Why Sandra Meyers chose Allegheny Mountains & Her Valleys

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.

Super clean and off the beaten path. Very quiet and relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

I'd go back again. Very quiet and relaxing. Well maintained and close to the mountain biking trails. The driveway was challenging for my minivan pulling a trailer but I did make it up. A very nice place.

Great Getaway Place in the Mountains!

  • 5 of 5

On a weekend where it was consistently hotter than 90 degrees, the air conditioning units worked wonderfully to keep the cabin nice and cool. Was very impressed with all of the amenities available at Mountain Rendezvous. The outdoor space is great and very secluded. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get away from everyday hustle and bustle for a few days. Great place to unwind!

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Mountain Rendezvous! It was in a nice location to access the lake and was great to be far away from neighbors! The drive to the home is tricky. It would've been nice to have directions sent before our stay, but we managed. The property is well maintained and has wonderful character! Thank you for a great vacation home!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at the Mountain Rendezvous and hope you come back again. Regarding the directions, I attached a flyer with the initial inquiry which contained the directions and a reminder to bring the flyer with you. Maybe you didn't receive the attachments along with the photo and parking location for the boat. I'm glad you found the cabin. Thanks, Sandy

Relax, Rejuvinate, Reconnect.

  • 5 of 5

Mountain Rendezvous was the relaxing and secluded retreat we were looking for. A quaint log cabin in the woods! The comfortable vacation home was immaculate and well-equipped. The accommodations were quite comfortable for all of us! Our family spent the evenings with dinner on the deck and at the campfire, and the days at the lake. As a bonus there was convenient storage parking near the cottage for our boat.We would definitely recommend this location to anyone and would enjoy visiting in the fall again ourselves.
