About the Property

5 Bdrm-3.5 Bath on 6 Acre Min from 7 Pt Marina - Call/Email for accurate price

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!”

The Raystown Lake region of Huntingdon County has many things to do, including State College/Penn State University, the Lake (Raystown, a 29 mile long man made lake, the largest is Pennsylvania), Altoona, and the Aligrippis Bike Trail System (now ranked #4 in the nation for mountain biking and hiking). It is 10 minutes from golf courses, 10 minutes from downtown Huntingdon for shopping, groceries, restaurants, etc., 1 hour from Blue Knob Ski Resort, and 1 hour from Beaver Stadium. 7 Points Marina at Raystown Lake is only 5 minutes from the home. It was recently voted the best marina in the United States.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My wife and I grew up in the North East part of Pennsylvania. After spending a few years in the Washington DC area during my wife's graduate schooling, we decided to relocate closer to where we grew up and chose Hershey, PA as our place to call home. We have 1 son and 1 daughter, both under age 4. We enjoy spending time at the chalet, boating, relaxing, and spending time with our children and family.

Why the Owner Chose Huntingdon, PA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
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.
