The Chalets of Raystown Home # 1. From the moment you arrive at The Chocolate Moose Chalet, you are surrounded by the natural mountainous beauty of the Raystown Lake area. The chalet sits on almost 6 wooded acres of private land and was built in late 2011. This wonderful HIGH END rustic getaway offers a perfect balance of peace and quiet with convenient modern amenities. The home includes custom Amish hickory cabinets, granite countertops, handmade hickory floors, as well as as knotty pine walls and ceilings throughout the entire home.

A large, inviting master suite with private bath highlights the main living area of the Chalet. A large dining area and expansive living room complete the open floor plan theme throughout the home. An upper level includes 2 full bedrooms, a full bathroom with tub/shower combo, and two additional sleeping lofts that can be converted from seating areas to 2 queen pull out sleeper sofas.

The finished lower level includes 1300 sq. ft. of finished space! Within the finished basement are 2 additional bedrooms (2 twin beds and 1 King bed), a full bathroom, and a 700 sq. ft. recreation room. The recreation room has an abundance of couches, a pull out sofa sleeper, a 55 inch flat panel TV, Blu Ray DVD player, and a card/puzzle/game table and chairs.

A relaxing covered porch overlooking the woods spans over half the home and is approximately 1200 sq. ft. Plus, the chalet now includes a wheelchair accessible ramp!

If you are looking for the perfect combination of rustic looks, sprawling size, backwoods privacy, modern amenities, and close proximity to Raystown Lake and 7 Points Marina (Beach, Aligrippis, Hiking Trails, Boating) , the Chocolate Moose Chalet is a great choice to “get back to nature in a modern way!”

About Michael & Karen Fedash

Hershey, PA as our place to call home. We have 1 son, age 7 and 1 daughter age 5. We enjoy spending time at the chalets, boating, relaxing, and spending time with our children and family.

Michael & Karen Fedash purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Michael & Karen Fedash chose Huntingdon

The property was the perfect combination of size (6 acres), privacy, and location. Only 3 miles from Raystown Lake and 35 minutes from State College (as we are both Alumni of Penn State), along with it being only 100 miles from Hershey gave us the perfect excuse to have a second home that offered so much convenience for our activities outside of work.

What makes this cabin unique

The home boasts SPRAWLING size (3700 sq foot) privacy, a 1200 sq foot wrap around covered porch, along with a fire pit, and spaciousness everywhere you turn. As you sit on the porch in the evenings, with the lights turned down low on the porch, it doesnt get much better than seeing the lightning bugs flash in the woods while enjoying a glass of wine with good conversation between family and friends.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My group had a lovely time at Chocolate Moose. The owner, Mike, was extremely helpful and readily available if we had any questions. The house is spacious and perfect for large groups. Would recommend!

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5

The Chocolate Moose Chalet was an excellent spot for our work retreat. There were ample beds for everyone to sleep separately, and we appreciated the zone-specific heating (which kept us warm, despite the chilly November weather!). The kitchen, living room, and den worked great for our meetings and communal meal-prep. Cable & wifi worked great too. Lovely place all together.

Spacious and Clean

  • 5 of 5

The Chocolate Moose Chalet is beautiful. It is nicely decorated and was very clean. We especially appreciated all the bathrooms which had ample towel racks. The fridge is huge and the kitchen also had an empty closet which was very nice to store food, paper supplies, etc. The large covered porch was great for our grand kids to play on. The house is very child friendly with gates at the stairways. We would definitely recommend it.

Great location, beautiful home, very peaceful and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at both Chocolate Moose and Sugar Maple. We had a family reunion and created lots of great memories... already planning 2019! I have rented many other properties all over and the owners are the most generous with their supplies. There is everything you need to get started, which makes renting so much easier. Plenty of seating inside and out, lots of places for people to gather in small or large groups. Weather was perfect... everything was perfect. It's a great place to gather friends and family but I imagine it is just as great to rent and 'unplug' and just enjoy the peacefulness of the house and the surroundings! We'll be back!!!
