodge.

We spent the weekend at the Lodge for my sisters bachelorette party. There were 12 of us and we fit very comfortably in this huge house! The furnishings were beautiful and there was plenty of space inside and outside. The outdoor fire pit area was a hit. The owner was very friendly helpful with recommendations and answering any questions. I have rented many properties from vrbo and this was the only one where there were absolutely no issues or surprises! I would highly recommend this rental!

This rental is absolutely beautiful!! The owners have done a wonderful renovation job!! We rented the lodge for our daughters' PSU Graduation weekend and could not have enjoyed ourselves more! VERY clean, beautifully decorated, just as described and pictured, no surprises!! Everything was all ready there for our use, just had to bring the eats!! I would highly recommend this rental to anyone. It has become my new favorite relaxation spot and we plan to return again (and again) in the future. Pam assured me when I booked it, sight unseen, that Iwould not be disappointed, and she was correct!! Nice location and within driving distance of anything you need or want to do!! Be sure to book your stay here soon!

About the owner: Owners Pam and Bob Wild live in State College, Pa. but call the Raystown Lake area their home away from home. The lake as been apart of Pam's life for 46 years. Her husband Bob is quite the boating enthusiast and fell in love with the lake as well. It is a wonderful place to create great memories with friends and family. Their two grown children and now 3 granddaughters also LOVE their time at the family cabin and lake. The Wilds make a great team in that they work together to make sure the houses are well maintained and in top working order. Pam was in the Hotel/Restaurant industry for 25 years prior to starting a vacation home rental business. She knows what it takes to make her guests happy. You will appreciate her friendly and PROMPT replies to all rental inquiries and questions.
Why the Owner Chose Raystown Lake:
The Lodge is one of their three vacation rental properties, all of which are within walking distance of each other. All homes, Wildwood Chalet, Cottage and Lodge are rustically beautiful and immaculately clean. The perfect place to fill your days with activities or better yet .... relax and do nothing at all ! We do not utilize the availability calendar because we have other properties. Sometimes we can direct guests to one of our other places, Wildwood Chalet or Cottage if the Lodge is booked. OPEN YEAR ROUND !
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Pam and Bob spend a great deal of time at their personal cottage which is close to their rentals. Their daughter and family live only a few minutes away as well. There is always someone available should guests have a problem or need assistance.
