Why Sandra Meyers chose Hesston

I fell in love with Raystown Lake while camping and boating there. It's absolutely beautiful. I also wanted a log home that was private and secluded within a few miles of the lake.

What makes this house unique

Even though the Mountain Rendezvous is very close to Raystown Lake and boat launches, it is extremely quite and peaceful.

Privacy with a view

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our mountainbike get away. The parquay floors were beautiful and we loved the private yet close to Huntington and the bike trails location. We will certainly be back.....smores by the campfire were a nice end to our day. Thank you Sandy.

Enjoyed this home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this mountain cabin. We had ample space and enjoyed the decor. If you are hauling a boat to the cabin, be aware that the road to the cabin is a stone road with a steep incline. We were able to haul our 21-foot boat to the cabin but needed to be attentive to the narrow road. It was worth the effort.

Owner's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! I do have a boat parking location near 7 points for renters hauling boats. Sorry, I didn't know you were bringing a boat. I'll make sure to update my profile with that information.
