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

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

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)!

Family Christmas Celebration

  • 5 of 5

Over the last eight years our family of 14 has enjoyed coming to the Hideout to celebrate the Christmas holidays together as often as it was possible for everyone to come. There is plenty of room for all of us. With six children, we still have plenty of space for adult and kid activities, and if the weather doesn't cooperate there is space downstairs to work off any excess energy. This has become a favorite place for all of us. and requested by the children. The owners have always taken a personal interest in making our time special by decorating for the holiday, and the house is clean and beautifully furnished. We would not hesitate to recommend the Hideout to other friends and family.

Family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 voted this as one of our favorites. It housed our Thanksgiving family gathering very comfortably - setting was very private, we loved the property, wrap around porch, ping pong & pool table downstairs was a plus and good for kids of all ages. Lots to do in the area - we only had time for Trough Creek State Park which had great trails (the Balancing Rock was the highlight!). Very nice barn if you have horses with plenty of places to ride. Plan to be back!

Family Fun Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoys coming to the Hideout regularly for our Family Fun Weekend! It is relaxing, clean, beautiful, spacious, and homey. Despite a long weekend with near continuous rain and 7 children, we had an absolutely wonderful time because of the huge covered porch on 3 sides of the house. There was even enough space for the children to ride their rib sticks together! The surroundings are so peaceful. The amount of space allows for individuals to be at different places enjoying games, chatting, reading, etc., yet there is lots of dining space for meals together and room in the living room area to gather together for a movie or family reading times. A great place to get away!

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

We had 15 people stay at The Hideout at the end of August. It was absolutely beautiful and peaceful. There was enough room for everyone to do their own thing and then we could all have dinner together in the very open dining room. The best part about The Hideout is the wrap around porch - it made it easy for all of us to be able to sit outside and enjoy each other's company. The owner is very quick to answer any questions that you have and is very accommodating. There isn't anything bad I have to say about our stay at The Hideout. It felt like we were right at home.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had such a nice time and we couldn't agree with you more about the porch! Future Hideout friends if you love just sitting on the porch watching a nice rain shower, turkeys, or deer in the front field, you too will love the Hideout porch! Check out our photo galleries... You will see what we mean!
