Felt just like home....

  • 5 of 5

Having owned the Hideout since 2007, to be able to go back as a guest to celebrate my birthday with family was a treat. The Hideout as always was clean, warm, inviting with room for all. We will certainly go back! Thanks for a wonderful visit!

Spur of The Moment

  • 5 of 5

Great location and easy to find! The wildlife was wonderful to watch, from deer in the front and back yard to watching the wild turkeys. It was quite and relaxing. The inside is huge and very clean. People sat in the living room and still interacted with people at the kitchen table. The bedrooms were roomy. There is three upstairs and three downstairs. Plenty of bathrooms and large enough to move around in. There is a large laundry room you can store stuff in. Will definitely stay again next year. Tammie S.

Another Great Stay at the Hideout!

  • 5 of 5

Have been returning to the property for a few years. Love that we can take our horses with us and ride the Rothrock State Forest trails and other connecting trails. Lots to do if you enjoy the outdoors- hiking, riding horse, fishing, etc. Plus, very peaceful location for lots of quiet time and opportunities to be off "the grid".

Thank you for yet another visit to the Hideout, your repeat business is appreciated very much. Future Hideout friends bring your horses for a vacation too! They will love it and you won't regret bringing them.

Clean, Spacious, Great provisions!

  • 5 of 5

Our family...children and grandchildren enjoyed this spacious, clean cabin located close to Raystown Lake. There were plenty of kitchen supplies, ample towels and wash cloths and freshly made beds. We made use of the washer and dryer with swimming and boating. The family kept expressing what a nice cabin this was. We've been to a number over the years and this one ranked high on our list. We appreciated the excellent communication with the owners. They always got back to us in a timely fashion and were very helpful and considerate. Our family would highly recommend this cabin.

Great place for a large family

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this house. Lots of room to spread out, which allowed the kids to play without being on top of others trying to relax. It's close to nature and great for getting away from it all!

One thing I would note is that it is a distance (minimum 20 minutes) from things at raystown lake. Its not physically far but the gravel roads make the trip take a bit longer. Coming from the west was a bit rough on the minivan due to ground clearance but no trouble for the pickup truck. The distance was fine for us because we loved walking the property. The trails on the property were great. It's close to Trough Creek State Park, Tatman beach (which was practically vacant when we went), and lake Raystown resort (great Pontoon Boat rentals)!

About David E. Pelletier, Agent for Owner

We are the Spur of the Moment Associates! We bought the Hideout at a public sale and had no intention of buying anything! We didn't even have a check book with us! Luckily, another set of friends were along, they are the couple in the middle, and the Mrs. had a checkbook and the Spur of the Moment Associates were formed!


David E. Pelletier, Agent for Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why David E. Pelletier, Agent for Owner chose Todd

The Raystown Lake area, located in the Alleghenies, is a beautiful place... Peace and tranquility abound with many outdoor activities to suit all the levels 'adventurous'! A great place for quiet and trail riding!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a beautiful home!!! We were able to use the Hideout for my wedding as well as a family get together. It is hard to find a rental house that can fit us all and the Hideout was perfect!!! I have been in contact with the owner for a a handful of months prior to our trip. David was so helpful with making my special day possible!! We had a small intimate wedding this June. The property was perfect for an outdoor wedding and with lots of help from David everything came together perfect! I would highly recommend the Hideout to anyone that is wanting to go riding, have a reunion or just getaway! Beautiful place
