About Annie

Our dog and boy love visiting our cabin as much as we do. We love getting back to our Amish roots and making jam and canning vegetables. This cabin is a quiet place with room to have a large family gathering on the deck. We love spending time with family here, playing games, baking cookies, walking the property with our dog.

Annie purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Annie chose McVeytown

My husband grew up across the mountain in the small town of Belleville, PA. We wanted a place to call our own when we visit family in the area and found an excellent Amish craftsman to build a cabin for us that will be around long after we are gone.

What makes this cabin unique

The huge deck with great views of the mountain really set our place apart from others in the area. The inside and outside custom stone fireplaces are a unique feature as well.

Wonderful country getaway

  • 5 of 5

Could not recommend this cabin more highly! It's hard for pictures to do the interior justice - it really is a stunning and well-built home. We were so excited to find such a lovely property awaiting us after a long drive to our weekend getaway. Annie was extremely prompt, helpful and accommodating to us. We appreciated how homey everything was - appliances, cookware, heating systems all worked superbly. The atmosphere outside is quiet, serene, beautiful. We loved the wrap around porch even when it was a bit cold outside - we can't wait to experience it during the Spring!

Beautiful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was absolutely gorgeous. The wrap around porch was breathtaking with the views. So much was included with stay. We loved playing corn hole on the deck. My kids were ok with not having cell phones to use which is definitely a plus! Such a great place to stay and clean. We will definitely be back but next time we will definitely book a longer stay.

Beautiful and peaceful country setting with great view and wildlife visitors!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place to enjoy the Raystown Lake area. The property is beautiful and peaceful. Within about 25 minute drive to Raystown Lake. The house is equipped with everything you need to enjoy your stay. The wrap around deck has great views of the mountains and the daily wildlife visitors is a treat. The deer are amazing to watch. There is an in indoor and outdoor fireplace which is great for making s'mores and having conversations around and there's plenty of firewood on hand to use. Annie, the owner, called shortly after we arrived to greet us and was always quick to answer any questions we had. The home was very warm and inviting and very clean. The bathroom was neat. We loved the bidet with heated seat! There are also plenty of games to enjoy around the huge dining table in the evenings. There is corn hole on the deck that can be played under the covered area so even if it's raining you can still enjoy being outside. It is away from the hustle and bustle but yet it's just a couple minutes from Route 22. Our dog loved hanging out on the outdoor deck and walking the property. Thank you to the Yoder family for sharing your beautiful vacation home with us. We will definitely be back to stay.

Amazing, beautiful house, property

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at night and found the porch lights on for us. The house was exceptional, cozy and spacious at the same time. The floors were super clean for my baby to crawl around on. The best part was no tv, no devices! We just relaxed and enjoyed each other’s company. We loved the corn toss and the pile of games. The wooden furniture and beautiful quilts really add character. Everything was just perfect, we could not have asked for more.
